Lodging In Telluride was founded in 2006 by Tom Almour and Mindy Miller. Tom and Mindy were also managers of the Viking Lodge HOA. They had such great success with short term rentals at their own Viking condo that other owners started asking them to manage their condos too. By 2016, Tom and Mindy had built up a portfolio of 20 condos at the Viking Lodge, Cimarron Lodge, Telluride Lodge and the Mountainside Inn. At the end of 2016, the couple decided it was time to head back to family in Arizona, and sold the company to Georgie Bishop. Georgie had been working for Tom and Mindy for 3 years and was thrilled to have the opportunity to own her own business.
Our team at Lodging In Telluride looks forward to hosting you!
Georgie Bishop – Owner
Hello, I am Georgie, owner of Lodging In Telluride. Originally from Australia, I made the move to Telluride in 2007. Just like most people that live here, I only intended to stay for a ski season but ended up staying. Ten years later, I’m still here and just as in love with Telluride as the day I came! I now call the box canyon home with my husband & 2 young kids. What I love most about Telluride is its the wonderful community, and the insane natural beauty that surrounds us.
Julie Spires – Guest Services Manager
Hi adventure travelers! I’m Julie and so happy to be a part of Lodging in Telluride! The mountains here either speak to you and you reveal in the magnificent beauty or they beckon to your soul and secretly taunt you until you find a way to make this place home. I was taunted relentlessly after the my first visit in 2014, but now it is home! Yippee! I am here to make your stay as easy and pleasant as possible. In my off time I like to ski, hike, coach youth athletics, teach, and raise my two beautiful daughters. Come say hello, I give FREE HUGS!

We are excited to have Fletcher on board, taking care of our homes in a way that we know no one else can!

Over the course of her career, Jen has been many things including an Off-Broadway publicist, a museum marketing manager, and a digital media coordinator for a large arena, and now is the marketing project manager for Lodging In Telluride.
