If you want to enjoy the Christmas spirit away from your home, this is the home away from home for you and your family! I left my home with its one tree only to find so many beautiful trees and decorations in Mark's home. I added our stockings to the mantle and the boys and I proceeded to enjoy cooking in the gourmet kitchen, building a snowman for the resident white tail deer to enjoy, watching a movie in the entertainment room and so much more. I was disappointed at first to find there was not a T.V. in the main room only to discover the entertainment was watching the wildlife all around you and interacting with your family in the main room and kitchen. I will go back to Ridgway to Mark's home again - looking forward to a spring or summer trip next.
Working with Mark was a total breeze! He was very easy to contact and so nice to talk to. His instructions for finding his beautiful home were easy to follow and access the house. The views from the house are absolutely stunning! I couldn't help but just stare from the living room to the gorgeous mountains and scenery. We even saw a few deer one evening! My husband and I and our four kids stayed for two nights and it was a nice way to end our family vacation from being in Telluride for 6 nights before.
The house was just what we expected and even better in some ways. The upstairs loft that looks out over the living room became an instant playroom for our older twin 4 year old girls. They loved going up there and calling down to us and giggling while playing with their princess toys. The movie room was really cool and had we stayed longer we might have used it. We actually ended up putting our 18 month old in a pack in play up there and it was the perfect place for her to sleep because it was dark and set apart from where most of the activity in the house happened. Another really neat thing about the house is that there were lights and battery operated candles that were on a timer and came on in the evening which gave the house a really warm glow.
The house itself is on a street with only one other house and both are on a hill overlooking Ridgeway and the beautiful mountains. It's very secluded and retreat feeling which we really enjoyed. Overall a great place to vacation and only a short distance to Ouray where we spent several hours driving around and touring. We would stay at this place again for sure!! Thanks Mark!
