“Fun at Blue Lake Ranch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2004

We stayed at Blue Lake Ranch in March, 2004 and had a great time. We were in one of the Casita's that is not attached to the main house and the accommodations were absolutely beautiful, had a great view, always clean and well kept. All the extras were there - even tile warmers in the bathrooms for those chilly mornings. BJ offered breakfasts with lots of variety for our whole family to enjoy and the rest of the staff was always friendly and helpful. Guests eat at separate tables and one morning David, the owner, stopped by to check on our stay. He offered us some excellent advice on what to do and where to go - even checked into some places for us to make sure we arrived at the right place at the right time. Durango and the surrounding area offers lots for families and it was nice to have a place to call home where we could watch movies, play games and enjoy family time after a full day. It is a short drive out of Durango, but that just makes it all the better for viewing the stars.
