Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Like many people, we visited Ouray and Ridgway on vacation and dreamed of having a place of our own here someday. In January 2015 our dream came true when we purchased Elk Meadows Hacienda. We live in the house about half the year, and are delighted to be able to share our home when we're away.

Why the Owner Chose Elk Meadows (Ridgway, CO, USA):
The first time we drove out to Miller Mesa and Elk Meadows we were blown away by the views. And the first time we walked up the stairs to the great room in this beautiful house, our reaction was just, "Wow." We love the views in all directions; the soothing quiet and privacy; the ponderosa pines, gambel oaks, and aspens all around us; the wildlife; and the constant presence of those gorgeous mountains.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Inside the house, you feel like you're on top of the world. Sometimes you can see the weather coming over the Sneffels range to the south, while the sun shines on the Cimarrons to the east. Sometimes you'll see clouds in the valley below the house, and rainbows (sometimes double!) after a rain. It's a unique and magical place.
