Chipeta Solar Springs Resort is nestled at the edge of the San Juan Mountains in Southwestern Colorado.  This unique, rustic resort is perfect for a romantic or adventurous getaway.

Chipeta Solar Springs Resort and Spa is a “best kept secret” in Southwestern Colorado.  This gem of a getaway on the Western slope is a destination resort.  The resort is located in the picturesque town of Ridgway, “home of the Grammys”, with a railroad museum, a variety of restaurants, shops, brewery, and local hot springs for those wishing to relax, refresh and rejuvenate. Telluride is just a 45-minute drive, and the town of Ouray, "the jeeping capitol of Colorado,” is just 15 minutes away. 

A local architectural icon, the resort is on the southern edge of town within solar ranches, adjacent to the community Ridgway Athletic Park which includes basketball and tennis courts, baseball, soccer fields and a skateboard park.  This is a favorite spot for families and friends surrounded by the Uncompagre and Sneffles wilderness areas with plenty of adventures locally for all, such as jeeping, hiking, biking, rafting, fishing, and horseback riding.  The Ridgeway State Park and lake just down highway 550 can be accessed by walking or biking down the Riverway Trail following the Uncompagre River and Denis Weaver Memorial Park. 



Centrally located at the “Gateway to the San Juan Mountains”, national parks such as the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Mesa Verde, Arches, and Canyonlands are all within a three hour drive. Skiing is an hour away at both Telluride and Silverton Ski Areas.
