Manitou Lodge
Ranked #1 of 1 Telluride B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 January 2013

This was our first visit to Telluride, and we were delighted that we landed at the Manitou B&B. The room (we were in #5, with a futon in the living area and double bed in the loft) was comfortable, and we really appreciated both the mini-fridge in the room and having the kitchen/common space available. Coming in half-frozen from skiing or seeing the town, it was great to be able to fix a cup of hot tea or cocoa! Best of all, though, was the location -- only steps from the Gondola to Mountain Village, two blocks from the main shopping/restaurants street, and with the Riverside Trail (for walking or nordic skiing) just out the front door. The management was most helpful whenever we had questions and worked hard to make our stay pleasant.

We were pleasantly surprised by the charm and comfort of the Manitou Lodge -- especially at such a reasonable price. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. Breakfast was better than we might have expected. The couple managing the facility were extremely personable and solicitous of our satisfaction. We have every intention so staying at the Manitou when we next return to Telluride.

Stayed 2 days and had a wonderful time. Living room with loft bedroom was clean and nice. Nothing fancy. Balconies on both levels right on the river. Short walk to the middle of town and to the Gondola. Parking is a bit difficult. Continental Breakfast was the usual fare, except there was some nice fresh fruit. Bed was comfortable(really important to me). Bathroom was small. Managers were very nice.

Thank you for your nice review of the Manitou Lodge B&B. Most of the rooms are furnished with Tempurpedic mattresses which may have contributed to your good night's sleep. I hope you can stay with us again if you are ever back in Telluride.

This was my first time staying at the Manitou B & B....I have stayed at some of the pricier places in the past but needed a room with two beds as I was traveling with my sister. The location was nice....at the end of Fir Street accross the river on the River Trail. Loved it. Breakfast was just fine. I would stay at the Manitou again on an upper floor to get a better view of town.

We were very pleasantly surprised to find such a convenient and accessible place in Telluride for $99.00 that included a great breakfast, hot tub, and located on a lovely stream that we tubed down. It was only 2-3 blocks from the main street and a block from the free gondola to the top of the mountain. The manager was extremely helpful and my husband loved the hiking!

To begin, we liked the Manitou. Great price for an expensive town. I expect we'll be going back the next time we're in Telluride.
Rooms are comfortable for 4 as long as two are ok sharing a sofa bed.

I wouldn't call it a bed and breakfast any more than i would your average Comfort Inn. The dining are is small, with a table for 4, and breakfast is typical of chain motels. Plenty good enough as far as I'm concerned, but don't expect freshly cooked eggs with parsley and basil! More like bagels, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, etc. More than enough for me, certainly.

It can be hard to find at night if you haven't been there. We got in about 10, found our key combos as directed at the Aspen Street Inn, then drove to Fir Street (two blocks east if I recall correctly.) Turn right (south) on Fir Street, which dead ends at the creek. There are no streetlights and the parking is all posted "Permit only."
You ignore the signs for the time being, park as close as you can to the creek, then cross the small footbridge. The Lodge is just across the bridge. When you get into your room, you will find a parking permit on the wall, which you then take back to your car.
Simple really, unless it's late and you've been driving a looooong time.
