Scout tips

  • Bear Creek Lodge offers 'Lock-Off' hotel rooms which are a partitioned off section of full condos. These rooms therefore share a bit of noise with the condo guests.
  • There is no daily housekeeping service here
  • The condos are quite spacious and offer flexible bedding (inc. split kings).
  • The rooms location on a walkway means there is some noise with foot traffic.


Bear Creek Lodge offers guests a wide range of accommodation options in the outskirts of the Mountain Village area of Telluride. With everything from simple 'Lock-Off' hotel rooms to large four-bedroom condos, Bear Creek suits couples, families and ski groups alike.

The hotel rooms are the most basic at Bear Creek Lodge and simply include a king or twin beds and an ensuite bathroom with a jetted tub and separate shower. The condos, however, are well-equipped with full kitchens and breakfast bar, comfortable lounges (with gas fireplaces), bathrooms with jetted tub(s), robes, hair dryers and toiletries, and some even feature in-room washer/dryers. The lounges are spacious, and offer an additional queen sleeper sofa for extra guests. The larger condos are located on the upper floors and boast wonderful vaulted ceilings and better views. Due to its forested location, most of the views are of the surrounding forest, however this also makes for a quieter condo complex. The rooms area located on a walkway or path, so the lounge and bedrooms often simply overlook this and as it is a major thoroughfare for most of the nearby rooms, Scout recommends keeping your blinds closed for better privacy.

Regardless of which accommodation you choose, you will have access to the on-site facilities which include a heated pool, hot tub, exercise room, a fire pit and heated boot and ski lockers. There is even a games room with a Fussball table, games, arts and crafts equipment and a Wii which is great for the kids. Although Bear Creek Lodge doesn't exactly have ski-in, ski-out access, however there is a funicular located a few steps away from the condos to take you directly down to the slopes (you pop out halfway down the Village Bypass run). The free shuttle service can also nip you down to the gondola station in minutes which can then transport you around the whole Telluride region. Therefore there is minimal effort required whether you are reaching the village or the ski slopes. 

Bear Creek Lodge is a fantastic mid-range Telluride lodging option for families, particularly those who seek self-catered accommodation on the mountain and are a bit more independent. There is easy access to and from the slopes each day, plus convenient free shuttle service.

Who should stay here
