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.

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!

Fun winter stay!

  • 5 of 5

We (Wife and I + doggie) very much enjoyed our winter stay. House was clean and caretaker was accommodating when there was issues with the heater. The beds were comfy and warm. We had no problems getting to the property with 4-wheel drive, it would have been very tough without it in the winter. The views were breathtaking when it was clear! Such a beautiful place. If you require sleeping in complete darkness a mask might be suggested as there are so many windows, depending on the moon, it could be fairly bright at night in the place. It felt secluded, the nearest house being 200+ yards away and none of the windows really face the neighboring house. Would recommend it for anyone wanting to get away for a quiet week or weekend but still having easy access to telluride and some civilization.

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!
