We purchased the Black Bear Manor B&B  in 2017,  relocating from Arizona. Tom has a background in dental hygiene, IT, and is a musician who actively plays locally in his spare time. Tom would love to jam with you so bring your instrument (or use one his … he has too many!). Cyndi has a background in pharmaceuticals and health insurance and is a certified Yoga instructor trained in Hatha Yoga, specializing in Yoga Nidra and Yoga for PTSD.

Family and grandchildren led us to choose Ouray as home and we have fallen in love with the town, the people, and the mountains. As a result, we are invested and actively involved in our community we call home.

What a cute B&B! We were lucky to score a last minute reservation. Tom and Cindie were fantastic hosts, and Cindie a fabulous cook. The full breakfast was delicious. We highly recommend Black Bear Manor for your stay in Ouray!

Outstanding experience

This is our 2nd time staying at Black Bear Manor. The first was in 2018. We stayed in the same room this year, we liked it so much. Our favorites about staying at BBM – The wonderful delicious breakfast that is served everyday. Cindy prepares and serves a fantastic spread and it’s so nice to be able to eat outside on the deck and take in the view. Tom provides great humor and also plays a mean guitar at happy hours. We love being able to walk outside of our room via the screen door to the porch and we basically leave the door open all night so we can listen to the roaring river/stream that is right down the street. We spent a lot of downtime on the 3rd floor which is equipped with a very relaxing leather couch, chair and ottoman, where we read books and just took in the view from the expansive window collection which are typically left open so we were able to feel the nice breeze. All in all, I highly recommend this homey B&B.

Wonderful place!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Black Bear Manor! Everything was clean, tidy, and comfortable. Breakfasts were delightful. Our hosts Cindy and Tom were welcoming and friendly. We found it by chance, but will make a point of booking it again the next time we are in Ouray. We will also recommend the Black Bear to our friends.

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at Black Bear Manor in Ouray, CO. The manor is beautiful and is kept very clean. Our room was perfect for our needs. Hosts Tom and Cyndi are outstanding hosts. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived. When we booked our stay, Tom and Cyndi inquired about dietary restrictions. For my husband’s gluten sensitivity, we only expected to be able to find some non-bread options for breakfast. However, Cyndi went way above and beyond and prepared the most delicious gluten-free berry crisp and crustless quiche. And there were also plenty of other options on the buffet that would fit anyone’s diet. We had breakfast on the beautiful patio (and there is also indoor seating for those who prefer it). The comfortable living room was an inviting place to meet and converse with other guests. After a long day of exploring Ouray and the surrounding area, we were treated to an awesome happy hour musical performance by Tom. We will absolutely return to Black Bear Manor in the future!

Awesome place to stay with exceptional hosts!

The best place we stayed during our 2 week trip through Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Texas. Cyndi and Tom made us feel like we were family from the moment we arrived. They offered a continental breakfast for those who want to get an early start to the day or a full breakfast at 9 a.m. for those that want a little more shut-eye! However, we highly recommend Cyndi’s incredible full breakfast; especially the cinnamon buns and biscuits and gravy. The Happy Hour was a nice touch with Tom entertaining us with his guitar and songs and the duet with Cyndi is a must hear. The hot tub provided a nice, relaxing end to an incredible day at the Black Bear Manor. The room was well appointed and to clarify what others have stated about air-conditioning; the room had a portable air conditioner but did not need it during the cool evening. We have found our home away from home when we visit Ouray and will be returning soon. Cyndi and Tom, thanks for a fantastic stay!!!

Perfect Spot to Stop for Awhile

It’s hard to narrow down the best part of our stay at Black Bear Manor. The cozy comfortable and clean room, with beautiful furnishings, the exquisite breakfasts that Cindy and Tom prepared so thoughtfully to accommodate my daughter’s unique diet, the Saturday afternoon happy hour during which Tom shared his fine guitar skills…these are just such good folks who open their hearts and front door to make all who enter feel at home. After a long journey across the country it was a marvelous place to land.

Perfect stay!

This Bed & Breakfast was so beautiful. We booked a stay for our fifth anniversary and accommodations couldn’t have been better than the King Room. We loved the fireplace, the twinkle lights above the draped four-poster bed, and the fresh flowers. On top of that, Cindy was a fantastic cook! We were stuffed to the brim with a delicious breakfast every morning.
I can’t think of one single part of our stay at Black Bear Manor that could have been better. We’re already discussing another trip back to majestic Ouray. This will surely be our host of choice. ?

Best BnB

Home away from home. We met our daughter and husband here for some R&R. Right away I knew this was THE place to stay. Tom and Cindi welcomed us with the best hospitality. Cindi’s amazing gourmet breakfasts, beautiful cozy quiet rooms, happy hour on the patio with Tom singing and playing the guitar. Beautiful views near the river. Tom and Cindi were available always to give us info on hikes etc. A most intimate and personable experience. We will stay here again!!

Best B&B in Colorado!

We spent 2 nights at the Black Bear Manor with our friends and had a BLAST! Tom & Cyndi are the best! The breakfasts were fantastic & I can’t wait to try to make them from Cyndi’s recipes. And to top it off, the HAPPY HOUR singing & jamming with Tom was outstanding! The rooms are all Beautiful! The view from the top floor was phenomenal. Don’t even think about staying at a hotel when you can get the fun & gracious personality of Tom & Cyndi & the best breakfasts in town!

Perfect weekend getaway!

This was our second time in Ouray but our first time in a bed and breakfast there. We were there to celebrate our first anniversary. We could not have asked for a better experience! Tom and Cyndi truly know how to make their guests feel welcome in their home. The rooms and house felt as if you had gone to visit a relative. Everything was clean, comfortable, the food was delicious and the company was great! We look forward to coming back to visit and we will absolutely stay here again!

We cannot say enough good things about Tom & Cyndi and our stay at Black Bear Manor.

Fabulous Stay

Thanks to Tom and Cyndi’s hospitality, we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Black Bear Manor. Check in was a breeze, the room was spacious and clean, and the evening social hour was a bonus. Additionally, Tom entertained the group each evening playing his guitar. Cyndi made amazing breakfast’s each morning along with a special acai bowel for my wife who is a vegan. We will definitely make a return trip to the Black Bear Manor.

Changing of the colors

We went to Ouray to see the changing of the colors and we were very impressed with our stay at the Black Bear Manner. Tom and Cindy did a great job making you feel at home and the rooms were very nice, including all the bears on the chairs. The breakfast was very good and it was served at 9:00 in the morning and gave us plenty of time to see Telluride and the Ouray area for the changing of the colors. The mountains and trees were absolutely gorgeous. As a suggestion make sure you get reservations to a good restaurant early or you’ll be standing in line for an hour and a 1/2 or more also, if you go to Telluride park in Mountain Village and take the free gondola into the town of Telluride, it’s a beautiful ride and also there’s almost no parking in town.

Superior Hospitality

Tom & Cindi were so accommodating. Although there were other people staying there, it truly felt as though we were personal guests in their home. They made our 39th anniversary celebration very special and relaxing. Tom’s “mini-concert” during the happy hour was a very fun time, and we met some great people. Cindi did an over-the-top job with the awesome breakfast, and we were especially grateful for Cindi’s extra effort to have special delicious dishes due to Debbie’s gluten issue. We would love to return some day.

My girl friend and I wanted a special place for a birthday. After exploring options in Ouray on the Internet we chose Black Bear Manor. Wow we we lucky.

The home is located within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and many hiking trailheads.

We can’t wait to visit again.

Home away from home

I stayed here for a week of work and play and couldn’t have been happier! Tom & Cyndi are incredibly kind, hospitable and friendly. They went the extra mile in accommodating my vegetarian diet at breakfast. And, by the way, breakfast was different every day and was always hearty and delicious….yum! Happy hour on the porch with Tom serenading us with a variety of music was the perfect way to end the day. My room was very comfortable and they were quick to provide anything I needed during my stay. I honestly felt like I was a personal guest in their home with the freedom to explore on my own as well. I will be back to stay at this enchanting & lovely home! Thank you, Tom & Cyndi, for a most delightful week! <3

Anniversary road trip

My husband and I just happened to be In Ouray because the highway was closed down due to forest fires. We called around and were referred by another hotel. Tom and Cyndi were there to greet us and welcome us with such gracious hospitality.
What a relaxing and welcoming experience. The bedroom was immaculate, spacious and very comfortable with beautiful mountain views. Not to mention, they had happy hour and live music on their spacious deck.
This is a gem for anyone looking for a feel of home with extra T L C.

A time to remember

We stayed at BBM this summer and it was one of the best B&B experiences we have ever had! I had researched all the B&B’s in the area and concluded on this one and I’m glad that I did. Owners Tom and Cindy were so welcoming and accommodating. We stayed in the room with the in-room hot tub and it was really clean, with a balcony, and very romantic, complete with the decorations and the mood lights. BBM is right next to a river where we enjoyed the sounds of the raging waters. We also were able to directly hike from BBM! They suggested we hike the Perimeter Trail and this was a great hike around Ouray. They even provided us with hiking snacks for the hike! We appreciate the suggestion! The breakfast was delicious! They made omelets and this amazing blueberry dish (can’t remember the name and can’t find it on their website)! They were also so kind as to have made a special circumstance to provide us dinner because all of the restaurants were closed down due to COVID. My favorite part was when, at sunset, Tom played guitar and sang (even Cindy too!) Rocky Mtn High and even our wedding song (which we never told to him!). If you want to stay at a B&B where all the details are taken care of and the owners provide a special experience, this is the one to choose. We are glad we did.

The Place to stay in Ouray

It is an inn, it is a BnB, it is one of my favorite places to stay when visiting Ouray. Rooms are very nice with comfortable beds. Management is super friendly, supportive,and helpful. But what makes this place special is the relaxing vibe of great homemade breakfasts after sleeping in, a mellow happy hour with entertainment, and access to all Ouray has to offer within walking distance. If in the area I stay nowhere else. It IS my go to place.

Great gateway

It was a last minute trip for my gf and I. After a 5 hour road trip from Denver, it was nice to see that Tom was on the stage performing music to his fans. My fan boy heart started to melt. It was a very much of a surprise that this was what I first see when arriving to the manor. I was happy and joyful, after introducing ourselves we was taken to our room and informed about our stay. A tour of the manor was great and wonderful. It was a wonderful time and experience to stay here, I would love to stay here once again when it becomes possible for me. The town is small, yet if you walk around it can take about two days to view the quick getaways to the mountains around along with the waterfalls. Did not get to do the hot springs but the hot tub was enough.
Thank you for your hospitality

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Black Bear Manor – gracious, detail oriented hosts. Our room was meticulously clean with exceptional views of the mountains. The big surprise was Happy Hour with a little live music we are so craving at this time. We are early to rise folks and took advantage of the earlier breakfast continental option which got us out hiking before conditions felt crowded.

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.

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.

The owners Tom and Cindy made us feel at home at their B & B, Beautiful breakfast, clean and cozy environment! Perfect location a short walk to all that is happening. I would not stay anywhere else. And I hear they house the champion ice climbers, must be the breakfast!!!

“Thank you so much for staying with us and for the nice compliments! And yes, and we get climbers from all over the world; it HAS to be the breakfast!”

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.

“Thank you so much for your kind words and it was our pleasure to have you stay with us!! We look forward to your next visit!”

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!!!!

“Thank you so much for staying with us! Mamabear appreciates your kind words!!!”

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.

My daughter and I were guests on July 5th, 2018, and it was such a wonderful experience. My 26-yr-old daughter called this place a “fairy land.” It’s beautiful, clean, comfortable, and the breakfast was the best ever! Tom and Cyndi were so kind and fun. We’ll definitely be back!

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!!

“It was such a pleasure having you both stay with us and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! We hope to see you again soon!!! Safe travels!”

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

~ Thank you so much for sharing your special day with us and it was our honor to be part of it!
