Best Kept Secret B & B

Reviewed November 21, 2010

Just returned home from our weekend at The Best Kept Secret B&B. We had a wonderful visit to Glenwood Springs thanks to our informative hostess Liza. She shared information on activities and dining that helped us plan our time there. We also enjoyed the very generous breakfasts she prepared each morning. It was a perfect weekend.

Best Kept Secret B&B is a most charming, impeccably clean place to stay. It is very well located in downtown Glenwood Springs, close to the Amtrak station, restaurants, shops, and several local hiking trails. Our group of 4 women friends occupied the two cozy bedrooms of the B&B plus a comfortable roll-away bed set up in the living area at night. Each of the bedrooms has its own bathroom, but the "Study" room has no closet. Keeping things tidy in this room could be a bit of a challenge depending on length of stay. This is more than compensated for by the extremely hospitable proprietors, David and Liza. David is a wealth of knowledge about local history and lore, and Liza prepares incredibly delicious and healthy breakfasts. Best Kept Secret B&B is a real gem!

We stayed here for one night as we travelled from Grand Junction back to the east of the state, and our only regret is we didn't have more time to spend in Glenwood Springs. David's stories about the town were intriguing, and if we are ever in the area again we will definitely pay another visit - and he is definitely the person to ask for info on the town and the surrounding area! Our room was very clean and comfortable (and contained everything you could possibly need), and the breakfast was fantastic - what more could two weary travellers ask for?!
Many thanks,
Joanne & Kenny

This quaint and adoreable home is quiet, serene and the perfect place for R&R. Every detail, from fresh flowers daily in the bathroom (which were picked from their own lush garden) to fine chocolates in the room made our visit wonderful. After indulging in the vapor caves, mineral pools and massages, returning to our room for an afternoon nap was a welcome retreat. There are only two suites which added to the intimacy and peacefulness of this establishment. David, the innkeeper, is quite the historian, sharing history and answering any questions we had. The handmade soaps and lotions were an added surprise and personal touch.

My wife and I had a 2 week vacation cut short with an nasty auto accident, so we decided at the last minute to take our final 2 days of the vacation and book a B&B. We found this charming B&B on the internet and called to see if there was still availablitiy with such short notice. They had one room remaining so we booked it. I was hoping for a spot not in town, but I am glad we chose this B&B. Starting with the initial phone call, and up to our departure on Sunday, the service level was superb. Michelle, David and Liza were all extremely helpful, caring and genuinely down to earth friendly. As I stated, my wife and I were revovering from a nasty auto accident and all we wanted was to relax and recover. We sat on the front porch each morning for coffee and each afternoon/evening before bed. Our room, "the Study", was perfect and the bed was very comfortable. The air conditiong was a pleasant surprise, which made napping in the daytime quite easy and comfortable. The breakfast we were served were home made, quality dishes that were delicious and wholesome. The hot tub was private and in a nice setting in the back garden area. The grounds themselves added a wonderfully nice touch and it was great to sit and watch all of the different types of birds come and go. In the end we could not have selected a nicer place for our visit. We love Glenwood and have made many trips there over the years. The Best Kept Secret B&B will forever make Glenwood even more special than it already is to us. Tom & Mary-Steamboat Springs

We had a wonderful visit! The house is beautiful, spotless, and quite peaceful. It is a short walk to the shops, restaurants, and hot springs. Also, they have bikes to loan, and it is just a few blocks to the bike trail that goes through Glenwood and the canyon. The breakfast was fresh, flavorful and filling. A perfect way to start the day. The hot tub out back was the perfect ending.

This is a wonderful two room B&B in the true sense. Rooms are comfortable, attractive, very clean and quiet with choice of breakfast menu, all freshly made. Living room is cozy and comfortable with TV, snacks and drinks. They set you up with bikes if you want and can direct you to various points of interest, activities and restaurants. We arrived by train and never needed to drive. It is all there!
