We loved this place. Our room was clean and charming with a large jacuzzi tub. I really liked that coffee and tea were always available in the upstairs lounge. Norma and Bob were very hospitable and can cook a mean breakfast - we had eggs, bacon, waffles, fruit, orange juice, coffee and tea. There were interesting books and artwork throughout... More

We just finished staying at this delightful B&B for 16 days while skiing in the Aspen area. This was our second consecutive year that we have stayed at the Ambiance Inn, and have thoroughly enjoyed each time. Norma cooks an outstanding breakfast each morning that fills you up until the middle of the afternoon. Both Bob and Norma do everything... More

The Ambience Inn is truly a diamond in the ruff. Norma and Bob are great hosts and the breakfasts are truly awesome. We stayed here while skiing Aspen, and we will stay here again next time we come skiing.

Norma and Bob are gracious hosts. They made my stay feel like my home away from home. The Sonoma Room was clean, spacious and relaxing with a great bed and shower. Breakfast was homemade and tasted delicious. The Ambiance Inn is part of the Carbondale charm and I highly recommend it. Rick V, Wisconsin

This is probably our 5th or 6th visit. We return every couple of years to this charming B & B with personable hosts, Norma & Bob. The rooms are well appointed, the location is great and the breakfasts are super. if you plan on visiting the Carbondale area, this is the place to stay.
