We stayed here nearing the end of a 16 day 4300 mile driving trip that made a big loop from Arizona to Ohio and back. We decided to stay at more B&Bs on this trip to find the kind of unique experiences that B&Bs can provide. The Ambiance Inn and the town of Carbondale, CO were not a disappointment. The Inn is right in town and in easy walking distance of charming shops and restaurants.

Our room on the second floor was spacious and comfortable, and the downstairs living and dining rooms are very attractive and comfortable and provide a place for conversations among the guests. This is a strong point we seek in good B&Bs.

We found a good place for dinner at the Allegria restaurant where we enjoyed a braised roast of lamb. We saw several interesting restaurants in the area but we were only staying one night, so we had to pick just one. We weren't disappointed.

Norma served us and several other guests a wonderful breakfast that sent us on the road with full and happy stomachs. The house and grounds are quite unusual and special. I'll post some photos.

My wife and I decided to take advantage of a gift certificate we received for the Ambiance Inn Bed & Breakfast in Carbondale, CO to celebrate both Father's Day and our 57th Anniversary. We could not have been more surprised and pleased with the warm reception and hospitality given us. When we arrived, there was a note on the front door saying that our reservation had been upgraded. Our room was spacious and comfortable. To say that the breakfast, prepared by Norma, was "hearty" is an understatement! What a lovely experience, thanks to Norma and Bob. We give the Ambiance Inn B&B the highest marks for hospitality and comfort, and recommend a stay there whenever you're in the area.

Bob and Norma took incredible care of us for our anniversary. We stayed two nights, and it was an absolute delight. We loved the incredible breakfasts that were served and the gracious hospitality extended to us. We highly recommend this B & B if you are staying in the Carbondale area!

We loved this place. Our room was clean and charming with a large jacuzzi tub. I really liked that coffee and tea were always available in the upstairs lounge. Norma and Bob were very hospitable and can cook a mean breakfast - we had eggs, bacon, waffles, fruit, orange juice, coffee and tea.
There were interesting books and artwork throughout the house, and the attention to detail was outstanding. We highly recommend staying here when visiting Carbondale, which, like the Ambiance Inn, is quite charming. Mahalo Norma and Bob!

We just finished staying at this delightful B&B for 16 days while skiing in the Aspen area. This was our second consecutive year that we have stayed at the Ambiance Inn, and have thoroughly enjoyed each time. Norma cooks an outstanding breakfast each morning that fills you up until the middle of the afternoon. Both Bob and Norma do everything possible to make a stay with them a very pleasant experience. We wholeheartedly recommend staying the the Ambiance Inn if you are going to be doing anything from Glenwood Springs to Aspen. We look forward to staying with them again in 2015.

Room Tip: We really like the Aspen room as it is the largest of the rooms, and it works very well for longer stays.
