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
Dick and M-E were very welcoming and the accomodations were very nice. The views from our room were stunning.
M-E and Dick are great hosts!! the house is perfect and absolutely beautiful. the room was cozy and spacious with wonderful view to the mountains. we really enjoyed our stay and had great conversations with M-E and Dick.
we highly recommend this place and if the flight wouldn't have been 19 hours away, we would definitely love to come back!
Dick and M-E were a great couple to stay with. We were really lucky to have had this opportunity to get to meet them. The rooms are beautiful and the view is magnificent. Couldn't recommend it more highly if available.
This was our first experience with Airbnb and I'm happy to say it was an excellent one. The accommodations were exactly as described. The location was perfect for our excursions in to the surrounding area. We were a little nervous upon arrival but our hosts, Dick and M-E made us feel like we were family that had just arrived for a reunion. They were warm, welcoming and immediately put us at ease. Their advice was spot-on perfect when it came to recommending activities to do in the area. We wouldn't have done the jeep tour if they hadn't suggested it and it was the highlight of our trip. Each morning we were treated to a colorful hot air balloon rising over the valley and descending in a nearby field. The views were spectacular and all surrounding areas easily accessible. We couldn't possibly do it all in one trip and will definitely return to Mt. View Acres and Dick and M-E's gracious hospitality in the future. Two HUGE thumbs up!
We arrived later than planned and were welcomed warmly by the hosts. The accommodations were very comfortable and pleasant, and our conversations with Dick in the morning were inspiring. They love this place on the earth -- and it shows!
