Telluride Festival Accomodations
Are you looking for extended accommodations to enjoy one of the Telluride festivals? Then look no further. Enjoy the Western Slope at a remote homestead in SW Colorado. Rejuvenate in tranquility just 45 minutes from Telluride and all its festivals. The spacious 4-bedroom log home was hand built and is filled with an eclectic collection of treasures the late owner gathered from all over the world. Your spirit will be rejuvenated with the fragrance of piñons and the sounds of birds and soothing wind. The countryside has abundant wildlife - a bird watcher’s heaven. The “Dark Sky Designation” here reveals the starry firmament.
The family wanted to share their unique haven and have created a stunning retreat with Rancho de Cielo. Scores of windows look out on Lone Cone Peak and the remote Western landscape in every direction. You will find a large living room with distinct seating areas: one around a unique coffee table carved from the roots of a tree. Guests can lounge on sofas and enjoy a movie on the 55" HDTV with Roku. Across the room is a desk (wifi on premises), armchair and daybed - a lovely spot for kids to play, or read a book!
The late owner’s daughter and son are occasionally in residence at nearby homes, but the privacy in the main house is complete. The house sleeps 8 in lovely bedrooms with new mattresses. There are bathrooms on both floors, including a vintage claw-footed tub.
Enjoy morning coffee on the patio overlooking endless vistas. There are famous festivals in Telluride all summer long - Bluegrass, Blues and Brews, Telluride Film Festival, mushroom and yoga festivals, and The Ride, among them. Just Google “Welcome to Telluride Festivals.You can also visit the many wonders of the region, including Mesa Verde, Utah National Parks, and Orvis hot springs.
A large, renovated, well-appointed kitchen is ready for feasts with friends and family.
New stainless steel appliances (fridge, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, water dispenser, and Ninja air-fryer) have been recently installed. In a huge bay window, a large table seats 8 and guests can spend hours dining and gazing at Lone Cone Peak. The entrance hall has a rack for shoes (slippers provided), coat closet and shelves containing all the china, serving dishes and pots you could possibly need. Also downstairs is an accessible full bathroom with bathtub, shower and vanity. Adjacent is a laundry room with new washer and dryer.
Dogs, if trained and socialized, are welcome by prearrangement. And dedicated Service Animals, of course. One RV is allowed, also by prearrangement. No off-roading on the property and no hunters. You are in the middle of ranch land, far away from any major city - no central AC, or other city amenities, but there is always a breeze through open windows. Please call for details. Make your plans soon; we fill up quickly. We are an LGBTQ friendly facility. This house is great for gatherings of family or friends but it is NOT a "Party House.”
WHERE YOU WILL BE:
San Miguel County, Colorado, United States
Although Rancho De Cielo is on Colorado's stunning Western Slope, it's also conveniently located just 45 minutes from Telluride and 5 minutes from charming Norwood, a historic town where you will find a grocery store, bakery, liquor store, gas station, pubs, eateries, playground, post office, a darling library and small museum, hardware store, car parts store, 2 beauty salons, bike shop, even a gym.
Rancho de Cielo is located on 70 acres so it’s recommended you bring your own transportation for getting around and sightseeing. (No Ubers!) There is transportation to and from Telluride, but it leaves early and returns late.
