We showed up tired and worn from driving for days. after getting unpacked and settled on the comfortable porch, and cracking a cold beer, the magic of Louis L'Amour Country cleaned the City right out of our heads. Both of our hosts were welcoming and informative. I felt like we were visiting relatives glad to see us. the Critters (gentle dogs and shy kitties) were present but not needy.
You are way out in the country, and the only sounds are the occasional car on a distant road, some birds and the charming sound of some of the donkeys braying occasionally on a nearby farm. I loved the ambiance they created.
the facility is a "no excuses" sort of place. Sue and Bob, despite their calm attitude, are first class professionals at the B&B business. they read their guests well and did a great job making a diverse group of folks comfortable.
Being a fan of western and Native American style art, I was disappointed that I did not make more time to enjoy the collection. We did make time for the Jacuzzi and that was a nice plus after a long day of riding trains and Jeeps in the mountains.
some other pluses were Wi-Fi (super fast) library, and great grounds around house to walk around. Oh yes, the food- was home cooked tastiness each morning ready at the requested time (complete with "to go" items.
