Beautiful and Cozy Modern Home

  • 5 of 5

Carrie was an outstanding host: very communicative and informative. The home was extremely cozy and kept up! There was no issue accommodating our large group. And location was great as well, only a 40 minutes drive to Telluride! Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful home in ridgeway Colorado

  • 4 of 5

The home is beautiful – great cabin Feel decorated with a clean look and perfect for a large family retreat. Easy walking access to the town. Beautiful views!!!

Only thing I would suggest is bringing some kitchen appliances with you as the pots and pans and knives are quite outdated/not useful.

Also the water heater doesn’t seem big enough for the master bath upstairs.

About a 10 minute drive to Ouray - quite easy.

Works for us, Overall !

  • 4 of 5

There was an obvious rodents issue. They got into all our food in the kitchen. Was not as clean as usual. But overall, the house and location works well for us.

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 nights at the Dream Mountain Retreat. The house is beautiful. Spotless. Interior design is professional grade. Views of the mountains are amazing. Hosts were a pleasure to work with. Well worth the cost.

Beautiful home with amazing views. Great for large groups and outdoor activities.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for my extended family which we have never done and was not quite sure how it would turn out. This place was perfect as it had more than enough beds and everyone had somewhere to sneak away and relax. We were lucky enough to be there in Friday when the Farmers Market was being held and absolutely loved the town of Ridgway. We also went to the Divude Golf Course which is near the house and the scenery was gorgeous. This was honestly one of the best house rentals I have rented...worth every penny.
