About the Property

Entire Upstairs Floor - The GableSuite sleeps 1 - 6 people - has own entrance

Come stay in the GableSuite. This charming suite encompasses all the nooks and crannies of the second floor of the Best Kept Secret B & B (Bed and Bath). We are located right downtown in a beautiful historic home that was built in 1914.

This unique accommodation includes a small bedroom (yes, under the gables overlooking the front garden) with a queen bed. There is also an ample living room with a comfortable queen sleeper couch and built in desk area with free wi-fi. The bathroom has a shower, tiled floors and sink with a travertine counter top and lots of storage.

The kitchenette includes a bar sink, a single induction burner for cooking, along with a coffee pot, crockpot, toaster, toaster oven and microwave. There is an apartment size refrigerator (with separate freezer compartment) and a nice butcher block kitchen table that seats four to six people. Enjoy a sunny start to your day as you enjoy breakfast under the skylight or watch the moon pass overhead as you stay up late playing cards or cribbage! The possibilities are endless.

Off the kitchenette is a twin bed - yes, under the gables! Next to the kitchenette is a small den with a TV and double recliner love seat. The den leads to the upper porch with a full-sized couch and small eating table with two chairs and an umbrella (except in winter). From the porch you can look down on the labyrinth and back gardens and enjoy a 360 degree view, looking at Red Mountain, Iron Mountain and Lookout Mountain. Your private entrance to the GableSuite is up the back spiral staircase.

There is a single roll-away bed and pack-n-play; if needed. The back porch has a gate on the top of the stairwell as an added safety feature.

Come stay in the GableSuite and we will greet you on the first floor and escort you up the inside stairs with your luggage and other items. You will then be asked to use only the outside spiral staircase for the duration of your stay. On your departure everything you brought can again be taken out, with ease, through the first floor.

The minimum stay in the GableSuite is three nights during the peak season (May through October) and for Holidays; two nights during the quiet season (November through April).

Other extras include the use of two cruiser bicycles, outdoor hot tub and labyrinth. Discounts are available for the Hot Springs Pool/Athletic Club and Yampah Vapor Caves.

The GableSuite comfortably sleeps a family of four or five, (with the rollaway six people). All linens, towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner and hand lotion are included.

Glenwood Hot Springs Pool & Athletic Club, Yampah Vapor Caves, Numerous Spas and Treatment Opportunities - Labyrinth on location


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: David and Eliza have enjoyed living in Glenwood Springs since 2003. They became a bed & breakfast in 2009 and now prefer to rent the upstairs guests for them to share a vacation with other friends and family members. Eliza is a passionate gardener and loves being a grandmother. David is an avid outdoorsman, history buff and certified ski instructor. Private ski and/or snowboard lessons for guests and their families is an available option.

Why the Owner Chose Glenwood Springs, CO, USA:
You will enjoy not only the historic value of this property but also its very convenient location to almost everything. Being located on a quiet street it is perfect for a relaxing time with family and friends. Most people love to sit on the porch on a sunny afternoon. In winter the outdoor hot tub offers a nice period of respite following a busy day of hiking, biking, fishing, sledding, shopping, skiing... etc!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The labyrinth is definitely one of the unique features of this property along with the beautiful gardens. You will feel the sweetness of the place when you stay.
