About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Custom built in 2007, Cow Creek Suite's immaculate and luxuriously comfortable accommodations, 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 960 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, dedicated high-speed and password protected wireless internet service by CenturyLink, premium HDTV service by 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 such as the Ridgway Visitor Center, Railroad Museum, Town Park, County Fairgrounds, and 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 (16 of our 2017 bookings were returning guests) half our summer dates are typically reserved by January so if you have specific dates in mind please book early.

WEEKLY RATES: We have always offered our guests every 7th night free however the HomeAway/VRBO System is no longer capable of accurately quoting this so please inquire at 970.275.4700 so we can manually generate an accurate quote for you. Note that during our Mid-Summer Season this offer requires a Saturday check-in.

MONTHLY RATES: During the months of November through April this unit is only available on a calendar month basis (anywhere from one to six months) at a fully furnished, all-inclusive rent equating to $1695/month, dropping to $1595/month on rentals of three months or more and $1495/month for all six months. Included are all utilities and town services (water and sewer, weekly trash and recyclables pick up), dedicated and password protected high-speed wireless internet service from CenturyLink, premium HDTV service including "The Hopper" from Dish Network, and one professional housecleaning per month. There are no taxes on monthly rentals, however the HomeAway/VRBO system cannot accurately quote this so please call us at 970.275.4700 to be sure you get this special rate.

NOT AVAILABLE? 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 ground floor studio apartment we call Cow Creek Suite For Two. Just type its vrbo property ID number (597318) in the vrbo search bar, check the calendar and let us know if any of its open dates work for you.

To help ensure your safety and the quality of your rental experience the Town of Ridgway and County of Ouray have established standards that all short-term rental properties within their jurisdictions must meet in order to be licensed to operate. Cow Creek Suite operates under License No. STR2017-16 issued by the Town of Ridgway (see photo).

About Mary Beth and Bob

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 your favorite home away from home!

Mary Beth and Bob purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Mary Beth and Bob 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!)

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Reviews

Southwest CO 2 bedroom near SanJuanMtns

VRBO Bear stayed here

May 27, 2011

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! The VRBO Bear

Peaceful Getaway preferable to Ouray

  • 5 of 5

My husband kept saying, "You really scored with this place!" all weekend while we relaxed at Mary Beth and Bob's VRBO. The whole place was inviting, comfortable and demonstrated attention to detail in the special touches like soft towels and linens, a super comfy bed, an assortment of pillow types to choose from, nice light fixtures with dimmers on everything including special lighting around the living space. We were so happy to have stayed in the nicer ambiance of Ridgeway than Ouray for our stay as well. BTW the stars were just beautiful as we gazed at them from the back deck! We would definitely return here on our next visit to the area.

Perfect vacation place

  • 5 of 5

Great Location.....food and gas are nearby. Close to ATV trails like the Alpine Loop and Imogene Pass. Not too far over to Telluride either. It has cable, a kitchen and internet. What more do you want? It's clean and quiet as well.

Perfect location....

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this spacious two bedroom apt. One of the best VRBOs we have visited. Nice views from east and west facing decks. So convenient to easily get to Ouray and Telluride. Ridgway is very pleasant too! Fun to walk around and easily accessible from the apt.
