Why Nancy Swanson chose Southwestern Colorado

Our first visit to Telluride convinced us this was the place for a second home. We started looking at Ranch land and developments in the outskirts of town. Our realtor wanted to show us a unique property in town that was well built and impeccably designed and decorated. We knew immediately it was a perfect way to expereince life in a new town and make a home for our family. The location is incredible! We are located on a private, residential street....mostly foot traffic! Being a block from the Gondola, we have quick and easy access to the mountain and The Mountain Village. The river trail is outside the back door and the views of the river and mountian are completely unobstructed. We sit on the deck and enjoy the views and quiet surroundings. Life is easy as we live just a short walk from Main street (3 blocks).....restaurants and shops, grocery store and medical clinic.....yet the privacy is unparalleled in town!

What makes this townhome unique

Our home is not your 'typical 'rental as we have decorated it as our home. I love wonderful antiques, comfortable furniture and great beds and bedding..... and want our guests stay to be 'first class'. The house is well equipped for your stay.... many special amentities in the kitchen and bathrooms so you will be very comfortable.

Our desire is that Telluride feels like home!

Even better than it looks!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house for a girl's trip for the location. The photos do not do this home justice. The owner was very responsive and easy to deal with. We were a group of 8 and were very comfortable, the location is ideal for skiiers and non-skiiers alike. I will hope to stay at this home again for future trips to Telluride.

Heaven for skiers

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this lovely home for most of the ski season, Jan.-closing day, 2014. You can't ask for a better location if you're a skier and want to be close to the gondola, as well as within walking distance of everything else Telluride has to offer. We had driven from Massachusetts, so we had a car, but we left it parked in the driveway most of the time we were in Telluride. Walking is the way to go in Telluride, where nearly everything is only a few blocks away from 460 Depot Ave.

The house is comfortable and well-equipped for family groups, and our skiing family members who visited were thrilled to be there with us. Breakfast in the cheerful dining area was usually enlivened by the view of the famous Telluride Trail bear, a bronze sculpture in the house's back yard which is a photo op "must" for strolling parents and kids. Depot Avenue is a delightful "private" street which is basically a pedestrian walkway leading to the gondola area. The houses are close together but still very private, and there is a wonderful neighborhood feel to the area.

Telluride is the most beautiful ski area in North America, we think, and the skiing is as challenging or as easy as you want it to be. Expert skiers can ride the lifts with less advanced skiers, and everybody can find as much fun as they can handle on the runs, and meet back at the lift. We were blessed with excellent conditions for our whole time in town. For a small place, Telluride has more terrific restaurants per capita than anyplace else we've been, and one of the best, Cosmo's, is right down the block from 460 Depot, in the Hotel Columbia. We made that 2 minute walk for dinner quite a few times!

Nancy is a friendly and conscientious landlord/host. She even made sure that fresh flowers and succulents graced several rooms at the beginning of our stay. If you value convenience and proximity to all that Telluride has to offer, you can't go wrong with this vacation rental property.

Perfection! Exceeded our expectations... So conveniently located and so comfortable. The layout was also great. Fireplace.... Well stocked upscale kitchen... Great view... Hot tub... Comfy clean furniture. This place is luxurious and extremely functional with kids. Nancy is the best host... She was very responsive and helpful with all of our renting needs. We were so lucky to find such a lovely home to rent during the Bluegrass Festival.

Beautiful House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing stay at this property. I agree with all of the great things that have been said in the previous reviews--really a 5-star experience in every way. I wish we could have stayed a month instead of a week.

Truly Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending one week at this beautiful home. We had eight people in our party to celebrate a 60th birthday. The accommodations were fantastic! A very warm and inviting home with a location that is Truly Perfect. We had the pleasure of meeting Nancy and so enjoyed that. Thanks again Nancy for all the special extras! We plan to visit again next year.
