This was our first stay at a B&B. Our first impression is that the old Victorian house
looks like a haunted house. We are the Inn’s only guests so we have no trouble finding
a parking space! Berthoud Inn is located right off a traffic circle in a residential area in
an old well-kept town. As far as we can tell, this is the only lodging in Berthoud. The
next nearest place is located in Loveland.
Berthoud Inn is clean, very quiet, and charming with classic elegance. Mark, a former
chef and owner of Berthoud Inn, is warm, friendly and accommodating. Upon arrival
we were greeted and shown around. Each one of the eight rooms is decorated in a
different theme with a private bath. The king bed room we stayed in is decorated in Art
Deco style and is about 400 square feet (??). The TV is a floor model and cannot be seen
from bed. There is no refrigerator / microwave in the room; however, cold soda is
available in a refrigerator found in the dining room. Clear Belgium blocks separate the
bathroom from the sleeping area and there is a blue light along the top of the Belgium
blocks which adds ambiance to the room. The bath has a pedestal sink, tile floor bath,
and a bathtub with shower. There is no individual temperature control for each
bedroom. There are a few candles in the room / bathroom. As far as we could tell,
there is no Internet connection. Breakfast is amazing and wonderful – fresh fruit with
light cream, freshly squeezed orange juice, ham, bacon, eggs, toast, sweet potato
pancakes, freshly baked apple crisp with ice cream, and delicious coffee. There is a
main table that seats six and two or three smaller tables that seat four.
Other room decors include French, Egyptian, Oriental, Frontier, Tropical, and Country. Berthoud Inn also has a separate unit (not inside the main house) that allows pets, has a full kitchen, washer, dryer, etc. This unit is often occupied by families with children or contractors working in the area.
Berthoud Inn is a relaxing, clean and nice place to stay; however, the lack of wireless Internet,
individually controlled heating / air conditioning, hot tub, room refrig and the length of time spent on breakfast is not our cup of tea. We like to relax in a hot tub at night, watch TV and then get up and run the next morning. Please don't confuse our not being B&B people with the quality and hospitality of Berthoud Inn. Those who enjoy B&B's will no doubt enjoy your stay.
Berthoud Inn would be a great place for a wedding, rehearsal dinner, shower, or other
type of party. The grounds were meticulously manicured and there is a dance floor and
place for a DJ / small band. Mark handles weddings all the time and the guests often
stay in the Inn. There is a bridal suite that has skylights, a high ceiling and a round
