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.
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.

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'
Our large, in town lot backs to open space with dramatic mountain views and wildlife watching. The scenery is captivating 24 hours a day!
Wonderful place to stay for our home base to explore Ouray and Telluride. The house was very clean and comfortable, with amazing views from large windows throughout the home. The setup of the house has everything you could ask for in a home away from home, including a spacious layout and open kitchen which was great for entertaining, and the most comfortable beds. The house is a short walk to the market and town, while being secluded and backed up to an open field with great views. We cooked most nights, and were not left wanting, with the great range/oven, and large grill. We look forward to our next visit.
This house is fantastic - will definitely come back! Spectacular views of the majestic San Juans from every room! The views are worth it alone but then it has all the comforts, necessities and amenities of home. The kitchen is awesome with all the tools/equip for a chef, and with an open floor plan to the dining and living areas it was perfect for gathering and sharing stories after fun filled days in the mountains! The owners have done an excellent job to make the home and stay warm, relaxing and inviting - like you are in your own mountain dream home! The location in historic Ridgway is perfect too - just a short walk from the main street restaurants, shops, etc., but also a great central location for exploring the San Juans and the nearby towns of Silverton, Ouray and Telluride. Cannot wait to come back!
We loved this home as a family retreat. The floor plan worked well, the two large queen/king bedrooms were comfortable plus a 2-bed bedroom in the front. Beautifully designed southwestern style home. The view from the back patio is astounding. Plus, Ridgway has so much to offer and is such a friendly small town. The Orvis hot spring is close and really a nice property. A great home base for hiking trips as well.
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!
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.

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.
