Gina and D'Arcy are great hosts. Very knowledgeable about the area and vey helpful in ensuring we knew all the features of our camper. The food, scenery, serenity, breakfast (make sure you bring an appetite, the breakfasts are really delicious and filling), and lodging met all our expectations. Once again, thank you Gina and D'Arcy for a wonderful stay.

This was our second stay at Mountain Goat Lodge. This time, we were traveling with our grown daughter. We stayed in the Oberhasli Suite, which was clean and more than roomy for the three of us. There was an awesome bonfire with s'mores that evening. In the morning, a full breakfast that included yogurt and cheese made fresh from the... More

The bed and breakfast seemed too good to be true, the stay exceeded our expectations. It was my wife and I first time traveling with our two month old and two large dogs. The rooms were so clean it seemed like we were the first ones to have pets in the room. The off leash area is the size of... More

I spent two nights in one of the trailers and had a marvelous, peaceful, restorative retreat. It was quiet and beautiful setting. The goats were just plain fun to hang out with and watch. The main lodge was well kept, inviting and comfortable. The breakfasts were quite good, with variety and filling. There is a lot to keep you busy... More

This was our second stay at Mountain Goat Lodge and this time we brought our 8 year old granddaughter. She absolutely loved it and the animals. Gina and her son were kind enough and let the kids watch the goats get milked and let the kids have a turn which they loved! The breakfast was awesome!

We missed out on staying in the inn, but were able to stay in a new "retro" camper. This is a new addition to the Mountain Goat Lodge lineup and was so fun. We stayed up late visiting with the neighbors, enjoying the views. Once they get the trees trimmed a little more, the views will be wonderful:). The breakfast... More

THANK YOU for taking the time to write an interesting and wonderful review. I am working on getting some different mattresses in the campers other than the factory installed ones. As for your comments about trimming the trees - I don't know if I can do that, but will give it some serious thought. (our trees are such a precious... More

My children and I stayed here for two nights and we all loved it. We were warmly welcomed from the moment we set foot inside. The chickens, goats and llama are all so much fun to watch. The surrounding area is beautiful and there are many things to keep you busy during your stay. Our breakfasts both days were delish... More

Thank you Miami!! It is great to get visitors from so far away, since we mostly get people from CO and Texas and neighboring states. So wish you could have stayed longer as I truly enjoyed meeting your delightful little family. Thanks again for such a charming review - happy travels! More

It was wonderful to find a place so beautiful as well as dog friendly. It is Gina who makes the place super special. Her breakfasts and made to order coffee's are excellent.

Stayed the 'retro camper' for two nights to use as a base for a weekend of mountain biking. Perfectly content in the small space, super clean and nice views from porch. Hot tub was key after getting caught in afternoon downpour. Nice lodge to catch up on emails via Wi-Fi, great barista makes outstanding lattes. Nice breakfast sunday morning before... More

The MGI is a treat. We stayed in the Mt Princeton room which was a great size and nicely appointed. The inn keeper was very friendly and served up an unexpectedly delicious breakfast. We awoke to the sound of a rooster crowing which was a hoot and got a tutorial on goat milking. Fun indeed. And, try Fritz's in Salida... More

Thank you so much for your sweet review and great comments. Yes the rooster is the natural alarm clock around here. I sure do enjoy recommending the Fritz as well - they are the best. Hope to see you back soon, try the off-season, it is really quiet and nice. More
