"excellent stay in this beautiful mountain home with great views of surrounding peaks. last week in September, we saw the viewable peaks dusted with snow every night. neighbor's dog Riley a fun companion in the back yard (he stays on other side of fence), as we sat out in nicely cool weather, enjoying coffee in the AM and cocktails in the PM. ladies loved the fiber festival with live sheep on Saturday in Ridgway Fairgrounds. many perks. only drawbacks were in-house temp control and not being permitted to use outdoor fireplace (minor inconveniences)"Guest: jrbartlettjr Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 4, 2014View listing
"We stayed a week for spring break. We were very comfortable with lots of room to spread out, relax, cook, and enjoy the beautiful setting. The home is very well equipped with anything you need. One of the best views you could find, majestic mountains, beautiful valley filled with wildlife. We enjoyed the nearby skiing, hiking, hot springs, and dining. A great place to vacation! The photos do not capture the beauty. We hope to visit again soon."Guest: Cindy Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: April 2, 2014View listing
"My husband and I spent a week in this beautiful home away from home. Everything was very neat and clean. I would highly recommend a stay here. Our main goal on the trip was to relax and view the scenic beauty of Colorado. We were not disappointed. A special treat at our cabin/home was the parade of deer that walked past our deck every morning. Our dealings with Marsha could not have been more pleasant. I felt as if I was talking on the phone to an old friend. We jeeped the Colorado "rocky" mountain trails and visited the site where John Wayne had his final shoot out in "True Grit". The Aspens were gorgeous at that time of the year. I can only imagine the winter here with snow on the ground and a fire in the stove. If you are trying to decide on a place to stay, look no further. We definitely plan to go again."Guest: Melinda and John Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: November 10, 2014View listing
"Four of us traveled to Ridgeway from the Colorado Springs area to view the fall colors and do some fall kayaking. This home with the floor to ceiling windows overlooking Mt. Sneffles and the mountain range was so relaxing that one of our days we chose to stay home and enjoy the solitude and breathtaking beauty. During our time there we heard Coyotes talking to each other, Elk bugling and Turkey's passing through. On our last morning there we saw about 12 Elk walk across the meadow. Michael was a wonderful host and was available by phone if needed. Anyone looking for a peaceful and beautiful place to spend time should consider this property!"Guest: Sally Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 30, 2014View listing
Ridgway Travel Tips
Escape to the San Jan Skyway With Ridgway Vacation Rentals
Find yourself immersed in the natural beauty of this area by booking Ridgway vacation rentals. In 1891, Robert M. Ridgway established this town in Colorado as a railhead center for the Rio Grande Southern. Located in the Uncompahgre Valley at an altitude of just under 7,000 feet, the town became a crossroad for travel and commerce, servicing the surrounding areas of Ouray and Telluride. Today the town remains the northern gateway to the scenic San Juan Skyway, an All-American Road offering sweeping vistas and scenery.
Visit Movie History With Ridgway Lodging
If you want to experience Old West charm, Ridgway is the place to go. It offers conveniences and activities like jeeping, golfing, and rafting, but it has maintained a slower pace than other areas in the state. The movies "True Grit" and "How the West Was Won" were filmed in and around Ridgway Park. The town hosts a memorial park for Emmy award-winning actor William Dennis Weaver who appeared in "Gunsmoke," NBC's "McCloud," and Steven Spielberg's "Duel."
