Ouray cabin description

CLOSING Oct. 31 - 3 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY. Faster if you EMAIL DIRECT TO nancyck10@gmail.com This new (2010) secluded, private cabin, nestled among beautiful Ponderosa Pine, Cedar, and Pinion trees, is located 3 miles north of Ouray, CO, right off the old narrow gauge railroad grade now County Road 17, and sits right next to the Uncompahgre River. The cabin has a large front deck which is great for relaxing and watching the river. Bring extra pillows and sleeping bags if you wish to sleep on the deck to enjoy the sound of the river. Views of the river and Mt. Abrams are spectacular. This is a great place for honeymooners who wish to be in a peaceful place, yet close enough to town for other activities. BUT IT IS DANGEROUS TO SLEEP ON THE GROUND BY THE RIVER, REMEMBER WE HAVE BEARS! RACCOONS! AND SKUNKS!
***Pets Cannot Be Left Alone At The Cabin and Must Be Supervised At All Times.***
Bird watchers will love this cabin where Hummingbirds, Chickadees, Steller’s Jays, Grosbecks, Nuthatches, Bald and Golden Eagles, and Red-Tailed Hawks abound. Wild animals such as white-tailed deer, elk, big horn sheep, and bears may be seen on their way to drink at the river. Caution should always be taken staying in the wild, wooded mountain areas and always watch your children and pets.

Star-gazing while watching the Milky Way, meteor showers, and other heavenly bodies here are exciting since the sky is so clear and the cabin is away from the big city lights that block the sky. Bring your telescope and/or binoculars for day and night use. The full Moon will astound you!

Staying at the Caretaker’s Cabin will give you a treasure chest full of memories that will entice you to return year after year.

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: OPEN NOW - UNTIL CLOSING. CALL FOR DETAILS. 3 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY. We do not maintain our calendar on VRBO so FOR A REAL PERSON CALL US AT 970-318-1133. Jim and Nancy Kendrick have lived in Ouray, CO for more than 28 years. Jim is originally from the Ventura, CA area and Nancy is from Houston, TX. They have both hiked, rock hunted, jeeped, and/or climbed practically every area in Ouray County and the surrounding areas. If they don't know how to find what you are looking for, they know someone who does. Feel free to ask for any information you might need.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ouray:
                  We chose to build the Caretaker's Cabin because we love the land, river and mountains here and we own a home and 5 acres right next door across the creek. It is so beautiful and has a hillside to the north that is covered in lupine flowers with delightful perfume every May and June. We offer this cabin to people to enjoy the quiet tranquility of nature in this special spot. We feel the seclusion, quiet and privacy of the area should appeal to people who want to 'get away from it all.' It is the only piece of property in Ouray County that is truly on the river out of town for rent.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  The Caretaker's Cabin is unique because it is right on the Uncompahgre River and the seclusion and privacy allows one to meditate, be at peace and one with nature without being too far removed. There is still TV and news, but no phones unless you bring your cell phone. With the peace and quiet there are many species of birds and animals that pass through the property. The picture postcard views of the river and mountains are great for artists and photographers alike. The Ute Indians used to come here to summer along the Uncompahgre River and believed in its healing properties. Just south of the cabin is the Dallas trailhead for hiking up into the mountains. From Ouray there are many other hiking trails. Be advised that our trails start at around 7,800 ft and many go as high as 14,000 ft. In Ouray, you can rent a jeep or take a jeep tour, go to the hot springs pool, walk around town to see the historic mining homes, or go to the historic mining museum. There are many places to shop and eat. Ten miles north of Ouray is Ridgway, CO, where you can eat and shop, too. Head a little west along Highway 62 and at the Dallas Divide you can see the panoramic view of the magnificent 14,000 ft. Sneffels Range of the San Juan Mountains.
