Interaction with Guests
We love talking with our guests. But if they want peace and quiet we respect their wishes.
The view of the San Juan Mountains from our deck is awesome. We are right on the bicycle/walking trail and only 2 miles from the town of Ridgway.
This is rural Colorado. A car is needed to get around here.
We are smoke Free. We do not have a separate house entrance but our front door is right by the stairway to the second floor. If you come in late or leave early, we will never hear you.
You are welcome to bring your well behaved, friendly dog. We charge $5 per night and require a $100 refundable damage deposit
Warm and inviting, M-E and Dick welcomed us into their home and lovely yard where we enjoyed fantastic views of the Uncompagre and conversation. Sweet llamas and a bag of catnip for our cat along with a scrumptious fruit plate and muffins they sent us off for the long drive back to Denver.
Dick and M-E were there when we arrived, gave us the tour, and made good recommendations for local dining.
This place is a gem! It's a beautiful log home & centrally located for exploring the area. So much to see, so much to do. We wish we had more time here. Dick & M-E are very gracious host, offering great stories & wise recommendations about the area. We are traveling on motorcycles from Santa Cruz, CA. We definitely recommend this place. - Sue & Gordon
Our stay with M.E. and Dick went beyond the description of the posting. A true gem.
Priceless, Priceless, Priceless.
Dick and M-E: They are wonderful folk. They are very beautiful humans who share their knowledge freely about their lives and location. They give great hugs and are not invasive but available.
The place: The house is a lovely log cabin style 2 story space. The grounds are wonderful: lots of beautiful, lush trees, hummingbirds, and pond all surrounded by a sprawling mountainscape. Also, 2 awesome llamas linger around the property. You can feed them, too!
There is plenty of parking in front. Make sure to bring OFF! because the mosquitoes are aggressive in the mountains.
Living room with balcony: We didn't have a problem with privacy although that room is communal; only ran into our neighbors twice. We were also out and about though as is everyone else. Ouray is close and amazing. There is a mini fridge as well to store leftovers and such!
Balcony is perfect. The view of the stars must be seen! Our friends were married in Ridgway. 5 minute drive to downtown where ceremony took place. We got back home from the wedding, changed, and drank some bourbon under the stars. You can actually see the galactic dust which is rare!!! We should be able to see this many stars everywhere, period but need to change light pollution problems in the cities. Give yourself this right, go to Ridgway, CO and sit on Dick and M-E's balcony :)
Their area is located downstairs so it is still private since the accommodations are all upstairs.
The room: We stayed in the King Bed with en suite bathroom. The bed is really nice and comfy. Not too hard or too soft. The room and bathroom are nicely sized. The price is well worth it!!
Dick and M-E: Hope you enjoyed our entry in the guest book!! :D We thank you for everything. Xoxo.
We had a beautiful stay in Ridgway at Dick and M-E's home. They were incredibly generous to lodge us despite a family emergency, making sure we had everything we needed. The room was lovely and the bed was so comfortable. We actually woke to the hot air balloon and it was a stunning experience!
