We were there to celebrate our anniversary. Whenever we had questions regarding the area, Judy and Dennis were VERY helpful with lots of information. They were very friendly and accommodating towards us. We felt "at home" with them and their beautiful home that they shared with us and others. The breakfasts were simply delicious and more than what we had imagined. We even had fun playing with their cat "Maggie." I definitely would recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to stay in this area. I, myself, hope to return there again someday! Thank you, Judy and Dennis!!! It was wonderful.

Innkeeper Response

awesome B&B

This was our first stay in a B&B and it was perfect! When we first arrived we found our room spotless and very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. Waking up the next morning to the smell of coffee brewing in the kitchen was perfect. The breakfast Judy prepared was fantastic! We stayed 3 nights and couldn't wait to see was for breakfast each morning, never the same. We will be back!!!

Off the Grid while working

I travel for work and often tire of chain hotels and ids home. Judy's home was an ideal stop over for a few days - comfy room, quiet streets, a lovely walk from campus - IDEAL! I hope to return soon!

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad to have the privilege of meeting so many people that attend the facilities of the School of Mines

Business Trip To Denver

4.8 on September 17, 2014

I had a 2 day business trip to Denver scheduled and my wife wanted to go. We had previously spent a day in Golden and she wanted to return. We found the Silk Pincushion and I'm glad we did. The price was reasonable, especially compared to area hotels, the room was comfortable, and it's just a couple of blocks from downtown or the Coors tour. Breakfast was fine, and Judy and Dennis make both gracious hosts as well as great breakfast companions. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to the Denver area. Jeff and Beverly
