Had a wonderful stay at Hot Springs Condos

  • 5 of 5

Can't express enough how much we enjoyed our stay at Hot Springs Condos at Ouray CO. The accommodations were fantastic and the location and views were perfect. We also could not have had a better host in Gary Keffer. He was very friendly and attentive to our needs and had a great time talking with him and jeeping in the mountains. We will definitely stay with him again!

Wonderful Condos in Downtown Ouray

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of people, mostly retired, who love to hike. We rented the upper and lower condos four nights in July, and couldn't be more pleased that we did. Location is walking distance to everywhere downtown and a block from beautiful non-sulfur hot springs pools. Both condos were comfortable, well equipped and very clean. Owner Gary has paid attention to suggestions from clients and he was extremely helpful to us.

We had short drives to some of the most beautiful hiking we have ever done. We are telling our friends about our great experience and will return in the next year or two.

Awesome place, perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

There were eight of us overall, 4 adults and 4 children. We rented both condos for 5 nights and it couldn't have been better. We were able to grill and listen to the concert in the park right from the deck. Easy to walk to everything we needed. Downstairs condo is a little more well equipped with kitchen supplies, but over all both places were very nice and Gary was extremely welcoming.

About Gary Keffer

I'm a semi-retired veterinary surgeon. I've been a practicing veterinarian for over 42 years with a special focus on small animal orthopedic surgery. I now do limited referral surgery for veterinary practices in Kansas, Texas, New Mexico, and soon again in Colorado.

I grew up on a small Wyoming ranch where our family actively did it all, from fixing fence to feeding the cattle during the winter, and of course watching the antelope play.

My dad was avid donor to the All-Around Cowboy at Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, giving the Champion Cowboy a new fancy two horse trailer for several years, and also supported with donations promotion efforts for the USA's largest rodeo.. We raised and showed horses in the Rocky Mountain area. It was a great way to grow up.

I've always loved the Colorado mountains, and with friends discovered Durango, Silverton, Ouray, and Telluride, Colorado years ago on Motorcycle trips on the"Million Dollar Highway." It soon became an annual venture to explore the mountain scenery. Once I discovered the fabulous Jeep trails around Ouray,, I was addicted. However after survivng a solo ATV rollover, i realized this is no country for the weak hearted.. It can be dangerous. The high mountain scenery will leave you breathless.....Bring your camera, and clothing for all seasons. I've seen incredible thunderstorms creep up your backside and make you tremble as you seek shelter worth the experience!

I purchased a historical 3 story Ouray home in September 2014, and remodeled the home. It now is a 3 bed upper condo, and a 4 bed lower condo, and thirdly, my own private Man Cave that I call Buck's Hacienda. All three are available for guests to rent. My house is 1 city block south of the Ouray Hot Springs Pool and Spa.

My many guests over the past few years have become personal friends, as we've shared our adventure stories on the patio.

Gary Keffer purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gary Keffer chose Ouray

Welcome! The views from this house are amazing. Whether you pick the upstairs unit or the downstairs, they both have very unique qualities.

It's an easy walk to downtown, and only 1 block to the Ouray Hot Springs and Spa, 3 blocks west to the river walk

Perfectly located on the edge of town for easy access to shop or start outdoor adventures. Ample parking for recreational vehicles.

What makes this condo unique

I fell in love with this house partly because of the location and partly for it's history. THIS HOME IS A HISTORICAL LANDMARK. The original owners settled here in around 1890, built there small home here, at what later became 10th and Main They were very involved in the community. Their descendants leased the adjacent property that became the historic ballpark to Ouray for $1.00 for a 100 year lease in 1917.

The downstairs unit has a swing in the front so I can look at the mountains. The views are amazing . The deer love to look inside as they eat our flowers. Often times we can watch the deer from our kitchen window grazing in the park This is just a great location!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for an awesome stay! We really enjoyed your home and Ouray. Hope to come back again. Thanks!
