Ouray, truly the "Gem of the Rockies," provides a spectacular setting, nestled in a circle of mountains and cliffs. Located in southwestern Colorado, Ouray was incorporated in 1876 with much of its history wrapped in mining. Silver mining went full speed until the 1893 Silver Panic, and then gold production boomed with the discovery of Camp Bird gold. From 1896 until 1910 the mine produced more than $26 million in riches.

As the mining operations closed down, visitors kept coming for the beauty of the area and the natural hot springs. They continue to come today for the same reasons. The Ouray Hot Springs Pool is open year-round and soothes the muscles of many guests. Ouray is also known as the "Jeep Capital of the World" with 500 miles of 4-wheel trails in the high mountains. Rental companies can provide jeeps, as well as seasoned drivers, for these trips which often provide views of old ghost towns and abandoned mines.

Visitors are not only captivated by the breath-taking scenery but also by the warmth and friendliness of Ouray's residents and the Victorian charm of many restored turn-of-the-century structures. On your next visit to historic Ouray, why not include an overnight experience at one of our charming bed and breakfasts where you'll be met with gracious hospitality and comfortable quality lodging.
