We spent a night at the Jewel of the Canyons as our (almost) first B&B experience. It was charming! We were taking the Royal Forge Railroad train ride at 3:30, so we needed early or late check-in. We received a phone call early in the day offering us the opportunity to check-in whenever it was convenient. Shared some wonderful Holy Cross Abbey wine on the front porch before walking to Main Street for dinner. The Red Rocks Canyon room was wonderfully cozy, bed comfy and very quiet. Breakfast of strawberries with Devonshire cream, quiche and a wonderful strawberry muffin. If we return to that part of our wonderful state, we will be repeat customers!
