My son had just moved to the area, and I didn't want to stay with him, or stay in a cookie-cutter chain hotel. From the moment we entered the home, we felt a sense of calmness. The people are wonderful, the area is funky, and I had a wonderful visit.

This was our second visit to the Briar Rose. We stayed one night so we could enjoy Boulder along with the Shakespeare Festival. From the front gate you can easily walk to Pearl Street or the Boulder Creek. Even with road construction on Arapahoe Avenue there lies a wonderful garden just on the other side of a fence that welcomes... More

This is one of the best B&Bs it has been our pleasure to stay at. We found it when we were visiting Boulder a few years ago and have been looking forward to returning. Our second stay was all that we had hoped for. The rooms are lovely (beds great!) and the common areas are inviting. Breakfast is wonderful with... More

This is a cute B&B in Boulder that is within walking distance of the shopping/dining of Pearl St. The room was nice. The grounds weren't as cute as many other B&B's we've stayed in but there was plenty of seating in various areas to enjoy the outside. The breakfast in the morning was really good. As always, my favorite part... More

My husband and I stayed at the Briar Rose and it was the perfect setting for our one night in Boulder. Aside from the relatively close proximity to Pearl Street, Artist's Point, and Avery Brewing company, the staff and venue itself was wonderful. We stayed in the Huron Room which I believe was just recently updated. The room is at... More

My husband and I just returned from our 10th Wedding Anniversary trip to Boulder. We were given our stay as a gift from my family and it was perfect. The staff was warm and friendly and our room was very homey with a great rainfall shower. I think I probably gained 5 lbs eating the butter shortbread cookies (available 24/7),... More

This is a very comfortable, relaxed B&B conveniently located in Boulder. What stands out are the staff and the food -- friendly young people who cook good food! The breakfasts were very good, and it was a treat to have cookies and other baked goods out for snacking all the time. I was amazed how many people showed up at... More

My wife and I have enjoyed a number of stays at The Briar Rose Bed and Breakfast. We chose it the first time as an Anniversary get-away, and we liked it totally from moment we entered. Friendly personnel greeted us. Our reservation was in order, and the tea and cookies were superb, served in our cozy, comfortable, spacious room. We... More

I am a flight attendant and stay at hotels at least 15 nights a month so I know a good place to stay when I see it... And Briar Rose did not disappoint! Yes, the rooms have old furniture and checking in in the kitchen is not standard but the room was super clean, the bed was better than at... More
