The Real Colorado

  • 5 of 5
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.

Poole Family

This beautiful ranch has become our favorite vacation destination. The panoramic views are breathtaking. The house is large with multiple wings/suites to easily accommodate large or even multiple families. The massive kitchen is just one of several locations in the house where you can congregate in groups to enhance the social aspects of vacationing. If you want some alone time for reading or contemplation, there are multiple porches to take advantage of views and the morning or afternoon Colorado sun. The property has a great catch and release trout pond which has never yet disappointed the fishermen in our family. Afternoons/early evenings sitting on the covered dock is a favorite activity. There is some fun hiking on the property and into the adjacent hills. Although you have the experience of being out in the country, a relatively short walk into the little town of Ridgway is convenient for groceries and some decent restaurants. After adjusting to the altitude, I am always ready for some great runs in the area. A few miles up the road is the very western town of Ouray - with hot springs pools, interesting shops and a variety of good restaurants. We can't wait to get back!
