"We decided to rent a home to stay in while visiting Ouray this time. This home is in a nice, quiet area near town. The Uncompahgre River runs out front by the highway, maybe a quarter of a mile from the house. The home backs up to a creek that ran the whole time we were there. The creek is on private property and there is a short concrete wall that separates the properties, but it can clearly be seen and heard. We kept the sliding patio door open most of the time, with the screen closed, just for the wonderful air and sound of the creek. There is a fire pit behind the property that we did not use. We didn't have a chance to use the grill, sadly. The creek runs along one side, and behind that is a mountain. There were several houses in this area, but the only one that you really see is across the street and we never heard a peep out of them. The house is surrounded by tall, mature trees, so all in all, it feels very private and secluded. The kitchen is very well stocked as was the rest of the home. Washer and dryer were great. House was clean. Beds comfy. Master bath had a shower, hall bath had a tub/shower combo. We all commented on how great the water pressure was in the showers! My only issue was that the hall bath does not have a true door, but an accordion door. I can see how a regular door would be near impossible to have open into the bathroom and having one in the hall would be a space issue, but a wooden pocket door with a lock would make it feel more private. If it is only kids using it, it might not be such a big deal to them, but we had a two year old with us and we were in constant fear of her figuring out how to open the door while we were in there! The home is updated and lovely and we would stay here again. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay in Ouray. The windows were AMAZING!!! I hate handwashing dishes (there is a dishwasher, though), but with the views from the kitchen window, I could do it all day. Don't pass up on this home! The owner is very pleasant to work with."
