My husband and I enjoyed staying at this terrific B & B. The location is fabulous - 1 block off the Main Street (Grand Ave.), yet you feel like you're in the country. We enjoyed reading on their front porch with the scent of lilacs wafting by with every breeze. The landscaping is impeccable (the nicest on the block) and... More

Eliza & David are wonderful! We enjoyed the Boudiar room, which has its own hall and bathroom. Eliza's breakfasts were delicious and filled with warm conversation. The location is great, because it's tucked back off of the main street, so it's quiet. We walked everywhere we went; the tram and adventure park, the hot springs pool and shopping. We highly...

I stayed for a total of five nights. The owners, Liza and David, were extremely nice and knowledgeable of the area in and around Glenwood Springs. The best location and accommodations that I've experienced in Glenwood Springs. You won't be disappointed.

We were coming in somewhat late from Aspen and needed a place to stay; happened on this little gem. I loved our room - it was spacious but cozy with two walls of old and interesting books.

Couldn't have been better. David and Liza are very nice and know everything about the town. The rooms are comfortable, and the extra perks (hot tub, laundry) were great. I'd recommend it to anyone, especially people I like.

My husband and I stayed with Liza and David for 3 nights and felt thoroughly pampered. The breakfasts were truly delicious, the accommodations quiet and restful, and we will definitely be back. There is a lovely hot tub with gorgeous mountain views. Liza suggested attending the Glenwood Vaudeville Review and helped confirm our reservations. Very gracious hosts!

Liza made the most scrumptious breakfast! And the Boudoir room was cozy, romantic and just the ticket. Liza was a great host and he knowledge of the Glenwood Sprigs area made this retereat effortless for my wife and I. Good Food, Great host and a hot tub to boot - what's not to love?
