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... More

Our objective was to serve 150 wedding guests a menu from local, organic foods with enough vitality and distinction to appeal to the most sophisticated guest while keeping it casual.

Just had our wedding with Sarah in september. The wedding was great and the setting was beautiful. Sarah did the catering for the event and it was delicious. I would recommend the secret garden for any event. My wife and I had a great time.

The food, the presentation and the service was perfect. Our guests loved it. And there's not a more friendly or more competent caterer in all of... More

My husband and I wanted to have a very small gathering for our anniversary, and did not realize that it would be almost impossible to find someone to cater a small event, until Sara the owner of the Secret Garden B&B came to our rescue. I called to ask if she would consider making a very light lunch for six,... More

Sarah and the Secret Garden hosted my great friends' wedding and it was absolutely perfect. Sarah and her staff were incredible. They were fast on their feet and rolled with the chaos that was a rainy wedding. It couldn't have been more beautiful or more personal for my friends.
