Beautiful getaway in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our stay in Telluride! Not only was the condo itself decorated nicely, equipped well, comfortable, and great patio view, but also only a short walk to the Gondola into Telluride. Could not have been more pleased with our stay. We had a large group and we fit comfortably. The rental company was also great with checking in and making sure we had everything needed for a great stay. The kitchen was well equipped with cooking utensils. The condo was great for getting to and from Telluride with being a 2 min walk to the free Gondola through Mountain Village. It was also nice being in Mountain Village where at night it was quiet and cozy. Look forward to another visit in the new year! Thank you for the hospitality!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

The property and the owners were all very nice. We enjoyed it very much. I did have a very big problem with the after-hours answering service. When I arrived back to the cabin without the ability to pull up the instructions on my phone, I had to call to find out the code to get in. The only door the code works on was a side door which I had never been in before. Despite my being on the phone for about ten minutes and clearly trudging up and down the stairs looking for the condo doorway and grumbling to the representative on the phone about going up and down the stairs and into hallways and not finding the entrance to our condo, he finally said, oh well, I have written directions. I was extremely bothered by him not providing that information before hand. He clearly had it and was just completely disassociated from the phone call and I am sorry, but not at all very bright and very very slow. Quite exasperating. Other than that it was a wonderful stay and I think we want to book it again for next year. Thank you. Please reconsider your answering service!!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

8 adults stayed here in July, 2016. The location is great. Very short walk to the gondola's and close to the mountain village restaurants, Starbucks, etc. Parking was really tricky to figure out, but they do have a spot in a garage about a block from the unit. Unit was fine. Kitchen was well stocked. Everything was comfortable, including pull-out couch bed. Internet was not working, but admittedly we did not do anything to try and get it to work. Overall, a good property.

Emerald Elk

  • 3 of 5

The overall impression of Emerald Elk was good. There are a couple of areas that can be improved. The dishwasher did not clean the dishes even with pre-rinsing and light wiping. The dishes still have food debris on them after the wash cycle. The other concern is the lack of an open ski locker. The place is advertised as ski in/out however there is no accommodation made for your skis. The unit has a ski locker but it is locked and for the owners use. I was told that I could leave my skis in the common area and it is save because you need a cypher code to access the building. If that is the case, why are the ski lockers locked? Also, the "ski in" required a small uphill walk.

The property manager was responsive to our inability to find the remote for the gas fireplace. A maintenance person was there within 15 to 20 minutes of my call and located the remote.

I would recommend this place to a friend with caveats of the dishwasher and ski locker.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We're so sorry that the dishwasher wasn't working well during your stay. We have our maintenance staff looking into it to ensure it's working properly. Additionally, the owner has decided to offer the ski locker to guests. So sorry this was not available during your stay, but we appreciate that feedback to create an even better experience for future guests.

Charming rustic getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Emeralk Elk over Christmas vacation in 2015. We were thoroughly impressed with the condo and it's location. The condo was beautiful-clean, updated, and had everything you would need for even a long getaway. Village Creek is also a very short walk from Mountain Village center square, all resturants, the gondola, and the ski lift. Even my father-in-law, who is wheel chair bound, was able to get around easily.

The only small problem we encountered was parking. The reserved parking space for our condo was about two or three blocks from our location, which wasn't a big deal as we never needed to drive anywhere with everything so close. However, there is a small space for parking to unload which was constantly occupied by guests who chose not use their reserved space and instead parked in front of the building constantly. This made u loading for my family challenging.

Overall, it was a great stay in a wonderful location. We will definitely be back soon and will always reserve our stay at Village Creek.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback! It sounds like you had an excellent trip to Telluride. We're sorry there were some issues with unloading - we will make sure it's clear to all guests of the complex (ours and others) that this is an unloading zone only!
