Overview

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.

About Eliza Fulton

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.

Private ski and/or snowboard lessons for guests and their families is an available option.

Why Eliza Fulton chose Northwest Colorado

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!

What makes this house unique

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.

I didn't realize the owners lived downstairs.

  • 2 of 5

I was under the impression we would have the whole house. Besides that it was a hodge podge of furniture some that needs to be replaced. The "white" towels were gray but otherwise things were clean. The location was great.

Owner's Response: I am sorry it was not clear that we lived downstairs. It is called the GableSuite because it is the upstairs of a 100 year old home and we do live downstairs. We enjoy helping our guests have the best experience possible in our town while providing discounts and information - yet still respecting their privacy. The towels are cream colored, not white, and are clean. We always hang the sheets out on the line so they are really fresh and dry the towels using wool balls and no chemical cleaners or softeners. We appreciate your comments. Thank you.

Great place, great host, GREAT LOCATION!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is basically an apartment that is the entire second floor of the house. Lots of room. Sleeps six comfortably. Everything is exactly as explained in the VRBO posting. Eliza is a great host. There if you need her, out of your hair if you don't. And the location is ideal for access to downtown Glenwood Springs, the Hot Springs themselves, Sunlight ski area and the entire Roaring Fork Valley. We will definitely be back!

Great location & very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The owners were so helpful in introducing us to this spectacular area of Colorado! Both hot springs are amazing & the vapor caves are so unique; glad we experienced all of them. We also enjoyed a trail ride & cookout at a nearby working ranch. Hope to return in the future!
