Description

Sprawling estate by Elk's Pond in Mountain Village - the perfect home for a family get-together! This four bedroom home enjoys a high degree of privacy from a tranquil, alpine setting that is very convenient to both the slopes and the free Gondola that connects the towns of Telluride and Mountain Village.


Bedding: King, King, King, Two Queens


The home is accessed through the front door, tucked inside a welcoming alcove below the porte-cochere that graces the front of the home. Entering the front door and passing through the convenient mud room brings you to the Great Room, a welcoming space inspired by a Frank Lloyd Wright conversation pit. The Great Room has vaulted ceilings and large windows framing the mountain vistas. There is a wet bar, a massive gas fireplace adorned in stacked native stone and a plethora of comfortable seating. To the right of the Great Room is the formal Dining Room with seating for 10. Adjacent to the dining room is the openly designed kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and ample storage. The open floor plan extends beyond the kitchen to the media room, with large flat screen TV and seating for the entire group.


A door from the media room leads to the extensive back patio, a serene setting overlooking Elk Pond with ample deck furniture, a fire pit and a gas grill. The patio also has a luxurious private hot tub. A half bath and laundry room share the hallway that leads from the media room to the 2-car garage.


Above the Great Room is the master suite, featuring a king bed, flat screen TV, impressive mountain views and a luxurious master bath that features double sinks, steam shower and a large, jetted tub. A long hallway extends away from the Great Room to three more bedrooms. The first bedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom has two queen beds. These first two bedrooms share a full bath with shower that is accessed via the same hallway. At the end of the hall is the guest master suite with a king bed, full bath with shower/tub combo. All three of these bedrooms have flat screen TVs.


There is a separate guesthouse above the garage occupied year-round that shares no access to the main home.

Beautiful Home!

We absolutely loved staying at this home during our stay in Telluride. The backyard was breathtaking. We enjoyed the size of the kitchen as multiple people were cooking each meal. The oversized dining table was perfect to gather around. As the house only had half a roll of paper towels and one trash bag in the bin upon our arrival, and we could not find the items stocked anywhere, it was a nuisance that we had to go out and buy our own. That being said, we can't imagine staying anywhere else during our future visits with big groups!
Manager's Response: 
Thank you for your review of Founder's Estate; we enjoyed hosting you. Founder's Estate is absolutely gorgeous, located very centrally while still feeling very secluded. We apologize for the paper towels, we are always happy to restock anything the guest needs once we are told. We will look forward to having you back with us very soon! Best regards, Trevor, General Manager

Great property for large family

We had our family of nine stay at the Founders Estate for 7 nights. There was plenty of space, the kids had a separate family room to watch tv and play games, the kitchen was well stocked, and the backyard was fantastic! Lots of room for the kids to play and it backs up to Elk Pond. Staff was very responsive to small issues.
Manager's Response: 
Thank you for taking the time to review Founder's Estate! It was a pleasure to host you and your family. We are happy to hear that you all enjoyed the spaciousness and secludedness of staying there. We look forward to having you all back! Best regards, Trevor, General Manager

Our first time renting a home in Telluride and could not have been happier with the location and home. Close walk to Gondola with easy access to town. Home was clean and comfortable. The only needed accessories were pot holders and dishcloths. Everything else was perfect. Hope to rent again in the future.
Manager's Response: 
Thank you for taking the time to leave a thoughtful review of Founder's Estate. The layout of the home and the location are hard to beat! Looking forward to welcoming you back to Telluride. Katie, Guest Experience Manager

The Founder's Estate was a great house, but we encountered a couple of situations that ranged from minor to very disappointing. First of all, I think it should be noted that the home doesn't have air conditioning. It was extremely hot the week we were there, in the 90's, so it did get hot in the afternoon and the "mountain breezes" didn't cool the house off sufficiently. It was okay, but in case someone can't handle heat, it should be noted. The house does have stand alone fans that are helpful. Also, in a number of pictures an umbrella is shown for the patio table. There isn't one. Again, given the heat/sun that was present from noon on, we could not sit at the patio table since there was no shade. The patio was useless to us. We called the management company the first day and was told there was no umbrella. Considering what we were paying for this house, we were extremely disappointed that they didn't go buy an umbrella for us. We found out the owners had just been at the house the weekend before, so we felt they too could have gotten an umbrella for the house. VERY disappointed. It also states in the description that there is a caretaker on the premises at all times. There is in fact a very nice young couple living in the caretaker quarters above the garage, but are not the caretakers of the property, so don't knock on their door! Minor problems were that there were no wash clothes in the bathrooms and no wash rags in the kitchen, however a call to management remedied the situation.
Manager's Response: 
Hello, Thank you for taking the time to a leave a review of Founder's Estate. Here in the remote mountains of Telluride it will be hard to find a home with air conditioning. Open windows and shades closed during the day help keep homes cooled with the helps of fans to keep the air moving throughout. It happened to be a warm week in the low 80's at the peak of the day, but with lows in the upper 30's and low 40's typically allow for the homes to adjust and remain a reasonable temperature. The patio of the home is a great place for everyone to gather to enjoy the mountain air. Our regrets, however the patio umbrella broke during a wind storm shortly before your arrival. The owners have replaced the umbrella. As part of the remote and beautiful nature of Telluride, we simply do not have a store in town to purchase these large umbrellas for patios. The guest house is occupied year-round by a young couple, but they are not caretakers of the home. Per our description it is noted they do not have access to the main home, patio, or hot tub amenities. We do hope to have the chance to welcome you back to Telluride in the future. Will reach out directly to you for further discussion. Kind regards, Katie, Guest Experience Manager

Were provided with wrong wifi password and need to provide better instruction on using the heating system. It was not working properly in the upstairs bedroom. Service was prompt, but they were unable to fix the problem. Overall, the home was too hot and we were unable to cool it down except for opening doors.
Manager's Response: 
Thank you for taking the time to leave a thoughtful review of Founder's Estate. We appreciated your patience as we updated our recently changed wifi password information. We sincerely regret the house ran hot for you during your stay. We have added notes for future guests to keep the thermostats lower as this home receives a lot of direct high alpine sunlight. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to Telluride in the future. Best regards, Katie, Guest Experience Manager
