“Awesome VACATION FROM TEXAS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2009

Our daughter made our travel arrangements. We were at first apprehensive that she had made our stay for 3 days at Country Sunshine too long. But when we got there, we felt so comfortable and Jodie and Walter made us feel so welcomed. It was so quite and peacefull, you couldn't ask for anything better. They even suggested tours and different sites to see which helped us tremendously. We were treated every morning to a wonderful breakfast. Walter is a great host and made us feel very special. He made homemade cookies and the desserts at night were simply delicious. In the evening, the guests, along with Walter and Jodie and their special guest Inga from Switzerland, sat on the deck, drank wine and visited. Most of the guests were from Texas and one couple was from Minnesota. We enjoyed the hummingbirds which were so fascinating and the beautiful scenery was gorgeous. It was truly a wonderful way to spend our 40th anniversary and will certainly recommend it to others.

Jodi & Walter were wonderful hosts. Walter is an excellent cook and source of information about the area. We will definately stay there again the next time we are in the Durango area.

Walter and Jodi have created a special atmosphere at Country Sunshine. We experienced a great mixture of their guests and family during a two-day stay- it feels like staying with some distant relatives who trun out to be really nice people! From the fanastic breakfasts served on a beautiful deck (humming birds included), to the nightly meetings at the fire pit, the property exudes a peaceful charm. It is the perfect location for anyone interested in soaring at Tall Timbers or riding the train from Durango to Silverton. Highly recommended!

From the time you're greeted by Walt and Jodi you feel their place is on loan to you. There are great public spaces and a beautiful deck overlooking a nicely landscaped, well kept yard. Breakfast is served on the deck each morning and you're entertained by the hummers and the dog that obeys the command: "walk around the table"....don't really know if Walt wants this one getting around as some guests may not enjoy feeding the dogs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was fresh and gourmet style. Walt lights candles on the deck tables each evening and built a fire in the pit each night we were guests....well except for one night....my son Ryan beat him to it and Walt was more than happy to have the 13 year old pitch in and help! As a matter of fact my son said, "Dad, where did you hear about Walt's place?....next time we come to Durango, can we stay with here!!" In other words, even my 13 year old son was made to feel right at home. He was the only child around but there's so much good public space and outdoor areas children wouldn't be noticed.

A really wonderful place to stay. The owners are super nice and very helpful. An excellent (and I MEAN excellent) breakfast is served on the deck each morning (which has a wonderful view). In the evening, Walter (the owner), makes wonderful desserts (we had bananas foster one night).

There's a full stocked fridge with Beer, soft drinks, etc always available too.

Durango is great place to visit in CO. If you go, be sure to stay here.

We loved it! I always wanted to visit Colorado and my visit to Durango was absolutely wonderful. I can't say enough great things about our stay at the Country Sunshine Bed and Breakfast. Walter and Jodi were the best! They made us feel so welcomed and so at home. The food and house were great...Wonderful desserts, clean rooms. AND the humming birds...what a treat to have them zipping around as we enjoyed breakfast. The views were absolutely breathtaking.

I know we will be back...hopefully very soon.

Thanks Walter and Jodi for making our stay in Durango memorable.

Sincerely,
Elva and Kurt

My husband and I found this b&b through Trip advisor, and booked ahead via the internet. Intially we were only going to stay one night as we were on a months vacation touring south-west USA. We were unable to drag ourseleves away! After we left we really missed the dogs! And Jodie and Walter of course!! We hope they have many successful years where they can spread their special charm to many other lucky visitors.
