Perched atop a ridge in one of the most spectacular settings in the Rocky Mountains, one of the highest elevation homes in North America is also the height of privacy and exclusivity. Located at 12,200 feet beside the famous Gold Hill, the home overlooks the world class Telluride Ski and Golf Resort and the town of Mountain Village. Amenities include: steam shower, jacuzzi tub, pool table, sub zero appliances, ski-in/ski-out accommodations, log fireplaces, feather beds, the finest linens and spectacular views from all rooms.
Tempter House was built between 1996 and 2000 by David Eckley, an internationally recognized marathon runner who was a member of the Fila Sky Runner Team. He was undefeated in the Masters Class of the series for 3 years. This unique and luxurious five level house derives its name from its location above Tempter chute. Built by hand with the finest stone collected from the ski area, this exquisite home is an architectural wonder. Anne Eckley, David's mother, who is registered nationally at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, designed the house.
An evening at the Tempter House goes like this: Have dinner at a restaurant of your choice. We recommend Allred's Restaurant, located at the top of the gondola (elevation 10,554 ft.) where world class cuisine and fine wines are served at this award winning restaurant. After dinner, you and your beloved are whisked away by Ski Patrol on snowmobiles to the Tempter House. Shooting straight up the mountain, this night ride will be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. Once you arrive, Ski Patrol will be available by radio for your convenience, and then the rest of the night is yours!
