About Mark Day

We split our time between Seattle and Ridway and are avid back country enthusiasts - namely skiing and hiking. We love this part of the country and find the San Juan mountains and British Columbia to be our favorite parts of North America.

Mark Day purchased this Condo in 2016

Why Mark Day chose Solar Ranch

Ridgway is the gateway to the San Juan Mountains where we're half way between Telluride and Silverton in an amazing, quiet town. Ridgway has an incredible selection of restaurants, shops and entertainment with easy access to all of what the San Juan mountains have to offer -- a convenient refuge after a day of skiing, hiking, mountaineering, hunting, fishing, etc.

What makes this Condo unique

Amazing location and a very spacious property -- urban living flair right in the heart of one of the most scenic parts of Colorado.

                                                              Jesse R.

                                                              An incredible condo in the best location in Ridgway!

                                                              Our stay at the penthouse

                                                              Carol M.

                                                              The Penthouse was beautiful and a great place to stay. The housekeeping crew they used leaves a little to be desired. There were sheets left in the dryer from a previous renter and there was a glob of toothpaste in the bathroom sink in the queen size bed room. The extra charge of $150.00 for cleaning was an overcharge considering what we found. The instructions for getting into the penthouse could have been a little clearer. When I went into the web sight all I got was advertising. Thankfully a complete stranger let me use her computer so I could get in touch with Mark and he was a great help.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thanks for the important feedback, Carol. We’ll make sure we correct these issues. We appreciate your taking the time to offer!

                                                              Fantastic Condo! Won't be disappointed!

                                                              This was a fantastic condo with everything you could want or need with lots of room for four people or more. Great balcony with views of the mountains, nice to have an elevator for luggage, comfy sofa and chairs to relax. Couldn't ask for better location when staying in Ridgway and close to Ouray and Teluride.

                                                              Owner was very responsive to questions and info so if you want a great place to stay while visiting this area I would suggest this home away from home. Just one suggestion you need an iron and ironing board.

                                                              Thanks so much Mark for everything!

                                                              Perfect place for a relaxing vacation!

                                                              We loved the space and the area. Really enjoyed the view of the stars from the balcony. Looking forward to a return trip!!

                                                              We loved our stay in Ridgway. The penthouse was beautifully decorated and spacious, excellent for the six in our group. Three spa like suites and a gourmet kitchen with beautiful views from the balcony. The location is perfect for visiting Ouray, Telluride and Ridgway Reservoir. There a several beautiful hikes at the reservoir. It is so convenient to walk to several restaurants and shops. This part of Colorado is one of the most beautiful parts of the State, perfect for motorcycle rides!

                                                              Parking was initially a problem but Mark was able to provide some tips that helped. There is an elevator which helps with carrying up luggage but also two flights of stairs that provide alternate access. We did suggest providing more than one set of keys since there were six of us and we managed to have a couple of people get locked out.

                                                              The Penthouse loft was spacious and cozy. Perfectly located near many points of interest.

                                                              The Penthouse loft was perfect for 8 of us traveling together. Spacious, clean, comfortable and in a central location. We were walking distance from the grocery store, shops and restaurants. Located near Ouray and Telluride was perfect for day trips. Well equipped with everything we needed for a pleasurable stay.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thanks so much, Martha. I'm glad to hear you had such a great stay. Ridgway really is such a great little town with tremendous access to so much of what the San Juan mountains have to offer. We look forward to your return.
