About Owner/Property Manager

Darlene and I are true locals having grown up in Ouray and Ridgway.

We spent our early married years in the Denver area and after 10 yrs. decided that we wanted to leave the fast paced urban lifestyle and return to a more tranquil mountain setting. Ridgway was the perfect choice.

We have been knocking around the southwest for 30 years now and have extensive knowledge of SW Colorado and also Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.

We are people oriented and enjoy sharing our knowledge of the hidden gems of the southwest with others.

As much as we love the natural beauty of the area we also feel lucky to live in a community with a very diverse mix of great people.

We wake up every day thankful for where we live.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this studio in 1992

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Southwest

We purchased this property in 1990 when we discovered it located in the old historic residential district of Ridgway. It had never been built upon and had old growth trees and shrubs throughout. We knew that it would be perfect for a private cottage style home to be situated on .

The grounds have nice areas for lounging, reading or cocktails. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe with little traffic.

We are located 2 blocks from the Historic Business District which includes Kates Resturant (voted #1 in Ridgway) 2 blocks from The Colorado Boy Brewpub, well known for it's great brews and Pizzas and is a spirited locals hangout. Also close by is the new Sherbino Theatre being renovated for film and live music.

What makes this studio unique

We are located 45 minutes from Telluride and its world class ski area. Telluride is also known for its year round festivals. Bluegrass, Blues & Brews, Jazz and Film to name a few.

Ouray Colorado 'The Switzerland of America' is 15 minutes south and has fantastic hiking, biking, ice climbing and soaking in it's hot springs pool. The outdoor activities are endless in this area. Come and enjoy.

Beautiful, historic, charming small town

We enjoyed this lovely and well-designed little cottage and it even has your own garage space below. Bob, the property owner, pointed us to out of the way places where we found gorgeous scenery very nearby. He told us some of the history of the house, which made it even more special. I wished our stay was longer and we will go back another time. We like the area -- Ridgway, Ouray, Montrose. It's easy to drive to many other places from here, and good restaurants are within a short walk from the cottage. I highly recommend the lemon ricotta pancakes at Kate's. I also had a skillet there that was excellent.

We've stayed in Ouray before, not far down the road, and one can drive to Telluride as well. It's a great area to explore. Grand Junction is about an hour north.

I was lucky enough to get a full month in this PERFECT Cottage for a Telluride ski trip. First of all, the Cottage is perfect for 1 or 2 people for a few nights or an extended stay as I had. Everything has been thought out and utilizes every inch of this beautiful dwelling. Built over a garage, which is great in the winter especially, with xtra amenities including a washer/dryer, extra fridge and a deep freeze, along with extra storage. From the garage into a mudroom entrance is more storage and steps leading up to an amazing living space. The bed is a Queen size and I probably had the best 30 nights of sleep ever on it!! Lots of very comfortable pillows too. Two large drawers at the base of the hand made bed are roomy enough for more clothes than I needed for even 30 days. There is a nice size table for dining in or laptops...etc and a small but VERY efficient kitchen. I cooked several large meals while I was there and with a 2 burner stove (an xtra portable burner is also available) a convection type toaster oven, microwave and a toaster, the 2 mini fridges, a large electric skillet, pots and pans, a blender, small crock pot, plenty of glasses, dinnerware and ALL sorts of utensils, not to mention a full array of spices and seasonings, you can cook up a storm if you desire. If you would rather leave the cooking to someone else, there are several very nice restaurants in Ridgway only a short walk away. The bathroom has room to hang clothes under a large countertop and a GREAT shower with all the water pressure you want. The vaulted ceiling which includes a nice sky light, gives the room a much larger feel and even allows for a nice little extra, a small loft sits above the bathroom and is a nice enjoyable space. Believe me, you can set up shop for two people for an extended stay very easy in this perfect location! It is immaculately kept also!

Secondly, as everyone has said, Bob & Darlene are without doubt, the best hosts you will ever have! As many have said, I too feel like I made a lasting friendship with these two. We went to concerts at the Sherbino together as we share the same love of all sorts of music. Talked about area history and events, met many of their great friends and I even skied with Bob and several friends on two occasions. In short, I didn't feel like I was a 1300 miles from home all alone, but with longtime friends.

I look forward to returning to this fantastic place in the future and rate it a TEN on a scale of 1 to 5!!!!!
