Situated at an elevation of 10,000 with views of the Colorado Rockies and 14,000' peaks - Brooklyn Mining is an escape like no other. Private suite, luxurious sauna, screening room and professional chef are just a few reasons our guests return over and over again. We are a green facility, powered by solar, with access to downhill and cross country skiing, hiking, mountain bike trails, hunting, and sight seeing in local historic mining towns. Did we mention the gourmet food? People generally don't leave here hungry!

A Unique Experience

4.4 on August 03, 2014

Eric and Terry were wonderful hosts. The location is phenomenal, but please read the directions they send you and adhere to them! Do not rely on your GPS! Very cosy room, excellent food and the humming bird experience was something else. T&S

Well, that was awesome!

The other reviews are spot on -- this is an amazing find! In addition to what the other reviews say, I noticed that Terry is exceptional at _anticipating_ needs. Two examples: It was a special occasion, so I brought with us a bottle of champagne. I called Terry before we left to make sure she had champagne flutes (she did, of course) and when we arrived not only was there space in the fridge for my bottle, but she also had the flutes and a wine chiller bucket all ready in the fridge. After the excellent pizza dinner, my wife mentioned off hand that she was excited about the sauna. After relaxing on the porch for awhile, she wondered if Terry had heard her and went to check -- Terry had already turned it on, and it was ready to go. She is present if necessary but not obtrusive at all: I can't say enough good things about this place!

Welcoming and beautiful retreat

Beautiful off the beaten path. Eric and Terry are wonderful hosts. Breakfast and dinner were delicious and all you can eat turned isn't more than you can eat every time. The views are amazing and plenty of opportunities for hiking (or strolling) and exploring.

A wonderful place to stay!

Whatever your reason to go, this is the place to go! Beautiful location, outstanding meals and warm and welcoming innkeepers. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the best we've visited in Colorado! Quiet, relaxing more than we expected. It is all the website promises.

It was an absolute treat! My wife and I have never done a bed and breakfast before and we were blown away by the hospitality. We had an absolute wonderful time. I would recommend the Brooklyn mining Co. to anyone!!

Best people and best place

I am overcome with emotion when i think about the hospitality that was offered to me and my family. Eric and is beautiful family are quite simply a beam of light. The generosity of these amazing people is so very rare in todays world. If you ever have a chance to go to their home consider yourself blessed. The gorgeous mountain property is second only to the people who reside in it.

An unforgettable trip for a newly engaged couple!

Our stay at the Brooklyn Mining Co. exceeded our expectations! Eric, Terry, and their two boys went above and beyond to make our stay absolutely perfect. The highlight of our trip was getting engaged during our first night at the Brooklyn Mining Co.! Eric and Terry took a simple request to take a picture after a surprise proposal outdoors amidst the mountains to a different level! The evening we arrived at the Brooklyn Mining Co., our hosts took us to the most beautiful place you could imagine, close by their property. Eric cooked a gourmet meal beside us while we sat at a lovely table set for two, sipped wine, and marveled at the picturesque mountain scenery. Eric captured highlights of our romantic mountain top meal and proposal on video. Later that evening, we were able to view the video of our proposal in their home movie theater! Talk about a dream come true! The next few days, we felt so pampered! Our hosts were so genuine and hospitable. They seemed truly delighted to have us staying in their home. The spectacular views, the delectable food, and good company contributed to an unforgettable trip! We highly recommend the Brooklyn Mining Co. to anybody looking to experience a unique and romantic getaway. Joe & Maura

We had never been to such a fully inclusive bed and breakfast. The breakfast was delicious and the views were so beautiful we scheduled another trip for Fall. We cant wait to see our hosts again and get some much needed r&r.

Great experience!

My wife and I had never been to a bed and breakfast prior to our stay at Brooklyn Mining Company. Terry and Eric were wonderful to us. My wife had special dietary needs and Terry was more than accommodating to them. The property was beautiful and we were led on a nice walk by Leo. After our walk, we came back for some great pizza and conversation. The room was cute and very clean. Breakfast was another very tasty meal with more great conversation. I will definitely recommend Brooklyn Mining Company to my friends.

Amazing from head to toe!

Ted & Christina's review - We were looking for a B&B that would provide a wonderful experience for us on our honeymoon. Brooklyn Mining Co. did not disappoint! The scenery is gorgeous, the home is amazing and so are it's inhabitants! Eric, Terry and their sons Tuck and Hunter were nothing short of amazing hosts. They welcomed us into their home and family as if it were our own. Not to be left out, the food was also great! Eric and Terry definitely know their way around a kitchen. Everything was very tasty and had a gourmet flair. Also, dinner was accompanied with a bottle of wine of our choice for each night that we stayed. As far as surroundings, there are some great trails around and their dog Leo will gladly stroll along with you if you chose to explore. We also enjoyed a movie in the theatre room along with some popcorn and ice cream. My wife and I finished our stay with a complimentary cigar the evening before our departure, which was nice as well. We highly recommend this B&B and will definitely be returning!
