Great B&B with comfortable rooms. The room I stayed in, Mountain Air, has great views. The bed was perfect, I slept comfortably. Would stay here again. Thank you Mike and Mirtha!

This gem is about a mile off interstate, but you feel like you are light years away. The place overlooks a cliff and has a small creek that flows thru the middle of the house. The rooms are clean, well appointed, and quite attractive. The morning breakfast was off the hook. Mike and Martha are top notch hosts. Don't miss this place.

Room Tip: Get one of the upper floor rooms that face the cliff. The view is nice.

I stayed here with 9 other family members-for a college graduation. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay. Mike and Mirtha are extremely accommodating. The staff is very attentive to their guests. The view is incredible and the food was marvelous. You must request Mike's cheesecake!

Room Tip: Be sure to reserve a room with a bluff view!

The Garden Inn was a wonderful place to stay. Beautiful, tranquil setting and scenery, this inn has warm hospitality and delicious food. We loved everything regarding this place and will return.

Room Tip: we loved the Iris for the whirlpool tub. Views from bluff view rooms are excellent.

We stayed for two nights at The Garden Inn. Our room was very nice--clean, beautifully decorated, included a fireplace and had a magnificent view. The breakfasts were delicious.
We enjoyed walking around the property, especially to Bee Rock. There are several state parks near by. We enjoyed exploring them. The only thing we missed was a larger tv to watch the Denver/Dallas game on.

We enjoyed our overnight stay at The Garden. Mike even called and told us of road conditions during our trip! He was also helpful when I made the reservations to give us the names of several places to stop for dinner before arriving at their place. Our room was nice....just like a guest bedroom in a friend's home. Our room was the Tulip room and when we woke and looked out our windows, there was a gorgeous view of forests and mountains. My husband thought the breakfast Mirtha (?) had prepared had the best eggs he had ever tasted. Everything was nice and clean. Our TV could have been larger but we were so tired, we fell asleep without watching it!

I was quite surprised when I arrived at The Garden Inn as it was very beautiful, nice and very clean. The view was awesome and the hike through the woods to Bee Rock was fun as well. I would definately come back here even if it's not for a meeting and just for a mini vacation.
