“Perfect setting, perfect stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2007

While our stay in Steamboat was short, the hospitality of Cindy and Bob at the Mariposa made us wish that we could stay for weeks! This cozy B&B is in a perfect setting at the "end of the road"....but within short distance to the hot springs, downtown, and skiing. We stayed in the Monarch Room with the much appreciated jetted tub and fireplace. The common areas for relaxing are comfortable with the "sunroom" having a great woodsy view. The atmosphere is everything you expect of a Rocky Mtn cottage...comfortable, cozy, yet modern.

A breakfast of individual egg strata, fruit & yogurt cup, sausage and sumptuous apple coffee cake started our day out right. As we chatted with Cindy and Bob during breakfast, the ease of the conversation made us feel as though we had known them for years!

We would heartily recommend this bed & breakfast inn; we'll be back in the future with our entire family!

From Susan and Bob:

We spent a 2 day honeymoon in the Monarch Room at the Mariposa. The room and the overall facilities were outstanding, and far exceed our expectations. The B&B is warm and welcoming, clean and well-kept.

The mild construction was done only during late morning, daytime. It was not an issue and was not noticed. We appreciate the ongoing care made to make the Mariposa a first rate facility.

We saw and talked to our hosts Bob and Cindy. They were warm, hospital, knowledgeable and informative of the Steamboat area, and willing to converse. Their presence was appreciated, but not overbearing.

The sit-down breakfast was a joyful occasion in that the food was outstanding, diverse, tasty and properly portioned. We enjoyed the company of the other guests. Bob and Cindy helped make us comfortable, that made for lively discussions.

We also appreciated the quiet of the place, and the privacy therein. Despite the stormy evening weather at the time of our visit, we were made to feel safe and comfortable within the Mariposa.

One regret: that we couldn't stay longer. One thing we are doing: recommending this place to as many people as possible.

We wanted to have a romantic getaway from our busy life with 4 kids and that is exactly what we got! We stayed in the Monarch room which was very cozy and comfortable. Bob and Cindy were very nice and breakfast was awesome! They had many ideas of things for us to do and we just had the best time.We will definatley be coming back and would highly recommend this B&B!

We had a absolutely fantastic stay at the Mariposa! The construction was well worth the trouble, making it even more perfect for a relaxing weekend! Bob and Cindy were excellent hosts, making our stay
delightful and welcoming. The breakfasts were what I would want to wake up to every day-- absolutely an amazing start. I wish my husband
could cook like Bob! Cindy and Bob gave great recommendations for dining out in Steamboat. I would have been lost without them.

We look forward to making the Mariposa an annual destination, as we have invited the rest of the family for our next tip.

Thanks again!

Upon looking up from the directions, we had no idea we were in the correct place. The pictures of the outside of the building look nothing like the pictures on the current website. There was no visible sign welcoming guests, construction materials were in the driveway along with a port o john. We only realized we were in the right place after recognizing the hosts' names on the building permit. (The B&B sign was on the ground). The hosts did not divulge this construction project to us when the reservations were made. Staying in a construction zone is not our idea of a romantic getaway. No one greeted us and there were no signs to tell guests where to go to find someone. We finally found Cindy when I went into the house behind the lodge and called out.

Our room, Patty’s Room, had an internet description of "be lulled to sleep with the sound of Soda Creek outside your window". It was not next to Soda Creek, in fact, we did not hear Soda Creek. Instead we heard the creaking sounds of the roof expanding and contracting all night long. At 7:15 a.m. we awoke to breakfast being made and shoes clopping on the floor - not pleasant or considerate of guests trying sleep before an 8:00 a.m. breakfast - a bit early compared to other B&B's. There is no A/C (be prepared if you have allergies), and breakfast was ok – nothing gourmet. Bob was very friendly at breakfast, but it was the first time we ever saw him. Our entire visit we felt like an afterthought - right down to finding the credit card slip under a salt and pepper shaker above the kitchen sink. We signed and left without anyone seeming to notice or care about our stay. We have stayed at numerous B&B's, and unfortunately, we would not recommend this one.

  • Liked — Could walk to main street
  • Disliked — Unfriendly hosts, no signs, high density housing across the street, chemical smell in the air

We are very sorry this guest came at a time that our construction was at it's worst. We are finishing up now and it has turned out even better than we hoped. I hope these unhappy guests will give us another try...we think you will be pleased with the results.

I had the distinct pleasure to stay in the Mariposa recently and have nothing but the highest praise for my time spent there. Really liked the decor and felt immediately at home no matter where in the house I was at. The kitchen table made of timber was by far my favorite feature of the rustic, southwest theme. Comfortable bed, great breakfast, and lovely hosts in Bob and Cindy Maddox. Nothing but great things to say about my stay.

We recommend this place. Why? First, the three, count them - three wood / gas stoves. And stay in the master suite...very cozy. Our gregarious hosts Bob and Cindy cooked up two delicious breakfasts, shared conversation, and invited us over to play the grand piano in their beautifully-remodeled home next door. Bob pointed us to several scrumptious restaurants and offered to lend us bicycles, which we were too busy to use. They even provided towels to take up to Strawberry hot springs - be sure to bring a flashlight if you plan to arrive after dark. If you find yourself in Steamboat on a rainy spring day, take the umbrella and stroll for half an hour along the quaint string of hot springs at the west end of town starting near the Art Depot. Play cards at Off the Beaten Track bookstore cafe. Then head back to Mariposa, curl up with a book for several cozy hours in the glassed-in back porch, and watch the rain roll down the windows and spill into the beaver pond and stream out back. We'll return!
