About The Owner

My family has been coming to Ridgway for over 40 years! We love to get-away from our lives cities to be in the sunlight, air and incredible mountains of the area! Sometimes we come for family time, sometimes time with friends. We wish we could be there more often...but now we can share it.

The Owner purchased this house in 1960

Why The Owner chose Ridgway

Ridgway is a perfect location : private enough to keep it a little bit secret, but close to Telluride, Ouray, Durango, Montrose and the majestic San Juan Mountains. There is hiking, biking and skiing for all levels. There are public hotsprings for families and private springs for couples. Telluride offers a film festival, music festivals and some of the best skiing in the world! My grandfather found the house in the 1960's and we've loved the area ever since!

A GREAT stay !

  • 4 of 5

My family had a great time on our CO vacation. The Blue House was centrally located to all our destinations and was a wonderful place to stay. The kitchen had all we needed for home cooked meals. Ridgway was a nice town and we really enjoyed looking at all the True Grit landmarks and watching the movie on the DVD at the house. We found the field where John Wayne (aka Rooster Cogburn) had the gunfight against the 4 outlaws. Highly recommend this location. The caretaker nextdoor was also very nice & accommodating.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the stay and your time in Ridgway. Thanks for the great review. And I'm delighted that you watched True Grit and took in the sights. My grandfather was a (small) extra in the movie and we love to find his face in a crowd scene each time we watch. Come again!

Possibilities within the region while staying at sweet place.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it.

Nice house.

Lots of opportunities within the region (hiking, swimming, drives, etc.).

Town is not overrun with tourist but still has a lot to offer. John Wayne would have know (True Grit was filmed in the town park).

Very cute and roomy house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my wedding weekend- the house was great for multiple girls to get ready in as well as a great mini-escape for my husband and me afterwords. You can walk anywhere in Ridgway, but the house also has everything you need. Loved it!

Owner's Response: So glad our house worked well for such a special event! We're happy to have played a small part of a big moment. Congratulations to you both. And since you're local, if you're ever looking for a mini anniversary escape, the house will be here!

Lovely New Years Respite

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed staying at this comfortable house in the town of Ridgway. Everything one might need. Comfy bed, zoned hot water heat, a cozy gas stove, hot water, and a fully equipped kitchen. Communication with the host and property manager went smoothly, and we'd stay there again.

Ridgway home renal

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the little blue house! The house is nicely decorated, updated, and it felt homey and cozy.

We ate many meals outside on the patio....so quiet and enjoyable! The house had everything we needed. We didn't want a big touristy town, and really enjoyed the laid back, small town feel of Ridgway.

We walked almost everywhere in town from the house and really enjoyed the peacefulness. It was an easy drive to many gorgeous places that we wanted to visit.

We would rent here again when we return!

My Dad and I stayed at this lovely mountain home for the Telluride Bluegrass wknd. This was a treat! Very comfortable and quite. We loved the private backyard with nice patio for morning coffee. The space was super accommodating to all of our needs. We will be back again next summer. Nothing negative to say about this place, we loved it.
