Enjoy a little slice of Telluride history while still enjoying all the creature comforts you could wish for on your next vacation. That’s because The Historic Thompson House can be traced all the way back to the early 20th century. Located in the town’s historic district, the Colorado Cultural Resource Survey tells the tale of the Thompson family settling here from Finland in the early 1900s. It was then kept in the family all the way through the 1970s, at which point, new owners continually updated it for the modern world to marvel. That now includes you.
First, you’ll be just a short walk from all the best shops and restaurants in town, and be in the center of all the action during the town’s active festival season. Not to mention, you're only a short walk to the Gondola for easy ski access. During the winter season, gaze out at the mountain and you’ll see the small specks of skiers coming down the slopes. We’re sure you’ll soon be joining them. Or just hang out on your patio, take in the scenic atmosphere, and wonder what it was like at the turn of the century. Then head inside, turn on the big flatscreen TV, and snuggle up to the fireplace before going to bed in one of its four bedrooms – three with kings and one with a captain's bunk (plus a sleeper sofa).
The home’s open layout also boasts 3.5 baths, plenty of comfortable seating, and modern kitchen appliances even the pickiest chef would admire. Downstairs you’ll find another great area for gathering, with its own complete kitchen, dining area, and quick access to those magnificent mountain views. Yes, for a small taste of Telluride history with a giant splash of modern amenities, get the best of both worlds at The Historic Thompson House.
We stayed here for the Bluegrass Festival. This was a wedding reception party with all of our friends meeting up from all over the country. In as few words as possible, we were very excited to all be together. The neighbor to this home was not so excited and despite not having any speakers in the home (which would be a nice addition), we received a complaint for simply talking on the wonderful deck on the side of the house. We spoke with the neighbor, who adamantly expressed her dislike for the festival season and the noise it brings into her town. Apparently, she has given up on reasoning with the rental property and the people that rent there and has resorted to filing a complaint immediately. If you stay here, you have to keep it down...really low. Other than that, this was a spectacular home in a wonderful location. It gets a bit hot during the day, but you should probably be out enjoying this amazing place then anyways.
