Best mountain secret!

5 on March 10, 2014

Most unbelievable experience we have had in a long time. So unexpected for a new Bed and Breakfast :) Jim was such a perfect host, we can't wait to go back. The ambiance is cozy and relaxing, we came home so refreshed. The food is to die for and I can't believe this gem is only an hour from Denver. Can't wait to book our next trip.
