It is a base for adventure, it is a local Telluride icon with its own special place in the history of Telluride, it IS a tourist attraction and is a favorite stop for tour guides. It is also away from it all which can make it romantic or the perfect getaway to be with family and friends. There are many activities just out the front door…if you want to go out. The Observatory. Extremely. Comfortable. Backcountry.
