With its majestic mountain ranges and valleys packed with wildflowers, Colorado is home to some of the best scenery in the United States. Visitors flock to the "Centennial State" to take advantage of the numerous hiking, skiing, kayaking and rock climbing opportunities. But after day full of recreational activities, you might want a quiet place to relax during your stay in Colorado. Make yourself at home in one of the following Colorado bed and breakfast hotels.
Combining a rustic feel with the comforts of a modern hotel, the Allaire Timbers Inn is Breckenridge's best kept secret. The B&B is nestled in a grove of trees, but you can stand in front of the expansive windows or on one of the balconies for a great view of the mountains. Given the secluded feel of the inn, you'd think it was in the middle of nowhere. But the Main Street location is just a short walk from several popular Breckenridge attractions. After a long day, relax on the balcony with a good book, in the outdoor hot tub or in front of the fire in the main sitting area.
Indulge the imagination at the Historic Castle Marne Inn. The elegant castle will make you feel like you are in the middle of a fairy tale. Built by a renowned architect in 1889, the Historic Castle Marne Inn is National Historic Register Site. The inn features historic furniture, art, antiques and stained glass windows. Guests can step out on the balcony for a beautiful view of the surrounding English gardens. While it is a great place to stay during a vacation, it also provides the perfect atmosphere for weddings, luncheons and tea ceremonies. Each morning, a scrumptious breakfast is served, including muffins, pancakes, oatmeal, toast, fresh fruit and coffee.
A favorite getaway for honeymooners and eloping couples, the RiverSong Inn is the ultimate place to find a bit of privacy among nature. The bed and breakfast is surrounded by 27 acres of secluded woods. From the huge picture windows, vistors can catch a magnificent view of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Continental Divide. The inn is perfectly situated for nature lovers, who will enjoy hiking and snowshoeing the nearby trails all year long. Wildlife abounds, with guests reporting elk and deer sightings from their windows. Each room has a whirlpool and fireplace, perfect for resting sore muscles.
Old Town GuestHouse
This historic inn's brick walls fit in perfectly with the surrounding Old Town section of Colorado Springs. Despite its historic outer appearance, the Old Town GuestHouse is thoroughly modern on the inside. Enjoy a breathtaking view of the Cheyenne Mountain Range from the hot tub or an afternoon wine tasting in the library of the B&B. You can get to know the other guests at the evening get-together or in the morning over a gourmet breakfast. The owners hold true to their motto "arrive as a guest, leave as a friend."
