I had one night only last week during my Rockies trip (wish I had stayed longer) - what a charming B&B very comfortable, large rooms, very comfortably furnished - We were 5 adults - and had one large room on the 1st floor 'the Purcell room" (the room has a huge bed and a pull out sofa bed (to a full double size) with sliding doors so we could have privacy even though we were sharing a room ) This room had a private washroom at the entrance with a skylight. Very cheery and bright atmosphere .
My friends had a room downstairs at the lower level which was called the Wildflower - which had a lounge and sitting area with TV, DVD, tables & basic kitchen amenities. So very comfortable - we sat here and shared a bottle of wine late night.
The hosts Stan & Olive were so charming & helpful and warm and friendly - which is a very important factor in any B&B. The breakfast served by them was talked about by us till the end of the trip ! - warm freshly baked scones (raspberry & Blueberry) fresh oatmeal pancakes with syrup strawberries & whipped cream sausages, jams, juices, eggs, fresh coffee . Olive woke early to prepare this feast for us. We were so full we couldnt possibly eat anymore and Olive was so kind to pack some more scones for us to eat on our long journey ahead. When we opened our packed scones were also found cutlery, small packets of butter - so very thoughtful of them.
Thank you Stan & Olive again.
