Cheap Vacation Rental Homes in Telluride?

I am getting married in August in Telluride and I am trying to find some good resources for large families looking to rent a 2-3 bedroom home for the long weekend. I am aware of the hotel options, but I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction when looking for small homes to rent for larger families. Thank you!

Cheap and Telluride are not 2 words that usually go together.

I would suggest looking at www.vrbo.com (vacation rentals by owner)

It is a listing of people who rent their own property. Often you deal directly with the owner, sometimes they have an agent to handle the property. It will list properties, how many bedrooms, etc. You can plug in the dates that you are interested in and search that way. Telluride and Mountain Village are listed separately.

When you get to the site, click on Colorado on the map and then you can select a town. I looked at a few 3 bedrooms and most were at least $300 per night, some are MUCH more. Depends on location, etc.

Good luck.

Agreed on the cheap and Telluride reference. It is all relative though. If VRBO doens't work, Alpine lodging has a ton of homes and 3 bedroom condos as well.

cheap is relative...compared to Vail and Aspen, Telluride really is cheap, as long as you avoid the festival weekends. VRBO and Accommodations in Telluride have always provided us options which are about 1/2 the price as lesser properties in Vail/Beaver Creek. Also, i would highly recommend the town for its charm and unique properties, vs mountain village, especially in the summer.
