I had a restful time in a beautiful location with my hosts Dick and ME. They have a gorgeous setting convenient to Ridgway, and then on to Ouray, Silverton, or Telluride. A wonderful weekend in the mountains!
Dick and M-E were very accommodating with our needs, despite the fact that we brought a truck, trailer, two motorcycles, AND rented a Jeep while we were there. The accommodations were accurate and as advertised. Dick was very informative about the history of the area, and M-E even took us on a tour of a very unique place in Ridgway!
Beautiful views and home! Sweet hosts very dedicated, nice and informative! Loved the decor!
Dick and M-E were wonderful hosts. They always had great recommendations for the area and awesome stories to tell. Their home is beautiful and the view is spectacular. Dick and M-E were so welcoming and it was hard to say goodbye! I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Ouray/Ridgway area who wants a true Colorado experience.
Dick and M-E made me feel at home from the moment I arrived. Extremely nice people.... I shared my travels with them, and they shared their life experiences... Coffee, baked goodies, and fresh fruit made for an excellent morning before departing.... Hope to return sooner than later... Blessings Always.....
Dick and M-E were wonderful hosts. We enjoyed visiting with them and staying in their amazing home. Breathtaking views, large rooms, a gorgeous 4 acres to explore. Would stay again in a heartbeat. They have a cute little dog named Daisy who was a great host to our 13yo lab who was traveling with us. Can't wait to visit Dick and M-E again!!
