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

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.

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.

What a relaxing and perfect three days we enjoyed at this beautiful place...we just love looking out at Mt. Sneffles, we never tire of it as it changes with different shades of light and dark....a perfect place for an artist. Hope to return often in the future as I have such wonderful memories of our lovely time there.

OMG!!!!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place, and what an incredible view!!! Thank you, thank you, for our quick escape from reality! The cabin is wonderful, and in tip top condition, well laid out for families, although it was only the two of us getting away for our anniversary. (We too honeymooned in the San Juan's - 37 years ago!) We can see all the love and detail that went into making this cabin a real retreat! The decorating, the artwork, piano, kid spaces, and oh, so clean! It's a great location, close to lots of amenities, but yet, far, far away......
I've had a love affair with the San Juans for 37 years since first visiting, and I go back regularly, but I've never trekked up County Road 5 before. The San Juans are called "Little Switzerland" in the US, and this was by far the closest vision to the Alps I've seen thus far. You're cabin sits in this quaint valley, and then...there's the mountain peaks!!! It truly is God's creation!!!
We want to take our whole family back!! And soon!!!
Thank you! Thank you! Jody and Greg

THE MOST ROMANTIC MOUNTAIN HOME

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had the privilege of staying in the Sneffles Retreat for a week after Christmas. The home is tucked in just below Mt. Sneffles and is about 15 minutes from the quaint artsy town of Ridgeway. The home was very well kept. Everything was very clean. The kitchen was beautiful as was the rest of the house. The combination between tasteful interior design, prime location between ski resorts, and the breath taking view of the mountains from the great room really made our vacation special. We were blown away with by the sense of escape we experienced. We will be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Christopher, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Sneffels Retreat! It is pretty amazing that the Grammy Awards are manufactured in Ridgway.

FAMILY WINTER RENDEZVOUS

  • 5 of 5
Perfect for a family winter rendezvous and ski trip! The house itself and the surrounding locations (Ridgway, Ouray, Telluride) had something for everyone which was great considering everyone's multifaceted vacation interests.

Love to come back in the summer sometime and enjoy the hiking/mountaineering and music festivals in neighboring towns.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you got to come and spend time at the cabin. It is a great place for families and friends to gather and share. It's a good thing Santa brought "Settlers of Catan" to add to the game library. I am glad you enjoyed your time. We do hope you will return and see the changing seasons. Thanks for your nice review!

EXACTLY WHAT WE WANTED & EVEN BETTER!

Exactly What We Wanted & Even Better!
  • 5 of 5
We wanted to spend our holidays away from our Midwest routines with family and friends in beautiful Colorado. This super cozy mountain home offers unbelievable views, serenity and tons of comfort while being easily accessible to the quaint towns of Ridgeway, Telluride and more. Not only did we enjoy our skiing fix because of the easy drive from the rental, but also due to the layout and thoughtful amenities the owners provided. There's a mud room that accommodated all our gear out of the way. There are bedrooms tucked away that work for a variety of sleeping arrangements and the baths are spacious, convenient and handle the number of quests that the home sleeps really well. We also found the open great room adjacent to the kitchen and eating areas to support activities from lounging around by the fire, to hilarious group games. People could catch up with each other while looking out the grand windows to Mt. Sneffels or they could grab a nap or watch a movie or chat in private without being hard pressed to find a spot to do this - even though we had a group! Also, the kitchen has everything you would need and room for people to hang out in it or to help with the preparations.
We're looking forward to visiting here again for some warm weather Colorado fun! It seems to be the perfect spot to mecca out to all sorts of sites, terrains and events without having to spend too much time in the car! I highly recommend this cool, charming place!

WOW!

  • 5 of 5
The most amazing thing about this place is the view! Great road getting to it. Very clean and comfortable. Well stocked. Plenty of room for LOTS of people. Very nicely furnished and great finishes in bathrooms and kitchen. Modern yet rustic. I used this place for skiing at Telluride and it was a warm, welcome home to come back to after a day on the slopes. Highly recommended. Thanks Jody and Marsha!
