Luxurious and upscale, Vacasa's Mountain Village vacation rentals offer a getaway for groups of family and friends looking to experience the warm hospitality and the surrounding recreation that Colorado has to offer.
At 9,545 feet above sea level, Mountain Village is the base location of the Telluride Ski Resort, on the slopes above Telluride, Colorado. It's a six mile shuttle ride or drive from the regional airport, but there's no need for a car while you're here. Guests of our Mountain Village vacation rentals will enjoy quick access to the gondola system, offering a scenic 13 minute ride from Mountain Village to town for free. From the gondola to the town's free bus system, transportation is easy here.
Teaming with recreation, eateries, and shops, this mini-town is almost completely self-sustaining, and offers ample opportunities for guests to experience the best that Southwest Colorado has to offer.
Our Mountain Village vacation rentals offer first-class access to one of Colorado's most popular ski resorts. Like many of our rentals in the famous resort of Breckenridge, some of these Telluride area lodges are even ski-in, ski-out, where guests only have to put on their snow gear, click on their skis or boards, and go! The base of Chair 4 offers access to most of Telluride's extensive, varied terrain, and guests need only walk a short distance to get to the Adult Magic Carpet ski lift and the top of Chair 1 for newbies. The gondola connects Mountain Village Center to Town Plaza Station for guests who may be in Mountain Village but slightly away from the base of the slopes.
Mountain Village is also home to several winter sports shops that offer rentals, repairs, and merchandise, plus the main building for the Telluride Ski & Snowboard School, ticket sales, and the Kid's Magic Carpet. Private lessons, child care, adaptive sports, and ski bike classes are all available to guests and are supervised by enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. For more skiing opportunities, look north to the mountain oasis of Vail.
Mountain Village in wintertime is a snowy wonderland filled with people from all over the world. Guests will find ice skating and a community firepit in the Plaza, plus many eateries and shops. Take the kids to family-friendly spots like Hot Diggity Dog for amazing hot dogs loaded with toppings, Crazy Elk for pizza, and the Sweet Life for candy and ice cream (or a fun T-shirt!). Those not traveling with children will enjoy adult-friendly spots like Tomboy Tavern for apres ski cocktails and beer and monster-size hamburgers while you watch the busy slopes and listen to multiple languages and accents floating about you.
When the snow melts, our Mountain Village vacation rentals transform from the hub of activity to a removed retreat with a fine balance between activity and relaxation. Take it easy with a visit to the Market on the Plaza during the day or a Movie on the Lawn at dusk. Set the kids up with the "Gravity Play Combo", including bungee trampolines, a rope course, and Water Walkers (human-sized bubble-like pool floats). Try your hand at bouldering Adventure Rock.
Bikers will adore Mountain Village for its access to great trails varying in degrees of difficulty - just put your bike on the gondola rack and head out. Fantastic views and a gorgeous landscape are guaranteed no matter where you end up. Try disc golf on Double Cabins, or regular golf at the Telluride Golf Course. If you enjoy water, visit Elk Pond for a romantic kayak or canoe paddle, a waterside picnic, or a bit of fishing.
Don't forget your hiking shoes - the San Juan Mountains in which this scenic hamlet sits are covered in trails for all kinds of hikers, for those seeking anything from a casual stroll through town to climbing a local fourteener. Our Mountain Village vacation homes make for excellent Telluride festival lodging, starting in May with Telluride MountainFilm and ending in September with the Telluride Film Festival which both include showings, lectures, and meet-and-greets right in Mountain Village.
A mountain escape full of down-to-earth hospitality with upscale glamor, perfect for groups of friends or a family escaping to a scenic, magical place of wonder and high places, these Mountain Village vacation rentals will inspire, center, and connect you.
