My wondeful experience at the Alps Boulder Cannyon Inn

4.4 on January 26, 2017

I stayed at the Alps Boulder Cannon Inn from 1/19/17 - 1/23/17 I stayed in the wall street room which was great!! This bed and breakfast had a real rustic feel to it with fire places in the rooms everywhere else!! which was great!. Carell worked the front desk and made the breakfast! most of the days I was there. She was awesome so warming and welcoming. All the staff was great but we all loved Carell. She was extremely polite and helpful. I would stay at the Alps without a question. Beautiful location and experience.


The Alps is sweet

My husband were married here 16 years ago. It is a nice place to stay with an excellent breakfast and beautiful fireplaces and jacuzzu baths. We had the most amazing time there for our anniversary. It's charming.


We love this place

Second time there and we in joy it the girl at the front desk was great would go back again


Quaint respite away

4.2 on October 17, 2016

The front desk was very welcoming. The hands on explanation of the front door entry system really helped. I always saw a large smile from the staff. The daily breakfast and treats were delicious and made to order. The location up the canyon, beautiful and just 2 miles from town. You felt a million miles away. I would return for a relaxing getaway.


Lovely place, great staff

4.6 on October 17, 2016

The staff was outrageously friendly and accommodating, the location was striking and felt "in the mountains" while barely being outside of town and the inn was totally charming. Breakfast was outstanding. Be warned about low water pressure and flat out nonexistent cell phone reception (good free wifi though) but do not at all let that deter you from trying this unique property.


Goos and bad parts:

3.2 on September 21, 2016

My wife and I stayed one night in mid September 2016. I found this to be a very nice place but I will list the good and bad with the good parts first: Good: We were upgraded to a room with a Jacuzzi since it was vacant and we thought that was very nice. The gal on staff seems to do all of the work as the host—handling guests, cooking and cleaning and other host activities. She said she works six days a week—when we showed up at 8pm she was baking for the next day and she was there 12 hours later to serve breakfast. The food was great, quiche, potatos and more. We were full! She did a nice job but man what a way to wear yourself out. It is a pretty lodge-type building,--a former moose lodge that was renovated by the owners. More on that below. The place was clean, and very nice inside. Outside there is a two lane road with traffic, parking is off street out in front of the inn. The outside is pretty, but our ‘patio’ was more of a sidewalk with chairs. It also doubled as storage for unused granite at the site. Another thing: While the inside is nice, finished and complete, the outside is not complete. It does not impede on the stay but there are a lot of ‘works in progress’ that are incomplete outside. Lastly, and most importantly: Our room had a “water saver’ toilet that overflowed. It is the first time I have overflowed a toilet in I-don’t-know-how-long. This is a mistake by the owners to have this here and it should be replaced. The same gal who I mentioned above came up to clean the floor. Nothing like having someone come to your room for ten minutes with chemical and clean your bathroom at a B N B If you know what I mean! An aside: The place is up for sale.


Wonderful visit

A lovely place to relax and visit. Beautiful setting – away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown but an easy five minute drive to most everything. Great staff, fabulous breakfast and all at a reasonable rate .


Wonderful Stay

3.8 on August 08, 2016

My wife and I have stayed at the Alps several times over the years and they've maintained the same high level of comfortableness and quality throughout that time. The rooms are very pleasant and comfortable, with good linens and towels. Breakfast changes daily and has always been delicious, and the treats that they leave out the front desk (such as chocolate chip cookies) are yummy. And service has always been very friendly and accommodating. The inn does show some signs of wear and tear here and there, but things are fundamentally very clean. One thing we have learned, don't get a roadside room if you want to leave the windows open overnight (which we do, especially in the summer) as road noise is then a problem (not a lot of traffic, but somewhat high speed so cars are kinda loud when they do go by).


July Alps Boulder B and B

5 on August 04, 2016

We enjoyed our weekend stay at the Alps Boulder B & B. The employees were very friendly, the room was comfortable and clean and breakfast was excellent. The only small criticism we have is that the internet was slow which for most guests would not be a concern. Other than that, we would recommend this B & B to our friends and family.


Great place to stay outside Boulder
