Let me just tell you, with the stress of work, and this whole not sleeping…
If you are in Colorado or planning to make a trip, then you absolutely want to book a weekend for the perfect couples getaway at The Dove Inn. Read on to learn about the Inn, the amenities and how to book!
Disclosure: We were invited for a weekend away at The Dove Inn. All opinions are my own.
The Dove Inn
I was elated when The Dove Inn reached out to me and asked if my husband and I wanted to spend a weekend away in their quaint little bed and breakfast in the heart of Golden. I have lived in Colorado my entire life and I am only about 40 minutes from Golden, Colorado and yet, I have never really explored the area. We were very excited to take on a weekend away and not only experience our first bed and breakfast, but also check out the city.
Our trip was cut a bit short because we had every car we own decide that it no longer needed to run, but all worked itself out and we were able to get to The Dove Inn on a nice snowy weekend and really get away and relax. We had been going pretty much non-stop between the kitchen renovation, traveling for blog business and general work life for over 3 months and we had pretty much zero couples time. The Dove Inn was a much needed getaway.
We arrived at The Dove Inn to the most seamless check-in we have ever had. The owners of the Inn sent us an email saying that our room was ready along with a code to get into the main door and a code for our room. We parked and walked right into this adorable little bed and breakfast ready to explore it a bit and then take some time for us.
The Dove Inn was built in 1866 and has a modern feel with the comforts of home. There are 10 rooms to choose from, each with their own theme. The bed and breakfast is more of a boutique hotel with a little grab and go continental breakfast where guests are invited to enjoy the space, take what you need for the day and explore the city.
The Perfect Couples Getaway
I have to admit that I was a bit apprehensive about staying at a bed and breakfast. It was something that we had never done before and I knew that we would be in close proximity to other guests, sharing the kitchen and living spaces. However, those feeling quickly moved on once we were in The Dove Inn. People generally kept to themselves, they were friendly and the main living space was warm and welcoming.
We enjoyed the privacy and quiet that you do not normally get in a busy hotel and I loved how The Dove Inn really left you to enjoy the space and the city as you needed. We never saw the owners, we were able to grab a cup of coffee or a snack and just snuggle and chat without any interruptions, we had a chance to check out a bit of Golden and we even snuck away for a favorite seafood meal and some gambling. We ended our night, catching up on our DVR’d shows from the TV in the room and slept like babies.
We didn’t want to leave the next morning. We awoke and got ready for the day. We headed downstairs where we met some of the other guests who were all so nice and we enjoyed a light breakfast of toast and coffee before heading home. The calm, peace and quiet that we had was something that both of us needed desperately and the time that we were able to just enjoy each others company really made this the perfect couples getaway.
Amenities at The Dove Inn
In addition, to the beautiful period decor that is splashed through each and every space of The Dove Inn, there are many personalized touches that make this place really stand out. Each room has its own bathroom and the place is kept very clean. Although there is not daily cleaning services, you can leave a tag on your door and the owners will freshen up your room while you are out.
The bathrooms in each room have luxury soaps and lotions and a towel specifically for make-up. Some rooms have their own sitting spaces and all are equipped with a TV and wifi. In the main space there is a self serve coffee bar with kombucha and nitro cold brew on tap along with an interactive tablet to help guests create their perfect coffee blend.
If you forget something, they likely have it for you. There is a closet that is full of backpacks and free reusable water bags for those that want to take a hike. You can borrow an iron, there are toiletries and even first aid items.
The Dove Inn has really thought of everything that you need and if they haven’t thought of it, they are just a message away! My husband and I agreed that we would be coming back in the summer and that we wanted to make an entire weekend of it. Everything about our stay at The Dove Inn was incredible and we can’t wait to go back!
