Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Very nice B&B the Maror has an observation room that is glass on 3 sides with beautiful veiws of the mountains. The outdoor hot tub is 100 yards from the river when you are sitting in the hot tub you can hear the river which makes a very relaxing soak. the rooms are nice a quiet, very clean and well appointed. The breakfast is secound to none the only danger is eating too much and not being able to go enjoy the town.

It was our first visit to the Black Bear Manor & it was a real treat. We visited during the ice festival and although it was more than chilly outside the warmth of our stay was great. The manor itself is absolutely beautiful. The decor is a perfect blend of quality, nostalgia & comfort. Our room was warm, inviting, comfortable, cozy and quiet. The bed gave both of us a perfect nights sleep. Breakfast not only offered quite a variety of choices, but tasted delicious. Our hosts were gracious, kind and accommodating. We will definitely return and the next time, we will stay longer. Thank you Phil and Lucy!

Room Tip: We didn't see a room that wasn't lovely.

We stayed here last May, right after Memorial Day, could not have found a better place to spend the night. enjoyed Ouray so much we spent another night! Breakfast was awesome, walk to main street was uphill but easy.

Our host said the previous weekend was busy, but we were the only ones in the place that week. My wife especially appreciated the afternoon wine, and the hospitality was incredible. Thinking about seeing Ouray in winter, soon. We will definitely stay at BBM again!

Not bad for just driving thru and picking a place to stay.

My husband and I have enjoyed going to the Black Bear Manor for about four years now. Each and every time it never disappoints. This visit we were able to meet the owners, Lucie and Phil. They are wonderful people who really take pride in their bed and breakfast. The breakfasts were always fabulous - amazing egg dishes, great bakery items, and more. Lucie was accommodating to all the different food preferences at her B&B - she made excellent dishes for us (gluten-free) and a vegetarian couple. We even got a gluten-free bakery item each breakfast. We loved the chocolate muffins and the blueberry cornbread - yum! They also serve complimentary wine every night at 4:30 PM. My husband and I thought the wine was very good, (and that's coming from two people who can be a bit picky in this area). I also noticed that the same lovely woman who cleaned our rooms a few years ago is still there. She does a wonderful job and is so pleasant. The Black Bear Manor really feels like a home away from home. Lastly, after staying at multiple places in Ouray, my husband and I feel this is the best value. Not only are your rooms very nice, but you get a complimentary breakfast, (which fills you up till about 2-3 PM in the afternoon), and then complimentary wine at 4:30 PM. When you take this all into consideration, it's a FABULOUS value! It's the best place to stay in Ouray!

Like a little place of Heaven (Winter Wonderland)
Within a reasonable drive from Telluride ski resort and a daytrip to surrounding towns with spectacular views of the mountains and outdoor activities galore.
This area of Colorado is one of the most beautiful places I have traveled to in the world.
The Inn offered a very nice spacious clean room with a private porch entrance, spectacular
views of the mountains and an outdoor jacuzzi hot tub that was a great to just soak and relax in.
This was a New Years Eve weekend trip for us which included a beautiful
Fireworks display over the mountains at midnight.
We enjoyed our stay in this quaint little town within walking distance from the Inn.
The owners Luci & Phil are charming and down to earth folks offering sincere gracious hospitality
straight from the heart & kitchen! A huge delightful breakfast was prepared
every morning with lots of love. We can’t wait to go back, maybe in the Spring,
Summer & Fall. But most definitely will return next winter :)

My wife and I decided to do a last minute trip to Ouray. We found a last minute room at the Black Bear and were not disappointed. We've been going to Ouray for many years but this was our first time staying here. This will be our go to place from now on!!! Phil and Luci (Owners) were AWESOME, and super friendl hosts. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and well fed! This B&B is quiet, clean, and relaxing. The "happy hour" is an excellent touch.

Breakfast was AMAZING! The hosts were very accommodating; suiting many different diets: gluten free, vegetarian, and meat eaters alike will not be disappointed by the breakfasts. I think we gained 10 pounds each it was so good, and filling!

We will be back!

Room Tip: Room number 2 was great. The hot tub was right outside.

We spent 2 nights at the Black Bear Manor just after Christmas. We had been to this location 10 years ago when it was under different ownership (and a different name) - so this trip was an anniversary of sorts. The new owners Phil and Lucy have knocked it out of the park! The rooms were very comfortable, clean, uncluttered and free wifi. They provided a great selection of sweet and savory breakfast items (included) that was wonderfully delicious and homemade! The room had a booklet of the restaurants that are located in town with menus/hours - very helpful! Phil and Lucy are both so accommodating, pleasant and kind. They made us feel very welcome. A perfect couples getaway! We decided not to wait so long before we go back again.
