It could have been the altitude, but we were dizzy with delight at the exquisite Mountain Lodge in Telluride! (Full disclosure: Mountain Lodge is actually located in the charming town of Mountain Village, which, at 9600 feet elevation, literally takes your breath away. It is a sister city to Telluride, which is nestled in a beautiful valley below -- a 13-minute FREE gondola ride away.) Thanks to the gondola, you never have to drive your car anywhere. The Lodge is a short walk to a gondola station.
We got lucky: Our reservation, placed via a call center, got a little messed up. But thanks to the grace and calm, professional handling of the situation by Megan Cordry of Guest Services, we were upgraded from a studio room to a luxurious one-bedroom apartment! Luxuriously furnished, full kitchen, king bed, two huge TVs, gas fireplaces, fantastic views, etc., etc. -- it was wonderful.
We would heartily recommend the Mountain Lodge to any visitor, for any season. Summer is full of festivals and other happenings in both Telluride and Mountain Village. In the winter time, of course, this is one of the major ski places on the planet.
