Enjoy the peaceful, amazing views from the outdoor sofas or gaze at the Milky Way by the fire pit at night!
Relax and enjoy views of the San Juan mountain range from our cozy guest house. It is located a mile and a half from the town of Ridgway on a scenic and quiet county road. This studio apartment is above our detached garage and provides a private and relaxing place to unwind after enjoying the local area. The apartment has one bathroom and sleeps 5 comfortably. The kitchenette includes a microwave, toaster oven, mini fridge and a hot plate burner. A wood burning stove and balcony add to the ambiance and if you are in need of anything else, just ask.
The guest house has a comfortable queen size bed, a double futon, and in the loft is a queen mattress and a twin air mattress. We provide linens, towels, soaps and shampoos. We do not have a TV, so bring your computer and connect to our wi/fi. We have 2 mountain bikes, kids bikes, hiking books, a trampoline, a grill, tennis rackets, an outdoor dining table, an outdoor shower and a friendly dog all for your enjoyment. Bring your bikes and ride around our beautiful county roads and mountain bike trails or ride to town. We are within 10 miles of 2 beautiful hot springs for year round soaking. Just ask us for recommendations on hiking, skiing, camping or biking and we will point you in the right direction.
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.
Guests have access to our beautiful yard, our trampoline, the grill and our patio for dining. We also have a fire pit for our guests use as well. (assuming there aren't any fire bans in effect)
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.
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!
Drew met us when we arrived and was more than welcoming. He offered many hiking, running, and mtn biking recommendations along with age appropriate ideas for our boys. He also invited my husband to go on a ride the next morning and showed him the local mtb trails. The guest house was super clean with every detail thought out. We loved the location (very quiet but close to town). The views were amazing. And the property was so peaceful. Everything was top class and we felt like all our needs were provided for. Thank you!
My kids and I all agreed this was our favorite stop on our two week Colorado tour. The views were spectacular, the hosts were warm and friendly, the space was clean, comfortable, well-stocked and light-filled. Ridway ended up being a central spot for exploring both Ouray and Telluride. Thanks to Drew and Heather for sharing their home and offering ideas for activities in the area.
Drew and Heather's place is incredible. The view shown in the description is way better in person. Heather was extremely helpful and always available via text to provide recommendations or help. Drew gave our group some excellent recommendations for hikes and local restaurants to try, such as Kate's for breakfast and Eatery 66 for dinner! The fire pit was great at night to sit around and have some beers and look at the incredible night sky and stars. The location is great. About a 3 minute drive from Ridgway, 10 minute drive to Ouray, and about 40 minute drive from Telluride! Our group of 4 slept there comfortably and we immensely enjoyed our stay!
The property was just as advertised, it was beautiful and very clean, the area was beautiful too. the hosts were very friendly, we only met Andrew and he was very nice and helpful. They gave great tips on where to eat. we would love to stay again!!!
We were immediately greeted upon arrival. Place was spotless and was exactly as described and pictured in the photos. Their location just outside of Ridgway was the perfect balance between being near convenience and being away from town.
As we had arrived we met Andrew outside. He was very friendly welcoming us. He promptly prepared two books with hiking trail descriptions. The unit was very spacious and good decorated.
Everything there look as new. This studio had everything we need for our stay. The view from the window is great.
The place is a little outside of the city but pretty close to good restaurants and shopping. This location is a hiking paradise. We love it :)
