“Absolutely PERFECT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2008

Without a doubt, this was THE best night we have spent on our cross-country trip so far. The room was spotless, the bed was comfy and the host and hostess, Lyn and Wendy, were extremely accommodating. Breakfast was outstanding! It is within walking distance to the center of the small town of Canon City where we spent a delightful evening at McClellans Pub. It's a short 5 minute drive to the Royal Gorge RR, a must-do experience if you are in that part of Colorado.

  • Liked — the cleanliness of the room and the breakfast the next morning
  • Disliked — We could not get an internet connection but that was not important at all.

Everything was beautiful, clean and quiet. Everyone was very nice and super accommodating. Breakfast was over the top! We had a fabulous stay and will come back to the "Jewel..." any time our travels take us back this way in the future.

Lyn & Wendy were wonderful, accomodating hosts! We travel on motorcycles and they even gave up their car port for us to park in. The meals could not have been better. If we go back to Canon City we would not even consider another place to stay. Definitely would do again!

This place was a gorgeous victorian home, truly the "Jewel of the Canyons". The hosts were probably some of the nicest people I've ever met. We stayed in the Red Rocks room which was just the right size for two people with a great bathroom and a adjacent private TV room. Food was top notch- I LOVE their hasbrown casserole.

Great neighborhood, great price, great people. Stop looking, go there.

If I can find something else to do in Canyon city I will be returning.

My husband and I had such a great time at Jewel of the Canyons B&B. Beautiful home, very friendly owners, lovely gardens and AMAZING breakfast!

It is located within walking distance to downtown but is on a quiet street.

We thought that their website was very helpful with photos and it was easy to make a reservation online.

The Jewel of the Canyons was the perfect place to stay. It was clean, private, air conditioned and very comfortable. The owners were perfectly hospitable and the breakfast was wonderful. We would definitely recommend the Jewel of the Canyons highly and would stay there again if we return to the area. It is perfectly situated for the Royal Gorge Railroad, the Royal Gorge and the rafting in the area. We are very particular with regard to cleanliness and we were very satisfied.

My wife and I stayed at The Jewel of the Canyon one night on a hot day in July, when we arrived our room was cool, and we were welcomed with brownies. The Jewel has wireless internet access and cable television access. The decor was charming and the breakfast was truly gourmet. This is one great place to stay.
