Red Rocks

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

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

Restful, peaceful, quiet

A very lovely Inn! This the second time I have stayed here. The owner is lovely and a most excellent Inn Keeper. The Dove Inn itself is s lovely old home, well preserved and lovingly taken care of. The Keepers baked gluten free baked goods for my boyfriend who has Celiac's Disease and were accommodating to his diet needs completely. I will be back a third time for sure!

Fantastic place

The owner, Elizabeth, could not have been nicer. I was not feeling well and called to see if we could have an early check in. She was very accommodating. A friend came to see us and the living room was the perfect place to chat with her and enjoy a cup of tea. Our room was spacious, super clean and quiet. Breakfast was delicious! The only caution are the stairs leading to the second floor are narrow. Be careful. The next time we are in Golden, we will stay at The Dove Inn.

Special day

We were here for our wedding night. The inn keepers were so kind in helping a friend of ours arrange a surprise for us. It was lovely and a welcome gift to end a special day.

My favorite place to stay in Colorado!

The Dove Inn was an wonderful experience. From the moment I showed up Elizabeth treated me like family. The location was super quite, beds was amazingly comfortable, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend the Dove Inn if your travels ever bring you near Golden, CO. If you’re not going near Golden, consider a detour…

Clean and convenient

4.4 on May 08, 2015

The Dove Inn is super convenient to downtown Golden and Coors. It's clean and comfortable, and not too cluttered like some B&Bs can be. The rooms were a bit small and had been retrofitted for each room to have a private bathroom so the configuration was odd (shower opening into the bedroom for example). Service was outstanding - I had a couple of special requests and they were all graciously accommodated. I'd definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay

Elizabeth and her staff were amazing. I was so impressed and comfortable, that I scheduled another visit and I am writing this review.

Wonderful getaway!

Elizabeth was a great host, she has everything ready and set up, she also had a delicious breakfast. The Inn is in walking distance to the main strip, which is nice to not have to drive. The room we stayed in had a king bed and a jacuzzi, perfect to celebrate our anniversary. In fact the bed was so comfortable that we ended up getting a bed set up like it. I cannot wait to come back.
