It is hard to put into words how fantastic this B&B is. Hilde & Rudy are lovely people and so very welcoming; we felt very comfortable in their home during our recent 3 night stay at the end of a 3 week stay in the USA. We stayed in the Romantic Rose suite, a large room with lovely personal touches... More

This July we made our first visit to the Sonnenhof B&B and we were ready to come back even before we left! From the morning greeting of beautiful hummingbirds and classical wake-up music to draw us towards a delicious breakfast, to an evening dip in the Jacuzzi tub and night sky full of stars (even some shooting stars!), we were...

We have stayed at many B&Bs and the Sonnenhof far out ranks all of them. Rudy and Hilde have built a beautiful home and the gardens are spectacular! We stayed for three nights and the breakfast each morning was excellent. We have never met more gracious and friendly inn keepers. We would highly recommend this most wonderful B&B and plan... More

The Sonnenhof is in a commanding position overlooking Mary's Lake and is every bit as quiet & peaceful as we had hoped. The grounds are teeming with wonderful wildlife and there's a good chance you'll encounter grazing elk within a few minutes' walk. It's also a very good spot for birdwatching. The house itself is well appointed and our room... More

Worth every penny. Amazing atmosphere provide by Hilde and Rudy. Be prepared for an incredible breakfast - you might be too stuffed to hike nearby RMNP! Amazing woodworking throughout house and grounds done by Rudy. Wildflowers just starting to appear in mid-June; likely incredible in July. Best B&B we have ever visited anywhere.

Excellent location with everything you would want in a BB. One of the best kept secrets. This is definitely a BB worth its value and more. Owners set a family and friends atmosphere that makes everyone feel welcomed. Sweet German / European flare to everyone that crosses their door steps.

The craftsmanship of the home and furniture are exceptional, all done by Rudy the host. Not to be outdone, Hilde prepares breakfasts that are gourmet! The gardens and landscaping make an ideal setting to just relax in the mountain air. The rooms are very comfortable with many personal decorative touches. Overall, Sonnenhof B&B is an excellent place in which to... More

My husband and I just had the most wonderful 2 night stay at the Sonnenhof B&B! Hilde and Rudy are delightful hosts, the house is set up as a B&B and all 3 rooms are very private, the setting is gorgeous, and the breakfasts are abundant and delicious. I love how it's located away from the bustling touristy town. Rudy... More

All the prior reviews are spot on. We have limited prior B&B experience, and it has been mixed at best. This changed everything, and I am afraid nothing in the future will ever match it. Spotless accomodations, incomparable breakfasts, heartachingly beautuful vistas, a backyard garden straight out of a fairy tale, wildlife browsing right past the porch, and the whispering... More

Our stay at the Sonnenhof B&B was beyond our wildest expectations! The hosts, Rudy and Hilde, were very professional and two of the kindest people we have met. Our room, the dining area, the gathering area and the whole place was immaculate and beautiful. Outside our room, was a small patio area where we enjoyed their beautiful gardens, the hummingbirds,...
