Stay at the Best Kept Secret B and B! Cute rooms...if you travel with another couple, you will have the run of the downstairs. There are two rooms each with its own bath (which is a BIG plus if you've ever done b and b's...). Dave, the host, and his wife, Liza, are wonderful and knowledgeable hosts. Grab a bottle of wine and enjoy the beautiful evenings on the front porch! (Remember those?) If you are lucky, Gus the basement cat, will sit on your lap. Fantastic breakfasts...we will be back!!!

Thanks for recommending the Best Kept Secret B&B as the place to stay while enjoying the many attractions of Glenwood Springs. The fact that the B&B has just the two downstairs bedrooms, each with its own bathroom does provide privacy and gives that “home away from home” feel. Everyone loves spending time on the front porch. It is hard to say which is best, morning coffee, flowers, and sunshine or wine at dusk or in the evening! Return visits are even more fun.

We recently stayed here for two nights on our recent visit to Glenwood Springs. We were traveling with another couple and this B&B was a perfect spot to stay. It is within walking distance to town, restaurants, shops and many of the places of interest in the Glenwood Springs area. The owners David and Liza and wonderful people. David is extremely knowledgeable about anything you would like to know regarding attractions and things to do in the area. They really make you feel at home in their beautiful house. We stayed in the Study and our friends in the Bourdoir. We had the downstairs living area all to ourselves and still felt like we had a great deal of privacy. The breakfast each morning is outstanding with several choices and "specials" of the day as well. Our coffee was waiting for us each morning and David was always there with refills even if we were outdoors sitting on the lovely porch. Snacks are provided throughout the day: nuts, pretzels etc. Each room also has a small refridgerator for your personal use with bottled water provided. Each room has a private bathroom furnished with nice ammenities and lots of towels. Gus the cat and Jesse the dog are great hosts as well! I would not hesitate to stay here again if we are ever in the area and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to feel "well taken care of" while on vacation or passing through the area. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning someday.

My wife and I have traveled in Europe where B&B’s are “the place to stay” anywhere you visit. As B&B managers, we try to take care of our guests with the same “B&B pampering” we received while abroad. This Victorian home was selected because it was within walking distance of the local attractions, shops and restaurants. It was several years later that the decision was made to share the Glenwood Springs experience as the Best Kept Secret B&B. When traveling couples take both rooms, they get the whole downstairs and porch areas all to themselves, making it the perfect place to stay. Thanks for the sharing your positive comments so that others will know what to expect when they book here.

The moment we saw the house and yard, we knew we had made the perfect choice for our stay in Glenwood Springs. And every room inside just added to the ambiance. We stayed in The Study - charming and cozy. The proprietors could not have been more helpful and gracious, going far beyond any expectations. And the breakfast menus were superb. As beautifully served as it was a delight to eat. Delicious. We had a wonderful time and are looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: Both rooms are delightfully furnished.

Thanks for letting other travellers know about your stay with us. We often get questions like: "Can we arrive by train and still be able to see and do everything?" Your experience confirms you can! As you already know we enjoyed your visit very much. If we were able to pick our guests, you two would fall under "the perfect choice" category as well.

Excellent service and ammenities! They were a very warm and charming couple.
I wanted them to "adopt us" as family, so we could always go there!!
Very knowledgable about the area, and the fun stuff to do. A lot of locals admire this Bed and Breakfast and had great things to say about them.
I will definitely return again and again!!!

Thanks for using the word "nurturing" about the "feel" of the Best Kept Secret. Our guests are "extended family", consider yourself adopted.

I traveled to Glenwood Springs for an early season fishing adeventure. We decided to stay at the Best Kept Secret on a whim and was amazed. The hospitallity was second to none. The rooms were clean and the food was great. The hosts had an extensive knowledge of the history making the stay just that more interesting. The fishing is great, but having a place to come back to like the bed and breakfast made the trip one that will be reapeated year in and year out.

We can't always guarantee great fishing in the "Gold Medal" waters of the Roaring Fork River (only four blocks away), but we will contiue to strive for a consistent quality experience at the Best Kept Secret B&B.
