Lovely Inn

5 on October 10, 2016

Beautiful house with lots of interesting antiques collected by owner. Very comfortable, clean, spacious room and bathroom (we stayed in the master bedroom). Quiet location, but just a very short walk to downtown. Every need thought of, including wine in the guest fridge. Absolutely delicious breakfasts - homemade jams, fruit and vegetables from the garden, creative egg dishes. Kathy is a delightful host - felt like an new old friend by the end of our 3 night stay. My husband and I loved this place!

Kind of Amazing

We just completed an 8-night stay at the Purple Sage Inn. For us, that was our longest stay anywhere, ever. Honestly, we have zero suggestions for improvement. It was that good. Food - wonderful and timing flexible; accommodations - excellent and beautiful; friendliness/helpfulness - these guys care, almost like family; access to 3 National parks - 1.5 hours or less. Over the years, we have stayed in five B&Bs, all first class. The Purple Sage Inn is easily the best. Our sincere gratitude to owners/operators Kathy & Tory for a wonderful experience. - Jim & Faye

Perfect Stay

5 on September 29, 2016

After a 6-hour drive we were happy to settle into this beautiful and warm house. Cathy was there to greet us with a friendly welcome and fascinating tour of history of the house. Every morning we were served homemade delicacies that included fresh vegetables and fruits from her garden, such as, melons, beautiful tomatoes, and my favorite, jalapeno jam, served with biscuits. A huge breakfast to send us on our way to one of the may sites around the area. The room we chose was the attic, I think, and we loved it. My favorite memory was taking a shower after an exhausting day, hiking, the window was open (total privacy), witnessing a beautiful sunset. The shower head was better than any one I had ever had. One of the happiest moments of the trip, for me. I hope someday I can stay here again.

First stay in a B & B; we are totally spoiled!!

This B & B is amazing! It is a historic home, beautifully furnished with great attention to details, and wonderful amenities. The owners were very friendly, and ready to do anything to make sure our stay was enjoyable. The breakfasts were amazing, with fresh vegetables from their garden, and they served pepper jelly made from peppers from their garden...best I've ever had! The apricot jam was also made by the owner from apricots grown on a tree in their yard! This was our first time staying in a B & B, and I'm just worried we have been spoiled so no others will measure up to this! We just can't say enough good things about the Purple Sage Inn! We would highly recommend it to anyone!!

Great B&B!

Kathy is wonderful! Friendly & knowledgable, she directed us to some nice local hikes and good restaurants. I loved sitting on the porch chatting with her. Our bed was really comfortable, so we slept very well. This was our second stay at the Purple Sage Inn and I hope we can return again soon.

What an impressive experience!
