We stayed here on a driving trip in the US. The lodge location is exactly as it says...in the Mountains! The drive up was beautiful! Absolutely fabulous location. The self catering rooms, were very well equipped (even a double sided fire!) and very comfortable, everything provided, right down to a re-useable bag for shopping in the local supermarket (walking distance). Take the cable car from the lodge down into Telluride, it's free and is very enjoyable, if only for the views.
