Cow Creek Suite's immaculate and luxuriously comfortable accommodations, quiet edge-of-town location and affordable rates have combined to make it one of Ridgway's most popular short term vacation rentals.  And when readers of the Ouray County Plaindealer were asked in 2013 to name the best lodging in the County they voted Cow Creek Suites second only to the City of Ouray's iconic Beaumont Hotel - recognizing Cow Creek Suites as one of the top lodging options in all of Ouray County as well.

These short term rentals are designed to help you get the most out of your vacation dollars while enjoying a home base that fits the classic western grandeur of the surrounding landscape.  Both are smoke and pet free and feature allergen barrier bedding and an AccuClean (TM) Whole Home Air Filtration System.  Check them out and let us know which suits you best.

When you choose to stay at either Cow Creek Suite or Cow Creek Suite For Two you can rest easy knowing there are no fuel-burning furnaces on the premises. Instead, fresh outside air is safely heated and cooled by the highly energy efficient all-climate air source heat pump located outside the building. While the building may look as if it were built in the 1880s, this efficient heating and cooling system and the dozens of state of the art energy efficiency measures used in the building's design and construction make it among the most energy efficient buildings anywhere. As an added benefit, these energy efficiency measures ensure the suite is well insulated not just from the elements but from outside noise as well. You will notice the difference in your comfort level. Quiet comfort!

Speaking of quiet, our convenient, edge-of-town location is as quiet as it gets, yet access to Ridgway's network of bike paths is directly across the street for a quick, easy walk or ride to the action at the center of town and all of Ridgway's many fine restaurants, shops, and major attractions such as the Ridgway Visitor Center, Railroad Museum, Town Park, Ranch History Museum, County Fairgrounds, and the must do Uncompahgre River Trail.  This trail traverses the river corridor to Dennis Weaver Memorial Park, Ridgway State Park, and the awesome hiking trails and single track mountain bike paths surrounding Ridgway.

From the 400 thread-count 100% cotton sheets, plush carpeting, premium HDTV service with "The Hopper" from Dish Network, to the superfast 12Mbit wireless internet service, custom woodwork, high-quality comfortable furnishings and historical area photographs and art, these spacious suites are outfitted to be your favorite home away from home.
