After visiting Ouray since 1987 we finally decided to become part of this magnificent place. We love sharing our little piece of paradise and continue to encourage family and friends to visit. Every one of them has expressed how beautiful this area is and can now see why we moved here. We've had tons of fun in the San Juan Mountains. Winter is our favorite time of year with plenty of snow fall followed by blue sky days and fantastic skiing in Telluride.
Pattie purchased this house in 2003
Why Pattie chose Ouray
Ouray is one of the most beautiful places we ever traveled through, so we were thrilled to be able to own property here. This wooded property is located in the north corridor of the city limits, nestled between the canyon walls and only a short walk to the river trail, hot springs pool, or even downtown.
What makes this house unique
Enjoy the surrounding beauty of the San Juan Mountains. View Mt Abrams and the canyon walls from the comfort of a recliner in the living room or while enjoying meals on the patio. If you are lucky, some wild life may wonder through the property. A two mile river walk is across the street. Walk/jog, snowshoe/cross country ski the loop or use it to walk to the hot springs or into town. There is so much to see and do. There are winter and summer activities. Our vacation home is 0.7 mile from the Ouray hot springs and 8 miles from Orvis hot springs. The nearest airports are in Montrose (35 miles) and Telluride (50 miles). Ouray and Telluride offer jeeping and hiking (guided or self); museums, quaint shops, and restaurants. The town of Ridgway (10 miles) offers the same activities along with kayaking, canoeing, boating, fishing, and the Ridgway State Park/Reservoir. Winter allows for cross country skiing, alpine skiing, ice climbing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing.
Guestbook comments from the owner
A great big thank you for going the extra mile. Thanks for mailing the forgotten items, we greatly appreciate you doing it for us. We loved our stay in the stone house, it is at the top of the best vacations we have taken and will try to book it for our next visit to Ouray. The house far exceeded our expectations. We have stayed in other vacation rentals and I have to say this rates as our number one choice. Thank you again for your hospitality and sharing your lovely home! A+ Stay!
