My husband and I spent three nights at the Lumiere for our honeymoon in September 2013. We had used a living social deal for two of the nights we were there, so they could have easily treated us differently from those who pay full price. When we arrived, Bas (the on-site manager) greeted us at the door and gave us a tour around the place. And to our surprise they had upgraded our room to one of the "residences" rather than the traditional room we had booked.
The room was incredible. Full kitchen, dining room, two bathrooms, an incredible shower, comfortable beds, multiple flat screen televisions. There was also a bottle of champagne with a hand written note congratulating us on our new marriage. The concierge was great about recommendations and helping us schedule massages.
We ate dinner at the Little Bar the first night we were there. Pretty limited tapas style menu (it was off-season so even more limited than normal) but everything we tried was great. They had local Telluride Brewery beers on tap which we appreciated. Breakfast every morning was great- traditional European cold breakfast- fine meats and cheeses, smoked salmon and bagels, pastries, hard boiled eggs, fruit, yogurt and local coffee.
We used the hot tub and the sauna and the comfy robes left in the room (especially great because we were not expecting SNOW on our honeymoon, but sure enough!). The walk to the free Gondola in mountain village was easy, taking you right to the heart of Telluride. There are also several restaurants in Mountain Village that would be an easy walk from the Lumiere. During ski season, it is an ideal ski-in/ski-out location.
We live in Denver and had decided to do a short honeymoon here in Colorado to save up for a bigger international trip next summer. We could not have asked for a more perfect experience our first few days of marriage. A lot of this is owed to Bas and the staff at the Lumiere. We will definitely be back!
