“Great Holiday start”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2007

We started our 2007 holiday at the Talmar. Kathy was a wonderful hostess, giving good advice on the surrounding area, things to see and do. Breakfasts were excellent, and the accomodation was spotless. A great start to a wonderful trip.

This was our first stay at a B&B and it was wonderful. Ms Bury was a very nice lady and a very good cook. We stayed in the Royal Suite and it was lovley. The weather was warm and dry so we had breakfast on the deck outside the room. It was a very good experience.

Kathy Bury, the owner of the Talamar B&B is actually very nice, however the experience my daughter and I had with her was not always pleasant. What was good about the B&B was that it is located in a quiet area, my daughter really enjoyed the jacuzzi, it was more affordable then some, and the room was spacious. We stayed in what was supposed to be the "grandest room," the Royal Sweet. It was not all that nice. It had a small television, however it was located far away from the large bed in a different section of the room in front of a very small couch. The decor was a mixture of item's from the 70's & 80's, this is obvious also by walking through the rest of the B&B. The food was probably the most dissapointing. We stayed there for three days and the food was very "no frills." There was never enough to drink, and my daughter and I usually left hungry. The food was supposed to be "four stars, I would say two at the most. One morning we had french toast which included, a few pieces of dried microwaved bacon, and a tiny glass of orange juice, that was it. In fact the syrup for the french toast,was still left in the litte container it was purchased in. There were no cold cereals to choose from, and absolutely no peace and quiet while eating. The inkeeper stood there talking over us never getting the hint to just leave my daughter and I alone!!! Whether you wanted to listen or not, Kathy simply "talked your ear off." Also, regarding the air conditioning be warned!! My daughter and I were forced to upgrade to the Royal sweet because all of the other rooms in the B&B were to hot, because of faulty airconditioning. There were rooms that were nicer than the supposed "honeymoon sweet" but with Kathy's AC not working, the rest of the B&B was boiling hot. Lastely; I know the innkeeper has a good heart but not one morning durring breakfast was my daughter and I left in peace and quiet. We ate in the kitchen next to the stove where the inkeeper literally talked our ear off. If you are not a "morning person" be warned. Then when you leave Talamar you are practically forced to take pictures with here and autograph this huge book she has with other past Talamar visitiors, whether you had a favorable experience or not. 99% of the decor is old seventies, the food is very, very plain, you are not allowed to ride the horses, even though on here website it emplies you can, this is at best a two and a half star B&B. I have traveled the world many times, stayed in many B&B's and this was by far the worst experience ever. If you have an upcomming wedding I implore you to think of another place to stay other than Talamar. It is true that the inkeeper is very sweet and kind but in my opinion a two & a half star B&B should not be touted as a four or five star. Thank you

  • Liked — It was cheap in price
  • Disliked — Falso advertising, & the very plain breakfasts in the morning

Kathy is an incredible hostess - we had a fantastic time at the Talmar. Our stay was not nearly long enough, and our schedule was so busy that we didn't really get the full experience. However - Kathy was very accommodating and the breakfast was spectacular! Definitely on our list of places to visit again!

If your looking for a secluded get-away close to nature and only a short drive from Denver, look no further. My new wife and I booked 3 nights in the Royal Suite. We had planned to spend the remainder of our honeymoon in Boulder. Needless to say, we ended up staying 7 nights. The room was clean, well organized, and very large. We could have held a gymnastics competition in there. Trees formed an umbrella of privacy over the private patio. I was even able to fit in my weekly swim. All I had to do was fill the bath tub. Spirit and Dolly, permanent equine residents at Talmar, love to eat carrots and whatever is left over from breakfast. By far, the best part about Talmar was Kathy, the wonderful inn-keeper. She was very knowledgable about the area and was always ready to draw a precise map with many sites along the route. Her breakfast is to die for. It was our first Bed and Breakfast experience and the experience definetly changed our outlook. Kathy, Dolly, and Spirit made our honeymoon in Colorado a memory we'll never forget.

We booked two nights in the Royal Suite and wished we had planned for more time. If you are looking for a place that is offers high class amenities with a home touch this is the place for you. The price is more then affordable for the luxury this place will supply in abundance. The original website to this lovely property does not do it true justice. The pictures that i reviewed before our actual stay does not give you the true feeling of size or splendor that
the suite actually supplies. Kathy is a wonderful hostess that goes out of her way to supply you with any service or advice that you may need to make your stay truly wonderful. The food goes beyond most places with well cooked dishes and changes in variety and time to suit your individual needs. I know of no other hotel or bed & breakfast that offers such conditions for this low price. I would certainly stay again and plan to return as quickly as possible to revisit the loveliness of this house and Denver.

Wonderfully relaxing environment, elegant surroundings in a casual country setting. Innkeeper Kathy Bury is a most warm & welcoming hostess. This was our first B&B experience and we have been duly spoiled. We spent 3 nights in the Royal Suite, and thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities, the $10,000 king sized bed is just like sleeping on a cloud, we also enjoyed unwinding on our private patio after a nice long relaxing soak in the multi-jetted large jacuzzi tub. We had an opportunity to tour all the rooms and each one is elegantly appointed and would provide a memorable experience. We enjoyed spending a little time each day visiting with the horses. And Kathy always has a bowl of treats at the ready, your certain to enjoy both Dolly & Spirit. Wonderful breakfasts will give you a good start to your day, the Inn is easily located and just a short drive into Denver, Golden or Boulder. Whether you are planning a romantic weekend or just looking to kick your feet up and relax. I encourage you to contact Kathy at Talmar and enjoy all the area has to offer.

  • Liked — elegant yet casual country atmosphere
  • Disliked — nothing...everything was top notch!!!
