Ridgway cottage description

This unusual designer furnished 2 bedroom cottage above a 2 car garage has the most amazing views of southwest Colorado's San Juan mountains!

Located 1000 feet up above the valley of Ridgway, from the rear deck, the expansive views lead your eye toward Ouray, known as the little Switzerland of America and the Mt Sneffels mountain range.

From the second deck off the kitchen/nook, you have views over Log Hill Mesa and the Cimarron Range. Cool mountain breezes and a stone faced gas-fired fireplace will add much ambiance to your summer evenings.

Fully equipped kitchen with range, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher enable you to enjoy those special evenings at home. Downstairs there is a heated garage, laundry room and an extra den/sleep room designer furnished with two twin beds.

Close by are golf at the Divide Ranch and Club, and 15 minutes away is restaurants and shopping in the rustic town of Ridgway. Also take advantage of the Chipeta Lodge's spa and fitness facility in Ridgway.

Enjoy boating and fishing in the Ridgway Reservoir; walking, hiking, biking are close by, and the town of Telluride with its endless summer festivals and world class dining is less than an hour away.

In Winter Season, enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and excellent restaurants in Telluride's Mountain Village.

Please be our guest!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          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.
