Charming Bed and Breakfast

4.6 on July 06, 2018

Great location in a charming little town an hour from Denver. Vicki was a great hostess! Comfortable room, delicious homemade breakfast, and walking distance to shops and restaurants. We loved the little town of Idaho Springs and would definitely recommend staying here.

Fun night in Idaho Springs

4.6 on November 29, 2017

We stayed here last week and found the whole Bed and Breakfast experience very relaxing and enjoyable. Our breakfast was timely and the food was very tasty. I felt like I had been there before. I would totally go back to the Miners Pick!! Great job........

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the review! My goal is to create a space that feels like "Home" but without the work. It makes my heart sing when a guest comes away feeling like they have been cared for. I wish you all the best.

One of the best B&B's I've ever stayed in, the owner is wonderful, and though the town is undergoing construction it's quite charming. Great place to stay if you are skiing Loveland on a budget.

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!

5 on August 08, 2014

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

5 on August 05, 2014

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!

5 on September 29, 2013

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

5 on February 12, 2013

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!

5 on November 11, 2012

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.

A Wonderful Anniversary Venue

5 on August 08, 2012

We spent two nights at Miners Pick to celebrate our anniversary. The accommodations were excellent. The B&B was only a few blocks from the downtown area of Idaho Springs so we were able to walk to the shops and restaurants. Vicki is a wonderful cook and hostess. She helped us with restaurant recommendations and gave us a number of recommendations for how to spend our day in the area. We highly recommend Miners Pick and plan to stay there again.

Wonderful Little Gem

5 on August 08, 2012

We stayed for two nights in March 2012 and loved every minute. The room was immaculate. The food was exceptional. Vicki was a delight. Highly recommended!

Great Location For All Mountain Activities

5 on June 21, 2012

We enjoyed our stay with Vicki so much. She gave us great ideas for activiities and we were even within walking distance to the Historic Downtown with quaint shops and many fine restaurants. Her breakfast was delicious, plentiful, and beautifully presented. We are looking at our calandar to plan our stay for next year.

Just right for a weekend escape

3.0 on June 15, 2012

My wife and I enjoyed spending our weekend here. The breakfast was very good (though maybe a little small in my opinion), and our room was comfortable and clean. Vicki was a personable and hospitable hostess, and overall the Miner's Pick was just what we were looking for: an affordable B&B in the mountains, yet only a 30 minute drive from Denver.

Highly recommend!

5 on February 27, 2012

Beautiful, clean, quaint, quiet, and peaceful with fantastic hospitality and a 4 star breakfast. The lady who runs it is a doll. makes you feel right at home. Perfect location, close to shops & restaurants. I would highly recommend!

Superb first experience

4.8 on September 20, 2011

We couldn't have asked for more! Vicki has made her inn like a wonderfully comfortable home. She gave us the perfect blend of making us feel welcome and of giving us privacy.

The best little weekend getaway...Idaho Spriongs

5 on September 15, 2011

This was our first Bed & Breakfast stay...we will definitely repeat our stay. Vicki made us feel very at home...and breakfast was superb. Yummy whole wheat cinnamon/raisin french toast...fresh local peaches, scrambled eggs and sausage...juice and coffee. We ate every bite! The jacuzzi tub was delightful, and the special handcrafted soap was wonderful. The shopping, all within walking distance from the B&B, was alot of fun too. Be sure to look up Asta Lovely at the local cafe/coffee roastery and pick up some fresh roasted beans! The Soap Shop was another of our favorite shops. Thanks, Vicki!

One of the best placees to stay.

5 on August 08, 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Miners Pick for two nights in June of 2011. We have stayed in many B&B's and this is one of the very best. Our room was perfect and our hostess, Vicki, was excellent company and very accommodating. We will go back. Don't miss this one!!!!

Great Place!

5 on July 19, 2011

Wife, Son and I stayed while attending Central City Opera. Wonderful home, lovely rooms, friendly atmosphere. Vickie makes you feel right at home and the breakfast was filling, tasty, and healthy. We'll be back!

Already booked return trip

5 on June 15, 2011

Vicki is a wonderful host. Really enjoyed my stay. Coming back in July 2011 and picked the vacation dates based on the availability of the room. It's just like being a guest in her home.

Wonderful & Relaxing

3.6 on April 01, 2011

My wife and I had a great, relaxing time at the Miners Pick! Would recommend it to anyone.

Great Service

4.6 on January 01, 2011

My wife and I stayed in several B&B's during our 2008 Colorado vacation. The Placer Room at Miner's Pick is where we stayed the first night. Overall, it was the best B&B we booked for our trip and was not the most expensive one either. The hospitality of the hostess was very good and the house was also clean. Their was a cat on the premises, but the cat was practically unnoticed and I tend to be allergic to them (literally). Some people may be concerned that the TV was shared in the upstairs common room, but I don't visit the mountains to watch TV so it wasn't a concern for me. Also, I don't think the house had A/C, but due to the elevation cracking a window provided enough air despite it being early July. Overall, I highly recommend Miner's Pick and would stay again if visiting the area.

A Perfect Week

4.8 on October 13, 2010

Our week's stay at The Miner's Pick was wonderful. Vicki's cooking and hospitality can't be beat. Our guest room was perfectly clean and comfortable. We'll be heading there again next year!

Outstanding Visit!

5 on September 14, 2010

Vicki and her two cats were wonderful host. We will definitely stay there again! We loved it!


5 on July 08, 2010

This was the first B&B experience for my husband and me ! It topped all expectations !! Our room was very cozy and clean ! Vicki was a charming hostess and her breakfasts are out of this world ! We had planed a trip to Pikes Peak and we wanted to leave very early , but Vicki had the most amazing breakfast ready for us at 6:00 o'clock!! We know , we'll be back !

The Miner's Pick was...

4.8 on March 29, 2010

our first experience with a B&B! Tha day after we made our reservation, Vicki contacted us to get personal details that would improve her service to us. When we got there, the house was so warm and cozy...we felt like we were walking into someone's home! Our room was beautiful! Our night was comfortable and peaceful and worth every penny of they very low price we paid!!! Oh and our breakfast...coffee, juice, grilled pears, swedish crepes and sausage was fabulous, cooked to order and served to us at a beautiful dining-room table , in front of a toasty fire, when we were ready to eat!!! We are now believers in the B&B experience!!! Vicki...You Rock!!!

Pleasant Surprise

5 on March 23, 2010

A Spring Snow Storm brought us to the Miner's Pick B & B. Vicki was very helpful and allowed us to check in early to get out of the snow. This is one of the best B & B's I have ever visited. Vicki is a wonderful hostess and the breakfast was fabulous. The rooms are roomy, clean, and very comfortable as well as beautifully decorated. I will stay here again on one of my next travels to Colorado.

Great place to stay!

5 on March 21, 2010

A spring snowstorm almost kept us from staying at the Miner's Pick. We originally had a reservation for Friday night but the snow kept us from making it. Vicki was so kind, letting us cancel for Friday and reschedule for Saturday instead. When we arrived, we were loved the Quarry room. The bed was so comfortable. The oversized jetted tub was wonderful after a hike at Echo Lake. Breakfast was excellent. We are already planning our next stay at The Miner's Pick.

Miner's Pick a delight

4.4 on March 19, 2010

Vicki and her cat, whose name escapes me, are very warm hosts. The room was nice and very well kept. The tub was wonderful and breakfast was great. My only regret was we only had one nite to spend in such a nice setting.

1st B&B experience has us hooked now!

5 on January 11, 2010

This was our (wife & I) first time at a B&B and it was outstanding! Vicki was an exceptional host! We arrived late Christmas night and she so helpful getting us into our room and preparing hot tea for us! The next morning her crepes were out of this world...it was the perfect start to a long day of skiing and boarding! I am now hooked on the B&B experience...and it has everything to do with this B&B! The service was outstanding!!

The Best Respite Ever!

5 on January 06, 2010

Life is too hectic, so I wanted to start 2010 by taking care of myself. What a wonderful stay-2 nights-1 block from dining and shops, hiking in the mountains, short drive to skiing. Best break ever! I should do this more often. Thanks Vicki!

Great Getaway off I-70

5 on January 02, 2010

This is our second time at the Miners Pick and it sure did not disappoint! The room was as beautiful as ever, complete with antique bath! Vicki was as sweet as ever and treated us to Swedish pancakes and grilled pears for breakfast. Yes, we will be coming back. Thanks, Vicki.

Great Getaway

5 on October 06, 2009

My husband and I recently stayed at Miners Pick for our honeymoon. Neither of us had stayed in a bed and breakfast before and were not sure what to expect. We had a very relaxing stay and Vicki was the perfect Hostess. We stayed in the Quarry room. It had a jet bathtub that was amazing. The breakfast was very good. We really enjoyed ourselves and would like to make this a yearly tradition.


5 on October 03, 2009

We were given a warm welcome by Vicki. She asked if we had a good trip, let us know the options for dinner in the historic downtown area, and made us a delicious breakfast! Everything was clean and decorated beautifully. We even had a claw foot tub in our bathroom!

An Outstanding B&B

4.6 on September 22, 2009

This is an exceptional B&B. Rooms are spacious, airy and attractive. Vicki Larson, the proprietor, is friendly and highly knowledgable about the area. The location is ideal--close to whitewater rafting (I recommend Liquid Descent) and downtown restaurants.

This B & B is awesome!

5 on September 13, 2009

Vicki is a "rock star" My husband & I stayed her 9/11/09 for our anniversary. I will definitely recommend to my friends & everyone out there!


4.0 on August 25, 2009

Everything was great! The bed, the hospitality, the food and the house are all great! It was all good! Fantastic!

B&B Gem in Colorado Gold Country

4.8 on August 08, 2009

Our anniversary getaway began with a ride on the historic Georgetown Loop Railroad. Then a 15-minute drive down the interstate to Idaho Springs brought us to this beautiful inn. We felt welcome the moment we walked in, and spent a while relaxing before heading up the hill to Central City and Blackhawk for dinner and gaming. Upon our return to the inn, we were presented with champagne and strawberries by Vicki, the innkeeper, who was an amazing hostess. In the morning, we ate a delicious breakfast and returned to the city. We had a wonderful time and will certainly visit Vicki and the Miner's Pick again.

Great Place

5 on August 06, 2009

The Miner's Pick was exactly what we were looking for- a charming bed and breakfast where we felt immediately welcomed. We would stay again.

Our time spent at the Miner's Pick was perfect. The room, the meals, the hospitality. Vicki was a wonderful hostess. Don't miss this opportunity as you travel along I-70.

Five years and running

5 on July 06, 2009

My husband and I have visited The Miner's Pick every year for the last five years over the Fourth of July holiday. From our very first visit, we were impressed with the excellent hospitality, clean rooms, and amazing breakfasts. Vicki has every guest's best interest at heart and does everything she can to make the experience unforgettable. You won't be disappointed and will drive away from The Miner's Pick planning your next trip to Idaho Springs. (A great layover stop for your ski vacations too.) We are experienced "B&B" travelers and have stayed at many across the country. This is one of the very best! Barbara and Don

Great B&B

Everything about this bed and breakfast was friendly and cozy. Vicki was always there to make our stay more outstanding. Our room was comfortable with a wonderful jetted bath tub. I could see all the attention to detail she put into decorating the room. In the morning, Vicki had a wonderful breakfast ready for us.

Surprisingly great!

5 on February 05, 2009

When my friend booked us a room at the Miners Pick in Idaho Springs, I had mentally prepared myself for a very 'rustic' experience. I was pleasantly surprised to find that our room was very modern & stylish, our jacuzzi was perfect after a long day outside, and the breakfast in the morning was superb! I'd definitely recommend this B & B--the owner, Vicky, is GREAT!!

Outstanding Quiet Mountain B&B

5 on January 19, 2009

The Best Pick for a close quiet mountain getaway is The Miner's Pick Bed & Breakfast nestled in the heart of Idaho Springs. This place rocks if you need peace of mind and a time away to recuperate from a fast paced world. The proprietor, Vicki Larson offers several clean quaint rooms that are comfortable and spacious. Ms. Larson made sure every individual amenity was met and her facility truly is a reflection of how she enjoys her guests. Ms Larson's number one priority was to make our stay as enjoyable & relaxing as possible......and her breakfast was a gourmet treat! Can't say enough about this great little hideaway spot - We are a professional couple who are 5th generation Coloradans who enjoy REAL mountain activities - cant believe this place is so close to Denver! - Wow.

Great Relaxing vacation

The owner, Vicki, was so welcoming and accomodating. Upon meeting us, she asked us our dietary requirements and made the most amazing breakfast for the two of us! The room and bathtub was wonderful. We have been to other bed and breakfasts and this is by far the best we have been to.
