Loved the location, uniqueness and local flavor of Blue Lake Ranch. A pool would’ve been lovely as the lake is not really swimmable.

One of a kind away from Durango by about 20 mins. This place is quite, clean and has all the touches of home. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and no matter what time I was outside, I could hear so many birds singing. We truly appreciated the care that the owners put into this property.

Amazing stay! Went on a mini honeymoon and the staff was lovely. They have special envelopes with your name on it stating information you may need during your stay. Their office hours are from 9am-4pm and breakfast is served from 8am-9am and it’s delicious they have a variety of foods to choose from and it’s different everyday. Highly recommend this bed and breakfast!

4/10 Fair

It’s just as beautiful and picturesque as the pictures. However, we had three main issues with our stay. When we arrived it had been cleaned just not very well. The upstairs carpet is stained and old and didn’t have vacuum lines. I’m a former house cleaner so I can tell when a room has been vacuumed. Everything was pretty dusty and there was hair and dust on the ground. Basically you can tell the sheets were clean and the toilets it just needed a deep clean. The food was edible but not great. The biggest issue we had was that we stayed in the Mountain View room which is connected by one door to another room (the piñon room I believe) and we could hear literally everything going on in that apartment. To the degree that one morning they must have been talking in front of the door and we thought someone was in our unit because the sound carried it straight to our bedroom. Overall it’s just alright. For paying $1k total we probably won’t be going back. We realized one of our favorite hotels would have ended up being cheaper/cleaner/better food. So guess it depends what you’re looking for!

Decent place.
nice spot , cozy room but fragrant sheets gave me a head ache. They also had a weird feeling .. polyester maybe? Towels were cheesy too. Breakfast was great and people were very nice.
