Notes:
On the property there is a unattached garage that is for the owners use. It has a studio loft that my wife and I may periodically stay in. It is across the parking area from the house and does not impact the privacy of the house. My wife and I stay there almost exclusively for early morning snow removal from the drive way when we anticipate a heavy dump. Snow can fall heavily at times and may need to be removed more than once a day to maintain the accessibility. thank you

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. It's a beautiful home and property with fantastic views of Wilson Peak. The driveway has two sharp switchbacks that I don't think I'd want to drive up/down during winter months with anything less than a 4x4 vehicle, but it was easily manageable during the summer in any vehicle.

A really fun family place!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the patio was beautiful. We had a great time around the fire pit in the evening. It was great to drive to the village and take the free Gondola into Telluride. Everything was great.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a beautiful location, just a short drive from Telluride's mountain village. We had a party of 9, 4 adults and 5 kids, and felt very comfortable with the space. The view of Mt. Wilson from the house is incredible and the backyard patio area was a great place to relax with everyone. Great stay and highly recommend.

Just OK

  • 2 of 5

Hot-tub did not work properly at first, but we finally got it hot by our last night there. Beds were uncomfortable, everyone had trouble sleeping. Very few windows had screens, so you were either hot or letting mosquitos and bugs in. Toilet downstairs didn't work. Location was convenient, but a lot of traffic noise. Has the potential to be an awesome house, but it was not in great repair. Fire pit was nice. Kitchen was good

Wonderful place for the bride's family

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us (all over 24) stayed for 4 days in this house. It was a great place for the bride and her bridesmaids (and family) to get ready for the wedding in Telluride. There are numerous beautiful photo locations for the morning of the wedding. With so many levels, lofts, and nooks, people could get away for some alone time when needed. The layout of the kitchen, dining, living room and deck was very nice for everyone to be together with the groom's family for a brunch too. There is parking for at least 4 vehicles, unlike many places we looked at in Telluride or Mtn Village. The views are amazing of Mt Wilson, and we had deer or elk visit us three out of the four mornings. We would love to rent this place again for a family get together.

Beautiful property. Beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

Expansive, beautiful property amidst a hillside forest of aspen trees, with plenty of room for large families or groups of friends. Gorgeous views of Mt. Wilson and wildlife all around. Deer, bear, etc. Just a quick drive to the gondola or downtown Telluride itself. Don't miss out!
