About The Owner

We are a family of five who love the Colorado mountains! We grew up on the eastern slope of Colorado, but love all the western slope has to offer. Every summer we load the jeep as often as we can & hit the beautiful trails of the San Juan mountains; hiking & camping along the way. Our family goal is to summit all 54 Colorado fourteeners together. We completed our 1st last summer when our youngest turned 5.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Southwest

We chose this location to offer family friendly, superior accommodations because it is our favorite place on earth! It is within short driving distance of Ouray, Telluride, Montrose, & Silverton. All quaint mountain towns offering much for travelers to enjoy. Not to mention anywhere you drive you see spectacular scenery. There are numerous hiking & jeeping trails easily accessible.

What makes this house unique

Cutler creek (seasonal) runs thru the property which is beautifully landscaped. Plenty of room for kids to run & play safely outside. This beautiful home and the unique area will entice you to come back for more.

Jeep vacation with friends

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time staying here. It's a great location for all of our destinations and quiet area. There were a few minor issues (lights burned out and switches not working) but otherwise pleased with everything. Plenty of room to relax inside or outside. We had six couples and a few single people stay but it was all worth it and the rooms worked out perfectly for our needs. The kitchen and pantry are easy to use. Laundry room is very spacious and even has access to the back deck!

Wonderful home with great atmosphere.

  • 5 of 5

This home was larger than expected. Very comfortable with a great atmosphere. Great off the road and even with the cottage behind the home it was very quite. Lots of wildlife was seen off the wonderful patio that extended the length of the home. The kids enjoyed playing outside without constant adult supervision. The pack and play was great to have In the home for our youngest family member. The only suggestion I would make would be a baby gate for the stairs. We really enjoyed the comfort of your home. I enjoyed reading in the journals of previous visitors and would like to here the Yolanda stories that was mentioned. We will sure keep this rental information if we plan another family vacation to Ouray in the future.

So much space!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Cutler Creek. A summer family reunion with members from Vermont, New York, Washington DC, and Colorado. Nineteen people, and we used both houses. We loved them! Close to everything, yet we had our own privacy.

We moved the kitchen table into the huge dining room so we could all eat together. We also brought a few extra tables and chairs so we could eat out on the deck on hot evenings. The great room is the “greatest” that we have ever seen -- gigantic! We brought our own puzzles, but enjoyed the games in the house, too. The toddlers could waddle around the house, easy for us to watch as everything is so open.

Wonderful Kitchen -- lots of space and lots of dishes. We liked the five burner stove top, the wine refrigerator, and the amazing ice machine!

Plenty of bedrooms and nice, clean bathrooms supplied with toilet paper and little shampoos. We appreciated the nice touch of local chocolates and jerky to greet us.

Great views: coffee on the deck in the morning, tea by the creek in the evening. We were glad that we were allowed to bring our dog to the lower house. The gates on the decks kept the young kids and the dog enclosed.

We hiked around Ouray; went to both Hot Springs; spent some time in Ridgway at the park, library, and restaurants; rented bikes and rode to the state park; spent a day at the “beach” of the reservoir (great for little kids); and devoted a day to Telluride with the free gondola. There is still so much that we didn’t do, that we have to come back!

As others have said, the only things that could be added to make it perfect would be whole house air conditioning and a hot tub.

The lower house has two large TV’s with DVD players, plenty of chairs, a cool (both meanings of the word) family room, beach towels to take to hot springs, two refrigerators, two ovens, and a laundry room with an amazingly fast dryer! Fans in every bedroom, beautiful skylights, and an exceptionally good outdoor grill. Enough seating in the living room for us all to hang out together.

Our kids had plenty to do with the yard to explore, the decks on which to play pretend, kids’ board games, pool table, and the wonderful family room. The creek was a little too high for wading in early June, but would have been fun in a week or two.

We needed a large house in a beautiful, scenic spot in Colorado that wasn’t above 8000 feet in elevation (for health reasons), and this was perfect. We would rent here again!

3rd time and will definitely go back

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd time that we've rented the place and we love it. Jen is so nice and responsive to emails. We have a large, unrelated group that goes to Ouray to ice climb every year so having all of the extra space is really nice. The kitchen is amazing-the only downside is that they have all metal pots/pans as opposed to non-stick. Not a huge thing, so you can see that this is a great place. We certainly will try to get this year after year. I'd love to stay there sometime in the spring/summer months when things aren't covered in snow and we can appreciate the great wrap around deck and fire pit.
