We could not have enjoyed our stay at Dick and M-E's more than we did! They are the sweetest, most accommodating hosts I've ever experienced through Airbnb. M-E made delicious lemon squares and banana bread and Dick told us a lot of interesting facts about the area. Their house (which is super cozy) is in the perfect location and provides easy access to explore Ridgway, Ouray, Telluride and other surrounding areas. The view of the mountains is to die for! Hope to make our way back to Ridgway soon.
We had a wonderful time staying at Dick and M-E's beautiful home! The fall foliage, pretty hikes, soothing hot springs, and delicious food made for a great getaway! Dick and ME gave us many helpful suggestions, and made us feel at home! Daisy is the perfect greeter, and we also enjoyed watching the llamas out back! We can't wait to come back to see more!
ME and Dick were wonderful,,,very warm and welcoming and very fun to talk with...they have had a full and happy life with stories to prove it...their home exactly as expected with bonus of sweet dog Daisy and lamas...is your mama a lama (name of kids book brought to mind) and the dennis weaver memorial
