The Sunburst Lodge Bed and Breakfast was, perhaps, the most beautiful bed and breakfast I've ever stayed in. I have a preference for B&Bs over generic, standard hotels, and I seek them out -- typically nice properties and ones with character, charm, and/or history. The Sunburst Lodge is different in that it is not an antique B&B. It is, rather, quite modern and yet perfectly harmonized with the surrounding environment. In a nutshell, Sunburst Lodge is like a grand log-cabin atop of Casper Mountain, overlooking the valley into Casper-town itself. It is a slice of heaven.
Nancy is the proprietor of Sunburst Lodge, and her taste is impeccable. Down to the iron-cast towel bars or the tiling on the counter in the kitchen or the bathrooms, she didn't miss a single detail. She even has an elevator for the handicapped to allow access to all four levels of the house. Sunburst has an upscale, rustic charm, with virutally all of the furniture made out of logs. There is a strong log/wood motif, and it is executed with utter brilliance. There is a "tower" on the fourth floor from which one can read and/or look into the valley (which can also be done on the beautiful deck off the Great Room). On the third-floor, there is a loft overlooking the Great Room which magnificently highlights the A-frame architecture that over overlooks the valley.
We stayed in two rooms on the third level -- can't recall their names -- which were supremely comfortable with sleep-number-like beds and air conditioning (which really wasn't needed after dark). We also had an outdoor deck off of our rooms that had a stairway up to the tower or down to the main level (second level) from which we could access our car. Not a detail was overlooked. I would have loved to have spent more time there. We were at the outset of our six-plus week oddesey throught the Rocky Mountains, Canadian Rockies and British Columbia, and it was and will be, undeniably, the nicest of all of the lovely accomodations in which we stay.
The rates are extremely competitive, and for the money, Sunburst cannot be beat.
It is highly, highly, highly, highly recommended.
