My husband and I relished our weekend, pet-worry free, relaxing time at Mountain Goat Lodge. Nearby hiking offers exercise with or without challlenge, Salida offers fun night-life, and Gina offers down-to-earth hospitatliy. Most unusual is a lodge full of dog-lovers that afforded our dogs a comfortable place to socialize. Gina and her son D'arcy answered all questions with aplomb. The breakfasts were delectible. Lovely views, hot-tubbing, and friendly animals added up to a perfect get-a-way for dog people.

We're so glad we can be a little dog-lover's oasis in the Colorado mountains, Deirdre. It makes us so happy to hear about a guest enjoying not only staying with us, but their time in town too. Salida really is great! If there's anything we can do to make your next visit even better, please let us know. We can't wait to see you again.

My husband and I have stayed at the Mountain Goat Lodge twice, and have thoroughly enjoyed our visits. We have two four-legged friends that enjoyed watching the alpacas, goats and chickens that were on-site along with the many hikes around the property. Gina and D'arcy were wonderful hosts, and were very accommodating to our needs. We highly recommend this property to anyone who has dogs that they want to bring with them on their travels.

We booked the Mt Goat Lodge for the first night of our honeymoon - so expectations were high! They were also fulfilled. The Lodge is a beautiful space, with a lovely common-area living room. It also has a fantastic hot tub out back with a whole hot tub patio area that was barely shown on the website - and was just a beautiful place to sit and look at the stars all evening. Our room was huge, very clean, and with lovely views of the mountains and goats. The goats (and dogs and alpacas) added a huge amount to our experience -- you should be an animal lover here, but we are, and as animal lovers, it was just wonderful to have so many happy and well cared for animals around. (But a warning: the goats were so cute and friendly that my husband fell in love with goats thanks to our stay there, so now we may be getting goats - this could happen to you).

Breakfast was wonderful - fresh goat yogurt and fruit, a baked egg dish, fresh breads and cakes. There's an expresso maker and they will make all sorts of coffee and non-coffee based drinks with it. And when no one is manning the kitchen, guests still have a tea and coffee area to enjoy on our own.

The location is slightly out of the town of Salida - but it's just a ten minute drive, and was simply not an issue. Meanwhile, the mountain views are lovely as a result of the location.

One of the nicest b and bs I've stayed in, especially in Colorado and most especially in the Salida area,

We stayed at the Mountain Goat Lodge in late September. The whole experience was wonderful. Gina and D'arcy are great hosts and their property is absolutely beautiful. Loved spending every morning sipping one of their espressos sitting on the back deck looking at the mountain peaks. Great way to start any day. My wife took the cheese making class and really enjoyed it and walking the property with the goats following us was a real treat....

Our room was very comfortable and the large open living area was a nice place to hang out and talk with Gina and the other guests. In addition, the bed was perfect and we liked the sheets so much that we bought two sets to take home with us. This was our first time to visit but we plan on coming back up next summer when the Texas summer gets oppressively hot.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Oberhasli Suite which was roomy and comfortable. This is the room that we will req...

We agree that a morning espresso with mountains involved is hard to top. It was our pleasure, Mark! You and your wife were such fun to have stay with us, and we look forward to the summer. Hope those sheets are still treating you well and serving as a nice souvenir from your trip. Enjoy that mild Texas winter for us and we'll see you back here soon.

i chose this b&b for a fall getaway because it was dog-friendly--and that's an understatement. we had a lovely time gazing at the goats (and the stars from the hot tub), and our pup had lots of fun with house pup sookie and another visiting dog. breakfasts were delicious, the bed was comfortable--totally recommended for a relaxing trip to salida.

This is a great place to stay when traveling through Colorado. We enjoyed our breakfast, nice room and animal friends out back. It is located in an area with views all directions. The large open living room with valuted ceiling and fireplace is a great gathering space.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to be very nice.
