About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom With Beautiful Mountain Views

This beautiful newly remodeled spacious 3 bedroom home has all of the comforts of a home-away-from-home here in the mountains. Located on the lush tree lined river road, the home is right across the street from the Uncompahgre River Walk Loop which leads to the Ouray Town Park, the historic Ouray Hot Springs and Fitness Center, & Ouray’s Main Street District. Decorated throughout with artwork, the home has 3 bedrooms & 2.5 baths with a spacious main living area located on the ground floor with a full size sleeper sofa. The living area also has a new 52" flat screen TV with surround sound system for curling up on Ouray’s cold winter nights with a movie in the cozy warmth provided by a wood pellet stove. The fully stocked modern kitchen has new appliances & a breakfast bar for your morning coffee or tea before you set off on your outdoor adventure. The master bedroom features a king bed with plush bedding, vaulted ceilings, a private bathroom & a private deck with views of the Ouray river valley & the surrounding mountains. The second bedroom has a queen bed & a second bath right across the hall with tub/shower combination. The third bedroom also has a queen bed & a workspace for catching up on emails & social media. For summer guests there is a wonderful fenced yard with a beautiful lawn for enjoying some of Ouray’s wonderful summer days and evenings. For our winter guests the home is located across the street from the river trail which serves as the Nordic skiing trail here in town & is 1/2 mile from the Ouray Hot Springs Pool & 2 miles from the Ouray Ice Park. Surrounded by mountain views & natural river valley beauty, the Silvershield Chalet is a perfect place for a summer or winter getaway.

Patricia Oines and Michael Castagliola are life-long New Yorkers who purchased this home to be able to spend quality vacations with their Ouray granddaughters. They set up the home with comfort in mind. Patricia's daughter, Nicole Skoloda, is now the property manager. She has lived in Ouray with her family for 16 years.

NICOLE SKOLODA purchased this house in 2010

Why NICOLE SKOLODA chose Ouray

The river, the mountain views, the quiet surroundings are some of the factors that led them to purchase this home.

What makes this house unique

Sitting on the upper deck with a cup of coffee in the morning light is a great way to start the day. Eating dinner on the patio and playing bocce ball in the evening is just fun. Listening to the river while going to bed is purely relaxing.

Clean, convenient and well equipped house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property with our family of six---two parents and four young adult children. The house is clean, comfortable and convenient. We like to cook and found the kitchen well stocked with all the pots, pans, dishes and utensils needed. Easy access to the main street in Ouray and quick drive to many great trails in the San Juans. A great home away from home.

Nice, clean, "homey" property. We had two families with young children and never once felt cramped. Loved having the fenced yard for the kids too.

Great rental: Quiet, Clean and Well Stocked

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this rental. It was perfect for a family with small children. Nicole was very responsive to our needs and questions. The yard was ideal for our young kids to play outside while my husband and I could relax and enjoy the scenery. We walked the river daily which was only about a mile from town. We loved laying on the balcony porch, watching the stars and listening to the river. We fell in love with the town of Ouray. Our children (2 and 4) want to move there :-)

Lovely and peaceful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved and enjoyed our stay at this home in Ouray. The home itself was beautiful, clean, comfortable, and had an amazing view of the surrounding scenery. There is a lovely area for grilling and outdoor dining and a cozy balcony for reading or enjoying a beverage. The manager is friendly, accommodating and attentive and was able to help us with any questions. The property is within walking distance of town, a nice hike or stroll along the Uncompahgre River. The community itself is quiet in the evenings and the neighbors were friendly. We would highly recommend this property!
