I couldn't agree more with the previous reviews. Both Andrew and Jorden were absolutely amazing hosts and operators of this little gem of a B&B. I showed up late after a 17hour drive and Andrew was not only nice enough to meet me there but also gave me his last Coors light. I owe you one! The building itself was straight out of the wild west and still maintained that charm. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable albeit small but in no way lacking in comfort and the prices were ridiculously affordable. There are 3 large sitting areas and a full kitchen to use at any time. If you're looking for a cheap room with cable and a tv (you know who you are) then I'm sure there's a soulless Motel 6 in Telluride or Cortez. However, if you want a super cozy room in a really cool little town then this is it. And as an added bonus there's the complimentary breakfast. Fresh homemade frittata, coffee, fresh fruit, homemade granola.... Can't say enough.

The host, Andrew, was phenomenal! Very kind and knowledgeable. The room was clean, well kept and cozy. The breakfast was mouthwatering! Home made food, rolls and fresh fruit! Coffee was superb. The other guests were fun. All around great experience! 10/10 would come again!
