If you ever find yourself in need of a place to stay in Ouray, stay here. Helen's studio is the cozy, very clean, and all together very true to the listing - if not better. My boyfriend and I needed a place to stay for the weekend while we were going to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and the studio was the perfect resting place. The location is situated in the perfect spot. Restaurants, local shops, and waterfalls are within walking distance, as well as the Hot Springs Pool where we showered without an issue. There were no yoga classes in session because we stayed over the weekend, though I would imagine that it wouldn't be an inconvenience at all to work around the class schedule. I didn't speak to Helen in person, but all of her responses were prompt, cordial, and helpful. As a college student, the price was extremely affordable (and appreciated), and the listing was completely worth the value. If I am ever back in Ouray, this will be the first place I check for a vacancy!
We enjoyed staying at Helen's Yoga studio. It was conveniently situated in downtown Ouray. The bed was comfortable and our hostess provided coffee and a variety of teas.
My weekend getaway was perfect! Everything was just as described and I enjoyed staying there for a relaxing weekend. Every morning, I went to the hot springs and showering there was just fine with me. The location was perfect and right in the middle of downtown. I was right next to the Ouray Brewery, where I enjoyed dinner every evening and was able to walk right across the street to go to bed. I will definitely stay there again!
Helen was a great host, and communicated effectively before our arrival regarding logistics and even tips about mushroom hunting in the region! The space was clean, beautiful, and very conveniently located in Ouray. Only downside is we didn't have time to participate in a yoga class!
Helen's room was the perfect space I needed for my four days in Ouray. The schedule of the attached yoga studio is so infrequent, it felt like I had the whole place to myself! The laundry machines were also a huge convenience. Only two blocks away is the Wiesbaden Hot Springs where I went twice during my stay. If i'm ever back in Ouray, I will be sure to reach out to Helen for a place to stay.
