About the area: The town of Ouray is known as the "Switzerland of America," and is nestled in a small valley with 360-degree views of 12,000-14,000 mountains. Ridgway, nicknamed the "Gateway to the San Juan’s," is well-known as the place where the John Wayne movie "True Grit" was filmed. Many of the movie set's buildings are still used today by local businesses. These two historic towns offer a variety of activities: restaurants, shops, museums, galleries, hot springs pools, hiking, fishing and boating. Day trips to Silverton, Telluride and Durango are fun as well.
Ouray is also often called "The Jeeping Capital of the World" because of its many trails through the high country (rated easy to rugged). We recommend renting a jeep or off road vehicle from either Ouray or Silverton and spending the day(s) exploring.
Golf is available at beautiful Divide Ranch Golf Club located on Log Hill Mesa, a short drive from the property. Telluride and Montrose also have golf courses.
Ouray and Ridgway both offer local markets, and you can find larger stores like City Market, Safeway, Target and Walmart in Montrose, about a 25 minute drive from the lodge.
