About Nancy Haggar
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.
Nancy Haggar purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Nancy Haggar chose Ouray
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.
What makes this Condo unique
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.

Great views and location!
We loved this rental, however the mattress in the bedroom could be upgraded.
Very nice place
The place is very nice. It was private, and had great views from all the rooms. I felt like I was staying at home. If we come back to Ouray, I would only want to stay here!
Excellent location and property!
The property was wonderful and location was so convenient to everything in Ouray.. Highly recommend..
Thank you. We appreciate your short but sweet review.
LOVE THIS PLACE
We fell in love with this penthouse suite downtown Ouray! The views are incredible. It is very clean and has everything you would need for your stay. We will definitely stay here next time we are in Ouray.
Thank you for writing your review! We appreciate the positive feedback. It is an inspiration for us to always keep it in tip top shape. We want everyone who stays here to feel that it is the best.
The views from the penthouse are beautiful. The penthouse has a large comfortable bedroom, bath with separate sinks, laundry room, and a well stocked (pots, pans, glasses. . .) kitchen that is open to the living area. Our hosts, Curt and Nancy, were friendly and well informed as to local happenings. My wife and I took a tour of the Alchemist Museum-it was one of the high points of our vacation. Curt has assembled an excellent collection and is an expert in the field. It snowed during our stay, it was very nice to have a garage to keep our vehicle in. The property is centrally located on main street so everything is within easy walking distance. We are making the Ouray Penthouse our residence of choice when we visit Ouray-you should too,
We are so glad that you felt comfortable and welcome at the penthouse! Just about all our guests travel quite a distance to get to Ouray. It is a magical scenic place that is well worth it to come visit. Many people park their car in the locked garage and explore Ouray on foot. It is a nice break from the driving that we all do and the best way to take it all in - the beautiful mountain views and the quaint small town atmosphere. Many hiking trails start within a few blocks of the penthouse. Also the vast majority of restaurants, shops, grocery store, bank, post office and attractions are a "hop, skip and a jump" away. We welcome folks to come experience the best place to stay in town. Ray and Faye - we do hope that you will return soon!
