We found this place looking for inexpensive options for an overnight trip to Telluride. If you want to save a couple hundred dollars on lodging for one night the wife and I would highly recommend the Mineshaft Inn in Rico, CO. It's maybe a 30-minute trip on into telluride and you get to see lizardhead pass! In fact I think my wife liked this place and Rico better than any place in Telluride. This bed and breakfast is a beautiful home with three wonderful rooms. The staff were very kind and attentive. The rooms are clean and very well decorated. Our room had a nice sized bathroom with a shower tub. The common room is a great place to do a little bit of reading in the evening. And the breakfast was pretty good too!

It is my favorite B&B in Co. I loved the bath tub. I haven’t been in a tub in 18 yrs. ( I’m 85, so this was special. )Jordan, the owner, is a delightful hostess. She grew up in Rico. Her dad is fabulous cook & her boyfriend, a charming waiter. Dinner was out of the out of this world. Breakfast, too. The beds are soft as a cloud. I love everything about it. ( Don’t tell anyone because Telluride is over run & way over rated & I don’t want tourist to ruin iRico. Hope Almy Hamilton )

The place is beautiful, the location is awesome, and the breakfast is tasty. The absolute best part of staying here though is the customer service! We could not have asked for a better stay.
