About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Mountain View is a 3-bedroom, 3-bath country home located in a peaceful valley with beautiful mountain views. Its large deck is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee, a good book or nap in the afternoon, an outdoors evening meal, or the camaraderie of huddling around a cozy fire after dark. Gas fireplaces in the living room and family room provide cozy warmth inside, where you can lose yourself in one of the many fiction or non-fiction books from the home's large library. Mountain View provides the perfect getaway where you can live peacefully, side-by-side with the deer and other wildlife that inhabit the valley.

This spacious, 3-level country-style mountain home sleeps up to 8 people. The main level includes a bedroom with queen bed, a bedroom with two twin beds, and a full bath, in addition to a beautiful living room with fireplace, dining room, and modern kitchen. The upper level of the home boasts a large master bedroom with queen bed and spacious bath. There is also a nice workspace here for those needing to work on their vacation. The cozy, private lower level of the home has a nice living area with a fireplace, queen sleeper sofa, and full bath.

The home has satellite TV and Wireless Internet for viewing your favorite shows and movies, and keeping up with work while you're gone.

Mountain View is conveniently located between Ouray and Ridgway, within 10 minutes of a leisurely soak in the hot springs pools in either direction. Ouray is known as the 'Switzerland of America,' nestled in a small valley with 360-degree views of 12,000-14,000 mountains. This small mountain town is full of shops, galleries, restaurants, and museums, not to mention its hot springs pools. It is also often called the 'Jeeping Capital of the World' because of its numerous easy to rugged trails through the high country, popular to those on both four-wheel and two-wheel type vehicles. Ridgway, 10 minutes north of Ouray, has its own charm, thanks in part to the movie True Grit being filmed there, where some of the movie set has become home to small businesses in operation today.

Within 30 minutes of Mountain View you can be golfing at Divide Ranch Golf Club on Log Hill Mesa, one of the most beautiful courses in the area with panoramic mountain views. In less than an hour you can be skiing, golfing or shopping in Telluride!

Two local markets are within a 10-minute drive, one in Ouray and another in Ridgway, If you need anything at the larger stores like City Market, Safeway, Home Depot, Target and Walmart, a quick 30-minute trip over flat roads to Montrose will provide what you need, as well as many other local shops, including a fish market!

Mountain View provides the perfect getaway place to help create those memories that will keep you coming back again and again to Ouray!

If you are traveling with small children, we have a local resource for baby cribs, high chairs, strollers, toys, and more.

The house is very well located and so comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for a long weekend of jeeping and enjoyed coming home for a relaxing evening at this house. It was fully stocked with every kitchen utensil you need for a gourmet meal. Beds pretty firm, and you'll love watching the wildlife from the deck!

secluded mountain paradise

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this house. It is very close to Ouray. We had a lot of excellent mountain adventures. Our favorite was jeeping in the mountains.

The house has everything. A well equipped kitchen, interesting interior decor, stunning mountain views, and lots of room for 8.

Excellent views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year, July 2014. Beautiful house, large enough for four adults and our four kids. Great views, nice large driveway, fairly secluded, close to Ouray; only about 12 mins away. The view from the deck is the best after a day of wheeling. Throw some steaks on the grill (provided), crack open some beers, sit back and take in the amazing views of the mountainside and pretend you actually live here.
