I never write reviews, but I just had to write one for the Blue Lake Ranch. We took our two young boys on an adventure vacation out West and were so pleased with this B&B that we didn't want to leave. We stayed in the Sunset Casita which overlooked the beautiful mountains. The cabin was nicely furnished with southwestern decor... More

It is rare to name a place that would be part of your 'top 10 repeat destinations." Blue Lake Ranch is one such place. It meets all the requirements for a 5* stay. It is a beautiful inn with remarkable artifacts and design, typical of the region. Each room has been decorated from top to bottom with wonderful art, architectural... More

We had been told by friends that Blue Lake Ranch is a tresure & they were absolutely right. We stayed in the Garden Room and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Breakfast was VERY good, we were blessed to meet Dave..the epitome of hospitality. We were late arriving & even though Nancy had already left for the evening..when she saw us come... More

We had a wonderful experience at Blue Lake Ranch. The setting is beautiful, peaceful, and quiet, but the location also provides you with the opportunity to take great adventures nearby. You quickly feel relaxed as you settle in. The accommodations at Blue Lake are fantastic. The rooms are decorated with obvious care and attention, especially those in a Southwestern theme.... More

This place could be very nice if they payed even a little attention to detail. As far as I can tell the only thing the maid did each day when she came in was fold up our wet towels and re-hang them on the rack. We stayed here 5 nights and had a rather large spider that we left living... More

We rented the River House, the Cabin by the lake, and the Pinion Suite for extended family ranging from 87 to 19 months attending a wedding. Two out of three had mice, all had spiders/and bugs of assorted shapes and sizes, holes in screens, bees inside, not maintained, not vacuumed in some time --maybe since the cabin was built, they...

blranch, General Manager at Blue Lake Ranch, responded to this review

The River House sits one mile from the Main Inn, on 80 acres on the banks of the tranquil La Plata River. This cozy homestead house offers our guest the true ranch experience and privacy that is advertised as ideal for nature lovers and children to enjoy the ranch land that surrounds the property. Due to the natural setting, and... More

We spent 2 nights in the Sage Room as we toured Colorado. Our stay at the Blue Lake Ranch was the highlight of our trip. Room was comfortable and quiet. Grounds are beautiful. Breakfast was divine. Everyone was so hospitable. Loved waking to fresh ground coffee in the room each morning. Hope to return some day.

Rooms are in separate buildings (mostly with two to three rooms). The rooms are quite large and some have full kitchens along with the living area. Some have beautiful views of the mountain ranges (in May still snow covered). The owner is very congenial and pleasant to talk with. The breakfast is a nice spread. It is very close to... More
