At a Glance

Ideal for skiers who want to coast in from the slopes, shed layers in front of a roaring fire and defrost with a craft beer at the pub next door, the Inn at Lost Creek is a simple and convenient home base with that familiar ski-lodge warmth.

  • Brilliant western sunsets savored from the rooftop hot tub


The Inn at Lost Creek, located next to the gondola overlooking Sunset Plaza, maintains the rustic charm it’s had since opening in 1998. Nearly all the thirty-two accommodations offer separate bedrooms, living areas and fireplaces. All of them have laundry facilities and either full kitchens or small kitchenettes. The property has a romantic European chalet feel, with lots of wood and stone, wrought-iron beds and patchwork quilts. Rooms on the Sunset Plaza side of the hotel have the best views of the mountain peaks. Though spa junkies and lap-swimmers will be happier at Hotel Madeline or The Peaks, the inn is a great choice for summer golfers, who receive preferred tee times and special discounts at the Telluride Golf Club. There is a small fitness room on property, and the hot tubs on the roof deck, strategically positioned on both the sunset and sunrise sides of the building, can be privately reserved. Breakfast is served at the inn’s restaurant, Siam’s Talay Grille, which features Asian seafood and tapas by the team behind local favorite Siam in Telluride. However, for children craving more predictable American fare, Crazy Elk Pizza and Tomboy Tavern are also right downstairs.

Who Should Stay

Skiers love the ski-in/ski-out access, and golfers get extra perks at this property.
