“Soooo Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

My 2 daughters, granddaughter and I stayed with Eliza and Dave in their lovely, comfortable home and we truly had a wonderful time. They went above and beyond in so many ways to make us comfortable and pampered. Eliza's Delicious breakfast served beautifully was excellent both mornings. Dave is a treasure trove of local history and was so kind to my granddaughter. We will return! No doubt!

If there were 6 stars in the rating system, this B&B would get 6+++!! Not only do you get TOTALLY pampered by David and Eliza, you get to experience their truly AMAZING gardens as well!! The landscape and variety of flowers is almost worth the trip alone but then throw in the fact you can walk to almost anywhere from their location and wow! - you simply have it made!!! My family absolutely appreciated all the 'little' touches that they put into everything. My only regret is not staying longer:)

I would and will recommend the Best Kept Secret B&B to anyone and definitely plan to return as well!

Room Tip: Both rooms are excellent and both have private baths for use which is a big plus.

Green Features: 110% top-notch! I personally recycle anything and everything and it was obvious they do as well. Kudos!!

My friend and I stayed in the Boudoir room and loved it! It's cozy, but with the hallway and big bathroom, gives you more than enough space. Eliza and David were great hosts, and you can't beat the location. You can walk to town in about two minutes! Highly recommmend!

Room Tip: Boudoir is bigger than the Study.

My beautiful bride and I spent 4 nights at this bed and breakfast. David was out of town that week, but Eliza made us feel welcome and went above and beyond our expectations in preparing our breakfast and making sure we had everything we needed. We had all the space we wanted and all the attention we needed. Would highly recommend!

My husband and I booked the boudoir room at the Best Kept Secret B&B for 2 nights and wished we had booked a 3rd night. Eliza was very welcoming and gave us a tour of our accommodations and made us aware of local offers (pool, spa, restaurants). The house is in an excellent location, making it very easy to walk to restaurants, etc. We really enjoyed hanging out on the front porch after dinner while enjoying a beverage. The only thing I would tell others looking at this property is that there isn't central AC and the days were pretty hot when we were there. Eliza realized our room was warm and quickly plugged in a fan and suggested that we open the windows at night. The night air really cooled the room and we slept comfortably. The first morning we were there, Eliza make an asparagus, feta, and egg casserole that was delicious! She offered fruit and hash browns on the side. The second morning she made a Dutch (?) type pancake with apples and Canadian bacon along with fresh fruit, which was also quite yummy! I would definitely recommend this B&B and we would love to return.

Room Tip: Boudoir Room has a larger bathroom, but the Library Room was considerably cooler on a hot summer day

We are very glad you stayed with us and, yes, it is a very hot summer this year. Because of the heat we have opened more cool air into the Boudoir and it seems to have accomplished making that room very comfortable. We had one person recently add the extra blanket for sleeping and said it was perfect! So, I think you will find that either room is now nice and cool. Come see us again. Thanks for the review. Eliza

We found this B&B to be very close to city center and an easy walk to shops and restaurants. The home is 100 years old that has been renovated to be comfortable and maintain it's historical charm. The rooms are private with private baths and our room was comfortable. The shared living area includes TV and stereo (which we didn't use) and they have wifi if you insist on being on the internet.

Breakfast was sumptuous both days and the host were very interested in making sure my wife's long list of food allergies were properly addressed.

If you are looking for an over done environment this is not your best bet. The home is comfortable and well appointed, providing a relaxing environment. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about Glenwood Springs and provided a couple coupons that saved us $$ at the springs and provided a better experience during our visit.

Room Tip: Queen sized beds.
