“Welcome.” That’s what the three, 14,000+ foot mountains seem to be saying when you enter Telluride’s majestic box canyon. Telluride is comprised by two sections – the “Town” and Mountain Village, which are connected by a free gondola. The areas are distinctly different, so choose your lodging based on the activities you have planned. Whether you want to explore the historic mining town, ski the world-class slopes, or enjoy one of the music festivals, you’ve come to the right place: InvitedHome has the perfect vacation rental options for the Telluride getaway you’re dreaming of.

Vacationing in Telluride, Colorado is really a tale of two cities… though “a tale of two communities” is probably more accurate. But wherever you choose to stay when you’re here, with InvitedHome, you can be sure it will be the best of times.
When you’re staying near that Telluride Town center, you’re sure to be charmed by the the colorful array of unique Victorian homes. Renowned for its funky “hippie” culture, Telluride’s buildings reflect the creative, quirky nature of its residents. Telluride’s roots were sewn by wild western miners and frontiersmen who were enchanted by its natural resources and unique beauty. And its recent renaissance as a vacation destination was led by eccentric folks with a distaste for the conventions of typical resort towns. You won’t see any exclusive country clubs or tourist traps here. But you can explore many small museums, art galleries and preserved historic buildings. Get a taste of the local lifestyle by sitting down to a delicious dinner at one of the Town’s gourmet restaurants. Just don’t expect to find any chains.
Just a short 15-minute, picturesque – and free! – gondola ride away from the Town of Telluride lies Mountain Village, Colorado. This is where the real outdoor action happens. Founded in 1987, perched on the mountainside, you’ll find one of Ski Magazine’s Top 10 ski areas in North America: Telluride Ski Resort. Each winter, snow shredders flock from all over to experience these one-of-a-kind slopes. When you stay in the Village, you’ll have easy access to some of the world’s top ski terrain. But the fun doesn’t stop when you visit in the warmer months either. Bring your mountain bike up one of the numerous chairlifts that stay open in the summer, or go for a breathtaking hike to experience some of the best views in Colorado.
Both the Town and Mountain Village offer outstanding ski-in/ski-out lodging options. And InvitedHome currently has what we think are 16 (and counting) of the best. The real snow buffs like you don’t want to waste time with a commute. You want to wake up, strap on your boots and skis or boards, and hop right to it.
From sprawling private retreats high upon the mountain in the Village to more cozy condos nestled perfectly in village center, we think you’ll find both convenience and luxury when you choose the home that best suits the skills of your group of skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts. Beginners will want to be close to the easy-to-navigate Meadows run. The sightseers will want access to the scenic Galloping Goose run. And the truly adventurous (and some would say brave) will need to find the lifts that take you to the back country access points. But whatever your skill level may be, InvitedHome’s Telluride ski-in/ski-out rental properties are for those in the know who crave close proximity to the snow.
Telluride’s Town center is just a short drive from the longest free falling waterfall in Colorado: the Bridal Veil Falls. Take a quick day trip to witness the single cabin perched atop the waterfall, which is so secluded that the home’s owner hoists up his supplies using a rope and bucket (seriously!). This magical product of mother earth is also surprisingly close to the venues that host the city’s three major summer events: the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Telluride Blues & Brews and the Telluride Film Festival. So, whether you prefer to bask in nature or be nourished by delicious beverages and tunes, the Town of Telluride is a perfect place to spend your vacation.
We’ll let you in on a little secret: all that skiing is going to make you hungry. But worry not. The mountain has you more than covered. In fact, Telluride has three restaurants that are above 11,000 feet! You can sit down for a gourmet dinner at Bon Vivant, grab some comfort food at Giuseppe’s, or catch the Snow-Coach from the San Sophia mid-station of the Gondola to enjoy a glass of fine wine at Alpino Vino. All boast beautiful, sweeping views of the mountainous terrain below. And, of course, there are plenty of other off-mountain options to satiate your well-earned hunger.
The truth is, whether you choose the Town or Mountain Village for your resort lodging, you really can’t go wrong. Start your search for the right rental option by scrolling down to view all of our Telluride homes below.See less
