About Gary Keffer

I'm a semi-retired veterinary surgeon. I've been a practicing veterinarian for over 42 years with a special focus on small animal orthopedic surgery. I now do limited referral surgery for veterinary practices in Texas, New Mexico, and soon again in Colorado.

I grew up on a small Wyoming ranch where our family actively did it all, from fixing fence to feeding the cattle during the winter, and of course watching the antelope play.

My dad was avid donor to the All-Around Cowboy at Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, giving the Champion Cowboy a new fancy two horse trailer for several years,and also supported with donations promotion efforts for the USA's largest rodeo.. We raised and showed horses in the Rocky Mountain area. It was a great way to grow up.

I've always loved the Colorado mountains, and with friends discovered Durango, Silverton, Ouray, and Telluride, Colorado years ago on Motorcycle trips on the"Million Dollar Highway." It soon became an annual venture to explore the mountain scenery. Once I discovered the fabulous Jeep trails around Ouray,, I was addicted. However after survivng a solo ATV rollover, i realized this is no country for the weak hearted.. It can be dangerous. The high mountain scenery will leave you breathless.....Bring your camera, and clothing for all seasons. I've seen incredible thunderstorms creep up your backside and make you tremble as you seek worth the experience!

I purchased a historical 3 story Ouray home in September 2014, and remodeled the home. It now is a 3 bed upper condo, and a 4 bed lower condo, and thirdly, my own private Man Cave that I call Buck's Hacienda. All three are available for guests to rent. My house is 1 city block south of the Ouray Hot Springs Pool and Spa.

My many guests over the past few years have become personal friends, as we've shared our adventure stories on the patio.

Gary Keffer purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gary Keffer chose Southwestern Colorado

Welcome! The views from this house are amazing. Whether you pick the upstairs unit or the downstairs, they both have very unique qualities.

It's an easy walk to downtown, and only 1 block to the Ouray Hot Springs and Spa, 3 blocks west to the river walk

Perfectly located on the edge of town for easy access to shop or start outdoor adventures. Ample parking for recreational vehicles.

What makes this condo unique

I fell in love with this house partly because of the location and partly for it's history. THIS HOME IS A HISTORICAL LANDMARK. The original owners settled here in around 1890, built there small home here, at what later became 10th and Main They were very involved in the community. Their descendants leased the adjacent property that became the historic ballpark to Ouray for $1.00 for a 100 year lease in 1917.

The downstairs unit has a swing in the front so I can look at the mountains. The views are amazing . The deer love to look inside as they eat our flowers. Often times we can watch the deer from our kitchen window grazing in the park This is just a great location!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for an awesome stay! We really enjoyed your home and Ouray. Hope to come back again. Thanks!

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, beautiful scenery, clean and comfortable, lots of room, all you could possibly want and need provided. This house/location is "a can't lose" choice. In addition to being an excellent place to stay, Gary (the owner) makes the booking process easy and comfortable. He seemed sincere with his efforts to insure a positive experience.

However...there was one negative thing...Leaving!!!!!

Excellent location; great owner

  • 5 of 5

We held our family reunion in Ouray and rented out both condos in this house. The owner was very friendly and quickly addressed a couple minor issues we faced. The fact that the house is directly across the park from the famed Ouray Hot Springs Pool was awesome! And since the house is on the main retail street of the town, it had quick access to coffee, groceries, and other shopping.
