Very nice

The room and location were great. The best part was Judy and Dennis.

Quirky but comfortable

4.4 on May 19, 2016

My entire family stayed here for Colorado School of Mines graduation. We had all of the rooms booked except one (the Violet room I think). It was a wonderful base of operations for us and we could sit outside on the patio as a family and relax and visit. Some of the rooms are a bit quirky, given that they are retrofitted with modern amenities in an older house (in particular, tiny showers that were hard to use). The only room that really didn't meet our expectations was the Carriage House Suite. The ceiling is sloped awkwardly, the quarters are cramped, and there is not any A/C to help the room cool down. The owners are delightful and breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed gathering each morning for breakfast and visiting with the other guests and our hosts. My son is continuing on to complete his masters degree and we will be visiting the B&B again when he graduates next time!

Great quaint b&b

We had a great stay at the Silk Pincushion. It is a small, intimate bed and breakfast with two friendly and easygoing hosts. The Green Room was comfortable, with plenty of light and air. Breakfast was delicious! And they accommodated us being vegetarian. Thanks for a great weekend!

A pleasant few days

The Silk Pincushion provides a great place to stay close to what's on in Golden. If you only need to visit Golden, you don't need to drive. The owners of the BnB provide great hospitality and conversation. They are very helpful and courteous. I would recommend this BnB to anyone who likes a bit of old world charm and has had enough of the sterile modernity of most hotel chains.

Delightful get away

Stayed one night in the beautiful lavender room. Perfect girl get away spot. Breakfast was delicious and filling. Perfect for my day. Bed comfy. I wish I had more than one night there!

Victorian B&B

4.4 on March 23, 2016

The owners are really nice people, and help you if you need anything. The breakfast was also delicious and homemade.The room was Victorian style and beautiful, plus clean. However, in the night you might hear other visitors' foot steps clearly as you are indeed staying at the same home.

Excellent Stay!

We will definitely stay here each time we come to Golden. Our son is a junior at Mines and we've been coming to Golden for several years. I wish that I had found this B&B sooner. I have stayed at three other great locations, but this is definitely my favorite. The breakfasts were incredible!!! The innkeepers are so pleasant, friendly, helpful...just a joy to be around. I was especially grateful for the easy access to our our room since my mother has difficulty with stairs. We had an extremely handicap accessible room without having specific modifications. Beautiful new room!

Wedding night

5 on November 14, 2015

This was a wonderful experience for our wedding night. We stayed in the new queen suite which was decorated beautifully. My wife loved the room and we enjoyed the light of the fireplace. The owners were absolutely wonderful to us. Very nice folks. Dennis greeted us and showed us the property and was just the nicest person. We will definitely go again for an overnight stay.

FABULOUS stay at the Silk Pin Cushion B&B in Golden Colorado.

My room was lovely, quiet and private. Judy and Dennis were welcoming, generous and helpful. The most amazing part of the stay was the wonderful gluten-free breakfast that Judy made. Five star definitely.

Adorable B&B in a great location for Golden, CO

My husband and I recently stayed here and had a lovely time. The owners are very nice and made a delicious breakfast (included in your stay). The house is very cute and comfortable, complete with modern amenities like cable and a/c, but also homey touches that fit with the somewhat Victorian architecture of the home. Would definitely stay here again. Only issue is that the wifi isn't fabulous--was fine for checking email, but not much more than that.
