Extraordinary is the first word I think of to describe my experience at this quaint little Inn. I had the most wonderful experience, starting with my drive through the fun little town of Niwot. When I saw the Inn I was immediately drawn in by the beauty of the grounds and the building itself. The exterior of the Inn speaks to the details you’ll also find inside. From the moment I entering the Inn I knew I was in for a real treat. A huge jar of chocolate called to me as I checked in. The lounge with the huge fireplace sent warmth throughout the area. Jim Brickman piano music played as I entered my room, creating calm, relaxing mood while being shown the amenities of the room. I felt like I was on a retreat only few get to experience.The ambiance was fantastic and just what I needed after a long day of travel.I spent time in the “lodge”, where I enjoyed some of the best cheese and crackers. There was wine, cookies, hot chocolate, nuts, etc. I sat in the large leather chair enjoying conversation with other guests and relishing the warmth of the fire coming from the huge stone fireplace. It was a great place to stop after a long day at work. If you plan on staying at the Niwot Inn, take the time to notice all the details. The owner has taken the time to focus on every little detail. The towels, the room key, the beds, the decorations, the bathroom sink, the trim, the doors, the lights, the room name signs, EVERYTHING. If I am ever in Niwot area again I guarantee I’ll be staying there. My stay there was one of the best experiences of my life. A quiet, small Inn was just what I needed and this was exactly the place! Debbie A.

Thanks Niwot Inn and those who work there. You are all AWESOME!!!

Dear Niwot Inn Staff: We just wanted to thank you again for your hospitality earlier this week. We thoroughly enjoyed our meetings and stay with you and the comfort of your conference room, lounge room, and guest rooms. Overall, it was a great experience. Your staff was absolutely superb and extremely kind and helpful to us. If you ever need a reference, please do not hesitate to ask. And yes, we will be back!  Thank you! Warm regards, Cynthia

I checked into your Inn yesterday and leave tomorrow. I have been a diamond member with the Hilton and platinum member with Starwood in the past and have spent a lot of time at some of the nicest hotels throughout the world. Without exception, your Inn has provided me with the comfort, hospitality, and warmth I wish all the others would have. Your entire staff was the best. I hope they are still here when I return. You have done a remarkable job. Warmest Regards, Reid

Greetings, staff. Thank you for the information regarding the phone charger left in the room after my stay. One of our employees will be staying soon, and they will pick it up. Next, I want to again compliment you and your staff. At our dinner last evening, everyone spoke of how impressed they all were with the Inn and all the care and attention they were given. The little things you do (“the extras”) did not go unnoticed. I’ve received many emails thanking me…but without all of you, I could not have put together such a productive team meeting.  In my eyes, you are unparalleled in hospitality. That’s why the Niwot Inn is always my choice for team building functions.  Perhaps one day I may even get to stay in one of the gorgeous rooms.  P.S. Diane loved the apartment. – Danita

Thank you! Everything was great. – Mike

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team at the Niwot Inn and Spa for your support and hospitality over the last couple of months while I was teaching the Certified Loan Master course.
