My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate our one year anniversary. We loved this bed and breakfast and Sarah so much that we will back many more times. Great hospitality, comfortable beds, scrumptious breakfast, and a home that simply can't be beat!! Free happy hour and the hot tub were huge pluses. We can't thank Sarah enough for our...

We had a lovely time at Secret Garden. Our room was large and beautifully furnished. Sarah, our hostess, gave us a delicious breakfast each morning. She was very informative about Ouray and we really enjoyed her company. Don't miss staying here.

Sara's Secret Garden provided the perfect spot for our side trip to Ouray. We found the Secret Garden on the internet while looking for a place to accommodate seven old college friends who came together for a friend's wedding in Colorado Springs. The house worked perfect for three couples plus one. The location and setting were excellently situated to accommodate...

We have been staying in B&B's for over 30 yrs. and thought the description on TripAdvisor and the Secret Garden website fit us, especially since we were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. Upon arriving on Thursday it became apparent that Sara, the owner/chef was not feeling well physically and emotionally. We were sympathetic to learn that she was dealing with...

I am truly sorry and deeply regretful that I was not at the top of my game the first morning of your stay. I apologize that I appeared rude to your kind and generous husband. I remember at that the moment of the coffee assistance he offered I was worried that I would be perceived as not doing my job...

My wife and I were really glad we decided to stay at the Secret Garden. The views were great. It was right by the river. We had the jacuzzi all to ourselves, and the bed was super comfortable! Believe me--I'm a pillow guy, and I left my own in the car because theirs were so soft yet supportive! The house...

What a great gem in Ouray, CO. Sara, the owner/host of this cozy and delightful B&B is great. She also own a catering business so her breakfast was always delicious. If you are looking for a home-like clean environment...with a hot-tub, this is the place for you!

We stayed for a Friday night. Sara was delightful and gave us good advice on what to do while we were in town. Breakfast was wonderful. The room was great, probably the most comfortable sheets I've ever slept on! I would definitely recommend The Secret Garden to others!

The Secret Garden was a lovely place to hold a fund-raiser event. Sara and her staff served a delicious luncheon for 30 guests and we received many, many compliments for the Austrian menu food. We are grateful to have such a quality caterer in our small town -- thank you!

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.
