About David and Allynn Dealy

We just celebrated our 53rd anniversary. We have three children and four grandsons. We split our time between a home in Texas and this home in Colorado. David is a Texas Aggie, class of 1964, who spent most of his career in the supercomputer field. He also served on two different school boards in Texas and refereed both high school and college basketball for 22 years. Allynn is a retired high school math teacher with a bachelor's degree from the University of Houston and masters degree from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. She plays the piano and sings in and directs, as a substitute, church choirs both in Texas and in Ridgway.

David and Allynn Dealy purchased this house in 2004

Why David and Allynn Dealy chose Ridgway

In September, 2004, we were driving from Moab, Utah to Ouray, Colorado when we saw the San Juan mountains in all of their glory. We had just retired and were not really looking for a second home but the beauty of the area swept up away. We stopped at the first real estate office we saw in Ridgway, told the agent we wanted a log house with a view. She showed us this house, along with others, we went inside twice and literally bought it on the spot. The view is to die for and the home more than meets our needs with its lofted ceiling, deck, picture windows and access to wonderful hiking trails around the corner. Look at the pictures from our deck.

What makes this house unique

We are blessed with the uniqueness of our little piece of paradise. When we look at the mountains we barely see the roofs of two houses. It is a house where one can enjoy the four seasons. Decks on three sides of the house, a wonderful great room with with high ceilings, aspen paneling and a pellet stove for cozy evenings are just some of the features of the house. We are just a block away from 3 different hiking trails, one of which overlooks the valley in what must be one of the most beautiful views in Colorado; a golf course nearby (golf when it is warm; cross country skiing when there is snow); wild animals in the yard (we have seen elk, mule deer, turkey, many beautiful birds, grouse, bobcat, bear, mountain lion (only one in our 8 years so no danger). In Ridgway and the surrounding area are many winter and summer activities from fly fishing to river rafting to hot springs to horse back riding to Jeeping in the high country to outdoor concerts in summer and indoor concerts in winter to casual and fine dining to relaxing from all of the above on our deck or a choice of two different hot springs. There is excellent elk and mule deer hunting close by on both private ranches and public lands. Just ask us and we will be more than happy to let you know about all of the things you can do when you are here. Our driveway is twenty yards off a county maintained road so access is not a problem.

Beautiful Cabin in Beautiful Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Dealy's cabin for a week in July. It was such a relaxing, beautiful vacation, and this cabin was the perfect home base for our family of 4. The cabin is on top of a mesa with breathtaking views of the San Juan Mountains. There are several nice trails close by, and wildlife was plentiful during our stay. Every evening, we sat out on the deck and watched the deer as they grazed past the cabin. We even saw a black bear one evening! The cabin is also pretty centrally located, which was a bonus. We did our grocery shopping in Montrose and ate several nice meals in Ridgway and Ouray. Most of the time, however, we cooked in the cabin, which was very well-equipped for cooking!

As for the cabin, it is comfortable and spacious, with good wifi and cell service (which is nice in that area!), and is a place we'd definitely come back to. We also appreciated all the good information the Dealy's left on keeping the house cool during the day, places to sightsee and eat, etc. We felt right at home! Thank you for a lovely vacation in your beautiful cabin! We enjoyed it!

Dealy cabin, loghill ridgway co.

  • 5 of 5

The Dealy cabin was everything we as a group expected. From the enjoyably short drive up to loghill

On paved roads from Ridgway.. To the breathtaking views of the mountains from the cabins big front windows. The cabin had more room than needed for our group of hunters from back east ... just can't say enough good things about this place ... with one of the biggest being the ease of discussing/researching this property prior to coming with the owners . And having them a phone call away if needed while we were there. .... simple put ... you can't go wrong...

Beautiful, Quiet, Peaceful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My sister, daughter, and I needed to just get away. This was the perfect setting. The first morning we pulled open the shades, it almost took our breath away. The San Juan mountains smiling back at us with all its glistening snow. We just stared. We had never seen such beauty. And the deer! Plenty of them! And, not afraid of you. They did not even bother us as we took a walk. The snow was deep enough, we had to take advantage of making snow angels. Thank you David and Allynn for sharing your place and giving us this opportunity for seeing such beauty.

Owner's Response: Bonnie, we are so glad your "girls" getaway was so much fun and relaxing for you. The San Juan mountains and our view from Log HIl is majestic all year round. As you saw, the wildlife is spectacular and beautiful. Thanks for visiting and come back...each season is different. Thanks for staying at our log house. David

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most amazing time!! There was plenty of room, the deck was beautiful! The view was breath taking!! we really felt like we were at home. The Dealys had everything we needed plus so much more! We were lucky enough to be there on Christmas and we had snow the whole time! It was our first white Christmas and by far the most magical! Any question we had it was answered right away. Plus I left my watch and they are mailing it to me! I didn't even know I left it!

Very honest, down to earth, wonderful people! We hope to come back again!! There is a little bit for everyone there. My husband and I like to hike and there are a few trails right down the road. My mom and dad came and couldn't get enough of the view and the wild life. Plus my kids had a blast too!
