We just celebrated our 50th anniversary. We have three children and five grqndsons. We split our time between a home in Texas and this home in Colorado. David is a Texas Aggie, class of 1964, who spent most of his career in the supercomputer field. He also served on two different school boards in Texas and refereed both high school and college basketball for 22 years. Allynn is a retired high school math teacher with a bachlor's degree from the University of Houston and masters degree from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. She plays the piano and sings in and directs, as a substitute, church choirs both in Texas and in Ridgway.

David and Allynn Dealy purchased this house in 2004

In September, 2004, we were driving from Moab, Utah to Ouray, Colorado when we saw the San Juan mountains in all of their glory. We had just retired and were not really looking for a second home but the beauty of the area swept up away. We stopped at the first real estate office we saw in Ridgway, told the agent we wanted a log house with a view. She showed us this house, along with others, we went inside twice and literally bought it on the spot. The view is to die for and the home more than meets our needs with its lofted ceiling, deck, picture windows and access to wonderful hiking trails around the corner. Look at the pictures from our deck.

We are blessed with the uniqueness of our little piece of paradise. It is a house where one can enjoy the four seasons. Decks on three sides of the house, a wonderful great room with with high ceilings, aspen paneling and a pellet stove for cozy evenings are just some of the features of the house. We are just a block away from 3 different hiking trails, one of which overlooks the valley in what must be one of the most beautiful views in Colorado; a golf course nearby (golf when it is warm; cross country skiing when there is snow); wild animals in the yard (we have seen elk, mule deer, turkey, many beauutiful birds, grouse, bobcat, bear, mountain lion (only one of the last 3 in our 8 years so no danger). In Ridgway and the surrounding area are many winter and summer activities from fly fishing to river rafting to hot springs to horse back riding to jeeping in the hhigh country to outdoor concerts in summer and indoor concerts in winter to casual and fine dining to relaxing from all of the above on our deck or a choice of two different hot springs. There is excellent elk and mule deer hunting close by on both private ranches and public lands. Just ask us and we will be more than happy to let you know about all of the things you can do when you are here.

Great Family Vacation !!!

  • 5 of 5
My family was lucky enough to recently stay at the Dealy cabin for a week. We had a wonderful time. The cabin is just as pictured. The view from all sides of the deck is amazing! We were entertained by deer every morning and evening. We had heard there was a bear in the area but never got to see it. There is hiking close by and a gym that we were able to use. The cabin was clean, comfortable and VERY well stocked with everything we needed. The Dealy's even have bikes, coolers, walking poles and other things they gladly share. David supplied information about Ridgway and the surrounding area, which was very helpful. We hope to return again. Thanks for a GREAT vacation.

Owner's Response: Darla,
The San Juan mountains of Western Colorado are some of the most spectacular scenery and activities in the country. There is so much to do and explore and from your comments, I know you and your family had a great experience. Glad we could be a small part of it.

Wonderful Cabin and Location!

  • 5 of 5
My parents, husband and I stayed at Log Hill Cabin for our Christmas Holiday. It was a great central location to many sightseeing opportunities such as the towns of Ouray and Telluride (and of course Ridgway) and there were many outdoor activities to do - snowshoeing, hiking, wildlife viewing, etc. The landlord, David was very friendly, accommodating and a wealth of knowledge! He really helped us be able to plan our 4 days there and see all the neat places Southwest CO has to offer. His lists of restaurants, breweries and other activities was super helpful as well as giving us access to equipment to use. I highly recommend staying here when wanting to explore this part of Colorado. Thanks David!

A Wonderful Getaway house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5
I have had good experiences with VRBO homes but this was probably the best yet. We stayed 4 nights with three generations during the winter and everyone loved the house and our visit. First, the owners are great people and I felt very comfortable dealing with them throughout the process. Second, the location/views and access to activities exceeded our expectations. We were very familiar with the area from visiting family nearby but this location is truly spectacular. The trails within 100 yards of the house offer some of the best views in all of Colorado. I stood in one place on the escarpment trail and had the best views possible of the San Juan Mountains, the Cimarron range, and the Dallas divide. Below me some 800 feet lay the broad valley surrounding Ridgway and the narrower valley running up to Ouray -- all within a few minutes driving time. An elk herd in the valley grabbed our attention more than once during our stay. The house location offers beautiful isolation or activities close at hand -- whatever you wish to pursue. The house is very comfortable and well laid out for a family. The mud room entry in winter had everyone removing their shoes before entering the house which made it easy to avoid cleaning issues. The warm pellet stove kept the house toasty without the work of moving wood and was easy to keep clean. The open floor plan/large view windows made for an inviting living space. The amenities were all present and it was easy to find everything you needed.
We made our visit on a school winter break so we could include children but I can see this house being ideal for a myriad of groupings or a couple looking for a getaway.

Charming,Peaceful and Modern Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Charming and unique cabin and community,the woods and mountain views are spectacular. Waking up to see grouse/deer/wild turkeys/humming birds and many types of jays out my bedroom window was wonderful. Star gazing was exceptional with the clear skies with no city lights. Excellent location for hiking,photography and birding,several well maintained[but yet wild & natural] hiking trials which start on site,how relaxing to not have to drive to trailheads ! Spending time on the wrap around deck watching the wildlife was so relaxing,

Quite unusual to find a rental with bikes available for guests to use,and the paved/traffic free roads going for many miles were perfect for rides. Also, we enjoyed the close by hot springs for swimming in both Ouray and Ridgway. Telluride is a short scenic [we preferred the back road in] drive for music and food.

The listing description and pictures are very accurate. What you see at the website is what you get. On second thought--no it is not--it is even nicer than portrayed. The house is spotlessly clean and well maintained. It is nicely and comfortably decorated. The kitchen is well equipped. We prepared most of our meals there,but the short drive to Ridgway offers an amazing variety of excellent restaurants. The bedrooms are situated so that we felt we had plenty of privacy. The owners were warm,knowledgeable and were available to respond to all questions.We plan to return soon to this lovely cottage because it has all we were looking for,nature,culture,quiet and we are truly looking forward to the next visit.

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
As a couple of the previous reviews say, the pictures do not do justice to the location or the house/cabin. We searched a long time for a cabin in a somewhat secluded area and this was it! Ridgway was the perfect location for a home base for our week of vacation to the Ouray and Telluride area. The area is fantastic for hiking, river rafting, Jeep tours, fishing, visiting Telluride, etc. I could go on and on. The cabin had everything we could possibly need or want and the views of the mountains were spectacular from the deck. The owners were wonderful to work with. They provided all kinds of information about the area and answered all of our questions. With 3 bedrooms, it fit our family of 5 perfectly and there would have been plenty of room to accommodate more people. If you are looking for a place to stay in this area, I would highly recommend this cabin.

Beautiful home in a beautiful, quiet location close to many activities

  • 5 of 5
The pictures posted of the views from the deck are fantastic but do not do justice to just how spectacular it really is when enjoying the sunset at the end of day or the sunrise shining off the San Juans. Located only 20 minutes from Ouray and 10 minutes from Ridgway offered numerous dining options (Cimarron Cafe and True Grit in Ridgway are very good) and the short drive to Telluride provided skiing, dining and other Winter/Spring activities.
My wife and I enjoyed a romantic week in this very quiet (yet convenient) and comfortable place but it could easily accommodate families or groups with the separate bedroom and bathroom downstairs and the garage/storage area was great for the skis and other equipment.
I really appreciated the library when I found myself without a book to read and was pleased with the variety of books to borrow for the week. Just a little touch that was unexpected and appreciated for a rental.
The owners are able to answer questions about the area and provide ideas and inspiration on local activities, restaurants, etc. They were helpful with booking but we didn't have any issues arise during the stay but i'm sure that they would have handled those issues had they happened.
