I am an artist and a compassionate/passionate horse lover. Want to hang out with the horses? Let me know. You'll find it the best part of your day.
Want to "Hug A Horse" Spend a half a day learning to communicate with them? All of this is possible here at Thunder Heart Haven. Talk to me privately about this option while you are visiting here in Ridgway.
Enjoy the snow...Great hiking.
Great for a weekend get a way. Renew your energy in this mountain place.
Peaceful 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 incredible bath 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.
This cabin is an old cabin and sometimes a small field mouse might find himself in the cabin. The cold weather drives the mice in. No worry, There are traps just in case. The cabin is plenty warm.
Guests are welcome to visit the horses (only with me) and even to enjoy feeding them with me. I feed at 8:30 in the morning and at 4:30 in the evening.
Traveling with your horses? I can host them as well. Contact me ahead of time regarding the horse motel.
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….
Please leave the cabin as neat as possible when you leave and put things back where you found them. Broom and dust pan behind bathroom door. Towels leave in a pile in the bathroom and sheets in the bedroom. Do not wash towels and sheets. Trash and recycled items may be left outside by front door.
I am in my late 60s and am a horsewoman. I run a horse 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.
