I'm a Coloradan and my family have been vacationing in Ouray since I was a small child (we were usually camping until we all aged). I stayed here with family for the first time more than 10 years ago and have always liked the convenient location - easy walk to all shopping, restaurants and the hot springs. Some years ago I noticed the property changed hands and it just gets better and better with each visit. I unmarried/no kids/devoted dog owner and this establishment is perfect for my needs. These days I am either there as a couple or solo (with dog). It's been great for all purposes. The new owners create a friendly B&B atmosphere, but without the lack of privacy (I prefer more independence than an actual enclosed B&B offers). They have added a breakfast nook (I think it was new when I was here last spring) with fresh breakfast every morning. And the premises look better than ever. It's owner operated and Dave and Chad have their work cut out for them in the busy season, but they're always attentive and friendly in between tasks. Bravo! The rooms also appear to be upgraded each time I visit. It seems like the bed was more comfortable this summer. Maybe new mattresses? The property has ample space to give a sense of privacy, but is also open and easy to access from room to parking lot, etc. There was even a wedding happening while I was there this time, but it didn't consume space for other guests and I still had quiet time on the river. There's a lovely picnic area for when I've gathered there with family. My dog is slightly disabled so I always get the rooms on the bottom floor of the south building (the only zero stairs rooms). The only drawback is that I could hear some heavy walkers on the floor above. But we Ouray visitors are rarely in the rooms since the whole reason for being in Ouray is being out in the natural beauty. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying the River's Edge!
