About This Unit

ABOUT THIS UNIT:

Peaceful -- Distinctive -- Inspiring Views -- Nearby Trails -- Convenient. If these words speak to you, The Sanctuary is your perfect retreat away from home! The property is secluded, yet only two miles from both Orvis Hot Springs and downtown Ridgway, an easy five-minute drive to groceries.

This artisan home sits on 5 acres, and is ideal for the person who appreciates nature, wants to get away and reenergize. A large porch overlooks the majestic San Juan mountain’s with the agricultural valley below. This deck is a sweet spot to relax, drink coffee, have a great conversation, read a good book, meditate or enjoy a glass of wine!

If you like to hike or mountains bike, you will appreciate the nearby RAT trails (Ridgway Area Trails) less than a mile from the house to the northwest. http://ridgwaytrails.com/

A cheerful, colorful entry welcomes you with a small separate office to the left if you feel the need to get some work done while you are here. A handsome iron stairway leads to the second floor and is the main living area of the home. Here, you have gorgeous modern kitchen that is well equipped with new appliances including a 36-inch cook stove, large fridge and a quiet dishwasher. This open room has a lot of seating with a cozy living room area facing the view.

On this floor, there are two bedrooms -- a lovely master with queen bed and full bath with tub/shower combination, and a second multi-purpose room with a full-size futon and TV. On this floor, there is also a half bath with a noticeable hand-blown glass sink.

This “contemporary Tibetan” design has something beautiful to see at every turn, and if furniture could talk, this house is filled with stories!

The Sanctuary has WiFi, and a 40" flat screen TV is set up with an Apple TV box so that guests can use their own account for shows, movies, etc. There is no satellite TV service. There is a nice stereo system that you can use to play your favorite music. A new gas grill is also provided for outdoor cooking.

The lower level has a separate apartment with a very respectful tenant.

No pets in this home, please.

No smoking of any kind is permitted.

House is very beautiful and clean. The views are spectacular! If you are looking for a "getaway" retreat, this is the place! It was extremely relaxing and quiet. The house is located away neighbors and the noise of town. Ouray is 9.5 miles away while Ridgway is about 2 miles away. Perfect place is you're someone who likes being away from it all. During the mornings, we would spend our time relaxing by sitting on the porch looking at the mountains, praying, building a puzzle, playing "Farkle", and walking. In the afternoon, we would go into town and shop, climb Cascade Falls, go to the Museum, and visit the Russell Stovers store. In the evenings, we would eat at some of the areas restaurants (Outlaw and Goldbelt in Ouray and Stone House in Montrose). We had a great time and left feel refreshed! We will definitely go back if given the opportunity! Rob P.

Impeccable! If you are looking for peace, quiet, seclusion and relaxation with beautiful views, this is it! The house is impeccably decorated with Asian influences. I need some downtime and got it in spades here. Loved that Ridgway is a 5-10 minute drive - went for a massage and to Orvis hot springs. And I popped over to Ouray (15 minutes or so) for some chocolate and books. There are downstairs tenants which you can faintly hear - they are very quiet but don't be surprised by this. Overall very soul nourishing! Meghan G.

Wow! Wow! Wow! The Sanctuary is a very special place perfect for a couple. The views are spectacular and the house is beautiful. The interior of the home is decorated so nicely, lots of beautiful, one of a kind art, very intimate. As soon as we arrived and sat on the deck we began to talk about when we could come back. The Ridgway/Ouray area is very scenic with plenty to do. Next time we will schedule for a longer stay at The Sanctuary and explore more of the area, or maybe we'll just sit on the deck and stare at the mountains. 🙂 Alicia G.

The Sanctuary is a truly beautiful place. The views of the San Juan range from the deck are fantastic, and the stargazing at night, heavenly. This home is just enough outside of town to be very peaceful and relaxing, but just a five minute drive to Ridgway. We absolutely loved the decor of the home, so unique and very comfortable. Ouray is just down he road and has lots of fun shopping. We ate at Kate's Place in Ridgway for both breakfast and lunch on different days and it was very nice. The Sanctuary was clean, well-maintained, enjoyable to spend time in and more than we expected. Thank you so much for sharing this special place with us. We are already thinking about our next trip out west and a return to The Sanctuary. Alicia and Jim G.

We love coming to Ridgway and Ouray, and were thrilled that the Sanctuary was available for this past week... during the fall colors. The Sanctuary is so centrally located to both ranges and the San Juan, and areas we want to explore. The only thing that would improve this for us, would be additional bedrooms, so we could bring our kids and grandkids. And a hit tub would be great after the hiking and outdoor play. We are already thinking about next year. Thanks for sharing this fabulous home. Rhonda H.

We had an exceptional time at the Sanctuary in Ridgway. As a matter of fact, we shared our praise with several friends and fellow AirBnB hosts in Denver and Breckenridge. Hope you will see some revenue from that. Elizabeth H.

Eco Friendly Home

We forgot to write a review after staying at this beautiful, off the beaten path, getaway vacation home. I remember waking up and almost touching the San Juan Mountains...the view is spectacular from this location. The home had many stocked items and was very clean and new looking. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck to look at the view and the neighboring animals in the adjacent pasture. Truly a memorable experience and a very comfortable home to come back to after our daily adventures. The only negatives that we could find are that the stairs are slippery especially with socks on...my husband slipped a little but was ok. It would be nice to put something on them to insure no one hurts themselves. The outdoor grill wasn't in good operating condition....we suggested a new one. Also, the home needs a range over the stove to vent out the exhaust, steam when cooking. Other than this the home was perfect for the two of us! Loved the lighting, bamboo floors, ceiling fan, cross ventilation and the furniture layout. Look forward to coming back for summer and fall! P.S. With my chemical and environmental allergies and sensitivities this home was perfect....I would consider this a non toxic and environmentally healthy home!

Manager Response: Thank you for your valuable comments! A range hood has now been installed over the stove, and a new outdoor grill will be purchased and available soon. The owner is considering options to make the stairs safer, as well. We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay!
