Dick and M-E are wonderful, welcoming people. We arrived, and had a pleasant visit with Dick, who told us everything we needed to know about our room The photos don't do it justice! Everything is beautiful and immaculate, wonderful original art and decorative pieces that reflect Colorado and the West.
When M-E returned from a trip to town we had a lovely visit with her, as well. She offered us any help with local activities, and great information about the best places to go for the Fall color. They provided fruit and banana bread for our breakfast, coffee upstairs and down!
The rooms are all upstairs, and the sitting area had some spectacular views of the San Juan Mountains.
We felt completely at home, very welcome and comfortable. The room was quiet, and with the window open to the night air and the sound of the river right next to the property, we slept soundly!
I agree with the other reviews, Dick and M-E are excellent hosts! Their house is really nice and the view from the property is amazing, everything was as described. We visited the area to see the famous fall foliage and to do some off-roading and we couldn't have picked a better place. It was gorgeous! We'll definitely be visiting again, it is that nice!
Dick and M-E were great to meet and get to know. They offered a warm welcome and made me feel like I was visiting family I don't get to see to see often enough. The room and accommodations were very comfortable and as described - great location to launch day trips into the mountains. This was my first Airbnb experience and it was well worth it. Beautiful home in a great location.
This was one of our first AirBnB experiences and Dick and M-E did a wonderful job of making us feel right at home. They are the kind of people who melt your heart. They are super sweet and their dog Daisy is also very sweet. Daisy would run upstairs to greet us every morning and then after saying hello she would go back downstairs. Dick and M-E also provided us some great dining suggestions in the area and recommended a jeep tour in Ouray instead of the Durango train for next time. Some places they suggested in Ridgway for dining are Colorado Boy which is a local pub that has artisan pizza, yummy salads and fresh brewed beer for a very low price! Kate's Place was also a delicious restaurant for breakfast. The house and photos definitely lived up to our expectations and this couple was a delight to talk too! It just felt like home and well...there's no place like home! ;)
Dick & M-E were very warm and friendly hosts. The house and property were far more beautiful than we expected. The rooms are very private. The views are stunning. Location was just right. We would stay here again in a heart beat.
Thanks for sharing your home with us Dick and M-E and a big thank you for sharing your stories over breakfast!
Dick and M-E are amazing hosts and there place is not only comfortable, but well located - the view of the mountains for the deck is breathtaking. They are friendly and very interesting to talk with - amazing stories of entrepreneurial and world-travel adventures. I love Ridgeway and will hope to stay with them again!
Dick and M-E couldn't have been more gracious hosts. Gave us great tips about the area. Their home and space for their guests was beyond our expectations, as it included a separate living space for guests with a fabulous view of the mountains. Highly recommend and would definitely return.
