Interaction with guests

Darlene and I are true locals having grown up in Ouray and Ridgway. We spent our early married years in the Denver area and after 10 years decided that we wanted to leave the fast paced urban lifestyle and return to a more tranquil mountain setting. Ridgway was the perfect choice. We have been knocking around the southwest for 30 years now and have extensive knowledge of SW Colorado. We are people oriented and enjoy sharing our knowledge of the hidden gems of the southwest with others. As much as we love the natural beauty of the area we also feel lucky to live in a community with a very diverse mix of great people. We wake up every day thankful for where we live.

Comfortable and private. Darlene and Bob are perfect hosts. The architecture of the cottage is lovely and all the little things that make a home away from home are there.

Thanks so much Robert and Darlene for hosting us at your guest house! We loved it and felt like we were entering into a secret garden. All of the attention to detail far surpasses the photos. The little street in Ridgway felt like home, and it was great to walk to the excellent restaurants down the block. We truly enjoyed our vacation and can't wait to come back!

We loved our stay in this cute cottage. It was very clean, and had a little kitchen area and plenty of space for 2 people (and our small dog). There was even a garage we could use. Robert and Darlene were great hosts! They gave us tips for things to do in town and around the area, and left us a bottle of wine and a little chocolate. We will definitely return!
