Relax with some magnificent views of Telluride and the surrounding area in the rooftop hot tub, which can be reserved for 30 or 60 minutes at a time.
The Peaks Indoor/Outdoor Pool and Waterslide
Guests of the Inn have access to the indoor/outdoor pool and waterslide at The Peaks Resort & Spa, which is just under half a mile away.
Just beyond the Inn is Sunset Plaza, where families will often find free concerts playing throughout the summer months.

Planning & Tips
All About the Extras
Ski Valet and Boot Lounge
The Inn at Lost Creek knows what a process skiing can be -- that's why it decided to premier the Ski Valet and Boot Lounge in 2015. Located right off the lobby, you and your family can enjoy a hot beverage and snack as you gear up for the day. No need to carry your skis in and out, either -- the staff will do that for you!
The Art of Smart Timing
Telluride is a four-season vacation destination. The best time to go, in our opinion, is during ski season and the summer months, when rates are usually lower. However, please keep in mind that Telluride Ski Resort is only open from just after Thanksgiving until the first week of April.
Montrose Regional Airport is an hour and a half away. We recommend hitching a ride with Telluride Express to the Chondola, which will take you right to the center of Mountain Village. From there, it's a quick walk to the Inn.
Families can kiss cars goodbye during their visit to Telluride. Mountain Village is completely walkable, and a quick ride on the free gondola takes families to Allred's and town.
For Mom and Dad
Spa at The Peaks
Guests at the Inn have access to the Peaks Spa. That's right, mom and dad -- treat yourselves to some invigorating treatments after a long day of golfing, skiing, and exploring. Amenities include multiple dry saunas; a lap pool; massage, aesthetic, and body therapy; and an oxygen inhalation lounge (which, believe it or not, you might benefit from at that high Telluride altitude).
