The Space

Best location on AirBnB: 1 block from the gondola and 3 from Town Park (and Bluegrass! now finally accepting reservations!), in legendary Telluride itself - because friends don't let friends stay in Mountain Village. NOTE: Not yet taking reservations beyond Sept 30, 2014.

2 blocks from Main Street and the real action in Telluride - the only place you want to have breakfast and spend your evenings.

Modern, furnished private room and bathroom (glass shower and jetted tub - no hot tub), on your own floor, in a condo with not only hard-to-find PARKING (see small fee below) but a washer/dryer.

* Right downstairs:
- liquor store
- marijuana dispensary
- brewpub
- French restaurant
- Telluride Arts and other galleries
* 1/2 block:
- grocery
- charcuterie and gourmet foods store
* 1 block:
- Gondola to skiing and Mountain Village
- River Trail that runs from outside town, through it, and to the end of the box canyon
- The Cosmopolitan restaurant
- Outdoor sports stores
* 1.5 blocks:
- Telluride's Main Street (aka Colorado Avenue) for all sorts of shopping, coffee shops, bars, karaoke (feel free to join me - I try to destroy the karaoke stage every Wednesday night)
* 4 blocks:
- Town Park, where major music festivals are held

The westward-facing deck lets you monitor ski or hiking conditions on the ski hill as well as watch our amazing sunsets! See my brief video of what you can see from here: (website hidden).

I'm the most informative and helpful tour guide you could have to Telluride! I am relatively new in Telluride, still gobsmacked by its natural splendor, and proud of its fascinating history. I love to share this amazing place with visitors, to see the awe and joy on their faces. :) I can give you suggestions, drive you there, or even guide you on a hike or on the ski slopes.

For people who don't want to spend much time indoors, this unit is a great choice. If you would like a kitchen and big-screen TV, then ask about my other listing for 4-5 people (2 queen beds, kitchen, living room, deck).

When available, I may be able to give you a parking permit or a place to park for an additional $10-17 per night depending on the season (saving you parking in Carhenge during the day and moving out at night -- or worse, feeding meters). NOTE: Prices may be higher for stays during popular festivals and during ski and snowboarding season. Just ask me.

Interaction with Guests

I judge the guests' interest in interaction and act accordingly. I've gone four-wheeling with guests, gone to see films at Mountain Films (and had guests treat me to mushrooms from the Mushroom Festival), and so on. I love to share the history of the area and all the best things to do on a short stay (or a budget). I've also left guests entirely alone, when that was their wish.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • First, let's talk location: amazing! Near Baked In Telluride and the Gondolas. Next, let's talk accommodations: comfortable bed, quiet location, good bathroom - very clean and usable. Last, let's talk host: Cameron is very communicative and helpful. He makes sure you get what you need and is very laid back and knowledgeable. He actually stopped an activity he was doing to help me when I needed something. Talk about service! I would definitely recommend the location and host to anyone. Telluride is a special place - and Cameron's location is special too.

  • I rented the room in Cameron's condo last week, and it was a wonderful experience, from start to finish. First and foremost, the location is AH-MAZING. You can slip on your ski or snowboard boots and walk to lift 8 in less than 5 minutes. There is also a full grocery store across the street, and you're only a couple of blocks from the main road that runs through Telluride. The bedroom and bathroom are both clean, comfortable, and inviting. He allows guests to use the washer/dryer free of charge, which was very useful. Lastly, Cameron made the entire process simple and straightforward. He was always quick to respond, friendly, and very informative. I will be sure to recommend his place to my friends/family!

  • The room was nice and in a great location. Cameron was great too. He lined up a parking spot for me and called in to welcome me.

  • Cameron was a gracious host, and you can't beat the location. We rented the downstairs bedroom, and the only thing to note is that the bedroom and the bathroom (which is heated and very nice) aren't connected - you have to walk through the small communal mud room, which is right in front of your bedroom door. Not quite as much privacy as I was expecting, but other than that, a nice find!

  • Cameron has a great place in the heart of Telluride. The room has a bit of a view and is very comfortable. Cameron was very friendly and had some good tips for things to check out while in town. If you are looking for an affordable place with easy access to skiing and all that Telluride has to offer, this is a great choice.

  • Clean place. Nice bathroom with heater. Couldn't get closer to the gondola for this price. Cameron also provided maps and books on local trails and sights. I liked staying in telluride much better than mountain village. I left behind my Telluride Brewery growler so maybe Cameron will loan that out in the future for refills.

  • My 2 night stay at Cameron's condo was a great! I hardly knew he was there! Balcony right outside the bedroom, with amazing views of the town of Telluride! My own personal bathroom!! He personally met up with me beings how I'm not very familiar with the Town of Telluride! The location is perfect, all within waking distance! I would for sure stay again! I highly recommend Cameron's condo! Great experience for my first time using airbnb!!!
