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

This is a lovely cozy Bed and Breakfast in a great location in Boulder. The breakfasts are great and food is made to order. Coffee and Tea are available all day long as well as baked goodies in the dining room. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. It is very quiet and private. We will definitely return.

All the B&B's in Boulder are nice. They all are unique. The Briar was very nice and warm on a very cold night. The hot ginger tea was perfect. The hot breakfast was eggs, toast, yogurt, and scones. It was yummy. The bed comfy. The hot shower was perfect. The end keepers very laid back and nice. Thank you from... More
