We really enjoyed our stay at the Russell Home. Great location, lovely views, clean and well taken care of home. Easy walk to Mountain Village and free bus dropped us off right at the driveway on bus route. There were only a few things missing in the home that were minor inconveniences. Propane tank was empty so we were unable to grill our dinner that night, ice maker did not have ice so no cold drinks, and the hot tube was not prewarmed so we had to wait a night to get into it. It would have been nice after a 9 hour drive to go straight to the hot tube without waiting for it to warm up. Again, just some minor details. We will definitely stay here again. Read more
Thanks so much for being our guest at The Russell Home and for leaving your informative, friendly review!
Couldn't get much closer to ski village

Beautiful home. Thank you so much!!
The weekend coverage for Telluride lodging was not very responsive but the weekday support was great.
The house itself did not have enough linens and most beds did not have actual pillow cases only covers.
The futon downstairs is falling apart and although the downstairs bath controls were repaired while we were there the shower control is still not 'right'.
Minor details but things you should know!!
Thanks again! Read more

Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts and experiences at The Russell Home. We hate to see reports on poor coverage form our guest services team as we are 24/7/365 organization with full staffing 7 days per week. Glad to see we were on top of issues during the week but your feedback is a great reminder that we must always stay diligent 7 days per week. We are performing full inventories this off-season, like we always do, so any shortcomings in the linen department will be remedied if they have not already. We are happy to report that the shower controls have been replaced and are now in full working order. Thanks again for the feedback and thanks for being our guest!

Killer house for the price
Left on 10/30/2013 for a stay in October 2013 | Jeff
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the Russell house. It is well appointed and very roomy. Some of the electronics were out of date. I think there was a cassette player in one of the rooms and some old Tv's. Seems it would be a great stay for Skiing in the winter. The down side was the location for us as it was so far from town and not very convenient to the things we wanted to do. Although if you are looking to get outside of the town to a quiet, picturesque setting this is it. Read more

Thanks for sharing your experiences at The Russell Home. This property has a long list of repeat guests, and you are correct, they are the types of travelers who prefer to be outside of town with more space and bigger view corridors. Thank you for the feedback on the electronics - we have shared that information with the owner and are working to upgrade. We are glad you found the home comfortable, and we look forward to locating the ideal place for you on your next visit.

We hit the cheapest rate of the year, which was good since there was two of us and our baby. This house could very comfortably fit many. The lower level is set up very nicely for people to have their own space. The hot tub is fabulous with excellent views.
Usually in rentals like these, if you forgot something like oil or garlic powder, you might find it in the cabinets. Not the case here. Bring all the ingredients you need. However, the grocery is not far away.
My only complaint is that we had surprise visit from the hot tub maintenance guy. I just wish we would have known to expect him. We had to take his word for it and let him in. It was just an interruption we didn't appreciate. Some yard work was done while we were there as well, also unexpected. The front door is all glass so anyone coming by can see right in.
All in all, it was a very nice place. Telluride is so beautiful! Read more

Thank you for sharing your experiences at The Russell Home. It is regretful the hot tub person disrupted your stay. We make every effort to coordinate service calls around guests' schedules but we obviously missed this one. Hopefully the tub was in perfect shape for your entire stay. The landscapers are on their own schedule generally and are much harder to coordinate visits with, but your feedback is taken to heart and we have discussed it as a firm. Please let us know when we can expect to welcome you back to beautiful Telluride!
Home away from home!
Left on 09/20/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | MarieA
This is our fourth time our group rented the Russell House for the Blues and Brews festival. We love the property so much that it's like our home away from home. It's big enough to fit 8 to 10 of us yet it feels warm and cozy. The hot tub is a huge plus for us. And the views are magnificent. Easy access off the highway and not too far from the town park make this property a gem. All the amenities in the kitchen and super clean throughout. Thanks to the owners for sharing their home with us! Read more

Well situated with beautiful views.
Left on 07/07/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | Papa Mike
The Russell House is a beautiful property and suited our needs very well. Basic information on the house itself and available transportation was lacking. A guide with things to do and see, and eating places they recommend would have been nice. Basic condiments like salt and pepper, sugar, etc. were also absent. The gas grille did not function due to lack of fuel, so we were unable to grille our hotdogs. This being said, it was a great house and we enjoyed our stay there immensely. These are little things, easily rectified, and did not detract from the overall experience. It worked well for our family group of thirteen. We would highly recommend the Russell House to others.

Papa Mike - thank you very much for taking the time to leave this review and share your experiences! Glad to see that your group enjoyed the home and your time in Telluride. Each of our properties contains an information book that contains a lot of the information you were looking for. The fact that the book was not present during your stay was obviously a miss on our part. The book has since been replaced and your feedback has served as a good reminder to our staff to ensure those info books are present prior to all arrivals. I am also happy to report that the spice rack and pantry have grown by a few more items. We always discard all of the perishables, and we do not purchase any food stuffs for the units, but most still maintain a good inventory of salt/pepper and other dry pantry items. And regarding the gas grill - if you ever run into such an issue again please let us know. We will re-fill the tank immediately. But again, certainly something we should have caught prior to your arrival. Another good reminder to strengthen our processes. Thanks again for staying with us and for leaving your remarks.

We are repeats at the Russell House, and will be back again in the future. This beautiful home has both an incomparable view and a welcomed peace from the urban life. Very comfortable with all the amenities, and Telluride alpine Lodging makes everything easy and effortless. The master bedroom has a morning view to die for. Read more

The Russell Home in Telluride was perfect for our family gathering which included two under 5 years old. I have never rented a vacation home that was so well provisioned. It was immaculate, comfortable and beautifully appointed. I would happily return given the chance. Read more

Fantastic Family Home in Incredible Location
Left on 05/29/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | Megan M.
This incredible vacation home had all the comforts of home and more. The four-bedroom home gave us plenty of room and the location is just minutes from Mountain Village and Telluride. The location on the golf course was quiet, relaxing and an ideal place for us to walk our dogs and enjoy quiet evenings on the deck. We had a fantastic time and we look forward to coming back next summer. Read more

Thorougly enjoyed our stay
Left on 01/02/2011 for a stay in December 2010 | CMP
The home was immaculate and well maintained. We hit the snow just right and our son and friends enjoyed the snow boarding. He came from Honduras on his first break from the Peace Corps and it was important to us that they enjoy themselves in the time allotted. The bedroom layout allowed or firends to have privacy with their new baby, but be close to the rest of us. At the same time we enjoyed ourselves on a long-time-coming vacation.
We could not have been more pleased with our stay. I met a new wife and mother, I caught up with my son and the changes in his life and spent some real time with my wife. Read more

We were in Telluride for the Fall colors, and were not disappointed, but the grandest treat was waking up to a view that cannot be excelled anywhere. The home was very comfortable and the service and check-in was professional. A stay in the the Russell house will make any stay in Telluride that much more.
Fantastic home in Mountain Village
Left on 08/02/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | Charlotte Sullivan
Our family had a great week at the Russell House. With 6 adults and 3 kids under 12, we were perfectly comfortable, and everyone had their own space. The only downside was the proximity to the Gondola in Mountain Village. But driving into Telluride and to the free Gondola garage was no big deal. We would book the Russell House in the future without a doubt! Read more

Thank you for your positive review!! The Russell house is great for large families looking for a little R&R while on vacation. We look forward to your next stay with us in beautiful Telluride!
Beautiful Views and Quiet Location
Left on 07/08/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | 2wicky
The Russell Home is conveniently situated about 1 mile from the gondola station and market. You have beautiful mountain views throughout the main living area. The home was very clean and well equipped for cooking for our group of 6. Housekeeping stopped in on our 3rd day to take out the garbage and replenish the towels. This is a lovely location, and we will definitely plan on returning.
The only negative comments we had are that a few of the mattresses will need to be changed out soon--they have seen some wear, and that the fireplace still is out of order.
Wonderfully satisifying for all.

Beautiful home, well cared for, well appointed and very clean. Totally ready for any family. The only drawback was limited parking. We were able to get 4 cars in the driveway and garage, so what more can one ask really. :0)
