  • PERFECT. I didn't want to leave!

    "I had an amazing vacation at this condo. It felt like home, it had everything we needed in the kitchen and Valli was very helpful in every way. The condo was perfectly situated on the mountain for both hiking and walking to town. My favorite part was relaxing on the balcony and watching all the bikers and dogs play at the mountain base. The condo has two queen beds so it was perfect for 4 adults. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return visit."

  • Great Cabin!

    "This is a great cabin in Lake City! The pictures and information accurately describe the cabin. We have stayed here twice during the Fall season over the last couple of years, and we will definitely return. The cabin is super clean thanks to the owners who truly care for their cabins and for their guests. It is very adequately stocked with nice kitchen appliances, cooking utensils, bath items, etc. so just bring your jacket, clothes and any food/condiments/etc. that you might want. There is a little grocery store just down the road if you need to buy anything for cooking. There is a nice picnic table and charcoal grill on one side of the cabin. We cooked or grilled every night of our stay. The bed in the loft is very comfortable which is something we always appreciate when we are away from home. The bathroom is very nice and clean. This cabin is cozy and comfortable, and we enjoyed sitting in front of a nice fire in the fireplace each morning. We sat out on the front deck each evening after fishing, and one evening we were visited by a deer just a few feet away as she walked through the area eating grass! We had a great time! We love the Lake City area, and this cabin is a great place to stay!"

  • Perfect location - gorgeous views

    "We have vacationed in Ouray 7 times; my sister & her family have been here 10 times. This townhome is by far our favorite spot. We absolutely loved everything about it. Four bedrooms meant adults upstairs, boys & girls downstairs. The kitchen was well equipped with a variety of dishes plus there was spices, condiments, etc that we could use if we needed to for cooking. The living space was so open. And the view from the front windows...gorgeous. It was tastefully decorated and clean. There was plenty of room for us to hang out together or find a niche to read a book in private. The washer & dryer were great - especially after being stranded on a hiking trail in the rain! The outdoor grilling area was very nice for the evenings we dined at home. Being right across from the Ouray Hot Springs was an added bonus. It gave all of us freedom to come and go as we pleased for soaks in the pool. The internet connection was a little slow on occasion but hey, we were on vacation! I cannot wait to come back. THANK YOU for allowing your home to be used by others who love Ouray."
