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
We enjoyed our stay with M. E, and Dick in their log house. The house is very comfortable and the view is magnificent. M. E. and Dick were fun to talk with over breakfast.
We had a very comfortable stay. M-E is a knowledgeable host with a warm and inviting home.
If you are looking for a comfortable bed, wonderful views of Mount Sneffles, bright, starry nights, and hosts that are a joy to visit with, then this is your place. Dick and M-E made us feel right at home. The king bed room we had upstairs was very private and quiet. The deck offered great views morning and night and is a great place to sip on a nice wine and watch the ever-changing face of the mountain ranges.
The room is clean, comfortable, quiet and beautifully decorated. We have our own living area at the second floor, good privacy! I am so happy and excited to see the llamas and deers so near the house. We were lucky to see the colorful hot air balloon rising and descending in the nearby field. And not to forget the awesome mountain view! This is definitely a very good place to stay if you would like to experience the real scenic stay in Colorado !
If you need a fabulous place to stay in the Ridgway/Ouray/Telluride area, you cannot go wrong with Dick & ME's home. Nice big bedrooms, comfortable beds & bathrooms, and a huge open common area with views of the mountains, all at a very inexpensive rate. And Dick & ME are wonderfully cordial...we talked to ME for a long time and fed her lamas with her. She felt like an old friend
Dick and M-E were amazingly gracious hosts. We were planning to stay only one night but inclement weather make our camping trip less desirable so we called M-E up and were able to get a room a night early. They greeted us with friendly smiles, showed us around the place and offered great restaurant tips. Our first night we stayed in their smallest rooms with 2 twin beds which was a great room with our own bathroom just down the hall. The next night we had a king size bed with an adjoining bath. Both mornings we were greeted with coffee and breakfast downstairs. Dick and M-E were great to talk to and the other guests were wonderful as well!
This was our first trip to Ridgway and we could not have picked better hosts. Dick and M-E are amazingly gracious and their property is a dream! Plus there's a sweet hiking and biking trail across the street.
