Being the daughter of bed and breakfast owners, I know the efforts involved in making sure guests feel welcome in your home. Sara hits every point perfectly. We felt as though we were staying in a family home. Our 3 year-old daughter was welcomed with open arms and given run of the house. Other b and b's in Ouray have...

My husband and I needed a weekend getaway and Sara, the owner of the Secret Garden in Ouray, delivered 100 percent. This is a lovely house with private, quiet rooms and a good breakfast to look forward to in the morning. Sara is a lively person and a lot of fun. Ouray is special and great for hiking, climbing, and...

We booked a room at the Secret Garden at the last minute “walk-in” style and considered ourselves lucky to have the opportunity to stay in Sarah’s lovely B&B. Our room was huge, well-appointed and comfortable. Sarah made us feel at home right from the start and as others have mentioned she is the perfect balance of “caring host” and “come...

Based on past experience we tend to view gushing reviews, particularly of bed and breakfasts, with a degree of caution. However, in this case they are well justified. The Secret Garden is well appointed, well positioned, and welcoming; a nicely maintained garden; a very pleasant outside deck; clean hot-tub; a 'happy hour'!! .. I could go on. We are always...

Needed to spend the night in Ouray and found Secret Garden. A cozy house, close to the main drag and the river, free parking, internet; the flowers and beautiful gardens made sitting on the porch most restful. Sara, our hostess, was most gracious--we arrived way early but she welcomed us in, gave us good tips on seeing Ouray, and made...

Excellent, Great Breakfast, Comfortable Beds, beautiful gardens! Feels like you just came home! Sarah is very charming! The house has great art! We had the upstairs and we were very comfortable. We had a kitchenette upstairs and we were able to store our picnic food in the refrigerator.

We kind of dropped in on Sara and she was amazing. Gracious, helpful, she makes you feel right at home. Sara is a fantastic chef and excellent host. The cottage cheese lemon pancakes were incredible. I know we will be visiting again..and again.

Ouray is beautiful and this B&B is nestled amidst the beautiful mountains at the end of the street. It's quiet. The house is charming and roomy. My bed was heavenly; I fell asleep the moment my head hit the pillow. Sara not only runs the place--she is a caterer by profession and her breakfast is spectacular. Ask for her signature...

My wife and I stayed with Sara at the Secret Garden BNB for Valentines Day 2015. Sara took great care of us and the other guests. The Provencal room was clean and had a great view of the surrounding mountains. Go stay at the Secret Garden in Ouray!
