This is a unique, cozy Bed & Breakfast in Keystone that my husband and I have fell in love with! We booked our room last minute online when we found out we had an extra day in CO. We also booked dinner reservations through the B&B online. After booking, we realized how expensive dinner was (we were on a budget trip) and probably wouldnt have made them if we had done any research on the price, but we were sure glad we did!
When we arrived, the host informed us that our room was the only room with a shared bath (sharing the bathroom with all of the restraunt guests). She said she usually tells people this before they book the room, but because we did it online she couldnt. We agreed this was not a huge deal as we were only staying one night. We appreciated her telling us this up-front. To be honest, it wasnt bad. The bathroom has a toilet and shower, but you only share the toilet during dinner when outside guests are there. You do not share the shower with anyone else staying there. I just made sure to shower before dinner. I also obviously didnt leave my shower stuff in there.
We stayed in room 4A, which was the last room at the end of the hall by the main back door. This location gets a lot of noise and traffic because of the back door, but all of the guests were respectful of noise during our stay. Understand that the room is very small, with no TV. It is only large enough for a bed and dresser, so you probably will not want to spend a lot of time in the room. The room was very clean and the bed was really comfortable. We absolutely adored the quaintness of this place, but its definitely not for everyone. Also, 4A is the only room that shares the bathroom, so if that bothers you, book a different room.
Prior to dinner, we went to the bar and enjoyed some drinks by their large fire. The snowy scene through the windows made us feel like we were in a movie. Their beer selection was diverse, with both common and uncommon choices. They also had a very large wine menu with varying prices. My husband enjoyed a beer made twice a year by monks in Belgium and I had a nice glass of Cabernet. Definitely cozy and a moment etched in memory forever.
Dinner was absolutely incredible. WORTH. EVERY. PENNY. Its a 5 course meal of sumptuous, local choices. I had vinisen and my husband had lamb (i believe?). Each course was heaven for my taste buds. Our waiter explained every dish in great detail as he served it so we knew exactly what we were eating. We enjoyed desert in the living area by the fire. The chefs there are very talented and everything we ate was delicious.
Breakfast the next morning is definitey better than your average fruit/cereal spread. They had a good selection of fruit, cereal, bagels, toast, etc., but you could also order from the hot menu, which we did. Eggs, french toast, eggplant, veggies. Great selection, great food, service.
We are not people who normally spend a lot of money on food, or anything rather, so we were a little worried we would feel out of place. Definitely not. Everyone made us feel so comfortable at dinner and throughout our stay. Through and through, this place had excellent service and was a very comfortable stay. The staff made us feel like we were at home. Anything we asked for was given immediately. This is a great place for couples or people just wanting to spend some time away from the hustle and bustle. There was a couple there with some teenage children and the kids definitely ruined the mood a bit. Not a place for kids.
