We stayed at the Arbor House for skiing over spring break, and were thrilled with the amenities and location. Driving from South Fork to Wolf Creek is much better than driving from Pagosa. The hosts at the Arbor House went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at home with them. We highly recommend the Arbor House to anyone visiting the South Fork / Wolf Creek area.

We stayed at the Arbor House Inn for our elopement. They offered exactly what we were looking for- a wedding-style elopement just for us that included everything from the cake to the photography (shout out to the AMAZING Ashography!!). We were blown away by the beautiful scenery and attention to detail at the AHI. We could go on and on about how wonderful our accommodations were. Our room, “the Lovin’ Oven” sat right on the river and was so cozy and romantic. Our breakfasts were as beautiful as they were tasty. Our elopement was elegant and beautiful and was everything we dreamed it would be. We LOVED everything about this place… but the secret sauce is the Brattons. Laurie, Keith, and Ashlee completely made our stay what it was. Wonderful people who exude pure passion for what they do- we will miss chatting with them over coffee every morning. They made every detail of our elopement special for us and having them on our marriage certificate as witnesses feels like a blessing to send us off. I can’t express our gratitude for them. The Brattons will always feel like family and the Arbor House will forever be a home away from home for us. Thank you for all you do for so many!

My wife and I were so incredibly fortunate to have found the arbor house! We were looking for a sort of luxury elopement, and that is exactly what they offered us. We felt so special on the day of our wedding, and the Brattons went above and beyond and did not miss a single detail on our special day. The food was incredible, the property was gorgeous, and we are counting down the days until we can stay again! we truly have found something special, and we plan to visit the arbor house many many more times!

We THOROUGHLY were THRILLED every MINUTE! What a warm cozy feeling the Jacuzzi provided! And the meals were healthy, creative, diverse, gourmet AND PHOTOGENIC! Everywhere I looked I saw the gorgeous results of 22 years of constant work and excellent creativity and thoughtfulness! Loved the balcony seating, the unique river and rock landscaping, and the very brilliant flowers! Hope to come again, and we plan to include you in our series of travel books around the world. Thank you ever so much! Joseph Bump and Herman Lee Taylor

I have stayed in many Bed and breakfast's in Colorado and this is hands down the best! This place is magical. The river runs along the back of the property. The rooms are clean, they have firepits, hot tub, and the breakfast was beyond delicious! We will be back!!

We visited Arbor House just a week ago and wanted to say that this was the best Bed & Breakfast we have ever stayed in! Keith and Laurie were excellent hosts and we couldn't have asked for better hospitality. Breakfast was wonderful and our room was nice with all needed amenities and cold drinks in our frig at all times. The hot tub at night was an extra bonus! We will definitely stay here again!!!

The Cottage on the Creek was more perfectly appointed than was advertised. My husband and I could not have been more delighted. Our Hosts were Super! The calming river flow right off the back porch was a high point during our stay. We will definitely be back.

Stayed in Rancher's Retreat on first floor. Private entry, as well as door to common area. Very well equipped and wheelchair accessible if needed. The location in South Fork is centrally located to Pagosa Springs and Creede. If you are a fly fisher person, the river behind the lodge has trout. We will return.....

The Arbor House B&B was a terrific welcome for us while visiting Colorado. A lovely B&B located picturesquesly on the river, the setting was exactly what we wanted. The accommodations surpassed our expectations. The hosts were friendly and welcoming, and they served the absolute best breakfast. We look forward to visiting here again.
