Lovely B and B centrally located in Laramie. Dani and Lawrence are incredible hosts and couldn't be more accommodating. We had a wonderful visit. Their home is immaculate and amazing. It is within walking distance of the town. They also supplied great recommendations.

My bridesmaids and I stayed here the night before my wedding (which was in Laramie) and got ready for the event at the Inn. This place was could not have been more perfect. They let us take over the main space with our hair/makeup/dress tornado as we got ready, and picked things up for us after we left (even though...

Really nice people, and a superb breakfast. Just good all around. Very attractive surroundings courtesy of the mad carpenter himself. And, when I left my phone charger in the wall socket (again! seem to do this everywhere!) they sent it to my home without my asking, the first place I've ever had do that.

We got off to a shaky start when my wife and I arrived (mistakenly) at the inn around noon on the day before the day I had made our reservation, but ever-gracious and unflappable innkeeper Lawrence assured us that he had a room available and that my error was not a serious gaffe; he was just relieved that he had...

This is a beautiful house lovingly extended and refurbished by Lawrence and professionally run by him and his wife Dani. We had the Whimsy room which is large and near the main reception area. It was warm - on a cold, frosty night in Laramie and comfortable. Dani helped me with my flight check-in for my return frm Denver the...

The location was a little tricky to find, but once we got there we were in for quite a surprise! The adorable little cottage was beautifully renovated inside, small but all the comforts of home & more. Just inside the door you will find a fridge, microwave, coffeemaker & cupboards filled with an assortment of teas & coffee. The bathroom...

Picture an old two-story house, run down and without character. And look at it now! Lawrence, the Mad Carpenter, bought the old house, and completely restored it, with the most beautiful woodwork imaginable. What a treat to stay in this showplace, which is now a B&B. Lawrence and his wife Danny were excellent hosts, and we enjoyed our visit with...

We stayed at the Dollhouse for one night and enjoyed it a lot. The dollhouse itself is located away from the main house and gives you all the privacy and tranquility you can desire. You can park your car right in front of the dollhouse, which is really convenient. The name is perfectly chosen because you really feel like entering...

Located on a quiet street one block from the University this well run B&B served up a healthy,homemade breakfast and a good sized helping of Wyoming hospitality. Owners provided secure location for our road bikes. Great coffee for those of us that appreciate it after years of cowboy coffee (hot water passed thru a black hat). Enjoyable stay.

Lawrence and Danny Rue exemplify everything that B&B innkeepers should be. They are super hospitable, welcoming, accommodating, with a just a hint of business. Breakfast was perfect - a great selection of fruit and Danny's specialties. The B&B is very clean and has a great "home" feel to it. Its central location makes it great for visits to the university...
