This small B&B a block off the main highway through town has much to recommend it. It's almost ideally placed for access to the bars and restaurants in the middle of town, yet far enough off the main drag that road noise is not a problem. The grounds are gorgeous and well set up for special events; the included breakfast... More

Staying at the Secret Garden is like staying at your favorite aunt's home! It's lovely, cozy, very serene, and with plenty of privacy. It's easy walking distance to everything in Ouray. And, the best part is the owner, Sarah. She is so warm, interesting, and accommodating. We felt like we were leaving our favorite aunt when we drove away. We... More

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast - there is no question about that. The problem is the owner, Sara. My daughter was planning here wedding here several years ago, and loved this spot for the wedding and reception. My daughter, my good friend and I booked rooms in February (the wedding was in June) so we could sit down... More

What makes this place one of the best ever rentals I have stayed in is how homely this place has been made to be and the warmth that Sara brings as a person and a host. This place is beautifully situated right next to a small creek with the backdrop of the beautiful mountains of Colorado. The location of the... More

Sara , our host was incredibly nice. She made some delicious breakfasts during our stay. She was so nice that she made some vegetarian breakfast for me separately as I am a veggie. Great Service, very neat bed rooms and bathroom. I will be staying here again for my next visit to ouray. Highly recommended !

We stayed here on our honeymoon and we were very pleased. This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and we were nervous because we didn't know what to expect. But with our good experience, we will come back here and try other bed and breakfasts when we travel. Our host was friendly and professional. She made... More

This is a darling spot to stay in Ouray. Located on a quiet side street a couple blocks from Main Street, you'll be treated as a treasured guest. Very informal and relaxing, enjoy sitting in the living room to read or catch up using the wifi. Sara is a very gracious host and fabulous cook. Plan to be hungry for... More

The plan was to spend two nights at SG, and I ended up staying three. After almost two weeks on my ski-road trip, the bed was easily the most comfortable one of the whole trip. The heated floors were nice too. Convenient to Telluride without the Telluride prices and restaurants within walking distance. Sarah is a wonderful hostess who made... More

We stayed two nights in September 2015 as part of our Fall "leaf-peeping" trip around Colorado. The quiet, private grounds surrounding Secret Garden featured many varieties of flowers in bloom, so it was even more "eye candy" for guests to enjoy. Our room was quiet, spacious and very well appointed. The bed was really comfortable, and the in-room shower was... More

Had a wonderful stay. Might have drank a bit too much wine and stayed out on the patio a bit late and got sprayed by the water sprinkler system but... It was a blast. House is charming, gardens were beautiful, and the breakfast was the icing on the cake. Thanks. We will return.
