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!
The Joy of Telluride
Winter days can be dark ones, lasting just a few short hours before night falls once again, so we appreciate a home that can be light and bright, and our Chalet Columbia 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath stunner is the perfect example! Offering vaulted ceilings and walls of windows that look out towards the mountains, this two-story Telluride vacation rental is a beautiful space whose story we can not wait to tell you. Vacationers need a sanctuary—a place to relax, recharge, and renew in between vacation adventures—and this sweet home built of wood and glass with space for 10 to sleep comfortably promises to be the one that makes your Colorado getaway a dream come true!
Welcome to Our Amazing Telluride Vacation Rental!
As the door swings open, revealing the treasures inside, you may be wondering what the next week of your life may bring you, but you already know that the threshold you are about to step over will lead you to a place of peace and comfort. Drop your suitcases by the door—there will be plenty of time to choose sleeping quarters and unpack later. All travelers seek the warmth found in the kitchen, where a good meal and a hot cup of coffee is the ultimate welcoming gift, and Chalet Columbia’s kitchen does not disappoint. Crisp white cabinets surround appliances of stainless steel, while white quartz counters help soak in the light from the windows over the sink. Fully equipped with everything you need (minus food and beverages), guests have the option of eating in on a lazy Tuesday evening or just using the space to enjoy leftovers from your new favorite local restaurant.
Just beyond the breakfast bar featuring a gas stovetop and overflow seating for four, you will find the dining area in this open concept home. A thick natural edge slab of wood attached to four metal legs gives this multipurpose space a modern yet rustic feel that will be much enjoyed as you devour meals, play games, or simply sit under the unique woven rattan pendant lamp that brightens the room when night falls. When the games end and there is nothing left of your meal but crumbs, the comforts found in the living area, located just steps away, will make you feel right at home. A comfortably sleek sectional sofa sits facing the state-of-the-art television hanging over the stone fireplace that reaches up to the tongue and groove planked ceiling. Wood beams give the room a modern ski lodge feel, and the wall of windows, plus the French doors that lead out to the balcony, keep the space airy and light; a roaring fire in the fireplace will make every night a cozy one!
Open the white French doors to let in the fresh air and step out onto the balcony that overlooks the small community you are staying in and the majestic San Juan Mountains just beyond. Somehow managing to look rugged, stark, inviting, and welcoming at the same time, these mountains will be your playground during your Telluride adventures, no matter what the season! Cold and snow-covered in the middle of winter, vibrant and golden during the autumn months, and offering a pasture of colorful and cheerful wildflowers during the warmer months, you will miss this view when you have to return to real life, so don’t feel bad about spending as much time as you possibly can out here during your stay! But for the moment, there is still more to tour in our cheerful chalet, so step back inside and prepare to be wowed!
A cozy little corner desk on the main living area, surrounded by bookshelves filled with books, offers a place to check in with the office, as high-speed internet is a part of the package! On the first floor, you’ll find the first of the four bedrooms, a guest room with double windows, (bamboo blinds block out the light if you want to sleep in late) a king-sized bed, and another television sitting on the bureau directly across from the bed. A second bedroom on this level offers a queen bed and flat-screen television and the third guest room offers a double set of bunk beds that will automatically be claimed by the littles in your traveling group. Even after a long day playing in the mountain air, you can probably count on hearing whispered secrets and muffled giggles late into night until the children finally drift away into that deep and peaceful sleep that you normally would envy them for!
The master suite, however, will be the reason you don’t have to feel envy for maybe the first time in your adult lives! Vaulted ceilings, more windows that let in the light and the views when you want, and a soft bed that you will look forward to falling into every night make this room extra special. The attached en suite is spacious, spa-like, and filled with a deep jetted tub, a walk-in shower, and a double vanity with plenty of space to set out your bathroom necessities.
