OURAY CARETAKER'S RIVERFRONT CABIN NORTH OF OURAY MAY SPECIAL

Ouray Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

OPEN MAY, 2014 - 3 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY. Faster if you EMAIL DIRECT TO nancyck10@gmail.com This new (2010) secluded, private cabin, nestled among beautiful Ponderosa Pine, Cedar, and Pinion trees, is located 3 miles north of Ouray, CO, right off the old narrow gauge railroad grade now County Road 17, and sits right next to the Uncompahgre River. The cabin has a large front deck which is great for relaxing and watching the river. Bring extra pillows and sleeping bags if you wish to sleep on the deck to enjoy the sound of the river. Views of the river and Mt. Abrams are spectacular. This is a great place for honeymooners who wish to be in a peaceful place, yet close enough to town for other activities. BUT IT IS DANGEROUS TO SLEEP ON THE GROUND BY THE RIVER, REMEMBER WE HAVE BEARS! RACCOONS! AND SKUNKS!

***Pets Cannot Be Left Alone At The Cabin and Must Be Supervised At All Times.***

Bird watchers will love this cabin where Hummingbirds, Chickadees, Steller’s Jays, Grosbecks, Nuthatches, Bald and Golden Eagles, and Red-Tailed Hawks abound. Wild animals such as white-tailed deer, elk, big horn sheep, and bears may be seen on their way to drink at the river. Caution should always be taken staying in the wild, wooded mountain areas and always watch your children and pets.

Star-gazing while watching the Milky Way, meteor showers, and other heavenly bodies here are exciting since the sky is so clear and the cabin is away from the big city lights that block the sky. Bring your telescope and/or binoculars for day and night use. The full Moon will astound you!

Staying at the Caretaker’s Cabin will give you a treasure chest full of memories that will entice you to return year after year.

Jim and Nancy Kendrick have lived in Ouray, CO for more than 28 years. Jim is originally from the Ventura, CA area and Nancy is from Houston, TX. They have both hiked, rock hunted, jeeped, and/or climbed practically every area in Ouray County and the surrounding areas. If they don't know how to find what you are looking for, they know someone who does. Feel free to ask for any information you might need.

Jim & Nancy Kendrick purchased this cabin in 2010

We chose to build the Caretaker's Cabin because we love the land, river and mountains here and we own a home and 5 acres right next door across the creek. It is so beautiful and has a hillside to the north that is covered in lupine flowers with delightful perfume every May and June. We offer this cabin to people to enjoy the quiet tranquility of nature in this special spot. We feel the seclusion, quiet and privacy of the area should appeal to people who want to 'get away from it all.' It is the only piece of property in Ouray County that is truly on the river out of town for rent.

The Caretaker's Cabin is unique because it is right on the Uncompahgre River and the seclusion and privacy allows one to meditate, be at peace and one with nature without being too far removed. There is still TV and news, but no phones unless you bring your cell phone. With the peace and quiet there are many species of birds and animals that pass through the property. The picture postcard views of the river and mountains are great for artists and photographers alike. The Ute Indians used to come here to summer along the Uncompahgre River and believed in its healing properties. Just south of the cabin is the Dallas trailhead for hiking up into the mountains. From Ouray there are many other hiking trails. Be advised that our trails start at around 7,800 ft and many go as high as 14,000 ft. In Ouray, you can rent a jeep or take a jeep tour, go to the hot springs pool, walk around town to see the historic mining homes, or go to the historic mining museum. There are many places to shop and eat. Ten miles north of Ouray is Ridgway, CO, where you can eat and shop, too. Head a little west along Highway 62 and at the Dallas Divide you can see the panoramic view of the magnificent 14,000 ft. Sneffels Range of the San Juan Mountains.

Just spent 3 nights., and can't say enough about this property. Virtually brand new, very clean and well maintained. Perfect location - 5 minutes to Ouray, 10 minutes to Ridgway. Jim greeted us right when we got to town and went over everything. Very helpful and accommodating. We've stayed in Ouray before, but our first time at the Caretaker's Cabin. We will definitely come back. Just perfect.

My husband and I wanted to get away from it all. And we did. Property was peaceful, quiet and the river serene. We did some hiking and jeep trails, but spent most of the time at the cabin to relax and enjoy what life has to offer. Our dog loved the trail down to the river and exploring new sights and sounds. The location was perfect! At two miles from town, just far enough away to only hear to the sounds of the roaring river and birds nesting on the porch, but close enough to get supplies if we needed. Thank you Jim and Nancy for letting us stop to smell the roses at your cabin, and for being wonderful hosts. Your generosity reminds us that first-class customer service is still out there.

Not only was the description listed about the Caretaker's Cabin true - but it was so much more!!! Beautiful setting, well maintained and set up great - had everything you could possibly need. This is not a brand new cabin - but it looks brand new. Being able to hear and see the river, hear the birds, butterflies, see the mountains from the living room and deck (the picture on the web site I believe is Mount Abraham and you can see it from the sofa!) - was perfect. I was seeking solitude, peace and rest - perfect. Also town was close as well as many attractions from sight seeing to bands/festivals. So close to Ouray - toured a ghost town, just 10 miles from Ridgeway and scenic routes including where True Grit was filmed - (I am from Arkansas so seeing the store front in Ridgeway done to be Ft. Smith was kind of cool), so close to Silverton (in my opinion the most beautiful scenery) Jim is always available for whatever question you may have. He went above the call of duty by helping me find assistance for a flat tire while sight seeing and even stopped by the buisness where I was getting my tire fixed to check on me. Met some great local people. If a cabin in the mountains, by the river is your thing - this is the place for you. Thanks, Jim!

Love the place. Enjoy hearing the sound of the river, being visited by Deer and hearing the birds during our morning coffee on the porch.
Very clean, and private. Owner is very nice and accommodating.
Good location to Ouray. We spent a week 4x4 trailing in the San Juan mountains and enjoyed the cabin. Highly recommend it.
