This was our third stay at the lodge, but it was our first visit during autumn. We are repeat customers because the owners are always available on location or by phone and because of the proximity to the river. During the summer the grounds are absolutely beautiful with flowers in pots and baskets everywhere and landscaping by the river. The owners make improvements during the off-season so, even though the property has existed for some time, it is constantly being upgraded. I really appreciated the updated Wi-Fi this visit that provided constant service even though our room was at the riverside some distance from the office. Breakfast was provided each morning, but there was a refrigerator and microwave in he room had we wished to make use of them.
We made this trip to see the aspens in fall so we were completely surprised by 4 inches of snow the morning after we arrived. The ice and snow melted by noon that day, but we thoroughly enjoyed the transitory beauty it provided and the many photos we took of snowy peaks and snow-decked pines. There were fewer tourists in town in early October and many store owners were closed or closing for the season, but the beauty that surrounds this small town is enough to make the trip worthwhile.
Above all, the primary reason we will return is because of the owner-operators, Dave and Chad, who made us and other guests feel welcome and well-cared for. They always took the time to answer our questions about the area. IT is a 2 1/2 day trip to get to Ouray from our home so it is very important to us that, when we arrive there, we are expected and there are no problems. Colorado has many sites for tourists but we return primarily because of the environment provided by our hosts at River's Edge.
