This was my first stay at Mountain Goat Lodge and we had a stellar time. We opted to stay in the Retro Campers and brought our golden retriever along. We also had access to all the B&B amenities: the hot tub was relaxing, engaging with the goats, llama, and chickens was fun, breakfast with the other guests was pleasant, visiting... More

Thank you so much for such a detailed review. We really enjoyed meeting you guys! So glad everything worked in the trailers - being so new, we are still working out the minor details. We welcome you BAAAAACK anytime, and remember we are open year-around. It is fun to visit in the fall when it is peaceful and cool and... More

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.

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.
