This place is lovely! It was clean and the rooms were spacious. We stayed in a 2 Queen room. The housekeeping staff is very courteous and do their job very well, as does the guy who takes care of the hot tubs. The hot tubs were wonderful! After a day of exploring, a soak in the hot tub was well... More

Three of us stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment, no. 200. Wow, it exceeded our expectations in every way. It's enormous! The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom with two showers (!) and a walk-in wardrobe that is about the size of our smallest bedroom at home in the UK. The other bedroom is also spacious with a bathroom... More

We enjoyed the Box Canyon Lodge very much. The staff was so helpful with itinerary and suggestions. We enjoyed the close proximity to the falls and the nice hot soak after a long day of excursions. There is so much to do in the area it was a super location and look forward to doing it again in the future.... More

We spent 2 nights at the Box Canyon and, as usual, our room was CLEAN, comfortable and the stay was perfect! Upgrades have been made to the rooms since we first were there many years ago and they make the stay even better! We had never been to Ouray in mid-June and were pleasantly surprised to be "before" season. Everything... More

Had a wonderful time here and felt like royalty soaking in our own hot springs tub. This place is probably very popular in winter, but we aren't ski-types, just on a springtime road trip through the mountains. Speaking of - Mountains in all directions, and a waterfall view from the room. Nice room and GREAT, pleasant service. Breakfast was a... More

A beautiful location and great Hot Spring tubs! The good: Location, views, hot tubs on the hillside, bed linens. We stayed in room 136 (king with microwave and fridge) on the second floor facing the hot spring tubs. The room was a little small but nice, knotty pine walls, and the tub and toilet are in a separate room from... More

Dear Joanne L, Our rooms in the courtyard area of the property are some of our most popular. Although they are cozy, the view of the tubs and the deer as they graze on the hillside in the morning is a wonderful way to start the day. Because of the size of our rooms, we cannot put in larger appliances,... More

We thought this was the best inn that we stayed in the town of Ouray. They have three tiers of mineral hot tubs with a great view of the ridge nearby. The service was very friendly, we were able to get some laundry done, lots of ice, free coffee in the morning. It's as good as you will get in... More

Very relaxing, clean, convenient walk to everything in town and not crowded at all. The mineral hot tubs felt great and had no sulphur smells either. Can only imagine how great they must be in the winter. There were even two mule deer that hung out around the hot tubs and the picnic area above. The bed was very comfortable.... More

Dear Sherwood77, It is true that soaking in our all natural mineral hot spring tubs is a magical experience in the winter. On a snowy evening, as the snow falls into the water, surrounding you in a steamy wonderland, very few experiences can compare. Of course, an early morning soak on a summer day, enjoying a cup of freshly roasted... More

My wife and myself recently spent a day here. Loved the private hot tubs, get to them early since after everyone getting back from dinner or excursions.

Dear travelerinnm2014, Happy Anniversary! I am so glad to hear we were able to make your special day more memorable. Perhaps one of the most wonderful experiences one can have is soaking in the natural mineral hot springs as deer graze mere feet away. There is little to compare to that feeling of closeness with nature. Our favorite thing is... More
