Property description

ALPENGLOW RANCH offers some of the most spectacular, jaw-dropping views in the entire Telluride region. This unique 'top of the world' location features 360 degree views from atop 12 acres with a pond. The spectacular San Juan Mountains surrounding Telluride viewed from inside or from the wrap-around flagstone terrace are always inspiring. Rarely is this level of view property made available for vacation rentals, throughout the United States, and virtually never at such reasonable prices. Alpenglow Ranch is a work in progress, and as such, there may be piles of stone for future rock work or the like, stacked in the rear out of sight. This is one reason we are able to offer this property at such a low price.

Inside Alpenglow ranch, the glassy Great Room was designed for entertaining, and is a joy for even the chef to use. The single level design makes it easy to get around this spacious, comfortable 2200 sq ft country home.

Watching the seasons go by your window is a constant pleasure, as well as the wildlife that is always around, sometimes even looking in the windows! You can expect to see Deer, Elk, Fox, Ermine, Rabbit, Hawk and Eagle, with Duck, Goose and Great Blue Heron hanging out in the pond. Topped off by the morning and evening alpenglow, this house is a wonderful place to observe nature at its most beautiful, in a private setting, just a short, beautiful drive from everything Telluride has to offer.

Throughout the spring and summer, beautiful pastures on the horizon have horses grazing in pastures below. On the road up to the house, new colts with their mares can be seen gamboling in the grassy fields.

In the master suite, the master bath features a beautiful antique claw-foot tub for 2, and also boasts awesome views. Throughout the house, on this sunny hilltop, and with infloor heating throughout, it's always cozy at Alpenglow Ranch!


We look forward to being your hosts, and welcoming you personally to Telluride! You can count on a thoroughly unforgettable vacation experience.
