I highly recommend this bed and breakfast. We visited in late February, and stayed in the River House. It is very spacious, new, and clean. Kitchen is wonderful, but could have used a few better cooking utensils and better cooking pans, but we were able to make do with what was available. The windows and heated floors were fabulous.

This is the nicest place we have stayed. We were only able to stay for one night. We were upgraded rooms. The staff is very friendly. The suite was very clean. The breakfast was very good. We look forward to our next visit.

Just returned from a long weekend at our new favorite place! We were celebrating my husband's retirement and had an absolutely perfect experience.

My wife and I stayed here while visiting Durango for the weekend. For the price of a small room in Durango, we were able to stay in a large one bedroom villa surrounded by a relaxing, natural setting. Scott, the manager, and the rest of the staff were very helpful.

One of the reasons we stayed at Blue Lake is because they advertised having a lake stocked with trophy size rainbow trout. In fact there are no trout in the lake, only carp. The trout were all killed by an algae and it was stocked with trout in an attempt to remove the algae. This apparently happened several years ago... More
