About Tamara or Bruce Gulde
Bruce and Tamara Gulde have lived in Ouray, Colorado for 14 years. They own retail shops and a wholesale business on Main Street (talk to them about discounts you may receive at their store). They are transplants from Long Beach, California with Colorado roots (their moms) and discovered Ouray over 17 years ago while driving north on Highway 550 to Snowmass to a running event after a brief backpack trip at Crater Lake out of Lake Andrew. After deciding to move to this tiny mining town, they purchased their home (built in 1888) in Ouray on the internet and then discovered that Tamara's great grandmother was eternally resting in the Ouray Cemetery, her daughter (Tamara's great aunt) had worked in the historic Beaumont Hotel.
Tamara or Bruce Gulde purchased this Cabin in 2014
What makes this Cabin unique
ASPEN HOUSE, fully furnished, has an energy about it that is peaceful and relaxing. It was originally a log cabin built by Edward W. McIntyre, owner of the Trout and Fisherman Lodes, in 1878. George and Lenora Wright purchased the cabin in 1879 (George struck it rich on the Wheel of Fortune Lode in the Mt. Sneffels area in 1877) and covered it with white siding a year or so later. The bay windows were added sometime after 1901. George Wright eventually managed and owned the historic Wright Opera House on Main Street. Sitting in the Adirondack chairs or a rocking chair on the front porch enjoying the morning sun or afternoon shade is fun and engaging as hikers and walkers pass by enjoying the Ouray view and Victorian homes that line the narrow road. Cascade Falls, across town, is visible from most rooms in the house and the porch. It is one of two waterfalls accessible in town and flows clear and white in the spring, periodically chocolate brown during the Monsoon rains in July and August, a trickle in the fall and then freezes in the winter. The view the 4th of July fireworks from the ASPEN HOUSE porch is second to none. Watch the amphitheater turn crimson, a moonrise from the porch, and vehicles climb the Million Dollar Highway at night.

Great location and place
I enjoyed being in this place... to be in it was like going back in time to the late 1800s. The home is clean, newly remodeled inside and looks awesome on the outside. It is as advertised, close to town, churches, and entertainment. The location on Oak Street is without doubt the best scenic location in Ouray (pronounced Uray). Ouray is one of the nations most beautiful cities. It rises above sea level about 8000 feet. Cool summer time and cooler winter times. I enjoy ever breathe of CO air that I take. Spend time here JUST ONE TIME and you will return, guaranteed!!!!!
VIEWS! VIEWS! VIEWS! The best Ouray has to offer! 4th of July fireworks front seat! ASPEN HOUSE, an historic cabin, is also known as the George Wright House, built in 1878, and is steps away from historic sites and great adventures. 360 degree views from the property are spectacular year round. The cabin's quaint structure is located on Historic Oak Street, which runs along the Uncompahgre River and is part of the Perimeter Trail. Its quaint white structure sits appx. 1/4 mile from the Box Canon Falls, Ouray Ice Park, and Main Street shops and restaurants. ASPEN HOUSE is just 1/2 mile from the historic non-sulfer Ouray Hot Springs Pool where soaking pools, 25 meter lap lanes, gym facilities, massage spa, and snack bar can be enjoyed…and the pool is next to Fellin Park...baseball diamond, basketball court, gazebo, playground, and paved running track. Enjoy an unobstructed ASPEN HOUSE view from all three bedrooms, living room and front porch of nearly all of downtown Ouray, Cascade Falls, Chief Ouray Mine, and the towering mountains completely surrounding this historic mining town including the Amphitheater, Mt. Abram, and Mt. Hayden. Walk out the door and find your way to many hiking trails, mining ruins and even ghost towns. Ouray is known as the Jeep Capital of the World, Gem of the Rockies, and begins the beautiful Million Dollar Highway (Highway 550) through the San Juan Mountains to Silverton. So many things to do! In the high season, rent a Jeep to enjoy high altitude wild flowers and passes into Telluride (and other cities) like Imogene Pass (Elevation 13,114’) and see the colors of the beautiful San Juan Mountains from high above; hire a guide to take you up to the top of Mt. Sneffel's (Elevation 14,158) the only fourteen-er mountain in Ouray County and just a few miles away; have a cold beer at one of the two breweries in town; find John Wayne’s hat in one of our local restaurants (True Grit was filmed at our historic Ouray County Courthouse…Ouray’s county seat); take a museum tour at one of the best museums in the country or get a massage and soak at the Ouray Hot Springs Pool. In the winter, walk to the Ouray Ice Park, enjoy back country skiing, snowmobile tours, snowshoeing, ice skating, soaking in the Ouray Hot Springs Pool, spa days, or just cozy quiet and winter views.
