About Us

The family-owned AlpLily Inn offers modern lodging in the heart of historic Ouray, just steps from Main Street shops and restaurants. 


Enjoy a Colorado mountain escape during your stay at the AlpLily, where guest comfort and privacy are of the utmost importance. 


The inn is a classic Victorian home rich with Colorado history, located on the south end of Ouray right on Main Street. The home was originally built in 1890 and was the childhood home of Colorado’s 31st governor William Knous. Over the decades, it was a home to a nurse who worked at the miner’s hospital in the 1900s before becoming home to Mike and Jen Feeser and their two children. The neighboring building is also part of the inn. It houses 4 small apartments. It was built in 1889 to house miners for the Idorado Mining Company. 


The Feesers completely restored the main home themselves in 2015 before opening in January 2018 (just in time for the annual ice festival!). The family (including Bernese Mountain Dog, Oliver) live on-site. Jen is a teacher at Ouray School and Mike is a builder. It is their goal to accommodate your needs during your stay.  They are available via text or call and will return your message quickly if they are not immediately available. 

***We do not allow children under 12 years old. (We make exceptions for special circumstances. Please contact us personally with your request.)

****As of July 2019, AlpLily Inn is no longer operating as a bed and breakfast. In room coffee is offered in each guest suite. We recommend going to Artisan Bakery just a block and a half away for your favorite espresso  drink and light breakfast before your daily adventure. If you are in the mood for something a little heartier we recommend The Outlaw or CampBell's Kitchen. 


Jen and Mike look forward to hosting you during your stay in Ouray!
