My daughter and I recently stayed while visiting the CU campus. This was my first time at a B&B and can't say enough positives about Briar Rose. The staff was friendly and helpful, breakfasts were amazing, and the room was comfortable and spotless. Much cleaner than a hotel and eco-friendly. The location is perfect for CU and Pearl Street. My...

So glad you had a great stay during your campus visit. If she chooses CU, it would be our pleasure to be your 'home away from home' if/when you come visit her here at school; and of course, if her college aspirations take her elsewhere we wish her the best in her schooling! Thanks again for staying with us!

This was the lodging of choice for a 70th birthday trip for 9 of us who have been friends since grade school. The place was everything we had hoped for. We all had nice rooms which were well taken care of and had adjacent bath rooms. The location is wonderful!! It was an easy walk to the Pearl street shopping...

This B&B is situated close to UC Boulder and close to the center of town. Staff was very helpful and new what service meant. The place has soul and charm and a loving atmosphere I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast around the big table. Food was awesome and I met so many warm and interesting people. I will be back!

I did slide/fall down a flight of v steep stairs, but that was my own fault. Otherwise this place is amazing -- beautiful linens, comfy room, a sunlit little balcony, ideally situated near U of C & Naropa, not far from shops & restaurants & a dispensary (!), quiet. The staff is friendly and accommodating and helpful and I wish...

My husband and I stayed for 2 days/ nights. It was wonderful - peaceful and relaxing. The staff is extremely friendly and ready to accommodate. Their baked treats are delicious. Abundant tea variety that they will fix for you, or you can do it yourself. Fresh filtered water anytime too. The breakfast is yummy. Day one was choice of eggs...

This lovely hotel is filled with Asian art and country antiques and is surrounded by peaceful gardens with a small pond and waterfall. Private parking for 6 cars. The sweet and attentive staff lend a relaxed air to the place, feels like one is being hosted in a family home. The carriage house rooms are lovely, close to Arapahoe Ave...

I was lucky enough to need to travel to Boulder several times in 2016 for a project that ran from February to November. I stayed at the Briar Rose on every visit and couldn't have been happier. From the wonderful staff to the excellent breakfasts and lovely accommodations there is nothing not to love. A complementary pot of tea might...

We had a lovely stay at Briar Rose-very comfortable stay and friendly staff who were very helpful with local information. Loved all range of teas and delicious homemade biscuits and cake. Particularly like the eco consideration, not only of the big bottles for shower use but also using natural products. Great location also, parking available and easy walking distance to...

So glad you had a great time! True, our breakfasts tend to be on the healthy side, but when we start with organic and local fresh ingredients it's hard to go wrong!
