We booked a room at the Secret Garden at the last minute “walk-in” style and considered ourselves lucky to have the opportunity to stay in Sarah’s lovely B&B. Our room was huge, well-appointed and comfortable. Sarah made us feel at home right from the start and as others have mentioned she is the perfect balance of “caring host” and “come... More

Based on past experience we tend to view gushing reviews, particularly of bed and breakfasts, with a degree of caution. However, in this case they are well justified. The Secret Garden is well appointed, well positioned, and welcoming; a nicely maintained garden; a very pleasant outside deck; clean hot-tub; a 'happy hour'!! .. I could go on. We are always...

Needed to spend the night in Ouray and found Secret Garden. A cozy house, close to the main drag and the river, free parking, internet; the flowers and beautiful gardens made sitting on the porch most restful. Sara, our hostess, was most gracious--we arrived way early but she welcomed us in, gave us good tips on seeing Ouray, and made... More

Excellent, Great Breakfast, Comfortable Beds, beautiful gardens! Feels like you just came home! Sarah is very charming! The house has great art! We had the upstairs and we were very comfortable. We had a kitchenette upstairs and we were able to store our picnic food in the refrigerator.

We kind of dropped in on Sara and she was amazing. Gracious, helpful, she makes you feel right at home. Sara is a fantastic chef and excellent host. The cottage cheese lemon pancakes were incredible. I know we will be visiting again..and again.

Ouray is beautiful and this B&B is nestled amidst the beautiful mountains at the end of the street. It's quiet. The house is charming and roomy. My bed was heavenly; I fell asleep the moment my head hit the pillow. Sara not only runs the place--she is a caterer by profession and her breakfast is spectacular. Ask for her signature... More

My wife and I stayed with Sara at the Secret Garden BNB for Valentines Day 2015. Sara took great care of us and the other guests. The Provencal room was clean and had a great view of the surrounding mountains. Go stay at the Secret Garden in Ouray!

Loved the entire experience. Our room was so spacious and the accommodations were great. Sara is the perfect hostess. Secret Garden's location was within walking distance of the local restaurants and her recommendations were great. I would recommend Secret Garden to anyone looking for a romantic getaway.

My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate our one year anniversary. We loved this bed and breakfast and Sarah so much that we will back many more times. Great hospitality, comfortable beds, scrumptious breakfast, and a home that simply can't be beat!! Free happy hour and the hot tub were huge pluses. We can't thank Sarah enough for our... More
