“I said, "I do!" here and I really do love it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

If you're looking for a less traditional venue for your wedding, I'd totally recommend this place. We opted for an evening wedding, and spreading candlelight and Christmas lights throughout the first floor and down the staircase made for an incredibly intimate yet festive feel to our occasion. The third floor ballroom is adequate and a great venue for the reception. It's all perfect for up to 100 guests, though 80 or less will fit far more comfortably than we squeezed in there.

We also had the Honeymoon Suite overnight which was elegant and restful. And the morning breakfast brought to our door in a wicker basket? Heavenly, and the perfect way to start our first morning as man and wife!

We returned a year later for our anniversary evening, staying in a different room, and enjoyed it once again.

They also have gardens surrounding the house if you opt for an outdoor event.

This is the most beautiful mansion ever and such an amazing B&B. Walter and Julie are SOOO nice and the breakfast is incredible. We had stuffed french toast and it was about the best breakfast we've ever had! The rooms are so comfy and the dinner show is so much fun!!! When you are in Denver this is THE PLACE to stay!!!!

Thanks TChristy!

It's a thrill to know we're doing a great job here at the Lumber Baron, and especially nice because we get to know our guests personally. We loved having you join in our Murder Mystery Dinner- fun-loving folks like yourselves seem to revel in our style of humor! Both you and your lovely wife are always welcome at the Lumber Baron- your multiple visits have enhanced our experience as Innkeepers. It's so nice to know that sometimes, among the thousands of travelers through our doors, that a few we can still today call friends. A toast to your next visit!

We stayed in the Anniversary Suite, complete with jacuzzi tub and huge TV and IPad. It was immaculate. The breakfast delicious. Gracious, charming host (Walter) and lovely garden.

I love this place! It's truly a historic B&B with ghosts and all. It's featured in "Colorado's Most Haunted, A Ghostly Guide to the Rocky Mountain State." Check it out for yourself, you won't be disappointed!!

My husband and I try to get away each year to celebrate our anniversary to a B&B in the mountains....but saw the Living Social special and decided to save the gas money and stay in Denver since we live in the burbs and don't get downtown much. The owner was quick to respond to my emails to book our room and I loved that there were no surprises or hidden fees (I sometimes am leery of those "too good to be true" discount specials!)

We started the day with lunch and sightseeing on the 16th street mall then checked into our room around 4. I LOVE old style architecture and decor and was not disappointed! The Inn is beautiful! Right down to the creaking floors! This is an old house so of course it is going to look weathered and worn - if you don't like that style then you will probably not be happy. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite. It was amazing! The bed was beautiful and comfortable, the room was clean and organized, the jacuzzi tub was so relaxing, and the HUGE flat screen TV and complimentary ipad were nice touches!

We attended the Shakespear Murder Mystery Dinner. It was hilarious! But I have to admit that at first I wasn't sure if it was something I was going to like and I almost suggested to my husband that we skip out and go relax in our room. So glad we stayed because it was so much fun! We always do the same old date night - dinner and a movie - and it was so fun to do something new and different! The food was yummy and the actors were the best. They had a young man taking pics throughout the evening - which I assumed you would have to pay for after - but was pleasantly surprised to learn they post them online for free for you to download! Most places will squeeze a buck out of you anyway they can so was impressed to see they made the pics available at no charge.

The next morning we had breakfast in our room - delicious warm muffins and fresh fruit - and then headed downstairs for a couples massage. We had a chance to chat with Walter and another couple that were eating breakfast. I love meeting new people and enjoyed hearing about the Inn's history from Walter who was happy to chat and answer any of our questions.

The couples massage was a great end to a perfect getaway! Thank you Walter for a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite and loved it! As we were leaving the gentleman cleaning the rooms...

This place was very cool. Every room is very different and the whole place just feels like a warm cozy mansion. The magic cabaret show w/ Dave Elsten was a blast. Highly recommended.
