About Anita and Frank Lambert
The mind blowing views from the Divide Ranch golf course will be jaw dropping as is the drive down Log Hill mesa. You will have incredible views of expansive Pleasant Valley and the Mt Sneffels range.
Anita and Frank Lambert purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Anita and Frank Lambert chose Ridgway
The cool summer breezes and unhurried lifestyle of the mountains will captivate you. After living in humid South Florida for almost 30 years, the mountains kept calling us back to savor its farmers markets and local produce and incredible views everywhere you look.
What makes this Cottage unique
Close by is public BLM land and the Ridgway State Park with its 1000 acre lake with camping, hiking, biking and fishing. Don't forget to look up Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and the Curecanti National Recreation Area which are 45 min - 1.5 hr away, east of Montrose. Enjoy boating, hiking, fishing and many other sightseeing opportunities. Check out the Box Canon in Ouray, 20 min away, the little 'Switzerland' of America. Ride the Silverton/Durango short gauge railway through the gorge and near Red Mountain Pass.

Relaxing Stay on the Edge
We spent the last week of July 2017 in the Enclave house in Log Hill Village. It is a very well designed cottage that is well equipped. The views from both decks are fantastic. The cottage is at 8000 ft, 1000 ft above Ridgway, and the weather in July is perfect for hiking with your dog and sitting out on the deck enjoying the mountains. Log Hill Village has an excellent set of hiking trails and the Ridgway Area Trails (RAT) has developed a set of trails for hiking and mountain bikes. Ridgway is a hidden jewel with a wide selection of restaurants including Costa Rican and Thai and of course the famous True Grit Cafe dedicated to John Wayne and the movie shot in and around Ridgway. Ouray, Montroase and Telluride are all close by with various outdoor activities, good shopping and all kinds of restaurants and coffee shops. All in all a perfect place for a vacation. Shopping is limited in Ridgway so it is best to stop and stock up at the City Market in Durango or the City Market or Safeway in Montrose.on the way to the house.
We are so excited that you loved the cottage's perfect location on the escarpment/edge of Loghill Mesa with its incredible views and too many activities to count in the San Juan Mountains! We hope you can come back to see us again and explore even more of the western slope. One can never get enough of the cool, fresh mountain air, especially the stargazing at night in the super clear skies! Many thanks for staying with us.
Fantastic Home in Beautiful Ridgway!
This home is a beautiful retreat for a couple or small family. Gorgeous views, wonderful owners who communicate through all of the planning and traveling and fantastic location, being close to everything, while still being away from it all. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will definitely be back!
So glad you had a fabulous time and enjoyed the unique location and serenity and mountain views from Loghill. Yes, you feel truly secluded up above the valley floor with the majestic San Juan Mtns framing your view! Hope you can come back to see us again soon!
Little slice of Heaven
We stayed there for the first sunny week in June 2015. Weather was perfect. This place is incredible. The views are unbelievable, the cottage is perfect, the location is close to so many things, Black Canyon of the Gunnison and Telluride are both about 45 mins away. Ridgway is the best kept secret in Colorado, great little town with fantastic restaurants. Best vacation ever!
We love the location and views too! It is the perfect place to stay to reach all the things to do in the area! We hope you can come back and stay with us again!
2 weeks on the edge
I stayed for 2 rainy weeks n may with my pooch. What a fantastic cottage on a high escarpment overlooking the valley. Views off both decks and all the comforts of home. 15 mins to Ridgway. Perfect. I didn't want to go home!! Only negative if you're busted up is the long flight of stairs that needs to be mentioned as you will go up and down at least 6 times a day if you have a dog that's the only way in or out!!
So glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope you can come back next year! Yes, we have a few stairs, but it is truly a 'stairway to heaven' with all the cottage's amenities and the incredible mountain views from both decks! It gets you in shape for all the inviting hiking trails the San Juan Mountains have to offer!
Seclusion without isolation
Perched high above Ridgway, surrounded by pinyon pines and junipers, there is plenty of privacy complemented with exceptional mountain views from the cottage and the property. It's an easy drive into Ridgway or Ouray for the amenities of town. The mountains are also easily accessed for all they have to offer. The cottage itself is very comfortable - no rustic cabin! It was very cozy for the two of us. We'll be back!
So glad you enjoyed your visit so much! We hope you can come back and visit again next year!
My husband and I came for a week long getaway. We had an absolute blast. The house was perfection. So comfortable in every way, wonderful layout. We enjoyed cooking every night on the patio and enjoying the panoramic mountain views. The second day we were there we put a Hummingbird feeder in the tree and saw a Black Chinned Hummingbird, that was a big highlight! Ridgway is such a quaint, fun town with great restaurants. Kate's Place and True Grit were excellent. The drive down Last Dollar Rd to Telluride was our favorite with incredible scenery, definitely God's Country. Thank you all so much for the hospitality, it is truly a magical place. You're caretakers were a pleasure to meet as well, very sweet, helpful people. Thank you & we'll be back and recommending to our friends and family!
We are delighted that you enjoyed the magical San Juans! Yes, those 4 wheel offroad trails are a thrill a minute and are a great way to get a different perspective of the mountains. Please come back and enjoy our cottage again! You are most welcome whenever we are available!
Golf close by at Divide Ranch and Club with spectacular mountain views and lovely clubhouse offering full bar and excellent cuisine! Ridgway State Park very close by, offers hiking biking and walking and camping.
