The breakfasts were amazing! After two nights at the beautiful, historic Brown Palace In Denver we arrived at the Bears Inn for New Years weekend. From the various themed rooms we had chosen the Honeymoon Suite for two nights. Vicki, the proprietor, exchanged cheerful emails with me to make arrangements, and we were warmly greeted upon arrival. Our sitting room had a comfortable love seat, chairs and table, and a view of Christmas lights in the snow-covered meadow. The decor of this rustic mountain Inn was charming and perfect for the suite, yet after paying for internet in Denver we were delighted to learn there was free wireless! The old-fashioned clawfoot tub/shower was equipped with three shower heads, and two cozy bathrobes hung in the closet. The bed was luxuriously comfortable, with views of the meadow and snow-capped Mt. Evans beyond. Afternoon snacks, the coffee and tea buffet, guest refrigerators, wine glasses and openers helped make relaxing together by the fireplace just perfect. The most welcome surprise was the breakfast; Vicki and her staff served epicurean delights! A welcome relief from usual carbohydrate-laden business hotel breakfast buffets. On the first morning we were served coffee at our candlelit table, followed by eggs with the most delicious brown sugar-sesame glazed bacon, quinoa, and other treats. On our final morning we feasted on poached eggs with Welsh rarebit sauce over whole grain toast, crispy sausages, and the freshest berries and fruit with yogurt and pomegranate seeds, beautifully served in crystal. Yet despite the elegance of the meal, the atmosphere was comfortable and cozy, with the fire crackling nearby. We moved from Evergreen in 2000, and return frequently. We often stay with friends, but when we don't we stay in one of the B & B's. This was our first visit to Bears Inn, and it was a warm home away from home! (But with better cooking!)
