Ouray has been a special destination of world travelers for more than 100 years. This small intimate community is nestled in some of the most rugged and towering peaks of the Rockies. Set at the narrow head of a valley at 7,792 feet and surrounded on three sides with 13,000 foot snowcapped peaks – Ouray is home to hundreds of miles of historic Jeep roads, sulfur-free hot springs with stunning views and the world-famous Ouray Ice Park.
Remarkably, two-thirds of Ouray’s original Victorian structures, are still occupied, and have been lovingly restored in order to preserve their turn-of-the-century charm.
Our Ouray vacation rentals and Ridgway vacation rentals are comprised of a variety of private accommodations including cabins, historic homes, luxury homes, condos, and townhomes.

Our famous sulfur-free hot springs are the steam part of our winter equation. Nothing beats a warming hot springs soak after a day of icy adventures. The snowflakes falling and melting on your nose? Just a bonus!
