While Denver-area hotels may offer plenty of bells and whistles, sometimes a getaway calls for the homey comfort of a bed and breakfast. For cozy accommodations, attentive service from on-site innkeepers and freshly cooked morning meals, consider these top local B&Bs.

Housed in an 1889 stone mansion a few blocks from City Park, Castle Marne delivers modern amenities (wi-fi, in-room jetted tubs) in a true Victorian setting. Each of the nine rooms contains period antiques, and guests enjoy a full afternoon tea at check-in. Don’t want to leave the welcoming ambiance at Castle Marne? Book a candle-lit dinner for two in the formal dining room.

Not far from downtown Evergreen, this historic property tucked among pine trees on the banks of Bear Creek offers a range of accommodations – from guest rooms to cottages to luxury suites. You’ll find no frilly doillies here; décor is “Colorado Chic,” with plenty of rough-hewn beams, warm hues and classy bedding in the comfortable cabins. Owner Gail Riley, author of Colorado Cravings, serves up hearty buffet breakfasts in the Dailey Cabin, dating back more than 100 years.

Originally 19th-century side-by-side homes of the Tabor family, this B&B embraces sustainability and community. Totally renovated in 2008, the inn’s 14 rooms feature organic bedding on locally crafted oak platform beds, bulk amenity dispensers filled with Colorado-made organic body products, and low-flow showerheads. More eco-friendly practices here: cleaning products are 100 % biodegradeable, unbleached paper products are recycled and breakfast ingredients include herbs and vegetables from the on-site garden.
