Innkeeper Sharon treated us to probably the best B&B food we have ever had, including a Scandinavian pancake one morning and heavenly bread pudding and local sausage the other. Her very homey ranch is a great location for a hiking weekend, set between The Old Spanish Trail to the west and the Great Sand Dunes to the east.

Rooms look nicer in the pictures than in reality, but there was a nice view, very comfortable bed (with nice linens) touches like alarm clock and extra mirror. Everything was clean and the host Sharon served a delicious breakfast, and included lovely touches like water pitcher with lemon in the room, turned-down bed with chocolates on our return from dinner....

We planned a trip to Southern Colorado to ride the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad and looked for a nice B&B in the area. Found the Windmill B&B just west of Monte Vista, forty minutes from the train, and booked two nights based on the very positive reviews found on Tripadvisor. The Windmill is four miles west of Monte Vista,... More

It took a bit of doing to find the Windmill, but, Oh, the prize we found. We were welcomed with a vast array of refreshments and warm conversation. We were lucky enough to be the only guests and had Sharon all to ourselves, so visited both before and after going for dinner, and then again at breakfast--with an absolutely stunning... More

We had the good fortune to spend a night at Sharon Kay's Windmill Bed and Breakfast and are so glad we did. Amenities usually found in far more well known spots, a comfortable room, a hearty, inventive breakfast and best of all, a charming and knowledgeable hostess -what else could travelers want?

She has good idea's and is a joy to be around! The Great Sand Dunes N.P. is the biggest attraction but their are many other... More

While this small B&B is a bit out of town, and on first impression looks modest, the rooms were very comfortable, and owner Sharon Kay goes out of her way to make guests feel welcome. So many nice touches--fresh pitcher of water in the room, free WiFi, a variety of homemade snacks and beverages always available, plenty of good Colorado... More

We have stayed here several times when visiting relatives in the San Luis Valley. We love it! The rooms are individally themed and the beds are super comfy. Each room has its own bath and a great view of the San Juans or Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The innkeeper, Sharon, is very accomodating to your needs and serves a tremedous... More
