I don't know if it was the snowy weather or being away, alone, with my wife for a few days, but this fabulous Durango B & B stole our respective hearts. We stayed for 4 nights so we got to know Scott the Innkeeper and his talented and attentive staff. Following our arrival we partook of the Inn's excellent on premises masseuse, Nicole for a couples massage before retiring for the night in our cozy, well appointed room with pirvate bath, step in shower and gas lit fireplace. Everything needed for an extended stay was there and breakfast each morning was freshly prepared by either Nicole or her Chef significant other, John. If you're lucky (and you enjoy chatting with young children) you'll get to meet one or more of the four of Scott & Ellen's delightfully conversant youngsters, not to mention the omni-present fat feline who patrols the Inn's entrance seemingly 24 hours a day, even in the snow!
We are already planning a return visit in the spring or summer to experience the Inn's colorful gardens and trees in full bloom. Located only a few minutes from historic downtown Durango, you'll feel like you're miles away quietly secluded in a Colorado forest. Lovely.
