I was at the Ouray Ice Fest and this was the last room available in town for the entire weekend without mixing up nights in different places. I normally don't stay in B&B much, but with most of the guests being skiers or also there for the Ice Fest it was easy to relate to the guests. Breakfast is normally at 8:30, but Steve will accommodate it to your schedule if you need to ski or climb so we had breakfast at 8 while I was there. That gave plenty of time to get the to the Ice Park for the start of activities there.
He was a creative cook, and I loved the breakfast. He worked around my food allergies. Very good. I had the Spangler Suite - the largest room in the house, with an additional sitting room with futon. That was handy for sitting with my laptop to use the free wireless while I wasn't at the Ice Park. The hot tub on the deck was fun to sit in while the snow fell. The kitchen is open and available with a fridge full of drinks and trays of snacks laid out. Parking is ample and right out the front door. Most of the businesses in town are two blocks away or less. Very easy foot access.
Minor things to keep in mind. The owners have a very small dog that seems to have the run of the place during the day. It's very clean and I didn't smell it at all, even when petting it. But some people with serious pet allergies might have issues.
Small children are generally not a good fit here, as the rooms are quite small and close and the walls are thin. If you want to bring children don't just book it at Expedia etc. Please call first.
Though I didn't use it, there's a gear closet in the basement to dry your ropes and skis etc. The house is a historic building, and there are lots of antiques. Don't just bring your wet boots and gear into the house to dry it. Please use the basement, which is locked up with the same key your room uses.
