We stayed there for the Jan 11, 2020 Rico Winter Festival to ride Fat Bikes. The Rico Mine Shaft was excellent, but better yet was the hosts and their customer service. They accommodated our nutrition needs for breakfast, had the fires going, and were very friendly. The community kitchen area was awesome and we could cook our own meals, even watch a little football playoffs for a few minutes. Very comfortable rooms and bathrooms, very clean. Great location to access all other in town services. Very highly recommended!!! Coby and Tracy

A quiet and quaint place to rest your head. They go the extra mile for comfort's sake. Worth the quick drive from Telluride!

I was taking my time returning to Denver from a training and found this great B&B on Hot Wire. I'm so grateful to have found this gem! There's so much beauty and detail in this Inn. A reminder of a time when elegance and quality were valued. My bed was cozy, quiet, and incredibly comfortable. Breakfast was perfect and I wish I was able to stay longer. Will look for a time when I can bring my kids back to stay in the room with bunk beds!!
