Overview

Ouray Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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

Opening May 15 - 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, Grosbeaks, 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.

About Jim and Nancy Kendrick

CLOSED NOW - UNTIL MAY 15. CALL FOR DETAILS.

3 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY. We do not maintain our calendar on VRBO so FOR A REAL PERSON CALL US AT 970-318-1133.

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 and Nancy Kendrick purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Jim and Nancy Kendrick chose Ouray

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Excellent Choice! Private, beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is in a beautiful setting surrounded by trees and the river below. Cabin is nicely decorated, clean, and located in an area perfect for hiking, biking, and exploring the beautiful town of Ouray and surrounding area. Day trips to Telluride, Durango and Silverton offer a lot to see and do. Fall photography was perfect with golden and red aspen at their peak followed by an early snowfall. Beautiful!

Perfect Getway - Talk about being taken care of!

  • 5 of 5
Little late on my review, but coming back to 3 kids took some time to get used to after the tranquility of this spot. It was quiet, peaceful, the river put us to sleep every night. Jim gave us some great suggestions on food, things to do, etc. We saw the sights, hung out in town, and more than anything hung out at the cabin. We throughly enjoyed our time at the cabin and do hope to return, and send some other family and friends there for a getaway.

Wonderful cabin! Meticulously maintained. My husband and I spent a week there this August and had a wonderful time. The cabin is minutes from Ouray but very secluded do to tress and river. The owners are very nice and available 24/7 if needed. We'll be back next year.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
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.

Mountain relaxion at its best!

  • 5 of 5
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.
