Paradise Found in Telluride, Colorado

Jul 25, 2016

The Auberge Residences at Element 52 is a mountain haven you’ll want to call home.

Picture a place where all things wonderful reside in a secluded box canyon. Now imagine the San Juan Mountains above, seemingly endless open sky, and forests of aspen and pine. Add the charm of an old mining town – with Victorian cottages, chic boutiques, inviting coffeehouses, and an array of outdoor activities – and you’ve got Telluride. This National Historic Landmark town speaks to the West’s pioneer spirit with the added promise of boundless pleasure.

In this spirit, Auberge Resorts has upped the ante by creating treasure of a different kind – The Auberge Residences at Element 52. This stunning property is a hamlet within a village nestled between the slopes of Telluride and the San Miguel River. Moreover, the property features perfectly appointed residences in which every need is attended to, so that your only directive is to step outside and enjoy everything the breathtaking environment has to offer.

True to the Auberge tradition, the 33 two- to five- bedroom residences are uniquely decorated to reflect the area’s natural beauty as well as local, Western design cues. Native stone and ironwork combine with high ceilings, walnut floors, and expansive picture windows to create a rugged elegance that’s both earthy and cozy – a place where either cowboy boots or cashmere slippers make sense. When talking Telluride Resorts, there is nothing like Element 52!

When nature in the form of, say, fresh snow, prevails to lure you outside, Element 52’s ski valet will store your equipment as well as keep boards and skis tuned and boots warm. If you’d rather not bring your equipment from home, the concierge will arrange for top-of-the-line rentals. Forget your sunscreen or lip balm? They’ve got that covered, too. Basically, all you need to do is step into the property’s private funicular and exit trailside. Element 52 is the only luxury ski-in/ski-out accommodation in town.

Cross-country skiers and snow-showers can head for the Nordic Center in town or nearby Trout Lake for trails and wilderness, respectively.

The warmer months in Telluride are equally action-packed, with fishing, hiking, mountain biking, golf, tennis, river rafting (all can be arranged through Element 52’s year-round concierge), and a host of festivals, from Bluegrass to Film.

Beyond transcendent recreation, relaxation is the other key component at Element 52. And sometimes that means just lounging by your fireplace or soothing your muscles in one of the property’s two large outdoor soaking pools. At any time, luxuriate and rejuvenate at the on-site spa with one of the many treatments, say an Auberge at Altitude Massage or a Deep Forest Exfoliation. Afterward, refuel with a dinner prepared in your residence’s state-of-the-art kitchen or have the concierge order something in from one of the wonderful local restaurants. If you’re up for dining out, take the short walk into town, where you can choose from New American dishes, such as seared sesame-crusted tuna, at the lively 221 South Oak, or delicious filet mignon at the elegant Chop House. Later, as you hit the plush bed and stare out at the vast night sky from your picturesque window, you’ll understand the meaning of paradise all wrapped up in a magical Colorado canyon. Take a look at what all our Telluride luxury resort has to offer today!
