Just got back from a trip with 43 other ski club members. Location of the lodge was wonderful. We stayed in room 305 which was a three bedroom, 3 bath condo. Two of the three bedrooms were very nice. The one that was behind the kitchen was small and the bathroom for that was outside the bedroom. Furnishings were wonderful.... More

Every December, for the past 15 years, we have visited Telluride, Colorado to ski. Bear Creek Lodge is hands down the best place we have ever stayed. The condo was so spacious and beautiful, the staff was incredibly friendly, and the location and views were unbelievable. We went with 2 other couples and had so much fun we didn't want... More

We stayed in room 302. First let me start of with the pros: Room was huge! We had a little nook as soon as you walk in the door to store stuff. The bedroom and bathroom were off to the right as you walked in. If you kept going, there was a dining room table that sat at least 6... More

Stay at this lodge as it has great staff / facilities & location . If u want to really cook - request another room as kitchen items are poor - little thing like tiny tiny bowls / small spoons/ 1 small pot - just disappointing for such a huge kitchen space. Room also needs a new TV as sound is... More

This is a lovely facility. We stayed in room 112 which was a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit. The master suite is exceptional with a huge well designed bathroom that makes it very easy for two people to get ready. The kitchen is large with nice appliances. There is a long bar with bar stools as well as a dining... More

Bear Creek Lodge is a timeshare facility. You can get entire 'villa' (2 bedrooms, great room, kitchen), or you can get a lock-off unit. Given the architecture, you can get a single 'hotel' like room, which (in case of Bear Creek) is the Master Bedroom + Master Bath, OR you can get something like 'junior suite', where you get the...

Whenever I visit Telluride, I usually look for a nice vacation rental by owner. I decided to give this lodge a try based on others reviews. Big mistake!

This is a wonderful place to stay with family or a couple. The prices in off season are very reasonable for the quality of the property. We stayed in #108 which was pet friendly as we were traveling with our pups. This unit was very well appointed in the kitchen and furnishings. There are frills on the patio for guests... More

Bear Creek Lodge was a great stay. The staff was very nice and helpful. We stayed in room 309A, the bigger the number the closer to the mountains, 312, I think, was the closest to the mountains. The parking lot is also on that end but a small price to pay for stunning views. The room itself had a big... More
