A Quick Escape From it All

4.4 on January 15, 2015

If you're looking for an escape from the crowds of Boulder or the mountain resorts, this is the place for you. A quick 10 minute drive from Boulder keeps you within reach of entertainment and a range of dining options, but allows you to escape it all and relax in a nice warm bath at the end of the day. The friendly personalized service and cozy ambiance just add to the relaxation. Would recommend this to anyone looking to relax for a weekend, but not quite "get away from it all"

Our wonderful Boulder Getaway!

My wife and I stayed at this delightful bed and breakfast for 1 night. We are looking forward to saying there again soon!

Very Friendly, Nicely Appointed Inn

The room, 210 Eldora, was very inviting with an over-sized bathroom and fireplace. A door opened to the outside patio with just a short walk to the hot tub. The reception/living area was comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and the staff very friendly and accommodating.

Definitely will go back

Stayed one night to spend time in Boulder with friends so we didn't spend much time at the Inn. Definitely want to go back and spend more time in the relaxing environment.

Enjoyed our stay.

3.0 on October 14, 2014

Nice place; met expectations. The fireplace in the room was great. A broken chain on the toilet may not seem like a big deal but being told to "just reach inside the tank and pull" was a bit much. Nice people at the front desk; excellent breakfast were the high points. Also, could you add a small entry sign at the driveway entrance? It's especially hard to see at night; in the rain.

great location for travel into the canyon

Thank you for a nice stay at a great location

Very enjoyable

The B&B is a rustic looking but modernized place in picturesque Boulder Canyon only a few miles from Boulder. The room was as pictured on the web site. In spite of the proximity to the highway we did not hear highway noise from our room. The breakfast was delicious! The staff was very hospitable and helpful. The Jacuzzi worked fine after we figured out how to use the switch but you might want to ask for instructions. The place is up for sale, so visit soon!

Wonderful vintage Inn.

4.4 on August 24, 2014

The Inn is just what I had hoped. Vintage feel. We slept with our windows open and could hear the river rushing by. The food was wonderful.

Great place to stay if you don't want a hotel

4.0 on August 13, 2014

The Alps is a great place to stay if you don't want stay at a hotel. The overall look of the Alps is a bit "tired", but very comfortable. Our room had a nice balcony with a little bench which was nice for getting some fresh air in the evening. The breakfast was very good as was the supply of cookies at the front desk. The location is also very nice, just a few minutes out of downtown Boulder.

A very comfortable stay

4.0 on August 07, 2014

We stayed at this inn one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The room was very clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed the back patio in the evening. The innkeepers were very accommodating, and the evening dessert (homemade key lime pie) was a nice touch! It was in a great location, just outside of town - quiet even though along the main road. Some may consider it too 'rustic' but I always prefer inns with some charm & character over austere chain hotels. Would definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity to visit Boulder again in the future.
