Loved it in every way

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Black Bear. We stayed three nights in the King Suite. Great accommodations. Loved the private entrance and exit to our room as well as the hot tub right at the bottom of the stairs. The breakfast was great each day! The highlight for us was Tom performing on the front porch each day during happy hour. LOVED the Jimmy Buffet songs. We found ourselves hiking faster so we would make sure we would get back in time for happy hour. Thanks Tom and Cindy for a great stay.

Excellent Accomodations

The location is just 2 blocks off Main Street close to a stream and is surprisingly quiet from traffic. The place is kept immaculate! The morning hot breakfast was one of my favorite treats coupled with complimentary happy hour on the deck with Tom playing guitar and singing! Tom and Cyndi were very attentive. This will be my go to place when I am in the area!

“Thank you so much for your kind review. We look forward to your next visit.”

Fantastic place to stay

We spent five nights at the Black Bear Manor and loved every minute. Tom and Cyndi are wonderful hosts, and made us feel right at home. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious, and if you are really lucky Cyndi will make raspberry white chocolate muffins. Nearly every evening, Tom sang and played his guitar on the deck during happy hour, which is a great way to end the day. We will definitely stay here the next time we’re in Ouray.

“Thanks you for your kinds words and for staying with us! It was a pleasure hosting your stay and look forward to your next visit!! Happy trails.”

One of our best vacation experiences ever!

My wife and I just returned from a Colorado vacation that included 3 nights at the Black Bear Manor. Our experience could not have been better! Our host, Tom, greeted us as we arrived and immediately showed us to our lovely room (Cliffside King). Every thing was spotless and the entire B&B was tastefully decorated with a great deal of attention to detail. We met several couples of all ages that were friendly and easy to visit with. Cyndi, our other host, provided the most amazing breakfasts including quiche, asparagus strata, excellent potatoes, fresh fruit, pancakes, fresh pastries and hot coffee and juice. The evening happy hour included beer and wine and some top notch music from Tom (a very cool musician and singer). The only thing that could have made it better was a longer stay. We hated to leave. This one is a five star!

“Thank you so much for staying with us. We take pride in our attention to detail and we so appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we are doing. Tom loves to play music during our social hour and appreciates your kind words. Safe travels and we hope to see you soon!”

Best of Everthing

Just the best of everything! Great hosts, location, breakfast and overall hospitality. Room was clean, comfortable and inviting. Pleasantly surprised by so many extra touches. Great find in Ouray. Cant wait to return.

“Thank you so much for staying with us; it was our pleasure. For those folks who love great pizza and live in the Rocklin/Auburn area of California, be sure to have slice or 10 of their pizza, you’ll not regret it!”

Comfort and Charm!

We loved our recent stay at Black Bear Manor. We were greeted by Cyndi and Tom and welcomed into their lovely home as if we were family. Our spacious room had everything we could have wished for including a huge, super comfortable bed, soft fluffy rugs in the bath, cozy bathrobes, spa towels, a beautiful view from our deck (outside entrance) and room for all of our belongings. We used and enjoyed their wonderful spa. We read in the sweet (everything bear- so much to take in!) living room, visited and relaxed on their porch swing, and sat and enjoyed the spectacular view while munching popcorn in the 3rd story room!! Tom and Cyndi were SO nice. We really enjoyed visiting with them. The breakfast in the morning was scrumptious and included so many yummy things. Our favorites were the “amazing potatoes” and spinach strata. All the little touches like water bottles in the fridge, coffee, teas, creamers, fruits and candies and especially the hospitality make Black Bear Manor our new favorite B & B!!

“Thank you so much for staying with us and your kind words. It was our pleasure host your stay that room is one our favorites! We hope to see you in your future travels!”

Wonderful place to stay!

We spent three lovely nights at the Black Bear Manor B & B. What a treat! The B & B is perfectly located near the river and within a short walk to Main St. The accommodations were beyond what one would expect, charming well decorated room and communal areas. The dining room was just bursting with sunshine and filled with everything you could possibly desire for coffee and snacks. On top of all that goodness was breakfast! Wonderful meal cooked and served with love! We felt so welcome and not only enjoyed the company of the hosts but the other guests during Happy Hour. We made an early departure on our last morning before breakfast was served. Much to our surprise we were warmly greeted by our hosts and sent off with warm muffins for the road!

We are already planning our next trip back to the B & B in the fall!

Thank you Tom and Cyndi for the wonderful accommodations. We can’t imagine staying anywhere else when we visit Ouray!

“It was such a please to have you stay with us. Thank you so much for your kind words. We look forward to your next visit and we’ll be sure to have more warm muffins waiting!!”

A Gem of a B&B worth a visit in any season!

We had the privilege of staying at the manor this past weekend. This beautiful home offers an inviting, warm, and cozy ambiance set against the majestic mountains of Ouray and is a perfect charming and romantic retreat! Our room was clean and inviting and we enjoyed soaking in the site’s private hot tub. This was our first stay and we look forward to a future of making more memories at this lovely spot! The service and kindness we received from the hosts, Cindy and Tom, was amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfast prepared fresh and with love! From first impression through our stay we feel like we have made new friends in them!

We are recommending this place to all our friends who plan on staying in Ouray.

Amazing experience

February of this year was the first time I had ever been up in Ouray and everything about our stay with Cyndi and Tom was very elegant and relaxing. There is no other place I would rather stay when I make my next trip to Ouray. The food is to die for, Cyndi is an incredible cook. The company and service couldn’t have been better. Amazing decor and the beautiful scenery had me speechless, can’t wait to go back. Love you Cyndi a.k.a momma bear!!!!

Wonderful place!

This was our first stay in a B&B and we love it!!. Located two blocks from the main street and with wonderful mountain views. A fabulous homemade breakfast was prepared every day by Cyndi. A daily happy hour with wine and beer, and Tom playing the guitar on the porch, very entertaining and a nice opportunity to chat with the other guest. Tom and Cyndi know how to take care of their guest. Thank you so much for an amazing weekend, we love it, and we will come back if we stop in Ouray again. Thanks, Cecilia and Fernando.

Wonderful Stay at Black Bear Manor

We came to Ouray to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary and decided to stay at Black Bear Manor. We were very happy with our stay at Black Bear Manor and we really enjoyed chatting with our host and hostess, Tom and Cyndi. We even got to listen to Tom playing his guitar and singing next door, which was a real treat. Each day we enjoyed a full hot and delicious breakfast while we visited with the other guests before we would leave to enjoy our day in and around Ouray. We would happily stay here again and recommend anyone who wants a very comfortable stay at a B&B to consider making Black Bear Manor their choice.

“Happy Anniversary and thank you for spending your special day with us!! It was a treat having you and we look for to many more anniversaries!!! Happy trails!”

Absolutely Charming!

What a sweet, charming place to stay in Ouray! Tom and Cyndi were VERY kind and hospitable. Our room was cozy and relaxing. We were not able to enjoy breakfast at the Black Bear Manor the first morning because of an early morning hike, but breakfast the second and third mornings made us really regret it! It was absolutely delicious! We also really enjoyed happy hour in the evenings. We had an absolutely lovely time. Highly recommend staying here! We’d definitely come again!!

Our absolute Favorite

We have been coming to Ouray for twenty years and have stayed at many places. This was THE BEST experience we have ever had. The room and setting were amazing but what truly makes the Black Bear Manor special are Tom and Cindy and the thoughtfulness they impart in everything they do. The rooms have all these little conveniences such as exterior doors in every room, and so many little touches. Breakfast was great all 3 days. Just an Awesome Place. Thanks.

“Allen and Kate, thank you so much for staying with us, it was such a pleasure having you!  We really enjoyed your company and Tom is putting together a set list for the next time you come to visit!  😉 We’re looking forward to your next visit!”

Best Weekend Ever…

Getting the marriage license in Telluride, CO! 🙂

We have stayed at Black Bear Manor on numerous occasions. This happens to be an extremely special visit as we stayed in the honeymoon suite and got engaged on the balcony drinking wine while snowing. We shared the news with Tom and Cyndi and they helped us figure out to get married the very next day, Tom even printed the marriage license application for us. They always go over and above to make every experience unique based on the reason for the visit and the season. The food is always amazing and Cyndi is generous with sharing her receipts. We can not thank them enough for making our special weekend one we will never forget! p.s. we loved all the upgrades to the decor since our last visit… Dave & Trish VanSickle

Great stay

We stayed 2 nights in mid February. We loved it. Tom and Cyndi were great. They first contacted us checking on our late arrival and suggest we take an alternate route due to a winter storm approaching. We ended up gettting in really late but they had already emailed us late arrival instructions. To our surprise they were still up and even had champagne for us as it was Valentine’s Day. Breakfast both mornings were great and Tom and Cyndi were great to visit with and very knowledgeable of the area and offered some great suggestions on restaurants and things to do. We love Ouray and will definitely be back!
