About 8 miles from downtown Durango, this little B&B sits on five acres in the lush Animas Valley, with an apple orchard, flower gardens, and trout ponds on the grounds. Cherrywood antiques, fluffy feather beds, and handcrafted armoires add a graceful touch to the handsome rooms. In the evening, relax on your cottage swing and enjoy views of the surrounding cliffs. Breakfasts are superb; all baked goods and jams are homemade, as are the cookies that are available all
day. And for an extra $12, the owner will make you a bagged lunch to take on your day's excursion.
