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.

We generally try to stay at a Bed and Breakfast. Typically the rooms are nicer and the breakfast is better then a standard hotel continental breakfast, plus you get the added advantage of visiting with other travelers. This was the case at the Secret Garden. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was wonderful. Sara was a very nice... More

We had a wonderful time at this quiet and private bed and breakfast spot just off the main street in Ouray, Colorado. Sara is a wonderful host and a great cook! The feel is very informal and friendly. Sara is also knowlegable about the area and local landmarks.

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at Secret Garden. Sara was very hospitable, fun and a wonderful cook. The grounds are beautiful. We loved eating freshly picked raspberries in the back yard. The furnishings inside were comfortable and inviting. We would enjoy staying there again.

I've found out now, that maybe B&B's are just not my thing. The stay here felt mostly awkward, like you were staying at a distant relative's house. When we arrived, we walked into the house where the hostess was talking with another couple. She seemed a little dumbfounded when we came in, and I believe she said, "...and you are?..."... More

Being the daughter of bed and breakfast owners, I know the efforts involved in making sure guests feel welcome in your home. Sara hits every point perfectly. We felt as though we were staying in a family home. Our 3 year-old daughter was welcomed with open arms and given run of the house. Other b and b's in Ouray have... More
