We stayed in The Study. Our 3-year-old slept on the Murphy bed. It was perfect for the three of us. Great cozy get away. We walked from the B&B to restaurants and coffee. Eliza and David were helpful and answered questions about town and provided yummy muffins, but they weren't all up in our biz. Highly recommended.
Thank Ty H

We really enjoyed our long weekend to Glenwood. The owners are very kind, knowledgeable and supplied a wonderful selection of goodies for breakfast. The room was very comfortable, very cozy, filled with wonderful old books. We would highly recommend.

Beginning this on a positive note, our hosts were gracious and accommodating and we liked the location. However, the “Study” is not suited for two guests. One person can navigate the incredibly small space, but two people in this room does not work. The room is completely airless and cluttered. Large bookshelves take up almost a whole wall, and a useless Murphy bed (two people cannot fit, so why in heaven is there a third possible bed) box in the guests. The one possibility for putting your clothes in drawers was full of extra pillows and blankets, which should have been removed and optionally offered during these hot summer months. The only place to hang clothes was over the refrigerator and the only place for doing makeup was over the microwave! The bed was uncomfortable. You can only lock your room from the inside. The windows were not able to be opened so you could not enjoy the cool Colorado night air while you were sleeping. Vacationers want gracious accommodations. This was not. We are very sorry we did not feel positively about our stay. We sincerely wish it would have been otherwise.

We had originally booked the Library but found out it was already taken. The owners let us have the Gable Suite for the same price, which we really appreciated! They were out of town but left information on things to do, maps etc. and trusted us to leave a check. We loved the property. It was very homey and comfortable. Loved all the little extras . Perfect location as well. We could walk downtown and across the river. We would definitely stay again!

We stayed here because we wanted to see the Colorado River Canyon departing from the east and returning. The B&B location is good on a quiet street and within walking distance of all that Glenwood Springs has to offer.
