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 sink, a small stove with oven, apartment-sized refrigerator, kitchen table for 4-6 people, coffee pot, crockpot, toaster and microwave. 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. An infrared sauna is available for an extra fee (3-4 person). 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, hair dryer and hand lotion are included.

Why Eliza Fulton chose Glenwood Springs

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.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Best Kept Secrets B and B. It was very homey and clean. Also, the location was perfect. We could just walk downtown. We will definitely stay again if we go back to Glenwood Springs.

Great relaxing place to stay. Didn't realize we had the whole top floor of the house. It was awesome

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The atmosphere was great. Rooms were clean and cozy. Offered a variety of games for the evenings. The owners were amazing and so knowledgeable about the history of the town. We especially liked that they are a nature habitat friendly place. Jesse was very friendly. It was centrally located, we walked most every where which was nice because of the Bridge construction. Overall we really enjoyed our 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.
