We hope that you enjoy our cozy mountain cabin. It is the perfect getaway mountain retreat. You will enjoy huge views of the Mt Sneffels range along with great sunsets off the deck to the west. The cabin sits on 1 acre of land and has comfy furniture and ample beds (twin, double, & queen) in this rustic retreat.
The cabin lies 2000' above the town of Ridgway. It is a 15 min. 8 mile drive to town on a beautiful well maintained dirt road. If you want to enjoy the beauty and attractions that this part of Colorado is known for then this is the place to stay.

I currently live and work in Telluride Colorado. I have been in the area for 10 years and actually lived in the cabin for 3 of those years.
Virginia (Ginny) Petrie purchased this cabin in 2001
Its an amazing place and location graced with clean air, peaceful vibes yet close enough to town to get supplies and see the sights.
The best thing about the cabin is how peaceful and quiet it is. I live in Telluride but it doesn't hold a candle to the peaceful tranquility of our cabin in Ridgway.
We had a wonderful stay at this cabin. It worked very well for our family of five, and the location and views are amazing!!
The location is worth the short drive to and from Ouray, which we spent a few days exploring. We also took a day trip to Telluride, and even the little town of Ridgway is worth checking out - our young boys loved the Railroad Museum there.
We hope to return again some day!!
My wife and I were on a month long road trip, hiking and backpacking throughout Colorado. We stayed at the cabin for six days. We spent most of our time in a tent, so our expectations for the cabin were no higher than that of a typical hotel room. The location of the cabin was quite scenic; elk bugled every night, great views of the Sneffels massif. There were several other houses within a stone's throw, so it doesn't really feel secluded. We were disappointed with the condition of the cabin interior and general level of cleanliness:
Dirty washing machine
Dirty kitchen, especially the oven, which smoked heavily when used
Dirty bathroom, just look at the ceiling fan cover
Loose bathroom doorknob
Loose refrigerator handle
Bunk beds smelled unclean
Tiny microwave on wobbly table
Silverware in plastic boxes stacked on the floor
Grimy hand rails on loft ladder
Dust bunnies everywhere
No instructions on what to do with garbage--accumulated over six days--we ended taking it into town
Perhaps one or two of the above issues might have been acceptable. When considering the amount of money we paid, which also incurred an additional “cleaning fee”, we can’t help but feel dissatisfied. This was our first VRBO experience, and likely our last.
My husband and I stayed here for several days and it was wonderful. The cabin is clean, well-arranged and very comfortable. The view from the front windows is absolutely awesome. We were truly blessed to have stayed here and hope to return next year. Ginny was very good to work with and her son was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend the cabin. Plus, it is very quiet and a beautiful drive from Ridgway. Thanks.
We stayed at the cabin for a week and enjoyed every bit of it. Beautiful scenery and a very cozy little cabin! The peaceful and quiet setting is very inviting and the mountains are fantastic!! Was just as we were told it would be.
My Wife and really enjoyed the cabin. We really love the Ridgway and all of Ouray County. The scenery at the cabin is wonderful and so is the drive up to it. The cabin is clean and cozy. During our stay we hiked, traveled the area jeep trails, and not so traveled county roads. We highly recommend the cabin, and for Jeep rental: Switzerland of America in Ouray.
We stayed at Ginny's cabin for five days. We were in the area on vacation to run all the off road trails. The Cabin was well equipped and comfortable for the four of us that stayed there. We saw bears on the drive in and out almost every day! We also saw a fox and numerous deer. I highly recommend it! I'll be staying there again.
