About Cheryl C Miller

I moved to the Telluride Region in 1987 and have never looked back. Bud and I got married on a beautiful ranch under Mount Willson, raised 3 children out on the mesas and now enjoy our ranch on Iron Springs Mesa.

Cheryl C Miller purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Cheryl C Miller chose Placerville

The Lovenest, on Specie Mesa, was built in 1999 by my dad and his wife as a personal getaway from their hectic life. We have found the cottage to be beautifully designed for just this purpose.

What makes this cottage unique

It is beautifully located to take full advantage of the mountain views. Sitting on 40 acres you never have to see another person while it is only minutes away from the world class resort of Telluride.

Amazing views and a great place for complete rest!

  • 5 of 5

The views are amazing! We loved that it was away from everything and you were in quiet solitude. We did go to town and to Telluride for breakfast and it was great. We will stay here again!

Ideal Quiet Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Too many great things about this cabin. It’s clean, cozy, and remote.

We would like to stay here every year.

The mountain experience was thorough; this wasn’t a resort, and we were safely alone in the woods.

If you’re able to drive a bit away from town, the Lovenest is an incredible stay at a nice rate.

34 nights over 3 years and still wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated on the perfect spot for views from every room day and night. Cheryl and Sarah were lovely hosts. They made sure we were comfortable and welcomed us as family. This was our third trip in 3 years. We have spent 34 nights in the Lovenest and treasure out time there together. We got 5 inches of snow while we were there which made the trip even more perfect. The town of Placerville and Telluride are treasures. The people friendly and welcoming. A great vacation again!

Breath-taking views!

  • 4 of 5

The house sits on the edge of a 500’ cliff, looking down into a canyon, and distance views of snow capped Rocky Mountain peaks. My only disappointment was that three of the large windows have condensation between the panes and this does distract one’s viewing experience.

Remote, pleasantly quiet location featuring breath-taking views!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Cheryl,

Thank You for allowing us the pleasure of experiencing "The Lovenest"!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet, the great views, and the abundant wildlife!

We have visited Telluride many times over the years and simply love this area. It was so nice to be close to town(20 miles)to visit and dine yet removed from the "ongoing" festival scene and crowds. We enjoyed hiking, mountain biking, and excellent fly-fishing very close to your property. The weather could not have been better!

A highlight we will remember forever is on day two of our stay a hummingbird flew in through one of the open doors and spent the entire day hovering in the northeast corner window unable to escape. When we returned later it was very tired and happy to just sit on the window ledge and watch us. As dark approach I turned on a floor lamp and set it in the doorway by the open door hoping to lure it out. As it turns out it was to weak to fly out and ended up on the floor in the kitchen. Figuring it was a lost cause, I gently picked it up and set it outside on the ground expecting to find it dead the next morning. As it turns out it recovered, flew off, and returned a day later(outside), back to normal! Hardy little guy!

Your home is beautiful and the perfect spot for a couple to retreat to! We can't wait to visit again!

Thank You!
