Four Mile Creek is maybe the most hidden Gem I have found in my travels. How to describe it ?, that's not easy because I have never run across anything quite like it. Lets start with the physical description ; that's easy, its 2 acres with a farm house, barn, and three cabins along a creek with lots of trees set in the Rocky Mountain splendor. The original log farmhouse is where fantastic breakfasts are served and you will get to know your hosts , Jim and Sheryl. The accommodations are comfortable and cozy. But if you are looking for over -the -top , you might be better driving up to Aspen. So, what makes it a Gem ?...... Jim and Sheryl are unique artists who have the ability to create art from anything old by finding a new use for it or way to display it. I could give some examples, but I'm afraid it could not do it justice. The grounds are kinda like a museum in that many items will remind you of where we have come from. You wil see that these previously discarded items are transformed from neglected ( of no use ) items to true art.. The peace of the creek running by and the joy of creativity at every turn makes this a unique place for your mind and body to restore itself.…
Four Mile Creek B&B is something special. Jim and Sheryl are wonderful hosts who treat you like family. They are true artists who have created a retreat that you never want to leave. The grounds are beautiful, the accommodations have a cozy/rustic charm, and the barn is indescribably awesome. We even took a few engagement pictures in the loft! 10/10 would stay again.
This was a great place for me, my husband and our two teenagers to stay after a day of skiing at sunlight. The cabin was cozy, the hosts were warm and engaging and the breakfast was fantastic! We enjoyed exploring the barn and property a bit and hearing some of the stories about the antiques on display.
Jim and Sheryl are wonderful hosts who made us feel right at home — calling to provide directions since the main bridge was closed, checking on dietary restrictions, recommending a restaurant in Carbondale, and offering us cookies upon our arrival. We stayed in the creek side cabin, but were encouraged to check out the Indian teepee, bunkhouse and barn. The breakfast was amazing!!
Hard for me to understand the previous review, as my wife and I also visited in September and our experience was the polar opposite. Jim was extremely easy to deal with for the booking and with directions for arriving at night. We stayed in the cozy creek-side cabin with the creek gurgling just outside the bedroom window. The grounds are lovely; the barn loft "museum"/performance stage a unique bit of Americana, and the breakfast featured homemade personal quiches. On a week-long trip through Colorado and Utah this was easily our top-rated lodging. Excellent choice if visiting Glenwood Springs, and not that far a drive from Aspen. Thanks Jim and Sheryl for a memorable stay!
