We stayed in a one-bedroom suite for five nights. For starters, the customer service at the front desk was fantastic! Upon arriving, we were greeted and were able to check in promptly. They provided us details of the grounds (parking, access to the gondola, pool, hot tub, restaurant/bar, nearby grocery store, etc.). Our suite was unbelievable--the view of the mountains right outside our balcony! Because our suite had a full kitchen, we were able to bring our own groceries and cook dinner a few nights during the week. A great way to save some money! Also, the gondola station is just a few minutes away next door to the grocery store. The hotel offers a shuttle ride there or you can access it easily via a sidewalk/trail near the lodge. The gondola ride into Telluride was approximately 10 minutes from Mountain Village--not bad! The concierge supplied us with magazines on Telluride and pamphlets on fun activities throughout the town (and nearby towns). We also took advantage of their swimming pool, which was perfect on a hot, summer afternoon. Initially, we planned to stay in Telluride to be closer to the shops and restaurants, but in hindsight we are overjoyed we chose to stay in Mountain Village at the Mountain Lodge instead. This place is quiet and you really get to experience nature--mountains, the wilderness, etc. And we were looking to squeeze in some R&R! Overall, our experience at Mountain Lodge was top-notch! This place was very convenient, affordable, and accommodating. We would certainly stay here again and highly recommend it to others as well.
