I was doing a Bon Buddhist meditation retreat with Chamma Ling in Crestone when I stayed at the Silver Star. I had a great and relaxing time in Sue's home. The house is very nice and has a elevated deck that wraps around one whole side of the home. Sue was very kind and had a very nice room set... More

We had never been to Crestone before, so our 4-night reservation at the Silver Star--based on the web site photos and availability over the Labor Day weekend--seemed a bit of a gamble. We were pleasantly surprised by the location (high above the town with splendid valley and mountain views) and the cleanliness of the B&B. Since we visited Crestone mainly... More

Penny Powell. I stayed at the Silver Star Bed and Breakfast Retreat Center. What a wonderful experience! The host is such a kind, gentle person who is ready to do anything she can to make your stay most enjoyable. The views from her deck are unbelievably beautiful and so much wildlife. Humming birds, rabbits, squirrels, deer, chipmunks, and many different... More

I just got back from staying at a wonderful B&B retreat center in Crestone Colorado called Silver Star B&B. It was such a wonderful experience. The rooms were really comfortable, clean and had amazing views of the mountains. The owner went out of her way to make our stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible. She even made food for...

I had never been to Crestone before and was pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a B&B on the slopes of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The simple luxury of the place is a little reminiscent of the accomodations offered by Francis Ford Coppola in Belize and Guatemala. The new owners have done everything to make a person's stay...

It was my first time being in Crestone, Co. The natural environment is beyond expectation, however it is not your traditional city with an urban downtown. I was very fortunate to stay at this B&B: the building has a great feel of a home and the host was genuinely hospitable. I stayed here during a retreat and it was a... More

A friend recommended this place and I loved it! The owner was kind and friendly. The deck had one of the best views imaginable. Everything was clean and nicely organized. I agree with some of the reviews here that a little more help with breakfast would have been appreciated, especially as I was not familiar with where things in the... More

Thank you for your review. I like to give my guest a lot of freedom in the kitchen . I allow my guest to use the kitchen all day to make a snack ,soup, or sandwich so it's good to let you get familiar with what is available. I will be sure to make myself more available in the am.... More

This location, although a little tricky to find if not familiar with the area, was well worth the trip. The map fooled me, though, it is a little farther "up the hill" then I expected. The slightly bumpy dirt road wasn't a problem for my rented Chevy Impala. This place is marvelous for meditation, prayer, or taking a nap! If... More

This place was bought up by another owner this Spring (2011) and it shouldn't even be called the Bed & Breakfast!! I would call this place a "youth HOSTEL". The place only had two bathrooms between 6 people and the host didn't even cook any breakfast; it was self-service and make your own toast type of place. The host set... More

We were a last-minute booking -- supposed to go for 2 nights, but had a late change of plans to only one. Our original B&B had a 2-night minimum, so recommended we call Sue at the Silver Star. Sue handled our booking inquiry promptly, and welcomed us to her immaculate home B&B just a few days later. The views from... More
