Lodging recommendations

We have never visited this community. My wife and I (no children) like quiet places, no motels, no adjoining residences, cabins, private homes. We would like a nice view from a deck. Can be out of town. We like green vegetation rather than dust, dead grass, etc. . Something under $200 per night all costs included. King bed is best. Did I mention quiet, clean, and friendly professional staff?

Is there anything like this in or outside of Ouray?

Thank you.

I think Ouray may be a good place for you to visit. Don't know why I didn't think of this earlier! Plus you can go visit Silverton, Telluride and Durango.

Look at the hotel reviews here on TA. Black Bear B&b looks really nice as does Hot Springs Inn which has a private balcony. Plus the hot springs will be nice.

You may also want to look at Telluride.

Check out the Cow Creek Suite just above the Cow Creek Antique Shop in Ridgway, CO (Just north of Ouray). We are staying July 2nd and 3rd and can't wait. It's brand new. Mary Beth, the owner has been so helpful. Check out her website. http://www.cowcreek.qwestoffice.net/5001.html

Also, the Time Out Inn looks nice too.

I would not stay at Hot Springs Inn as they are very rude! It looks really nice on the website but the lady I talked with on the phone was very rude and not very helpful. I guess she stays booked and doesn't need new clients and can get away with being rude. I would rather stay some place not as nice and the people very friendly and helpful than to a nicer place with rude owners.

My husband and I stayed at the Black Bear B&B last August - it was by far one of the best B&B's we've stayed at so far. The owners are super nice, treat you like family - and very accomodating. I changed my reservation 3 times and they were patient with me every time! Luci cooks/bakes the best food. It's a couple blocks off of the main road, so you don't have a lot of traffic noise - day or night. And even saw deer every day. Everything is in walking distance - we never used our car while we were in town.

We also stayed in the royal suite, which is more than $200/night, but it has a king sized bed, private balcony, hot tub, huge bathroom, plus a separate outside entrance, and a sitting area. And I never heard any of the other guests while they were in their rooms. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
