Property description

Custom built in 2007, Cow Creek Suite's immaculate and luxuriously comfortable accommodations, the quiet edge-of-town location and affordable rates have combined to make it one of Ridgway's most popular vacation rentals. And when readers of the Ouray County Plaindealer were asked in 2013 to name the best lodging in the County they voted Cow Creek Suite second only to the City of Ouray's iconic Beaumont Hotel - recognizing Cow Creek Suite as one of your top lodging options in all of Ouray County as well.

With great second-story views of adjacent meadows and the surrounding San Juan Mountains, you will love this family friendly, two-bedroom property featuring private full bath, laundry, and fully-equipped kitchen and dining facilities. The suite is smoke and pet free and features allergen barrier bedding and an AccuClean(TM) Whole Home Air Filtration System.

Offering 1,000 square feet of living space, the large, open great room and vaulted ceilings throughout provide spacious living quarters. Private decks facing east and west let you enjoy sun or shade any time of day. With a queen bed in one bedroom and two twin beds in the other, the suite comfortably sleeps four (five with a youngster on the available cot).

With 400 thread-count 100% cotton sheets, plush carpeting, high-speed, secure wireless internet service, premium HDTV service from Dish Network with 'The Hopper', custom woodwork and historical area photographs and art, this spacious suite is outfitted to be your favorite home away from home.

The convenient, edge-of-town location is as quiet as it gets, yet directly across the street you can access Ridgway's network of wide, pedestrian and bike friendly sidewalks for a quick, easy walk or ride into the center of town and all of Ridgway's many fine restaurants, shops, and attractions - including the Ridgway Visitor Center, Railroad Museum, Town Park, County Fairgrounds, and the River Trail. (The River Trail traverses the Uncompahgre River corridor to Dennis Weaver Memorial Park, Ridgway State Park, and the awesome hiking trails and single track mountain bike paths surrounding Ridgway.)

SUMMER GUESTS PLEASE NOTE! Thanks in part to a growing family of repeat guests, half the suite's summer dates are typically reserved by January 1st so if you have specific dates in mind please book early.

If Cow Creek Suite is booked for the dates you want and you're a party of just one or two guests, be sure and check out our brand new Cow Creek Suite For Two. Just type its vrbo property ID number (597318) in the vrbo.com search bar, check the calendar and let us know if any of its open dates work for you.

VRBO Bear stayed here:


This apartment is ideally located right in Ridgway and offers one of the best views of the mountains. Close to everything on the Western Slope, when you stay here, you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of it all.

Thanks to the hosts' attention to detail, this mountain retreat feels like brand new and the extra details like fluffy bath towels and extra blankets made it special. The beds were comfortable and the rooms quite spacious. The kitchen is stocked with spices and everything else you need to prepare a home cooked meal.

The abundance of windows made it perfect for viewing the snow-capped mountains. At night, the stars seemed like giant clusters of lights. Amazing how many more there are when the city lights don’t interfere! The two decks made star gazing a nightly ritual.

I spent a cool afternoon shopping in the quaint stores in nearby Ouray. A late afternoon snow shower gave me a chance to enjoy an early dinner at The Ouray Brewery. With the sun shining and warm winds, some hiking near the waterfall the next day was just the ticket.

This Ridgway suite was ‘just right’ for this Colorado mountain loving Bear. I know you’ll enjoy it too!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Hi I'm Mary Beth - husband Bob and I have been offering vacation rentals to travelers to our area since 2007. I've lived in Ouray County since 1974 and Bob since 1999 and we enjoy sharing what we've learned about this special place we call home and its many attractions. We look forward to hosting you and your family and promise to do our best to make Cow Creek Suite For Two your favorite home away from home!

Why the Owner Chose Ridgway:
Cow Creek Suite is ideally located between Telluride and Ouray along the San Juan Skyway, perhaps the most scenic of the entire Colorado Scenic and Historic Byway System. This paved highway forms a 236 mile loop in the southwest part of Colorado traversing the heart of the San Juan Mountains. The property is just 37 scenic highway miles from Telluride's incredible snow skiing and summer festivals, yet only a short walk or drive to Ridgway and Ouray's natural hot springs, unique historic attractions, affordable shops, great restaurants and limitless outdoor adventures. (Think Outside!)

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our convenient edge of town location will save you time getting to all the places you want to go in San Juan Country yet provide you with a quiet and peaceful night's sleep, privacy and beautiful mountain views from every window.
