The grounds of this B&B are quiet and peaceful. The rooms are nicely decorated, clean, and well kept. Sara, the owner, is gracious and an award winning chef. I stayed here on a ride up to and back from Salem OR and it's the nicest place I've stayed in Ouray so far.

Sarah and her crew offer a great B&B experience at an excellent value. We were greeted with a happy hour featuring wine and snacks. The grounds at Secret Garden are landscaped beautifully and the back porch is particularly great. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Sarah makes a hearty breakfast. Highly recommend this B&B in Ouray.

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Secret Garden. It is a beautiful property close to the river and walking distance from most everything. The bed was comfortable and the host, Sara, was very accommodating. Sara seems to have thought of everything you need - she offers towels to take to the hot springs, bath robes to use...

Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind review. We do try hard! I believe you stayed in the Devonshire Room. With no real cross-ventilation to speak of, that room is definitely our "warmest." I do have a few small fans in there but your comments tell me that I need a bigger fan that will fit inside the...

Just finished a three-day conference in Ouray and stayed at the Secret Garden. Loved the warmth and charm of the B&B and my cozy, comfy room. Sara anticipated my every need. She also catered a breakfast and lunch for over 300 people flawlessly. Her attention to detail cannot me overstated. I look forward to staying at the Secret Garden again....

We can't say enough about the Secret Garden B&B - our recent visit was absolutely wonderful. Sara was welcoming and made our whole family feel at home throughout our stay in Ouray. The B&B is as quiet and restful as it appears from the website. We enjoyed the delicious breakfasts, the relaxing common area, the hot tub, the beautiful deck,...

So in my last review I definitely wanted to come back to the Secret Garden, but didn't know when/if it'd ever happen. Two years later, it did. My fiancé and I were planning our honeymoon and he said he wanted to go to Colorado. I said "well, I know a place..." I emailed Sara and she remembered me from 2...

Our stay at Secret Garden was fantastic. Sara was warm and friendly and helpful with ideas of things to do. Our room had a wonderful view and was clean and airy. The food was very good too. We will be staying again!

Our 3-night stay this past weekend at the Secret Garden was lovely. Sara the innkeeper was an excellent host, and she was devoted to us - her only guests for the weekend. The home is comfortable and welcoming, and we explored the grounds to determine the logistics of our summer wedding on her property. Great views from all rooms! We...

Thank you so much for your generous comments! We are working on acquiring larger TVs. We had not thought it of concern before now because as you noted, most people do not come to Ouray to watch TV. THANKS for coming and thank you for writing such a thoughtful, detailed review!

This is simply a great little B & B. Sara is literally the perfect host. She is welcoming and acomidating without being the least bit overbearing. The location is perfect for walking around Ouray to the Box Canyon or any of the dinning locations. The rooms are smallish and may not necessarily appeal to a younger crowd, but the beds...

The food and the service for my daughter's wedding reception at the Secret Garden in Ouray were excellent. But the Secret Garden would be a very special place to stay at any time. Sara is a joy as a person and as a hostess, and the rooms are lovely. I would like to be able to stay there again and...
