The beauty of a vacation in Telluride is only enhanced by a stay in one of our Lodging in Telluride vacation escapes, and as proof, we would like to offer a closer look at Sunset Ski Retreat, located at the Blue Mesa Lodge in Mountain Village. Every vacation rental in Telluride, CO we offer holds a tiny piece of our hearts, and although we claim no favorites, this special 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath sanctuary offering picture-perfect views and a warmth that welcomes everyone who stays under its roof is a top contender! Pour yourself a glass of wine, choose a comfortable space to sit, and take a few minutes to get to know Sunset Ski Retreat and we can promise it will soon be one of your top contenders as well.
A Touch of Luxury
Let’s face it, your time in Telluride will mostly be spent outdoors, whether skiing in the winter, hiking in the summer, or exploring the beauty of our small village anytime of the year, so having a comfortable and luxurious space to come home to every night will be welcomed! Sunset Ski Retreat knows its place in life is to spoil guests with luxury and bring them the comforts that won’t be found on the ski slopes, and it does it well. Newly updated with an attention to detail that pleases even the pickiest of travelers, whimsical touches found throughout show off its fun side.
A living room decorated with sleek, modern leather sofas that double as napping spots sit facing each other and are located directly across from the thoroughly modern fireplace and state of the art television that hangs on the wall above. This room is where you will get your first views of the Norman Rockwell-esque scene that lies directly outside, but it’s the quirky portrait hanging on the wall above one of the sofas that will catch your eye first: a portrait of four ski-capped canines sitting happily in one of the cars of the gondola that passes just outside your mountain retreat.
The open concept floor plan offers space for everyone be a part of every happening and includes the second most popular space inside the unit, the dining area located just behind the living room. Offering a sturdy wood table, seating for all six of the guests Sunset Ski Retreat accommodates, and a place to play board games, build puzzles, sip your morning go-juice, or feast on homemade meals or leftovers, this room isn’t just the center of the public spaces, it may be the center of all the fun you have during your stay—especially when you make use of the bar cart that lingers against the wall, just waiting for happy occupants to stock it with their favorite beverages.
A few steps beyond the dining room lies the fully equipped kitchen designed to be used in whatever ways you desire. Create a family feast with high-end stainless steel appliances or simply reheat leftovers in the microwave above the stove; the coffee maker may be the only appliance that gets used daily, and that is ok with us! Our mountain sanctuary is located in the heart of the Mountain Village core and a variety of restaurants can be found within walking distance, eliminating any need for cooking, but it is nice knowing you have the option, don’t you think?
A compact laundry area offering stackable washer and dryer ends our tour of the public spaces, but before we continue to the bedrooms, let’s take a minute and step outside onto that patio we mentioned earlier! The village awaits you with postcard perfect views that must be seen to be believed, and as you sit out here, watching the gondolas pass above you, the people pass below you, and noting the rugged beauty of the mountains just beyond, you may find yourself reluctant to ever leave this spot. Peaceful and exciting, everything wonderful about Telluride is captured in this one view which we promise you’ll never forget!
The Tour Continues
Ok, we know these views have lodged deeply in a corner of your heart, but there is more to see, so let’s go back inside and continue the tour of this special place. The three bedrooms offer a place to retreat to and shut away the noises of the world; comfortable, luxurious, and serene, your nights here will be filled with the deepest sleep and the happiest dreams! Two sets of full bunk beds in the guest rooms offer unique sleeping spots and a king bed in the master suite is everything you dreamed a bed could be!
