House is very beautiful and clean. The views are spectacular!
If you are looking for a "getaway" retreat, this is the place! It was extremely relaxing and quiet. The house is located away neighbors and the noise of town. Quray is 9.5 miles away while Ridgway is about 2 miles away. Perfect place is you're someone who likes being away from it all. During the mornings, we would spend our time relaxing by sitting on the porch looking at the mountains, praying, building a puzzle, playing "Farkle", and walking. In the afternoon, we would go into town and shop, climb Cascade Falls, go to the Museum, and visit the Russell Stovers store. In the evenings, we would eat at some of the areas restaurants (Outlaw and Goldbelt in Ouray and Stone House in Montrose). We had a great time and left feel refreshed! We will definitely go back back if given the opportunity!
If you are looking for peace, quiet, seclusion and relaxation with beautiful views, this is it! The house is impeccably decorated with Asian influences. I need some downtime and got it in spades here. Loved that Ridgway is a 5-10 minute drive - went for a massage and to Orvis hot springs. And I popped over to Ouray (15 minutes or so) for some chocolate and books. There are downstairs tenants which you can faintly hear - they are very quiet but don't be surprised by this. Overall very soul nourishing!
Wow! Wow! Wow!
The Sanctuary is a very special place perfect for a couple. The views are spectacular and the house is beautiful. The interior of the home is decorated so nicely, lots of beautiful, one of a kind art, very intimate. As soon as we arrived and sat on the deck we began to talk about when we could come back. The Ridgway/Ouray area is very scenic with plenty to do. Next time we will schedule for a longer stay at The Sanctuary and explore more of the area, or maybe we'll just sit on the deck and stare at the mountains. :)
Great place to stay and unwind
The Sanctuary was stupendous. A part of me is loath to sing its' praises too much, because we won't be able to get a res. in the future. The view from the living room and porch are just spectacular. My sons saw several shooting stars one evening. The next evening we saw a rainbow just behind the house. The concrete counters in the kitchen are beautiful. The bed in the main guest room is very comfy. The proximity to Ouray is great. We did not have time to explore Ridgway. All in all a place that is good for body and soul.
Eco Friendly home
We forgot to write a review after staying at this beautiful, off the beaten path, getaway vacation home. I remember waking up and almost touching the San Juan Mountains...the view is spectacular from this location. The home had many stocked items and was very clean and new looking. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck to look at the view and the neighboring animals in the adjacent pasture. Truly a memorable experience and a very comfortable home to come back to after our daily adventures.
The only negatives that we could find are that the stairs are slippery especially with socks on...my husband slipped a little but was ok. It would be nice to put something on them to insure no one hurts themselves.
The outdoor grill wasn't in good operating condition....we suggested a new one.
Also, the home needs a range over the stove to vent out the exhaust, steam when cooking.
Other than this the home was perfect for the two of us! Loved the lighting, bamboo floors, ceiling fan, cross ventilation and the furniture layout. Look forward to coming back for summer and fall!
P.S. With my chemical and environmental allergies and sensitivities this home was perfect....I would consider this a non toxic and environmentally healthy home!
