About Rachel Gifford

Hello! My name is Rachel and Pine Grove was my childhood home. My dad and stepmom still own the place and currently live in Kalispell, MT. I live and work in Denver, CO and occasionally make it out to Ridgway to visit. Having grown up in Ridgway, I know a lot about it and the surrounding area and am more than happy to be a resource for you as you plan your vacation!

Best Place to stay For Telluride!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Make no mistake about it, this secluded estate located in beautiful Ridgeway is a true Jem. The owners are absolutely fabulous to deal with and The house unbelievable. Deer greeted us every morning. Upwards to 20 on the property. You are secluded and minutes to Ridgeway town center. 45 minutes to ski at Telluride. The home has unbelievable architecture and everything is clean and well kept. We will be back for sure. Thank you so much Mrs . Mei for an outstanding vacation minus the snow. Your house more than made up for it.

True Colorado Living

  • 5 of 5

Our week-long family reunion (most of them from overseas) was one of the most memorable ones at this incredible home with the stunning mountain and valley views all around. The clear starry night sky was just perfect for stargazing and it’s as if you could just reach up and grab a star (or two...) from the sky, well, you just have to come to see it yourself… Each spacious room and all the amenities let everyone have their own space to relax after adventures, a sightseeing, a day hike, a jog in the surrounding area, or just chilling and hanging out in the house with each other. Mei, the owner of the house, was friendly and passionate. She was most helpful and easy to work with as she speaks multiple languages. We all agreed that we will be back here again for our future gatherings.

My family and I truly enjoyed and deeply benefited from our time together in this beautiful home. The views of Mt Sneffles and surrounding mountains from the Mesa, from both inside and outside the home, were just incredible! The home included all amenities to make our break from the world around us completely comfortable. The steam room was a special reward after a day of hiking!
