Telluride Horror Film Festival – Where to Stay?

October is right around the next corner, and we’ve got something really special waiting for you in the mountain town of Telluride, Colorado. It’s traditionally the spookiest month of the year with Halloween on everyone’s mind, and you’re invited to come indulge in an entertaining spooky experience at the 9th annual Telluride Horror Film Festival, which has been scheduled for Oct. 12-14 at popular venues throughout the town. There are some 70 films to view as well as events that include a very cool ice scream social, a delicious pig roast, creepy campfire tales around the bonfire, a killer karaoke party, horror trivia games and an exciting closing party. Special activities begin before the designated dates and continue the day after, so be sure to plan your stay for a little longer. You can easily spend an entire week or more enjoying the festival and all that Telluride has to offer during the fall months and still be home in plenty of time to take in your local Halloween celebrations. These are just a few of our Telluride vacation rentals that are located near the festivities and are still available at this writing.
