The Briar Rose is run by Zen monks Amy Robertson and Gary Hardin. The innkeepers' goal is to bring mindfulness and compassion to guests of the inn. Offering a feeling of "home" in the heart of Boulder, the Briar Rose features gardens for personal reflection, a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, and a meditation room. A full, organic breakfast is offered in the dining room or on the sun porch. Arrangements can be made for in-room service.
