Ouray Colorado – Escape into Beauty

Ouray Colorado – Escape into Beauty

Fulfill your Colorado mountain town dreams in Ouray, Colorado. Tucked into the San Juan Mountains, Ouray, Colorado really is a hidden jewel. Those who know its secrets, ice climbers, avid hot springs soakers and peace seekers, keep tight lipped and quietly enjoy their insider knowledge of one of the Rocky Mountains’ most unique and charming places. The history of Ouray is less glamorous than its modern day narrative as a place where active people come to play. Today’s visitor loves to sweat, but they do it on ice climbing routes or in a hot springs pool, not in the bowels of a silver mine. You don’t have to have much of an imagination to see Ouray the way it was in the very beginning. Along Main Street, the town still has the look of a 1800’s mining community, although today there are sidewalk and paved streets. Incorporated in 1886, a year later a Telluride newspaper reported that Ouray had 4 churches and 14 saloons. By 1890, the town was booming and...

Colorado Tent and Yurt Stays – Glamping!

Colorado Tent and Yurt Stays – Glamping!

In order to land on this list, we had to disregard all the fabulous, and tempting, cabins and permanent-walled structures. It’s time to keep on with tradition of Western exploration and narrate the trend of Tents and Yurts. Originally intended to house nomadic peoples, its usage is widespread across the continents, but its true glory, is only known to a few. These portable structures, usually with a dome or pointed-like top, will not only fascinate, but may leave you longing to put one up on your own property. They can be massive in size, large enough to hold a dinner party of 20, or they can be intimately sized to just house one bed with a fresh-laid down comforter and newly stoked fire.   Dunton River Camp – Pure Luxury Why not tempt you with the best? The most exotic and luxurious on our list of Tents and Yurts is Dunton River Camp, a new, separate addition to the famous Dunton Hot Springs. The Camp is located 4 miles...

New Sheridan Hotel, Telluride Historic Comfort

New Sheridan Hotel, Telluride Historic Comfort

There is a statement  in the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel that rings as true today as when it was stated in the 1880’s: “Once a visitor stepped into the richly paneled lobby of the New Sheridan Hotel Telluride, ate in the luxurious American Room, had a drink at the bar, and finally found his way to one of the hotel’s superb room, he knew all the rumors he had heard about the luxurious Sheridan were true…”. The New Sheridan Hotel has been welcome guests since 1891 and has a history as rich as the town of Telluride itself. The hotel has also seen the best and worst of times too with a timeline that talks of fires, floods, mud and prohibition. From a grand hotel to a miners hostel and back again today you will find 26 rooms that have been styled to meet today’s modern needs but will bring you back to Victorian times with the rich colors, unique fixtures and furnishings of that time. In 2008 the owner...
