We needed a break from a very hectic summer and wanted to support the local economy after the fires in the area so chose to stay here. What a fun place. It's an former historic rooming house so even though it's a "bed & breakfast" there is an element of it being like a small hotel as well. Thus, the name Avenue HOTEL B&B.
The hosts were out of town the weekend we came but the people who were in charge were just as knowledgeable and hospitable. In fact, if I hadn't known, I would've thought the people serving us were the owners.
We stayed on the 3rd floor, in the back corner and it was very nice and quiet. Just what our souls and bodies needed. We used the hot tub one night and that morning we had seen someone cleaning it so we knew it was nice and ready for us (it wasn't yucky looking or anything, I was just pointing out that they take cleaning things, including the hot tub seriously).
They have to get kudos for being eco-friendly. Their soap and lotion are in dispensers labeled that they are from a local company called Salus. So, it's also eco-friendly in that there was no transportation involved to get it to the hotel in that it's across the street.
The breakfasts were delectable and one of us being gluten-free, they even made a special muffin every morning for me.
I would highly recommend this place. We have a favorite B&B when we go to Estes Park and now we have one when we decide to take a shorter trip and go to Manitou Springs.
