While some folks haven’t heard of Ridgway, others have, such as fashion mogul Ralph Lauren, who owns the infamous Double RL Ranch just south of town, viewable from this property. Charlie Ergen, co-founder and CEO of Dish Network and Echostar, owns a large spread just to the west of this property. Actor Dennis Weaver, of the 1970’s TV shows “Gunsmoke” and “McCloud”, built a famous “earth ship” house not more than a couple of miles away from this luxury home. Of course, Telluride plays host to Tom Cruise, Oprah Winfrey and countless other stars, only 30 or so miles away as the crow flies.
Known as the “Gateway to the San Juan Mountains”, Ridgway is a small community along the San Juan Skyway about 38 miles northwest of Telluride. This gateway community was recognized over 100 years ago when the Rio Grande Southern established Ridgway as a railhead center servicing the nearby mining towns of Ouray and Telluride. The town was named for railroad superintendent Robert M. Ridgway who established the town in 1891. Located near hot springs, a variety of small shops and a reservoir for summer boating, fishing and camping, Ridgway is perfect day trip from Telluride.
Whether you’re looking for adventure and excitement or the serenity of pristine alpine beauty, once you get to Ridgway you’ll want to stay awhile! Our small town hospitality is a blend of the spirit of the Old West, healthy lifestyles and laid-back, friendly folks.
