Arriving at the Black Bear Manor in Ouray, Colorado we were warmly greeted by the innkeeper, Chris, who promptly offered us a glass of wine and brief orientation to the inn. We were then shown to our first floor room, which was small but comfortable. In looking over the room, we thought it a little odd that the "bathroom" sink... More

Hello, and thank you very much for the comments. They are always helpful as we take all reviews very seriously. While most all of our 400 + reviews are nearly perfect, sometimes we do miss something, and are committed to corrected any shortsightedness. Chris has been a super addition to our staff and does indeed prepare breakfasts almost to beautiful... More

I spent four nights at the Black Bear Manor on a recent business trip to the area and had a wonderful experience. I've been fortunate to have stayed in some of the nicest hotels in the US and abroad and found this little bed and breakfast to be quite the gem. Phil and Lucy could not have been more gracious...

We only stayed one night in Ouray, but were pleased that we chose this place. The scenery is beautiful and the town is historic. We loved the hot tub and the breakfast. The room was very comfortable and clean. No complaints!

Black Bear Manor is a great B&B for a lot of reasons. What made our recent visit most memorable was a combination of our fellow guests, and the over-the-top gourmet breakfasts served by our host, Chris. Oh yes, I have to mention the hosted "happy hour". It was a wonderful way to get to know our fellow guests, in addition... More

Chris and Mike prepared amazing different food every morning. We had a variety of fruit with amazing garnishes, Sausage & Biscuits Casserole with fresh herbs, potatoes with herbs, quiche, egg enchiladas with all the toppings, upside down cake, coffee, juices, expresso. Their presentations were lovely and the association with other residents from all over was terrific. If you couldn't make... More

The kitchen fumes wafted upstairs into a small room with a huge armoire leaving minimal floor space. There is only a single door that opens to a narrow common walkway. There is no window and no air conditioning but there is a ceiling fan and a box fan and some sort of humidifier with no instructions. The continental breakfast had... More

Thank you for the review, as we take our guests comments very serious and always attempt to rectify where possible and become even better servants to our guests.

Based on the description and the $200 +tax room rate, I was disappointed. Our room was on the west side with a vaulted ceiling up to the roof, which got really hot. Granted, we stayed during a warm spell, but our room was unbearably hot, we were miserable. One side of the double doors was fixed permanently closed so the... More

This is one of the best B & B's we have stayed at and we have stayed at many all over the USA. The room we had was wonderful. King size bed was best quality I've had at any property.

Near a river, lots of hiking in the area with many opportunities for photography. Everywhere you look are spectacular views. It's a really cute B&B with an excellent gourmet breakfast in the morning. It was one of the best I've ever stayed and I definitely plan to visit again.
