My husband and I just returned from a vacation to beautiful Colorado! We left the kids at my parent’s house for a week and headed to Glenwood Springs where our outdoor adventures (primarily river rafting) would take part. We lodged for three nights at the cutest Bed & Breakfast in Glenwood Springs. Being the home decor fanatic that I am, I couldn’t help but drool over this adorable place and I couldn’t wait to come back and give you a tour so you could fall in love as well.
Do come in and make yourself at home!
The door is always open for guests. We were greeted by Jim and Sharill, the kind owners, who graciously showed us around their home. They bought the place about 20 years ago (then a major fixer-upper), made some significant renovations and turned it into a Bed & Breakfast, which they’ve now managed for 17 years.
It’s nestled in the beautiful green mountains a short distance from the main part of town. I’m serious when I say that the minute we arrived at this gorgeous place, I immediately did a Google search for real estate in Glenwood Springs. A girl can dream, right?
We’re now peeking into the place where Jim and Sharill create phenomenal breakfasts, more like artwork on a platter, for their very fortunate guests.
I can’t get enough of those farm style cabinets and that cutting board countertop!
Check out those fun pendant lights over the peninsula! Unfortunately I left my nice camera behind, so these photos were taken from my smartphone.
Every morning was like Christmas, anxiously awaiting our colorful plate of deliciousness to be set before us. My stomach is growling at the reminder. This particular morning we were treated to scrambled eggs straight from the neighbor’s hens, a cranberry tart, fresh fruit, turkey bacon, and a Pinto Bean Tostada. My favorite breakfast there during our three day stay was the Apple Quiche, which I hope to recreate soon and share the recipe with you.
Isn’t the table setting absolutely perfect? I could eat here every day! We were surrounded by pretty things to look at, including a built-in hutch with beautiful dishware and adorable knick-knacks in the entryway, as shown in the top photo. Possibly my favorite item was the red metal bird cage there in the corner of the room. There were also yummy homemade goodies for the taking, atop the chest of drawers, which of course earned the place oodles more brownie points (pun intended) in my book. 🙂
The living area next to where we dined was filled with beautiful heirlooms…an antique piano, chest, and table. Talk about eye candy! The old hardwood floors were amazing as well.
Our room was in the hallway behind those cute white shutters.
We got to fall asleep each night to the soothing sound of a rushing creek that runs through the property. It doesn’t get better than that!
This is not a sponsored post. It’s just me sharing a treasure of a place, because we were so impressed by it. I hope you enjoyed the tour! Be sure to come back tomorrow for Part 2 where I’ll show you the pretty Barn Suite at Four Mile Creek!
Have you ever stayed at a Bed & Breakfast? I think it’s definitely the way to go for a more personal, memorable experience, if that’s the goal.
