Perfect location, beautiful home. Breakfast could not be better.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, the next stop is Glenwood Springs"
Welcome to Glenwood Springs,
and particularly welcome to Glenwood Springs Station, which in 2004 celebrated it's 100th birthday. The Station, then called
Depot, was officially opened on June 18, 1904, which was Strawberry
Day. Since then, hundreds of thousands of passengers have boarded
or departed trains headed either east or west - and Strawberry
Days is now spread over three days.
The original company to
run trains through Glenwood Springs, the Denver and Rio Grande
Railroad, called the line the "Scenic Line of the World",
partially because of the spectacular beauty of the Glenwood Canyon.
The line, which opened in 1887, brought comfortable and fast transportation
to the city of the "Yampah" Hot Spings, attracting people
from all over the world. They have ranged from miners to bathers
AMTRAK, now leasing much of the station, operates the Rocky Mountain Express with its silver bullet superliner service. The Glenwood Railroad Museum, which opened in September 2003, is also housed in the Station. At a few minutes walking from the Station you will find the Lavender and Thyme Bed and Breakfast, your downtown B&B accommodation closest to the Station, but also in walking distance of most of the other Glenwood Springs attractions.
Although the walk to our B&B is generally very pleasant, conditions, like weather or your luggage, might require us to help you a little: We gladly provide you with shuttle service from and to the station.
