Country Sunshine Bed and Breakfast sits on a hillside just off U.S. 550 about 15 minutes north of Durango. We paid $125 a night to stay in the Pine Room.
So much of what I've read turned out to be true. The owners, Walter and Jodi, were excellent hosts who know the area well and seemed to think of everything we needed before we needed it. They serve amazing gourmet breakfasts on a deck overlooking the mountain across the river valley. They are some of the friendliest, hardest-working people I've met in a long time.
The inn's location is ideal as a launching point for exploring the surrounding mountains. Several spectacular hikes are within 20 minutes to the north. Durango's restaurants and tourist attractions are about 15 minutes to the south.
What really separates Country Sunshine from other inns are the little details. Every guest will probably have a different list. Mine include Walter lending me his rain jacket for a hike and his tips on things to do in the area, including where to catch the train and where to hike.
I'd recommend this place to anyone looking to spend a few quiet nights in the Durango area.
