Romantic Getaway

5 on January 19, 2017

Phil and Lucie were outstanding hosts. The breakfast each morning was unique, delicious, and well prepared. They were so accommodating on our last day when we had to get to the airport early. You just don't find that kind of service anymore. We stayed in winter and enjoyed our time in town and did some snow shoeing at their recommendation. We couldn't have had a better time and we'll be back soon.


Ouray gem

This was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast. It was a great experience.


Princes/Kings in the Princess Suite

5 on October 13, 2016

Needed lodging at last minute for 2 Big Burly guys and the only room with 2 beds happened to be only room available, luckily! 2 big beds that were great, great food, very friendly staff. Called the princess suite, it gave us slight pause, but it was great. We felt very "special". "Bring your own Tiara".

Our preferred place to stay in Ouray. The hosts, Phil and Lucie, are both friendly and hospitable. Excellent breakfast as well. The facility is welcoming and comfortable. Hosts had helpers Kris and Mike who were also friendly. I like the location, close enough to the main drag, but also away from the traffic, being near the end of the road. Will definitely stay here next time we are in Ouray.


Best in Ouray

I have been staying at Black Bear Manor for many years, and every time seems even better than the last. The staff are outstanding in every way. They are always helpful, and they know the town very well and can recommend everything from places to dine to jeep companies to tour with. Also, the breakfasts are some of the best I've eaten anywhere, and the amount of food provided is generous, to say the least. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ouray. The facilities are wonderful, with very comfortable rooms and beautiful public areas. They also have a special room on the third floor, called the Observatory, which has great views of the mountains all around. If you stay at Black Bear, don't miss this lovely room.


A wonderful place to atay

My wife and I really enjoyed our two day stay at the lodge. Kris was a delightful hostess and provided a beautiful and delicious buffet both mornings. Would highly recommend to all!


Breakfast and bed is the better order.

If you want really great breakfasts where there are unique entrees each morning coupled with great morning conversation then this is your place. Chris, the hostess, does an outstanding job in preparing a varied and exquisite breakfast spread. Well worth the price of admission. Also had a happy hour of wine and beer every evening when we shared our experiences of the day with fellow guests, a great idea. Rooms are nice and location is good as off the Main Street and traffic. We highly recommend the Black Bear!


Really nice place

3.8 on May 25, 2016

My husband and I spent a night at the Black Bear Manor for our upcoming anniversary. The room was spotless, though the vanity lights did not work. That wasn't really a problem in terms of practicality since I don't wear makeup, but staff should ensure that all lights are working before a room is rented. The host was very responsive to that concern, though we didn't mention it until checkout. We really appreciated the warm greeting and the nice red wine we were served upon arrival. The bed was comfortable and the hot tub was a pleasing and convenient alternative to the hot springs pool. Breakfast the next morning was outstanding with mimosas being served all around. Really would recommend this inn for anyone wanting a mountain morning experience!


Birthday getaway!

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.
