The Florence Rose Bed & Breakfast, built in 1886 has been beautifully restored and maintains its architectural integrity. The "Rose" offers a memorable experience with a combination of antique treasures and a highly personalized level of exceptional guest services. We are located in Florence, Colorado, an Arts and Antiques mecca as well as minutes from Canon City, home to the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park and Royal Gorge Railroad, White-water rafting, horseback riding and incredible hiking trails. All of our 5 Victorian rooms have a PRIVATE BATH. We offer a welcome tea/beverage upon your arrival, a historical tour of our 126 year old home, each morning at 8:30, we serve a 3 course, hot, homecooked breakfast, and you are welcome to use our seculded outdoor hot tub gazebo.

This is our Swetheart/Wedding room, filled with beautiful antiques and queen size brass bed. It's private bath, has all original fixtures, including claw foot bath tub, makes for a truly unique romantic night.
Beautifuly filled with antique's and classic pictures, this is one of our most popular rooms, the hardwood floor, and vintage wallpaper, take you back to the way life was in 1886. The only hint of modern day, is the private, bathroom, with walk-in shower.
The largest of our rooms, filled with turn of the century antiques, and canopy bed. The Yvonne Room's private bath, includes a tub and shower. Behind the hallway's full length mirror, is a door that opens to an adjoining room, if you would like a 2 room suite.
Perhaps the most quaint of all our rooms. The angled walls, make this bay window room feel bright and airy. Charmingly decorated, the private bath, located just across the hall, includes a full tub and shower.

We are always amazed when we find a B&B which is pet friendly. Bob and Barbara have the "Garden Room" which is its very own Villa set aside for guests with animals. It was fantastic right off of the beautiful patio, with the hot tub behind (under a beautiful veranda), surrounded by plenty of space to walk your pup. Bob and Barbara are extremely friendly and personable and their home is exquisite! We would certainly stay again if we find ourselves in the Florence area.

We had two "special needs" dogs with us and Barb & Bob rose to the occasion. Their pet friendly room is ideal if someone is traveling with pets; it is the former "summer kitchen" of the house, so is separate, yet part of the B&B. Very convenient to let the dogs out. One of our dogs is diabetic, and the innkeepers' accommodation for our refrigerating needs was above & beyond. Food was wonderful, and we loved the lack of a TV. It forced us into the lovely yard and patio area---and did I mention the trees?! Highly recommend this as THE place to stay in the Canon City area! A "destination" all on its own.

They are so warm and welcoming! The house is beautiful and has an incredible history. The breakfast was so good. We didn't want to leave!

We just stayed here for 4 nights for a conference. We rented out the whole house. Honestly I thought it was just a place to stay and wasn't expecting much. We were all surprised to find that this ended up being the highlight of our week. This is such a gem. The house is beautiful and the hosts Bob and Bard truly have a gift of hospitality. We enjoyed our cozy rooms and the patio with hot tub. Our favorite part was the delicious breakfast served each morning. We are already trying to figure out when we can come back.

We stayed for two nights at the Florence Rose Bed and Breakfast and had a great time. The place is adorable, the food is AMAZING and the hosts are incredible. The room was comfortable and cozy- the only downside was that the bathroom for our room was across the hall, and I wasn't aware of that before I chose that room. Also, there weren't TVs in the rooms, which surprised me. Other than that, place was absolutely perfect.

The house is incredible and our hosts were welcoming. The house is full of classic charm and features, yet still comfortable and updated just enough. Our room was extremely comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed a good night sleep and then breakfast with our hosts and other guests...a yummy breakfast and good conversation. There is a semi private back patio that would have been a great place to just sit and read for hours.

Our parents had come down for their Anniversary and had a great stay. They loved it so much they sent us for our 17 Anniversary. We were mot disappointed! We were met by Both Bib and Barb at the door and welcomed with offers of drinks and a tour of the place. They got us settled in and gave us directions to dinner. After a delicious dinner at the Canon City Queen Anne, we enjoyed the wonderful hot tub under the gazebo. Just the right mix of outdoor and indoor. Robes were provided for our short walk back to our room. The room was well appointed and very nice. Breakfast was again delicious and they remembered that I was a tea drinker and had a pot ready for me. Overall, a great experience and I would recommend them to anyone looking for great lodging in the Florence area.

The whole experience of staying at the Florence Rose from the warm and hospitable greeting in the old victorian hallway to the breakfast the following morning couldnt have been any nicer..Ive always wanted to shower in an early victorian claw foot bath tub shower,with the early brass fixtures,and surround shower curtain,and the Rose provided that.What a giggle!Our hosts , Bob and Barb,plied us whit complementary glasses of wine while enjoying a Bronco's game in the sitting room,with friends of theirs.we were made to feel like family.. The atmosphere in our room lent itself to the interesting history of its past including a marriage that took place in that room.Our room was even an operating room when the home was used for hospitalization of returning war veterans....Ive already been bragging about our fun experience at the Rose to friends and highly recommend it to others...Thanks Barb and Bob for making our stay with you such a nice anniversary memory...
