Enjoy a little slice of Telluride history while still enjoying all the creature comforts you could wish for on your next vacation. That’s because The Historic Thompson House can be traced all the way back to the early 20th century. Located in the town’s historic district, the Colorado Cultural Resource Survey tells the tale of the Thompson family settling here from Finland in the early 1900s. It was then kept in the family all the way through the 1970s, at which point, new owners continually updated it for the modern world to marvel. That now includes you.

First, you’ll be just a short walk from all the best shops and restaurants in town, and be in the center of all the action during the town’s active festival season. Not to mention, you're only a short walk to the Gondola for easy ski access. During the winter season, gaze out at the mountain from your private hot tub and you’ll see the small specks of skiers coming down the slopes. We’re sure you’ll soon be joining them. Or just hang out on your patio, take in the scenic atmosphere, and wonder what it was like at the turn of the century. Then head inside, turn on the big flatscreen TV, and snuggle up to the fireplace before going to bed in one of its four bedrooms – three with kings and one with a captain's bunk (plus a sleeper sofa).

The home’s open layout also boasts 3.5 baths, plenty of comfortable seating, and modern kitchen appliances even the pickiest chef would admire. Downstairs you’ll find another great area for gathering, with its own complete kitchen, dining area, and quick access to those magnificent mountain views. Yes, for a small taste of Telluride history with a giant splash of modern amenities, get the best of both worlds at The Historic Thompson House.

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)
