We hope that you enjoy our cozy mountain cabin. It is the perfect getaway mountain retreat. You will enjoy huge views of the Mt Sneffels range along with great sunsets off the deck to the west. The cabin sits on 1 acre of land and has comfy furniture and ample beds (twin, double, & queen) in this rustic retreat.
The cabin lies 2000' above the town of Ridgway. It is a 15 min. 8 mile drive to town on a beautiful well maintained dirt road. If you want to enjoy the beauty and attractions that this part of Colorado is known for then this is the place to stay.

I currently live and work in Telluride Colorado. I have been in the area for 10 years and actually lived in the cabin for 3 of those years.
Virginia (Ginny) Petrie purchased this cabin in 2001
Its an amazing place and location graced with clean air, peaceful vibes yet close enough to town to get supplies and see the sights.
The best thing about the cabin is how peaceful and quiet it is. I live in Telluride but it doesn't hold a candle to the peaceful tranquility of our cabin in Ridgway.
We had a wonderful stay at this cabin. It worked very well for our family of five, and the location and views are amazing!!
The location is worth the short drive to and from Ouray, which we spent a few days exploring. We also took a day trip to Telluride, and even the little town of Ridgway is worth checking out - our young boys loved the Railroad Museum there.
We hope to return again some day!!
We loved staying here during our vacation to the San Juans!
Thank you Ginny for sharing your lovely and cozy cabin with us!! We made some happy family memories (which we detailed in your guest book). :-)
To potential renters: the pictures of this cabin don't do it justice. It's an inviting, sunny and comfortable place. And no joke.. the views are outstanding!! If you do nothing else on your trip but sit on the back deck and gaze at the expansive mountain views, you will be happy, relaxed and rejuvenated. It's an adorable cabin with big windows, two porches, enough room for a family... and is private without feeling too remote.
The interior is thoughtfully decorated, and has a warm vibe of happy times having been had over the years. It is stocked with everything you will need (aside from food, of course).
Our family was very content there, as our home-base while enjoying all that Ridgway and Ouray have to offer (hiking, hot springs, dining, a train museum and park for the kids, walks through the beautiful and friendly neighborhood, etc). And almost every day of our stay we had deer literally right off the porch.
One thing to note: it's high up! I live in Colorado and I still had some mild issues with the altitude. Drink lots of water!
Many kind thanks to you Ginny. We look forward to a return visit!! :-)
We had a wonderful stay at Ginny's cabin. The home was very clean and neat. Everything, including linens and towels, smelled fresh. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking. The deck was awesome. We stayed in August but the cabin stayed cool by drawing the shades when we left for the day. Slight drive into the cute town of Ridgway but still a private location to stay. we loved the cabin decor - it had a warm and homey feel.
This very affordable cottage has everything you need for a quiet retreat in the mountains. It was nicely furnished and homey as well. We felt we were staying in the cottage of a friend.
The 180 degree view was spectacular. Every evening from the deck we watched the clouds swirl around the mountain view while relaxing after a day of hiking, One morning we were in awe of two large mule deer grazing just a few feet away in the lower brush.
The location near Ridgway made shopping for groceries convenient. It was also nice to be out of the hustle and bustle of Ouray where we picked up our hiking trails.
Thanks, Ginny for sharing your cabin with us.
Unusually hot for August, no A/C, enjoyed the back patio, needs umbrella stand so you can move the umbrella with the sun. No screen on lower bedroom window so you can't open at night to cool down. Like I said it was unusually hot! We enjoyed our stay, perfect for 4, but not more, enjoyed playing games provided and cooking in the kitchen! Neighbors were a little loud and not as remote at we had hoped, but over all nice. The loft is not easily accessible so we put the kids up top.
ridgway chamber has a very good website. Check that out. Also you can call me direct for specific inquiries. 440-477-0416 EST

Know that this little cabin is in high elevation & faces south. Hydrate before you come out. Tap water is excellent! Please don't bring bottled water. Throw away plastics are a pox on the environment. Electric heat warms in winter NO FIRES IN or ON THIS PROPERTY, ever! Thermal blinds control heat from sun year round. Most important, put your feet up, enjoy the peace of the place & relax! Ahh!
