Luxury Living in the Heart of Telluride

LOCATION

The Livery at 110 S. Pine Street, (named as it was previously the site of a horse stable,) is ideally located to take advantage of all of Telluride’s recreational and lifestyle amenities, all without the need for a car.

For the first time visitor, it is important to point out that “Telluride” has two distinct areas – “Telluride” and “Mountain Village.” “Telluride” is the National Historic Landmark District (build during the mining boom at the turn of the century,) tucked into a pristine box canyon. Telluride has a year-round population of ~3000, boasts an historic main street lined with shops, restaurants and saloons, is home to the regions famous film and music festivals and is bounded on the south by the San Miguel River. “Mountain Village” is the purpose-build ski resort developed during the 1990s and 2000s. The two are connected year round by a gondola. While everyone is entitled to their preference, ours is clearly “Telluride.” The Livery is located smack in the middle of the historic village.

During ski season, guests will find themselves less than a 5 minute walk (.2 miles) from both the Gondola and Chair #8. The Gondola, after stopping at the St. Sophie Station, continues on to Mountain Village Core for easy access to ski school in the morning and festivals, shopping and dining later in the day. Chair #8 offers the more experienced skier direct access to Chair #9 and legendary black diamond terrain including Bushwacker, Kant-Mak-M and the Plunge.

During the summer, guests can head just 2 minutes down Pine St. (.1 miles) to Bear Creek, Telluride’s favorite hiking trail. Bear Creek also offers access to the Wasatch Trail, various bouldering and climbing opportunities and, for the intrepid, the Wasatch->Bridal Veil Loop. Just a 10 minute walk north (to the end of N. Aspen Street,) hikers will find the Jub Wiebe trailhead. This short, steep hike affords fantastic picnic spots with sweeping views of the town and the valley. The Livery is also just 5 minutes from Town Park, a summer recreation mecca featuring fields, skate board park, tennis and basketball courts, playgrounds and a childrens’ fishing pond.

The 5 minute walk to Town Park presents an ideal base to enjoy Telluride many outdoor music festivals and events – notably Telluride Blue Grass in June and Blues & Brews in the Fall. Whether to take a break from the sun, eat lunch or sit on the deck and enjoy the music from afar, the location transforms an endurance event into a luxury experience.

Summer and winter both, the Livery’s location just footsteps (100 ft.) from the center of W. Colorado Avnenue (Main Street) offers visitors instant access to the countless coffee shops, restaurants and shops that make Telluride a year-round destination. Notable spots include the Sheridan Chophouse and Sheridan Bar, classic mining-era eating and drinking hotspots, the Last Dollar Saloon, a popular local hangout, Between the Covers, a cozy book store and espresso Bar, Paragon Sports and The Bounty Hunter – cowboy hat purveyor to the stars. The Livery also sits directly across the street from the Telluride Library a great spot for kids and source of a great collection of free DVDs.

For things practical, guests will find the Village Market, a well-stocked grocery store, minutes away at 157 Fir. St. (500 ft.) The adjacent, recently rebuilt Baked in Telluride offers freshly baked breads, bagels and pastries as well as a wide range of comfort foods.
