Birthday getaway!

5 on January 15, 2016

Had the most enjoyable time at Black Bear Manor. Love this place and our hosts were so gracious!


Charming Colorado Bed & Breakfast

5 on September 26, 2015

We had such an enjoyable vacation at Black Bear Manor in Ouray, Colorado with our gracious hosts Phil and Lucie. It was not our first stay at Black Bear Manor and we were delighted to have had the opportunity to return. It was the most quiet and relaxing lodging that we encountered on our travels this past summer. Phil and Lucie work very hard to make Black Bear Manor a special Bed and Breakfast. They are exemplary hosts. With all their love and care, it felt like staying with family. We appreciated Phil’s thoughtful attention to our needs, and we felt blessed to have Lucie greet us every morning with her cheerfulness and beautiful, sumptuous breakfasts. At the end of our busy days exploring the Rockies, we enjoyed the relaxing late afternoon wine and fellowship with Phil, Lucie, and the other guests. We love the warm hospitality at Black Bear Manor and can’t wait to go back again. It is truly a five-star experience.


Such a Wonderful Experience!

Just wonderful. Staff was so friendly and enjoyable. Breakfast was delicious and lots of it. Weather was perfect so we ate breakfast outside. We met some very nice people their and went out to dinner with them later. Located just a short walk from all the action. We will definitely stay at Black Bear Manor again!


Fantastic B&B!!

4.6 on August 16, 2015

This B&B is amazing - first off, you can't find a more beautiful town in Colorado than Ouray. The people are so kind, there is so much to do, and the mountains are breathtaking. Secondly, Phil and Lucy elevate this B&B to another level. They welcome you like family and the breakfast feast you get fed every morning will spoil you so bad that when you return home you will crave her made from scratch delights! The B&B is perfectly located just off the main road and you can walk to anything in town. You are also within walking distance to Box Canyon Falls and the town's perimeter trail. We will definitely go back to Black Bear Manor!


Amazing Experience!

5 on May 13, 2015

This was our first experience at a B&B. It will certainly will not be our last! The proprietors Phil & Lucie were so welcoming and friendly. Phil gave us a quick tour of the lodge and let us know about the events taking place in town. The beer and wine reception each day was fabulous! There were several other couples staying there and it wasn't long before the lounge was lively with conversation. The upstairs "observatory" was great with the huge windows on 3 sides. We were hit by a late season snowstorm and watching the weather from there made me feel like I was in a giant snow globe. The whole place is located just off of Main street, so exploring around town was super easy. The hot tub was hot and perfect for soaking away the aches and pains of the day. The real show-stopper, however, was breakfast. Lucie, you should write a cook book because I think everyone who eats your food would buy one! Sausages, bacon, biscuits and gravy, breakfast casseroles, muffins, and so much more, all set out in an all-you-can-eat buffet. Lunch was totally unnecessary both days as we didn't even start to get hungry again until dinner time. Honestly, if I could give them more than 5 stars, I would.


Mother's Day Treat

5 on May 12, 2015

What an excellent B&B!!! We went over Mothers Day Weekend for a little mini vacation and we're very pleasantly surprised at what we found. Check in is not until 3:00 but we arrived at about 2:15 and Lucy, the hostess, greeted us warmly and assured us our being early was no problem. She showed us around the downstairs and then lead us upstairs to our room. Our room was wonderfully appointed and cozy. We unloaded our car and carried our possessions upstairs and settled in. The whole place has a very homey feel and was very comfortable. Happy hour, consisting of wine, beer and a snack, was from 4:30 - 5:30. We went back downstairs and joined some of the other guests for a great hour of conversation and getting to know each other. Happy hour both evenings we were there was great fun. Breakfast both mornings were to die for, fresh coffee, oj, homemade pastries, breakfasts casseroles and fresh fruit, YUM. Our hosts, Phil and Lucie, were very warm and gracious and made sure all of us were well taken care of. I particularly enjoyed the upstairs observatory where we could sit and enjoy the view. We can't wait to get back there again.


awsome

5 on February 16, 2015

Stay and service were awsome. Phil and Lucy were great guests. The wine and beer hour really set the tone for the stay by allowing the guests to mingle and get acquainted. We met a great couple at that time who we shared dinner with on a couple of occasions. We do plan on going back.


Beautiful country, great people!

5 on September 29, 2014

My wife and I stayed at Black Bear Manor in Ouray during the height of the fall colors. Not only was the scenery breathtaking, but Phil and Lucy, our hosts, were more than just accommodating, they treated us like family. There is nothing this couple won't do to make your stay more enjoyable. The lodging is first-rate, and made outstanding by the hosts' knowledge of the area and their willingness to get to know you, making it simple for them to offer great recommendations for their guests' activities and sightseeing that will suit their desires. They also create a great social atmosphere that makes it easy for guests to get to know one another and relax together like old friends, after a day of hiking, exploring and sightseeing. Bring an appetite! Lucy's breakfasts feature a variety of great foods, and no one will walk away from the table hungry -- for hours! She is a great cook. We highly recommend Black Bear Manor. We will most certainly be back as soon as possible.


Wonderful breakfast!

4.6 on July 19, 2014

Beautiful, quiet B&B right in town. Great hosts and service! The breakfast was wonderful. Lucy even made me my own separate dish due to allergies. There was a limited number of places to plug in our stuff for recharging so plan accordingly.


It couldn't have been better and I'm not easy to please

5 on February 14, 2014

We stayed at the Black Bear Manor in January during the ice festival and had a great time. The manor is absolutely wonderful. Everything was perfect. The entire manor is decorated with great taste and luxury. You feel at home and feel spoiled at the same time. Our room was quiet and clean. The bed gave us a great nights sleep. The breakfast tasted delicious and we were offered a wide variety of taste sensations. The caretakers, Phil and Lucy were gracious and kind. It was a perfect weekend and we are going to return.
