“Perfect B&B Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

The Jewel is a B&B done just right! The house was charming and perfectly decorated and landscaped. Breakfast was delicious -- fruit parfaits, waffles, eggs Benedict - all exquisitely prepared.

The owners expertly balanced warmth, helpfulness, and availability with staying out of the way and letting you feel like the space was yours. We had everything we needed in the room, including free wi-fi, and didn't have to track down the owners to ask for anything extra.

The house is just a few blocks from Main St., making it very easy to walk to shops and restaurants, and not much further to the river beyond that. This was a superb B&B experience, and I would highly recommend a stay here.

Simply stated, this is the place to stay if you're in the Canon City area. My boyfriend and I were very pleased with our experience and the Bed & Breakfast far exceeded our expectations. The rooms were very clean and the keeper, Michelle, was extremely personable and accommodating. The breakfasts were amazing! Michelle made us pecan Belgium waffles, eggs Benedict, and homemade fruit parfait. I'd recommend this Bed & Breakfast if you're planning on whitewater rafting or ziplining in this region. ***Of note, the hotels and motels in the area are similarly priced but there is no way that they are as memorable and neat as this place. For $109, you get a clean, comfortable room***

This was our third time staying at Jewel of the Canyons. We were surprised to learn that the B&B was under new ownership, but were happy to find how friendly and helpful the new owners are. They have made some changes to the B&B which I think have improved its appearance somewhat, and even though I was worried the breakfast that I had grown to love that was prepared by the previous owners was going to be replaced with something less than delicious, I had no need for concern. The breakfast is definitely different than what we used to get, but it was still great nonetheless. The rooms are all very clean and comfortable and I still consider this the only place to stay when in Canon City.

New owners at Jewel of the Canyons Bed and Breakfast were very accommodating and friendly. The rooms were clean. the beds comfortable.The breakfasts were delicious and filling! We enjoyed sitting on the large front porch and enjoyed the pretty garden with water feature in the evenings. The B&B is located conveniently close to many attractions in town. It was the perfect place to get together with my sister and my two adult daughters. There are plenty of things to do in Canon and the surrounding area. We really enjoyed conversations with the other guests during breakfast at the communal table each morning, We highly recommend this place as it truly is a Jewel!

We stayed here at The Jewel for three nights and couldn't have had better care and hospitality anywhere. Michelle and Brian recently took over this B & B and they will excel. It is as if Michelle was born to look after you and be your friend. Her cooking is wonderful and they both took the time to share their story with us and to listen and be interested in our story.
Their residence is a beautifully cared for place and the front porch and upstairs verandah are delightful places to sit and mull over the day. We wouldn't hesitate to return to this wonderful Jewel of the Canyons.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was simply delightful. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted with a smile and a plate of scrumptious chocolate chip cookies and brownies. The gardens were very well maintained and provided a relaxing atmosphere while we sat on the front porch. The rooms were cozy and elegant. The owners just took over in may of 2013 and are doing a fabulous job!! Breakfast was outstanding both days (eggs bennedict and then pecan belgian waffles--yum, yum!) We enjoyed the company of the owners, as they really took the time to sit and talk to us and make us feel at home. Its always refreshing to know there is a spot to return to with the right accommodations, atmosphere, and attitude. Thanks so much to Brian and Michelle for a great trip!!

Room Tip: The Queens Room looks to be the best, as it is large and has an attatched bathroom

Great accommodations & outstanding breakfast in a perfect location. Rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. Decor and furnishings throughout make this a very unique B & B. Less than a 10 min walk to Le Petit Chablis and several other bars/restaurants or 15 mins to the Royal Gorge train depot. This is THE place to stay if planning a night or 2 in this nice little town.
