Lovely, cute, comfortable, modern, designed with all the thoughtful little touches you want in a place you stay in. The Black Cat B&B is on a mountain side, looking out over Twin Lakes towards Mt. Elbert and Independence Pass. There are houses nearby, not close (the equivalent of four or five city blocks away) but you can't see any of them from your room. It's as if you have the valley to yourself. An absolutely perfect view, and so private, we slept with the curtains open in the moonlight, and woke a to beautiful sunrise at dawn. The decor is cat themed, but not overdone or tacky, as sometimes happens with B&B's. It was original and charming. Our bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom very nice with a good sized shower. Every thing is new, and designed to be a guest house. The guest rooms are on the bottom floor and very private, with a separate entrance from the rest of the house. The owner, Ric, was very nice and made us a wonderful sort of baked fruit French toast for breakfast, and served us fresh, good fruit and coffee. Absolutely quiet, except for the wind in the pines.
