Overview

Ouray House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

This mountain home is located on a corner lot in a private neighborhood 2 miles north of Ouray. There is a secluded patio with outdoor fire pit, shaded by Pine tress. The patio takes up much of the small back yard, but there is plenty of room in the front for kids to play! Over-sized attached 2 car garage. The original owners of this house built a small log cabin style house. A few years later they enlarged it by adding a large living room with an loft bedroom above it and a large 2 car garage with laundry and entryway. When we purchased this house in 2006, we renovated it from top to bottom, replacing the lovely 80's carpeting with wood flooring, a new kitchen and bath downstairs and a new enlarged bath upstairs, with a skylight in the large shower, allowing for a great view of the surrounding pines while showering.

When renovating, we turned the open loft bedroom over the living room into a semi-closed off bedroom by building a full height wall with double closets. There is still open space between the living room and the master bedroom, so there may be some noise that carries over. Living there, my husband and I had no problems, but if you have a large group, your experience may be different.

There is one bedroom downstairs with a full bath. Upstairs there are 2 large bedrooms, one with 2 queen beds, one with a king bed, and a large bathroom with double sinks and view shower. The living room has pullout sofa bed.

Quiet, yet close to town. Hiking trails within walking distance. An abundance of wildlife is visible regularly, birds, small animals, deer, elk, even bears!!

About Vicki Rooker

We are retired paramedics from San Francisco, resettled in the mountains to get away from the everyday hustle and bustle of city living. We had visited Ouray several times prior to our move and although the lifestyle change was 180 degrees, we have really enjoyed the quiet and slower pace of our mountains.

Vicki Rooker purchased this house in 2006

What makes this house unique

Master bedroom skylights allow views of the moon & stars as we fell asleep to the quiet with only water sounds from Corbett Creek to lull us to sleep or the occasional soft 'whump' of snow cascading off of the pine boughs in winter.

Rental in Ouray

  • 4 of 5
We arrived and easily found the keys. Inside everything was clean and they had a fire built and ready for us to light ( we did not use it though, house was warm for us). Everything you need provided in the kitchen. Living room furniture was a little dated but still nice. Upstairs bedroom was large with plenty of storage, also bathroom was good size. House easy to find in a quiet, small neighborhood, the only thing I would change would be to add window blinds in the living room on the first row of windows. Anyone walking or driving by can easily see into the house at night. We will bring our pet next time. No problem renting this house again! Eat breakfast at Kate's in Ridgeway!

AWESOME PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Although it was a surprise that we got a foot of snow in May, we had a wonderful time staying at this property. Vicki is easy to work with during the reservation and stay and my family (6 adults) had plenty of room in the house. We referred to her as Martha (Stewart) the whole time because this house has EVERYTHING you might need while staying there. It is convenient to Ouray and Ridgeway and completely private even though it is in a small neighborhood.

We watched the deer walk through the property and enjoyed a fire in the firepit on the patio every night (until the snow started). I would definitely stay here again.

Successful ice climbing trip

  • 4 of 5
A very well equipped and clean property. We had a full compliment and although the kitchen is a bit small to cater for than many, it is generously equipped. However, the main living areas were great and we had an awesome time 'apres' ice. I would not recommend the pull out sofa for more than a night or two, but all the other beds were great with loads of linens provided. The garage is handy for gear sorting and the under floor heating is excellent, great for drying out ropes and boots. All in a good property that is excellent value for money. Many thanks.

Christmas stay!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay at this property. The house is well stocked - plenty of towels, blankets and even the kitchen supplies and spices to make up the full Christmas dinner we brought. The only thing that was a little tricky was regulating the temperature. We always ended up either a little too cold or too hot. Other than that, awesome quiet and roomy place. Loved it! Can't wait to come back next time we are in town for some ice. :-)

Great Value for the Money

  • 4 of 5
This rental home was a good value for the money. It is close to Ouray, well within walking distance along a picturesque river walk. The directions to the house were very easy to follow even in the dead of night. Our family arrived around midnight. The photos were accurate and the home well maintained and clean. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return. It would be great for families with older or younger children. The owners were a delight to work with.
