Welcome to the Black Bear Manor


We are excited to announce we, Tom & Cyndi Elliston, are now the proud owners of the Black Bear Manor in Ouray, CO! Yay!

We are so thankful to the previous owners, Phil & Lucie, for creating such a warm and welcoming place for you to enjoy up here in the San Juan mountains; they have set the bar pretty high. We will be doing our best to continue offering the excellent food and comforts they have provided over the past 12 years while adding our own touches along the way.

Cyndi is a WONDERFUL host and cook and will do her best to satisfy you culinary tastes. As well as being a gracious host, Tom is a musician, so if you are one too, bring along your instrument or borrow one of his (he has (too) many)! 

More updates coming soon!!

As TripAdvisor's TOP rated property, you can walk easily to anywhere in town from our convenient Sixth Avenue location. This country inn is the perfect oasis for rest, relaxation and reflection. Choose one tastefully decorated room, or take all nine including suites. 

The Manor is perfect for a few nights, or for Workshops, Retreats, Wedding groups and Family Reunions to gather and celebrate on the large decks beneath the Mountain Peaks. Sit back, leave the cares of the outside world behind as you enjoy our rural Colorado countryside. Take in the majestic beauty of the Rocky Mountains. Stroll along the Uncompahgre River experiencing the peace and quiet, walk to 2 waterfalls and Natural hot springs pool, or browse through the quaint artisan shops and galleries on Main Street Ouray. You can sleep in and awaken to the smell of fresh baked goods wafting into your dreams – basically enjoy life as it was meant to be. Come, let us pamper you into relaxation.

Each day our vast breakfast buffet includes scrambled eggs, baked casseroles, fresh fruit, potatoes, a meat choice, yogurts, breads, juice, our own dark roast coffee blend and more, so most diets are easily accommodated.  We apologize that our peak season (June-Oct)  does not allow for any special dish preparation.
