Visiting Ouray

Whether you want to climb a fourteener or stroll through town, Ouray truly offers something for everyone. Mike and Jen have lived in southwest Colorado for more than a decade and can give you the inside scoop on what to do during your stay.

Just five minutes from the Ouray Ice Park and Via Ferrata, guests at AlpLily are a short walk from world-class ice climbing. The inn offers off-street parking and discounts for registered ice park members.


Visit in summer for world-class Jeeping, hiking, biking, rock climbing, or come in winter for ice climbing, skiing, ice skating and sledding. Just a five-minute walk from the Ouray Ice Park, AlpLily offers a comfortable stay for climbers and spectators alike.


AlpLily is a two-minute drive to Camp Bird Road, the gateway to Imogene Pass and part of Ouray Jeep Jamboree. Located on the south end of Main Street, the inn is conveniently located on the way back into Ouray from Yankee Boy Basin and other popular hiking destinations.


The inn is a one-minute drive from the Ouray Community Center and is walkable to all of Main Street’s fantastic restaurants and unique shops, open year-round. After your perfect Ouray day, enjoy a soak in the world-famous Ouray Hot Springs, a four-minute drive from your lodging. The AlpLily is also a short walk away from Box Canon Park, the Ouray Perimeter Trail, and the Ouray Alchemist Museum.


The AlpLily is also an affordable lodging option for those visiting Telluride for festivals or running the annual Hardrock 100.
