Award Winning Cow Creek Suite: Edge-Of-Town Quiet & Convenience With Great Views

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Custom built in 2007, Cow Creek Suite's immaculate and luxuriously comfortable accommodations, the quiet edge-of-town location and affordable rates have combined to make it one of Ridgway's most popular vacation rentals. And when readers of the Ouray County Plaindealer were asked in 2013 to name the best lodging in the County they voted Cow Creek Suite second only to the City of Ouray's iconic Beaumont Hotel - recognizing Cow Creek Suite as one of your top lodging options in all of Ouray County as well.

With great second-story views of adjacent meadows and the surrounding San Juan Mountains, you will love this family friendly, two-bedroom property featuring private full bath, laundry, and fully-equipped kitchen and dining facilities. The suite is smoke and pet free and features allergen barrier bedding and an AccuClean(TM) Whole Home Air Filtration System.

Offering 960 square feet of living space, the large, open great room and vaulted ceilings throughout provide spacious living quarters. Private decks facing east and west let you enjoy sun or shade any time of day. With a queen bed in one bedroom and two twin beds in the other, the suite comfortably sleeps four (five with a youngster on the available cot).

With 400 thread-count 100% cotton sheets, plush carpeting, high-speed, secure wireless internet service by CenturyLink, premium HDTV service by Dish Network with 'The Hopper', custom woodwork and historical area photographs and art, this spacious suite is outfitted to be your favorite home away from home.

The convenient, edge-of-town location is as quiet as it gets, yet directly across the street you can access Ridgway's network of wide, pedestrian and bike friendly sidewalks for a quick, easy walk or ride into the center of town and all of Ridgway's many fine restaurants, shops, and attractions - including the Ridgway Visitor Center, Railroad Museum, Town Park, County Fairgrounds, and the River Trail. (The River Trail traverses the Uncompahgre River corridor to Dennis Weaver Memorial Park, Ridgway State Park, and the awesome hiking trails and single track mountain bike paths surrounding Ridgway.)

SUMMER GUESTS PLEASE NOTE! Thanks in part to a growing family of repeat guests, half the suite's summer dates are typically reserved by January 1st so if you have specific dates in mind please book early.

NOT AVAILABLE? If Cow Creek Suite is booked for the dates you want and you're a party of just one or two guests, be sure and check out our brand new Cow Creek Suite For Two. Just type its vrbo property ID number (597318) in the vrbo search bar, check the calendar and let us know if any of its open dates work for you.

About Mary Beth and Bob

Hi I'm Mary Beth - husband Bob and I have been offering vacation rentals to travelers to our area since 2007. I've lived in Ouray County since 1974 and Bob since 1999 and we enjoy sharing what we've learned about this special place we call home and its many attractions. We look forward to hosting you and your family and promise to do our best to make Cow Creek Suite your favorite home away from home!

Mary Beth and Bob purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Mary Beth and Bob chose Southwestern Colorado

Cow Creek Suite is ideally located between Telluride and Ouray along the San Juan Skyway, perhaps the most scenic of the entire Colorado Scenic and Historic Byway System. This paved highway forms a 236 mile loop in the southwest part of Colorado traversing the heart of the San Juan Mountains. The property is just 37 scenic highway miles from Telluride's incredible snow skiing and summer festivals, yet only a short walk or drive to Ridgway and Ouray's natural hot springs, unique historic attractions, affordable shops, great restaurants and limitless outdoor adventures. (Think Outside!)

What makes this apartment unique

Our convenient edge of town location will save you time getting to all the places you want to go in "San Juan Country" yet provide you with a quiet and peaceful night's sleep, privacy and beautiful mountain views from every window.

Award Winning Cow Creek Suite: Edge-Of-Town Quiet & Convenience With Great Views
average rating of 5.0 based on 54 reviews

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for five fabulous days. Completely as described. Large apartment on the second floor, bright, clean, spacious, and well-equipped. WiFi worked beautifully. We were extremely comfortable here, "home away from home" describes it well. Quiet, with great accessibility to surrounding sites and scenic drives. Lovely view of the San Juan Mountains. We never met the owners but really appreciated the care they put into this place! We'd definitely stay here again.

Colorado Elk Hunting 2016

  • 5 of 5

While my husband was hunting at the lodge, I and family stayed at the condo at Cow Creek. It is a cozy "home away from home" location. We chose the upstairs rental because it had two bedrooms and washing facilities as well as kitchen, dining and family room. We had a choice of a front and back deck to enjoy. It was very clean with items one would need to cook and serve. Since I always use VRBO to find locations for rental, I knew that this rental would meet my expectations as well. Was able to meet and visit with Bob and Mary Beth... very nice couple that had our interest at heart while our stay there in their condo. That you for a very nice condo!! October18th through October 30th, 2016.

Clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were very pleased with our stay. The property was very clean and tidy. It was also just far enough removed from the road to be peaceful and quiet while still being easily accessible. The view was outstanding as well. We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice, as usual!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stayed in Cow Creek, so this should say a lot about the property and the owners, Mary Beth and Bob. They are super nice people.

Cow Creek is a fantastic place, very clean, centrally located for many activities and fine restaurants in Ridgway and it has A/C! For sure we will rent again next year.

Thank you Mary Beth and Bob
