This sweet B&B is a gem. The rooms are well appointed. The beds and linens are excellent. Our room had a great view of the morning sunrise on the mountain. Best of all were the homemade breakfasts that Sara makes. She made our stay in Ouray special.

After a long drive from Boulder, what a pleasure to stay at Secret Garden for three nights and experience excellent hospitality, delicious food, comfort and charming accommodations. Sara, the proprietor/owner, could not have been more welcoming and did all in her power to make sure we had a lovely and enjoyable place to stay while attending some events in Ouray....

From the rave reviews, we probably had higher than normal expectations. We've stayed at 30+ BnB's and this one just missed the mark for us. The location is ideal for exploring the area and Sarah is very friendly. This just wasn't our type of BnB, but others may love this personal, almost family-like atmosphere. This experience made us feel like...

This was our first trip to southwest Colorado. We stayed in Ouray at Secret Garden for three nights in October 2013. Secret Garden is a beautiful place to stay to enjoy Ouray. Our room was large and cozy with a gas fireplace and a beautiful bathroom. Sara is an excellent cook and wonderful hostess! Her breakfasts are delicious! She knows...

My daughter Lindsay was married at the Secret Garden on October 5. It was absolutely perfect! The garden and "house" were absolutely beautiful...very warm and charming. Not only was the scenery breathtaking, Sarah, the owner, was an amazing hostess, her employees were very professional, and the food was fabulous! It was everything we had dreamed of and more. I would...

This is a totally tremendous place to stay when in Ouray. Sara is a welcoming hostess and made me feel like we have known each other for years so I was comfortable right away. I stayed in the Cotswold room which was perfect for the "woman traveling solo". It has a full sized bed, modern flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi...

My fiancee and I became husband and wife a few weekends back and opted for the Secret Garden as the location for our ceremony and reception. We could not have been happier with our choice. It is a special place that we will undoubtedly revisit in the coming years (perhaps someday with kids in tow). The grounds are meticulously landscaped,...

Just like the Secret Garden in the novel, this place seems magical. The garden is the perfect place to sit, relax, and take in the awe of Colorado's breathtaking mountains. Sara's food is spectacular: quiche AND pancakes for breakfast one morning and French toast soufflé the next. The rooms are charming and reflect Sara's warm and welcoming personality. I feel...
