This was a bit of a challenging review because there were some positives and negatives, but by far the positives outweighed everything. A couple of comments up front...there is no microwave oven, so just be aware. We made due just fine and found out that yes, you really can live without one. The stove is well worn, but functional. Unfortunately the oven had not been cleaned, so we cleaned it out enough to make use of it. And finally, there was construction associated with the house next door. There was some inconvenience with that, but that's sometimes how it goes.
Now on to the positives. Oddly, one might think that the biggest positive was the view. It's amazing. But that was not our biggest positive. That belongs to the owner, Judy. Not only was she accommodating to us coming down a day early due to a snow storm, she also was accommodating due to the situation with the construction. Her willingness to work with us and ensure we were comfortable and happy was the single best thing about this trip. Her home is beautiful and the views from the deck and the master bedroom are unparalleled. You are on the side of a cliff at the top of the mesa directly across from the San Juan Mountains -- just amazing. The home is very comfortable and the downstairs bedrooms were great for the kids. Day trips to Ridgway Reservoir, Ouray and even Telluride were easy and fun for hiking, playing in the water, etc. Montrose is close with all the grocery stores and other stuff you need for an extended stay. All in all it was a great trip.
Having used VRBO/Homeaway many times, I can truly attest that an attentive, caring owner/property manager makes all the difference in the world. Judy was great and I would highly recommend this property to anyone interested in seeing the amazing beauty of Southwest Colorado.
Thank you for staying with us! The cleaning girl has been made aware that she did not clean the oven and it will not happen again!
The home next door is finished so the minor construction noise is gone!
Thank you for your understanding!
The unforgettable vacation with family with life time memories and views!
Thank you Judy for letting us stay at your beautiful home. We really enjoyed it. It was very comfortable and the views were amazing. It was clean and felt like home. The first morning we were there, there was a light snow. But it melted fast and wound up being a really nice day. We went to Telluride and rode the gondola up, we stayed at the top and enjoyed the beautiful views and then rode it back down. The next day we stayed around the house and went on a trail near by and walked a ways. It had beautiful views. But just about anywhere you go around there it is gorgeous. The next day we went to Ouray did some shopping and went to Box Canyon, the water fall there was beautiful and oh so deep. We enjoyed watching the chipmunks and the birds around the bird feeders and picnic tables. My grandson really loved watching them. Then the last full day we went back to Telluride and had a picnic and the guys went walking and my daughter and I went shopping. Loved every minute we stayed here. I would recommend it to anyone. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for everything.
Thank you for your comments--so glad that it was an unforgettable family vacation! Hope to see you next year!
The property was in a great location with a spectaular view!
We really enjoyed the house. As mentioned above the location was great and the views were spectacular. We took many beautiful pics from the deck. My husband did want me to mention the rail on the upper deck was a little loose.
The house was very nice - beautiful! It had everything we needed. There were plenty of towels, blankets, etc. The bedding was very nice and comfortable.
We cooked several meals there and found all the utensils and cookware we needed to make the meal. We did find some utensils that were on the counter in a stone jar very dirty. Otherwise the kitchen was well equipped!
Because the house is on the market there was a viewing during our stay. The gift certificate left at True Grit was very much appreciated. It was also nice that Judy stopped to introduce herself to my mother. It was a bummer that she was not able to join us that day because of her back pain but she enjoyed the visit from Judy.
Our only complaint was the cleanliness. In addition to the utensils there was a gross glob of hair in the corner of the shower in the master bedroom. Also the decor hanging over the kitchen sink was pretty dusty. That is easier to look past as I'm sure that doesn't get cleaned every time but the shower was kinda gross. This and the deck railing is the only reason we didn't give this stay 5 stars.
Again, we really enjoyed the visit. The personal communication with the owner (which I'm sure doesn't always happen with rental houses like this) was much appreciated! The return of the pet deposit was also appreciated! I think we would all agree that if we were to do this kind of trip again we would visit again! Thank you for the use of your beautiful home!
Thanks so much for your comments, Michelle! We will tighten the bolts of the railing on the deck. Also, our cleaning lady is aware of your concerns and apologizes!
The views were breathtaking and unforgetable!
Our family had a mini reunion in June and this home was absolutely beautiful for our stay! It was a good hub for all things that we did in Silverton, Ouray, and Telluride. Ridgeway had some exceptional food with Taco Del Gnar and the True Grit and just a quaint small town not far away. Enjoyed walking along the beautiful quiet Uncompadre River path in Ridgeway for miles. Enjoyed ATV's in Silverton and so much more! Beautiful memories made just sitting out on the deck talking or at night looking up at the stars as the sky so clear and dark. It is a beautiful home in a quiet, scenic, breathtaking setting. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone. It had everything we needed and more and Judy was always prompt and helpful with any question.
I chose this vacation home never having used VRBO before, not knowing the area or the owner. The views shown online did this place justice and sold me on this location. Very comfortable relaxing home with the most spectacular views. The 20-30 min drive from Ridgway to the home was no issue for someone that has never driven mountain switchbacks. Thank you for such a memorable week.
So glad that the home was what you expected!!
the picture doesn't lie
One of the best views in the Rockies. Great house with stunning views from all rooms!
So glad that you liked it--the photos cannot capture the awesome view!!
