Ouray Lodging

The historic City of Ouray the most populous city of Ouray County, Colorado, United States. It was originally established by miners chasing silver and gold in the surrounding mountains, the town at one time boasted more horses and mules than people. Prospectors arrived in the area in 1875. Accommodations, vacation rentals and condo rentals are plentiful and very charming.

The entire of Main St. is registered as a National Historic District with most of the buildings dating back to the late nineteenth century. The Beaumont Hotel and the Ouray City Hall and Walsh Library are listed on the National Register of Historic Places individually, while the Ouray County Courthouse, St. Elmo Hotel, St. Joseph's Miners' Hospital (currently housing the Ouray County Historical Society and Museum), Western Hotel, and Wright's Opera House are included in the historic district. Visitors are spoilt with all the surrounding history and most accommodation, vacation rental and condo rental options reflect this.

Ouray claims itself as the "Switzerland of America" because of its setting at the narrow head of a valley, enclosed on three and a half sides by steep mountains. Thus much of the town is focused on winter tourism from ice climbing, mountain biking, hiking and off-roading into the San Juan Mountains. Lodging and accommodations range from smaller condo rentals to more spacious vacation rentals to suit all budgets.

Ouray has also become a popular destination for motorcyclists, as it marks the beginning of the Million Dollar Highway. The Million Dollar Highway is frequently regarded as one of the most beautiful roads in Colorado, but is also considered one of the most dangerous due to its sharp turns, steep ledges, and lack of guard rails.

Remarkably, two-thirds of Ouray's original Victorian structures, both private and commercial, are still occupied, and have been lovingly restored in order to preserve their turn-of-the-century charm. Some beautifully converted to offer visitors a truly charming place to stay.

Visitors enjoy the dramatic and breathtaking beauty of Ouray. Taking a step back in time and experiencing the legends and unique landscape, there is much to do in Ouray. Relax in therapeutic mineral Hot Springs Pool and see the awe-inspiring Box Canon Falls, clear mountain streams and alpine wildflowers.

For outdoor adventure enthusiasts the Ouray Ice Park is a must. It is a man-made ice climbing venue operated in a spectacular natural gorge just outside the town of Ouray, CO. It is home to more than 200 named ice and mixed climbs, most within a 15-minute walk of the Park entrance.

I just want to share what an AWESOME place this is and a perfect location for summer and or winter activities. We had so much fun there and felt like we were at home away from home as it is decorated just that way to give you the comfort feeling when staying there. EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS THERE!!!!!! The owner was so nice to work with very accommodating and kind and helpful. We had such a GREAT TIME and are looking forward to returning next year. We have been going to Pagosa Springs for many years now and have stayed in cabins, hotels, and a few condos, but now that we have been to this place I'M looking no more, just to repeat book with her on and annual basis. Thank you for sharing your home,"
