Placerville chalet description

Only 1/2 hour drive to Telluride's endless festivals, this light, bright custom designed 2000 sq foot cottage which sleeps 4-6 persons, is located on 35 acres, just 18 minutes from Ridgway off highway 62 on the way to Telluride.

Home to varied wildlife, it lies at approximately 8500 ft elevation amongst aspen groves and ponderosa pines. Watch the deer and elk through the spacious windows, and relax on the deck with a cool drink and watch the skies glow while the sun goes down behind the mountains. You will enjoy the 70 degree temps and cool mountain air in the summertime!

If you climb up 300 feet behind the house, you will experience amazing views of the end of the Mt Sneffels mountain range.

Ridgway is the northern entrance of the scenic San Juan Skyway, an All-American Road, which serves as a crossroad for commerce, transportation, history and scenery. The San Juan Skyway, one of the most spectacular roadways in the U.S., winds through unmatched scenery — it is a photographer’s dream.

Nestled in the picturesque Uncompahgre Valley and surrounded by majestic snow-capped peaks of the Cimarron and San Juan Mountains, Ridgway is the “Gateway to the San Juans.” The movies True Grit and How the West was Won were both shot in the area.

There are many activities for families to enjoy while they are in the area:
Historic/scenic driving, walking, hiking, biking, river rafting, kayaking, ATV and 4x4 jeep touring, hot balloon adventures, horseback riding, hot springs soaking, rock climbing, tennis (in Ridgway Town Park), golfing (The Divide Ranch and Club on Log Hill), in addition to camping, boating, fishing and walking in Ridgway State Park. Visit Mesa Verde National Park cliff dwellings; also take in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison with its spectacular canyon views and cool Gunnison River waters just east of Montrose.

Additionally, Telluride offers festivals almost every weekend of the summer season. Telluride has four waterfalls, high-altitude mining towns, the highest concentration of 14,000-ft. peaks in North America and the most high-altitude passes.

Colorful hiking includes fields of wildflowers that begin to bloom in June and peak in July, with yellows, reds and burnt orange color in late September and early October.

We offer full concierge services in summer and winter and would be delighted to arrange airport transfers, horseback riding, river rafting, guided hikes/walks, mountain biking, private chef, butler/home stocking services; in winter we offer concierge services to arrange ski/snowboard equipment rental fittings AT YOUR HOME, ski/snowboard instruction, snowmobiling, dogsledding, etc., etc.

                      Only 25 minutes to Divide Ranch & Club's 18 hole golf course with incredible San Juan vistas and very cozy clubhouse with full kitchen!

                      The wildlife is abundant here. Deer and elk make this property their home; you will hear the coyotes across the way when they are ready to feast! Sometimes you will see eagles, turkeys, and grouse or less frequently bobcat, porcupine and bear are seen. Wildflowers abound in the summer and springtime.

                      The Autumn colors are truly a wonder with reds, gold and oranges.

                      You can hike and bike right out the front door on trails and dirt roads around the house; below the house, the Whiskey Charlie county trail (4.8 miles) leads you along the abandoned railroad grade to Brown Ranch.

                      Mountain bikes can be rented in Ridgway/Telluride; hike on the National Forest trails with access from many of the neighboring roads.

                      Check out the hot springs in both Ouray and near Ridgway. And don't forget to let the stars awe you at night from the deck!

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: As a custom home builder and interior designer, we chose this incredible mountain location as a getaway from the city and traffic of SW Florida. The only traffic you run into here is elk across your road and driveway! Ouray County has one sole traffic light and Telluride has none!! We so much appreciate being the single residence on our own 35 acre parcel in the 300 acre subdivision named Sky Mountain Ranch! The aspens individual green leaves 'quake' in the summertime and provide cool breezes and shade. There are so many outdoor activities close by - visit summer farmers' markets; go whitewater rafting, hiking, mountain climbing, biking, kayaking on rivers and Ridgway Reservoir and golfing at the Divide Ranch & Club or The Bridges or Cobble Creek in Montrose or Devil's Thumb in Delta, CO.

                      Why the Owner Chose Placerville:
                      We chose this location as it is only 18 minutes to Ridgway and 1/2 hour to Telluride. There are so many outdoor activities close by - in winter enjoy Telluride's world class skiing and snowboarding and snowmobiling. In summertime, visit the open air farmers' markets; go 4x4 offroading, whitewater rafting, hiking, mountain climbing, touring and biking, kayaking on rivers and boating at Ridgway Reservoir and golfing at the Divide Ranch & Club or be our guest at Cornerstone - a Greg Norman mountain course, voted #1 in new mountain golf courses by GOLF magazine.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      Peace and serenity, cool mountain breezes, country cafes and summer open air concerts will draw you back year after year!
