Property Details

Updated: Oct 16, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

This 4 bedroom, 2 1/4 bath home is located at an approximate elevation of 8400 feet just between Ouray and Ridgway. Enjoy the spectacular view of Mt. Sneffels from the great room and master suite, then gaze down to the Ridgway Valley from the private master suite deck. The home is decorated with cabin and western theme furnishings, and features vaulted wood ceilings, wood floors, rustic slate floors in the kitchen and bathrooms. The master suite is on the upper level with a second bedroom/den on the main level and two additional bedrooms in the lower level. The great room is the perfect place to sip a cup of coffee while watching the clouds float over one of the most amazing mountain ranges in the country. Or, if you are feeling adventurous, slip outside and relax in the hot tub with fresh air views of the surrounding mountain peaks and valleys. Located in a gated community, on an incredibly scenic 4.5 mile climb out of Ouray, this home is the epitome of a mountain getaway. Whether you like fishing, skiing, playing in the snow, biking, 4-wheeling, soaking in the hot springs, hiking, or just relaxing, the Ouray area offers it all. Please be aware that most roads in Ouray County are NOT paved. Although the road to our home is maintained, it does climb to an elevation of 8400 feet on a winding view-packed road. Low clearance cars are not recommended.

Amazing Home with Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon over 4 years ago, the first week in August 2010. I honestly forgot to write a review then, but we are looking to come back now with more of our family. This home was a perfect place for our honeymoon - we brought our dogs with us and were able to not only enjoy this wonderful home and each other, but share it with our pups. The fireplace was so nice and the hot tub facing Mt Sneffels but incredible (could easily & comfortably fit 6 people). There is more than enough space for families or a group of friends alike. We hiked up the roads right from the house, saw elk wander by the deck and ventured into Ouray and Ridgeway, both just a short drive away. Reservations were very simple to make. We highly recommend this home for any vacation where you want to enjoy the outdoors with the comforts of a fully stocked and beautiful home. You must take the mule tour in Ouray too - so fun and a great historical tour of the town. We look forward to going back soon!

It was a good thing we got there in the daytime because it was a little difficult to find the first time. From the moment we saw it we were pleased. When we went inside, it was even more amazing! The view is spectacular and the accommodations were perfect. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful Location, Perfect Family Destination

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this home in August. The road leading to the house is lined with lots of vegetation and Aspen trees, and as we turned one corner, there was a bear cub on the side eating rasberries. Our kids were so excited! The home was lovely as well, with huge windows and a large deck to sit on and look at Sneffel's Peak. We watched a storm move right over the mountain range, and although it never reached us, you could still smell the rain. One of our favorite features was the picnic sized kitchen table that we sat around and played games on every night. The house is furnished comfortably, and was very clean. We would definitely go back! One word of caution...if you are pulling a trailer (we had our Jeep on a trailer), the road up to the house has a few tight turns, so go slow!

Activity and Interests

The "Switzerland of America", Ouray's natural landscape is majestic and amazing! Enjoy the beauty of a copper colored mountaintop at over 12,000 ft in elevation. Feel the cool spray from rushing water over a mountain precipice. Catch a glimpse of an elk, deer or mountain goat munching on native grasses, or laugh over the antics of the many chipmunks, marmots and pika that run across the landscape. Ouray's outdoor playground leaves noone behind when it comes to rock climbing, jeeping, trail hiking, photography, shopping, swimming, fishing and just about any other adventure you can think of!
