About the Property
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)
There is a 400 sq ft deck that gives you private views of the Chief Ouray Mine, Cascade Falls, the Amphitheatre and Twin Peaks. In addition there is a small breakfast balcony facing Main Street with a giant Douglas fir just to the south providing shade and privacy to those who want to see what is going on around town.
The Ouray Alchemist is a long-time project for Curtis and Nancy. Curt has been collecting pharmacy artifacts for many years. The commercial space features a historical collection of pharmacy memorabilia dating back to 350 BC. The collection is a tribute to the history of pharmacy, containing many hand-blown label-under-glass bottles with the original drugs (herbs and roots) with an emphasis toward mining and Colorado pharmacy history (such as the oldest written prescription in Colorado). It is a memorable tribute to pharmacy worth seeing during your stay. Pharmacists Curt and Nancy will do the best to make your visit well worth it. The Ouray Alchemist, what we call our retail area and museum, has just been featured on the cover of Bottles and Extras - Jan/Feb issue along with an article. We are also having an article written about us in GV Magazine. This stands for Grand Valley and is mainly distributed around the Grand Junction area. Grand Junction is just a two hour drive from Ouray.
The Ouray Alchemist building is unique to the Ouray area. Enjoy the whimsical finial portraying the sun, moon and stars. The gargoyles positioned on the four corners of the copper-domed tower by tradition offer protection and happiness to those who enjoy this incredible suite.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Originally from the Midwest Curt and Nancy took different paths to Colorado before meeting in 2002 at Aspen Drug in Aspen CO. Pursuing his long-term dream of having a historic pharmacy collection exhibit led Curt to purchase fixtures to restore from Aspen Drug which was closing. Since all fixtures were for sale Nancy having worked there eleven years was thrown in the deal...well, not really, but it makes a good story. We share a common passion for the history of pharmacy so it made sense that we would get better acquainted as time went by, marrying in 2006.
Why the Owner Chose Ouray, CO, USA:
Ouray is called the Little Switzerland of America because of its unique dramatic alpine beauty. Surrounded by mountains it is the gem of the Rockies. We have never been to a more beautiful place. Curt was already living in Ouray when he met Nancy. There are outdoor activities here and nearby for every season. Skiing is close in Telluride and Silverton as well as Purgatory near Durango. Skiing is one of Nancy's passions. Ouray has inspired us to build this building and live out our dream. On the first floor is our commercial business that we call the Ouray Alchemist. Designed after an 1890's pharmacy with hickory hardwood floors and a tin ceiling, we feature antiques, jewelry, art, minerals, collectible currency and candy. The historic pharmacy museum behind the 1888 fully restored wall fixture is receiving rave reviews. With time there will be other fun things to come, like an old-fashioned soda fountain. Curt gives guided tours at 10 am and 1 pm on most days.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This clean comfortable and cozy suite in the heart of town is furnished with modern amenities intermingled with beautiful antiques and art. Make yourself at home. There is not a better view of the mountains anywhere else. Despite being right in the thick of things the large curved windows with the adjustable up or down shades, the large deck and separate balcony give optimum privacy. Snuggle up and sleep with a view of the moon coming up over the Amphitheatre.
