...and fond farewell to "Scottie"
The Inn's beloved Scotty passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 22, 2014, while on vacation with Vicki on the shore of Oregon. He had been feeling poorly for several days and his 14 years finally caught up with him.
His final resting place is a secluded spot at Cape Perpetua, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
A friend to many hundreds of guests and children, Scottie brought joy to the Inn and he will be missed.
The historic Bears Inn Bed and Breakfast
This historic landmark has continuously operated as a lodging facility since it’s
construction in 1928, with its quality and superior service recently recognized by the 2006 “Award
of Excellence” presented by the Bed and Breakfast Innkeepers of Colorado. The rustically elegant
decor, gorgeous views and warm hospitality will make you feel instantly welcomed and relaxed.
There are eleven uniquely appointed guest rooms; each with private baths, satellite TV, free WI-FI, and thick, luxurious robes. A cozy two-bedroom cabin complete with full kitchen and all the comforts of home is also available.
A romantic, gourmet candlelight breakfast is served each morning in the Great Room or you may
choose to dine out on one of our lovely decks, warmed by the gas log campfires and take in the
incredible continental divide views.
Innkeeper, Vicki Bock, has made extensive upgrades and improvements since she purchased the property in 2002. Some of the most recent
improvements are a beautiful waterfall and a flagstone patio behind the Inn.
The Inn now has three levels of patios and a garden. Private decks were added to the Garden and Safari rooms.
Summer breakfasts are served on the large covered deck.
Her attention to detail is evident throughout. Vicki, an
experienced world traveler and successful career woman, has added a flare
of elegance to the existing Inn by sharing her love for antiques and treasures
from around the world. Whether soaking in the outdoor hot tub, enjoying the
beautiful Rocky Mountain views, or lounging in the Great Room in front of the
original rock fireplace, one thing is for certain at the Bears Inn: you can relax,
reflect and enjoy life.
