Overview

Big city style in a cozy little gem, with hot and cold alfresco plunge pools in prime Telluride

The Look

Whether you’ve come for the skiing or the summer sports and festivals, the Lumiere is a tiny gem of a place that expertly walks the line between luxury and casual mountain style, quirk and class. With only 11 guestrooms and 18 larger one- to four-bedroom residences, it marries an intimate, romantic feel with Telluride’s bustling social scene.

Bed & Bath

The decor mixes rich, convivial red, orange and chestnut with creamy walls and huge windows. Rich textures, from Egyptian cotton linens to velvety throw pillows and microsuede headboards, invite lounging. In-room kitchen facilities with Subzero mini-fridges, microwaves and coffeemakers are handy, as there’s no restaurant and only a small room service menu.

Beyond

The “front desk” is nothing more than one of the wise concierges sitting at a small table by the fire. But don’t let that fool you: They’re endlessly knowledgeable and helpful. Head to The Little Bar for tapas and handcrafted cocktails during happy hour, then for dinner from 5-8pm Wednesday through Sunday. The patio outside Little Bar — which has a warm dipping pool, a cold plunge pool and a hot tub — is small but has majestic mountain views. In the summer it plays host to live music.

In the Area

Making your resort base in Mountain Village means a (free) gondola ride down to the town of Telluride to see the historic “painted lady” houses and magnificent Victorian buildings, including the New Sheridan Hotel and Chop House, which dates from the silver boom at the turn of the last century. The main drag of eateries and shops is here too, to say nothing of the site of the first bank Butch Cassidy ever robbed (call local guide Ashley Boling at 970-728-6639 for a Wild West tour). Sample the mountain’s best restaurants: lunch at the outdoor bistro Bon Vivant and dinner at the 11,966-feet-high Alpino Vino Italian restaurant, or at the Tomboy Tavern gastropub in the village. Summer in Telluride means festivals almost every weekend from May to October, with food, drink and music events featuring heavily alongside the growing film festival. Winter, of course, means skiing, skiing and more skiing.

This was above and beyond our expectations for our family ski trip. We loved the beautiful decor and all of the amenities. We will definitely be back! Everything is within a short walk or Gondola 🚠 ride, we did not need a card once. We even had grocery’s delivered. Thanks for making our trip memorable.

Lovely Accomodation

Great location, lovely rooms, very nice place to stay. The hotel is right on the snow so the ski valet was handy. Good location , easy to walk to shops and town. Had an issue with sheets not clean when we arrived, but otherwise everything was great.

The best place to stay in Telluride
Reviewed 4 months ago

Quality accommodations with outstanding service. The service was friendly and the people made us feel that the our comforts were very important. The unit was fresh and clean. Front desk took care of making restaurant reservations. The ski valet delivered our skis to the slopes and returned them in the evening for storage.

What VAC should be!
Reviewed 4 months ago

Right from a telephone call a day prior to arrival, the staff of this establishment is engaged in guest service. It's easy to tell the staff likes what they do. The location gives you almost instant access to the slopes. Everything about the staff & facility says VACATION. You'll be glad you made the choice to book here.

We’d had a couple of recommendations for Lumiere - expectations were high and they were exceeded. Our room was beautifully appointed, lots of space, great kitchen, and loved the steam shower. Staff were super helpful and we were very appreciative of the altitude remedies and the nightly supply of water.

Lumiere is in a great location for skiing and accessing restaurants on mountain village or Telluride.

I’ve skied all over Colorado and Canada - Lumiere without doubt is the best accommodation we’ve had for skiing

Ski in/ski out was great - the ski valet was my highlight. Getting in and out of ski boots was such a treat. John gave us tips each day on where to ski together with a daily weather report. The bar and restaurant suggestions were great.
