This location is very convenient to Ouray, Telluride, Montrose and the surrounding San Juan mountains. The town of Ridgway is just a few miles from our home and has a grocery store, restaurants and shops. With so many places to explore, you can start your adventures from here... No smoking please.

Please respect our home as you would your own. No smoking please. Sorry- no pets allowed.
Enjoy your home away from home on the outdoor sofa, at the table by the pond and waterfall, or in front of the fire.
The accommodations were just as described. Spectacular views and hosts were very hospitable!
Heather and Andrew have a wonderful place in Ridgway. We loved it so much that we hope to visit again! Very close to "town". Peaceful, great views of the mountain. Perfect loction to enjoy the outdoors. Wonderful hosts!
Heather & Andrew are such warm and welcoming hosts! The studio is charming, cozy and has stunning views into Ouray. The bed is so comfortable - best sleep in months, honestly! The location is a little off the main road, tucked behind a hill - perfect for nightly stargazing and spotting wildlife. A short drive into town offers a great little grocery store (healthy & organic) and awesome, healthy, fresh local eats. Eatery 66 is a must! My husband and I LOVED it here and plan visit again!
This was an all around outstanding experience. The apartment was great, very clean, well and thoughtfully stocked, with an amazing view of the San Juans.
We had a very nice chat with Andrew on the morning of our departure and overall Heather & Andrew were just very generous hosts.
Andrew & Heather also have just about the sweetest and friendliest dog ever, along with a very friendly and feisty kitten that came to greet us whenever we came home. Its little things like that that made the experience outstanding.
Thank you Andrew and Heather for making us feel at home in your gorgeous guesthouse. This was the first time I ever saw the Milky Way - and celebrated my dad's birthday in a very special place! We hope to be back :)
Communication with Heather was clear and simple. Directions are easy as their home is just a few miles from Ridgway. The location and views from the apartment can't be beat. Easy drive into town for food or restaurants, but we felt like we were far, far away from the highway. The apartment is cheerful, clean and well-equipped, although don't expect a TV. We appreciated the help of our hosts on several matters. They really do care. We loved the Peet's coffee in the cupboard--a real treat! Stay here--not in a local hotel--you won't be disappointed!
We really enjoyed our stay. The bed was really comfortable and the kitchenette was well-equipped. We spent lots of time on the patio by the pond, enjoying the incredible views from the garden as well as the beautiful wildflowers, butterflies, birds and wild rabbits. Our son thoroughly enjoyed the trampoline, teepee and vintage ride-on car. Thanks for your great communication and hospitality!
