The Walker Residence - a SkyRun Telluride Property

You've seen those incredible homes under the gondola going from Mountain Village to Town?  This 6,700 sq ft gem is one of the best properties in Telluride that is available for rental.

This log home on 4 levels is huge at 6,700 sq ft and sleeps up to 18 but also feels cozy.  There are 2 living rooms, 2 Washers and Dryers, 2 master suites, 2 kitchens.  It's ideal for 2 families with lots of kids, an extended family 3 generations all together or for 4 couples. Drive up the hill to the end of Mountain Village Blvd and this home is directly ahead at the end of the road.  There is parking for 3 cars in the driveway (note that guests don't have access to the 3 car garage).  But you don't need a car.  We can arrange for your transport from the airport, then you'll be able to get to anywhere from the ski slopes.  Slopes closed/can't ski?  Don't worry, you also have free access to the neighborhood on-call dial-a-limo that will take you to the village from where you can use the free gondola over to the town.  The residence is up above Mountain Village and the additional elevation gives you commanding views for 200 degrees of Mt Wilson and even mountains in Utah on a clear day.  The views aren't wasted either as you can enjoy them from one of 4 decks or out of the many sets of floor to ceiling windows.  There is even a 4th level 'crows nest' with a desk and telescope and rooftop deck. (smoking is NOT allowed on this deck).When you enter the front entrance, you are greeted with phenominal views in the living/entry area.  There is a fireplace as well as a pool table in this, the main living area for the home.  To the left is the kitchen and huge group table seating up to 12.  Keep going and you're at the ski locker area with a full laundry room, then outside to the granite picnic table, gas grill, fire pit and 8 person hot-tub right on the slopes (but not too close for privacy).To the left on the main level is a dramatic self-contained guest master suite with it's own deck and full kitchen(!)  The windows and view must be seen to be believed... this is why you come to Telluride...  see the photos below.Heading downstairs, there is another fireplace and living area with large TV and setting area perfect for watching movies.  Off of this room is a 2nd laundry room and 2 kids suites sleeping 6 people on 5 beds in each room.  Both rooms have a queen bed and 4 built in bunk beds.  These rooms are named the 'girls room' and the 'boys room' by the Walkers, but the decor will work for anyone.Even though you're in the basement, you are not underground at all.  The many full windows have outstanding views to the slopes.Going upstairs to the 3rd level there is a sitting room/library overlooking the living room below, and the main master suite.  The master suite has everything you would expect.  It's own deck, a king bed, walk in closet, 5 piece bathroom, jetted tub overlooking the slopes and a steam shower.Go up to the 4th level and you're in a rooftop 'crows nest' that has 360 degree views (and a very powerful telescope) and yet another deck.This is the kind of dream home that creates family memories.  You'll be back year after year.Telluride Bus Lic: #01773

Good and Bad

  • 1 of 5

Good: Great location. Steps away from the terrain park run and a short distance to the mountain village. Big place. There is plenty of room for multiple families.

Bad: Terrain park run is not an easy run for beginner skiers. So, it might not be a ski in/ski out for the everyone. There is no TV in the living area. The major TV is in the big bedroom which makes it a little inconvenient for the whole group to view. Also, the "master" bedroom on the main floor is a queen or possibly a full bed. It isn't listed on the website which makes it a little deceiving because we assumed that a master bedroom would have a king. The bedroom is huge. I'm not sure why it is a small bed. The proximity to the slopes is great, but keep in mind that they groom the slopes all hours of the night. We had trouble sleeping with the constant beeping and thought we were being abducted by aliens when the snowcats headlights hit the house. This might not be as big of a problem when there is more natural snow. We were there during one of the worst droughts in decades, so they were having to manage a lot of man made snow.

Owner's Response: Chad, I’m glad you acknowledged the great location and size of our home. I find the home is one of easiest in Telluride to ski-in/ski-out of, so I was surprised to read in your review you found it difficult. The approach to the slope is totally flat to get on the slope then you take Misty Maiden run through the Hoot Brown Terrain Park. Just 20yds to the slope, then 400 yds to the lift. It's labeled blue, but that's because of the jumps (but you don’t have to do the jumps!). It runs parallel to a green so it's only slightly more pitch. But if you are a first-day beginner, that little bit of pitch will make a difference. Some people may feel intimidated to ski down past the jumps in a park but it's totally fine to do to access your property in and out along the side. You can see the access path in our winter photos. Guests should know that if you can't ski that, there really won't be much terrain in Telluride that you will be able to enjoy. We recommend that beginners will want to take the free shuttle down to the base to the ski school. Yes, part of the “charm” of being on the slopes for any ski-in ski-out property is the night grooming. The easy slopes like this one are groomed nightly – sounds and lights that excite many skiers whether it's man-made or mother nature snow. There is additional grooming for the jumps occasionally if they're setting up a new feature. Perhaps you experienced that. The sounds are something to get used to for sure, but part of any ski-in ski-out home and people should be aware of that for sure, so thanks for pointing it out. As we do correctly specify in the listing for this property (and as I emailed your wife when she asked), the bed in the suite bedroom on main floor is a queen; only one king bed in this home. As the pictures show, the large living room features a stone fireplace and pool table. The large suite bedroom on first floor has comfy leather theater-style seats in front of the TV. I’m sorry the TV arrangement in this home as it is clearly depicted (4 TVs from 21" to 88" in public and private areas of the home) didn’t meet your needs. Finally, despite my prayers and snow dances, you are right there is not the usual amount of snow this year. The resort is being as creative and industrious as they can to maintain a quality ski experience. I’m sorry that contributed to your 1-star review.

Has potential

  • 3 of 5

There are many positive things about this house. Easily held our party of 9 and could have handled many more. Hot tub was very nice and sauna in great shape. As the pictures show, there are some dated furnishings and fixtures.

This property has great potential, but it needs some attention before it is worth what we paid for it. Doors were very hard to open, kitchen floor had water damage (with a nail sticking out), steps down to the gondola path were loose and falling down, outdoor furniture was falling apart and unusable.

One major selling point was the proximity to the gondola, however, don't underestimate the hill... I was definitely winded by the time I made it to the house.

We had a wonderful trip and nothing I mentioned above is a deal breaker, just would have expected some of these details would have been dealt with for the price.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your stay. Wanted to let anyone reading this that the floor was replaced after this stay. The brand new icemaker had leaked (also fixed of course) and the floor warped and popped up when it dried. Sorry it happened before your stay. The doors are european and are tricky. Have to pull up on the handle for it to lock and have to unlock before pushing down, but they are fully operational. We have put instructions in the home for people not familiar with their operation. Also for others reading this, this home comes with the free 'dial-a-ride' that will take you and your whole party anywhere in mountain village (grocerty, gondola) and back home. Call them adn they come in 5-10 mins usually. I wouldn't want to walk up from the gondola either!
