the pool needs umbrellasGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I chose to stay at the Bear Creek Lodge for our 6 year wedding anniversary. Because of the more private location and the reasonable rates, we chose this lodge over others. After easily granting us an early check-in, we discovered a spacious, one-bedroom condo that was warm, comfortable, and inviting. The shuttle service was prompt and […] easy to use, although we soon discovered that walking to the gondola and to Mountain Village is just as easy. The only downside was that there were several families using the pool and hot tubs throughout our stay, and our room was in the midst of all of the noise. When I forgot a dress in the bedroom closet, staff searched for it and sent it back promptly. Overall, we had a fabulous stay and can't wait to stay again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Here for family vacation with her daughters. Room was clean and roomy with very nice kitchen. The service was excellent, we had an issue in the condo that they took care of immediately. Loved the staff. Parking was very difficult, not enough for the number of rooms. The beds were also very uncomfortable. The king bed in the room was lumpy and very soft. […] The pullout bed for our daughters was very uncomfortable and sagged to the middle. These areas would need to be improved for us to stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just a hop & a skip to the gondola to Telluride"
Overall, it's a great location close to the gondola which connects to Telluride hiking trails and shopping. Staff at Bear Creek is friendly and quick to respond to requests for service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Extra friendly staff and great location"
While not in the core of Mountain Village, the shuttle service made it extremely easy to get anywhere we needed to go. The staff at Bear Creek Lodge were extra special and were very helpful during our stay. We had a family of 4 and got a 1 bedroom. The living and kitchen areas were well sized, but for 4 people (kids of both genders) I think we will […] go with a 2 bdrm next time. The funicular was great to take you right to the lower part of village bypass off of the lift 4 run where you can ski down to the bottom. We liked the ping pong table and the work out facilities on site. We had a great time here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Bear creek lodge is an old building but still very good. The rooms are larger than other condos. It is a ski in ski out facility if the funicular works. They have a great shuttle system. The staff is helpful but the rooms don't get cleaned everyday which is not unusual for a ski condo. Our condo had a full kitchen which was great with kids. For the […] area this condo is priced the best. You won't go wrong ..... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice stay near Telluride"
The room/condo was gorgeous. However, the bathrooms were small and had no counter space. There were not any full length mirrors either which made getting ready very difficult. The staff seemed confused and bored, but we didn't have to interact with them much after checking in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Terrific Vacation Location"
My husband and I just celebrated our 1 year anniversary in Telluride and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bear Creek Lodge! Our 1 bedroom condo was very clean, spacious and more than we could have hoped for with a full sized kitchen, washer/dryer, jetted tub, comfy king sized bed and fireplace. The lodge itself has quite the array of fun amenities […] too including a heated pool, 3 hot tubs, sauna, fitness room with play area for the kiddos, complimentary coffee and cookies as well as DVD's that you can check out. It is also conveniently located within walking distance to the local grocery store and free gondolas. If you would rather not walk, they also have free shuttle service. We would both highly recommend the Bear Creek Lodge to anyone vacationing in the Telluride area!!! :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay!"
My husband and I were very excited when we walked into our room. It was more then we expected and was one of the nicest place we've every stayed at. It wasn't just a room it was a condo, fully furnished with everything we need from a fully furnished kitchen, comfortable furniture, amazing jetted tub, fireplace, and a beautiful view! We are planning […] on returning every Fall and we'll invite friends and family to join us next time. The staff was amazing, if we needed something they were on it. It's worth every penny we paid. Can't wait until next year. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Quick night away"
Nice placeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed our stay. The unit itself was nice and well kept, a bit dusty. The staff was helpfull and very nice. The pool and hot tub were clean. The views great. Easy access to the gondola to Telluride, Great vacation would recomend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed at the Bear Creek Lodge for three nights late in September. we love Telluride, but it can get very pricey fast, so we were happy to find the lodge, which was rated well, for a good price. That being said, we were a little wary due to it being a timeshare, we have had awful experiences with them in the past. Check in went well, staff was pleasing […] and quick to point out amenities and town highlights. First impression of the room was good, relatively clean, nice layout, large kitchen set up for six, even though you could not sleep more than four. The king bed was very hard and was like sleeping on springs. Every slight movement sent the bed bouncing making for absolutely horrible sleeping conditions. The pillows were terrible as well. Small, flat, no loft and lumpy were there was stuffing. They are the type that costs $5 but have been used for many years.The three nights there were some of the worst sleeping I have had in a long time. Additionally there was an old cloth chair in the living room which was worn out and smelled. I did not go near it. I gave an overall terrible rating because I use a room for primarily sleeping, which was elusive here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic place to stay in Teluride."
Everything was wonderful, facilities, pools, parking, the suite we stayed in was awesome, fully featured, and extremely clean. The only thing that I can think of to gripe about is the mattresses were very soft and we like firm matresses so they weren't comfortable to us but that's not surprising. Everything else was fantastic and very reasonably pr […] iced. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Everything was above my expectations"
Had a great experience. Loved the service and accommodationsGenuine Expedia guest review
Good time altho we did not have correct beds that we requested. After check in we had to move to different room that had correct size beds. One bedroom did not have comforter on bed the entire stay. Staff was helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is AMAZING! Our room was more than I could have imagined. It was super clean and stocked with everything we could ever need on our vacation. The staff at Bear Creek Lodge was very friendly and accommodating. My daughter cried when it was time to go. My kids loved it here and were very impressed also. We can't wait to go back!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great get-away spot!"
Loved our place at the Bear Creek Lodge! Location to the gondola was perfect, room for the entire family, and hospitality was very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Front desk and manager were incredibly wonderful in helping us find an alternative place to stay our first night when we were unable to make it due to a natural disaster. The place itself is gorgeous with the only drawbacks being the inconvenient parking system and the hard bed and pillows after having spent hours on the road.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice condo with nice amenities. Friendly service and convenient location....very close to market and gondola into Mountain Village which you can then take down to town of Telluride. Great summer retreat and would be awesome ski rental!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our Family Vacation"
We were very pleased with the hotel. The kitchen was terrific because they had everything to cook with and eat with and clean with. The only thing I could complain about was the outside hot tub wasn't working on one of the nights we were there. Otherwise, it was perfect. Very enjoyable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice place, nice price"
A bedroom, kitchen, dining room, living room - very much like home - very nice - and a good price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Super friendly and accommodating staff! Big kitchen and very spacious 2 bedroom unit. Needed more seating in family room area for TV viewing. Outdoor pool is small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for the family"
great hotel, I enjoyed staying in the mountain village rather than in town, the free gondola was very convenient. I would totally stay at this hotel again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Place to stay in Telluride"
We loved the Bear Creek Lodge, it is located above the town of Telluride. You take the shuttle over to the village and can ride the gondola up and down into town. The location is great they have a beautiful pool. The staff are so friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent condo in great location with mtn. views"
Our stay at the Bear Creek Lodge was excellent. The only drawbacks were the lack of Internet connectivity from our condo - I had to go to the lobby to get connected - and the fact that the bedroom faced east. My wife has trouble sleeping and the early sun was therefore a problem. The condo was very nice, the view of the mountains from our deck was spectacular, […] and I was able to run down the hill to the Town Hall and the condo in just a couple of minutes - running back up the hill took longer, given the steepness of the road and the 10,000+ foot elevation. The hotel staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. The next time we visit Telluride - my wife's sister and family live in the area - we will definitely try to book a reservation at the Bear Creek Lodge. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great in the off season"
Luxurious, spacious rooms at a great price in the off season. Stayed here two weeks out of the last four for business. But seriously, no housekeeping over four days each time? I guess that's the tradeoff for the great price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The minute we drove up we were treated like family. The foom exceeded out expectations. The spa, pool and suttle service was awsome.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bear Creek Lodge in Telluride"
Each room is decorated different according to owner. Our carpet was filthy dirty and the linens were old and stained. The people that worked at the hotel were very nice but when more trash bags or toilet paper were requested ( because room cleaning is not included) one bag or one roll at a time was delivered. Our TV was so small it was difficult to […] see across the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This is a lovely facility. We stayed in room 112 which was a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit. The master suite is exceptional with a huge well designed bathroom that makes it very easy for two people to get ready. The kitchen is large with nice appliances. There is a long bar with bar stools as well as a dining room table that seats 6. We were two couples spending three nights here and it easily met all our needs. Condo staff were extremely helpful. There is a shuttle service that will take you anywhere in the Mountain Village. It operates on demand and we rarely waited even 5 minutes after making a request. Top notch fitness room with many types of equipment and free weights.
"It really depends on what are you getting"
09/03/14 MXB48 Arvada, Colorado
Bear Creek Lodge is a timeshare facility. You can get entire 'villa' (2 bedrooms, great room, kitchen), or you can get a lock-off unit. Given the architecture, you can get a single 'hotel' like room, which (in case of Bear Creek) is the Master Bedroom + Master Bath, OR you can get something like 'junior suite', where you get the living room, kitchen and the SECOND bedroom (often 2 twin beds in a confined space). Hence, our 'hotel' room (#110B) had an exceptional bathroom (big and fancy), king bed, and closet - but NOTHING else. I found it insulting not having a single chair (or small table) in the unit. If the lodge is offering the unit on the market, they should assure there are the basic necessities - even Motel 6 knows better. The staff was helpfull, they added a mini-fridge ($20/week) and a coffe maker, but they could do nothing about missing furniture or the 19" TV belonging to the museum - hence my 3 star rating. That said, the lodge, albeit aging, is a 4-5 star property in a 5++ star environment, and (unlike the nearby Mountain Lodge) you get a free parking. It is within walking distance to gondola and a convenient store. Getting to the town (Telluride) is about 30 min gondola ride (and you do not have to worry about parking). We may have been lucky, but our stay was quiet, including people using the pool, whirlpool and pickininck area. As hikers, we have not spent too much time in the lodge - we have been coming to Telluride for years to enjoy the beaty of this area.
"Not worth it!!"
08/25/14 Abbiejoan721 Moab, Utah
Whenever I visit Telluride, I usually look for a nice vacation rental by owner. I decided to give this lodge a try based on others reviews. Big mistake! While the lodge looks nice, once we were in our rooms, it was a different story. We had reserved a 2 bedroom with 2 twin beds and a king bed. We had 2 kings instead. The fireplace did not work. The bathtub drain did not. The dishwasher did not work. The front burner on the stove did not work. The wireless internet did not work either. The last night we were there, my toddler was having troubles sleeping, so her Dad decided to let her share the bed with me and slept on the pullout sofa. SO UNCOMFORTABLE!! Bear Creek Lodge needs to rethink their mattress choice. It was an old spiral spring mattress that when you tried to lay on it, it was nothing but springs digging into your back. I know that pullouts are usually not comfortable, but this was TERRIBLE. Bear Creek Lodge had 2 saving graces. The area that surrounds it is beautiful! It is hard to stay upset when surrounded by that environment. The staff is very friendly. Even though I was upset I spent all of my mornings at Bear Creek Lodge with maintenance repair in the room, he was very friendly. Needless to say, I will NOT be staying there again and I wouldn't recommend it either. There are far better choices in Mountain Village and Telluride.
"Wonderful family spot!"
08/23/14 MYGOODLIFE Texas
This is a wonderful place to stay with family or a couple. The prices in off season are very reasonable for the quality of the property. We stayed in #108 which was pet friendly as we were traveling with our pups. This unit was very well appointed in the kitchen and furnishings. There are frills on the patio for guests and a big fireplace with marshmallow holders for some mores! There are two hot tubs and a lovely pool. The staff at the lodge was very helpful. The have a shuttle that will take you to and from the gondola or it is a short walk down to gondola and grocery store. Definitely would go back!
"Great Stay at the Bear!"
Bear Creek Lodge was a great stay. The staff was very nice and helpful. We stayed in room 309A, the bigger the number the closer to the mountains, 312, I think, was the closest to the mountains. The parking lot is also on that end but a small price to pay for stunning views. The room itself had a big living room. The balcony is not big enough to put chairs on but you can fit 4 people on it to stand on, the only balconies to fit chairs are on the 4th floor. The bedroom was ok, the bed was a little soft and the bathroom a little small. We put the garbage under the bathroom sink and that helped. The kitchen has everything from pans, silverware, plates…everything you need. Pieces of advice…we came thru Cortez and I recommend bringing a cooler and shopping at Walmart to pick up groceries. The markets are in Mountain Village and Telluride are very expensive. The free gondola is only a half mile away and easy to walk to and the market is right next to the gondola. We took the gondola into the Mountain Village core which is a complex of many lodges and restaurants. The gondola ride to the core is 5 minutes. Then we connected to the free gondola that takes you into downtown telluride. You really don’t need to be driving around. I also played golf at the Telluride Golf Club only 5 minute drive from the lodge, it’s the only one within an hour of Telluride so they charge a premium but the scenery is stunning and I look forward to playing there again. All and all Bear Creek is a great place to stay we would definitely stay here again.
"1 bedroom condo was super roomy"
08/14/14 momof2wildchilds Erie, Colorado
We booked this online at Hotels.com once we got a wedding invite for dear friends and knew we wanted to bring our dog along. Telluride is the perfect place to bring a large dog and feel right at home. The Bear Creek Lodge was assigned to us by the Mountainside Inn. It worked out perfectly since the shuttle driver would take us to the gondola any time we wanted to venture on the mountain or in town. It was a perfect weekend. Our 8 and 10 yr old children sleep on the sleeper sofa but found it too springy so the second and third nights we just put the mattress on the floor of the living room area. That worked like a charm. We enjoyed having the kitchen for breakfast and quick meals. We also used our washing machine since my son got his white shirt dirty at the rehearsal dinner and needed it for the wedding the following day. We will definitely stay at the property again. The pool and fire pit were nice extras. We did not use the BBQ but they were large and would have been easy to cook at.
"Peaceful & Quiet"
07/29/14 RvZpretoria London, United Kingdom
Although we were put in a dark room with no view of the mountains we stayed an extra night because of the location, amenities and friendly staff. Telluride mountain village is beautiful and have it's own village shop to buy food. We made use of the barbeque facilities at the hotel. Perfect taking and early morning swim and session in the very hot tub at 8am. The free shuttle service to the Gondola is a bonus. The bathroom with spa bath and big shower a huge plus. The place to go to get away from everything with all the luxury. Coffee in the lounge is great! The only gripe is barbeque is dirty and barbeque utensils very dirty.
"Amazing Experience in a Beautiful Town"
07/23/14 Tiffany H Plymouth, New Hampshire
This experience was the perfect place to stay with my family. The shuttle service made access to gondolas incredibly easy and the funicular was even better for ski in/ski out access. The staff was super friendly and make great recommendations for restaurants. Also, the rooms are HUGE! You are in your own personal Condo that is fully furnished in every single way! Stay here. Be Happy. Smile!
"Way to stay in Telluride"
06/29/14 Klempit CT
We rented a one-bedroom condo (unit 305A, main level, with kitchen and living room) in June 2014. It's a very large and comfortable space that has easy access to the main lodge and parking. The service offered by Misha and Heather (concierge/front desk) was terrific; they attended to our few but important requests quickly and effectively (and big smiles). Drivers Joe and Justin made the stay even more luxe with rides to Mountain Village on-demand. Our unit was spacious and a great value. We cooked two dinners in the full kitchen and recommend this unit over a standard "hotel room" if you're going to be here more than a couple of nights (we like to prepare our own meals about half the time to maintain some sense of dietary control). The lodge has great facilities including BBQ, pool, hot tub and gym.

We rented a 2 bedroom condo for 5 nights . I was worried it might not look as good as the pictures online but I was pleasantly surprised...it was even nicer ! All the staff from the front desk to drivers were some of the nicest people I have ever met .We had some problem with the wireless and were sent help right away and he even checked back with us the next day ... I loved the funicular to take us to the slopes or walk into town ...the hot tubs and pool along with exercise room were beautiful. Did I mention that a driver would take us or pick us up in Mountain Village with just a phone call ? We could not ask for better service ; I would highly recommend Bear Creek Lodge and hope to stay there again soon !
