It's been over a year since my husband and I were married at Secret Garden (July 2015), and we still can't believe how incredible it all turned out. The food that Sara and her staff made was absolutely amazing, and their service was top notch. Sara is well known in town and knows of all the vendors to reach out...

With hotels in Ouray all booked up for the few days we needed, I panicked one night while looking for hotels and found this BnB. It showed vacancy online, but I wanted to call to find out for sure that the suite was available. Sara answered and was quick to tell me the rooms were available and that she would...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights for our 25th anniversary getaway. It was quiet and relaxing after a day of hiking and riding jeep trails. The views from our room were beautiful. The location is in walking distance to Main Street where all the shops and restaurants are located. Sara took good care of us with a nice hot...

This small B&B a block off the main highway through town has much to recommend it. It's almost ideally placed for access to the bars and restaurants in the middle of town, yet far enough off the main drag that road noise is not a problem. The grounds are gorgeous and well set up for special events; the included breakfast...

Staying at the Secret Garden is like staying at your favorite aunt's home! It's lovely, cozy, very serene, and with plenty of privacy. It's easy walking distance to everything in Ouray. And, the best part is the owner, Sarah. She is so warm, interesting, and accommodating. We felt like we were leaving our favorite aunt when we drove away. We...

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast - there is no question about that. The problem is the owner, Sara. My daughter was planning here wedding here several years ago, and loved this spot for the wedding and reception. My daughter, my good friend and I booked rooms in February (the wedding was in June) so we could sit down...

What makes this place one of the best ever rentals I have stayed in is how homely this place has been made to be and the warmth that Sara brings as a person and a host. This place is beautifully situated right next to a small creek with the backdrop of the beautiful mountains of Colorado. The location of the...

Sara , our host was incredibly nice. She made some delicious breakfasts during our stay. She was so nice that she made some vegetarian breakfast for me separately as I am a veggie. Great Service, very neat bed rooms and bathroom. I will be staying here again for my next visit to ouray. Highly recommended !

We stayed here on our honeymoon and we were very pleased. This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and we were nervous because we didn't know what to expect. But with our good experience, we will come back here and try other bed and breakfasts when we travel. Our host was friendly and professional. She made...

This is a darling spot to stay in Ouray. Located on a quiet side street a couple blocks from Main Street, you'll be treated as a treasured guest. Very informal and relaxing, enjoy sitting in the living room to read or catch up using the wifi. Sara is a very gracious host and fabulous cook. Plan to be hungry for...
