Ridgway house description

Ridgway's finest rental! Visit our quaint town and quiet home in Ridgway, Colorado. Nestled between Ouray and Telluride, Ridgway is the gateway to the San Juan Mountains, located at 6,985 feet. Our unique, in-town location offers the 'best of everything' at your finger tips. Enjoy the spectacular views while cooking, dining or relaxing in our comfortably, open home. The house is fully furnished with all the necessary amenities to dine in and watch movies, or grill outside and watch the wildlife. Our small town has a lot of character with plenty of opportunities for the adventurous tourist or those seeking stillness in nature.

Our home is a short walk from town, which contains restaurants, a grocery store, brewery and community park. Two blocks away is the Chipeta Resort and Spa which has a fitness center, hot tub and spa treatments available with a reservation. Across from the Chipeta are two brand new very nice public tennis courts, soccer fields and an amazing skateboard/bike park (please bring your own equipment for these). The town itself has weekly summer concerts and farmers markets (all within walking distance). Ridgway is a 15 minute drive from the scenic town of Ouray, 45 minutes from Telluride, and 30 minutes from the Montrose airport.

Some additional highlights of the area include easy access to hiking, four wheeling, horseback riding, hot springs, local rock climbing crags, climbing fourteeners, and over 20 miles of mountain biking trails. Ridgway State Park is located 10 miles from town and can be accessed via a paved biking trail or car. The park has three entrances that provide access to a swimming beach, boating ramp, fishing, camping and hiking. The Umcompahgre River runs through town with easy access to fly fishing and kayaking from the house. The nearby Divide Ranch and Golf Club offers breathtaking views of Mt. Sneffels, one of the tallest and grandest peaks in Colorado.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We are a young couple that enjoy spending time outdoors and traveling whenever our schedules allow. Keith owns a small guide service and spend his summers mountain guiding in the Alps. Krista is an elementary teacher and enjoys the benefit of having summers off.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ridgway:
                      We love Ridgway and our community. We have been living in town for the past four years, and appreciate the time we spend in this friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Ridgway is a small town with a BIG heart. We understand the value of taking a break from the daily routines, and due to the nature of our professions we leave during the summer to travel in Europe. We were fortunate to buy this property last year, and have put our heart and soul into fixing it up. We welcome others to enjoy 'our piece of rural solitude'

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our large, in town lot backs to open space with dramatic mountain views and wildlife watching. The scenery is captivating 24 hours a day!
