Our contemporary home is located in the Marie Scott Sub Division of beautiful Ridgway, Colorado, with gorgeous mountain views. Our home is centrally located between the town of Montrose, Telluride Ski Resort and one of the premier ice climbing towns, Ouray, also known as the the Switzerland of Colorado.

We have remodeled our home, giving it an urban zen feel. Designed by an artist and interior designer, this stylish home has a new kitchen with stainless steel modern appliances, hardwood floors, new bathrooms. We just added a beautiful 10'x18' patio addition with outdoor furniture, over looking town and the Cimmaron Mountains.

Our backyard backs up to a slope against the mountains were you will often see deer and other wildlife while dining in the kitchen or relaxing in the living area.

Wonderful views, perfect for long weekend with family

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of six adults and two children, and everyone was very happy at this lovely and very comfortable home. Ridgeway was a happy little secret, and was perfectly situated between visiting Ouray and Telluride for day trips. We loved watching the pink sunsets over the impressive mountains, and the views from the deck were expansive and breathtaking. The bedrooms were more than ample, and there were tons of towels and bedding and all you can need for cooking and enjoying family. The owners had great communication, as well as great taste! Very lovely home!

Excellent Winter New Year Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with breathtaking views!! I must say the pictures shown do give an idea of how beautiful this home is but in reality the home is much much more!! It's so spacious and comfortable!! We had four families (8 adults, 6 kids) altogether stay in this beautiful home and there was so much wiggle room. The kids had a great time, as well as the adults, we didn't want to leave. We visited the beautiful town of Telluride and soaked in the hot springs pool in Ouray, not to mention, we met some wonderful friendly locals in Ridgway!! The homeowners were wonderful to work with and responded quickly to any questions I had! I Highly recommend this beautiful home for your next family winter getaway!
