My wife and I got away for 2 nights at this b and b and stayed in 1 of the spa houses, the other one was not occuppied so we had the area to ourselves. This over looks the lake in Curt Gowdey state park. A lovely setting in the hills of southern Wyoming half way between Laramie and Cheyenne. It is a drive to get anything you need so pick it up on the way there.
The spa house is very nice, roomy, clean and comfortable with a fridge and microwave in the small kitchen. The room is open except for the bathroom which has a nice tiled shower. The bed was comfortable, the pellet stove was not available without asking the owner to start it for you, not very convenient. The satellite T.V. had no instructions for it or to use the DVD player, we rented a movie and had to ask the owner to come over to show us how to use it, not very convient. The sauna was not available for use, the lounge chairs were not available either, too many excuses for things that should have been available.
The breakfast was very nice and brought to your room, the only problem is it cost $20.00 for a couple, not a good thing for a " Bed and Breakfast", this is the only time we have ever had to pay for breakfast at a B and B, not really a good thing.
I am not a rocket scientist, but I beleive this business could do better by reducing the rate and providing a breakfast as part of the cost, in this economy you need to provide more and not charge more for things that should be included in the price.
Overall this is a nice place, the owners are nice and friendly and the room is very comfortable and clean with nice views. Fortunately there was no one in the other spa house so we had the hot tub and grill for ourselves and did not have to share with someone else.
