About this listing

Come to our mountains and be spoiled! A comfy, quiet queen room with views of the San Juans. Our guests rave about the views, especially from our hot tub at night. Continental breakfast included. Our beds are super comfy with down pillows & duvets. Down-alternative pillows are an option if needed. Check out our 2nd listing as well! Please note: one of the private baths is located on the 2nd flr. & the other on the 1st).

The space

It is winter and we are closed until late May. Please check our calendar. This lovely timbered home is nestled at the foot of Log Hill Mesa at 7,000 ft. in the foothills of the dramatic San Juan Mountains, easily the most scenic area of Colorado. The home has 360 degree views of many fourteeners in the Cimarron Range and the Mt. Sneffels Range, plus lake and mesa views. The two available 2nd floor rooms are a queen and a somewhat larger room with twin beds and a private balcony. There is a private guest bath for each room (one of the baths is located on the 1st flr.) and a guest laundry. This listing is for the Mexican Queen room. Check out our 2nd listing at: True Grit Retreat-Spruce Room.

You are 1/2 mi. to Ridgway State Park offering boating, fishing, swimming, biking and camping. Only 10 mins. to town, 20 mins. to the old mining town of Ouray, and 45 mins. to Telluride Ski Resort. There is abundant hiking, jeeping, horseback riding, snowshoeing and X-country skiing only minutes from your door. Visit the Chamber website at: (URL HIDDEN) for more things to do.

Our rustic western town (where the film "True Grit" was made!) offers many dining options, a small grocery, a fine library, antique and retail shops, plus the restored Sherbino Theater offering movies and live musical entertainment. Did you know that Ridgway is the home of the Grammy Awards? They are handcrafted right here in town, and you can tour their workshop! We also have our own liquor distillery/pub, Trail Town Still, and The Colorado Boy Brew Pub, an award-winning brewer. There are two hot springs very close by; one is clothing optional:) Entertainment opportunities are myriad as this is a very artsy-fartsy community.

Whether winter or summer, come to our mountains and let us spoil you!

This was my first Airbnb experience and it was wonderful, I think they set the bar very high. The host Lysa was absolutely wonderful, she was kind, helpful, and facilitated a wonderful experience. She included a continental breakfast, encouraged us to make ourselves at home, and gave us great recommendations for restaurants downtown. The home is absolutely beautiful and the views are incredible. I would absolutely stay here again, it was a fantastic experience.

We had such a great time staying at Lysa and Don's! The house was very clean, beautiful, and wonderfully comfortable! They really go the extra mile to make you feel like you are staying in your own home. The location and views are top notch as well.

Even though you are staying in a room in someone else's home, it was very private Lysa thought of everything, and made us feel like old friends. The views and location are fabulous! We celebrated our anniversary and Lysa left us a bottle of wine! 5 stars all the way.

It was absolutely a charm to spend the weekend with Lysa in her beautiful mountain retreat. At every turn, she was helpful and cheery. I would stay here again anytime!

We had a truly amazing time at this lovely B&B! From start to finish, our hosts were charming and fun to chat with. The food was fantastic, the home is gorgeous and I already miss the spectacular views. We will definitely be back!

Lysa and Don were exceptional hosts. They reached out to us beforehand regarding any food allergies and served us two delicious breakfasts. They have a beautiful house with gorgeous mountain views. They also allowed us to use their Jacuzzi, which was much appreciated given that the Ouray hot springs was closed during our stay.

My husband & I are semi-retired and split our time between two residences. We are very active: skiing, biking, hiking, walking. We love the arts & enjoy the opera and theater in Tampa as well as museums. We are very social people and love to share our homes with new friends. Lysa (Elizabeth) is an adventurous cook, always looking for the next best recipe. Don loves to advise guests on what to see and do. It would be our pleasure to host you in the manner that suits, whether it be personal attentiveness or just letting you kick back and find your own way.
