Where to start? Jim and Cheryl are wonderful hosts. They have worked this B+B for 20 years. Jim is a retired fireman and paramedic and Cheryl is a jewelry artist. They are both very artistic and caring people. They found and bought an old ranch built in 1926 with a stream of mountain water and a collapsing barn on the property. They rebuilt the barn and the house and have turned this into a terrific place. Among other talents, Jim also composes music, performs it, and hosts 6 concerts during the summer months. They have a museum quality art collection that is worth a visit by itself. The satisfying breakfast was made before our eyes. The only negative was the bed in the Bird room, which was queen size and a bit wonky. But everything else was so delightful that we could overlook the bed issue and are already making plans for a return visit. If you have interest in western art, music, refurbished old Colorado ranches and are willing to drive about 5 miles outside of Glenwood Springs into some gorgeous mountain country, this place is for you. Don't miss it!
