About Amy Cook

We fell in love with the beauty of Telluride nearly twenty years ago. Initially we purchased a condo in Mountain Village but then decided that we loved being in downtown Telluride surrounded by the shops, the restaurants and the colorful history of the town. An older building in the heart of downtown came on the market which we gutted and made into two dream properties. As Texans, this penthouse is our home away from home. We invite you to enjoy it as much as we do. It's our little nest of luxury.

Amy Cook purchased this condo in 2001

Why Amy Cook chose Telluride

The location of the penthouse is one of the most coveted in Telluride. Everything in town is just out the front steps and we are only two blocks from the gondola where we have complimentary ski storage during ski season. One of the most frequent comments we hear from our guests is the amazing location. We are in the same block as The New Sheridan Hotel and located above Paragon Sports.

What makes this condo unique

Our guests comment on our beds and bedding over and over. We splurged on couture Italian Frette linens which are incredibly luxurious and beautiful. The best feature, however, must be the spectacular views from the great room and private deck. The deck is the highest downtown and is what sold us on buying the property in the first place. Our guests and visitors are routinely awestruck and shocked at the magnificent views in every direction. There's no better place to be than on the deck entertaining friends or enjoying the spa.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It is rare that professional pictures such as the ones on the website don't 'do it justice' so to speak. You were right...this place is 10 times more beautiful in person...and is way bigger than I imagined. It is beautifully decorated and we are going to absolutely have the exact R&R, mountain-style, that we were hoping for. Max was very welcoming and took time to walk us through the entire condo, show us all of the 'ins and outs' and even walk us down to introduce us to the gal at the store below the condo for renting bikes, etc.

Well, my wife is soaking up all of the gorgeous sun on the patio so I believe I will wrap this up and go join her! Thank you, thank you, thank you! And thank you for the wonderful 'welcome basket' and treats.

Heart of Telluride is more, much more, than the photos and write-up. Your hosts are gracious and kind, always with the helpful ideas and quick emails. We were greeted with a welcome tray unlike any I’ve seen - and I’ve rented about two dozen homes over the past dozen years. The “wow” factor of this place is through the roof. While we Jeeped all around the San Juan’s, we were always delighted to get back to Heart of Telluride to relax in the awesome hot tub, to watch the sunset from the deck, and to simply gaze at the surrounding awe. The beds were amazingly comfortable, the steam shower is lovely, and the entire home is very well appointed. I have rented some rather high end homes, but none have been as well stocked in the kitchen and bathrooms as Heart of Telluride. To be honest, Amy and her family could easily charge more for their home. Heart of Telluride is worth it; they deliver so much more. WoW!

What a great place! Can't say enough good things about the Heart of Telluride! The Penthouse is very nice, well designed, with quality bedding/furniture, etc. The people who run this property are extremely attentive and responsive. We had 3 couples staying here and the Penthouse was more than spacious enough and we were all quite comfortable. In addition, there is a stunning outdoor area with a hot tub, outdoor grill, and jaw dropping views of the mountains. We would not hesitate to stay here again . . . I have nothing but great things to say about the property or the location. Again, the people who run Heart of Telluride really go out of there way to make sure your stay is perfect.

Best Vacation Experience of My Life

  • 5 of 5

Heart of Telluride is the destination of a lifetime. We stayed in the penthouse and let me say - it was AMAZING. As soon as you walk in you notice the amenities, decor, and ambiance you realize that you are in a 5 star property also feel absolute comfort as if you are in a second home! The location is fantastic - close to everything, and allowed us to experience restaurants, shops, and the culture of Telluride. On nights we didn't feel like going to a restaurant, we utilized the full and spacious gourmet kitchen to cook for ourselves and guests. The bedrooms are gloriously comfortable and each bathroom feels like a master bath with heated floors (so great when it's cold outside!) and even steam showers which are great for sore muscles after skiing - by the way, the gondola and outfitters are only a few blocks away as well as hiking trails.

The penthouse balcony is breathtaking with a near 360 degree view of the entire town. It's a perfect place to have coffee in the morning and relax in the hot tub in the evenings!

The property caretaker greeted us upon arrival and checked on us frequently (and is just a really nice and professional person!).

If you are thinking about experiencing Telluride and everything it has to offer - STOP THINKING ABOUT IT! You have to experience Heart of Telluride no matter the time of year. You won't regret it. The only sad thing that I have to say is that we couldn't stay longer! We were so thankful for an amazing property that allowed us to have a once in a lifetime vacation!

There is nothing better!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in the penthouse and we couldn't have DREAMED of a better stay! The penthouse is clean, comfortable, and so much fun. Our group opted to stay in most nights, cooking in the fully equipped kitchen, and hanging out on the beautiful penthouse deck, rather than going out because it was just so comfortable. We hosted a couple little get togethers and it couldn't have been more perfect and fun! The hot tub made for perfect after ski relaxation with the most amazing views surrounding us at every angle. The caretaker was attentive, helpful and always willing to help! We had the absolute best time and none of us wanted to leave! We will be back for sure!!
