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 offer the whole package. Their home is perfectly nestled into the vistas of Ridgway with a special charm that allows guests to feel at home.
Dick and M-E are the heart of the charm and at-home feel. They are warm, generous, and wonderful to talk to. The space was very clean, comfortable, and peaceful. The location was perfect to explore Ridgway, Ouray, and Telluride. All who have the opportunity to stay with Dick and M-E will surely wish to stay longer and return to visit again.
Dick and M-E were excellent hosts and we enjoyed our conversations with them. They made every effort to make us feel welcome. They have a beautiful home with stunning views. In addition to a spacious room and bathroom there was a common living room that led to an outdoor deck with gorgeous views of the San Juan mountains. We would definitely stay there again.
M.E. and Dick are fantastic hosts. Their property is absolutely the most beautiful AirBNB I have ever stayed at. Attention to details is obvious. Comfort and privacy was outstanding.
My only regret is that I didn't get to spend more time at this beautiful place
Nothing could be better to stay in the best room with best view. I wish to stay in Dick and M-E's house for the whole day just watching the Sanjuan mountains. Enjoy the morning conversation with the couple, could not ask for more.
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 have such a cool place. So interesting to breath, see, feel, hear and touch what Colorado has to offer on his acreage and in the area. Clean and accurate description of all amenities. A very pleasant and enjoyable experience with Dick and M-E.
Dick and M-E were there when we arrived, gave us the tour, and made good recommendations for local dining.
