We purchased the Black Bear Manor from Phil and Lucie in May of 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.

Located right in the
heart of it.
Sit back and leave the cares of the outside world behind as you enjoy our rural Colorado countryside and take in the majestic beauty of the San Juan Mountains.
Stroll along the Uncompahgre River Walk Loop, hike the 4.3-mile Ouray Perimeter Trail to two spectacular waterfalls, the Box Canyon Waterfall and Park and the Cascade Waterfall, and the natural hot springs pool. You can walk easily to anywhere in town from our convenient Sixth Avenue location where you can browse through the quaint artisan shops and galleries, and enjoy culinary delights on Historic Main Street Ouray.
