Fodor's Review

Saved from inundation in 1954 when the Canyon Ferry Reservoir was created, this former cattle baron's home was relocated to a premier perch above the lake. Antiques accent the frilly modern furnishings and lovingly restored woodwork throughout the B&B. In addition to several private rooms, there's a dorm-style bunkhouse that sleeps seven, as well as a "honeymoon cabin" with Jacuzzi. Outdoorsy types come here for summer water sports, winter ice boating, and year-round

fishing; impatient lovers come for no-wait eloping at the on-site chapel.
