About the property

2 beds, 1 bath with amazing mountain views 20 minutes from town of Telluride

Imagine being placed within a paining of the most beautiful place on earth surrounded by 14,000 foot peaks with aspen dotting the landscape. Silent except for the sounds of nature and your sighs as you realize where you are but can't believe your good fortune. Stay at our wonderfully unique home in the shape of a pyramid. The home sleeps four with one bed built into the wall surrounded by glass allowing you to feel as though you are sleeping beneath the stars and the other on the second level allows for all the comforts of home. The house is 20 minutes from downtown Telluride and Mountain Village but a world away for those desiring solitude and incomparable beauty. Relax on the spacious deck or enjoy the opportunity to hot tub under stars you never knew existed. In the summer the are is a mecca for those loving the out of doors. In the winter you are a short 20 minute drive from one of the best ski resorts in the country. At the end of the ski day or summer day of exploring the surrounding country side you will have the privilege of returning to one of the most unique homes you will have ever enjoyed. The entire house has been recently remodeled and comes complete with steam shower, modern kitchen and satellite tv with wireless internet for when you have to be in touch with the outside world. We welcome you to experience beauty words cannot describe. Join us for your next ski vacation or outdoor adventure in the majestic San Juan mountain hideaway.

Mountain Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Pyramid House and we hope there are many more to come. This property is cozy and is designed perfectly for total relaxation. I already miss opening my eyes to a sky full of stars at night and streaming light coming through the windows all day. The area is stunning this time of year with spectacular fall foliage. This is a perfect location that is close to Telluride and the hikes, gondola, shopping etc... that awaits, but is tucked away so you can escape it all. Our two dogs feel like this is home away from home too. Thanks for a fantastic second trip!

View is awesome. Fans always running are pretty loud. Could not get any wifi or tv's to work.

Breathtaking views, peaceful, remote

  • 5 of 5

I agree with all the 5 star reviews. It is a very unique, loft style, pyramid house with views that make you never want to leave. It is truly remote, but not too far away given the complete solitude it offers. The house was well maintained and had everything we needed and more (we had no need for the 3 TV's, but they are available...). I'd recommend this place for a couple, or a young family looking to get away and truly spend time with each other. I traveled there in Aug of 2017 with my wife and our daughter of 16mo.

Absolutely Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The pyramid house was the perfect place for our honeymoon. We stayed there for 7 nights, and we were so sad to leave when the time came. The house is very nice inside, and decorated well to make a cozy, cabin feel. The windows upstairs are an incredible touch to the bedroom as you wake up to the beautiful sunrise right above you (which didn't prevent us from sleeping in). The house owners are really the only neighbors, but the house and tress are placed so it feels like it's just you out there. It's a really easy drive to town, Telluride, which is worth driving to every day. The deck is perfect to sit and eat meals while looking out at the mountains. The hot tub is an awesome addition as well, a great way to relax after long days hiking. Overall, an amazing experience for an awesome getaway!
