DRAMATIC MOUNTAIN RETREAT W/BREATHTAKING VIEWS AND STREAM

Ridgway Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 8)

Beautiful Mountain retreat with breathtaking views. This home sits at 9,000 ft in the San Juan mountains with great hiking, biking and snow sports from the front door. It has 3 bedrooms - large master and a bunk room that sleeps 4 as well as a den/bdroom w/queen sofa sleeper. This home also offers a great room with 21 ft ceilings, walls of glass, a large stone fireplace and state of the art entertainment center, an open kitchen w/stainless appliances, concrete counter tops, large bar, dining table for 10, a screened in porch, over 1200 sq ft of decks with postcard views, an outdoor wood burning fireplace, loft with 2 offices and a pool table, an outdoor shower with views and even a gym in the front of the 40 ft long heated garage.

I built this home in 2008 as a place to eventually retire and when designing and building I took great care with the custom details.

I used natural local materials such as reclaimed barnwood for floors and beams, natural biodegradable stains and stone from the local mountains.

The views from every window, porch and deck are amazing. From the east and south decks you can enjoy spectacular views of the Cimmaron range and the San Juan Range. From the front porch and north screened porch you will enjoy the serenity of the beautiful mountain stream cascading through the front yard.

Whether you are looking for a summer, fall, winter or spring retreat - you will love the beauty of this setting and all it has to offer.

Beautiful mountain retreat!

  • 5 of 5
This property is just spectacular! Nestled just above Ridgway in a secluded area, the views from this chalet are second to none! We vacationed at Rick's home for 5 days and enjoyed every bit! The location couldn't be better. It's about 15 minutes from downtown Ridgway, which makes it a perfect "get-a-way" but not too far from the amenities of town. The property itself is better than advertised with enough room for a large family with kids! The large deck with awesome views was a favorite at night! We hope to go back soon! You won't be disappointed.

Perfect Ridgway Get Away

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house and location. I rented the home as a surprise for my father's 70th birthday; he was totally blown away. We loved cooking in the well designed kitchen and thoroughly enjoyed hanging out on the deck by the outside fireplace. The outdoor shower was great as well! Perfect location for getting to trails and all of the fun local towns. The owner was easy to correspond with and prompt with answering questions.

Amazing House on so many levels!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We would recommend this house 100 times over. We stayed a full week and could have easily stayed a whole month.There is only positive things to say about this house and the surrounding location. The views from the house instantly relax you and make you realize what a beautiful area this is. The inside of the house is amazing also. Rick has done a masterful job of appointing the house with a very nice rustic decor. Not to mention everything is top of the line and very clean. On several occasions we commented on how every detail of the house is addressed and tastefully designed. The kids loved playing pool, spending the evenings looking at the stars on the deck, playing games by the fire on the deck or playing in the little creek out the front of the house. Hiking in the surrounding forest is great also, Rick recommended Blaine's Basin and Blue Lakes, both hikes took us to some of the most beautiful scenery we have ever seen! If we are ever in the area again this will be our first choice!!!

This is an awesome cabin and we would encourage anyone to rent it. It is spacious and clean. We rented with another couple and there was plenty of room each with their own privacy. The views are astonishing and the deck is the perfect place to take in the views. It rained one evening and we simply went outside and made a fire in the fireplace that had a covered roof and watched the lightning. There are plenty of activities nearby. We ate at the True Grit café and also at Colorado Boy who had the best pizza we had ever eaten.

Breathtaking View

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for a week long vacation. We arrived at night and were awakened by a stunning view of the mountains through the floor to ceiling windows in the bedroom. We were looking for a place to relax, cook, and hike. The house was beautiful and very clean. The kitchen was perfect with everything we could have wanted for cooking. The natural gas grill out back was fantastic and we LOVED the outdoor fireplace, used it almost every night. The view of the night sky from the deck is incredible, I've never seen so many stars! I have no complaints about my stay here and the owner was very helpful in setting it all up. Especially given that I was on a deployment on the other side of the world while trying to plan this vacation. I couldn't have asked for a better vacation to welcome me back to the United States. The surrounding area has no shortage of things to do from biking and hiking to water sports and the town of Ridgway is small and welcoming. We would not hesitate to return in the future, it was a lovely escape from reality.
