“Great place to stay in Salida,CO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

The Mountain Goat Lodge was very warm and inviting. The owners were friendly and sure did serve up a wonderful breakfast. The rooms were spacious and clean. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone if they want a great place to stay if they are going to ski Monarch Mountain or go snowmobiling; they were only 30 minutes down the road.

Room Tip: Choose either the Mt Princeton room or the Sawatch rooms... Great view of the mountains!

It was great to find a B&B that welcomes dogs. There is even an outdoor fenced area where the dogs can be off leash. Just watch out out for the cacti! The accommodations were very comfortable, we found the outdoor entrance to our suite to be convenient, and the breakfasts were fabulous. It was a wonderful pastoral setting and so fun to meet the menagerie and watch the milking process and try our hands at it. The hot tub was very nice. Loved the robes! Thanks, Gina and company, for a great stay. We'll be back!

Room Tip: The Oberhasli Suite was very comfortable, roomy, and the outside entrance was handy. It is also whe...

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us, Mary! It's great to hear the little touches like the robe and quality time with the goats made such an impact. We'd love to have your crew back any time! The hot tub is especially welcoming this time of year! Thank you for the review.

The Mountain Goat Lodge was the perfect setting for a relaxing retreat with my 93 year old mother. We had booked one room for three people. Upon arrival, at Gina's suggestion, we moved Mom into another room so that we would all be more comfortable. Gina was very accommodating and offered a very good rate to us for the second room. It was apparent from the beginning that she wanted her guests to have a great experience and to feel at home. The views from the lodge common area and from the rooms are beautiful and unspoiled, and Mom could "put her feet up" in the afternoon while enjoying the vista ( and so could we!). The breakfasts were fresh, plentiful and very good. We hope to return!

My husband and I relished our weekend, pet-worry free, relaxing time at Mountain Goat Lodge. Nearby hiking offers exercise with or without challlenge, Salida offers fun night-life, and Gina offers down-to-earth hospitatliy. Most unusual is a lodge full of dog-lovers that afforded our dogs a comfortable place to socialize. Gina and her son D'arcy answered all questions with aplomb. The breakfasts were delectible. Lovely views, hot-tubbing, and friendly animals added up to a perfect get-a-way for dog people.

We're so glad we can be a little dog-lover's oasis in the Colorado mountains, Deirdre. It makes us so happy to hear about a guest enjoying not only staying with us, but their time in town too. Salida really is great! If there's anything we can do to make your next visit even better, please let us know. We can't wait to see you again.

My husband and I have stayed at the Mountain Goat Lodge twice, and have thoroughly enjoyed our visits. We have two four-legged friends that enjoyed watching the alpacas, goats and chickens that were on-site along with the many hikes around the property. Gina and D'arcy were wonderful hosts, and were very accommodating to our needs. We highly recommend this property to anyone who has dogs that they want to bring with them on their travels.

We booked the Mt Goat Lodge for the first night of our honeymoon - so expectations were high! They were also fulfilled. The Lodge is a beautiful space, with a lovely common-area living room. It also has a fantastic hot tub out back with a whole hot tub patio area that was barely shown on the website - and was just a beautiful place to sit and look at the stars all evening. Our room was huge, very clean, and with lovely views of the mountains and goats. The goats (and dogs and alpacas) added a huge amount to our experience -- you should be an animal lover here, but we are, and as animal lovers, it was just wonderful to have so many happy and well cared for animals around. (But a warning: the goats were so cute and friendly that my husband fell in love with goats thanks to our stay there, so now we may be getting goats - this could happen to you).

Breakfast was wonderful - fresh goat yogurt and fruit, a baked egg dish, fresh breads and cakes. There's an expresso maker and they will make all sorts of coffee and non-coffee based drinks with it. And when no one is manning the kitchen, guests still have a tea and coffee area to enjoy on our own.

The location is slightly out of the town of Salida - but it's just a ten minute drive, and was simply not an issue. Meanwhile, the mountain views are lovely as a result of the location.

One of the nicest b and bs I've stayed in, especially in Colorado and most especially in the Salida area,
