Recent Southwest reviews

  • Great Value and Conveniently Located!

    "We loved our stay in this condo. It is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen has the necessary tools to cook what you want, and the ice maker in the fridge came in very handy to fill our cooler each day. The couches are very comfortable and soft after a long day 4 wheeling and/or hiking, so that was nice, as was the cable TV and included wi-fi. The condo is located very conveniently in Ridgway and was perfect as our base of operations for this trip! We arrived in Ridgway on a HOT day - It was 85 degrees outside - and the thermostat said 87 degrees inside. The listing does not mention air conditioning, and I assumed that it was included in this otherwise modern and lovely condo. It turned out NOT to have A/C. We were able to keep it a little cooler by opening the windows and sliding door and using the ceiling fans, but you may want to keep that in mind when booking. Overall, it was a very nice unit, and an excellent value. We will book here again!"

  • As Good As It Gets

    "We've stayed here multiple times and my only hesitancy at recommending this cabin is there will be more competition next year. It is located in one of the most dramatic spots in Colorado, just below Red Mountain Pass and just off 550. (You can hear louder road traffic.) In the summer, when we have stayed, the marshy meadows around the cabin are covered in wild flowers. Waterfalls cascade down the sides of the peaks. Inside is as comfortable as you could want for a solar-powered, off-the-grid cabin above 10,000 feet, with far more room than you'd expect. The front bedroom has a new, very comfortable king bed. The queen bed in back shares the room with a piano. Our family of 4 has never had to use the upstairs bunkroom, which could sleep another 4. The kitchen has a good gas stove and modest-sized fridge, plenty of utensils, pans etc. There's a gas grill on the back deck and a nice, hot shower and bath in the bathroom. We used the cabin as a base for mind-blowing hikes (Ice Lake is just down the road); as the world's best backyard where our kids can play or watch hummingbirds, rabbits and deer; and just as a place to hang out, reading books or magazines and gaping at the peaks through the window. (As a bonus, the cabin is well-stocked with skiing and other outdoor magazines.) Be aware that it is not a luxury property; you will have to haul your trash to a dumpster in Silverton, a 10-minute drive away. There's a washing machine (broken last time we visited) but no drier so at a minimum you will have to air dry clothes or wash them in Silverton. Get your groceries in Durango or Montrose while driving in. But none of that matters when you're at the cabin, watching the stars come out over the peaks after another perfect alpine day."

  • Wonderful stay

    "We stayed at the Sopris Cabin for 4 days, while skiing at crested butte. Skiing not so good this year, but we loved Sopris. It is a great location for getting everywhere and the cabin is very well equipped. Only one suggestion, it would be nice to be able to get more channels on the tv. We will be back"

  • Fantastic Home & Location

    "Crested Butte was the location for our yearly ski trip this time and the Totem house accommodated my group of 9 easily. The house is beautiful and fit everyone and our ski/snowboard gear perfectly. The main level was very spacious allowing us to cook a big breakfast each morning while many sat at the counter and socialized. There are two massive fridge/freezer units in the kitchen along with all the cookware you need. Plenty of windows to view the spectacular scenery this wonderful area has to offer. The location couldn't be beat - A short walk to Elk and the free ski shuttle. Once we stocked up on supplies we didn't have to drive the entire stay. Excellent for enjoying some Aprés Ski. The property management company was a breeze to deal with and their communication was superb. I would rent again without hesistation."
