“Best B&B west of the Mississippi.....and maybe east of as well!”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Our stay at the Dove Inn couldn't have been better. The facilities were top-notch and service from the innkeeper went beyond the standard level of care. Elizabeth's flexibility in serving our wants and needs was very generous. And the breakfasts...OMG...delicious!

If your visit includes Golden this B&B is a must! If your visit is to Denver you couldn't find a better value than the Dove Inn with Denver being just "down the road".

This B&B was such a great find that I hardly want to tell the TripAdvisor world about it, in case it gets so popular that there are no rooms free for me the next time I want to go back!! My husband and I stayed there for 5 nights while he was at a conference at the School of Mines (for which it is very convenient). I'd tagged along with him for fun and needed somewhere to hang out in the day and do some writing, and the Dove Inn couldn't have been a more perfect home from home.

There are 7 rooms but the Serenity Suite is a big one at the back of the B&B, slightly apart from the others, with a massive comfy bed, large sofa, coffee table, fake wood burner (if you're cold) and plenty of floor space for spreading out the book you happen to be working on! I'd planned on spending time reading and writing in cafes but had absolutely no need to go anywhere as my room was so comfortable and there was a Lavazza hot drinks machine downstairs (best mochas ever!) plus another tea/coffee machine upstairs (with a varied and fun selection of beverages).

Elizabeth - the amazing hostess - makes sure there's always fresh baking in the guests' lounge area, as well as fresh fruit and a selection of healthy granola type bars. She's often around and about (always contactable if not, but needed), in a really easy, helpful and friendly - rather than fussing or in your face - way! She was even kind enough to take me to a great shopping mall one day (we had no car there) so I could go to a better supermarket and see some other cool shops too.

Her breakfasts are also awesome - my eyes and taste buds goggled at Crème Brûlée French Toast with crème fraiche and raspberries (with a side of bacon!) the first morning, in particular. She clearly puts a lot of thought and effort into making interesting and delicious breakfasts and although granola, yogurt and fruit is always an option (which you may seriously consider if eating too well the rest of the day - easily done!), your willpower may well falter when a gorgeous plate of food comes from the kitchen towards you :-)

We would stay there again without a second thought!

A wonderful B and B within walking distance of everything in Golden. Clean, neat and comfortable. Great breakfast. The Inn keepers are a friendly, great family who are eager to meet the travelers needs. I highly recommend but get reservations early as they fill up.

It was our last evening in Colorado and we're so glad we stayed at the Dove Inn. Elizabeth was a great host, directing us to the many tasty eateries in Golden -- most of them only steps away.

Parking directly in front of the Inn is free throughout the day, and Elizabeth can help you park if all the spots in front are taken.

The location is perfect. Golden is a walkable small town and we highly recommend the Dove Inn.

An excellent 5 night stay in the Red Rocks room at the Dove Inn. Brilliance and beauty inside and outside the Inn. Cozy accommodations and amazing attention to the greenness and organic ingredients in the food. Elizabeth goes over and beyond 2 make it feel like home. Macadamia nut cookies rock star + fresh flowers all around! Downtown area and the beautiful river all around make it even cozier. A great ride up Lookout mountain for Sunrise, around the corner Red Rocks Amphitheater & Mother Cabrini Shrine.... plus the school of Mines! She attracts wonderful people to stay for a wonderful breakfast to start the day! Thank You!

A cozy, quaint place to stay about 30 minutes outside of Denver. It served as a great stepping off point to explore nearby Estes State Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. We stayed in the Parisian Room which was clean and just roomy enough. We had issues with Wifi connectivity so make sure you connect before you settle in for the evening in case you need assistance from the innkeepers and if Wifi is a must. Enjoyed the available cookies, coffee, and treats, but did find a long brown hair in the breakfast quiche that put a damper on the morning meal. Hostess was friendly and informative. Several restaurants in 2-3 minutes walking distance.

Room Tip: Parisian room had a poor internet connectivity

We've been to Golden a number of times and on all previous visits have stayed at one of the two downtown hotels. We decided to try the Dove Inn this time. The location is ideal - right downtown and within walking distance of all the stores and restaurants. Our room was cozy and extremely clean. The breakfast was delicious and the dining area was very pleasant. The shared dining and living room is very welcoming and available for guest's use 24 hours a day. Water, coffee, etc. is also available at any time. The innkeeper and staff are so friendly and helpful. We will definitely return on our next visit to Golden.
