Lovely mountain cottage!
Lovely mountain cottage!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this quiet cottage atop the mesa. The views of the San Juans and Cimarron Mountains was breathtaking! My favourite place was the deck that overlooks the valley and town of Ridgway. I met a number of people in the neighbourhood while out walking my dog. People were very friendly. A lovely mountain getaway!

We loved this mountain getaway! The views were amazing and the location is semi-remote, which we greatly appreciated. Ridgway is situated right near Telluride and Ouray but a much better price. The house has a bedroom and living area upstairs with two great decks. Appreciated features and amenities included a garage, upgraded kitchen and bathroom, laundry facilities, pet friendly, plenty of kitchen supplies, satelite TV and it was clean. The owners were pleasant to work with and the caretaker was more than accomodating. We would highly recommend this place for any couple wanting to get away from it all.

Quiet, charming, great views

If you want a little quiet, solitude, great views and a comfortable rental, this place is for you! It has one bathroom and a spacious bedroom with a king bed, so it's best for couples or small families. The twin beds are downstairs off the garage, so OK for older kids only in my opinion. The views off both decks are lovely and at night, it is so dark and peaceful! A great place for a romantic getaway in Ridgway, our favorite town in all of Colorado!

We hope you can come back and see us again soon! We are impressed that Ridgway is your favorite town in all of Colorado! Please let the Chamber of Commerce and Town of Ridgway know aboutgyour vote!
My husband and I stayed for 1 week and we really enjoyed your cozy cabin. We loved the interior design along with the beautiful views and quiet surroundings. The sunrises and sunsets were wonderful from every room. The washer/dryer is also a great addition for longer stays. It's nice to be able to pack less and wash while away. Also nice to have a full kitchen and cook "at home".

Great little cottage with an AWESOME view. Remote, but easy access to Ouray and Montrose. Cottage was clean and well stocked with kitchen supplies and linens. I would definitely visit again.

Owner response: So glad to hear you enjoyed the perfect getaway! Views are definitely out of this world and cool evenings on the porch or inside with the cosy living room with its fireplace are to die for! We hope you can come back again -- thanks very much for visiting us!
Beautiful "cottage". Much more than a cottage. Isolation, solitude and wonderful views from the decks. The owners are most accommodating and helpful and we would highly recommend this vacation spot!

About the owner: The mind blowing views from the Divide Ranch golf course will be jaw dropping as is the drive down Log Hill mesa. You will have incredible views of expansive Pleasant Valley and the Mt Sneffels range.
Why the Owner Chose Ridgway:
The cool summer breezes and unhurried lifestyle of the mountains will captivate you. After living in humid South Florida for almost 30 years, the mountains kept calling us back to savor its farmers markets and local produce and incredible views everywhere you look.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Close by is public BLM land and the Ridgway State Park with its 1000 acre lake with camping, hiking, biking and fishing. Don't forget to look up Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and the Curecanti National Recreation Area which are 45 min - 1.5 hr away, east of Montrose. Enjoy boating, hiking, fishing and many other sightseeing opportunities. Check out the Box Canon in Ouray, 20 min away, the little 'Switzerland' of America. Ride the Silverton/Durango short gauge railway through the gorge and near Red Mountain Pass.
