About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-10)

A cozy, log cabin nestled in the trees with the soothing sounds of the Uncompahgre River awaits you in Ouray, Colorado.

The home includes two bedrooms, one upstairs with a king and one on the main level with a double bed, two full bathrooms, and a loft with a queen bed and a queen-size futon. Additionally, there is a sleeper sofa in the living area.

Great views can be enjoyed from the front porch, where you can relax after a fun-filled day of adventure in the high country. The Riverview Cabin is within a mile of the Ouray Hot Springs Pool and Park, and downtown Ouray. If you like to walk, you can follow the Riverwalk Trail (just across the road) or walk along the back road.

Relax in the private yard area to enjoy the fresh mountain air. Best of all, though, is the invitation to sit on the large porch and watch the river flow by that is just across the road, and to leave the window open a bit and fall asleep to the sound of the river rushing by. You can enjoy a new Sony 40' LCD HDTV. There is also a WiFi provided. You won't want to miss the oft sited, in travel magazines, Ouray Hot Springs Pool, which is just a 1/4 mile walk away. Downtown Ouray's shops are just a short 1/2 mile walk away. The Riverview Cabin sits on 4 1/2 acres of mountainside, providing a degree of privacy and the opportunity to explore and view Ouray's beauty from a higher elevation.

The Riverview Cabin is a full log house, and has the reverse side of the logs as interior walls. It is truly a warm and inviting home, and we would love to have you as a guest.

If you are traveling with small children, we have a local resource for baby cribs, high chairs, strollers, toys, and more. You can arrive at your accommodations here in the Ouray/Telluride area and find the items set up and waiting for you! You can call or text Traveling Lite at 970-318-6543 or visit their website where you can reserve online!

ABOUT THE AREA: You will want to spend several days in beautiful Ouray County. Ouray, which is known as the 'Switzerland of America,' is nestled in a small valley with 360-degree views of 12,000-14,000 mountains. Ridgway, nicknamed the 'Gateway to the San Juans,' is just 10 miles from Ouray and is well-known as the place where the John Wayne movie 'True Grit' was filmed. Many of the movie set's buildings are still used today by local businesses. These two historic towns offer a variety of activities: restaurants, shops, museums, galleries, hot springs pools, jeep rentals, hiking, fishing and boating -- the list goes on and on! Day trips to Silverton, Telluride and Durango are fun as well.

Ouray is also often called 'The Jeeping Capital of the World' because of its many trails through the high country (rated easy to rugged), popular for 2-wheel and 4-wheel off road vehicles.

Golf is available at beautiful Divide Ranch Golf Club located on Log Hill Mesa just above Ridgway, offering panoramic mountain views. Telluride and Montrose also have golf courses.

Ouray and Ridgway both offer local markets, and you can find larger stores like City Market, Safeway, Target and Walmart in Montrose, a flat, easy drive 35 miles from Ouray, 25 miles from Ridgway.

No matter how long you decide to stay, you will find yourself wanting to come back again and again to Ouray County, one of the most beautiful places on earth!

When arrived (in September), the heat was turned off, there was no firewood for the stove, and the security lighting for the parking and entry areas did not work. The inside temperature in the mornings was about 50 degrees. We messed with the thermostat for a couple of mornings before we complained. At that time, we also complained about the non-functional security lighting, since the parking and entry areas are dangerously uneven and pitch dark at night. Finally, we complained about the lack of firewood for what could have been a backup heat source.

When we did complain, nothing was done. No compensation was offered for the lack of heat, the lack of firewood, or the unsafe after-dark conditions. The managers merely berated us for not telling them earlier. The fact is, they never responded, when we did complain.

Ouray is a charming town with friendly people, but I can't say the same for this overpriced property.

Owner's Response: We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that was experienced with the heat and lights at the cabin upon guest arrival. We only wish we had had the opportunity to make everything right for you, from the beginning of your stay. We are also very sorry that our maintenance company did not respond immediately. They thought you said they didn't have to come immediately because you were leaving the next day. But you called, and they should have responded. For your inconvenience, we would like to refund your first night’s stay at the cabin and it is being processed. With notification, we would have fixed the issues the next day so the remainder of your stay would have been much more pleasant, as it should have been. Unfortunately, firewood is not currently provided for every rental with a fireplace, but we will work with our individual owners to see if we can make that happen. However, we are always happy to bring over a bundle or two if needed. Ouray Vacation Rentals really does care about the comfort of our guests, and want everyone to have an enjoyable experience staying with us. We are so sorry that your stay was less than satisfactory, and we hope that we will have another opportunity to show you that we can do better.

Really nice experience

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. I wish the down stairs bedroom would have had the queen sz bed instead of a double. The queen bed isupstairs in the loft just outside the master bedroom. The house was clean and kitchen well equipped. My opinion the pictures made you think the house was higher up in mountains. We enjoyed the swing and table and chairs out in the side lawn. House is very close to restaurants and shops. The property managers were great,very accommodating when we arrived a couple hours before check in. Overall a very nice experience!

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Location is very convenient. Close to town and the Ouray Hot Springs. No garage so know that you will be parking your car/motorcyle on a dirt driveway. The open floor plan is very comfortable for a group. Kitchen could be better stocked with spices and the BBQ grate is very old and we didn't use the BBQ (charcoal) because of that. The house was very clean and the property management company was very easy to work with.

This was our third vacation at this home, and we will be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Julie, for taking the time to share your comments with us about your stay in the Riverview Cabin, and we're pleased that you enjoyed your time there. For the future, we just wanted you to know that our management company does not supply any spices in its rental properties, due to liability issues. Those that you do find there have been left by other guests. We always suggest that you either purchase what you need when you get to town, or bring along anything special that you will need for cooking. There is almost always salt and pepper, but rarely much else. We apologize for the condition of the grill. We will take a close look at it and see if the grate can be replaced. If not, we will purchase a new, mobile grill for next season (we close this home during the winter months). Thanks again, and we look forward to your next visit with us!

Nice cabin but.

  • 3 of 5

The location was awesome. The home was well equipped and comfortable. The reason I gave it three stars is because it was infested with mice.

Owner's Response: We have recently experienced an influx of mice, and are working diligently to rid the house of them. We have enlisted a program with Orkin where they will come every other week to keep the mice out of the house, and our maintenance crew is visiting the house daily as well, to dispose of any that have gotten inside. In mountain homes that back up to the forest like this one does, it is always a challenge to keep out critters, but we are doing our best! We're pleased that you enjoyed the house, aside from the outside visitors.
