About Chris Lawson
My wife, our 2 growing children, and I love to ski and hike and bike and do everything great outdoors. I have skied all over the world and Telluride wins the award for beauty, and what a phenomenal ski area it is for everyone, so I built this home here. I have a mountain bike and just bought a dual sport motorcycle last summer to enjoy all the dirt roads in the area. I ride my mountain bike home from Telluride as much as possible, and go soul searching on my motorcycle almost every nice evening.
Chris Lawson purchased this House in 2013
Why Chris Lawson chose Placerville
This home is in a beautiful rural but convenient location which is a very scenic, 15 minute drive to Telluride's Lift 7. A great restaurant named the Angler is just behind the house, and there are upvalley and down valley bus stops there and just down valley on Route 145. During the week, it makes it easier if someone wants to go early, get up there at lunch time, or come home a little later than the others. We love Downvalley Park, just a 3 minute walk away. It has a field, heated bathrooms with real toilets, hiking trails, a stocked pond, and the San Miguel River as well for fishing. Also, Sawpit Mercantile and M&M Mercantile (both markets with liquor stores) are only 5 minutes away by car. This home lets you have all that Telluride has to offer, except the crowds, while being cheaper, roomier, quieter, and lower down in elevation, meaning it's warmer, sunnier, and easier to acclimate to for those with altitude issues.
What makes this House unique
I'm happy that my home is away from the crowds in Telluride and Mountain Village. Go out during the day, and hike, bike, or ski, and then come on back and relax or hit then Angler restaurant. Then take a walk over to the park with its own bathrooms, picnic tables, hiking trails, playground, pond full of trout and wildlife, and the river, over and over! Take a car or the bus to town. Take your bike along and ride downhill back home. No problems here with parking, and lots of elbow room to be comfortable in the picturesque and charming little neighborhood. The home has floor-to-roof windows showing the scenic red rocks and greenery, a spacious and modern kitchen, living room and loft, 3 large bedrooms with King or Queen Beds, 3 full baths, a loft area for quiet lounging and extra sleepers (up to 4), and a beautiful open floor plan that brings mother nature in. The stars are unreal in this area as there is no artificial light, and it is as quiet as can be.

Very nice home in convenient location to Telluride!
The home was very nice and spacious. Placerville is a quiet location away from the craziness of Telluride and has some great trails off of the county park just down the road. It doesn't have all the amenities of some rentals (it would have been nice to have chairs to sit outside at night) and there is a bit of clean-up involved at the end BUT for the price and the size it was perfect for us!
Great place for vacation home
We had a great time at this places. The features provided by the owner were excellent.
Very convenient to Telluride. We loved the nearby park. The caretaker, Erich, was very welcoming and friendly; clear, courteous communication with the owner, Chris. The only downside was that we didn''t have enough vacation time to stay longer!
Very good! Downvalley Park should not be downplayed. It is very nice.
Caretaker was very attentive to anything we needed
Great place, quiet and has easy access to hiking areas and Telluride
Glad you had such a good time.
Perfect little cabin for a nice relaxed visit.
a trouble free experience with a nice comfortable cabin in a great location especially for families with younger kids. The San miguel county park is right down the road and access to Ouray and Telluride are both easy.
Glad you liked the Ski Cabin. Even just this past summer, I discovered some truly spectacular places within a 20 minute drive.
Lovely & peaceful mountain retreat.
An A-frame house with floor to roof views of Red Rock Cliffs from home on the sunny side of the valley at 7450 feet of elevation makes it warmer and easier to adjust to than Telluride/Mountain Village (8900 and 9400 feet). A great restaurant named the Angler is right behind the house. The Bus Stops to/from Telluride are there and just down valley. Sawpit Mercantile, Gas, and Liquor, M&M Mercantile, Beer, and Liquor, and the Post Office are within a 5 minute drive. Downvalley County Park with a great fishing hole on the San Miguel River is a 3 minute walk. Peaceful neighborhood. Beautiful 18 minute ride to and from Telluride/Mountain Village. Plenty of free parking. We have never needed 4WD from this house, as the 250 feet of road from Route 145 to the house is almost flat and we do not get as much snow as Telluride/Mountain Village. Route 145 is cleared of snow well.
Additional information about rental rates
Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed. Wash the sheets and linens and put them back where they belong if you have time. Leave a note to this effect. A minimal cleaning and inspection fee of $60 is usually charged. If extraordinary activity is required by the caretaker, it will be charged at a rate of $25 an hour. Usually, renters get all but the $60 fee back because they leave the place in great shape. In the unlikely event that you may have to clean on your arrival, you will be compensated at a rate of $25 an hour for your time. I am always available by phone to assist you with any issues that arise.
