Ridgway House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Spacious Living Area, Modern Kitchen, Views, Outside Patios

Ridgway's finest rental! Visit our quaint town and quiet home in Ridgway, Colorado. Nestled between Ouray and Telluride, Ridgway is the gateway to the San Juan Mountains, located at 6,985 feet. Our unique, in-town location offers the 'best of everything' at your finger tips. Enjoy the spectacular views while cooking, dining or relaxing in our comfortably, open home. The house is fully furnished with all the necessary amenities to dine in and watch movies, or grill outside and watch the wildlife. Our small town has a lot of character with plenty of opportunities for the adventurous tourist or those seeking stillness in nature.

We are a short walk from town, which contains restaurants, a grocery store, brewery and community park. Two blocks away is the Chipeta Resort and Spa which has a fitness center, hot tub and spa treatments available with a reservation. Across from the Chipeta are two brand new very nice public tennis courts, soccer fields and an amazing skateboard/bike park (please bring your own equipment for these). The town itself has weekly summer concerts and farmers markets (all within walking distance). Ridgway is a 15 minute drive from the scenic town of Ouray, 45 minutes from Telluride, and 30 minutes from the Montrose airport.

Some additional highlights of the area include easy access to hiking, four wheeling, horseback riding, hot springs, local rock climbing crags, climbing fourteeners, and over 20 miles of mountain biking trails. Ridgway State Park is located 10 miles from town and can be accessed via a paved biking trail or car. The park has three entrances that provide access to a swimming beach, boating ramp, fishing, camping and hiking. The Umcompahgre River runs through town with easy access to fly fishing and kayaking from the house. The nearby Divide Ranch and Golf Club offers breathtaking views of Mt. Sneffels, one of the tallest and grandest peaks in Colorado.

About Keith Garvey

We are a young couple that enjoy spending time outdoors and traveling whenever our schedules allow. Keith owns a small guide service and spend his summers mountain guiding in the Alps. Krista is an elementary teacher and enjoys the benefit of having summers off.

Keith Garvey purchased this house in 2012

Why Keith Garvey chose Ridgway

We love Ridgway and our community. We have been living in town for the past four years, and appreciate the time we spend in this friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Ridgway is a small town with a BIG heart. We understand the value of taking a break from the daily routines, and due to the nature of our professions we leave during the summer to travel in Europe. We were fortunate to buy this property last year, and have put our heart and soul into fixing it up. We welcome others to enjoy 'our piece of rural solitude'

What makes this house unique

Our large, in town lot backs to open space with dramatic mountain views and wildlife watching. The scenery is captivating 24 hours a day!

Would definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect for our family of 5. The beds were comfortable and the house was very well equiped with everything you needed to prepare a meal in the home. The home was made very well with top of the line materials. The best feature was the view though. We couldn't get enough of the view! I think this house has the best view in town! We would definitely recommend to friends and family and we are hoping we can come back again!

Conveinent, Clean and Classy

  • 5 of 5
We selected this house as a launching pad to ski/climb in the surrounding areas. It exceeded our expectations as a VRBO rental in many ways.
We were a short drive (45 mins) to the ski resorts in Telluride and Silverton and really close to the Ice Park in Ouray. Ridgway itself surprised us with the variety of good restaurants available to us. The house is close enough to town where after a long day in the mountains we could walk to town and have dinner.
much of the house has recently renovated and was very clean. The owners had left information about the area in case we didn't have ideas where to play or dine which was helpful.
The view from the house was nothing less than spectacular. The 1 story living with the soaring ceilings made the property feel huge. I will be coming back in the summer to do some more exploring of the area. 100% I would recommend this property to friends and family.

Great Location, Awesome views

  • 5 of 5
My husband needed to be in Ouray on business so the kids and I decided to tag along. The views off the back of the house are amazing. The house was very clean and everything was as described by the owners. We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to the area.

Ideal location

  • 4 of 5
Hello, My husband and I along with our daughter and her two children (1/1/2 and 3/1/2) stayed at the house in Ridgeway from June 6-13, 2014. We had overnights from an additional granddaughter along with our son-in-law who was able to make it for the weekend.

We found the house and location just perfect for our needs. The location is terrific, the views are wonderful all day and night and the Solar Ranches neighborhood is comfortable and ideal. It was hard to leave the house. With young children we loved being able to walk outside and BBQ or bike right out the front door. We biked or walked to the park, the bike trails and the library several times. We drove to the hot pools in Ouray several times and during a thunder store went to Orvis where there is an indoor, clothing required, pool for families which really saved us one day.

The house is spacious and really easy to be in with extended family members as each bedroom has its own separate bathroom. The kitchen was really fun to cook in with a big gas stove. The house has some personality but is not overwhelming or to fancy. I believe the owners have been doing lots of work. We would definitely recommend the house and hope to go back some day.

Best Vacation home EVER

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I planned a vacation to Ridgway for ourselves and two other couples to explore the local 4x4 trails. This was a return trip for everyone except myself. I found this lovely home on VRBO and fell in love. When we arrived everything was perfect. We had plenty of room, were able to cook at home instead of spending a fortune eating out and to be able to wash all our clothes before heading out was priceless. The owners came through with everything they promised. The views were fantastic and the stars at night were awesome. We would highly recommend staying here and are already planning to come back next year!

Holidays in the Hills 2013-14

  • 5 of 5
My Family and our Friends had spectacular time staying at the Garvey house in Ridgeway. The open floor plan coupled with bedrooms tucked into the corners made for a great place to spend our Christmas and New Years Holidays. The views are absolutely incredible! The house is just as it appears in the photos and the owners were very easy to work with and helped out as well during our stay.
