“Great Choice”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

We only had one night to stay in Glenwood and made the perfect choice. David is most entertaining. I hope to read the book he recommended soon.

We stayed with David & Liza for 4 nights and they were absolutely wonderful in providing information and history about the area, places to go, things to do, and very, very helpful. Liza's breakfasts were wonderful, too! We especially enjoyed Jessie, their dog, who if you wished her to be around, was very loving and fun to those of us missing our pets at home! Would recommend a stay here.

One of our Best Kept Secrets is that Glenwood Springs is the "hub" in the wheel of fun things to see and do. Even in a 4 night stay it is hard to do it all (spa treatments,swiming and or relaxing in the Hot Springs Pool, sightseeing,caving, flyfishing, rafting, biking, hiking, jeeping, horseback riding, and paragliding are all doable from the B&B, enhancing the summer fun of being here on the Western Slope of the Rockies!

My husband and I stayed two nights last week at this wonderful B&B. I purposely selected the room called the "study" which was a room full of ambience; bookcases filled with books, comfy bed and a nice size desk and chair which my husband found useful for his laptop. There was also a nicely renovated attached bathroom. Proprietors, David and Liza, are great hosts. David is a source of information and Liza prepares a beautifully set table, adorned with lovely china, fresh flowers, soft music, lit candles and her breakfasts are superb! We also enjoyed using the hot tub and a couple of their bicycles for touring the vicinity. We would definitely stay again at Glenwood's, Best Kept Secret Bed and Breakfast.

Its fun to hear reviewers discuss or compare the room they select for their visit. The Boudoir and the Study are very different (unlike a lot of B&B's where one room is pretty much the same as the other). The managers each have a different favorite, which until you come and stay will remain one of their Best Kept Secrets.

We loved our stay at Best Kept Secret! A bit disappointed that the owners weren't in town for our stay but we absolutely loved Michelle who is their neighbor and fill in. I have to admit that I was a bit leery about Best Kept Secret. It looked to be the least 'fancy' B&B I had booked for our 9 night stay throughout three Colorado cities. It turned into our favorite!
Glenwood Springs was adorable. Lots to see.
We loved EVERY aspect of our stay here. Not one negative to mention.
Thank you Michelle for making us so welcome and treating us so kindly. You are a friendly wealth of knowledge and we hope you host our stay next time we're in Glenwood Springs :)

Room Tip: Boudoir - plenty of privacy

"Lovely" is the word to describe: the substitute hostess, Michelle, when the usual managers have to be away; the Town of Glenwood Springs; and the feel of this Victorian home, even before it became the Best Kept Secret B&B. Everyone has to have some "time off" and as managers we feel very fortunate to have Michelle fill in when we are not available. She provides gracious, knowledgeable, and thoughtful continuity to our guests; and those who are fortunate to meet her, always have only positives to report. Great job Michelle!

My daughter & I were hosted with such warmth and care by Liza & David. Accommodations were clean, comfortable, and beautiful; breakfast each morning was a work of art (delicious, too); and, suggestions for fun and relaxation really hit the mark. We had a terrific stay, and would come back to the Best Kept Secret B & B again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Both rooms are lovely.

We frequently have Mother and Daughter guests at the B&B. Hectic schedules at home often mean that it is hard to spend quality time there. Comfortable bedrooms, elegantly served breakfasts, a relaxed atmosphere and being within walking distance of shopping and restaurants really does make for a “terrific stay”. We think that is why mothers and daughters have such a memorable time at the Best Kept Secret B&B.

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.
