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! While the lodge looks nice, once we were in our rooms, it was a different story. We had reserved a 2 bedroom with 2 twin beds and a king bed. We had... More

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

We booked this online at Hotels.com once we got a wedding invite for dear friends and knew we wanted to bring our dog along. Telluride is the perfect place to bring a large dog and feel right at home. The Bear Creek Lodge was assigned to us by the Mountainside Inn. It worked out perfectly since the shuttle driver would...
