Telluride is a nature lover’s paradise that’s home to year-round adventure.

Whether you’re hitting the slopes in winter hitting the trails in summer, Telluride is a charming little Colorado village surrounding by towering peaks. Once a bustling coal-mining town, today, it’s a great summer destination for hiking, mountain biking, ATVing, golfing, watersports, and more.

As the months grow cold and snow begins to fall, skiing enthusiasts flock to the San Juan Mountains to check out the killer powder. If downhill skiing or snowboarding isn’t your style, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, winter fly-fishing, sleigh rides, and more are on offer amongst the village’s snowy mountain peaks.

With so many outdoor activities to hit up during the day, there’s nothing more important than a good night’s rest. So we’re here with a rundown of the best airbnbs in Telluride — and the selection of rentals is amazing up on this mountain.
