Now as the General Manager of the hotel, she brings poise and polish to the role and treats guests like family. She enjoys hiking, biking, and skiing and will help you experience Telluride like a local.

Travis Tayrien, Front Desk

It’s hard to say who is responsible for his calm, collective coolness, while at the same time being so eager to learn and easy-going. This dude just smiles. Drop all the plates? He’ll smile. Winter for 11 months? He’ll smile. World ending tomorrow? He’ll smile. You get the idea.


Kendra Norris, Front Desk

Originally from the red dirt of west Texas, Kendra brings a little southern charm to the front desk. When she isn’t out hiking or skiing you can finding her painting or playing her ukulele and crooning to her cat, Harry.

Michael Battery, Front Desk

Michael has lived in Telluride since 2009 and has no plans to leave anytime soon! His favorite season here is still winter. He graduated with a B.A. in Technical Journalism from Colorado State University in 2008. Michael enjoys long hikes in the summer with his fiance, Lea, and spending time at home with his two cats Copper and Leroy.

Mairin Keleher, Front Desk 

A Green Mountain State native, Mairin made tracks to Colorado in 2012 in search of higher peaks and deeper forests. Originally having moved to Breckenridge first she has found Telluride proves to be the natural wonder of a location she has been searching for. She loves to participate in the performing arts, particularly choral and theater work. In her free time she enjoys getting into the trees for exploring and camping with her dog-cat Cora, dancing to open air concerts, reading by the river, and picking new tunes on the strings of her guitar.
