Viking Lodge Apartment with a Patio Near the River

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

This 1-bedroom/1-bath condo on the ground floor is all you need to be close to historic downtown Telluride, the ski area and Lift #7, and even has a year-round pool and hot tub.

Beds: queen bed, queen sleeper sofa, and a built-in bunk bed.

This relatively accessible unit at the Viking Lodge apartments uses space efficiently for classy affordability. Entering the condo, you're in the bedroom with a queen bed, 32-inch flat screen TV with DVD player, and bunk bed with two twin beds. Across from the bunk beds there is the ample vanity area outside the bathroom with a shower-tub combo.

In the next room is the kitchenette with granite counter tops and clear-pine cabinets, two-burner cook-top, full-size refrigerator, and dishwasher, as well as microwave, toaster, and toaster-oven for complete, simple home-cooked meals. Or just toast and tea.

Also in this room is a round dining table for four, and a sitting area with a queen sleeper-sofa, 32-inch flat screen TV (HDMI) with DVD player. Another exterior door leads to a patio with table and 2 chairs, open to the shared lawn, River Trail, and views/sounds of the San Miguel River.

The complex has a year-round swimming pool and common outdoor hot tub. There are charcoal grills near the pool for use by all. There is parking in the private lot, permits required. The common laundry room has new coin-operated washers and dryers. No pets, per HOA rules.

The base of Lift #7 (Coonskin Base) is 200 yards away, the free in-town shuttle Galloping Goose stops at the corner out front, and the Town Park is straight east (up-river) in a 15-minute walk.

A note from the homeowner: When we saw these Viking Lodge riverside units on our first trip to Telluride, we decided to visit again and chose to stay there. And eventually, we bought one. It’s just the right size for us. It has a beautiful backyard you can easily access, just a few steps from the breakfast table. As an updated unit, it’s one of the nicer Viking apartments. Being able to enjoy a pool and a hot tub right on site was a big plus for us. Lift 7 is a block away, and the Gondola a short walk from Viking.

It was just ok

  • 2 of 5

It states it’s big enough for 4 people but I definitely would not recommend it. It’s a motel room with a kitchen. It’s just ok. If I were to go back to Telluride with friends I would not rent this place.

What a great time in Telluride!

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for our family of 5. We had a wedding on the mountain and it was in walking distance to the Gondola. It was clean and the management was very helpful to answer any questions we had. We would stay again.

You get what you pay for

  • 2 of 5

I'll try to be balanced with this review. This property is at the low end of the price scale for Telluride which is pretty steep. You get what you pay for. I'll start with the pros: Convenient location on the west side of town. Easy walk to the gondola (goes to Mountain Village) and to everything in Telluride. Beautiful trail along the river that takes you to the gondola and to restaurants, shopping, etc. More room for a family of 4 or 5 compared to comparably priced hotel options. Cons: like many places, no AC. Was there in mid August with temps in high 70s during the day so the condo was uncomfortable. No fan (ceiling or otherwise) and the only window that could open was jammed shut. Furnishings and fixtures are pretty dated (circa late 80s is my guess). Carpet was pretty dingy. Couple of stains on window and door shades. Otherwise a pretty good value but that's not saying much for Telluride.
