Secret Garden is a wonderful historical property that is extremely quiet and comfortable. My wife and I were in the queen sized room and had a shared bath. Excellent wifi. A large livingroom with gas fireplace was available for reading and/or conversation. The owner/chef, Sara, ensured that our every need was met and surprised us each morning with a homecooked...

Sarah really helped us in regards to stay. Situations came up in which we would have to change our reservation and she did so without any problem. Mind you this was in the winter when she seems to be a bit less busy. The master suite down stairs is well worth the cost as we loved the ambiance. Think of...

Dinners at the Secret Garden after a day of ice climbing with Chicks are absolutely terrific. Sarah goes out of her way to feed us delicious and nutritious food and still manages to cater to everyone's food restrictions. Even while cooking at high altitude. Truly amazing. Very cute place!

The food is absolutely fantastic and is made from the best fresh ingredients. Every dish was wonderful and so flavorful. Each meal was so unique and her salads has so many interesting and complex flavors. Luckily I was exercising all day so I could take full advantage of the food.

I've stayed here and its very comfortable. More recently I've dined here with Chicks ice climbing and skiing groups, and the food is unparalleled in Ouray. If you need a place for your large-ish group to gather for dinner, or need a caterer, Sarah is your gal. So excellent, varied, and delicious!

For the second year in a row, I've come to Ouray for a Chicks Ice Climbing clinic. Each time, Sarah has been a gracious host greeting us with the most delicious food after our daily climbing adventures. I hope to come back in the summer and stay at the Secret Garden B&B! Thanks for a lovely experience Sarah :)

I took an ice climbing clinic with Chicks with Picks (which I also highly recommend) and every night met with my classmates and teachers for dinner at the Secret Garden. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and Sara was a delightful host. Unfortunately the garden was under a foot or two of snow but I'd love to come back...

As part of an ice climbing clinic hosted by Chicks with Picks, our group dined every evening at the Secret Garden. It is a warm, inviting home (radiant floor heat) hosted by an even warmer foodie chef. Gourmet meals every evening, always preceded by a delicious soup, vegetables many ways, international style salads (Asain, Caesar, Greek, to name a few),...

Chicks Climbing and Skiing utilizes the Secret Garden as our home base for all of our winter programs. Sarah is a gracious host to the guides and the participants. The house is cozy and the food is amazing. I recommend the Secret Garden for any large party or function.

My wife and I were married here in July, 2007. Sara, the innkeeper, is one of the most welcoming and kind people you will ever meet. She took great care of us when we were married and we keep on coming back, year after year. Our most recent visit, January of 2017, was no exception. Sara makes you feel like...
