The Best Kept Secret is definitely a secret in the heart of Glenwood Springs. The home is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. Easy access to the local stores and restaurants and within walking distance. Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend getaway!

I've stayed in B&B's before but this was honestly the best one; the only place I've stayed that felt like home. It felt like I've known Eliza and David forever. The home is beautiful, clean and comfortable. It is located in town where you have easy access to wonderful restaurants and spas. I love the walking trail that runs along... More

My first stay at a Bed & Breakfast and I loved it! Eliza, David and Jesse were so welcoming. Their lovely home is situated perfectly in downtown Glenwood Springs so it’s very easy to walk to restaurants, hiking trails and other attractions in the area. Eliza lays out a nice continental breakfast with the sweetest fruit. The beds are comfortable... More

The hosts here are amazing! They make you feel right at home and explain everything to you, plus give you coupons for things in town. The home was very clean and inviting, and we loved the history behind the house. On top of all the that, it was great being so close to EVERYTHING! 1 block away from downtown. Loved... More

Stayed 3 nights in February. Easy drive to Aspen/Snowmass. Walking distance to great restaurants. The owners were very helpful with suggesting places to eat and how to take advantage of ski buses. Breakfasts were always more than adequate. Hot tub is very enjoyable. The room was clean and well equipped.

Eliza and David are the perfect hosts- full of great suggestions for food, hiking and entertainment. Lovely labyrinth to walk and meditate, the Scalar Heart session was a special bonus. We also got discounts at the Vapor Caves!

Our stay at Best Kept Secret was lovely and very relaxing. David provided us with a wealth of information on hikes, restaurants, hot springs, and other fun things to do in the area. The inn is a short stroll from many restaurants in Glenwood Springs-- David can tell you all their favorites! Bicycles were an added bonus, which, unfortunately, we... More

This BnB is a very good place to stay if you find yourself in grand Junction (which is far more pleasant than some folk think). A quiet location, with comfortable beds, hospitable hosts and a very good breakfast all at good value. Excellent advice on walks and restaurants made for a good stay.

Our stay here was just super: The location, food (especially yummy breakfasts), hikes and hot tub all helped. But what really made the visit special for us was the host and hostess.

Eliza and David are probably going to have to change the name of their B & B if they keep providing such an amazing place to stay. We had family members from 3 different states coming together for my niece's high school graduation. We were able to hang out like a real family and even took turns making breakfast for... More
