About Us

Our plaque now hanging in the Outlaw Restaurant in Ouray.

      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.

PERFECT SPOT

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.

OUR REVIEWS

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!
