Telluride Lodging / Getting Here

Telluride Lodging

There are a variety of lodging options in Telluride and Mountain Village. More traditional choices include condominiums and private homes. In the historic town, most lodging properties are on the south side of town. You just need to choose whether you’d like to be closer to town and the gondola, or near Chair 7 on the west side of town. If you like hotel-style amenities, go with the Hotel Telluride or the New Sheridan Hotel in the heart of Main Street. The Mountain Village offers large ski in/ski out homes all the way to the luxurious Hotel Madeline located in the Core. Of course there are condos, golf in/out properties, and many others in a variety of locations.

Teddy can also get you information on other unique lodging options ranging from the Tempter house sitting at 12,000 feet at the top of the Telluride Ski Area accessed by snowmobile to a town of Telluride quaint bed and breakfast, The Aspen Street Inn. A quiet getaway can be arranged at the Alta Lakes observatory, also accessed by cross country skiing from the ski area or by snowmobile.

Your best bet is to send Teddy an e-mail or call so he can explain the many options and who is currently providing the highest level of service.
