This was my first and only bed and breakfast experience. The man who owns the hotel is friendly and welcoming. His wife is more reserved but polite. It is a small Victorian bungalow. Quiet, comfortable and within walking distance to downtown. For those of you into this type of option, you should be happy.

Beautiful old home, nice location, gracious hosts. What more could you ask for? How about a million things to do and see within a hour or two of there. And a home cooked full breakfast. We will be back.

We were going to a concert at Red Rocks and we needed a local hotel. This B&B is only 6miles from Red Rocks. Even thought is B&B is in an older house the room had the charm of old, but the bathroom was modern. It was a comfortable room and bed. The location was an easy walk to the center... More

Traveling to Denver for a conference, we decided to stay in Golden a few days beforehand. The Silk Pincushion had vacancy and good reviews here on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. We stayed in the carriage house which is separate from the main house above a garage sewing studio which was very private and quiet. The efficiency apartment... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights in the carriage house room, and were very pleased. Judy and Dennis make the perfect hosts. The room was spacious, quiet and the bed comfortable. On the negative side - the air conditioner only marginally worked well enough to keep the bed side of the large room cool during the hot summer day.... More

I stayed for a week in the carriage house while working in nearby Wheat Ridge. Golden is the perfect western gold rush town and the Silk pincushion provides the perfect way to experience it. Judy and Dennis were amazingly welcoming and went out of their way to look after me and I loved hearing their stories and chatting with the... More

The quilts are beautiful. The Victorian furniture is perfect in the victorian house. The porcelain dolls are big. The house is nicely decorated for Christmas. The pretty sleigh bed was comfortable. The breakfast was yummy. The inkeepers are nice. Thank you Rita Bennett and Steve Nordstrom from Westminster Colorado

My husband and I rented the carriage house during a trip to Golden for surgery. We needed a quiet place for recovery and this was perfect. Since it isn't attached to the house we could listen to the radio or talk without worry of disturbing other guests. It was like having our own apartment. There is a small kitchen, which... More

I stayed by myself in the Green Room for 3 nights. The location is great and Judy and Dennis are incredibly warm and welcoming. The highlight for my stay at the Silk Pincushion was breakfast every morning with Judy, Dennis and the other B & B guests. Judy is a fantastic cook making something new most mornings.....gingerbread pancakes, sausage &... More
