“Dove Inn: A Real "Golden" Nugget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

As we neared the end of a 5 week trip to the US in late October this year, and prepared ourselves for the long ride home back to Australia, we decided to wind down in Golden, a gorgeous little town near Denver, CO. Our accommodation was with Dove Inn B&B. From the moment we entered this gorgeous historic house we were greeted by some of the kindest, most genuine people you could encounter.

We were shown around by the very hospitable Kirk, and I can honestly say that there are not enough words to describe how lovely and helpful this man was. Our room (Parisian) was cozy and beautifully decorated, it was just a bit of a shame that they were having unseasonably warm weather, as I think the cold would have added to the ambiance of this already quant room.

Although I didn't get a chance to sample their breakfast menu (slept in) there was plenty of goodies to have, baked fresh to enjoy with a hot beverage at your convenience.

On average most B&B's we have stayed with have been a pleasurable experience, but it's sometimes the little gestures that set one apart from the other. For example on our final night we informed Kirk that we were leaving very early the next morning and would not be around for breakfast, so he was kind enough to provide us with a to go breakfast bag with a personalised thank you note on each of our bags, simple but very memorable.

A huge thank you to all at Dove Inn for making us feel so welcome and comfortable, I'm so glad that we chose to stop at the lovely town of Golden, and would certainly recommend Dove Inn to everyone.

We wrapped up a 6 day business trip with two nights at the Dove in. Our room was the Aspen suite. It had a large Jacuzzi tub in the sitting area of the suite. We went Mountain Biking at nearby North Table Mtn. It began to snow on our ride so the Jacuzzi was appreciated after a cold ride. The inn was very clean and the breakfast offered a nice variety. A bonus in the breakfast room was a Espresso/Cappuccino machine. My only complaint would be the steepness of the steps leading to the upstairs.

Location was great. Close to coors brewery, restaurants, shopping and nightlife. Customer service was awesome. Rooms were comfortable and breakfast was good. We will stay here the next time we are in the area.

After a long grueling hike my wife and I decided to get some R&R at The Dove Inn. The Inn was so inviting and the staff is so friendly! Their DVD and book library which is provided free of charge had a great variety to choose from and have a vast array of card and board games available. The homemade orange souffle was fabulous and Elizabeth the owner even share the recipe. Our visit to the Coors plant was just a five minute walk from the inn. The only downside of this place is the lack of parking. It can be incredibly difficult to find a spot if there is an event downtown. You may have to circle the block a few times or even park a few blocks away.

The Dove Inn is an exceptional B&B in Golden, CO. This was our first experience at a B&B and also our first time in Golden. Kirk was whom checked us in & he was more than welcoming. He gave us a tour of the B&B and gave us a map & some suggestions for things to do in Golden. We arrived early & they were very accommodating at letting us check in early. We also had an early departure so they prepared to-go breakfasts for us that were in the fridge for us to grab on our way out in the morning. The decor is great as well; we stayed in the Red Rocks room which also included a full bathroom with antique claw foot tub. The Dove Inn is just a few blocks from downtown & Clear Creek so it's in a great location to visit Golden. Overall amazing stay and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a B&B in Golden!

No problem having "sweet dreams" at the Dove Inn. A most comfortable, relaxing Inn. Elizabeth, the owner and her staff are like old friends. Everyone was most helpful in answering our questions, and suggesting ideas for touring the area. The breakfasts are delicious and Elizabeth doesn't hesitate in fulfilling special requests. The rooms are cozy and neat. The Dove Inn is situated in town and very convenient for getting to all points in the surrounding area including easy travel by Light Rail to Denver. Excellent stop in the beautiful state of Colorado.

If you are in Denver or traveling to the area you would do well to spend some time at The Dove Inn. Innkeeper Elizabeth Padilla could not be more welcoming, accommodating and friendly. The Inn is a restored 150 year old home, tastefully decorated without being overdone. The food is lovely. Elizabeth is a font of information and guidance about the area. The Front Range is right there and the altitude is not much higher than Denver making it easy to enjoy the outdoors. All this and it's a short drive from Denver. Great place for a retreat!

Room Tip: There are rooms on the first floor for those who might have trouble with the stairs.
