The Briar Rose attracts a wonderful variety of guests from all around the world. Breakfast is a time of stimulating conversations with remarkably interesting people, or an intimate breakfast for two on our sun-porch. Fresh flower arrangements are everywhere, and the gardens are lovely in Spring through the Fall (and still pleasant in the Winter, which has its own quiet charm when fresh white snow blankets the ground.) We offer a large assortment of wonderful fresh organic loose-leaf tea, served any time of day with our homemade shortbread butter cookies. We are very highly rated, with many rave reviews. Our main house was built in the 1880's, adding to its charm.
We have ten guest rooms, each with its individual character and amenities. Finish elements vary by room (hardwood floors, bathtubs, skylights, writing desks, sofa sleepers, fireplaces, etc.; for example, the Huron room with private, heated, soaking tub — Note to return guests: We replaced the jetted tub with a soaking tub because of noise and other issues.) For those wishing to conduct business during their stay, high-speed wireless is available throughout, and our common area features two guest computers with print, fax, copy and scan capability.
Boulder has lots of great restaurants (a few requiring long advance reservations), and as concierge we delight in helping visitors find what they are looking for, be it Thai, Indian, Northern Italian, Organic, Vegetarian, Fresh, or the famous Boulder-Dushanbe Teahouse.
As host we extend kindness to whoever walks in the door, whether guests or not. Our hospitality is expressed each moment in taking care of those things that call for it. Our wonderful staff of Naropa University and University of Colorado at Boulder students help us do this in a way that will engage you.
We intend to be the Boulder's eco leader. We continuously evolve how we make travel more sustainable. For example:
