Lovely Getaway

4.8 on December 04, 2013

My husband and I always enjoy our annual trip here. Such wonderful service, great room (Magnolia) facing the mountains, & a huge bath tub in the middle of the room. It's very romantic and the staff is amazing.

Fabulous Host and Lovely Setting

4.6 on June 02, 2013

Elegant rooms, gorgeous victorian property. Super accommodating staff and a great breakfast. A coffee maker in the room would have made this a 25 star review!

A Delightful Rustic Experience

4.6 on March 22, 2013

The Magnolia room was everything we had hoped for- cozy feeling in a spacious suite. We even had a chance to enjoy the in-room soaking tub and fireplace! The people who run the hotel are sweet, attentive, but unimposing and the food was yummy. We booked a room at the Inn in order to take advantage of the proximity to Eldora Mountain Ski Resort, but ended up loving our time there just for its own relaxing atmosphere.

Love the Boulder Canyon !

Our Stay at the Alps Boulder Canyon Inn was FANTASTIC! The workmanship that was put in the restoration of the lodge was expert and the rooms, food and hospitality were excellent. I had the pleasure of meeting the owners and could see why the Alps Boulder Canyon Inn has become such a success! I highly recommend staying at this Inn if your are wanting a Colorado expierence.
