Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a wonderful experience, Dick and Mary Ellen were lovely hosts and their house is just in the perfect spot for nature lovers. The view from the bedroom was breathtaking, and the house itself is just gorgeous and really well decorated. This is a much better choice compared to the b&b and hotels around the area, hope to visit again soon.

  • Wir wurden von Dick, M-E und ganz besonders Daisy (der charmanten Hofhündin) freundlich empfangen. Wir hatten in diesem kleinen Paradies, das sie sich nach einem reichen Arbeitsleben erschaffen haben Room 1 mit Ensuite und einem wunderbaren Ausblick auf die San Juan Berge. Das herrschaftliche Blockhaus liegt etwa zwei Meilen von Ridgway entfernt direkt am Highway 550 Richtung Montrose. Zum Frühstück gab es frischen Fruchtsalat, ein Muffin oder Brot und Kaffee. Wir fühlten uns wohl hier und haben in der frischen Bergluft herrgöttlich geschlafen.
    Wir bekamen viele gute Tipps.
    Leider hat das Wireless nicht funktioniert - freundlicherweise hat der Colorado Boy ausgeholfen.
    Thank you very much, Dick and M-E - and Daisy -, for the nice stay. We did like it very much.

  • Dick and M E were cordial and very accommodating hosts. They offer many suggestions of what to do in the area and are enthusiastic about their community and even a visitor's ability to participate in local events if desired. Their log home provides spectacular views of the nearby mountains and their property is alive with pets, llamas and several species of birds that flock to their yard. It was wonderful simply to sit in their dining area and enjoy nature both near and far. They have many interesting life experiences they are happy to share with their guests. The room and bath were clean and comfortable and they offer an upstairs living area for guests to share with the same magnificent mountain views. Breakfast is coffee, fruit, muffins and they are happy to fix omelets if desired. This is a great place to stay.

  • We had a delightful stay with M.E. and Dick. They greeted us as we drove in and responded to our last minute inquiries promptly. We were pleased with our upstairs king bedroom and bathroom. The morning view was stupendous of majestic snow-covered mountains ringing the valley. Our hosts have 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms upstairs, along with a communal sitting room for guests. There were no other guests at the time we stayed, but we could see how wonderfully it would fit a small family.

    Being Airbnb hosts ourselves, is it a delight to visit with other hosts and discuss our commonalities. We found Dick and M.E. to be interesting and very informative. We had great conversations and a lot of fun feeding the llamas. Don't hesitate in booking this place. The view is fantastic and so are the hosts. Being upstairs, gives you a glorious view and you won't feel like you are bothering your hosts, as they live downstairs.

  • Dick and M-E were just the sweetest. Their home is absolutely beautiful and the views were stunning! They are very hospitable and have everything clearly laid out. I thought they were the most ideal hosts as they perfectly balanced privacy and conversation. Airbnb hosts need to visit their home and take note! Thanks again for the wonderful stay!

  • Dick and ME were just the best. Their home is incredibly comfortable with spectacular views of the San Juans from every window. Very gracious hosts, full of inspiring stories from a lifetime of adventuring. They have been active in Ridgway and Ouray county for a long time, and their knowledge of the area is unbeatable. They gave us great recommendations for places to go and restaurants to eat at. I hope we make it back to Ridgway and Dick and ME's soon! It's a little slice of paradise!

  • There was a terrible blizzard and we could not make it down for the evening, but Dick and M-E are so gracious and will allow us to use the place for another evening at a later date! We can't wait!

  • Dick and M-E are wonderful people! I give my full recommendation. The room was lovely and the house is in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Say hello to the llamas for me! :-)

  • Dick and M-E were exceptionally warm hearted hosts. They accepted our last minute reservation easily. As beautiful as this property is, I recommend booking as soon as you can. Once the word gets out on this property, it might be difficult to secure. We stayed in the king size bed with adjoining bathroom. We woke up to the San Juan mountains and readily requested another night. Look no further for the best place to stay in Ridgway and the surrounding area.
