Vacation Getaway Surrounded by Mountains
The ranch was easy to find, following the owner's directions. As we drove up the long driveway, bluebirds flew from post to post, getting closer to the house as we got closer! The house was just as pictured with wonderful views out the many windows facing the Sneffels Range. A large wrap-around deck was great for taking photographs and just watching the birds. We had our two Terrier-mix dogs with us and they loved running around on the property, chasing after chipmunks and rabbits that were too smart for them! We brought tie-outs for them, but didn't use them a single time... we were so far from the road that we had no worries about the dogs getting to it.
The ranch felt like home as soon as we got there. Everything you need is already there!! Lots of property to explore; old farm implements as well as old outbuildings! If you're looking for isolation, you've got it there!! Just 7 miles off Hwy 550 between Montrose and Ridgway. Plenty of places surrounding us for our 4WD adventures and just nice drives for beautiful scenery! Close enough to Montrose for grocery shopping; to Ridgway for some great meals; Ouray for the Hot Springs and shopping and Hwy 550 south of Ouray and into Silverton for the most beautiful, scenic drive in the country!!
The ranch was large enough to easily sleep at least 8-10 people and would be great for a family vacation or even multiple families (although for us it was just the 2 of us and the dogs)!! I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to go somewhere and 'take it easy' for a week or two!!! We definitely plan on coming back!! Thank you, James, for the opportunity to stay in this wonderful home!!
