When Deputy Sheriff W.T. Bross opened the Bross Hotel in 1906, it was considered "the only really first-class hotel in the county". Now it has been renovated with an eye to the period in which it was built. It retains the ambiance of the turn-of-the-twentieth-century as it enters the twenty-first century. This legendary North Fork Valley hostelry remains the only really first class hotel in Delta County offering 10 rooms with private baths, gourmet breakfasts, a hot tub, and conference room for meetings of 3 to 30 people.
These rooms have king size beds which can be split into twins. Private bath. Other amenities include telephone with dual hook-up for dial-up internet. Rooms do not have TV, but there is a lounge area with TV (cable), videos, internet access, library, games. Outdoor hot tub.

We have stayed at this B&B many times. The Innkeepers are always extremely friendly, the rooms are extremely clean, the breakfasts are very good. This is the ONLY place to consider staying while in Paonia.

I've stayed here every year from the time it opened, and have never been disappointed. I'd say 90% of us are "repeats" for the annual BMW m/c rally. We are treated like kings and queens! Very classy place.

At the Bross Hotel the renovators kept just the right amount of the old charm and put in the right amount of new amenities -- like new showers and bathrooms. Very clean & friendly.
