All the excellence you would expect from a fine mountain hotel, with the comfort and freedom that comes from staying at a Telluride vacation rental -- and that’s only the beginning of what you can expect from this two-bedroom, two-bath townhome in Telluride.
Nestled between the San Miguel River to the south and the peaks that surround Mt. Emma to the north, Pinecrest is located in the heart of the famous box canyon, and walking distance to Telluride’s iconic main street. From the main lodge, you can see the slopes of the town’s namesake ski resort, which was named the 5th Best in the West in 2018, and a quick walk across the street will get you to the lifts in time for fresh tracks.
Upon entering the home, you’ll notice the open design that connects the kitchen, dining area, and living room -- an expansive communal space perfectly built to bring guests together. The fine attention detail found throughout the home is evident from the moment you step through the entryway. The recessed can lighting above, the rich and dark stained wood doors, and the exquisite spiral staircase are the first to catch your eye, but as you continue, a world of luxury is unveiled.
From the living room, access the master bedroom, which has been ornately designed with a sprawling, cozy rug and a southwestern flavor characteristic of the southern Rockies. The king-size bed is set on a massive dark wood frame and covered by a warm, brightly patterned comforter. From the bed, watch TV on the wall-mounted flat screen, or gaze out the corner window to the town below and mountains beyond. The attached ensuite bathroom is a show of luxury, with green and rose stone tiles, heated floors, a towel warmer and a walk-in steam shower. You’ll have everything you need to rejuvenate after a long day on Telluride’s slopes.
Step out into the living area and have a seat in the mahogany leather couches that line the walls, thoughtfully placed between antiqued coffee and end tables. Above, a massive framed poster detailing Telluride’s famous ski runs watches over the room, preparing anyone who studies it for a great day or skiing or riding. On the far end of the room, a wall of windows opens this Telluride ski home up to bluebird skies and views of the ridge that hangs over town. Leave the Venetian blinds open for a flood of natural light, or keep them closed for added privacy.
As a corner unit, this home has some of the best views in the area. Open up the windows to uncover the mountains and slopes to the north and west, visible from the plush couches and lounge chairs. A wall-mounted flat screen TV sits opposite this lounge space for easy viewing, and is connected to a state-of-the-art surround sound system -- perfect for both family movie nights in and background music during your apres ski treat.
A lavish eastern rug spreads the length of the hardwood floor, segmenting the living room from the dining area. Here, a burly wood dining table, complete with well-crafted heavy distressed wood chairs, can seat six. The serves as the connector between the living area and the kitchen, which sits behind the table.
The kitchen is rimmed by excellent cabinet work, crafted from lighter woods that complement the dark stains of the living room floor and doors. This kitchen was designed for entertaining, with a wine fridge and wine rack easily accessible. Granite counter tops cover every inch of both the kitchen island and the divider behind the table, and the reflection of the modern lighting above adds a subtle elegant touch to the natural wood theme of the room.
Anything you may need to cook for the entire group can be found here. This includes an electric stove, microwave, toaster, espresso maker, full knife set, and oven. All professional-grade, all stainless steel appliances give the kitchen a clean and sleek feel.
Follow the grand spiral staircase to guest bedroom 2, where another king-size bed is set on a deep cherry-stained wood bed frame. As the top unit, the ceiling slopes toward the foot of the bed, creating a cozy atmosphere akin to the lofts of traditional A-frame homes found in the nearby mountains. A skylight open the space up, letting sunlight in to stir you before a day on the mountain. This also creates a space for a desk and monitor, so you can get work done in the peace and privacy of this quiet upstairs area. The attached bathroom has a shower/tub combo, as well as heated floors and towel racks, and is built in a classic American retro design of white and black tile.
As sumptuous as the inside of the home is, and as tempting as it would be to stay inside with family and friends, the whole town of Telluride is at your feet. Step outside and onto the Coonskin Lift, or walk a few blocks to catch the free gondola to Heritage Plaza in the heart of Mountain Village. Take a stroll down Main Street and pose for the now-famous shot of the Western-style businesses and saloons with the mountains towering in the background, or stop in at any of the boutique shops and restaurants. Or, relax in the community hot tub, from which you can watch the stars emerge over the mountains.
