Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Having lived in the mountains all of our adult lives, we built this house in 1994 as the ultimate mountain lodge with long winters in mind. No cabin fever here! We are career cooks and hosts, and MARJOLAINE'S is our catering business for film fests, farmers markets,private events and all music fests.

Why the Owner Chose Ophir:
The Ophir Valley is irresistible for those who dream of living in a real mountain setting. The views are in-your-face, 360° of spectacular! That's a fact! Although only 22 minutes to Telluride ski lifts, Ophir is a whole other world away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We offer an inviting ambience in a spectacular setting in all seasons. We built WATERFALL CANYON House with three levels, each providing it's own privacy and amenities. We have a full professional kitchen, to accommodate our love for cooking and baking which we enjoy sharing with guests. To keep things cozy, there is a wood stove with enough firewood for an Ophir winter; and gas fireplaces upstairs and in Apt. A sauna, outdoor hot tub, and steam shower are there to enjoy after a day of winter sports, or of magnificent high Mountain Hiking. Like our cottage in Amagansett in the Hamptons of Long Island, NY, Ophir is INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL, but at times challenging. That's why, having the experience of living in these mountains for 40+ years, we're always accessible.
