About Chris Bettin

Chris & Dylan live in Durango, Colorado. Ouray is their home away from home, a veritable Mayberry where life moves at a slower pace amidst awe inspiring beauty.

Chris Bettin purchased this house in 2006

Why Chris Bettin chose Southwestern Colorado

We were visiting Ouray one day just after Dylan was born - taking the long morning walk with the new baby to give the rest of the family some sleep. We came across this home right across from the river just north of the hot springs. It was love at first sight.

What makes this house unique

The relaxing atmosphere at the house is a respite for the family. There's something truly unique about the Ucompahgre River valley. The Ute Mountain Utes ascribed spiritual influence on the sense of peace and serenity that permeates the valley and it's waters. Whatever the reason, we have found the area to almost instantly vanquish the stressors of our daily lives. Whether it's hot soak in the hot springs or hot tub, a hike or Nordic ski session on the trail right outside the front door, or one of the many other pursuits Ouray is famous for, we always come away rested and restored.

Excellent choice for a stay in Ouray!

  • 5 of 5

This Luxury Riverside Home is exactly that! We found the home to be very clean and nicely furnished. The upgrades in the kitchen and bathrooms were very, very nice. The home has a great floorplan and worked well for our family of four including our dog. The master bedroom was comfortable and with the windows open at night we could hear the rush of the river at night. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need including top notch appliances, oversized refrigerator and range. The hot tub and large deck were great outside features as was the river close by for morning walks with our dog. Lots of attention to detail make this a great choice for a place to stay in Ouray!

What a beautiful home for our family of 7!!! Something for everyone! We brought our 5 children, ages 5 through 18 and we created memories of a lifetime! The house was immaculate! The hot tub was superb. We swam in the hot springs daily and enjoyed the rooftop of the Ouray Brewery!! Best hot sauce on the planet! We drove to Silverton and also rode the FREE gondola from Mountain Village to Telluride! We cooked almost all of our meals in the state of the art kitchen and all slept soundly in the comfortable beds! Loved every inch of Ouray, made possible by this amazing vacation property. CanNOT WAIT to come back!! Maybe next year??!!!! Thanks Chris!! Sincerely, one VERY happy Allenbaugh Family!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Retreat for employees

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home, very clean. I took my employees for a weekend getaway. The kitchen was great well stocked with dishes and pots and pans to make any kind of meal. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, the bathrooms nicely designed. Hot tub was nice. loved the games. Enjoyed watching all the chipmunks.Just wish check-out time was later 11 instead of 10:00. that extra hour would be nice.

Rained the whole time and Hot Springs was closed for cleaning. but we made the best of it. Wasn't ever given directions to house, googled it though. Finally found it. Glad it wasn't dark.

Great experience, would stay again.

Owner's Response: Roberta, Thank you so much for your stay at our home. I'm sorry the weather didn't cooperate with your visit this time. We hope you'll return some other time when the sun is shining. I wish we had known you wanted a late checkout. We're certainly happy to grant additional time as long as we don't have someone coming into the home right behind you. All instructions on the property including directions were sent via an automated system from VRBO. I'm sorry they were somehow missed, and would have been happy to manually send them had I known you were missing them. Thanks again for your stay. We'd love to offer a repeat guest discount the next time around.

Great home in an outstanding location.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, Chris made us feel right at home. The home was clean and ready for us to enjoy - He even had a bottle of wine and two glasses waiting for us.

The beds were comfortable and the furniture was relaxing. We took several opportunities to enjoy the hot tub in some cold weather...One morning it was 27 degrees and the hot tub kept us warm!

Ouray is a wonderful town with character. If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy some winter sports, I highly recommend this home. It is situated in the heart of it all: Nordic skiing; downhill skiing; snowmobiling; ice climbing; and sledding!
