          Perfect getaway weekend


          My husband and I decided to stay at the Black Bear Manor for two nights over Memorial Day weekend to celebrate our first anniversary. It was everything the reviews said and more!

          We decided to splurge and book the Queen Suite and it was well worth it. We had our own two person jetted tub, fluffy bathrobes, truffles, and a bottle of wine! The views were wonderful and we had a private porch. The other porches on our floor were also part of the outdoor access, so people walk through them on the way to their rooms (ours was at the end and around the corner, which was nice). I have to say that Phil and Lucie pay attention to every detail-- from the nice toiletries in the rooms, to the guides to Ouray, the snacks available in the kitchen, and the bookcase full of books. They were always willing to give a recommendation of a restaurant or an activitiy as well. One thing to be aware of is that the Black Bear is on a dirt/gravel street, so bring appropriate shoes! Ouray is a very small town, so you will want to walk everywhere. It's also very casual, so don't worry about dressing up! Don't miss the drive to Silverton. Overall, the Black Bear Manor is fabulous and we would definitely go back!

          Great food, Great sites, Great People


          I had a wonderful stay at this amazing B&B. The views all around are breath taking. Phil and Lucie are great people. The beds are comfortable and the the lounge areas are very comforting.

          Fabulous hospitality


          Great bed and breakfast in scenic Ouray. Beautifully appointed rooms. The hospitality of Phil and Lucie (proprietors) is warm and engaging. The breakfasts were outstanding. Great food and plenty of it. Would have been served breakfast in bed had we wanted to. Would gladly stay again and would definitely recommend.

          Thanks Lucie and Phil for the very enjoyable stay at the Black Bear Manor.

          Outstanding food and hospitality!


          I have stayed at b&bs all over the US and Europe, but this one stands out above them. The breakfast is what dreams are made of, and the hospitality was just right. Not too intrusive, but attentive to all our needs. Looking forward to visiting again! I can't imagine a better place to stay in Ouray.

          People + place = heaven


          customer service, the true nature of what it means to be a servant in the cause of a guest, is rapidly becoming a lost art. both phil and lucie are perfect hosts, true genuine souls who care about everyone who crosses the threshold. it is not patronizing, it is honest enjoyment of who they are and what they do. and that then translates into the details. just look at the photos of the sumptuous rooms, the exacting details of a loving restoration. this is the best place you can stay while exploring the little switzerland of the san juans.

          don't miss out, my wife and i thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

          Couldn't be better


          We can't say enough about our stay at the Black Bear Manor. Phil and Lucie made our weekend stay one of the most memorable experiences we have had. From the beautiful room with both indoor and outdoor access, the wine, the truffles, the most fabulous breakfasts you have ever had, and of course Smudge the Scottie, to our welcoming hosts, we couldn't ask for more. Lucie even made a special birthday cake for us when she found out it was my birthday. The view from outside on the patio or from the third floor obsevatory is awesome. We can't wait to go back and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

          Can't wait t go back to Black Bear Manor in Ouray!


          Phil and Lucie redefine the word hospitality (in Hawaii we used to call it "Aloha") ~ We took a 240 mile round trip motorcycle ride from Cortez to Ouray to step away overnight. Little did we know by booking 1 night at the Bed & Breakfast we were stepping in to a jewel-like manor in the middle of "little Switzerland." The accomodations were so comfortable, the atmosphere so relaxing and relationships so refreshing. We can hardly wait to go back! The only change we'll make is to stay longer.

          Pampered and Relaxed in Ouray, CO


          Wonderful room, amazing views right out our windows. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful and worth lingering over with the mountain view out the window. They even have their own blend of coffee! The hosts were welcoming and eager to please in a laid back way. We loved the obervatory - got up early to watch the sunrise over the mountains and checked email with high speed wireless. Truffles, bottle of wine and high end toiletries in the room made us feel like we were at a 5 star hotel with personal touches! We've got to go back to renew friendships and see the magnificent mountain views in another season. We've never relaxed and enjoyed a vacation so much!

          Spoil Yourself at the BlackbearManor!


          From the warm welcome afforded by the hosts, Phil & Lucie, at the BlackBearManor to the 'home from home' feeling and the space and charm of the immaculate suites and rooms, this is truly the place to stay in Ouray. A beautiful breakfast (more like a feast!!) awaits you in the 'Le Cafe' dining room (with its fantastic views of Mt Hayden), freshly prepared by Lucie,which will set you up for the day (we never needed lunch!). The obsevatory on the third floor offers one of the best 280 degree panoramic views of the majestic Rockies available.

          Magical & Memorable. If it's a special occassion for a spouse or loved one, let Phil and Lucie know in advance and they will spoil ya rotten!!!

          Wonderful place, incredible service!


          We had a wonderful experience at this recently renovated B&B in Ouray. The rooms were beautiful and immaculate with wonderful touches like truffles on the pillows and pampering toiletries in the bathroom. The hosts, Phil and Lucie were so gracious and friendly. The breakfasts were amazing and taken in a room over looking the mountains. It was the perfect weekend! Best service ever at a B&B!

We found the brew pub we had eaten at two years ago but there was no parking and traffic was unbelievable so we decided to get out of Dodge (Telluride). Headed out of town to get to Ophir Pass. Stopped at a National Forest campground and had lunch. Talked to the ...

But you can still sign up for Sunday’s ride (July 13), which uses the same route, but rides from east-to-west. Super hearty cyclists with a penchant for pain actually ride both Saturday and Sunday; it’s called the Double Triple Bypass! To read one ...

          ... at the end of the catwalk, we could see the lower part of the falls free-falling down into the the river from inside its own natural boxed-in canyon area. It wasn't flowing as hard or fast as it had been it years past, but it was still pretty to see.

          Stephanie, Zack, Kurtis, my dad, and I all walked down the several short flights of stairs to get to dry ground inside the canyon beside the river. The canyon and river were also ...

We also got some great pictures of Red Mountain across the valley and it was beautiful! Then, before it got dark, we started our drive back.
