We recently traveled throughout New Mexico and Colorado, staying at several places during the trip. Sundance Bear was our first B&B and by far the best place we stayed during the entire trip. The grounds and view are just amazing, and the warm welcome we received from Bob and Sue was genuine and made us feel right at home. They are very knowledgeable about the area and shared that with us, resulting in interesting discussions. We traveled to Mesa Verde and rode the Durango Railroad from the lodge. Bob even got up early on our railroad day to serve us muffins and yogurt before we left, ensuring a good start to the day. The other mornings we were served delicious hot breakfasts and then given snacks to get us through the day. We were treated better at Sundance Bear lodge than we treat ourselves at home! And oh, yes - Bob and Sue are art collectors and the pieces we enjoyed in the great room were just unbelievable - like enjoying our own art museum while sitting beside a nice, warm fire. We stayed in the Mesa Verde room and were very comfortable - Bob had even lit the corner fireplace to warm our Florida blood! We thank the lodge so much for making our vacation wonderful and highly recommend it to all travelers.
