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

We had a lovely time at Secret Garden. Our room was large and beautifully furnished. Sarah, our hostess, gave us a delicious breakfast each morning. She was very informative about Ouray and we really enjoyed her company. Don't miss staying here.

Sara's Secret Garden provided the perfect spot for our side trip to Ouray. We found the Secret Garden on the internet while looking for a place to accommodate seven old college friends who came together for a friend's wedding in Colorado Springs. The house worked perfect for three couples plus one. The location and setting were excellently situated to accommodate... More

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
