“Christmas House B&B in Ouray was the greatest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2009

I can think of no better way to spend time in Ouray, CO, than with a stay at the Christmas House Bed & Breakfast. The innkeepers, the Crosbys, are master hosts: thoughtful, considerate of every detail, and wonderful cooks. The breakfasts were divine! This B&B is on Main Street right in the heart of Ouray--everything is within walking distance. The inn had a marvelous selection of videos so guests could simply relax in their rooms after a day of shopping, swimming, hiking, or exploring. The price is an excellent value for the service provided. We had visited Ouray last summer on a day excursion and vowed to return this summer for a longer stay. We had looked forward to this all year and definitely were not disappointed. The innkeepers helpfully answered our incessant questions about recommendations for dining and other outings. Wonderful place!

For my birthday, we stayed 2 nights in the Tannenbaum Suite...and it was a delightful experience! Definitely "splurge" and get the suite! My husband said it was the best we have ever stayed at and we have been in many around the world! The suite was so cozy and such wonderful attention to detail. The queen bed (though a bit small when you're use to a king) was so comfy....when my husband turned over, I couldn't even feel him! The views absolutely incredible. Now the crème de la crème....the scrumptous breakfast each morning in the lovely dining room. The Inn is a vintage victorian home with an amazing history. The work that George & Allison did to turn this into a functional B&B was a labor of love and works on so many levels. The dining experience was punctuated by the tasty breakfasts that George prepared each morning. I loved waking up early, sneaking down to the dining room, pressing the coffee button (all ready to go!) and then enjoying coffee in this marvelouse room next to the window as the sun was coming up! When Allison came in, we would chat as she scurried around turning on the music, the fireplace, the gaslamps and getting everything perfect for us! Thank you for the wonderful experience!

The Christmas House B&B is a great place to stay. George and Allyson are great innkeepers and we really enjoyed our stay there. We were there for the 4th. of July and even then it was a quite relaxing stay A great place to relax and enjoy the mountains.

george and allyson crosby were the most incredible owners at a b&b that we have ever experienced! They met us at the foot of the stairs at exactly 9:00 a.m. (our chosen time for their gourmet breakfast) and personally sat us at a beautiful cozy table in a totally decked out dining room. Beautiful music played softly and candles were lit as they brought out a breakfast fit for a queen and my king!!!!! The setting was Christmas and yet wonderfully romantic. The food they themselves prepared was out of this world.
That same evening, after spending a day in one of the most beautiful towns in America, we went back to our room for a wonderful, romantic evening in the private jacuzzi tub and sauna in our room. A trip I will cheerish forever........friends in George and Allyson I will also cheerish for the rest of my life. I plan on keeping in touch with them forever. They felt like friends I had known forever.
I have vacationed in Ouray since the 60"s and I will say this was by far the best time ever....Thanks to George and Allyson...Thanks to them and I hope they never get too busy to see us again!!!!

Superb small B&B... The best we've been with! All the amenities at way less than than you would expect with a gourmet breakfast with a real chef!

The Christmas House was a great play to stay in the wonderful little town of Ouray, Colorado. In June of 2004 a party of 7 of my family and friends occupied two rooms on the second floor. We stayed 2 nights in the B&B. The rooms were spacious and the sleeping arrangements were adequate, but during our stay there was a little too much dust everywhere to my liking. Our room had satellite TV, but it had an intermittent signal and was rendered useless. On a better note, the bathrooms were clean, the decks, saunas, and hot tubs were wonderful, and the breakfast was amazing! There was also a wide selection of CDs and DVDs offered at no charge for overnighters to watch up in their rooms. The family housing the guests was very nice and informative, and were a joy to do business with.

Overall the B&B was worth the price. If you are looking for a good bed and breakfast in Ouray, this is your place. It is very possible to find a hotel room in town that is a lower price and is overall better quality, but the bed and breakfast experience's premium is something that should be overlooked. Consider the Christmas House as somewhere to stay in Ouray!

We love the mountains & my husband & I found them all hiding in SW Colorado. We booked a suite at the Christmas House & expected a little B&B with few amenities & a excuse for breakfast... BUT we got a postcard view, a big screen stereo TV with hundreds of free movies, our own private jacuzzi for two, a fireplace, EVEN a private suana for two! Breakfast was true gourmet with the owner/chef a former resturaunteur from Santa Fe. MY MY what a treat for our 10th anniversary! We Love the Christmas House & OURAY!!
