“Awesome!”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

Great location, clean and affordable. Mike was very friendly, attentive and thoughtful. I've mentioned in my reservation about our honeymoon trip and upon arrival he had a bottle of champagne, sweets and a card ready for us in upgraded room! What a pleasant surprise! Great attention to detail and exceeding expectations - well done! Definitely recommend this hotel and will come back again...

Room Tip: Room # 10 is the place to be!

Our 3 night stay started out very well. Mike (owner/operator) was nice and the room was clean, although without decent TV reception or internet service (as promised). Also no Verizon service as promised. Then on our last night it went bad; We left the sign on the door for fresh towels for the whole day. Towels were never delivered. Then we were promised by Mike that we could get passes from him for half off of the Hot Springs. We waited from 6:30 to 7:30 to get the passes, and finally had to go on and pay full price. There was a sign on the door originally saying he'd return at 6:45, then it was changed to 7, and Mike never showed till 9:30. Another guest told us he thought he was up to something, but all I know is he wasn't there for us when we needed him, and as he promised he would be. It wasn't nice having to use dirty wet towels to dry off with. Thanks Mike!

My husband, myself and our 2 dogs are staying at this cozy pet friendly lodge. We love our room, very clean, roomy and environmentally conscious. We are in Ouray ice climbing for New Year's. The owner is so nice! My climbing pants were so wet he kindly helped me out by drying them out for me! Service with a smile.
We are so pleased with the service and their dog friendliness that we're planning on staying here again for our next ice climbing adventure. We certainly encourage anyone looking for a cozy, outstanding service and great location lodge to try Timber Ridge soon.

We stayed at the Timber Ridge Lodge in mid October 2011 under the new management. Were looking for an affordable place to just spend the night. Our time in the area was unexpectedly extended by one day so we chose to stay there a second night as well! We arrived very late on the second day and they were kind enough to stay up to give us our keys. Ended up with the cheapest rate after just calling their front desk, not from an online site. Took credit card info over the phone, super easy. No frills, very clean, staff was extremely accomodating and friendly. Eco-friendly toiletries was a nice unexpected plus. Would highly recommend!

I took my first trip to Ouray, Colorado September 29-Oct 2, 2011. We stayed at Timber Ridge Lodge with Mike and Kima Jan Buhler( the owners), and had a wonderful experience . The rooms were clean, and comfortable, and cozy. The Buhlers were full of wonderful ideas for sightseeing, so we went on a jeep tour with San Juan Jeep tours, and climbed 13,000 up a mountain to be greeted by SNOW ! Such an amazing time. Our son had a great time hanging outside by the fire making S'Mores. It was the PERFECT Family vacation , and we will be returning to visit the Buhlers. I highly recommend Timber Ridge Lodge.

Room Tip: All the rooms are being remodeled, or already have been. I don't think you can go wrong with any...

My husband and I stayed at Timber Ridge Lodge from July 1 - July 9, 2011. We were gone most of the day jeeping and sight-seeing. What we really needed was nice clean accomodations to sleep with not a lot of fancy hype. Mike & Kimma (innkeepers/owners) were extrememely accomodating and very warm personable people. At night when we got back from our daily excursions, we were always greeted warmly. Sometimes at night (when weather permitted) he would build a fire out back for anyone who wanted to enjoy it. We had an extremely good stay and will definitely stay here next time we come visit Ouray. I know we'll be back here, because Ouray is our favorite place in the beautiful state of Colorado!! Thank you Mike & Kimma for your outstanding hospitality.

Room Tip: tell them your budget and your needs, they will try to get the best for your money!
