About

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 first class hotel in Delta County offering 10 rooms with private baths, gourmet breakfasts, and conference room for meetings of 3 to 30 people. Free phone, WiFi, parking and concierge services.

The nicest place I have ever stayed

5 on February 02, 2017

This place has the whole package folks! Linda is the most gracious hostess and she makes an amazing breakfast!! The hotel is gorgeous, squeaky clean, is warm and cozy, full of beautiful antiques, and in the heart of town. We felt very fortunate to find this gem and can't wait to go back.


Our Pleasnt Stay

Linda, Thank you so much for our lovely stay with you. We especially liked your French toast, fruit, eggs, and the Christmas spirit in the dining area. Your large bronze elevator sculptures add a pleasant touch to the Victorian style B&B. The rooms were charming, comfortable and clean. We would recommend your B&B to any traveler. Thank you for your hospitality. Sincerely, Martha

I stayed at the Bross hotel about 17 years ago on A motorcycle tour with a buddy. I thoroughly enjoyed it then. On the current motorcycle tour with my wife I decided it would be fun to see how the Bross is doing. I was very glad to see that nothing has changed ( in a good way). They had a good thing going then, and still have a good thing going now. Our room was clean, the service professional, and the breakfast delicious. If you're stopping in Paonia, you can't go wrong by staying at the Bross.

Innkeeper Response
It's always wonderful to welcome a returning guest - even when it takes 17 years to return. Seriously, I"m glad you found the hotel living up to your memories.


Beautiful, friendly hotel

We enjoyed our limited one night stay in Paonia at the Bross Hotel. Very clean and welcoming. Left our windows open at night for the cool fresh air. Great change from Vegas where we came from where the ac has to blast all night in a hotel room. I would highly recommend the Bross.

Innkeeper Response
Cool, fresh air and a comfortable environment -- good reasons to visit Paonia again and stay at the Bross Hotel B&B.


A beautiful getaway

4.8 on August 08, 2016

We enjoyed our short getaway to Paonia so much because of home base was the beautiful Bross Hotel. The rooms are immaculate and exquisite. It was wonderfully quiet at night. I think the breakfast buffet was the highlight though. Amazing hot breakfast casseroles both mornings, bagels and muffins, juice, a lovely fruit dish, cereal, and the best coffee I have ever had in a B&B. A sunwashed dining room and friendly people or privacy, whichever you wished. The proprietess Linda Lentz, directed us to local events and eateries, and made it a great stay. Yes, we will return because Paonia is adorable, wineries all around, small town charm, and The Bross Hotel B&B. Katie and Bill, Louisville, CO

Innkeeper Response
I'm glad the Bross Hotel B&B provided the setting you needed for R&R. While Paonia is a quiet town it's filled with activity and welcomes visitors to join in the fun, as you did.

Fabulous place for a relaxing stay

4.8 on July 13, 2016

Linda the Inn Keeper is very friendly and informative, the hotel is like stepping back in time but with all the modern conveniences.Our room was very comfortable and sitting on both the covered porch and balcony are so relaxing. It's location in town is perfect to walk the neighborhood or to Main Street for dinner or ice cream. Will definitely plan a stay here again.

Innkeeper Response
It's pleasure to maintain the reputation of the Bross family for gracious hospitality in their 110 year old hotel. I'm glad you felt welcome and that the Bross Hotel was a great place to unwind and relax. I look forward to hosting you again.

Special Package

Get A Tax Refund

Reward yourself for filing your taxes on time. Take a couple days to relax at the Bross Hotel and get a special deal. The Bross Hotel is offering two nights with two one-hour, full-body massages, and a gift certificate for dinner at one of Paonia’s fine restaurants for the low price of $450, tax included. Also included are: breakfast each day, the aroma of new life, the budding trees, and the first blossoms of spring.

Girlfriends' Getaways

In 1776 Abigail Adams wrote to her husband John, a representative to the Continental Congress, expressing her support for a Declaration of Independence. And, she urged him to “remember the ladies and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors” when writing new laws. Her plea is as important today as it was 241 years ago. We still need to “remember the ladies”. One way we can do that is to support the National Women’s History Museum. Let’s do that by having “Ladies Days” at the Bross Hotel during Women’s History Month (March). You get your girlfriends together for a night or two at the Bross Hotel and I’ll donate half the room revenue to the museum, which is currently waiting for Congress’s approval for a location on the National Mall. Meanwhile, the museum is providing much needed information on women’s contributions to society on its website (nwhm.org). Take a look at it and plan your girlfriends/ladies getaway for any date(s) in March. Just give me a call so your group gets their chosen date(s) on the calendar. Remember we have a large lounge that can be used for crafts, book discussions, movie viewing, and socializing. I look forward to celebrating Women’s History Month with you and supporting the National Women’s History Museum

Romance Packages

Treat your special one to a romantic winter interlude at the Bross Hotel. Picture yourself snuggling under one of our handmade quilts with that special person by your side. It’ll be a night to remember for only $250, including tax. Included is a one night stay in the room of your choice, breakfast, and a gift basket valued at more than $100, including a gift certificate for dinner at one of Paonia’s fine restaurants. You can add a second night to your getaway for just $100. Please make your reservation a week in advance.

Ice Fishing

Try fishing through the ice on Crawford Lake. Crawford State Park is offering you an opportunity to get in on the action without buying equipment. The park has kits that each include equipment for four people to get their hooks into the water — four ice fishing rods, tackle, an ice scoop, depth finder, and an ice auger upon request. So gather your friends or family and make a date to go fishing. Equipment can be picked up at the park office from 8 am to 4 pm. It must be used at the park and returned at the end of the day, Users must have a valid Colorado fishing license. After a day on the ice warm up with hot chocolate and goodies back at the Bross Hotel before snuggling under that beautiful traditional quilt on your bed.
