The property is spectacular! The flowers, the architecture of the buildings, and the decor are lovely. We stayed in the Sunrise Casita which I understand is a little larger than the Sunset. It has many windows and lovely views. The casita has a large bathroom with double sinks, a closet, walk-in shower and tub, which you cannot see in the... More

This resort is beautiful, but it seems to be going downhill. Our outdoor patio was not swept and there were lots of cobwebs. The patio of the lower unit was in serious disrepair, cement and bricks crumbling and the area itself full of dead branches and debris. The curtain rods in our bathroom were broken and sagging. The sheets were... More

A beautiful place. When I come to Durango in the future, I will be sure to visit this place again. The staff was beyond friendly...absolutely the best. We had to leave early for a jeep trip and had to miss breakfast. The staff stocked my frig the night before with breakfast, and the following morning the chef "a very nice... More

I do not like to write a negative review and seldom have to because I select where I'm going to stay carefully. Blue Lake Ranch is a lovely setting, the breakfasts were delicious and interesting, there are lovely lovely gardens, and the staff friendly. The rooms are spacious and could be terrific but they need attention and a thorough cleaning.... More

This enchanting inn surrounds you in nature, provides the comforts of home, and guarantees a restful and relaxing get away! The rooms are comfortable and cozy, the home made breakfasts are created from the freshest ingredients by Jackie and Julia in the kitchen. All staff are warm and friendly, and attentive to guests' individual needs. This is our third time... More

Beautiful location to relax in Colorado. Gorgeous property with gardens everywhere, nice lake, meadow, and some wildlife. The staff were all very courteous and a special shout out to Jackie who was just a delight every morning. I would have given Blue Lake Ranch five stars, but for the price we paid, there needs to be more attention to detail... More

I enjoyed every minute of my stay! A delightful inn, a delicious breakfast, a gorgeous lake, trees, flowers, bunnies...what more could one ask for? The inn keepers were wonderful and took such great care of me. Since I arrived during shoulder season, I pretty much had the main house to myself and received an unexpected upgrade to the Lake View... More

the blue lake ranch has been a four corners gem for some time. in my view on par with the post ranch inn in terms of the solitude it offers. the 200 ac. setting is breathtaking on all accounts located in a shallow valley with a spectacular view of the snow capped La Platas in the background. The grounds must... More

What an experience! The location was wonderful. We stayed in the Lower Springhouse. It was very private and quiet. We had a gorgeous view of the LaPlata Mountains. We saw mule eared deer grazing in the meadow around our rental. The rental itself was more than we expected. It was a two bedroom unit. Each bedroom had its own bathroom.... More

The inn keepers and entire staff were absolutely delightful! We were there Easter eve. There was an Easter egg hunt for the little ones and the grownups! Lower Spring House, where we stayed was exceptional. Not even the smallest detail was forgotten. The architecture, southwest...is beautifully done. Window dressings, hardware, fabrics,and linens are all outstanding. Chef Julia, the maestro in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on 200 secluded acres with its own trout-filled lake, the Ranch is tucked in a spring fed valley well off the county road. Famous for its spectacular gardens and mountain views the Ranch offers unparalleled year-round sensory delights, from the quiet of a winter's snowfall to the fragrance of 10,000 iris in summer bloom. Our heirloom (old fashioned) flower seeds and jams & honeys are available for purchase. ... more   less
