Reviewed 27 August 2013

This little gem is charming and homey both inside and out. The natural landscaping showed much planning, with flowers everywhere. We relaxed on the front porch every day. Inside, I felt like Eliza and Dave were opening their house to us, with books, snacks, tea or coffee always available. We stayed in the library room and were quite comfortable. The...

This is a secret get away, but I don't believe it will stay secret for long. Visiting my son and family whose house is too small to accommodate us, so we stayed with Eliza and David. The absolute best thing about our stay was breakfast every morning. It was beautifully presented and delicious. I was glad we were in no...

My husband and I are expecting our first baby in two months, so we decided to take an affordable and leisurely getaway we would remember. Best Kept Secret and the Glenwood therapy pool were just what we needed! We stayed in the charming little Boudoir and enjoyed the hot tub nestled in a private corner of the garden. The guests...

My husband and I arrived in Glenwood Springs without any hotel reservations and amazingly found a vacancy at Best Kept Secret. We ended up staying for 2 nights. There are only 2 rooms in the house and we were lucky enough to get to stay in each room. The library room was a larger room with a smallish (but very...

We had a great time at Glenwood Springs and at the Best Kept Secret B&B. We had 6 people (2 adults, 2 of our kids, and niece and nephew) and had both rooms, and dining room and living room and 2 baths. All beds were comfortable (including sleeper sofa, according to nephew), and we slept very well. Temperature was always...

My friend and I stayed in the Boudoir room and loved it! It's cozy, but with the hallway and big bathroom, gives you more than enough space. Eliza and David were great hosts, and you can't beat the location. You can walk to town in about two minutes! Highly recommmend!
