Just twenty minutes from downtown Denver, the town of Golden is the perfect little oasis for Denverites. With epic mountain views, bars, breweries (the coors factory!) and restaurants, I knew Golden would be an ideal spot for a little staycation. The Dove Inn had been on my radar for awhile and I was thrilled to be able to spend the night at such a stunning, historic boutique.
Every detail at The Dove Inn is perfectly curated, cozy, modern, yet historic at the same time. The home dates back to 1866 and the renovations have enhanced the space but kept the historic charm. There is a lovely seating room, gorgeous kitchen with cold brew and kombucha on tap…ALL of the coffee please! A communal fridge was stocked with fresh pastries, granola, noosa yogurt and chilled sparkling water.
After playing around in the common spaces we went up the our suite “The Queen Anne” suite. Each room has its own lock pad and the check in and check out process is beyond simple. The room was lovely and the bed was SO cozy and soft. Want to know the best part? The room came with a space heater fire place and a TV with netflix and HBO (so.much.yes) After settling in we went off to explore the town of Golden.
Golden definitely has that historic charm and it was a blast just walking around, checking out the shops like Spinster Sisters and scoping out places to have a snack. My friend Kaylee recommended Miners Saloon so we stopped in for a pre-dinner bite. Sadly the beer + cocktails list was off limits because of #dryjanuary, but next time I go back I will certainly be trying one of the delicious beers and then heading next door to the speakeasy. After a light bite we headed back to The Dove Inn to take a rest on the cozy daybed!
Dinner went down at Abejas and it was an awesome experience. We munched on fresh bread, cheese and charcuterie, pickled beets and a tasty steak. For dessert a chocolate olive oil cake hit the spot and we were stuffed and happy. In the morning I was so excited to sip on the amazing coffee downstairs in the kitchen and it did not dissapoint. I was sad to go but the stay was perfection and I would 11/10 recommend checking out The Dove Inn to anyone! (also PS. calling all brides….imagine you and your ladies getting ready together at The Dove Inn on wedding day…so fun!) Thank you so much to The Dove Inn for hosting me!
