Located in the town of Telluride close to your soon-to-be favorite shops, restaurants, and for our winter visitors, the gondola station that will take you up the mountain, your time in this Telluride vacation rental will bring you happy memories and comfortable adventures.
Property Walkthrough: Aspen House
Surrounded by mature trees, the raised garden may not be visible during the winter months, but its stone wall will still add charm to your stay. Come in through the side door, just as your friends and family do at your own house, and begin your explorations with a tour of the public spaces. This open concept floor plan keeps no secrets, immediately revealing a farmhouse feel and welcoming ambience, starting with the warm and inviting living room space. Walls are painted the dark green of the forest, providing a beautiful backdrop to unique artwork and a wall of white cabinets and shelves that house a state-of-the-art television and a large selection of books to be enjoyed during your stay. A camel-hued sectional lies across from the television, offering up a soft place to read, watch TV, or nap on a snowy Saturday afternoon, while in the corner, a desk placed in front of a large bay window provides views of the neighborhood that will be much enjoyed, even if you are sitting at the desk because you have to work!
Following the path created by warm wood floors, the kitchen is a cheerful space filled with farmhouse appeal. A center island surrounded by a set of four chairs offers the ideal spot to enjoy morning coffee or late-night snacks, and the professional quality appliances are ones that any chef would be happy to have in her own restaurant kitchen. A secondary seating area, this one with barn red walls and a comfortable reading chair placed where the light is best, serves as a passage from the living room to the kitchen and the dining room anchored by a long wood table that seats 8. A modern gas fireplace adds a warmth to the room that is much appreciated during the cold days and nights of winter, and just beyond lies the first of the 5 bedrooms.
Aspen House blends modern convenience with cozy comforts, and this first bedroom offers the perfect example. The queen bed topped with warm linens is the secondary focal point of this space, with the main draw being the views of the trees just outside. A tiled en suite bath with jetted tub will soothe muscles that may not be used to skiing and will help ease the transition from wakefulness to peaceful sleep. A private deck on this level features a hot tub under the open sky, adding warmth and romance to your vacation experiences!
Three of the remaining bedrooms can be found upstairs, offering two queens, a full bed, and colorful walls that add cheer to the décor. Cobalt walls, large white framed windows, and a window seat with colorful pillows in one room, a handmade quilt serving as a headboard in another space, and unique angles, a four-poster bed, and a brass chandelier in the final of the three bedrooms welcome all who sleep within. The art of Aspen House is definitely unique, as shown in the hall that is decorated with a variety of small wood chairs nailed to the walls, and the bathrooms offer up their own whimsical décor, including walls papered with retro magazine ads, a shower with an intricate mosaic tile design, and another deep jetted tub in the en suite bath of the “green room” finishes up the tour of this level.
Heading downstairs, you will find a basement bunk room sure to be the favorite spot in the house! Offering two brightly painted sets of bunk beds, a tomato-hued microfiber sofa faced towards another television, and a fun foosball table that will instantly transport any 80s kid back to their youth, this room is destined to be the chief hangout space for travelers of all ages. The final bath features a walk-in shower, and outside this fun space, guests will find another bubbling hot tub. The wrap-around deck of Aspen House features more sitting and dining spaces, a barbecue grill, and stunning views of the neighborhood and the mountains just beyond.

The San Juan mountains of Colorado play a huge part in drawing visitors from all over the world.

Property Walkthrough: See Forever 106
The rustic appeal of a log cabin can sometimes veer into the far too rustic side, but that is not the case with See Forever 106. Stealing décor ideas from the mountains that surround, you and 5 of your favorite people are destined to enjoy a vacation that you will wish never had to end. The covered porch leading to the mahogany-stained door has the feel of an enchanted forest path and when the door opens for the first time, the magic continues. The open-concept floor plan spreads out before you, giving your eyes multiple places to land before being drawn to the wall of white framed windows at the back of the space. Vaulted ceilings lined with lodge pole beams are punctuated by the support of metal corbels designed to repeat the beauty of the Colorado sun. The naturally stained wide plank floors under your feet reflect the charms of the ceiling overhead.
To your right, the spacious and modern kitchen is defined by the pure beauty of the color white; white stone counters, farmhouse cabinets painted a crisp white, and a white marble backsplash that lends the space a touch of modern sleekness. High-end appliances in stainless steel bring the joy back to your cooking adventures and a long farmhouse table surrounded by 8 comfy chairs completes the feel of a family space. To the left of the room, guests will find a charming living space, anchored by soft gray sofas and chairs and brought into the new millennium with the addition of a super-sized state-of-the-art television mounted to the wall opposite.
The oversized French doors in the back of the house lead out to a private deck, the perfect place to soak in the magic of Colorado’s landscape. The deck floats high in the trees, offering space to sit, sip, and savor the majestic beauty of Telluride. A barbecue grill can be found on one of the decks so you can grill while you enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature.

The tranquil beauty of the 3 bedrooms in See Forever 106 will ensure that every night’s sleep will be the best one and every dream remembered will be happy.

If you love to ski, there’s a good chance that you also love happy hour. After a day of intense thigh burn, frozen fingers and achy feet (geez I’m not making skiing sound too fun am I?), it’s easy to work up a thirst/appetite. Whether your perfect apres comes in the form of beer & wings or sushi & cocktails, there is certainly something for every set of tastebuds here in our beautiful box canyon. Here at Lodging In Telluride, we have some firm favorite’s in our little mountain town. But we understand that different people want different things at the end of an epic ski day. So, with that in mind, we have put together the following list of the best happy hours in town. Please feel free to comment on your personal favorite’s, or anything you think we have missed!
Certainly an easy choice as far as effort is concerned, this long time Telluride establishment is just steps from the gondola and the base of Chair 8. Located in the base of Telluride’s Hotel Columbia, the ‘Cosmo’ happy hour is a popular one, with half price sushi rolls and $5 cosmopolitan cocktails. Hang out in the hotel lobby by the fire and enjoy one of Tellude’s best dining experiences, for a fraction of the price.
2. La Marmotte
My personal favorite here in Telluride, La Marmotte offers an old world European feel, with friendly, attentive staff. What I love about La Marmotte is that it perfectly blends fine dining folk with seasoned locals. On any given night, you will find some of Telluride’s most colorful characters sitting at the bar. La Marmotte offers fabulous wine and dinner happy hours during non peak periods. Get there early and prop up the bar!!
there bar is located on West Pacific Avenue, right across the road from the Viking Lodge, there Bar is arguably Telluride’s best cocktail bar. Again, a cocktail potency warning is required here. Two’s the limit for me, but hey, it’s all relative. The fried Brussell sprouts are also a winner!
Located at the base of the gondola (you can literally ski to the door), Oak is a firm local favorite. Formerly Fat Alley on Oak Street, Robbie and the gang moved to their new location about 2 years ago. Serving beer, cocktails and wine, as well as a tasty southern menu including fried okra, pulled pork sandwiches and delicious gumbo, Oak is the perfect spot to pull of your ski boots and replenish your energy levels after shredding the pow.
With its century old, hand-carved Austrian made bar, dim lights and saloon vibe, the Sheridan Bar makes you feel like you just stepped onto the set of an old western movie. Serving $5 Jack Daniels all day, as well as wine, beer and other spirits, anyone who visits Telluride should make a stop here.

Affectionately known as “The Buck,” Telluride’s Last Dollar Saloon is a must for anyone looking for a good time in Telluride. I think it’s safe to say that many who live here in Telluride have lost their mind at least once in this rough and ready bar. Not really somewhere you would go to make polite conversation, or go on a date, but if you are looking to let your hair down, head on up to Main Street and perch yourself at the bar.
The stylish, cozy Tomboy Tavern is cranking out drinks, burgers and more 7 days a week. With a prime location at the base of Chair 4 right in the heart of Mountain Village, this spot is hard not to fall into at some point during your Telluride visit.
A great little spot located in the lovely Lumiere Hotel (right behind the Inn At Lost Creek at the base of Chair 4).

When it comes to vacation rental management companies in Telluride, there are a lot of choices. It can be overwhelming. When you don’t live in Telluride (and often when you live thousands of miles away), you want to have peace of mind, knowing that your Telluride investment is being well taken care of, and is performing with strong rental numbers.
At Lodging In Telluride, we don’t pretend we can be all things to all people. We are a small company that offers personalized property management and lodging for our owners and guests.

We work hard to secure short term rentals at decent rates with guests who are most often families & couples. Here is some information that might help you in deciding if we are the right match for you.
Our intention in this venture is simple – to offer unique, well maintained properties to our guests, and keep those guests coming back year after year. We do not want to be the biggest rental company in town. We plan to stay small to ensure that the same level of personalized service is delivered to our owners and guests. We envision an optimal balance of 20 properties in our rental pool, so that we can focus on maintaining and marketing each condo to its full potential. We want to help you maximize the potential of your Telluride investment property.

Visiting Telluride during the summer months is truly magical. Many of our friends to the south – Arizona, Texas and New Mexico flock north to the Rockies for mild summer days, cool nights and fresh mountain air. Because our temperatures are generally very mild in the summer (our days average in the mid 70’s), there is not a huge need for swimming pools and air conditioning in Telluride. These amenities might be essential in some parts of the country, but finding these things can be a challenge in a Telluride. However, it sure is nice when you find a vacation rental condo that has a swimming pool, and there are some fantastic options if you know where to look. Anyone who has kids knows how much of a bonus a pool can be on a vacation!
Two of the condo complexes where we currently manage condos have swimming pools – the Viking Lodge & Lulu City. We offer one, two, three and four bedroom accommodations to our guests. The pools are heated in the summer and winter months, ensuring an optimal level of comfort and refreshment.
Below: The swimming pool & hot tub at the Viking Lodge in Telluride. Telluride’s only salt water hot tub!
Below: This gorgeous Lulu City condo also offers guests a swimming pool and hot tub. This vacation rental condo will also have air-conditioning in the summer of 2014!
