Southwestern Colorado Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Everyone loves the cabin!

San Juan Chalet Cabin is located just 1.5 blocks from main street. So you can walk to everything in Ouray even the Hot Springs! San Juan Chalet Cabin has wonderful mountain views and a nice private yard surrounded by Lilac and Aspen trees. The Lilacs bloom in late May and early June. Our 'Cabin' is a favorite among return guests. It has an open field to the south and The Secret Garden B&B is directly to the west. We have a picnic table and grill so you can enjoy your meals outside and soak in the beautiful mountain scenery. We also have 2 King hotel style rooms on site if you have a bigger group. If you are traveling with young kids we have plenty of strollers and kid backpack carriers if you need to borrow one. We also run San Juan Mountain Guides so we know the area really well and would be happy to set up an adventure for you or give advice on where to go and what to do.

About ryan

Before settling on Ouray in 2001, I worked for the Black Canyon Ntl Park and the USFS around Montrose and Ouray. Since 2004 my husband Clint and I have ran and owned San Juan Mountain Guides, LLC. We love Ouray! There is so much to do here, ski, ice climb, hike, jeep, biking, rock climbing, history, art, and more!

ryan purchased this cabin in 2005

Clean and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place for my mom and her husband, wanting clean and affordable lodging for them near the 4J campground, where my husband and I were staying. The cabin was absolutely perfect, and they enjoyed their stay immensely. It is a quick walk to town, the campground, the river, hiking trails, shops, restaurants - everything! The host was super nice. She even contacted me after our trip to let me know she had found a pair of (my mom's) earrings after they had left, and mailed them to my mom, who lives on the East Coast. Very honest and kind.

Perfect getaway cabin

  • 5 of 5

This place was exactly what we were looking for: a clean, comfortable cabin for my girlfriend and I and our two dogs, that was also walkable to downtown. It's only three blocks from the main drag, meaning you can truly park your car and forget it about until it's time to leave. But it's also tucked away enough that it was quiet and peaceful at night. Ryan is the consummate host and did everything possible to make our stay as good as it could be. She truly went above and beyond. And Ouray speaks for itself; it's an amazing town with so much to do in and around town. We can't wait to come back to the Chalet and Ouray again!

Easy fixes

  • 4 of 5

Overall this is a great value. Clean, great location, dog friendly. Just needs a few basic additions. Two coffee cups instead of one. Shampoo. An iron to go with the ironing board in the closet. Otherwise we liked it!

Owner's Response: Hi Janet, I'm glad you liked the cabin. I usually have extra shampoos under the sink. I would have happily brought you more! I will get more coffee mugs, sometimes they disappear and I don't realize till someone tells me. We have an iron and board for guests too! We hope to have you again!! Thanks for saying with us!

Cozy comfort in beautiful mountain town!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the lower king room of the San Juan Chalet. As others before us have reported, this is a most perfect spot if spending time in Ouray. The room was spotless, comfortable, quiet and a convenient walk to anywhere in town.

We enjoyed several restaurants in town, Brew Pub, Irish Pub, Buen Tiempo and the heartiest breakfast ever at Back Street Cafe!

Our favorite highlight of the stay was walking the entire Perimeter Trail. We suggest starting at the visitor's center for the best views of mountains and town.

We were here over the Easter holiday so the town was very quiet but we thoroughly enjoyed it's peacefulness.

Thank you, Ryan, (and Rebecca), for sharing this lovely space!

Cute lil cabin in town

  • 5 of 5

Great little cabin right in town. Ryan was so welcoming and helpful, she made us feel right at home. It was great to just park the car in the private drive and leave it. Restaurants, fabulous hiking, beautiful scenery, short walk to the hot springs and a dog friendly place were just what we wanted! We come down once or twice a year and it's so great to find a place that we love and that we can come back to year after year. This place had it all, it was comfortable and reasonably priced!! The cute cabin had everything. A full kitchen, comfy bed, a nice little yard and great shower. We cannot wait to come back.

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two year old daughter, and I stayed in the lower king room in early October for a quick fall color getaway. Being vacation rental owners ourselves, we were pleasantly impressed with the accommodations. The room was nice sized, very clean, tastefully furnished, and the bed was very comfortable! We can't wait to come back and hope to rent the cabin sometime as well! Thanks, Ryan, for a fantastic weekend in Ouray!
