“Just plain awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

I've stayed at this B&B a few times now, and Walter and Jody are fantastic hosts! The place has a lot of country charm, and saying Walter is a great cook is a severe understatement. His breakfasts compete (and win) against any high-end hotel or restaurant I've ever dined in, and his desserts in the evening are to die for. I particularly like his chocolate chip cookies, which blow away any other chocolate chip cookie on the planet.

The atmosphere is very cozy and relaxing. The deck is comfortable for just kicking back in the summer, and the hot tub is a good therapy following a long day of skiing or snowboarding. The location is about half way between Durango and Purgatory, so it's a short trip to the slopes and it's an easy run into town for dinner.

We researched the Country Sunshine B&B on the Internet extensively prior to booking our two night stay as part of our 50th anniversary driving trip. The only disappointment with this stay was that we did not spend more time at this relaxing and comfortable inn. Walter and his staff were helpful, efficient, friendly, and made our stay so very enjoyable. Walter’s wife was away during our stay - we will return at a future date to meet her. Walter is an outstanding chef – his breakfasts are superb! Tasteful, excellently prepared and served. The weather was excellent which provided for seating outside on the porch for breakfast. Homemade chocolate chip cookies are always available and he prepares an outstanding desert every evening. Refreshments are always available as well.
The B&B is approximately ten miles north of Durango, CO on highway 550. The B&B is surrounded by magnificent trees and the deck provides a beautiful view – the muted rushing of the nearby Animas River, although not visible from the property, provides a relaxing background for the B&B. Hummingbirds love the place and are active throughout the day. The many types of birds are beautiful to watch and listen to from the porch.
Most of the guests we met were return visitors to Country Sunshine – one couple was there for the seventh time – We believe that return customers tell the real story of the Country Sunshine B&B and we will become those who return again.
Thank you, Walter and staff, for a great experience.
Jerry & Delores

We stayed at Country Sunshine for three nights in August, 2014. Walter is probably the best chef we've ever met - the gourmet breakfasts each morning and desserts each night were superb!! Delicious fresh cookies were made available every day. Complimentary beverages are provided, lots of common areas in which to relax, watch the birds (the hummingbirds could keep us entertained for hours!), or TV if the weather is inclement. Service is exceptional. We stayed in the Private room and the bed was very, very comfortable. The B & B is very clean and service is exceptional - Walter and staff were happy to provide area information, advice and directions, as well as attend to every need (or whim). We wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Durango!!

My family and I stayed at this B and B for 3 nights in August. It is perfect!! There were 3 of us and we stayed in the Aspen room and had lots of space. Everything is clean and comfortable. We felt right at home! Do not miss breakfast and dessert in the evening. Both are really, really good! We loved the hammock in the back yard, the birds, and the views! We had a wonderful time in Durango and a fabulous stay at Country Sunshine B and B!!

My wife and I have stayed with Walter and Jody countless times. Their B & B is the only place we will stay when we go to Durango. The property is beautiful, great views and wildlife every were. We have even made a few trips where we never left the B&B. Their friendship and food are like no other. Walter's breakfast and deserts are amazing and he will gladly share any recipe. Jodi is wonderful, always kind and attentive. They both will go out of their way to make sure you have the best stay possible.

This is an amazing B&B just outside of Durango. Walter and his staff made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Walter made the most marvelous breakfasts and the desserts at night were just as good. The room was very clean and comfortable. We made reservations for next year!

We travel quite a bit, and stay at Bed And Breakfasts as much as possible. This was our second stay at Country Sunshine, and you will NEVER do better! This is not only a B&B, but also an experience for the sole. Jodi & Walter welcome you to one of the most beautiful B&Bs you will ever visit, then then introduce you to all the amenities. This is a spot of Heaven!

At 9:00PM desert is served by Walter, an Austrian Chef who will just make your mouth water.

The at 8:00AM is a breakfast that we remember over and over.

If you miss Country Sunshine, you have missed Durango!
