This is definitely the best bed and breakfast experience we've ever had, especially for the price. My husband and I stayed the weekend in Glenwood Springs for my birthday.
One of my favorite things about this Best Kept Secret is that there are only two guest rooms on opposite ends of the house. We really felt like welcome guests and didn't have awkward mornings with loud overnight neighbors, if you get what I mean. We stayed in the Budoir, which is a little bedroom and a bathroom just down the hall with a sliding door that separates the Budoir area from the main dining room and living area. The bed was very cozy but not too hot and the pillows were very comfortable.
The location is pretty much perfect for hanging around town or having a base for hiking in Glenwood or Aspen (40 min drive). The house is right downtown in a residential area but it's only a five minute walk to the footbridge that will take you straight across the Colorado River and to the Hot Springs if you're into that sort of thing. (You definitely have to stop by Sacred Grounds on Grand Ave if you do walk--amazing sandwiches!) Plenty of parking.
David and Liza are very helpful, genuine people. David will school you on the history of Glenwood Springs (and water rights) if you let him--fair warning. Liza's breakfasts were healthy and hearty and you can definitely taste the love. Very welcoming family. Oh! David will also hook you up with Athletic Club passes to the Hot Springs and other local attractions.
We will most definitely be staying again! Apparently, this winter they will be open with discounted rates. Best Kept Secret would probable be the only reason I'd want to drive through the mountains in the winter.
