The Mt Goat Lodge did not disappoint! Great hosts, exceptional breakfasts and interesting setting made for a real get a way experience. Loved meeting the goats, hearing roosters crow and admiring chickens. Wonderful dogs were good guests too. Children might love to too.

okay, the shower curtain had a moose pattern and there was a certain alpine charm to the room decor but it all worked just fine. Goats outside the room were a hoot. Beautiful views/ Wonderful hosts and facilities. Excellent breakfasts. Anyone leaving hungry or under caffeinated has no one to blame I can't imagine NOT going back, it was wonderful.

My husband and I traveled around Colorado, hiking and enjoying scenery for 11 days. I could say I felt at home at Mountain Goat Lodge, but frankly, my home can't compare. Of the 5 very nice places we stayed during our Colorado vacation, this was one of our favorite. Friendly, "so glad you're here" greeting made me feel like it... More

We stayed at the Mountain Goat Lodge for a few days as a getaway. We really enjoyed it. The rooms are very comfortable, and there are portable swamp coolers to help beat the summer heat. The owner cooks breakfast each morning, and it's always delicious and very filling. You can hang out with the goats in the pasture, as well... More

We were looking for a place that was pet friendly and the Mountain Goat Lodge filled the bill. We thought we wanted a cabin but the retro camper option was great for us. Our dog is still a puppy and we didn't want to disturb other lodge guests. The views were great and the location was good for us since... More

Just had one night to stay in Salida, but had a comfortable and fun time with D'Arcy and Gina at the Mountain Goat Lodge. The views from the west facing upper rooms are fantastic!

We came up with our daughter for a night away from it all. As soon as week walked in the door we were greeted by their sweet dog. After we checked in we were welcome to walk around the property and check out their herd. The goats were grazing and the llama was on guard. Joseph the goat followed us... More

Beautiful room with everything you would ever need, comfortable bed, nice views -- excellent food (be sure to have the yogurt) -- a great place to hang out.
