Just like the Secret Garden in the novel, this place seems magical. The garden is the perfect place to sit, relax, and take in the awe of Colorado's breathtaking mountains. Sara's food is spectacular: quiche AND pancakes for breakfast one morning and French toast soufflé the next. The rooms are charming and reflect Sara's warm and welcoming personality. I feel...

From the moment I walked in Sara, the proprietor, made me feel at home. The garden is quite lovely and a respite from the world beyond the white iron gates. Sara's breakfasts were delicious. I especially liked the vegetarian quiche and homemade jam made from fruit trees in the "secret garden". Sara's charm and hospitality are the best I've ever...

The grounds of this B&B are quiet and peaceful. The rooms are nicely decorated, clean, and well kept. Sara, the owner, is gracious and an award winning chef. I stayed here on a ride up to and back from Salem OR and it's the nicest place I've stayed in Ouray so far.

Sarah and her crew offer a great B&B experience at an excellent value. We were greeted with a happy hour featuring wine and snacks. The grounds at Secret Garden are landscaped beautifully and the back porch is particularly great. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Sarah makes a hearty breakfast. Highly recommend this B&B in Ouray.

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Secret Garden. It is a beautiful property close to the river and walking distance from most everything. The bed was comfortable and the host, Sara, was very accommodating. Sara seems to have thought of everything you need - she offers towels to take to the hot springs, bath robes to use...

Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind review. We do try hard! I believe you stayed in the Devonshire Room. With no real cross-ventilation to speak of, that room is definitely our "warmest." I do have a few small fans in there but your comments tell me that I need a bigger fan that will fit inside the...

Just finished a three-day conference in Ouray and stayed at the Secret Garden. Loved the warmth and charm of the B&B and my cozy, comfy room. Sara anticipated my every need. She also catered a breakfast and lunch for over 300 people flawlessly. Her attention to detail cannot me overstated. I look forward to staying at the Secret Garden again....

We can't say enough about the Secret Garden B&B - our recent visit was absolutely wonderful. Sara was welcoming and made our whole family feel at home throughout our stay in Ouray. The B&B is as quiet and restful as it appears from the website. We enjoyed the delicious breakfasts, the relaxing common area, the hot tub, the beautiful deck,...

So in my last review I definitely wanted to come back to the Secret Garden, but didn't know when/if it'd ever happen. Two years later, it did. My fiancé and I were planning our honeymoon and he said he wanted to go to Colorado. I said "well, I know a place..." I emailed Sara and she remembered me from 2...
