The living/dining room area has a fireplace that offers a cozy space to gather and relax. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you would need to make a family dinner.
The main level has a bedroom with queen bed, a bedroom with two twins, and a full bath. A master bedroom with queen bed, small private deck, satellite TV, and full bath are on the upper level. The lower level of the home is the family room with satellite TV and queen sleeper sofa.
The Overlook House is located just a few miles north of downtown Ouray, just a short drive from shops, galleries, restaurants and the hot springs.
Ridgway is also close-by, with fishing, boating, and a shopping/restaurant district of its own, as well as an event center and fairgrounds.
Overlook House is truly a perfect vacation home! For winter stays (November 1 to May 1), a 4WD or AWD vehicle is required.

ABOUT THE AREA: You will want to spend several days in beautiful Ouray County. Ouray, which is known as the "Switzerland of America," is nestled in a small valley with 360-degree views of 12,000-14,000 mountains. Ridgway, nicknamed the "Gateway to the San Juans," is just 10 miles from Ouray and is well-known as the place where the John Wayne movie "True Grit" was filmed. Many of the movie set's buildings are still used today by local businesses. These two historic towns offer a variety of activities: restaurants, shops, museums, galleries, hot springs pools, jeep rentals, hiking, fishing and boating -- the list goes on and on! Day trips to Silverton, Telluride and Durango are fun as well.
Ouray is also often called "The Jeeping Capital of the World" because of its many trails through the high country (rated easy to rugged), popular for 2-wheel and 4-wheel off road vehicles.
Golf is available at beautiful Divide Ranch Golf Club located on Log Hill Mesa just above Ridgway, offering panoramic mountain views. Telluride and Montrose also have golf courses.
Ouray and Ridgway both offer local markets, and you can find larger stores like City Market, Safeway, Target and Walmart in Montrose, a flat, easy drive 35 miles from Ouray, 25 miles from Ridgway.
No matter how long you decide to stay, you will find yourself wanting to come back again and again to Ouray County, one of the most beautiful places on earth!
This is a beautiful home in a beautiful place. I’ve been vacationing in the Ouray/Ridgway area for over 20 years. Ouray is my version of paradise in any season and this house is the best. It has all comforts of home with plenty of space. The house gives one the feel of quiet country seclusion while being conveniently located just outside Ouray. The stars are beautiful from the large deck!
We really enjoyed our time in Ouray and the house was beautiful!!! Thank you all so much for making sure we had a crockpot so our dinner would be ready after a long day of jeep trails! It was honestly just like being at home (but the scenery is much better).. I like to cook so I had everything at my finger tips. Thank you, Thank you! We will use OVR for our next trip!!
