We recently spent three night at the Black Bear. We actually lived in Ouray for seven years, so we pretty much know every lodging alternative in town and there are many really nice ones. On our last trip we decided to give the Black Bear a shot. We had been in the lobby, but we had never seen the rooms. When we checked in we were pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the room was. One problem I have with B&Bs is I always wake up really early and need a place to hang out. I was thrilled to find that the Black Bear has an "observatory" only a few feet from my room. This little room is comfortably decked out with sofa, chairs TV and microwave. It has glass around three sides with glorious views of the San Juans. It was the perfect place for me to sit, answer my email and watch the sun rise. I was thirsty so I decided to run down the the kitchen to see if anyone was up fixing coffee. It was too early but I found a small fridge full of soft drinks and water provided for the guests. Nice. I didnt even have to fumble around for change. I won't even bother to mention the breakfast because it has been covered in other reviews. I suppose that if you were allergic to several food items on the menu, you would probably just sit down to eat any way and have the cook call 911!
