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.

Stunning won't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our two dogs and I stayed at this gorgeous house and property at the end of October. Pyramid house sits on stunning Wilson Mesa and feels worlds away from it all, but is a short 25 minute drive to Telluride. We came in off season when the leaves and crowds were gone, and it was the perfect spot to regroup, read, hike etc. The architecture of the home is beautiful. Just as pictured. We really enjoyed the steam shower too. We cannot wait to visit again. Thank you for an incredible experience!!!!

Beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time staying at the Pyramid House. We had zero plans other than just getting away and this was the perfect destination for my girlfriend and my dog. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the tranquility unforgettable! We will definitely be back in the winter to tackle snowboarding the mountains!

This property has amazing views from every window!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful week here on the Wilson Mesa in the pyramid house. We even had one night of snow. This area is beautiful and we enjoyed the dog friendy house. The beds are comfortable. The views from the hot tub amazing. It took us about 25 minutes to drive to Telluride. The free dog friendly gondolla is great and there is a well stocked grocery store in Telluride too. The caretaker left a light on for us and an electric heater which was much appreciated, as we arrived late. He also sent us an email prior to our arrival providing us with his phone number in case we had any questions or issues. We look forward to returning.

Tranquil mountain bliss

  • 5 of 5

This was truly the perfect romantic honeymoon. We had so much fun. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio every morning and saw many deer and elk. We also loved the steam shower and used the hot tub every night to watch the sunset! We had an amazing honeymoon and hope to return someday.

Cute Spot, but Bad Time of Year to Go

  • 4 of 5

The Pyramid House was quite charming and had great views of the surrounding Colorado Rockies. The hot tub on the deck overlooking the scenery was the best part. The house was fully stocked with extra blankets and towels and came with a washer and dryer set, although we couldn't find directions on how to use it, so it was a tad tricky to figure out. The shower even had a steam setting (or was it a suana?), which was a lovely bonus. The kitchen was fully stocked with all cooking and eating utensils and there were three TVs, which was more than plenty. It was a perfect size for the two of us, but wouldn't recommend it for more than 4 people (and 2 of those 4 should be kids). The views from the master bed were great: you could see all the mountains by day and the stars popping up throughout the night.

We had a few downsides, but these are all relative to what you're looking to get out of your stay. LOCATION. While it had gorgeous views, it is definitely remote. There are house scattered around the 5+ mile drive up the mountain, but those are literally the only things up there. If you need anything (groceries, gas, entertainment), you have to go to Sawpit/Placerville or Telluride/Mountain Village. There is not much along the highway, so if I need or want to do anything, be prepared to spend some time driving anywhere. Roads up the mountain were unpaved and have lots of pot holes, so you need to drive slow or have a big car. TIMING. We traveled in early May, which is the off season for the entire area. The majority of stores in downtown Telluride were closed as were all of the gondolas. Same with other surrounding cities like Mountain Village, Ouray, etc. After deciding to make the trek down the mountain, it was disappointing to see mostly everything was closed. Our weather was also strange: it rained, then snowed, then was sunny and warm. HOUSE KINKS. The master bed views (and other windows) are great, but there are no blinds. Bring an eye mask so you aren't blinded by the sunrise and turn on the AC during the day because it does get hot when the sun is out. And I'm sure this is an isolated incident, but the kitchen sink was clogged when we arrived and flooded on us the first morning. The owner was helpful and was able to get someone out to fix it the next day. We made due, but we couldn't wash any of the dishes we had and couldn't use the sink for a whole day.

It was a great little house ... just make sure the time of year is right for your stay!
