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.
