We have been staying in B&B's for over 30 yrs. and thought the description on TripAdvisor and the Secret Garden website fit us, especially since we were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. Upon arriving on Thursday it became apparent that Sara, the owner/chef was not feeling well physically and emotionally. We were sympathetic to learn that she was dealing with... More

I am truly sorry and deeply regretful that I was not at the top of my game the first morning of your stay. I apologize that I appeared rude to your kind and generous husband. I remember at that the moment of the coffee assistance he offered I was worried that I would be perceived as not doing my job... More

My wife and I were really glad we decided to stay at the Secret Garden. The views were great. It was right by the river. We had the jacuzzi all to ourselves, and the bed was super comfortable! Believe me--I'm a pillow guy, and I left my own in the car because theirs were so soft yet supportive! The house... More

What a great gem in Ouray, CO. Sara, the owner/host of this cozy and delightful B&B is great. She also own a catering business so her breakfast was always delicious. If you are looking for a home-like clean environment...with a hot-tub, this is the place for you!

Sara is an excellent hostess. She is affable, knowledgeable about Ouray, gracious, and accommodating. she is also really fun to talk to over breakfast. The house is IMMACULATE and spacious. There are 5 rooms in the house, and we stayed in one of the smaller rooms, which had a queen memory foam bed. we love that she tries to use... More

We stayed for a Friday night. Sara was delightful and gave us good advice on what to do while we were in town. Breakfast was wonderful. The room was great, probably the most comfortable sheets I've ever slept on! I would definitely recommend The Secret Garden to others!

The Secret Garden was a lovely place to hold a fund-raiser event. Sara and her staff served a delicious luncheon for 30 guests and we received many, many compliments for the Austrian menu food. We are grateful to have such a quality caterer in our small town -- thank you!

This sweet B&B is a gem. The rooms are well appointed. The beds and linens are excellent. Our room had a great view of the morning sunrise on the mountain. Best of all were the homemade breakfasts that Sara makes. She made our stay in Ouray special.

After a long drive from Boulder, what a pleasure to stay at Secret Garden for three nights and experience excellent hospitality, delicious food, comfort and charming accommodations. Sara, the proprietor/owner, could not have been more welcoming and did all in her power to make sure we had a lovely and enjoyable place to stay while attending some events in Ouray.... More

From the rave reviews, we probably had higher than normal expectations. We've stayed at 30+ BnB's and this one just missed the mark for us. The location is ideal for exploring the area and Sarah is very friendly. This just wasn't our type of BnB, but others may love this personal, almost family-like atmosphere. This experience made us feel like... More

This was our first trip to southwest Colorado. We stayed in Ouray at Secret Garden for three nights in October 2013. Secret Garden is a beautiful place to stay to enjoy Ouray.
