"Our family decided to come to Telluride for Fall Break and after spending more time than I would care to admit surfing VRBO we elected to stay in Mountain Village in this condo. Admittedly, this was my first choice from the beginning but it was a little more than several other options and I didn't want to overpay without feeling comfortable that the price was justified. Turns out I should have just booked it from the beginning.
Kris, the owner, is accessible, easy to deal with and has clearly put a lot of thought and love into her place. Over the course of our week staying here, I can't think of one thing that was missing or we wished she had done differently. The kitchen is well stocked with tupperware, spices, pots and pans, etc. There is even a crock pot which excited my wife despite the fact we never used it. The towels, bedding are both plentiful and of high quality. Closets and storage are so well organized we only needed a fraction of available space. We found games, movies, even plenty of pens in case you have to get some work done. This condo is a very easy place to feel completely at home.
And then there is the location. The deck opens directly to a path that is 20-30 yards from the Mountain Village Gondola Station as well as a great town center with several restaurants, bars and coffee houses. The Gondolas take you everywhere you would need to go (market, parking structure and down to the Town of Telluride). Although the unit is that close to everything it is tucked just far enough behind trees that you still have privacy when in the hot tub.
The decor and furnishings are very nice. I guess the best way to say this is that this condo is furnished for living not for renting. Even my 10 year old son made a point to be careful because the place was so nice. If you are looking for a place this size, I can't imagine you will find a better option than this condo.
Also, this was our first trip to Telluride. For those of you that have not been, it is breathtakingly beautiful and well worth the additional travel from Denver. Mountain Village is it's own community a few miles from "town." It is such a cool little place, we didn't actually visit the town of Telluride until our last day. Everything you want to do, including going into Telluride, is accessible via a free Gondola system. Highlights of the trip were a drive to Ouray (take the last dollar dirt road) and dinner at Allreds at the top of the mountain."
