My family and I spend as much time as we can at ERR. We live in Denver and come up anytime we need a break from the city life. The ranch is peaceful and beautiful, each of the rooms decorated immaculately while still keeping an air of rustic comfort. The ranch is located in Ridgway, which is a perfect location to feel the seclusion of a "real Colorado" mountain town and still being close to great restaurants and the nearby ski resort of Telluride. We usually go on a few day trips (fishing, music festivals, nearby mining towns) but once we get there, we spend most of our time at the ranch itself because it is so relaxing and beautiful. Downtown Ridgway is a close walk from the ranch and has local restaurants, yoga, antique shops and fishing/adventure outfitters. There is also a grocery market with everything you could need to cook some great meals. It's the perfect place for a family or couple to get away from normal life and enjoy a few days of peace and comfort. We have been to the ranch during different times of the year and there isn't a bad time to go. In the summer, the area is busy with festivals, farmers markets and fishing. In the winter, the mountains are breathtaking and Telluride is easy to get to for skiing. There are also places to do outdoor activities like snowmobiling and ice-climbing in the winter.
