Best Kept Secret B & B

Reviewed 1 October 2012

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.

Liza and David have created an all-around great place to stay. Their home is beautiful, inside and out. The location is perfect. We brought our bikes and could bike to just about anywhere in town. Liza and David were extremely accommodating- anything we needed or any questions we had, they were there! And the breakfasts were absolutely delicious! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Small B&B with excellent hosts. Breakfast was awesome and the grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed sitting n the front porch and watching the world go by as much as soaking in the hot springs and hiking around town. Thanks David and Liza!

Liza and David do a wonderful job of making you feel at home. The B&B is perfectly located in Glenwood springs, and the gardens are beautiful. Great home, great breakfasts, and great company and information!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for suggestions on things to do. This couple has a wealth of information!

We spent three nights at this lovely bed and breakfast. The location is ideal for doing anything in town - just a short walk to great restaurants, shopping and the hot springs. We frequent B&Bs when traveling and David and Liza have lovingly created an inviting and relaxing home nestled in an absolutely beautiful garden setting complete with a water fountain. We enjoyed reading on the front porch in the late afternoon following a busy day of golf or sightseeing. David is a wealth of knowledge concerning the area, and Liza makes the most delicious breakfasts! We will definately be back!

We just spent one night in this nice B&B, but we won't forget it. Specially the tasty and rich breakfast. We were also glad to get some inputs from David about what to do and where we could go. He knows a lot about the area.

Great location with in walking distance to central downtown. Liza and David were very informative, nice and engaging. Liza's breakfast was tasty and plentiful! The B & B is a return trip for sure. We can't wait to see the finished deck. The gardens are very inviting. Would recommend staying here if you want a quiet environment. They provide bikes for free, not tub in back, water bottle use, and free wifi. What else could you ask for? :)
