I love this "Down Valley " area of Telluride. It is a 17 minutes drive up river to downtown Telluride. Our riverfront deck sits right on the San Miguel. If you leave your bedroom window open you can hear it all night long. Being at 7500 feet, Fall Creek, is also nicer if you want an easy altitude adjustment! The unit modernly decorated with 900 generous square feet for two persons.

The space
You will LOVE the sound of the river flowing by and echoing off the redrock cliffs. This is a brand new architectural remodel with a contemporary flair and gorgeous design. Double-sided fireplace, warm bathroom in-floor heat. Easy access to fishing, hiking, rafting, biking, and the splendor of the Telluride Region. Extensive mini kitchen included. Great Monthly Discounts! Ask About Them.

It is brand new, and steps to the San Miguel River. How to get there:

¼ Mile more brings you to a large dirt turnout with a telephone pole on the edge. The driveway to 22071 is right there.
Follow the U turn of the driveway to the last of the 3 houses- It has two painted garage doors with aspen leaves. Walk down the left side of the house to the Garden Apartment Entry. The lights will be on.

This is a private 900 sf garden apartment. Walk to the left of the house towards the river.

I will be available on my Cell 970 728-0600)

Quiet residential area, 17 minutes from downtown Telluride.

The town of Sawpit has gas and a small market.

Placerville also has a small market

There is local bus service to town during day hours. Look up Galloping Goose in Telluride. There are 5 buses daily and 3 on weekends.
Going to Telluride you can flag the bus (EMAIL HIDDEN)ing from Telluride, the bus will drop you off at Fall Creek Road, 1/4 mile NE of the house.

There is a Fresh Water Fish Tank in the living room. Please shut the light at with the remote aimed at the back right corner of the top at night. In the morning turn the light back on, and feed 1 pinch of fish food. Thank You . This way I will not have to enter your space.

"Down Valley" Sawpit and Fall Creek, are riverfront homes north on Highwy 145 from Telluride. We call it "down" because the elevvation is 7500' instead of 8750' in Telluride! It is a 17 minute river front drive to Telluride

I have lived in Telluride for over 25 years. My passions are horseback riding, skiing ,river rafting, ...anything with a little adrenaline.

As a host I like to meet my guests, but stay out of the way unless you need me.
