"Several years ago my family starting renting homes for our family vacations. Our family of 4 sometimes brings girlfriends and friends along, but this time it was just the four of us. So while the house was larger than needed it is a beautiful place in great condition... the best of any of the homes we have ever rented. The house is located on the Galloping Goose run and is probably 100 yds from that actual run ... it requires a little bit of poling on ski's to get to/from the run, but nothing too strenuous at all. Inside the home has a beautiful timber frame look that is very open. We had fun playing pool on the lowest level and enjoyed congregating in the den after a day of skiing. We ate out every night, but the home had the set up and all the pots/pans/outdoor grill etc. you'd ever want for a large meal at "home."
The owner stores their car in the garage, leaving plenty of room for a single 4wd to park in the heated garage and turn around to exit the driveway. It would be challenging to have multiple cars at this residence in the snow .... the drive is steep enough that you don't want to back down it and there is not any room outside the garage to get another car out of the way.
The wifi and "home office" area were great for me as I had at least 2 hours a day of keeping up my obligations to the working world. The TV's were the only area where our family's habits were much different from the owners ... at home we have many HD flat screens with all the DirecTV channels and this home had basic cable (I think) and standard definition TVs. For this time of year that was zero issue because our sports teams weren't playing, but it was something some renters might wish for more at certain times of year.
This was our first trip to Telluride and it is one of the best, least crowded ski resorts we have ever been to. This home seems typical of the many beautiful large homes you see alongside the slopes on this mountain. It is a beautiful home in a beautiful place .... we hope to come back to it one day soon. The owner of the home also seems to be a very nice person who is very reasonable to interact with .... I don't see how anyone renting this home could come away disappointed."
