About Gary Keffer

I am a veterinarian from Kansas City, who fell in love with this house and Ouray. I visit frequently and when not here, both condo units are available. Four wheeling is one of my favorite activities! I've ventured on motorcycle from here south to Durango, then west to the Grand Canyon and into southern Utah It's all beautiful when touring from the motorcycle, or the high country by Jeep!! Create your own memories...

I will try to make your stay here as pleasant as possible, and will try to accommodate your special requests

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.

Easy family adventure

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 3 adults and 3 children had a fantastic stay in the lower condo. We could walk to all the shops/restaurants in town as well as to the hot springs, Cascade Falls and Box Canyon.

The kitchen had everything we needed and the owner was responsive and a pleasure to work with.

Perfect family location in beautiful town.

  • 5 of 5

Renting the upper condo was perfect for our family. It slept six adults and two young kids (3 & 1 year old) comfortably. The property is perfectly situated on the main street into town making for an easy walk to the shops, restaurants, and hot springs. Ouray is a beautiful little town with plenty for kids, young and old alike, to do. Gary, the property owner, is very accommodating ensuring that we had everything we needed and that the condo was clean and ready when we arrived. We'll definitely be back soon!
