“peaceful and good for gluten free”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Secret Garden for our anniversary May 4th. Sarah is an exceptional chef and prepared a wonderful gluten free breakfast of eggs, protein and fruit. We had the place to ourselves and it was very quiet and peaceful. The bed was more comfortable than our one at home! Sarah has lived inteh area for many years and is a good resource for things to do locally.

Sarah, the owner, was an amazing host and excellent cook. I highly recommend it and have told our friends about our stay at Secret Garden. Most of her food was organic and hand-made with care. We fell in love with the setting of Ouray. The Secret Garden was extremely relaxing, romantic, immaculate, updated, and family-friendly. She even accommodated my 18-month-old son who received much special attention. We want to plan our next trip to stay at the Secret Garden in the summer so we can do more hiking and enjoy the flowers that I am told are in the garden. You will not be disappointed if you book this place!!!

We stayed here for the 2012 Ouray Ice Festival. Great location, we could walk to the ice park in a matter of 10 minutes. Great room, VERY comfortable bed, heated floors, plenty of room to store gear. B&B was clean, warm, inviting with the comfort of of a hot tub. Sara's food was stellar. Definitely would stay there again.

My husband and I chose Sara for our caterer at our wedding over New Year's in Ouray, we were so pleased with everything, we can't even describe how delicious the food was and how far past our expectations she rose! Sara was so delightful to work with in planning our wedding, meeting our needs, making sure we had what we wanted, and her staff were incredible as well! We are next planning to try out her B&B, because we KNOW, that her food and professionalism is TOP NOTCH! Highly recommended Sara and Secret Garden, you can't go wrong! We Love You Sara!

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Secret Garden B&B, traveling on vacation. Sara was great - friendly and lots of local knowledge. Breakfasts were excellent. The B&B is upscale and very comfortable. We highly recommend staying here.
