“Lively and fun by day, a ghost town by night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

People go to bed early when they're skiing all day, or they spend their evenings down in the charming town of Telluride. Mountain Village has the bare minimum of restaurants and (expensive) ski shops, and not much more. There is often a really fun activity for kids in the plaza (e.g., trapeze) plus a bonfire and a crepe stand.

“A Fairytale Village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Mountain village is amazing! It looks like an adorable European village. Mountain village is very safe with many restaurants, shops and things to do. It is a must-see while in Telluride.

“Crass, gaudy, and pretentious.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

If you are going to travel all the way to Telluride, stay in the real town. The Mountain Village is fake and seems to have had little development planning. If you've seen one "resort village" in colorado, you've seen them all.

“Park your car here, and take the gondola to Telluride.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Mountain Village is awful.. It is like California in the mountains... totally suburban, overpriced, UGLY, and an assault to the eyes. The buildings are totally nasty imitation Swiss village.
It was built by someone from Beverly Hills... and it is obvious.
