Reviewed 21 August 2012

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend wedding in early June, and we were not disappointed with our accommodations. I would echo the previous sentiments about the grounds, beautifully manicured, fine attention to detail, and the innkeepers , Rick and Elizabeth, certainly make you feel as if you are a guest in their home, by offering sightseeing recommendations, and tailoring breakfasts, if you have an early flight. We stayed in the serenity Ron, which was wonderful,and features a nice sized jacuzzi, and flat screen tv. I cannot say enough about Elizabeth's homemade pastries, and cookies. She is wonderfully accommodating, so let her or Rick know up front if you have any special requests. Even though we stayed for only a weekend, and it was a whirlwind trip, the accommodations and stay was relaxing and when we return to golden, we will be staying here again. It's location is central to everything in downtown golden, so if you are looking for a place that is close and charming, look no further.

Room Tip: Serenity is the room if you prefer a jacuzzi!

This was our second stay here and it was just as wonderful as the first! Great location; quiet, lovely rooms; great breakfast and terrific hosts. I always enjoy being able to sit in the front garden and watch the world go by. Home made cookies are the best!

It's clean, comfortable, convenient, well-run, just a perfect home away from home when we stayed in Golden on a recent long weekend getaway.
They let us check in a couple hours early. They accommodated a request for an early breakfast on the morning of our departure for the airport. They asked what our favorite cookie was (coconut macaroon) and made them.
We came back late from Neil Young and Crazy Horse concert at Red Rocks, and there were the macaroons under glass in self-service snack and coffee area. The living room and dining area were roomy and inviting. Breakfast was excellent and included healthier options such as chicken sausage with a luscious lemon custard french toast.
Our room (Red Rocks Room) was nicely furnished and very comfy, they had an extensive collection of DVDs. A forward-looking environmental impact policy was evident in the reusable water bottles, flourescent light bulbs and other touches. Also noteworthy was the bathtub in our room. It was so long, an NBA player could take a good bath in it. Just very good, personalized service and great attention to detail.
The Dove Inn sits right across the street from one of the better ethnic restaurants in town, Thai Gold, and half a block from old-town Golden's main thoroughfare, Washington Street. Made it a breeze to walk to shopping, restaurants, coffee bars, bar bars, etc.

We only stayed one night here and I was sad to go. The house is large and tastefully decorated. We stayed in the downstairs room which was nice as we didn't have to go up all the stairs to the other rooms. Our room was lovely. To note- the air conditioning is on a wall switch and we didn't know that, so we woke up the innkeeper because we thought a fuse had blown. We felt really bad about this - so sorry Elizabeth. The innkeeper, Elizabeth, was super friendly and helpful. She even loaned us umbrellas as it was raining. Guests can use a shared fridge if needed. Coffee, tea, and snacks (fruit, cookies) are always available. Breakfast was tasty. This place is in walking distance of downtown- a neat walk. The Coors brewery is also close. Also to note - We chose this place because it was close to the red rocks area. It is, maybe a 10-15 minute drive. Highly recommend this place.

The Dove Inn is conveniently located near downtown historic Golden, Colorado. Of all the B&Bs we've stayed at over the decades (about 200), this is in the top 10%!

Like most B&Bs, it has historic charm, and it offers a wonderful breakfast (better than most). But at the Dove Inn, everything works! The shower, the hair dryer, the toilet, the windows, the lamps, the key, the TV, the overhead fan, the air conditioner, etc. This is rare in our experience.

The room was well appointed, candies in a bowl, instructions, bower window with comfortable chair, choice of pillows, lots of light if desired. Our hosts were "inn sitters" for the owners, but they were exceedingly competent and friendly and helpful. Did I mention homemade cookies in the parlor with current newspapers and dining menus?

The two drawbacks we noticed were that there is no on-site parking (although street parking is usually available right in front of the inn) and the window air conditioner had trouble keeping up with the unusual heat wave that affected Colorado this year so that the noise was not pleasant through the night.

We would go back again and again if we lived in Colorado, and even the price was attractively low!

Room Tip: We had a corner suite, the other rooms looked good also.

This was our second time staying at the Dove Inn and the first with the new owners. Golden is still a great location, a nice quite town with some interesting shops and a few good restaurants and is a great gateway to the Rockies as well as everything else Denver has to offer. The Inn itself if a great place to stay with the rooms clean and well appointed. Elizabeth the innkeeper made us feel extremely welcome and cooked lovely breakfasts.
