We stayed at Blue Lake Ranch for our daughter's wedding August 2014 and cannot say enough about how wonderful this place is!! The staff and management were more than helpful with every detail of the wedding; we did not need a wedding planner! We stayed here several times before the wedding meeting vendors and making arrangements and every stay was... More

A charming group of cottages in the countryside around Durango Colorado A new owner is doing great improvements that will insure the property's future quality. Be sure to check the rooms and cottages carefully as they differ greatly. My favorite was the Sunrise room. Breakfast was good but could step up with more individualized meals. A great group of people... More

I'm a sucker for these quaint USA B&B's. And when you find one, you need to shout loud, as they are usually family run, by people who give... well, you know what they give..... and more. The Blue Lake is just one such of these. I suppose in some respect it (and it's type), are the truly unique hotels. Every... More

As other reviewers have commented, it would be a shame to write a bad review of such a wonderful place. I agree with that and so will start by saying that I would recommend this B&B to anyone. We had a wonderful time. The breakfasts were fantastic, the Spring House was superb with a great interior and a back deck... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in the la plata vista room. When I arrived air conditioner in room was broken no TV for both nights, noise from guests at patio on lower level ruined my balcony peaceful time. I found the grounds to be in big need of trimming had to walk through many weeds to get to lake.... More

My friend's daughter got married at The Ridgewood Event Center (a gorgeous venue!) & rented The Upper and Lower Springs homes for some of the family. I was totally blown away by how nice the homes were. Every other home we looked at there were all very nice as well. The breakfasts were amazing & Jackie, well, we all wanted... More

My wife and I stayed at the Sunset Casita for a destination wedding. This is a very nice place that is out away from civilization but is only 20 minutes from Durango. Our room was awesome and very peacful and relaxing. Breakfasts always had a good variety to choose from and some great coffee. Very gracious and genuine new owners... More

Blue Lake is beautiful, pleasantly off the beaten track, wonderfully peaceful. This was our second visit, and it has already become a home away from home for us -- a favorite destination. The staff is gracious, knowledge, and extremely helpful. The inn is very family friendly and low-key, as well as elegant; we have always enjoyed interacting with other guests,... More

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
