About the property

Beautiful Moder Guest House On A Stunning Ranch In SW Colorado - Worth The Visi

Our property is a 35 acre working ranch with stunning views of the San Juan Mountains.

We're just 3 miles outside of the wonderful town of Ridgway, 13 miles from the adorable town of Ouray, and a beautiful 35 minute drive from the picturesque ski town of Telluride!

The Guest House is a stunningly modern home that was designed with guests in mind. Your hosts pride themselves on their hospitality and take great joy in making sure that their guests have a truly special experience while visiting.

-The guest house sleeps 6 VERY comfortably with 2 queen beds and 2 singles in a sleep loft.

-The Master bedroom has a queen sized bed, full dresser and ensuite bathroom with stunning stall shower and modern amenities.

-The guest bedroom has a queen sized sofa bed (really comfortable) that can be folded up should you rather have that room as a study. A small modern dresser and fully stocked book shelf complete that room (with views of the San Juans to die for!).

-The sleep loft has 2 comfortable single beds with a desk and spectacular views of the property and mountains loved by both kids and adults!

-2 full beautifully appointed bathrooms (1 in the Master Bedroom), each with gorgeous stall showers and modern sink/vanities, are stocked with shampoo, conditioner and body wash and each include robes for our guests (and hairdryers).

-The fully stocked kitchen is complete with refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, electric tea kettle and any type of cooking pot or utensil you could ask for. This isn't your typically stocked rental kitchen. It has beautiful modern glassware and dishes and a full compliment of spices and condiments to make sure you have everything should you want to cook your own meals while visiting.

-The living room has a gas fireplace, large screen wall-mounted TV with Satellite, and access to your own private patio with chairs, fire pit and charcoal grill within the fenced in grass yard.

-The Guest House has everything you're looking for as it is ideally suited to anyone who likes to hang out and relax in an incredibly beautiful nature, sightsee, or ski in Telluride which is only a 40 minute drive from our door. You can stay to yourself or allow us to pamper you with delicious meals and help with booking activities in the surrounding area.

-Since you'll have a fully stocked kitchen, we would be happy to fill the refrigerator with foods/drinks of your liking before you arrive (for a small fee and the cost of groceries).

-A separate breakfast nook is ideal for morning coffee with beautiful views of the mountains with the floor to ceiling windows.

-A washer/dryer is available for guests opposite the breakfast nook (bring your own detergent please).

-In addition...Matthew is a professional dance instructor and we have a "Dance Hall" built into the Main House. If you'd like to enhance your stay with a dance let us know and we'll arrange an hour with Matthew for a small fee, to learn your favorite dance moves with your partner.

-Our guests can stay to themselves or allow us to pamper them with delicious meals with us (in the main house), or brought to you at the guest house.

-We are always happy to provide you with information about activities, hiking trails or places to see in the area; or help you book tours, massages, horse backing riding and more.Easy to find and a gorgeous drive here from any direction.

-If you're coming from the Denver/Metro on a 6 hour drive through the most gorgeous parts of Colorado (we'll provide easy to follow driving directions for 2 different beautiful routes). There is a local airport in Montrose (about 30 minutes away) with direct flights from a number of hubs around the country. Or fly into Grand Junction (about 2 hours away) or Durango (about 2.5 hours away) and rent a car.

House Rules:

We ask that you respect the property, animals and surroundings while you are visiting. No extra guests allowed without our knowledge and permission (and there is a $50 per night fee for anyone over 6 guests).

Pets are allowed only with advanced notice and an extra fee of $20 per night (and we ask for that in cash at the time of check in).

We do not allow smoking in the house, but you can smoke on the patio as long as you clean up after yourself.

Located at the base of the San Juan Mountains in SW 35 acre ranch has grown to include a variety of farm animals and an array of accommodations for their hosting of guests from around the world.

What makes this house unique

The ranch is unique because it of its beautiful location, and the style of accommodations available to our guests (a Yurt and a Guest House). In have a barn full of "mini" animals that delight our guests who either want to pet the mini horses, donkeys, goats and even want to experience some of the chores we do everyday in the upkeep of the ranch. Its totally up to our guests!!!

Unexpected beauty and fun

  • 5 of 5

Cindy and Mike are so welcoming, and there animals are just the cutest. The guest house was perfect for the 5 of us, with great outdoor space, nice bedrooms and bathrooms. We really enjoyed the closeness to Ouray and Telluride for quick day trips.

Comfortable, great option for large family

  • 5 of 5

plenty of space to relax and spread out. It was great to be out of the city and enjoy some family time. Great option for lawn games with the kids. Kitchen was better equipped than mine at home. Thanks for an awesome place to stay.

Great views and wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time here. The views of the mountains were fantastic and my kids loved getting to help with the animals in the morning (optional of course). The whole valley is maybe one of the most picturesque of Colorado and honestly this is one of the best views in that valley. The owners were great - helpful when we asked and not underfoot while we were just hanging out. We plan on staying again sometime.

Great lodging and friendly hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We were staying in the area for a family wedding and reunion for 6 days. After pricing out the hotels in the Ridgway/Ouray area, we determine that it would be less expensive and a lot more comfortable to share a house with a few relatives. We had 5 adults and 1 toddler. The place was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. They had everything we needed to cook some meals (including spices). They also had many interesting farm animals. The hosts were very gracious when we arrived and eager to make us comfortable. We would definitely stay there again if we are in the area. (Access to the loft area may be challenging for young children or older adults.)
