“Luxury Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The Golden Leaf is a beautiful, peaceful place to stay while in Estes Park. It has all of the amenities, gorgeous features, fantastic service and more. The location is fantastic- quiet with beautiful views, yet easy to access Estes Park and RNP. The breakfast was delicious! The house is wonderfully upgraded with keeping all of the integrity of the history and is unique and large. We would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone looking for a high-class stay in Estes Park.

We had a great stay at the Golden Leaf. Monica made us feel at home. Everything was updated and clean. Close enough in town to walk, but far enough away to enjoy the views and the quiet. Great breakfast as well. We highly recommend the Golden Leaf.

Our time at the Golden Leaf Inn was a highlight of our vacation this summer. The Inn itself is a beautifully restored and tastefully decorated arts and crafts home. There is character and history in each room, and the "hidden spaces" are a unique feature. We enjoyed the mountain scenery, the luxurious robes, the super-comfortable bed, and the chloride-free hot tub. The location-- close but not too close to the downtown shopping, and just minutes from the entrance to RMNP-- is very convenient.

Monica is truly an extraordinary inn-keeper. She has thought of every detail to ensure guests are pampered, relaxed, and comfortable. She is also a marvelous cook-- I won't forget the delicious crepes I has for breakfast! We highly recommend the Golden Leaf Inn for those looking for a peaceful, unique, and memorable experience!

Monica is a young, vibrant, and beautiful hostess and we felt so privileged to be able to spend a night at her bed and breakfast. The house itself is amazing--wonderful details in all of the furniture and woodwork with unique and elegant touches throughout the house. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay while in Estes Park, please call Monica! She knows a lot about the town and has a heart for the Lord. I especially enjoyed the views and the deer and hummingbirds and various other animals that I was able to watch early in the morning from the patio. In the late morning, we also caught several elk making themselves quite at home just outside the window. It was a fantastic photo opportunity! We were able to see the rodeo while we were in town and visit Rocky Mountain National Park that is very close by!

Room Tip: We loved the room with the fireplace and a perfect view of Long's Peak. Their was a private bat...

The Golden Leaf Inn is in such a beautiful, private location, yet within walking distance of the quaint downtown of Estes Park. My family had such a warm and wonderful stay. We recommend it to anyone visiting Colorado. The Inn keeper, Monica, is so welcoming and the breakfast was delish.

A friend and I were driving by the house this week and Monica was sitting on the front porch. We told her we had worked on the estate sale and how much we loved the house. She invited us in and I can't tell you how impressed we were with the love that has been put into this house. The renovations kept the arts and craft feel of the home, the kitchen is a dream, the bedrooms offer serenity with a view. They have a beautiful new B & B with a history.
