Logistics - This condo is located about 100 yards from the Telluride Gondola station and made managing 3 first-time skiers very, very easy. Additionally, grocery, restaurant and merchandise shopping is all an easy walk away - no need to coordinate schedules with bus or taxi services, and no long treks with the kiddos for dinner. Stress free and hassle free.
Accommodations - a fine condo on most every count. The multi-level design of the condo made for great vertical separation between kids and adults at bedtime and playtime. Plenty of storage, mud-room and privacy space for 2 families with kids. The hot tub was nice to have.
Minor gripes I'd make note of for the condo owners - the mattress in the master br leaves a lot to be desired, and the TV in the family room is ripe for an upgrade (even a $500 wal-mart Visio flat screen would be a huge improvement).
When returning to Telluride, we will definitely start our search for lodging with Riverwatch #4. Read more

The location of this condo is great. Short (less than one minute) walk to the gondola and lift #8. Short walk into town. Condo is clean and all appliances work. Hot tub on the river was nice. Read more

Convenient location downtown right on the river
Left on 08/07/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | Janet
We really enjoyed the stay at Riverwatch #4. Very attractively decorated and convenient to walk downtown. Not for people who have problems with stairs - it's actually on 4 levels! One thing that surprised us is that that the loft (which has a sleep sofa), queen bedroom and the bunk bed bedroom on top floor all have to share a bathroom. Otherwise, wonderful! Read more
Response from Telluride Alpine Lodging - 04/26/2012
Thank you for your review! It appeared that our description was incorrect; the queen bedroom has a full en suite bathroom with jetted tub, and the shared bathroom (for the loft and bunk room) has a steam shower. We are happy you enjoyed your stay, we hope to see you again soon!

Going home to Riverwatch #4 was like leaving the world behind.
Left on 07/29/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | Fairygodmothers Magic Fairy Realm
As I crossed the bridge to Riverwatch #4 the world changed immediately from crowds of laughter to peacful creekside solitude. Wonderful environment with hot tub, forest, creek, and all the comforts of home. If you've ever camped, this is the opposite experience. Luxurious home large enough for 9 (5 adults & 4 kids) without running into each other.. It was the "Best." Read more

Great place to stay. Good location, clean, great
hot tub. Kitchen is complete and had everything
that we needed. Would recommend. Only issue that
we had was the grill. It is advertised that there
is a gas grill so naturally we expect that it is
going to be operational and that there would be
propane to cook with. This was not the case.
After a long day of riding we come home and prepare
our food for 10 people only to find out that there
is no propane and we have to drive out of town to
get it. Not a hug deal but still a pain in the you
know what. Telluride alpine lodging would not
reimburse me which I thought was kind of a bummer
considering it clearly stated that there is a gas
grill in the description. Everything else was
excellent. Read more
Response from Telluride Alpine Lodging - 04/26/2012
Thank you for taking the time to review Riverwatch 4. Due to recent changes there is no longer a grill at this condo, and we apologize for the propane inconvenience. We hope to host you again in beautiful Telluride soon!

Very nice place to stay, great location and accommodations.
Need to fix a couple of things.
Foot light on stairway burned out. Kitchen under-counter light flashing,
needs new starter?
Should have cleaners vacuum carpet midweek or have a vacuum available.
Need to clearly mark location of your office, esp. because of construction in
Thank you. Would recommend to a friend and would stay again with Alpine
Lodging. Read more
Response from Telluride Alpine Lodging - 09/09/2009
Thank you for your review. We will make sure that housekeeping replaces the bulbs and we find out an explaination for the flickering from under the counter. During a midweek clean we usually do not vacuum however there is a vacuum in each and every unit just in case there is a mess to pick up.
We hope you you plan on calling TAL when booking for your next visit.
Great Location, Great Bathrooms
Left on 08/19/2009 for a stay in August 2009 | FoodyMom
Riverwatch #4 was in a very good location in Telluride. It was steps away from the free Gondola ride to the Mountain Village. It had plenty of room and can sleep up to 10 people. The dining room table only sat 4 people.??? All the bathrooms had all been updated to fantastic spa like comfort, but the living room carpet looked dirty. The views are of woods and the San Miguel River, but we found the deck to be uninviting (furniture not that great). The views from the other side of the condo are of the gondola ride zipping by on the hillside. Kitchen was updated to very nice standards. Could have used a t.v. in one of the other bedrooms for the kids. Master bedroom on lower floor was wonderful. It viewed the river and had an incredible bathroom. We didn't have a chance to use the hottub but it was available. All in all, it was a nice condo. Loved the fact it was in town yet by the river - could walk to everything. Read more
