Spectacular 360 degree views of the San Juan, Cimarron and Horsefly Mountains! This beautiful Colorado mountain house is located just outside the town of Ridgway. It sits nicely above the town of Ridgway with an outrageous view of the town lights at night. This private retreat is fully furnished with all the comforts of home. The private drive is 1/2 mile off of Hwy 550 on County Road 12. Nine miles from Ouray, 26 miles from the Montrose Airport and 35 miles from Skiing in Telluride.
Find luxury and comfort as you pull into the warm garage where the fire wood is cut and waiting for you to toss into a cozy fire place. The view from... the porch is breathtaking. It feels as though you can reach out and touch the San Juan Mountains. Come inside and kick off your shoes as you warm up by the fire. Enjoy a candy bowl full of Russell Stover chocolates as you check your email on our free fiber-optic high speed internet. Browse the abundant channels while watching TV on a large flat screen. Put your feet up in your leather recliner and gaze out the living room window as the deer graze on this 20 acre horse farm with the horses. Watch for the eagles as they nest in our 100 year old Cotton Wood trees or watch for the Red Tail hawks as they perch on the pasture fencing. Sleep in and enjoy our comfy beds with down comforters and soft pillows. Each bedroom has its own private bath with soft towels, soaps and amenities. Wake up at sunrise and cook breakfast in our fully stocked kitchen. Check the cabinets for coffee, creamer, flavorings and sugar. Open the fridge and help yourself to farm fresh eggs from our neighbor's chicken farm. Plan your day outside by the fire pit as you watch the horses run in the field. If you have a horse and would like to bring it along, you can ride the Cimarron trails, Blue Lakes or the National Forest. We have superior accommodations for your horse. Our barn offers large indoor 20' x 20' stalls, turn out pens, an Olympic size riding arena, water and good quality hay. Parking is not an issue; our turnaround drive is easy to use with plenty of room to park trailers, ATV's, snowmobiles or campers.
Be careful as you drive out the private drive as the Elk laze along the road, watch for the fox, marmot and cattle that cross. If you like to walk, take a stroll down the road or cut through the field to town. Get a coffee at the coffee house or taste the artisan cocktails of the Trail Town Distillery. Browse the pottery shop and enjoy a pizza at Panny's. If you like fine dining, cross the street to the Cimarron Café, if you are a sports fan, catch the latest game in their sports bar. Stroll through town and visit our Train Museum and Antique shops. Stop at Timber Ridge Clothing Shop for a great souvenir or drop by the Colorado Boy Brewery for a microbrew. Listen to music by our local artists, or go dancing at the Historic Sherbino Theater. Get some great pictures in our town park. Hartwell Park is the home of the original movie True Grit filmed in 1969. Elevate yourself while hiking the 17 mile River Walk, the paved path takes you past the library and along the Uncompahgre River to the Dennis Weaver Memorial Park. Once you have covered the Town of Ridgway, just 2 miles up the road is the famous Ouray Hot Springs where you can soak and soothe in the relaxing lithium pools. Shop the town of Ouray or visit the Ouray Ice Park. Rock Climb or swim year round in Ouray's heated outdoor pool. Take a 4-Wheel off-highway adventure that will bring you to some of the most stunning landscapes in the Rocky Mountains. The Brooklyn Road and Imogene Pass are the local favorites. Biking, hiking, climbing the waterfalls, mine tours, horseback rides, fly fishing, rafting or panning for gold are just a few of the things you can do here. Colorado has 300 days of sunshine! But don't forget Colorado's winter wonderland! From the famous turquois colored ice of Ouray Ice Park to the pristine powder of Telluride's ski hills. Colorado beckons ice climbers, back-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, snowboarding and world class skiing.
