The Destination
They don't call it the Switzerland of America for nothing. In Ouray, a former Colorado mining town about halfway between Durango and Grand Junction, the San Juan Mountains seem larger than life, towering over the well-preserved 19th-century buildings that lend Main Street its yesteryear charm. And while its awe-inspiring landscapes have provided the backdrop for a number of movies and TV shows, Ouray remains relatively unsullied by corporate interests, instead serving as a jumping-off point for mountain bikers, hikers, and ice climbers who've opted to take the road less traveled. Of course, at the end of the day, locals and visitors alike congregate at the nearby hot springs for a soak and a deep, refreshing breath of that Rocky Mountain air.

The Digs
Situated on Sixth Avenue, Black Bear Manor is conveniently located for walking around town. All of the accommodations feature an exterior door that opens up to a wraparound veranda, ideal for soaking in the majestic mountain air. Previous guests rave about the divine views of the Rocky Mountains and the Uncompahgre River, in addition to the outstanding service. You'll be swimming in amenities throughout your stay, including a wine reception from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. each evening; complimentary soda, juice, water, and hot tea; chocolate truffles upon arrival; and a late 12 p.m. checkout.

The Diversions
After breakfast, grab your pick and climb up frozen H2O at Ouray Ice Park, lace up your skates and glide across the ice in Rotary Park, or cross-country ski through the powder on the San Juan Mountains. The Red Mountain Pass area offers opportunities for backcountry skiers, while Telluride Ski Resort and Silverton Mountain (both only about an hour away) will satisfy those with a yearning for downhill action on the slopes.

Later, slip into your suits and envelop yourself in the clear natural hot springs in Ouray's massive, watery mecca—Ouray Hot Springs Pool—and enjoy the steamy temperatures, ranging from 96 to 106 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the area of the pool. Then, let the pros work out any leftover kinks with a dreamy, post-plunge massage for an additional fee.

  • "Always a great time! Beautiful town, beautiful part of Colorado, and an amazing B&B! Fantastic place to stay. Can't say enough good things about the Black Bear Manor."
