For an alternative to hotel lodging on your next mountain getaway, choose a bed and breakfast in Ouray, Colorado. The historic mining town of Ouray, also known as the “Switzerland of America”, is a spectacular sight to behold. The town is nestled in the northern San Juan Mountains with surrounding peaks reaching over 14,000 feet. The town and the surrounding area offer many activities. In the summer, you can hike, Jeep, fish, golf, bike, ride horses, and take a mine tour. In the winter, you can cross-country ski , snowshoe, ice skate, ice climb, or travel to our nearby downhill ski areas of Silverton and Telluride. The spring and fall seasons have much to offer as well. A trip to Ouray is not complete without a visit to the many shops, galleries, and restaurant in town. A soak in Ouray Hot Springs Pool under the sun or stars is also a must. No matter what your interest, this is truly the “Gem of the Rockies”. You can enjoy all that Ouray has to offer while lodging in a BBIC inspected and approved inn.
