“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Dillon is a small town and this is a nice quiet two-story "cabin" on Main Street. I stayed in the upstairs unit, which was fully stocked with a kitchen (fridge, microwave, dishes); a bedroom with two double beds; and a living room with Dish TV & another double bed, so it could easily sleep 6.

There were about 20 stairs to climb to get there, and there wasn't much noise insulation (I could hear the folks below talking). But they were quiet, the neighborhood is quiet and I got a good night's sleep.

Room Tip: Main floor room so you don't have to carry luggage upstairs.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2011

Backcountry Angler is primarily an outfitter, for fly fishing trips. But they also have some accomodations - a couple "suites" in a cabin in town, and river lodging outside of town. Dillon doesn't have many lodging options - a few lower level chain and local road motels basically. This is the one exception.

We stayed one night at the cabin in town, and also paid them to drive three of us out to Morrison Lake and the CDT trailhead for a week-long backpacking trip. We had a very nice stay, and were glad we could negotiate a ride to the CDT as well. Here are some details of the lodging...

--Friendly people running the place, easy to work with
--Cabin was plenty roomy for 3 people
--Location was convenient in terms of being in the middle of town, but also close to the interstate, while still having a quiet, calm feel to the area
--Rate was reasonable: $75 a night for the cabin, plus $10 per additional person (so it was $95 for three people)
--Cabin was clean and well-kept, though simple
--This is not a luxury accomodation - its pretty simple, but it has everything you should need.

I'd recommend it for the area. As long as you don't go in expecting luxury, and knowing you are paying $75 for a 3-room accomodation, you should be perfectly happy.

Side note for local CDT hikers etc... they are willing to negotiate a ride to various trailheads, which comes in handy.
