Some families are born competitors. And if yours is one of those, then you’ll find Shaqteau is the place for you in Telluride. Not only is it located in Mountain Village just a short jaunt from all that the Telluride ski area has to offer, it’s also a block from the Telluride Golf Course (the only one in town by the way). Golf not your game? That’s okay too. Because with community basketball and tennis courts right next door, you can squeeze in a quick game of 3 on 3 before dinner. And of course, the losing team will be on dish duty.

Following the game, you’ll surely have some hungry mouths to feed. So fire up those modern appliances fit for a session of Iron Chef, and cook up some delicious vittles for your bunch. And after the meal, cruise out to the spacious patio, or slide into the hot tub for a good soak. You know, cause after all of that sporting, the muscles will be calling for some help - and it is only steps away.

When it’s finally time to retire, take in the views of Wilson Peak from your balcony that’s just off the master suite. You’ll certainly feel like you’ve won. At life. But take solace in the fact your guests will be winners too, as they won’t need to compete for instant bathroom access. Guest rooms have en-suite bathrooms (yes, all of them), and there are posh private quarters above the garage, complete with kitchenette – perfect for the in-laws. Or the family Pilot.

And if you’re just interested in some good old-fashioned relaxation, there’s always lounging to be had in your big back or front yards. The gang will enjoy re-hashing the day’s accomplishments out on the patio, or catching a game on the big screen in the downstairs media room.

So no matter what your family’s sporting passion, it’s all at your disposal at Shaqteau Telluride.

Great all around for our group

Our group of 10 adults fit beautifully in this house. We used the free dial-a-ride about 2x per day to get to the ski lifts and/or gondola into downtown. Plenty of room to entertain, cook, etc. Heated garage to keep your gear warm. Hot tub was nice, seats 4-6. Kitchen was fully stocked with all cookware, plates, cups, etc. We loved it!

Perfect Mountain Home

Our family had an amazing time in Telluride and loved having the shaqteau as our "home base!" The house is spacious and the furnishings and appliances are up to date. Our kiddos loved having the sport court next door and it was great that we could watch them from the patio or living room. We all loved the variety of wildlife that visited in the mornings and evenings- mule deer, chipmunks and even a coyote! The kitchen is pretty well appointed with utensils and cooking gear. Loved having an additional washer and dryer in the master bedroom. The den area was a favorite place to curl up with a book and the kiddos had a blast in the "kid cave" downstairs. We hope to come back next summer to the Shaqteau!

Telluride sm
Telluride Film Festival
The Telluride Film Festival (TFF) made its debut amidst the majestic San Juan Mountains in 1973. Telluride had always been a scene for cinematic legends, harking back to the days when such stars as Houdini, the Marx Brothers, and Sarah Bernhardt ...journeyed to Telluride to entertain miners in the Sheridan Opera House. Today, that very same Sheridan Opera House is still one of three formal venues of the TFF (the others include Chuck Jones’ Cinema and the Werner Herzog Theater). And the stars that flock to this Telluride festival have only gotten progressively bigger. (see less)

Small Town, Big Thrills Await Skiers in Telluride
November 11, 2016 A sapphire sky on a sunny day. The aroma of rich, creamy mushroom soup. Larmandier-Bernier Champagne chilling. Bon Vivant restaurant puts a luxurious twist on the skier's outdoor picnic lunch — just one of the refined touches at Telluride Ski ...Resort, where the season kicks off Nov. 24. (see less)
Comment There are many places to take a ski vacation, so it's important to consider what sets each location apart from the next. Telluride has the small-town feel while still providing plenty of ...choices. (see less)
Winter biking telluride
36 Hours in Telluride, Colorado
October 28, 2016 There are steeper ski resorts than Telluride. There are ski resorts that get more snow. But few places are more friendly and prettier than this town at the end of a box canyon in the tall San Juan Mountains, a place so cinematic that Quentin ...Tarantino was here last winter filming his forthcoming western, “The Hateful Eight.” Beauty and great skiing keep pulling the money here, and that keeps refreshing the scene. But it’s the people who make this place interesting — a quirky stew of Patagonia-clad men who look as if they came straight from base camp; flushed women direct from their 10-mile runs; still others reciting poetry in bordello-wear at a Colorado Avenue bar; and gray-ponytailed hippies who play “Sugar Magnolia” so often you’d think Jerry Garcia never went to that great jam fest in the sky. Telluride isn’t just a ski area; it’s a way of life. (see less)
Comment This is an amazing short re-cap of what Telluride has to offer.  But let me say after a few hours you'll realize you want a few more days or weeks in the is incredibly gorgeous mountain oasis. From outdoor sports to amazing dining and ...nightlife Telluride really is a hidden gem.  (see less)
Taco del nar
Taco del Gnar comes to Telluride
October 28, 2016 The popular Ridgway establishment Taco del Gnar will officially be opening its doors in Telluride on Tuesday, Sept. 13. Curtis Blanton, the executive chef and owner, and his wife Chas Blanton said that it took them about two years to find an ...affordable spot that would work in Telluride. With the help of a friend who purchased the building, they were able to rent out the first level and make their second location a reality. Prior to the restaurant, the building was home to Deer Consignment. The new spot is located at 123 S. Oak St. directly behind Elks Park. “The park is part of our dining room,” Chas Blanton said. The first location in Ridgway was opened almost three years ago and has gained a reputation amongst Telluride locals. (see less)
Comment it's a great taco that will make you come back to Telluride again and again. The different tacos are awesome and incredibly well executed. The price is very reasonable by Telluride standards. I highly recommend the taco dinner for just $10. ...Family friendly and tons of local atmosphere. The staff is great and friendly to add to the restaurant's amazing style. (see less)
