About Dan Young

Being an outdoor enthusiast all my life and having explored the country for the best hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, biking and fishing possible, I found it all in one place; right here in Telluride.

Dan Young purchased this condo in 2006

Why Dan Young chose Southwestern Colorado

I consider this town to be a secret gem lost in the mountains of the highest concentration of 14ers in all of Colorado. They surround this restored mining town like a cathedral and every time I venture out, I find myself. In this place, there is everything to keep you connected with the past, yet with all the amenities of today. The restaurants, unique stores and festivals with all of the other sports activities available make this town perfect for anyone who wants to breath fresh air and relax. I think it is a great destination place.

What makes this condo unique

My condo is in the most unique settings in all of the town. Located in the very center of the historic part of Telluride, but just across a footbridge adjacent to the San Miguel River. The sound of the glacier water rolling over its rocky bed will lull you to sleep every night. Literally a five minute walk to the Gondola, Town Park, Festivals, Chair 8 and Restaurants you never need to get in your car until leaving; you can walk everywhere! This condo is directly adjacent to a redwood hot tub over looking the river, great for long days on the slopes. The master bedroom and living room look out towards Telluride Peak and Ajax. The interior has been remodeled in classic Telluride style with a fire place in the living room and both bedrooms. A truly ideal place in a truly perfect part of the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dan, the stay was incredible. Up to now I believed that Glacier National Park and its confines were my favorite place in the lower 48 but I must say Telluride is at the very least its equal! Your condo made it perfect, I hope it was left in the condition we arrived, except with a few used sheets (I was a girl scout, try to always leave where I stay better than when I arrive, but couldn't do that with your place because it was immaculate). You were right about the location! After a thorough exploration of the town I couldn’t imagine a better spot… smack in the middle of everything. The stairs were no problem for my dad. I could go on and on, but I won’t bore you. One amusing thing however: as you know, the laws about marijuana are quite strict in most places but Colorado. When I told my children (5, the youngest 18) that I could see “The Green Store” from the balcony they cracked up. I don’t suppose that is a selling point for the condo, but it’s quite intriguing when you come from Texas. I actually went in and bought one of my sons a t-shirt. I felt a little shifty coming out but the staff was quite friendly. In fact, everyone there was friendly! One night I was in the liquor store buying, I am ashamed to admit, a box of wine and the salesman teased me about my high class taste. The next morning my sister and I ran into him, almost literally, on the Jud Wiebe trail where he recognized me and told me he was glad to see me after my box of wine. I assured him I had not consumed the entire box the previous night. Hah!

Thanks again, I know I will make it back to Telluride and if your condo is available that will be my only choice!!

Awesome place, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We had absolutely great experience (spent there 8 nights for skiing). Telluride itself is so beautiful!!! It was our first time there and we loved it. Dan's place was awesome (true ski in/ski out). Close to everything - gondola, lift, market, bakery (is a must visit!), restaurants (we saw some celebrities in one of them!). Condo has everything you need and was in great shape and ready for us. Kids loved the bunk beds! Dan is super helpful and communication was very timely. We definitely recommend this place to stay and will try to come back next season.

Great location, helpful responsive owner.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in the heart of Telluride, along the river. The location can't be beat. It's pretty small and nothing fancy but everything was clean and the owner was great. Great value. The spiral staircase is a bit of a nuisance but they're working with a small space. Just a heads-up in case that might be an issue. I would recommend this place.

Clean, cozy and awesome location.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. Traveling with a gentleman that is 80 and the spiral staircase was not a problem at all. Best pizza at Brown Dog Pizza, gondola ride up to Mountain Village, shopping and dodging a few rain showers. Perfect in every way.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well kept. The owner was great to work with. The location is wonderful, very quiet and on the river. It is very close to the middle of town and to the Grocery store. The spiral staircase was a bit much for my elderly father in law. Plenty of places for sleeping.

Car: not necessary

My home is arguably, located in the most perfect spot in all of Telluride. Uniquely situated on the San Miguel River but in the center of the historic district, it also is a hike in and out AND ski in and out. Located within a 3 minute walk or glide to chair 8 or the Gondola, access to town or the village is pretty darn convenient. The river only enhances the whole experience because you really feel like you are in your own world. In the evening, dinner is only a five minute walk to ALL restaurants! We bought the home because of the location, but the interior has as much charm as the exterior. We love it here in Telluride, I think you will too. Dan
