“Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Really a great place! Comfortable and clean room, lot of common space, big garden outside. Very good breakfast and very appreciated the sweets that every night the owner cooks for the guests. The B&B is located a bit outside of Durango in the middle of a gorgeous coutryside. We had a wonderful stay.

We can't wait to return to the Country Sunshine B&B. The place was charming, the food was superb, the hosts, Walter & Jodi, were delightful, our room was clean,comfortable and quiet and every evening there was a incredible gourmet dessert! There were also freshly baked cookies made daily for the guests, along with coffee or tea anytime. They even had a complimentary supply of sodas, water, beer and wine in the refrigerator downstairs. Just minutes outside downtown Durango, it's conveniently located just off Highway 550. It's serene setting offers beautiful mountain views and birds galore from the back porch. There is a hot tub on the premises and our room included air conditioning, a private bath and tv. There is plenty of hiking in the area as well as horseback riding which we did at the Rapp Corral. We've never stayed at a B&B we liked more. All the staff we came into contact with were equally as nice and welcoming. Their attention to detail to makes Country Sunshine a cut above the rest!! I would highly recommend it!

Jodi and Walter are the perfect hosts for a bed and breakfast - they are personable, have great humor, and know how to make their guests feel welcomed and at home. The B&B has a wonderful location, close to the river amongst the trees. The back deck is excellent for relaxing and socializing, as well as watching the wildlife. I have never seen such a variety of birds in my life, and the constant flurry of activity around the hummingbird feeders is amazing! There were easily 30-40 hummers around the feeders each day we were there, performing their aerobatics. The food here is equally spectacular - Walter's nightly desserts are better, and more beautifully presented, than many high-end restaurants, and his breakfasts are just as superb. The staff members at the B&B are equally fun and personable, and we enjoyed talking with them as well. We would recommend this B&B to anyone planning a stay near Durango, and it will be our go-to home away from home any time we are in the area in the future.

Room Tip: A room on the top floor may be better if you have allergies to cats, as the B&B's "pet...

Country Sunshine is a great name -- and description -- for this lovely spot just a few miles out of Durango. My two teens and I enjoyed the peaceful ambiance of this B&B and sitting on the expansive deck watching the many birds at the feeders -- especially the hummingbirds. Freshly baked cookies were a welcome treat upon arrival in the late afternoon. The hosts, Jodi and Walter, go out of there to ensure a great visit -- including a refrigerator with local beer, menus for restaurants, and maps for hiking in the area. A colorful chalkboard announces the evening dessert and upcoming morning breakfast -- loved the chocolate cake made with avocados and no sugar. Breakfast was a delight on the deck with blueberry pancakes and fresh fruit. I highly recommend this B&B to couples as well as families.

Jodi and Walter go above and beyond to make you feel at home. The refrigerator is full of local beer and wine, the grounds are beautiful, and the deck provides an amazing mountain view. Eating breakfast among all of the hummingbirds is a special treat. The breakfast is superior to any I've had at a B&B, and the evening dessert is even better. This was my second time at Country Sunshine, and I will certainly be back.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have AC, but open windows kept us cool at night, so it wasn't necessary. We staye...

Jodi and Walter are the most hospitable hosts we've encountered. Their delicious breakfasts and completely unexpected evening desserts could easily be served at a five star restaurant.
We stayed there for four days, and often lingered on the deck long after breakfast, enjoying the company and beautiful surroundings, as well as the variety of colourful birds that are attracted to the various feeders.
Country Sunshine is our favourite place to stay SW Colorado, and we will definitely be back.

We stayed three nights and were thoroughly pleased with Country Sunshine B&B and our hosts Walter and Jodi. The breakfasts, cookies and nightly gourmet desserts are always delicious. Walter and Jodi go the extra mile to make their guests feel at comfortable and at home. There is a huge deck with more hummingbirds than I've every seen in one place. I could have spent my entire vacation sitting and watching them. It was a fantastic experience and whenever we find ourselves in this area we will make this our home base.
