Note from the homeowner: We moved to Telluride in 1962. We were a mining engineer and school teacher. We bought a house in town in 1963. We sold it in 1979 after being gone from Telluride for three years. After longing for Telluride and the mountains – we bought a condo in the Viking Lodge #209 in 1992. We like the Viking because it sits between Lift 7 and the Gondola and it is a quiet area. The River Trail is handy and fun to walk on. We appreciate it being a 2nd-floor end unit. We use the unit ourselves for skiing, hiking, 4-wheeling in the summer, and Grandma and Me trips.

Not what the description offered.
After renting for years and years on VRBO all across the Southwest, Canada and Mexico we were a bit disappointed by this experience. The room description gave no square footage yet stated the unit was good for a party of 6 and described the unit as having a hallway leading to different parts of the unit. There is no hallway, it was tiny, dark and the twin bunks were not the actual width of a twin bed. Our family of 5 found these pictures to be very happy and bright and yet the unit was dark and cramped. It was really frustrating to be in such a tiny unit with poor beds. We ended up using an air mattress for one child and had two kids sleep on the couch pull out. The property management does not offer cleaning just towel replacement and trash removal one time over 6 days. It was cramped and did not have enough space for 6 people let alone a family of 5 with small kids. Unfortunately the pictures led us to book it. We wished so badly that we had spent more on accommodations as the only plus to this unit was that it was "affordable". The town was booked solid, the cancellation fee was the total bill - we were stuck!
For two people this would be a decent unit to rent.
Great Stay In Telluride
The Viking lodge was easy to find when we arrived at 1am. The door code entry was super convenient to use to get access lat night. Parking want too hard to come by. Good view form the front porch, close walk to the lift. About 5 min walk to downtown which was faster than the free buss even. Kitchen had almost everything we needed in it (well stocked for the space). Cool history of the town of Telluride told form the owners time there. Hot tub and pool were nice and other guests were friendly. Would come back no question.
Thank you for your great review of Viking 209. The owners of this unit moved to Telluride many decades ago, and have much to share in terms of history! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed the space and the proximity to town. We hope to have you back soon!
