The other reviews here were the reason we chose this place and they were absolutely CORRECT! The lodgings are wonderful- cozy, homey and yet a touch of sophistication due to the artistic style of Peggy, our hostess. We stayed in the Lake house and the Bungalow- 7 of us. The gardens were lovely and so creatively adorned with the most unusual items ! Grounds- all 60 acres are perfect for wandering, birding, or just sitting looking at the coots and grebes- with their ducklings- on the pond. The view was great to bewgin with but when a rainbow was seen coming from the mountain tops one evening - it was hard to top! Peggy and Lee were available and helpful, but never intrusive. We all felt so at home. We were close to some hiking, and took a day trip to Mesa Verde, which can be seen from the property. We also took a day trip north to Ouray- a fantastic village!
