We stayed at Blue Lake Ranch for one night this summer, wanting to visit Mesa Verde in our travels through southwest Colorado. The location is excellent for that, and the "casita" they had available sounded like it would work well for me, my wife, and our two young kids. The stay was very pleasant, and the setting is really terrific.... More

My husband and I have stayed here 3 times. Each time in a different suite or casita. We have loved them all. 2 of them had unobstructed mountain views. We especially enjoy the decor of the accommodations and the gardens. Breakfast is a real treat. On this visit, there was a new cook and we wondered if the menu would... More

We recently spent several nights at Blue Lake ranch with family members for a wedding. Overall it was a wonderful experience. The few little glitches were addressed immediately by the staff and they went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. My favorite part about this property is that you are within walking distance of the... More

We had a very relaxing stay at this B&B in a lovely room. The property is beautiful with lots of trees, flowers, birds and scenery. The staff was extremely attentive and helpful, to the extent of bringing us umbrellas at our car when we checked in during a rainstorm. The breakfasts were excellent, although one morning were both cold and... More

We have stayed at Blue Lake Ranch twice and loved it both times. Great option for nature-loving families with children and teenagers. Close to Durango and Mesa Verde but off the beaten path enough to enjoy the quiet and beauty of the location. Always a lovely gourmet breakfast. This is the elegant location for those who appreciate beautiful room decor... More

This review represents the average of two nights, one of which was dreadful and the other was spectacular. Our first night was in the Mountain View suite. When we returned to our room at 8 pm, the temperature in the suite was 91 degrees. The small portable a/c was not working properly, so we had no choice but to open... More

We chose this place since it rivaled the prices of the regular hotels in Durango and for the price we got a great view, jacuzzi tub, private balcony, gourmet breakfast from a chef who owed his own biz, natural surroundings, beautiful picturesque scenes and a very large room. We stayed in the main house on the second floor in the... More

Our overall experience at the BLR was great. Our arrival however left much to be desired... I had booked the lake view suite and was excited to enjoy the extra room and the view with my hubby. Unfortunately when we checked in they told us they had us down for the la plata room (accross the hall from lake view... More

Being away from the hustle and bustle of Durango makes the location idyllic. It is not too far away that the drive seems long. In fact, it's in a perfect location for accessing Mesa Verde and other attractions west of Durango. The chef prepares a fantastic breakfast and the wild flowers create a beautiful surrounding.

We stayed three wonderful nights at the Upper Spring House. The space was large and comfortable, with spacious bathrooms, a comfortable king size bed, all decorated with excellent taste. We had gorgeous views of the snow capped peaks and a pond below our house. Doug, the innkeeper was a great host; and Jackie the cook was a wonderful cook. Both... More
