21 Reasons to Choose Our Vacation Rental for your Telluride Lodging
What makes a perfect vacation rental? Is it worn out mattresses that a person just had around? No. Is it old furnishings the person had left over and decided to use? No. Is it a place that smells old or has popcorn ceilings? No. No. No. We have stayed in many vacation rentals we have not liked. Plus, we are picky and have strong opinions about what makes a perfect vacation rental. When designing the interior of our condo, we took our past experiences and preferences to design what we feel is the perfect vacation rental. Here is some of what you will find.
Location, Location, Location – You have heard this before about real estate but with a place you are staying location is a must. We are about 50 steps away from the gondola and central to everything. You simply cannot have a better location.
Beds and Bedding – You want to be comfortable. That is why we have brand new mattresses, plush Company Store and Ralph Lauren bedding on our beds.
High Speed Internet – Surf at high speeds with our Time Warner Broadband Internet available via our WiFi network.
Two Full-Size Couches and a Comfy Chair – This way, everybody in the den can be comfortable. It is in a U shape configuration so everyone can relax, socialize or watch our giant TV.
King Size Beds – Two to be exact (one in each of our two bedrooms) or if you prefer one king in the master and the guest can be converted to two twins each with their own nightstand. You see, Jennifer and I although we love each other like our space and a queen matresss is just not good enough. So, we like a king. We also each like to have a nightstand and it is a pet peeve of ours when one of us does not have one. So, no matter which configuration you choose, each person will have a nightstand.
50″ LG Flat Panel TV’s – No one-eye televisions here. Don’t you just hate when you stay at a vacation rental and it has old style televisions or ones that are so small you cannot see them from the bed? Or, televisions positioned in such a way that you have to bend your neck like a contortionist to watch your favorite program? We do. That is why we put large new 50″ TV’s in every room (not one, not two, but three – the den, the guest room and the master room). And best of all, they are positioned with the viewer in mind so you don’t have to bend your neck or do handstands in order to watch the 100+ channels that Time Warner Cable provides.
Air Conditioning – Everyone will tell you “It’s Telluride – You don’t need air conditioning.” They’re lying. Don’t worry. Our new air conditioning system will keep you cool.
Full Size Washer and Dryer – Brand new LG full size front load washer and dryer to wash all your clothes. We had to really work to fit it in but it is worth it. We are pleased and we know you will be to not having to spend all your vacation time waiting for your clothes to dry and doing multiple loads. Believe us – we have been there and you don’t want to be.
Steam Shower – Our master bedroom has a steam shower. Why? Jennifer does not use a steam shower like I do but I like it to relax and I also like to sit in it to defend against the harsh mountain dryness that Telluride seems to bring.
Humidifers – If your nose dries out the minute you hit town like ours does, these are for you.
Kitchen – A fully functional kitchen with GE Profile stainless appliances (full size refridgerator, oven, gas cooktop, dishwasher microwave, under the counter icemaker that makes that ‘special’ ice for your drinks), granite countertops, cupboards full of dishes and glassware. This way, instead of paying through the nose for dinners out at restaurants you can pay through the nose for groceries and cook it yourself.
Spacious Eating Area – Dining room table that seats 6 in case you meet two friends on the gondola.
Whirlpool and Hot Tubs – The Ore Station has a hot tub outside for 8 for your enjoyment. But, if you prefer to Apres Ski by yourself, then our condo/guest bathroom also has a whirlpool tub to splash around in.
Mud Room – An entry mud area and cubbies so you can take off and put on your jackets and ski boots with ease.
Elevator – The Ore Station has an elevator in case you do not want to walk on the brand new steps.
Top Floor Unit – This way, you will not have to listen to sumo wrestling going on above when you are trying to sleep.
Covered Parking Space – You’re staying in a nice place. Shouldn’t your car have a nice place too? You will have a dedicated parking space in the building garage.
Great Views – Step off onto the balcony and have a look around.
Additional Items – Hardwood floors, Telluride artwork, ceiling fans in bedrooms, vintage posters, high quality rugs and other furnishings, luggage racks for your luggage, Ipod dock clock radio and speaker unit, sprayer sink in kitchen.
Grocery Delivery Available – Want your condo stocked with groceries for your arrival. For an additional charge we can arrange grocery delivery.
Extra Housecleaning – Would you like to have extra house-cleaning during your stay? Just ask. We can arrange it for a nominal charge.
Your Very Own Bar Downstairs – Not really, but it might as well be. It is right next door downstairs with our friends at the Hotel Columbia. You cannot ask for a shorter walk home after your cocktails.
