About Shawn Wells

We are new owners that are not able to live in Telluride year around. We would like to offer our house for rental when we are not available.

Shawn Wells purchased this house in 2012

Why Shawn Wells chose Telluride Area

This house is amazing in character, views and privacy. It is 1.5 miles from the entrance to Telluride Ski Resort. It is extremely comfortable and enjoyable at a fraction of the price of Mountain Village or Telluride. Enjoy your own private home in the mountains.

What makes this house unique

Easy access to Mountain Village, Telluride Ski Resort, Telluride Regional Airport. It offers access to year around mountain activities. Skiing, snowboarding, golf, festivals, bike riding, fishing, hiking, jeeping, shopping, animal watching and unsurpassed mountain views.

Great Telluride Retreat !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Shawn's home was perfect....minutes to the Mountain Village..with restaurants ..markets and especially free parking at the gondola that you can ride right into the town..(.especially breathtaking at night.) We had daily visits from the mule deers in the yard, and had a nice camp fire at the pit. The home was very clean, the kitchen was well appointed and the view of Mount Wilson was spectacular !!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had an amazing time here. And probably only used half of this big place. My 2 boys loved the house! It has everything. 3 cool sleeping lofts that you access with ladders! They felt like they were sleeping in a tree house. 2 of the lofts had a picture window so they could look out at the forest and stars as they fell asleep each night. We ended each day by roasting marshmallows in the fire-pit and hopping in the hot tub. The view is Amazing! We found the house clean, stocked with everything we needed and the funky open lay-out made it a really fun place to stay.

The location is really great too. It is located 5 minutes from the Mountainside Village. This is ideal because parking can be challenging in downtown Telluride. From here you can park in the Free parking garage at Mountianside Village and take the free gondola all the way in to downtown Telluride. It takes just 15 minutes! There is also a nice grocery store in the Mountainside Village if you need anything. Very convenient. We would definitely return.

Quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

The views from this home were beautiful and the leaves changing were gorgeous. Deer grazed around the property in the morning and evening. Though we weren't able to get in the first night because of a mistake in our booking information, VRBO took care of the problem and Chris made it up to us and was very apologetic.

Beautiful, Secluded yet Great Views

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could ask for. This is the best time of year for seeing the color changes, first weekend of October. Greatest mountain view with beautiful tree color change in process. Great from upstairs living room and outside. House fully equipped. Very peaceful, plenty of deer to view out the windows. Trees all around. Highly recommended. We will stay here again next time we visit. The Wells are great to work with. Thanks Rudy

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
