Ouray, Colorado-45 minutes from Telluride. Nestled in the San Juan Mountains and mapwithin easy walking distance to anywhere in town, the Cartier house is your home away from home.

An 1882 Victorian home lovingly restored by the owners, this Victorian getaway offers the best of old and new; exquisite wood work, antique furnishings, large claw footed tub, fully equipped contemporary kitchen, laundry facilities and breathtaking views from a fenced in yard. The house sleeps four to seven people and is the perfect retreat for couples and families.

Take in the majestic beauty of the Rocky Mountains by foot, by 4WD jeep or just from the front porch. Stroll along the Uncompahgre River in the rural Colorado countryside and then relax at the end of the day in the natural hot springs that abound in the area, all amidst the most beautiful area in North America.

Every season in Ouray has something to offer, however the fall seems to be a well kept secret. The Aspens and Oak brush fall color change set amidst the Colorado Rockies with dotted timber building remnants of the mining days of this area, make this time of year a spectacular visual feast for travelers that are looking for undiscovered travel delights.

Ouray is just 45 minutes drive from Telluride, offering access to the same San Juan Mountains that the famous Telluride is nestled in. Our rates offer the best accommodation value in Ouray or Telluride.

Come and see for yourself- we would love to have you as guests in our holiday home.
