About This Listing
A fun cabin on a horse sanctuary. My horses range in age from 4 to 32. Some have been rescued from abusive situations. Some have worked hard in therapy programs and are retired now. All are very loving. I am an artist and a compassionate horse lover.
Art Studio/Cabin on a horse sanctuary. A very cozy 500 Square foot space with full bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and living room/dining room. Equipped with washer/dryer, shower and tub, and wi-fi. This cabin will accommodate 4 people, depending on sleeping arrangements. Original artwork hangs throughout the cabin. It is situated on horse property where senior horses roam the pasture. Lots of old trees on the property with a great view of the San Juans and Cimarron mountains. Chimney Peak and Courthouse Square clearly visible. Quiet area within walking distance to town. Or you may have use of the bicycle.
Cabin is very near the main house and within a few hundred feet of the stables and pasture. You can drive right up to the front door. Picnic tables are available with the Cottonwood Creek running by. Original artwork and western memorabilia decorate the cabin. Sofa bed in living room pulls out to a full size bed.
They can see the horses, but only with me. No wandering about.
Interaction with Guests
If the guests want interaction, I am available. I love to interact with the guests. But sometimes, they want their privacy...and I respect that.
This is a very quiet piece of property where deer roam free and several feral cats. Sometimes I have my horses walking around so I appreciate your quietly coming up the driveway with your car. There is NO SMOKING on the property and generally NO DRINKING. A nice glass of wine is okay. No parties. Definitely NO PETS....
The cabin was great! It was very clean and comfortable and in a great location to base ourselves to explore the area. Alice was a gracious host, too!
Our stay with Alice was wonderful, not only was she a welcoming host but also a kindred spirit dedicated to the care of her horses and sharing her knowledge and experience with others. Upon returning home we promptly found the nearest horse sanctuary to volunteer at.
The cabin was cozy, the beds super comfy, and Alice's art work brought warmth and color to the space. We would definitely stay again!
My experience at Alice's Airbnb cozy cabin exceeded my expectations! Her cabin is warm and quaint, clean and cheerful. Alice was an amazing host! She made me feel welcome right away and since I'm a horse lover too, we had a lot in common. She was gracious in teaching me about her world and I enjoyed every minute with the unique horses she owns! They are all so special and brightened my restful time there. Her cabin is walking distance to the cute town. At the end of a fun day exploring the beautiful areas of Ridgway, Ouray and Telluride, I was grateful to soak in the large tub at the cabin...there is even a washer/dryer if needed! Alice's lovely paintings of her horses are vibrant and decorated throughout the cabin. It was the perfect getaway and I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Thank you Alice! I will definitely return and wish it could be sooner. I highly recommend this airbnb stay!
Had a wonderful time staying in Alice's cabin. The space was perfect for our group of 3 - all the amenities you could want (cute mini kitchen, nice bathroom, laundry!, Alice's paintings adorning the walls), and it was so nice getting to visit with Alice and her dog Face, and meeting all the horses. Ridgway is a cute town, and between trekking out to neighboring locations to hike and explore (Ouray, Silverton, Telluride), we got to catch some of the local Ridgway artists at the Moonwalk event! Perfect place in the mountains for a little getaway!
About the Host, Alice
I am in my late 60s and am a horsewoman. I run a horse sanctuary....so I don't get to travel much myself. I am a quiet person and would like guests who are respectful of the equines on this property. I am also an artist and this property lends itself to a guest staying not only for a weekend, but also for a month to write, paint or play music. This sanctuary has alot of creative energy.
