Like something out of a fairy tale, this sprawling estate is a magical and unforgettable escape to the Rocky Mountains. Located on an idyllic, secluded four-acre lot, Founder’s Retreat includes a private pond with a burbling mountain stream. With multiple living spaces and three spacious bedrooms, there’s room for everyone in your group to spread out and truly relax. Stone archways and a quaint bridge over the stream add to the whimsical feel. And even with all this magnificent privacy and peace, you’ll still be within walking distance of Village Core and gondola and have seamless ski access via the Village Bypass ski run.

A Secluded Rocky Mountain Haven

The main living area is as spacious and grand as a luxury hotel lobby— with a soaring cathedral ceiling built from rustic wood beams. The crackling fireplace is set into a wall made entirely from stone, while the adjacent wall of glass looks out over the serene, magnificent grounds. A chocolate brown leather sofa and multiple armchairs face the fireplace and create relaxed yet elegant sitting areas. A chessboard and armchairs sit near the large wall of windows.

In the cozy den, another leather sofa faces the fireplace. With wood beam detail, views of the scenic grounds, and a carved, arched wooden doorway, the den creates a delightful spot to kick back with a glass of wine and a great book. Nearby, a full bar with gleaming brass detail is equipped to handle any cocktail order with style.

A Warm and Inviting Kitchen

In the kitchen, knotty wood cabinets— some with glass panel detail— create a space that’s warm and inviting. A gas range is topped with a custom vent hood and faces the large island, complete with woven baskets for storage.

A breakfast table for six is surrounded by arched windows that look out over the grounds and the forest beyond. Relax here in the mornings with a steaming mug of coffee and watch the deer that romp through the trees. The formal dining space has a table for eight people illuminated by a stunning antler-inspired chandelier.

A Dramatic Primary Suite

Down the arched hall, the spacious primary suite has a luxurious king-size bed set against an upholstered headboard and facing a stone-hearth fireplace. The dramatic ceilings continue here with vaulted wood beams fanned out over the bay window and seating area. The ensuite bathroom has warm, wood plank floors and a soaking tub set into a natural wood base— facing a large window with scenic forest views. It’s the perfect spot to soothe sore muscles after a long day on the slopes.

Another large bedroom has two twin-size beds and a fun hangout spot for the kids— complete with work table and flatscreen television. The third bedroom doubles as a private office space— with a desk and a leather sofabed. Both of these bedrooms create ideal spaces to complete some remote work or school projects.

An Idyllic Park Setting

When you’re ready to explore, head outside to your own private, park-like setting. Feel the hush of the forest and hear the fresh mountain breeze whispering through the pines. A stream leads the way to the sparkling pond, and dear gallop through the trees. Want to hit the slopes? The Village Bypass ski run is right around the corner. And while the Village core and gondola are within walking distance, you can also take a quick drive into historic downtown Telluride for delicious dining and eclectic shopping. Founder’s Retreat is your picture-perfect Rocky Mountain holiday home.
