If you're looking for a mountain getaway, complete with amazing views and friendly people, come spend some time one of our Telluride vacation rentals and be prepared for one incredible experience! Like most ski resort towns in Colorado, Telluride has small-town charm with an upscale edge, making it both laid-back and luxurious. A prosperous mining settlement turned skiing hot spot, Telluride boasts an amazing ski and ride terrain for all levels of snowsport enthusiasts, and an amazing ski and snowboard school for those who have never set foot on snow, all the way to seasoned ski/ride veterans looking for some refinement. At the base of the ski resort is the luxurious Mountain Village.
Enjoy internationally renowned festivals during the summer time including the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Blues and Brews, and Telluride Film Festival. After relaxing in your Telluride vacation rental, take a wander around town and enjoy some of the fine local eateries - The Cornerhouse for burgers and beers, Baked in Telluride (BIT) for snack time, and Allred's at the top of the gondola for a gourmet dinner and spectacular views. Don't forget to stop by Telluride Truffle for some of the best hot chocolate you'll ever taste! Explore fun little shops for authentic mountain wear, outdoor gear, and fun trinkets to take back home with you. Or, enjoy guided jeep tours of Bridal Veil, hikes to Alta Lakes, and guided fishing trips of the San Juan River.
Telluride was first called "the best-kept secret of the Rockies" by prospectors, and it still holds that title in the ski community. When you crest the ridge from Mountain Village and begin your descent to town on the gondola, you'll see why: majestic mountains and a gorgeous valley make this town a place you'll never want to leave.
