Secret Garden
Ranked #3 of 8 Ouray B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 16, 2008

We arrived in Ouray late in the evening and without a place to stay. Karen at the Box Canyon Lodge graciously called around for us and secured a room for us at the B&B. The location is superb, a mere block to town and a block to the river. We had a small room with a full bed and lots of antiques ($90). The rest of the home is well appointed and comfortable with plenty of room to spread out and relax. I particularly liked the gardens. We did have to share the bath with one other couple which turned out to be no problem at all. The other 2 rooms are a bit bigger and the largest ($175) also has it's own palatial bathroom and fireplace. Sarah, our hostess, was delightful and bent over backwards to accommodate her guests. After a long day hiking and driving, she invited us to help ourselves to the outdoor hot tub...enjoy a glass of wine she said. In the morning, she prepared a huge breakfast of homemade apple pancakes, chz and ham souflee, coffee, etc...Her other job is as a caterer and she does NOT disappoint.

If you enjoy the intimacy of a B&B, then this is the place for you...
