A unique wagon wheel pot rack, standalone island with counter seating and Southwest-inspired backsplash make for a pleasurable cooking experience in the fully equipped kitchen.

Before you settle in for the night, pick out a new movie from the video library to watch in the upstairs loft, which doubles as a second bedroom, featuring a flat-screen TV, queen-sized bed and full bathroom - perfect for 2 additional guests to make themselves at home.

The downstairs bedroom offers a four poster bed and direct access to an outdoor deck. Feel like royalty as you freshen up in the en-suite bathroom, boasting a large walk-in shower and separate soaking tub lined with decorative tiles.

Let your inner cowboy roam free when you book a trail ride with Telluride Wranglers - just 30 minutes from the home. Let the kids participate with a covered wagon ride to the ideal sunset dinner destination!

If you're looking for a longer day trip, take a scenic 50-minute drive to the Victorian mining town of Telluride.

Ideal home in secluded ranch-like area

  • 5 of 5

Seriously, don't look for another place to stay. This is the best place in the area. This beautiful off-the-grid home is ideal for anyone looking to get away from it all. We stayed here (family of 4) for almost one week and as soon as we left I wanted to go back (actually I didn't want to leave!). The home is super clean with the perfect kitchen, private, comfortable bedroom, loft for other family members. Actually, as another reviewer pointed out..this home could be featured in a magazine. Everything you need is here...including great cookware and plenty of space for whatever you bring (clothes/mountain bikes/backpacks). Each day we left to go hiking or in town (to Ridgway or Telluride) we all looked forward to drive to the home...not a soul around except for elk, cattle, much wildlife, so much open space. Such beauty. We loved cooking out on the grill and relaxing after a long day. If you want to be in a busy town, this place isn't for you, but if you want quiet seclusion...look no further. Joanna was great. Would definitely go back and stay longer.

Charming Cabin with Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughters, and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in this cabin. The home is beautifully (belongs in a magazine) and comfortably decorated with beautiful views of the San Juan mountains. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen is well stocked and roomy enough for cooking and hanging out. The cabin is very peaceful and private yet an easy and scenic drive to Telluride, Ouray, and Ridgeway. We were here in July, and there were wildflowers everywhere, and we spotted elk grazing in the green meadows along the road. The home is a great place to just relax and read, or there are many activities in the area. We went on several hikes - Blue Lakes was our favorite - and enjoyed many good restaurants in Telluride. We also went horseback riding and white water rafting. It was easy to set up our stay with Joanna, and she quickly answered the few questions we had. I would absolutely recommend this home to others. The only drawback was that I missed the house and the scenery so much when I got back to my own home.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to telluride every year for the 4th of July, we wanted a place away from the crowds, and this place worked out perfectly! Super quiet and private with alot of wildlife activity in the yard and on every drive down Last Dollar Rd. The owners made us feel like guests they have known for years, not to mention unbelievable woodwork happening in the home. Thanks again J&J!

Great little house

We spent a week at this cabin in September. We found it to be just as advertised and very clean and comfortable. A wonderful place to get away from it all.

Even better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely amazing place to stay--beautiful, isolated, pet-friendly. We stayed with our dog. It's so quiet up here--without all the noise of civilization or even living on a grid. The home was clean and well-maintained; while we were there, we heard from the owners briefly just to make sure that everything was okay.

The house itself is beautiful, and the pictures don't do justice to how lovely the space is. So often owners of these properties use fish-eye lenses to exaggerate the size; this house felt so much bigger than the pictures looked. The kitchen is huge and well-appointed; the house is bright with natural light, and replete with details that make it feel like home.

The internet access was a bonus--but as a warning, if you have to do work that requires you to be online constantly, if an afternoon thunderstorm rolls in, you might be interrupted. But you don't go to a place like this is you HAVE to have internet access.

All in all, I would definitely come here again. An absolutely amazing home.
