Yankee B&B

Return to a tranquil time when watching the sunset from the gazebo and sitting by a crackling fire were the most cherished moments of your day. Discover the intimate charm and cozy comfort of old Colorado at The Damn Yankee Country Inn in historic Ouray.


Relax your body. Ten uniquely appointed rooms await, each with a private bath and entrance, ceiling fans, special wallpapers and telephones. Drift off to the soothing music of a mountain stream from your luxurious queen-sized bed. Snuggle under a plush down comforter. Sit back and watch your favorite film on cable television. Drink in fresh mountain air. Relax in our hot tub under the gazebo. Or gather in the parlor, resembling a den or library with leather furniture and stone hearth, to play the baby grand piano, read or just to hear of other guests' adventures.


Feast your senses. Enjoy complimentary sodas, fresh fruit and afternoon snacks in the towering third floor observatory/lounge which affords a panoramic view of mountains and waterfalls. And savor a hearty breakfast as you watch the sun glint over the mountaintops. Picnic basket lunches available for that day of mountain exploration.

The Damn Yankee has become known for its special amenities, fine furnishings, hearty gourmet breakfasts/dinners and welcoming atmosphere. The convenience of traditional lodging is enhanced by the quiet and charm of this bed and breakfast Country Inn.



Revitalize your soul. Here, cradled in the splendor of the San Juan Mountains, you'll discover the perfect escape. Melt away your cares in Ouray's famous natural hot springs pool. Explore nearby ghost towns. Tour soaring mountains by jeep. Photograph wildlife. Ride a horse. Mountain bike. Ski. Snowmobile. Ice skate. Or just meet our friendly folks, sample local cuisine and experience Ouray's many festivals.

Or give us a call. We're just an hour from Telluride. And a world away from the everyday.
