Ouray House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths with shower, (Sleeps 7)

Ouray- Colorado-45 minutes from Telluride. Nestled in the San Juan Mountains and within easy walking distance to anywhere in town. The Cartier Victorian House is your home away from home from May 1 - December 1. The house is currently not offered during the winter months

An 1882 Victorian home lovingly restored by the owners. This Victorian getaway offers the best of old and new; exquisite wood work, antique furnishings, large claw footed tub with shower, fully equipped contemporary kitchen, laundry facilities and breathtaking views from a fenced in yard. The house sleeps four to seven people and is the perfect retreat for couples and families.

Take in the majestic beauty of the Rocky Mountains by foot, by 4WD jeep or just from the front porch. Stroll along the Uncompahgre River in the rural Colorado countryside and then relax at the end of the day in the natural hot springs that abound in the area, all amidst the most beautiful area in North America.

Every season in Ouray has something to offer, however the fall seems to be a well kept secret. The Aspens and Oak brush fall color change set amidst the Colorado Rockies with dotted timber building remnants of the mining days of this area, make this time of year a spectacular visual feast for travelers that are looking for undiscovered travel delights.

Ouray is just 45 minutes drive from Telluride, offering access to the same San Juan Mountains that the famous Telluride is nestled in. Our rates offer the best accommodation value in Ouray or Telluride.

Come and see for yourself- we would love to have you as guests in our holiday home.

Charming home, quiet in the heart of Ouray

  • 5 of 5

This charming Victorian was wonderfully close to everything this little town had to offer. The views from the side yard and (tiny) front porch of the surrounding peaks were inspiring. We were so glad we stayed right in town. The house was very comfortable and has a beautifully detailed interior with good kitchen. Gorgeous curving staircase could be an issue for someone with mobility issues. Highly recommend.

Wonderful Victorian House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house is very nicely done. It was clean and as advertised. Hard to believe the original house is 130 years old! Kitchen was very nice. Just a block off main street but so much quieter. There were 3 of us so the one shower was fine but do keep that in mind if you have a large group. Also, the stairs to upstairs bedrooms are narrow and steep; take your time if you are older like us! All in all, a great stay!

The best 4th of July experience ever! My family was very impressed with this house and all its amenities. The location in the town of Ouray was also liked, halfway between the ice cream shop and the hot springs pool. There was no disappointment with this home and we were already planning on our next visit before we left. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was way too short, as they always are, but this home is perfect for smaller groups from 3 to 5 people. Enough space for the three of us with all the comforts of home, including laundry. Communication was good from the time we booked all the way through arrival. The home is only one block off of main street, but you can't hear any of the activity from main street. Great hiking trails and two waterfalls within reasonable walking distance. The town grocery store and all the restaurants are also in easy walking distance. The mountains and surroundings are beautiful. If you can get to Ouray, do it. I would highly recommend this home as a rental.
