Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

This mountain home is located on a corner lot in a private neighborhood 2 miles north of Ouray. There is a secluded patio with outdoor fire pit, shaded by Pine tress. The patio takes up much of the small back yard, but there is plenty of room in the front for kids to play! Over-sized attached 2 car garage. The original owners of this house built a small log cabin style house. A few years later they enlarged it by adding a large living room with an loft bedroom above it and a large 2 car garage with laundry and entryway. When we purchased this house in 2006, we renovated it from top to bottom, replacing the lovely 80's carpeting with wood flooring, a new kitchen and bath downstairs and a new enlarged bath upstairs, with a skylight in the large shower, allowing for a great view of the surrounding pines while showering.

When renovating, we turned the open loft bedroom over the living room into a semi-closed off bedroom by building a full height wall with double closets. There is still open space between the living room and the master bedroom, so there may be some noise that carries over. Living there, my husband and I had no problems, but if you have a large group, your experience may be different.

There is one bedroom downstairs with a full bath. Upstairs there are 2 large bedrooms, one with 2 queen beds, one with a king bed, and a large bathroom with double sinks and view shower. The living room has pullout sofa bed.

Quiet, yet close to town. Hiking trails within walking distance. An abundance of wildlife is visible regularly, birds, small animals, deer, elk, even bears!!

About Vicki Rooker

We are retired paramedics from San Francisco, resettled in the mountains to get away from the everyday hustle and bustle of city living. We had visited Ouray several times prior to our move and although the lifestyle change was 180 degrees, we have really enjoyed the quiet and slower pace of our mountains.

Vicki Rooker purchased this house in 2006

What makes this house unique

Master bedroom skylights allow views of the moon & stars as we fell asleep to the quiet with only water sounds from Corbett Creek to lull us to sleep or the occasional soft 'whump' of snow cascading off of the pine boughs in winter.

Best home in Ouray!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several homes in the area and this was one of the best! It is centrally located between Ouray and Ridgway in a quiet neighborhood near a creek. The home has plenty of room for 8 people; clean and well kept. TV, internet and Satellite all worked well and were easy to use. The washer and dryer are an added bonus. Vicki had lots of information at the home about things to do in the area and places for dining out. Kitchen was well stocked. It was wonderful to travel with our fury friends and Vicki was responsive and easy to work with. We are scheduled to stay again at the end of the summer. Vicki thank you for sharing your lovely home with us; our stay couldn't have been any better. C and B.

Nice house for smaller groups not good for larger groups

  • 2 of 5

Nice house and would be nice for smaller groups did not work for our group as you couldn't pass each other in the narrow kitchen and the master is open loft so you could hear everything. The upstairs bathroom is connected to master and upstairs bedroom which was really weird/awkward. Says sleeps 8-11 not enough towels for even 8 people. Little things where missing - no dish washer soap or trash bags

Beautiful Home, Great Location, Incredible Value!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning home and everything you need for a great stay. Vicki worked with us to provide the absolute best accommodations possible. They were there to walk us through the house and even set up the fireplace so that we just had to throw one match in. Perfect for a large group or a few families. We were able to cook in every night and our large group was able to spread out comfortably.

Looking forward to staying here again next year!

Large Mountain home near Ouray Colorado

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property for a week during the winter for 5 consecutive years. It is very well appointed with high quality kitchen appliances, the beds are great, and it has always been clean and welcoming. There are newly upgraded TV's and other amenities. I highly recommend this rental, except for the week I want to rent it again in 2018.

Comforting Christmas Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our family with 2 small children, parents and grandparents. We were even able to bring our family dog who thoroughly enjoyed spending Christmas with the family instead of a dog kennel. The area is truly magical surrounded by snow capped mountains and evergreens. We loved using the actual wood burning fireplace and the children loved sledding on the property. Thanks Vicki for sharing your beautiful mountain home with us!
