About Marsha Waugh

Jody and Marsha welcome you to their dream home. As outdoor enthusiasts, they have spent over 20 years exploring the hidden wonders of western Colorado. They completed their mountain retreat in 2010 and hope you too will come experience the grandeur of the San Juan Mountains.

Jody is research scientist who has spent his career cleaning up the legacy waste of the Cold War. He loves downhill skiing, biking, and mountain climbing. Marsha, a music teacher, loves spending time hiking, mountain biking, and playing with their grand children, 2 cats, and 2 llamas. She teaches Tai-chi, Yoga, and Pilates. They both love traveling and spending time with family. They are happy to help their guests enjoy there home, and create life long memories.

Marsha Waugh purchased this house in 2010

Why Marsha Waugh chose Ridgway

Jody grew up in Durango and always wanted to live in the mountains. After spending their honeymoon in the San Juan mountains, Jody and Marsha dreamed of having a place to share with family and friends. This spot is within an hour of many of the area's attractions. Our newly built home lets you experience life in the mountains with all the comforts of home at the end of the day.

What makes this house unique

With year round access, our guests can enjoy travel any time of the year. The cozy home allows you a place of refuge along with all the modern amenities. Our guests love the antiques and art that are displayed in the house. It is wonderful to sit on the sofa and watch the sunrises, and sunsets on Mt. Sneffles. The deck is a great place to relax, read, or eat. Seasonally, we watch the deer and elk stroll through the property. Hawks and other birds fly overhead. During the summer months, hummingbirds dart around stopping to drink from the seasonal wildflowers.

Cozy, freindly, easy rental with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 who fit perfectly in this wonderful cabin. Build to have family time yet give some space too after a fun day skiing.

Marsha and Jody communicated all we needed to know about their lovely cabin and even so many details about the area. We felt well advised for an easy vacation.

Jody stacked the most amazing fire for us to just light a corner of the wood and by the time we were unpacked and settled in we had a warm cozy fire.

the house has everything you need for your stay, we were not in need of anything!

We highly recommend this cabin and working with Marsha and Jody to have a comfortable stay away.

Ridgway is lovely town, our kids skied and snowboarded at Silverton. We had dinner one night in town and also enjoyed the Ouray hotsprings.

We will be back I am sure of it!

Owner's Response: I'm thrilled you had such a wonderful start for your New Year! Jody will be pleased to know the fire started easily. I am glad you got to enjoy our cozy home, and also take advantage of the fun venues close to our home. Thanks for your review, and Happy New Year!

Christmas Vacation 2014

  • 5 of 5

I couldn’t be any happier with my stay at Sneffles Retreat. I have skied Vail, Beaver Creek, and Breckenridge a number of times—the proximity and spectacular panoramic views of Telluride were incomparable as well as breathtaking. This location could accommodate a diverse array of vacationers, the versatility is a true value added. If you like to hike, fish, kayak, alpine/cross country ski, snowmobile, enjoy a mineral soak in natural hot springs, camp, ice climb, or sled (seeing there is a hill right outside the house) this is the place for you!

The house was very charming and fully stocked with all the modern conveniences anyone could ask for. I tremendously appreciated the attention to detail and immaculate conditions. The owners were very down to earth and eager to do anything in their power to make sure you enjoyed your stay. I will definitely be a repeat costumer!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home! It is truly a winter wonderland when there is fresh snow. Thank you for noticing the "little" things we do in our home to make to a comfortable stay. We do hope you will visit us again.

Wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in this beautiful home away from home. Everything was very neat and clean. I would highly recommend a stay here. Our main goal on the trip was to relax and view the scenic beauty of Colorado. We were not disappointed. A special treat at our cabin/home was the parade of deer that walked past our deck every morning. Our dealings with Marsha could not have been more pleasant. I felt as if I was talking on the phone to an old friend.

We jeeped the Colorado "rocky" mountain trails and visited the site where John Wayne had his final shoot out in "True Grit". The Aspens were gorgeous at that time of the year. I can only imagine the winter here with snow on the ground and a fire in the stove. If you are trying to decide on a place to stay, look no further. We definitely plan to go again.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your trip out west so much! Aren't the views amazing from the house? The deer think they live with us. I think if we left the doors open, they would move right in! We enjoyed having you visit our home. We hope you can visit our beautiful area again.

Beautiful mountain home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this home. It was exactly as pictured and sparkling clean. Marsha was wonderful to work with and we felt as if we'd known her for years. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. We had mostly adults and 1 child, who loved the small chair that was his size and sleeping on the top bunk. The view out the living room windows of Mt. Sneffels is breathtaking! The entire stay was very peaceful and relaxing. We loved the afternoon rains each day. Thank you Marsha for letting us stay in your beautiful retreat!
