Overview

Colorado Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 6)

Beautiful Mountain retreat with breathtaking views. This home sits at 9,000 ft in the San Juan mountains with great hiking, biking and snow sports from the front door. It has 3 bedrooms - 2 with queen beds and a bunk room with 4 bunk beds. This home offers a great room with 21 ft ceilings, walls of glass, a large stone fireplace and state of the art entertainment center. The modern kitchen is open to the great room with a bar and a dining area that seats 8 ppl. The kitchen walks out to the large screened porch that overlooks the stream and waterfalls in the front yard. This home also has a loft with TV area and a pool table that looks over the great room, 1200 sq ft of decks with postcard views, an outdoor wood burning fireplace, . The lower patio has an outdoor shower and hot tub and both have awesome views.

I built this home in 2008 as a place to eventually retire and when designing and building I took great care with the custom details.

I used natural local materials such as reclaimed barnwood for floors and beams, natural biodegradable stains and stone from the local mountains.

The views from every window, porch and deck are amazing. From the east and south decks you can enjoy spectacular views of the Cimmaron range and the San Juan Range. From the front porch and north screened porch you will enjoy the serenity of the beautiful mountain stream cascading through the front yard.

Whether you are looking for a summer, fall, winter or spring retreat - you will love the beauty of this setting and all it has to offer.

What a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This log home was everything it is advertised to be. Our family of four enjoyed our stay immensely. The breath taking 180 degree view off the deck is a million dollar view. We saw deer all over the neighborhood. The outdoor fireplace was great for smores. The loft and pool table is where our teenage boys hung out. The home is very private and access to town is just 15 minutes away. The kitchen has everything you need and the gas grill makes outdoor cooking easy. We would stay here again. We have rented log homes for several years in Colorado and Wyoming

This is our favorite. SW Colorado is heaven on earth!

Amazing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here last July. We have 3 kids. It was a beautiful home with amazing views! The kitchen was nice and there were plenty of rooms for everyone to have their own space. My favorite spot was on the deck having a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. We have been going to Colorado for years, but never in the summer. We fell in love with it!

Living the dream...

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous home with all the amenities -- couldn't have asked for more. We love to hike the nearby mountains and this is a great base to start from. And the views from the deck are spectacular. Thanks to the owner for sharing this special place with us. We will be back!

Beautiful mountain retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This property is just spectacular! Nestled just above Ridgway in a secluded area, the views from this chalet are second to none! We vacationed at Rick's home for 5 days and enjoyed every bit! The location couldn't be better. It's about 15 minutes from downtown Ridgway, which makes it a perfect "get-a-way" but not too far from the amenities of town. The property itself is better than advertised with enough room for a large family with kids! The large deck with awesome views was a favorite at night! We hope to go back soon! You won't be disappointed.

Perfect Ridgway Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and location. I rented the home as a surprise for my father's 70th birthday; he was totally blown away. We loved cooking in the well designed kitchen and thoroughly enjoyed hanging out on the deck by the outside fireplace. The outdoor shower was great as well! Perfect location for getting to trails and all of the fun local towns. The owner was easy to correspond with and prompt with answering questions.
