I'm originally from Santa Fe NM where I grew up. My family has owned this property for 114 years and I decided to relocate to help with the operation. Ridgway is an outdoor enthusiasts dream and offers 4 seasons.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

This property has been my personal residence for the past several years. I chose Ridgway to help assist with family ranch operations and the incredible outdoor experiences.

VIEWS and PRIVACY! Very convenient location, just 8 minutes to Ridgway. Wildlife and photography, large Ponderosas and a very relaxing setting! This home is clean and very comfortable.

A spectacular home with breathtaking views!!!

  • 5 of 5
This home was far and away the most perfect place for our Colorado get away. The house is situated exquisitely to take in all of majestic Sneffles and the rest of the mountains in the Sneffles part of the range (which in my opinion, is one of the most gorgeous ranges in the country!). The house was beautiful, clean, comfortable, well appointed, and had everything we could have needed. The beds were especially comfortable after a long day of hiking and and we awoke one morning to views of the range and a herd of elk grazing in the meadow. Magical!! My camera is probably still warm from all the amazing photos I took at dawn, dusk and just about every moment we were at this lovely home. Words truly cannot describe the beauty of the environment, and the loveliness of this home!

If you come to hike, be sure to check out the Blue Lakes trail. We only went as far as the lower blue lakes, but we've never been on a more beautiful hike (and this is saying something!) Bountiful, colorful wildflowers at every turn...turquoise blue lakes....amazing vistas....you get the idea!! Heaven! We enjoyed a nice dinner in town one night, but honestly, the home was so comfortable, we also enjoyed just renting a movie and having a quiet dinner at the house. It was perfect! The house is well situated to make a quick trip to nearby Ouray or into Telluride, if you desire, as well.

Michael was incredibly responsive and he took the time to talk me through everything I would need to know upon our arrival. I would rent from him again in a heartbeat. We are already looking forward to and planning our next trip, and without a doubt, I'll be renting this amazing home again!

Thanks, Michael, for your gracious help, for sharing your lovely home, and for providing the venue for memories that will truly last a lifetime!!!

Very relaxing after days of camping

  • 5 of 5
Our search for a place to stay for our family off-road Jeep adventure was immediately over when we found this place. We were hooked by the views from the pictures online, but when we got there they were more fantastic than we could have ever imagined. The cabin was perfect. After camping for the past few days were were ecstatic to have hot showers, a comfortable couch to relax on & extremely comfortable beds. Thanks Mike for allowing us to stay in your fantastic cabin!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
The word used most often while we stayed there was "Beautiful." This is by far one of most beautiful places I have ever stayed and I am from Colorado. The house hit all our needs and then some. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with all my needs to cook. The AZ couple wished they could use the fireplace, but there really was no need. We had plenty of room and felt very comfortable there. I will be back. Would love to see it in the fall. Mike was so helpful and we were so in love with the place we forgot to call when we arrived. Sorry Mike. This was a great experience.

Everything and more

This was our first experience renting a vacation home over the internet. We were nervous, but when we arrived we found the house and the setting to be better than what we expected. We spent a week relaxing, cooking, watching wildlife and enjoying the surrounding beauty of Colorado. We plan to make this a regular event. Thanks Mike for a great week.

Amazing Mountain Home - Incredible Views!!

  • 5 of 5
Words can't really capture this fabulous home and location! If we could give this property 6 stars, we would!! Our family (2 adults, 2 children) spent an incredible week enjoying this wonderful home and location and there is no doubt we will be back soon. It is remote (yet close), private, inviting and so very wonderful in every way. The home location and design is amazing and the upkeep is impeccable. Then the views...BEYOND AMAZING! We live in Colorado and are very familiar with the mountain ranges. We have been looking for a rental property in this area of the state for many years. This has to be one of the best views and locations available! We were able to stay here and still ski and have dinner in Ridgway or Telluride in a short drive. Our children spent many days snowshoeing out the front door - what memories they will have from this vacation! We are so very thankful to Mike for the opportunity to rent his little piece of heaven on earth!

Breathtaking and secluded.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent 4 days at this beautiful home. Day one, rain, sleet and snow, and it was beautiful. The rest of the time was nothing but sunshine and beautiful days. We have stayed in Telluride, Mountain Village, Ouray and Durango. This was our first stay in Ridgeway. I think this is where we will stay from now on. There is so much history in this area of Colorado and beautiful scenery around every corner. The house was exactly as described. The views CANNOT be beat. The house was clean and in perfect condition. It is located conveniently to all the jeep trails, hiking trails, ATV/UTV Trails, and shopping too, but far enough you can avoid the tourist crowds. You are far enough from town you do not hear anything but wildlife, (our favorite were the elk bugling in the evenings and at night,) but close enough to drive to town for supper if you don't feel like cooking. We enjoy the solitude and peace of the mountains and we found it at this home. We will definitely stay here again if possible. Thank you Mike for sharing your beautiful home.
