About Pattie

After visiting Ouray since 1987 we finally decided to become part of this magnificent place. We love sharing our little piece of paradise and continue to encourage family and friends to visit. Every one of them has expressed how beautiful this area is and can now see why we moved here. We've had tons of fun in the San Juan Mountains. Winter is our favorite time of year with plenty of snow fall followed by blue sky days and fantastic skiing in Telluride.

Pattie purchased this house in 2003

Why Pattie chose Southwestern Colorado

Ouray is one of the most beautiful places we ever traveled through, so we were thrilled to be able to own property here. This wooded property is located in the north corridor of the city limits, nestled between the canyon walls and only a short walk to the river trail, hot springs pool, or even downtown.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the surrounding beauty of the San Juan Mountains. View Mt Abrams and the canyon walls from the comfort of a recliner in the living room or while enjoying meals on the patio. If you are lucky, some wild life may wonder through the property. A two mile river walk is across the street. Walk/jog, snowshoe/cross country ski the loop or use it to walk to the hot springs or into town. There is so much to see and do. There are winter and summer activities. Our vacation home is 0.7 mile from the Ouray hot springs and 8 miles from Orvis hot springs. The nearest airports are in Montrose (35 miles) and Telluride (50 miles). Ouray and Telluride offer jeeping and hiking (guided or self); museums, quaint shops, and restaurants. The town of Ridgway (10 miles) offers the same activities along with kayaking, canoeing, boating, fishing, and the Ridgway State Park/Reservoir. Winter allows for cross country skiing, alpine skiing, ice climbing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a warm and welcoming home! We arrived to beautiful Christmas music playing, the smell of pine, the most exquisitely decorated Christmas tree, a box of Christmas chocolates and a huge bowl of red, green and silver wrapped candies! Interspersed through out the Stone House were delightful holiday touches...ornaments hanging in the window, a Christmas centerpiece on the table, a bowl of ornaments and candles on the mantel. All your little extras were huge for our family. You created a perfect holiday atmosphere for all of us to gather and celebrate. We are most grateful for your warm hospitality! Thank you!

Couldn't Be Better

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of grandparents, daughter, and 2 granddaughters had a wonderful week in Ouray at the Stone House. It was perfect for us. We were happy to get to meet Pattie the first night; she is very friendly and helpful. House set up was wonderful with lots of considerate extras provided. Photos were accurate. The house was spotless. We loved being near the River Walk so we could walk to the pool and to town especially on July 4th so we did not have to deal with traffic. We loved the outdoor patio area which has a spectacular view of the mountains and of the July 4th fireworks. Ouray is a beautiful town with wonderful hiking, the Hot Springs Pool and great ice cream. We will be back and hope to stay in the Stone House again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! I'm glad your family was able to spend such a wonderful week in Ouray. The 4th holiday is certainly one of the best times of the year. The River Walk is very popular with many guests. The Ouray Stone House looks forward to your return next year.

A Perfect Christmas Get Away, snow included!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Little Stone House in Ouray! Before, during and after our stay the owner was so friendly and helpful; she even put up a Christmas tree and holiday decorations. Not only did the home meet our expectations from the photos and written description, it exceed them! The four bedrooms, were ideal for the 6 adults and 1 toddler, who had his own room, much to everyone's delight. There are so many little things that are provided, the kitchen felt like my own, there was nothing I needed/wanted that was not there, peelers, graters, measuring cups, spoons, and pitchers, big pans, little pans, roasters, everything (except we would have preferred sharper knives) The owner went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant, comfortable and truly wonderful! Thank You, Pattie for a Perfect Christmas Get Away!

Owner's Response: I'm very happy that everyone had a wonderful Christmas. There are two self sharpening knives in the drawer; however, I will definitely look into sharper knives.

Great Spot in Ouray!

  • 5 of 5

This was my third try at VRBO. My earlier two stays were just OK. This stay was great! The property is immaculate, and the owner wants it to stay that way. Is slightly outside of town, in a quiet area. Based on this stay, my wife will let me reserve another VRBO property!

The owner had everything ready for us when we arrived, including having music playing in the house. We had a multiple family vacation and this house is perfect!

Ouray Stone House

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home for us to spend time in in Ouray. Friends came from PA to see us there and we all had a great time! The house was big enough for us to all spread out and relax and Pattie had anything we could possibly need. It was great to have a fully equipped kitchen so we could cook together and eat together! I would stay here any time I could!

Everything is as Promised. Clean, Comfortable and Spacious

  • 4 of 5

The home is extremely well kept, nearly spotless. Pattie clearly takes her responsibility as an "inkeeper" seriously. Easily sleeps 6 adults and a couple of kids to boot. While not located in the white-hot center of Ouray we found this to be an advantage as the main drag can get quite congested during the day. The walk in to town is a delightful 20 minute jaunt that follows the river and passes the hot springs park.

The only (minor) shortcoming is with the common areas. Given the home's sleeping capcacity both the kitchen and living area are a bit on the small side. The kitchen in particular can't have more than two people working at the same time. Also note that the second bathroom is in the living room area, apart from the bedrooms.

Finally, be aaware that the home is is listed for sale and you may be asked if it is O.K. to have the realtor stop by with prospective buyers. Pattie made it clear that it was fine us to say no, but for us it was not a bother.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your detailed review of the Ouray Stone House, and for noticing our attention to cleanliness. Yes, we take our responsibilities very seriously! We strive for perfection, ... and try to exceed guest expectations. I think your introductory sentence hits the nail on the head - "Clean, Comfortable and Spacious". Most of our guests appreciate the comfy / coziness of this charming eclectic home. Time, and multiple successive owners, have put a quirky personality in this unique space. While cozy we have seating for eight. There is a full bathroom with tub/shower in the bedroom area. Our guests love having laundry on site, so we added one in the second bathroom. We love happy guests! The galley kitchen is terrific for one couple to create meals for a small group. As you pointed out, however, we gladly accept eight guests, and there is sleeping space for eight, including two bathrooms, plus laundry. The home, like many others in the area, has been for sale this past summer. I always accompany the walk-throughs, as our guests are our highest priority. In fact, we call before and make sure it’s OK. We’ve had only 2 showings this summer, but if a showing would coincide with a time you’ll be in the house, we have decided to offer a gift card for your trouble. Along with our strong belief and commitment to guest satisfaction, the house "for sale" listing terminates on October 15, 2014, and will not impact future guests in the negative.
