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. This cabin is perfect for a very creative person who would like to spend a month in the mountains to paint, write or compose music. Original artwork and western memorabilia decorate the cabin.
Two single beds in the bedroom can be pushed together for a cozy sleeping area for a couple. Sofa bed in living room pulls out to a full size bed.
Arrangements to learn about horses or ride is available for extra fees.
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. No pets.
Alice's Horse Sanctuary was amazing! We had a very short time and it snowed, but the cabin was so warm and cozy and the surroundings were beautiful! We ran out of time to really meet the horses, but I am now anxious to go back again and again. Everything was perfect and Alice was a perfect host too! Don't miss the opportunity to stay here, you'll be happy you did.
Alice is a wonderful host. She is extremely responsive with communications and offers information regarding local attractions and to do's. She, her cabin and her property are full of warm welcoming energy that I'm looking forward to being around again soon!
Alice and her home was amazing. My girlfriend and I spent Valentine's Day weekend at her lovely Cabin. The cabin, property, horses, llamas, deer and cats were all inviting!
Alice was ready to greet us and was incredibly accommodating the entire time on the property. She gave us a great tour and even let us brush, feed and play around with the horses(mainly Gus, who is a puppy in a horse body).
The property and surrounding area is absolutely stunning! Go to Orvis Hot Springs one night and sit in the springs under the stars, if you get a chance.
We will be staying again with Alice as soon as we can come back!
The cabin was great. Definitely cozy, but still plenty of room. The bedroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen are all basically open to each other - no doors between them. The description is accurate, and Alice was very welcoming. I definitely recommend it!
Alice is a very nice woman and the horse property was authentic. Great base-camp for the surrounding areas including Silverton, Red Mountain Pass. Perfect size for 2, but does sleep 4. Cozy, warm and homey. Tucked away in a very quiet part of Ridgway yet close to all of the amenities of the town such as shops & restaurants.
Great little cabin - "artsy" as described! Alice is great, the place is great, the location was great - we had a wonderful time!
We had a wonderful time in this charming and well-appointed cabin in Ridgway. Alice was a kind and welcoming host, allowing my daughters (ages 5 & 7) to meet, feed, and groom her gentle horses. The area is incredibly beautiful, with lots to do for families. We visited Ridgway State Park, went sledding down Vinegar Hill in Ouray, and soaked in world class hot springs. It was a great visit, and we are certain to visit Alice and her wonderful horses (and llamas and deer and cats!) again this spring.
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.
