We thoroughly enjoyed our visit from the friendly host, fresh food, helpful advice, comfy bed and relaxing hot tub. The view from the house was amazing and peaceful, far from the noise and concrete of city life and yet close enough to Ouray and Telluride for short journeys.

If you are looking for a beautiful property that is close to Ouray & Telluride, sparkling clean, a host that knows when to be available and not (not sure how you do that with strangers in your home), terrific view, lots of areas to enjoy that view, wildlife, coffee, great peaches, a place to put your drinks then this place has it all and more! I also enjoyed spending some time with Lysa before we left. What a great host! Thank you!

Beautiful place! Easy to access Ouray & Telluride. Bathrooms not attached to rooms but wasn't a big deal. Would definitely stay there again

Beautiful neighborhood with majestic view if the San Juans. Solidly built and clean house includes nice personal touches. Though owner was nice to accept me and my dogs at a moment's notice, she seemed a little finicky, and I felt a bit as if I were stepping on eggshells. Otherwise, a beautiful and worthwhile place.

Response from Elizabeth (Lysa) And Don:
Frankly, Margaret, I was shocked to read your disparaging comments: you asked me to reduce my rate to accept your dogs because you were short on funds, which I did. Then upon arrival, you informed me that your dogs sleep on your bed. I explained that I couldn't have dogs sleeping on a guest bed because the cleaning afterwards is onerous and time-consuming (I had guests arriving the day you left). Every single piece of bedding would have to be laundered. One of the most important things to guests is cleanliness. No guest would be happy if they found hair on their bedding and might leave a poor review. I even gave you extra blankets for your dogs to sleep on. If you were so uncomfortable, then why did you ask to stay another two nights? I am greatly disappointed that after making the best of a less than ideal situation, you felt it necessary to leave such a review. In my five years of hosting, no one has ever complained that I made them uncomfortable.

This house is a true gem. Comfort and cleanliness come first for this couple and they do not disappoint! My boyfriend and I stayed here two nights and enjoyed every minute of it. Having breakfast with a view of the mountains was breathtaking-as is the hike (literally) if you hike up to blue lake! Lysa (and her friends) had excellent suggestions for activities and places to eat. Blue lake is HARD but rewarding and the Thai Palace had great food if you don't care for much spice! We will be staying here again when passing through!

My husband & I are semi-retired and split our time between two residences. We are very active: skiing, biking, hiking, walking. We love the arts & enjoy the opera and theater in Tampa as well as museums. We are very social people and love to share our homes with new friends. Lysa (Elizabeth) is an adventurous cook, always looking for the next best recipe. Don loves to advise guests on what to see and do. It would be our pleasure to host you in the manner that suits, whether it be personal attentiveness or just letting you kick back and find your own way.
