“It's all about the staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We stayed here in early October to enjoy the fall foliage. The staff make this place. From Suzanne, Misha, to Justin and the manager (whose name escapes me, I want to say Keith but could be wrong). They were all a true delight and made our stay just that much more enjoyable. Loved taking the gondola over to town and we did not drive for two days straight. Also appreciate the free parking. Rooms were very spacious and clean. Might be a bit cold in the winter as we were chilly in early October, but I did see heaters in each room. Would gladly return and I wish everyone there a wonderful winter season and Justin from Louisiana good luck with his ski lessons.

WOW,
What a place the BCL is. We stayed here from 9-28 to 10-1 to enjoy the cool fall weather and aspen leaves changing and we were not disappointed. The Lodge is gorgeous and has EVERYTHING you need and more. We had Unit 305A which is a one bedroom lockout unit and can be a two or three bedroom if the other locked units are put to use as they are all connected.
The unit had a nice kitchen with nice appliances which we put to use as we made breakfast there every moring as well as a couple of dinners. Four nice bar-stools at the open bar area to the kitchen with upgraded marble counters. Nice dining table as well. The living room was large and comfortable with a nice gas fireplace. There is a small balcony off the living room which is nice to enjoy some fresh rocky mountain air in the evenings. The bedroom is a bit small but very functional and has a nice bathroom right outside the door. We used their nice gas grills located near the pool to cook some steaks one night and they were very nice. They have a heated pool as well as a nice hot tub as well. The lobby area is very nice with a large screen TV to relax and watch sports if you like. The staff were all very nice and took care of all our needs as one day our Internet did not work and they sent up a tech ASAP to fix. All in all this is an excellent facility with all the comforts of home with a nice Colorado ambiance. The mountain village where the resort is located is awesome as well and the old town is only a 20 minute gondola ride away.
Telluride and the Bear Creek Resort are hard to beat ANYWHERE else in Colorado and we will definitely be back to enjoy it again perhaps for ski season.

Room Tip: We loved unit 305 A as it is on the lobby level- No need for stairs or elevator~

We had a great view of the mountains. The bathroom was excellent, great soaking tub and fantastic shower! We kept the windows open as there was no air conditioning but the room quickly cooled off. The staff was very helpful and even allowed us to use the shower after our trip on Black Bear Road, after we had checked out. Couldn't ask for better!

The only drawback is the restaurants are in town (although the hotel provides a shuttle) and they closed fairly early so we could only grab a pizza, and they don't deliver. However, the front desk provided someone to get our pizza and bring it to us. Overall a great experience and we can't wait to come back.

Telluride and Mountain Village Are hard to get to but once you get there you're in heaven. Beautiful mountain views surrounds you. Summertime activities such as white water rafting hiking biking and golf are all available to you. Beautiful weather bright sunny skies clean-air and western motiff town make the place excellent. A population of cowboys hippies and regular people make for pleasant atmosphere.
Their entertainment brings you back a few decades. Summer festivals are always sold out.
Dining room is more limited in the summer than in the winter but still offers a variety of foods, and there are good.

Travel with a large group (family reunion) can be challenging, and through a friend, I learned of Bear Creek Lodge, Telluride, Colorado's best kept secret and biggest bang for the buck! I didn't think we could afford Penthouse unit 410, but we were amazed at how reasonable this huge, four bedroom four bath duplex was priced. Ten of us occupied this absolutely stunning unit with room to spare! The western sunset views from a full length balcony were breathtaking. The amenities were everything you'd expect from a five star hotel, but why squeeze into a small hotel room when you can have a condo as big as your house! The staff was beyond accommodating and there was something for everyone--pool, gym, internet, a private shuttle. Our family will be back and I hope our same unit number 410 is available!

Room Tip: The building is only four floors, with the luxury units on the top floor. The unit our family stayed...

My family stayed at Bear Creek Lodge from August 5-10 in 2013. We stayed in unit 411, which was ideal for a large family with children--like ours! We found the unit to be spacious and extremely clean. We absolutely loved the robes provided by the lodge--as a couple other rental homes we rented for other family members during the same time frame did not offer robes. All the Lodge staff was friendly and eager to help answer any questions we had. One of the best perks of the lodge is the shuttle service to the gondola. Thank you, Trevor for your hospitality and prompt service! We will definitely be back to BCL.

After attending a conference in Telluride, my husband and I have not stopped encouraging our friends and family to visit this charming town. We were fortunate to have chosen to stay at the Bear Creek Lodge (302). The condo, decorated in a Texas theme, was a great place to relax. The kitchen with Bosch appliances was a surprise and a delight. A friendly staff, a tree house view, a never ending supply of coffee and tea in a beautiful lobby confirmed the we had made the right choice. We were delighted to find that we were within walking distance of The Market in Mountain Village. A short path behind the lodge leads down to the Village and the gondola (for those over 65, coming back up requires you to be physically fit) There was a phone near the gondola to call the hotel shuttle and we never had to wait more than five minutes. The balconies are small but both my husband and I could sit out in the morning, enjoying the view of the mountains and the cool, brisk air. The only disadvantage was the layout of the lodge. The bedrooms are located at the front of the lodge and several evenings, we were awakened by conversation outside our room. However, this was a minor detail and could be averted by shutting the windows and using a fan which was provided. I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone visiting Telluride.
