TAKING RESERVATIONS FOR OPENING MAY 15, 2018. NOTE: WE DO NOT RENT TO OUTSIDE USA! - 3 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY. 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. 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, Grosbeaks, 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.
