Best B & B EVER!

5 on August 29, 2016

We just stayed here, our very first time and I will definitely be back when we visit Idaho Springs again! This was the cleanest room we have EVER stayed in! The owner and her assistant were super friendly and helpful. Best accommodations here! Love this place!


Comfortable Room and Lovely Owner

5 on July 19, 2015

We stayed in the Quarry room for 2 nights, July 11 - 12. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The jetted tub was a wonderful bonus. Breakfast the first morning was Swedish pancakes, delicious! Morning two was a delicious egg dish with sausage and hash browns, also yummy. Vicki is a lovely person and perfect to own a B&B. She suggested a few options of things to do in the area. We decided to take the train ride and mine tour. I recommend both. For a great stay in Idaho Springs, the Miners Pick B and B is a perfect choice!


Exceeded Expectations!

We had a great experience staying at Minors Pick - Vicki was more than accommodating and helpful. She prepared delicious breakfasts for us, even with a gluten free request! Very friendly, I felt we were leaving friends upon departing. Would definitely recommend to anyone, and hope to stay there again sometime soon!


Nestled in a beautiful village

Very nice room in a lovely Inn. Vicki has thought of every thing to make our stay the best ever. I'm impressed at every turn. She is a lovely hostess and we will return!


Short Getaway

5 on February 22, 2014

My wife and I decided to take a few days for a relaxing getaway in the mountains. After reading reviews online, we decided to stay with Vicki at The Miners Pick. Vicki did a fantastic job of making us feel very welcome. Our room had all the charms of an old Victorian house but with modern conveniences. If you are looking for a getaway or are just passing through, we highly recommend staying at The Miners Pick. We will visit again and look forward to Vicki's incredible Swedish pancakes, or her banana nut muffins or whatever else she creates.


Perfect mountain retreat!

Have stayed twice now at the Miners Pick and it's everything you could want and more! Comfortably decorated, Vicki's charm is contagious and the deliciousness of her cooking will start off any day on the right foot! Looking forward to my next visit this Winter! Enjoy xx


One night at Miners Pick

5 on August 25, 2013

We arrive late a tuesday evening, so late that the owner was gone to bed. But no problem, a note at the door with the info we needed was on place :-) And with a very tasty breakfast in the morning we left for the next stop. Miners Pick Bed and Breakfast was a very nice experiance for a couple from Norway visting Colorado for the first time :-) Thank you for your hospitality Vicky! Hope to stay another time :-) And thank you for your nice email after we ordered :-)


What a Gem

My husband and I stayed at this lovely bed & breakfast. Vicki is so warm and friendly and her place is just blocks from downtown. We truly enjoyed our stay, and would stay here again. Thank you Vicki for a scrumptious breakfast and a wonderful stay.


Loved this B&B and quaint little town!

My friends and I spent one night on 11/9 and were VERY pleased with the experience. Vicki was attentive, hospitable, and gracious...and she's a FABULOUS cook!! I'm planning my next trip with my husband and can't wait to stay here again. Thank you, Vicki, for helping to make my birthday memorable! Gail C.


First Time B&B

4.2 on August 16, 2012

My husband and I were pleased with our stay. We arrived 3 hours early before check in and were very tired. The innkeeper said come to on in. We slept a bit and were then able to spend a great day in Idaho Springs. The breakfast crepes were delicious and the garden, house and bedrooms are very charming.
