We stayed here for a long weekend in October 2013 and had an unforgettable experience. Our room faced the mountain, in all its fall splendor, and the herd of goats and alpacas below. It was entertaining just to sit on the patio and watch the baby goats playing. The location was ideal, too, for going to Salida, Mount Princeton, and... More

We just stayed 1 night as a halfway point from Denver to Telluride and we wish we could have stayed longer. Gina was the most gracious host and our puppies had a blast and were treated amazingly. Gina even provided us with a pack n play for our son. We highly recommend this amazing place and will definitely be back.... More

Stayed in the Princeton room over Christmas 2013, which the views were great. The room was very nice and spacious with amenities such as the mini fridge with complementary water. The breakfast had a very generous selections of food items and coffee, teas and espresso. The host was very accommodating and hospitality for a B&B was very warm and inviting.

If Old Mac lived in THIS place, he would still be there! The accommodation afforded all the extras one could desire, including those available for our dog. The property includes 20 acres, and the barn and paddock area for the goats, llama, and assortment of chickens was well-kept. Fresh goats' milk and cheese is available, and one couldn't hope for...

We were among the first guests when MGL opened 4 years ago, and we have returned many times. This place just keeps getting better. The majestic view of Mt.

Gina is a wonderful host. You feel like a part of her family almost instantly. She makes incredible breakfast and includes her goat milk products (try the goat yogurt). She even kindly accommodated our dietary restrictions. :) Plus, goats!

We had the wonderful opportunity to stay at the Mountain Goat Lodge last weekend. The accommodations are excellent and the food is absolutely magnificent! We had the opportunity to see Gina's greenhouse from which all of the fresh veggies & fruit are grown. It's a work of art! We also had fun playing with the goats, especially the baby ones.... More

I was calling blind - we wanted to ski Monarch but I hadn't been up there in about 30 years so couldn't remember the area AT ALL. Had been to Salida last summer and really enjoyed. Well Monarch isn't really a 'town' like Vail, Summit County - looks like there are places to maybe stay close to the ski resort,... More
