Ridgway Colorado – The Gateway to the San Juans

Located in the scenic Uncompahgre Valley, Ridgway Colorado is surrounded by the magnificent snow-capped peaks of the San Juan and Cimarron Mountains, rightfully earning it the title of “The Gateway to the San Juans.”

The town was named for Robert M. Ridgway, a railroad superintendent for the Rio Grande Southern Railroad, who established the town 1891. As the railhead center, Ridgway provided service to the nearby mining towns of Ouray and Telluride.

Today, Ridgway has all of the modern day conveniences, but still holds the charm of the Old West. If you’re looking for rich fertile land and ample space to enjoy unobstructed views of the natural beauty that is Colorado, Ridgway is the place for you.

Our experienced, local team, of licensed real estate brokers can help find you the perfect home, from a parcel of land to large ranches.

Besides soaking in the 360 days of sunshine Ridgway enjoys each year, one can also soak at Orvis Hot Springs. Offering seven soaking tubs with temperatures ranging from 98 to 112 degrees Fahrenheit, Orvis Hot Springs features four outdoor soaking areas and three indoor tubs.
