Golden Getaway

4.6 on September 18, 2015

Never have I found a place that was so comfortable, in every way, that I wasn't ready to get home from.....until now. I didn't want to leave. The bed was the most comfortable bed (other than my own) that I have ever slept in. The food was amazing. The house has 8 guest rooms and was full the entire time we were there, but we never a noise. We spent most nights sitting outside, drinking local wine and enjoying the weather and view. The location is perfect and you can walk to EVERYTHING. I loved everything about my stay at The Dove Inn and about Golden. The food, the shopping, the wine, the history, the people, the views or the surrounding mountains, the fresh air......I miss it so and would go back in a heartbeat.....for a day....or forever!

Biking through Golden

3.2 on August 29, 2015

We spent one night at the Inn. It was quiet and clean. The breakfast was very good, but for a bicyclist it might need a few more calories. The homemade granola was outstanding. The welcome was great and we did not expect to be able to have our bike so securely stored over night - inside the house especially since it was a tandem!! Thank you for a very warn welcome and stay!

great place to stay

Beautiful home

The inn was located a short walk from town and hiking trails. It is a beautiful old house. The owner and staff are friendly and helpful. We were in town to see a concert at Red Rocks. Elizabeth was kind enough to let us borrow a blanket and ponchos. I would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was wonderful!! Homemade cookies were available anytime of day.

Great one night stay

Red Rocks

4.6 on July 14, 2015

My daughter and I were in town for a concert at Red Rocks. Golden was a perfect location for our two night stay and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dove Inn. Elizabeth loaned us a blanket for the concert and we loved having a take along water bottle in the room. I would definitely go back if in the area.

This is a great place to stay. I highly recommend.

This was a quiet bed and breakfast right off the main road in Golden. The owner was so pleasant and really went the extra mile to make me feel welcome. The room was clean and cozy with all that I needed (extra blanket, blow dryer, towels, shampoo/cond). Breakfast was served hot and delicious. There is an espresso machine available at all times. Friends of mine stayed in a hotel and spent most of their time in The Dove Inn's living room. We will all stay here next time.

Great place to feel at home

4.0 on May 30, 2015

We were in Golden only on family business and Elizabeth provides a beautiful retreat! She is wonderful and all aspects of our stay were exactly what we needed. First time in a bed and breakfast and will choose this route in the future because of our experience at Dove Inn
