Secluded Ridgway Mountain Chalet with Dramatic San Juan Views:
Heated stone floors, granite counters, vaulted open-beam ceilings, works of art and a cozy wood stove come together to create your perfect getaway vacation.
This 1785 sf house on 5 acres is located atop Log Hill Mesa at around 8000' elevation. Sit back in the deck chairs and enjoy grand views of the Cimarron and Sneffles ranges of the San Juan Mountains in several directions. If you like your privacy then this is the spot for you. The house is off a quiet dead-end road and only 15 minutes from downtown Ridgway, 25 minutes from Ouray and 45 minutes from Telluride.
The house is very spacious with 3 bedrooms:
*Master bedroom has a king bed on the top floor with a private bathroom that includes sink/toilet/shower *2 guest bedrooms downstairs each with queen beds that share one bathroom with sink/toilet/tub/shower
There is new bamboo flooring that goes up the stairs into the master bedroom. The downstairs main room and bedrooms have warmed stone flooring with radiant floor heat for quiet comfort.
The house is very bright due to all the natural light from the windows/skylights.
There is a cozy wood pellet stove in the great room of the house to warm your bones on a cold night.
The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, utensils, plates, cups, etc. There is even a modest selection of spices too. The cook stove is natural gas so those who like to cook can do so with ease.
The living room is spacious with many comfortable leather chairs for just relaxing, reading, watching the satellite TV or viewing a movie. I have a number of DVD movies in my library from different genres to select from. There are also board games and a Sony Playstation.
There is a large deck that surrounds the rear of the house. It comes complete with comfortable deck chairs, table and chiminea for small cozy outdoor fires.
The house is environmentally green too as 80% of its year-round heating needs are provided by solar hot water panels with a natural gas boiler.
The house is cleaned with only green/environmentally friendly products.

About the owner: I have been in the vacation rental business for the past 7+ years. I am also a self-made handy man. I love the Ridgway/Ouray area for its natural beauty and the never ending supply of things to do outdoors. When I'm not taking care of my vacation rental I enjoy time cycling, reading or doing computer work.
Why the Owner Chose Ridgway: The Ridgway/Ouray area captivated me the very first time I visited the area more than 30 years ago. I now own this home in the area and there is something magical about it. I never get tired of the dramatic views off the mesa toward the San Juan peaks.
The Unique Benefits at this House: 5 acres of land surrounds the property and there are hiking trails right out your back door.
For the adventurous you can head down to our local hot springs just outside of Ridgway on the way to Ouray. Orvis is a wonderfully spiritual place that was used by the Ute Indians.
