There were 12 of us, a diverse lot parents and grown children (ages 68 down to 22) and all 12 of us were pretty much amazed at how great the house is, kudos to the owners. Telluride is hard to top, but this house on the hill topped it, indeed. All of the bedrooms are well-appointed and comfy. The kitchen is rather amazing, everything one needs. The location is great, call the ride share or walk down to the market/gondola and off to the most beautiful setting in the world. But I digress...
The money spent is worth it, imo, though there are some fees we did not expect, but that doesn't detract from the value. If i know I am going to get solid 5 star value from a hotel or rental, I don't mind the nickel and diming and if it were my investment, I would protect it, too, because one never knows what kind of renters will inhabit the appointed property...my point, in this case, it is worth every penny!
If you have a large group, want the beauty, comfort, amenities and value of a luxury stay, light this place up! I am guessing the owners are new and they have done a nice job, credit where credit is due. Now, please send my security deposit back:)
The home was beyond our expectations. We were a party of ten and we all unanimously agree we would gladly go back. There was plenty of room to gather, eat, visit, etc. and also plenty of quiet space. Mountain views from every window, and a ultra gourmet kitchen. Definitely a FIVE STAR rating.
