Lucy and Phil, the owners, are lovely. They have a happy hour in the late afternoon for guests, there is always hot water available to make tea, and bottled water to quench your thirst. And Lucy makes one mean breakfast. My complaint has to do with the room. We were on the first floor in the back. We had a...

Hi Diane, and thanks for taking the time to provide us feedback. We welcome all comments. It is very difficult to have a mattress firmness in every room that pleases everyone. For some it's to hard, for others its to soft. We regret it was not right for you. As for snoring by other guests, perhaps sometimes people in other...

This was my first time staying in a Bed and Breakfast. We walked in to a clean home that was very welcoming. Lucy was in the middle of cleaning buy stopped right away to welcome us and help us settle in to our room. Our 2nd floor room had a door to the outside to the wrap around balcony. The...

We couldn't have been happier staying at Black Bear Manor! Right from the greeting at the front door, you feel right at home. Our room was lovely, and very comfortable. But you have to stay for the breakfast. Lucie (especially Lucie) and Phil put out a spread that would be the envy of the major hotels! You have to experience...

The Manor is located in a quaint mountain town and is a delightful place to stay. Our room, the largest , had an awesome mountain view. Chris was so welcoming and provided delicious breakfasts as well as wine each late afternoon- yesterday we sat on the swing on the veranda, reading and sipping wine. Truly this is a wonderful mountain...

Arriving at the Black Bear Manor in Ouray, Colorado we were warmly greeted by the innkeeper, Chris, who promptly offered us a glass of wine and brief orientation to the inn. We were then shown to our first floor room, which was small but comfortable. In looking over the room, we thought it a little odd that the "bathroom" sink...
