The Observatory is AMAZING! We got married on June 15th here!
This is a perfect location for a cozy/comfortable mountain getaway/wedding/whatev. You will be completely surrounded by mountains and the lakes are awesome! We coordinated with Mattie a few days ahead of time to arrange for our arrival. At that time, he informed us that due to an unusually long winter there was still lots of snow on the access road approaching the Observatory. No worries, though! Mattie was working to clear the snow/ice leading to the observatory. By our arrival time, we were able to drive up to the Alta ghost town on cleared road. At the ghost town, Mattie met us with two snowmobiles. We packed our gear in a cargo sled and hopped on the snowmobiles for a 5 minute ride to the observatory. Awesome experience! We never thought that we would be snowmobiling to the Observatory for our wedding on June 15th, but it was a pleasant surprise that kicked off our weekend adventure.
Arriving at the Observatory was an overwhelming experience on the senses! The structure of the Observatory juxtaposed with the natural beauty of the mountains was breathtaking! Once inside the Observatory we were overcome with the details of the place. Every nook and cranny has something interesting and unique to check out; a lot of mining stuff around that we found interesting. Not to mention that the Observatory has all the modern amenities you would expect (modern kitchen, directv, wifi, sound system, etc...). Mattie even had a tub full of snowshoes for us to use. It was a blast hiking around the site with snowshoes!
Our wedding day was AMAZING! The day started sunny in the morning, clouded up, rained, snowed, then cleared again and the sun returned. Our officiant and photographer arrived during the snow period. They coordinated with Mattie to be picked up by snowmobile. The photographer also was pulling double duty for us to bring the food and flowers. We have an awesome video of Mattie arriving on snowmobile at the Observatory before the wedding with my fiances flower bouquet in hand. We quickly learned that there are no conditions that would keep Mattie from getting everyone and everything safely to the Observatory.
Most magical place on earth.
Mattie made our stay at the Observatory the most extraordinary experience. We will never forget our amazing weekend- we want to come back every year. From the snowmobile rides to the gourmet kitchen to the ultra soft comfy beds- I can not say enough. Put this on your bucket list. Everyone deserves to be this happy for a few days.
We all (kids & dogs included!) had a wonderful time at the observatory. Loved every minute of our stay there! The view is so amazing out the kitchen window that I actually didn’t mind doing dishes. Kids loved having the lake just right outside the door and it was especially nice to have canoes, stand up paddle boards and tubes for them to use. Mattie was a great host as well. Can’t wait to go back next summer!
We had the most amazing stay at The Observatory. Our entire group loved the cabin and the surroundings. The Observatory is truly a special place. We enjoyed the hot tub, star gazing, spending time on the lake, hiking around, and had a great time in town for Blues and Brews. It was a fantastic weekend! We definitely plan to come back, especially in the winter.
Thanks again for sharing such a special place!
We picked the Observatory for our wedding based on pictures we found online. We had no clue how perfect this decision was! The first time we drove the dirt road up, we kept smiling and saying, this is where we're getting married? It can't get better. But every little bit we went up, it got better! That spot was absolutely incredible!! Matt showed us a spot up the hill from the old truck we ended up using as our ceremony spot. It was perfect. Our families and guests LOVED it as well. I don't think there was anything negative about the weekend at all. It was a bit rainy but even then, it didn't matter and didn't detract from the weekend.
The house itself is comfortable and the kitchen is really well done. The drive isn't that bad and shouldn't be an issue for most people! We're glad to have been able to experience this location for our wedding and know we'll be back for years to come!
This Place is Incredible!
Alta Lakes Observatory is a magical place. Nestled in the back side of Telluride Ski Resort, with a private lake, and tons of hiking/skiing routes, this place is perfect for the adventure seeker; or someone who just wants to go relax! It is a good drive to the house from town, but once you get up there you don't want to leave! Tons of wildlife, a beautiful house and private lake with canoes, and tons of access to hiking during the summer or skiing during the winter. This place has a rich history in Colorado, and is an amazing vacation. We cannot wait to go back.
