Ouray area vacation cabin rental

Hey guys, my wife and I have been making an annual trip to Ouray for quite a while now. We started out tent camping and have worked our way to staying in a camper. This year, however, we are going to be between campers. I thought it would be nice to treat my wife to a cabin stay for this year. Not only because neither of us are looking forward to going back to a tent, but also (and mostly) because she and I have not been able to find time for a romantic getaway like this since we got married. So here is my question:

I have been searching all over and have found the typical listings that you find on the VRBO sites. There have been lots of different links, but all seem to eventually circle back around to that same general site. Where would yall natives suggest I look? We are South Texas flatlanders and I'm looking for the stereotypical Colorado experience, you know, like you see in the movies anytime they try to portray someone as living in the Colorado mountains.
"IE: A cabin in the woods, lots of trees. Not on a city street or right next to a bunch of other houses. A porch or deck with a nice view of the mountains. And most importantly to her, a nice cozy bathroom (no outhouses)."
The VRBO sites have a couple that seem to fit this, but only a couple and I can't help but believe that there has to be more options out there. We would like somewhere in the Silverton/Ouray/Telluride/Ridgeway type area. We trailer our crawler to Colorado, but the trails and trailheads need to be drivable distance. Does anyone know a cabin that fits this description or a better site to be shopping for them?

We were excited about the JF trip that yall are organizing, but the dates that were set are too much of a conflict with work, so now we're on plan B and doing something on our own.

Thanks for any help yall can provide.

Travis

We stay at the Twin Peaks. It is quiet as it is off the main drag. On-site hot pools, so no need to go down to the public hot spring. A great breakfast (custom made omelets, fresh made biscuits, fruit, yogurt, etc.) The beds and rooms were really comfortable. You can sit outside the room and look at the mountains on the balcony.

Not sure if this is your cup of tea, but it works for us.

We're really hoping to find something outside town, something a little more secluded, but if we can't find that then the Twin Peaks could be a good option. I'm curious about the parking situation also though. Since we tow in, not having a place where we can park a tow rig and trailer might be an issue.

No tow/trailer parking in the Twin Peaks parking lot, but I saw 2-3 tow/trailer rigs parked near by on the street. The street in front of the Twin Peaks is wide enough to accommodate those rigs.

The biggest downside is that there are no 4 wheel drive repair or auto parts shops in town. I had to drive to Montrose (40 miles to the Autozone) to get a battery/alternator issue resolved. I did hear of a forum member that was planning to start a 4 wheel drive repair shop in Ridgeway, but I don't know the status of that.

The gas in Ouray is expensive, so fill up on your way in.
