About Lissa Paak
My parents purchased this home in 1963, and it has been enjoyed by our family since then. The house was completely renovated and remodeled in 1998, (following the Historic and Architectural Review Commission recommendations). We love Telluride, the people and the area.

Why Lissa Paak chose Telluride
My parents came to Telluride in 1962 to visit a fellow artist. During that trip they fell in love with Telluride's natural beauty. This was 10 years before the ski area was started and most of the houses had been abandoned as the mines reduced, and finally ceased, production. Mom and Dad were academics in Albuquerque and had summers off. In their search for a summer escape from the New Mexico heat they thought of Telluride. When they came to town to look at properties they had to go to Norwood to even find a real estate agent! They choose the house because it was on the sunny side of the canyon and is elevated a bit to get great views. Most homes at that time were boarded up and had no paint on them anymore, so somehow, they managed to see through the deterioration and choose a great place in a wonderful location.
What makes this House unique
The house is 3 blocks from main street, so it's quiet and private. There are wonderful views out the windows and from the front porch (a favorite spot to sit in the morning with a cup of coffee). It's easy to get anywhere in Telluride by walking. While we have a car, we typically do not use it when we're in Telluride. We will walk or bike or even ski down to the gondola if there is enough snow on the streets. Our neighbors are all families that have lived there for years, making the area very peaceful and friendly.

Lissa and Gordon were the best hosts!
Their home is tucked away just up the hill from the mainstream of Telluride. Just close enough, but quiet and peaceful. There is a beautiful mountain view from the large living room window! Perfect for just a couple, but can easily accommodate a large family.
Property was very clean, beautiful renovation
Owners are great, responsive, clear communication, and did an incredible job with this historic home renovation. Great ski storage, pots pans, everything we needed. House is a little walk from Gondola but we enjoyed the walk only 10 minute walk. Home is on the and quiet and sunny side of town. Perfect house for a couple in master bedroom with teenage kids in loft. We will be back in this house in the future, great value, and pride knowing the owners put their hearts into this home. Thank You!!!
Very comfortable home that was very well stocked. There was nothing we were in need of.
Overall experience was great, we had a very relaxing trip.
Loved our stay
We had a great stay at this property. It is perfect for a large family, or group up to seven people. It was spacious, yet cozy at the same time. It is walking distance from main street and the gondola over to Mountain Village. The kitchen is well stocked and so are the bathrooms and bedrooms. Would definitely stay here again!
Our guests took exceptional care of our home and left the house nearly spotless. Our communications back and forth were timely, pleasant and thoughtful. They would be welcome guests anywhere and we will look forward to their return should they wish to visit Telluride again.
Great property and great location. Everything was well organized and very clean.
Loved the place. Cant wait to return. The owners were super helpful. The check in was easy and seamless. The home was well stocked. I can't wait to return.
