We stayed in The Rio Grande Room for one night. Generally it is as advertised. Had a good nights sleep. Wish we would have had more time in South Fork. We decided to forego the continental breakfast and paid for a good made from scratch breakfast. My only concern is while advertising everyone needs to have a smile or "go... More

We were on our way to camp near West Fork of the San Juan river late in the evening when it started to rain. Decided to get a hotel & begin our back pack trip the next refreshed & rested, instead of freezing and wet car camping! This lodge is fantastic! Rustic & full of personality. The owner woke up...

Very nice place to stay on our Harley trip. Room was outstanding with a great bed and a whirlpool tub in the bathroom. The portable fan was a great added touch as we use one at home to sleep with! People were friendly and took care of anything we needed. Had a great breakfast the next morning before leaving.

Our stay at the Spruce Lodge was reminiscent of life in the early 1920's. Although modern amenities have been added for the convenience of the modern traveler, enough of the original rustic lodge remains to transport your senses back in time. Antiques and old photos line the hallway upstairs, highlighted by the display of a lace wedding dress. Docile dogs... More

When we arrived about 90 minutes before the 3:00 check-in time, the office door was locked, so I called the on-site owner to ask her for a very small favor that only took about 3 minutes away from what she was doing. She made no bones about the fact that she was very annoyed by my request. Not good customer... More

Your simple request that only took 3 minutes of my time could have cost us our restaurant license FOREVER. No, I can NOT put that bottle of breast milk in our restaurant refrigerator. I will not.

They are Nice people. The room was Definitely clean. It was A little dated but worth the money we paid . Our TV never worked but they did try to get it repaired. Breakfast not as good as advertised but adequate. Colorado is beautiful. We had a good time camping.

Hello Berinta, Thanks for letting us know about the TV. We purchased another one the next day and all is well. We ARE overwhelmed. Summer is very difficult and most people are not very understanding of that. Please come see us in the Fall when things slow down. We'll buy you breakfast and have time to sit down and chat....

Charming setting and cool old rustic Lodge. We stayed in the Galbraith upstairs in the main Lodge. Staff was friendly and helpful. The stairs going up resonated with some major creaking and groaning. Upstairs hallway floor also very creaky and sway backed from the years. The floor in the room was also old and unlevel due to the age of... More

Hi Don, Thanks for your review. It was nice having you here for a few days. We also like the creaky old floors and historic feel of the Lodge. It took a lot of thinking and planning to get modern renovated bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs into an old building without changing the feel of the place. There are only a... More

My family and I pulled in late to the lodge last night. Not only was Dee great on the phone, when we called, but Marie was awesome at check in. She even dropped by to make sure we had items to make sure our family stay was comfortable. The rustic charm was just what we needed to relax for another... More

This is our second visit. The first visit was marred by a health scare, but the stay was just as good! We love the cabin we have been assigned. They have made updates to the furniture and bedding. There is a box fan in the room which I love just for the white noise! It is very reasonably priced, the... More

Recently my family (and sister's family) stayed here for two nights, each in our own rooms. The second night we went to give the kids baths and saw the tubs were thick with scum and grime in both rooms. We weren't expecting anything fancy. Just wanted some place clean and with indoor plumbing. My brother in law went to let... More

Every guest is given the owner's personal cell phone number at check in with specific instructions to call 24 hours a day if they need ANYTHING. You stayed 3 nights in two rooms with four kids and complained about dirty bathtubs at checkout. There were ample opportunities for you to tell us the bathrooms were unsatisfactory including each morning during... More
