We took our family of five to this cozy mountain retreat. It was so much fun relaxing on the deck which offered tremendous, secluded mountain views. It was also fun to star gaze at night from this wonderful vantage point . The house is fabulous and we were very comfortable there . We appreciated the beautiful, well stocked kitchen and enjoyed all the amenities. There are also lots of fun things to do in and around the area. We can't wait to visit this property again!!
This cabin is perfect! The pictures represent it perfectly but you cannot capture the views and feeling of being there in person. Everything in the cabin is spotless and new. It's decorated exactly like a cabin on the mountainside should be. So fun to see all the small touches that went into the place. Everything anyone could need is provided, super comfortable beds, plenty of space. It was such an honor to be your first guests.
We primarily used the flat screen TV for music and news but there is Direct TV, DVDs/player, and excellent WiFi, good phone reception too (Verizon for us). Plenty of books and games, also new! My girls (11/14) enjoyed the games, and I appreciated the book with some history of the area.
The views are just amazing -- from the deck with the picnic bench you can look over to the snow capped peaks above Ouray. When we arrived the deer came to check us out, there are hummingbirds hanging around the pole. Quite other than the sound of the birds!
It was a cool weekend but we were plenty warm and only used the baseboard heaters a bit for my 90 year old dad. He used the small room and could have his own heat as needed.
We ate at the cabin but also enjoyed a few of the wonderful restaurants, particularly Kate's Place in Ridgeway for breakfast and the Outlaw for my dad's 90th birthday dinner (they let him wear John Wayne's hat!). We visited the waterfalls and spent time in the Ouray Hot Spring Pool. We were going to take the scenic drive to Silverton but the road was closed so we drove to Telluride and rode the free gondola, beautiful town with views, hikes, etc. In spite of the holiday weekend nothing was too crowded. Since we had my elderly father we did not do a lot of extreme things but there is so much more you can do in the area. I'd love to visit in winter for skiing , icepark etc. It's a great location.
Kim and Debbie were really quick to respond to our inquiry and make sure we had everything we needed. We only had to contact them once and they picked up right away.
I hope that you have many more visitors and that they will appreciate and treat your cabin as a special place. We sure did and hope we can return again!
Thank you so much for your hospitality!
