My husband and I stayed a week with Walter & Jodi at their B&B and I have only good things to say. The room we stayed in was so clean and the window was open when we arrived so the fresh air was very welcoming. Norma showed us around and was very friendly from the beginning. Walter and Jodi are both so kind and make you feel like they are so glad you are staying with them. Walter found out that my husband loves jalapeno peppers so he made it a point to include them in his breakfasts. Mark really got a kick out of that, we both did! The girls that were helping Walter & Jodi were Kristyn and Meira(hope I spelled that correctly). They were both so sweet and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure our coffee cups were filled and always asked to make sure we had everything we needed. Walter always came out and checked on us to make sure we were enjoying our breakfast. Sitting out on the deck to have our morning coffee and watch the birds was so relaxing every morning. If there was a place like this in Oklahoma I would stay at least once a month but there's not so Walter and Jodi we will return again some day! Thank you for your gracious hospitality to two Oklahoma travelers who miss you already!

It just does not change! It is a wonderful bed and breakfast, owners we now consider our good friends (Walter and Jodi), serving a great breakfast which is varied on a daily basis, in a location that is the most relaxing place we have stayed at of any bed and breakfast we have been too. Their place is very clean and accommodating to your needs which only serves to enhance your experience.

Enough said!!!

289 reviewers - make that 290 - can't be too far off. We have stayed at B&B's all over the country and Country Sunshine is one of the very best. Our 3 day stay went far too quickly. The service started with my reservation when Jodi explained that we could get the Durango to Silverton railroad to pick us up at a stop near the B&B saving a lot of time and allowing us to not miss one of Walter's exceptional breakfasts. The rooms are clean and spacious and the B&B has several very comfortable common areas. Fresh baked cookies are always available. The deck is a wonderful place to eat or just sit when the weather is good. Water, wine, and beer are available for guests. Did I mention Walter's exceptional cooking? Well it doesn't stop with breakfast. Each evening, he prepares a special desert. An attached photo shows the presentation of one of his cream puffs. And on the night before we left, Walter put on a show with bananas foster.

Our stay here was truly wonderful. The breakfast was amazing out on the deck with the hummingbirds zooming around. Walter even shares his recipes with guests. They make you feel like family while you are visiting. Our room was beautifully decorated and so clean. There are many places to relax here, so you don't feel as though you need to spend all your time in your room. Very large selection of teas with nice mugs and these are available to you at any time. We won't stay anywhere else in Durango from now on!

Our extended family of 11 (adults) spent 3 nights in 5 of the rooms at Country Sunshine B&B. All rooms were spotless, with charming decor and thoughtful touches throughout. With perfect weather, we enjoyed our breakfast on the large deck overlooking the river valley and always-busy hummingbird and bird feeders. Breakfasts were created from the freshest ingredients and absolutely delicious; the staff was fun, friendly, and attentive. Evening desserts brought every day to a splendid close. Walter provides his recipes to guests who would like to try gourmet cooking when they return home. Our group took full advantage of the complementary wine, beer, soft drinks, and bottled water ... and the never-empty cookie plate. In the evenings, we enjoyed talking around the campfire, in the hot tub, and on one of the decks. With the spring runoff, the sound of the flowing river creates a soothing, relaxing atmosphere for everyone. Away from the city lights of Durango, the dark skies revealed countless stars, satellites, and even a few meteors. We had anticipated a pleasant stay based on the reviews, but our visit far exceeded everyone's hopes & expectations. If you need it, the Wi-Fi worked flawlessly; most rooms had TVs and cable, but I don't think any got used more than ~1 hour total in our 3-night stay. I have stayed in numerous "luxury" hotels around the world, but I have never stayed at a more relaxing, friendly place ... and savored such culinary treats. Jodi & Walter, their staff, and wonderful home in a spectacular location all combine to turn "lodging" into a true vacation. They truly do everything possible to delight their guests. I hope we have the opportunity to return in the future. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION !!!

Room Tip: The Writer's Den is directly under the kitchen; if you're a light sleeper, you may hear footsteps when breakfast preparation starts ~6am.
