About Karla Elinoff
We own the Elinoff Gallery as well as the Alpinist & the Goat fondue restaurant in town. We love it here! Stop by and introduce yourself when you do. We originally purchased this exceptional condo because it was the BEST location in the core. Right next to the new Madelaine Hotel and it's Starbucks, it has restaurants within 10 yards and the gondola is only 150 yards away! We've fixed it up so it's comfy and when we bought a house about 2 min away, we kept the condo so we could have it for friends when they visit. Our Business license number per town of Mountain Village is #16
Karla Elinoff purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Karla Elinoff chose Telluride Ski Resort
We live in town so Telluride is our home! As a visitor, you'll notice that everyone is says "hi" on the streets and you'll meet the same people on the lifts as you will in the restaurants at night. Enjoy the small town friendliness that doesn't exist in larger ski towns. Only Telluride!
What makes this Condo unique
Location! Location! Location! Private ski lockers and a roof-top hot tub make this the best for families. Also, the two sofa's are "comfort sleepers" made by American Leather. They are super comfortable sofas that convert to high end beds and sleep like high end beds, not sofa beds. There is FREE limousine service that can be accessed for use by you so a car to go anywhere in the village is not necessary. Simply call Dial-a-Ride at 970.728.8888 and give them access code JZ6303 or download the DAR app at.... https://village-dar.app.link/welcome ....and use the access code JZ6303 and after signing int he first time, use it like UBER. Enjoy!

Best Ever for Skiers
This property sits at the top of the "bunny" hill" (Meadows trail) providing easy access to the ski slopes. It is also just a short walk through Mountain Village to the gondola for transport to the Telluride. As a extra bonus, the property came with two complimentary ski medallions, which reduced our overall cost. The condo comfortably fit our party of 8. The kitchen was great, as we cooked most of our meals., and we enjoyed soaking in the property's spa. We would stay there again next year.
Fantastic place - Love our stay
We really like this place. Our group hiked a 14er (Mount Wilson). Even though the condo is not all that large, it can sleep easily 10-14 people so it's great for large groups who are going to be active during the day and just need a comfortable place to eat and sleep in between adventures. Great hot tub with views too.
Blue Mesa 5
Great location. Easy access to gondola and plaza
Fantastic as Always! 3rd time at Blue Mesa #5
Best location in Mountain Village. The Condo is large and has everything you need. There is so much to do in this area. Access to the Gondolas and Mtn Bike Chair give you access to many trails and the town. On our last trip we didn't even use our car for the week.
Rent a Jeep and explore the mountain passes
The Bike Park (it has expanded since prior years) and the XC trails
Hike Ajax, Waterfalls Canyon (Ophir), Bear Creek, Blue Lake and Cornet Falls
SUP Alta Lakes and the San Miguel River if it's not flowing too fast.
Eat at Gnar Tacos and Siam Thai.
The only small negative - In the summer, the third floor bedroom gets warm. There are several fans in the condo to help cool things down once the sun sets.
Owner did not answer my calls.
The owner wouldn't answer my calls. Everything outdated.
We have 5 properties and we respond immediately to everything. Is the only thing he needed was to say was that it's not contemporary enough? Linens are new. Towels are new. Floors are slate. Appliances are stainless and pretty new. Tons of dishes, silverware. Quality cookware. Toilet paper all there. He doesn't like the color of the tile? With spotty cell service on the mountain all he needed to do was leave a message and our voice mail says "temporarily unavailable or out of cellular range. leave a message and we'll call you back as soon as we receive it". We never got a message.
A great value
First time to Telluride after several visits to Denver based resorts (Vail, Breckenridge, etc.) and had a week of great skiing. This rental unit is situated perfectly within the town of Mountain Village, which is a beautiful European style village midway up the mountain. It is just a few steps to the slopes as well as the free gondola into town. This is also where the ski school is located, so it made the morning drop-off for my kids very easy. Equipment rental options (we used Christys sports) also very conveniently located near unit.
The condo is quite spacious, with plenty of bedroom and bathroom space for larger groups, or kids who don't want to be on top of one another. Kitchen and washer dryer a big plus. It is clean, comfortable, and well maintained. A few very minor downsides, loose floor tile here and there, routine wear and tear on furniture, and rooftop hot tub out of order (apparently for some time). The ski medallions also add significant value to this rental as lift tickets are not cheap.
The one potential major downside is the altitude. Mountain Village is located halfway up the mountain (as compared to the town of Telluride which is located at the base of the mountain) so you may be more likely to feel the effects of altitude sickness. It took me 24 hours to adjust and I could definitely feel the difference compared to the lower altitude in the town of Telluride.
Overall this a great quality rental in a great resort and would not hesitate to rent again.
The Fitness Center and Golden Door Spa just steps away has 25 yard lap pool, indoor-outdoor pool with water slide, saunas (3), hot tubs (5), steam rooms (3), pilates classes and more, Coffee shops, pubs and restaurants, fabulous apres ski on their expansive new decks.... are steps away. Additional charge for using the Peaks.
