1686 Mitchell Creek Road , Glenwood Springs, CO 81601 USA (Show map)


Privacy, solitude and romance. Delicious, hearty breakfasts are included in your room rate, and are served outside on the deck. Wake up to the sounds of nature and a rushing mountain stream. Perfectly located on two acres of land and only six minutes from downtown Glenwood Springs. Two spacious, warm, romantic suites with private entrance and private full baths awaits your arrival. Personal service is our intent as we accommodate only two sets of special guests per night. When you've finished with your day unwind in the famous Hot Springs Pool and/or dine in one of Glenwood Springs' fine restaurants. But wait, you're not done yet. Grab a bottle of wine and enjoy your own private campfire down by the stream. How romantic is that? We are simply Glenwood's best!

What a find!

4.8 on August 02, 2016

We found the Mitchell Creek B&B totally by accident, and boy did we luck out! Stan was courteous and friendly, even going so far as to give us a bottle of wine! The rooms were clean, the views breathtaking, and falling asleep to the sounds of the Creek while tucked away in the Canyon, well, it's something we'll never forget.

Spa Weekend

Our stay with Stan at Mitchell Creek did not disappoint. The room was excellent and the breakfast was simply amazing. Stan made us feel welcome and shared some of his life experiences that made us laugh. Mitchell Creek is a great place hide away in the hillside.

Fun get away

I stayed here with my two daughters. The room was very spacious for all three of us. Stan was an excellent host providing us with a few forgotten toiletries and drying our pool towels. Breakfast was AMAZING and fit for a king. Can't wait to come again.

Off the Beaten Path

4.2 on August 14, 2015

We selected the Mitchell Creek BnB for a 3 night stay and it was a delightful treat. The BnB, tucked away in the canyon, off the main road and away from the hustle and bustle of Glenwood Springs offers a quiet location in a peaceful setting, off the beaten path, yet just a few minutes drive from downtown. Upon our previously arranged late night arrival we were graciously greeted by Stan Host/Owner of Mitchell Creek BnB, who gave us a quick tour of the BnB, showed us to our room and pointed out the magnificent view of the Milky Way from the back deck. Our first morning started earlier than most and upon a pre-arranged time Stan was up and about preparing a full breakfast complete with delicious baked Omelets, fresh fruit, bacon and English muffins. During breakfast we were able to chat with Stan, who provided fabulous ideas, details and restaurant suggestions for our stay, as well as history of the area and BnB. Day two started with breakfast at the designated time. Stan prepared yet another scrumptious meal of Pecan French Toast, grilled Sausage and fresh fruit medley and served guests in the shade of the back deck. Though the 2nd room was booked during our stay, this was the only time we bumped into the other guests. We opted for an insanely early start on our final day and were disappointed that we would miss the next fabulous morning creation Stan prepared, but found our hike to Hanging Lake would not have been the same had we started later in the day. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious and though being located on the front side of the house, still offered privacy with the added benefit of the rushing creek just steps away. The BnB itself offered a quiet natural setting and a common area patio/fire pit down by the creek that was truly an enjoyable feature in the evenings. We were very pleased with our stay at the Mitchell Creek BnB and would recommend this for anyone seeking a quick, peaceful getaway!

Quiet and remote location

Lovely setting with abundant hummingbirds. Very helpful host. Loved the creekside location and opportunity to build our own outdoor fire. Nice, tucked away location for privacy.
