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 Ridgway

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.

                                                              The Cottage was clean and well organized. They thought of everything you may need. Bob is a wealth of knowledge on Ridgway and the surrounding areas. Darlene is open and welcoming and a good source of information as well. There are plenty of great reasteraunts and bars within walking or stumbling distance. I would not hesitate for an instant to recommend this fairy tale cottage. I look forward to our next stay. It's as if I'm home....only better.

                                                              Bob and Darlene are terrific hosts....the stone house cottage is a lovely private haven to be based out of. We went hiking around Ouray, Silverton, Telluride and Ridgway and the cottage is in a great location to have easy access for exploring all those areas. After a long day it was nice to be able to walk into the town of Ridgeway for dinner, and the outdoor patio was a pleasant place to have a glass of wine. We would highly recommend the cottage for a private stay close to town.

                                                              Can't say enough about this rental. Bob and Darline are about the nicest folks you'll ever meet. The rental is exactly like it looks in the photos, clean, cozy, and in a great location. We would definitely stay here again.

                                                              Loved it! Wonderful, informative hosts.

                                                              A wonderful find, comfortable, charming, great location made even better by humble, helpful hosts.

                                                              Our first visit to Ridgway, it will not be our last!!! The Mann's are absolutely the best hosts, we so enjoyed getting to know them. Their shared knowledge of the area allowed us views of the majestic scenery only visible from the roads less traveled. The stone cottage is a well appointed, comfortable, private studio apartment located just blocks from the many Ridgway restaurants and shops. To say that we enjoyed our stay would be a huge understatement, we left relaxed and wanting more.

                                                              Great Stay!!!
