The Cottage

Exterior & The View

The Cottage has new vinyl siding and replacement windows with two Trex porches but it is its location that makes it unique.  It is located on a hillside at the end of a quiet, private paved road where there is no through traffic.  The Cottage overlooks the entire town of Ridgway and views are spectacular during every season.  The driveway is paved with parking for two vehicles at the house. The property is bordered by acreage that we own & State Game Lands so privacy is ensured. Hunting & hiking begin just steps from the door!

Enjoy fireside s'mores while relaxing by the fire.  Store your bikes and other outdoor equipment in the sturdy shed.

A special Thank You to our guest Joe who sent us the pictures to the right of the cardinal at the feeder and the baby rabbit. The photo of the bird feeder was taken from the front window and the other was taken right from the front porch!

Second Bedroom & Bonus Space

The second level of The Cottage has two rooms, one that's been furnished with two twin sleigh beds, nightstand, and dresser.  The other room or "bonus space" has been left unfurnished so that it can be customized to meet the needs of our long-term guests that will be staying six months or longer.

Master Bedroom

We've furnished the first floor master bedroom with a queen sleigh bed. There are also two large dressers, a TV, and full length mirror as well as blackout curtains for a peaceful night's sleep.  As with all other rooms in The Cottage, the original wood floors in the master bedroom have been refinished.  All linens are provided.


The laundry is located adjacent to the master bedroom and bathroom.  It conveniently serves as a laundry room, closet, and dressing room.


Custom cabinets and granite countertops give this small kitchen a touch of elegance and make it a workspace that any cook will enjoy.  All new appliances include refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, toaster, and garbage disposal.  It is fully stocked with dishes, silverware, glasses, pots & pans, cooking utensils, etc.

Living Room / Dining Room

The open plan living/dining room has its original restored oak floors and a spectacular birds-eye view of Ridgway.  The new furniture in the living area includes a sofa, HD flat screen TV with cable, recliner and two lounge chairs where you can relax with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and take in the scenery.  The dining area has a table with seating for six and Mrs. Malone`s (the previous owner) antique chandelier that we just couldn't bear to part with.


The newly remodeled bathroom has porcelain-tiled shower walls and floors and a granite vanity.  All bath linens are provided.
