bed and breakfast
I’ve stayed at four out of five of these inns, and I toured the other one, so you can be assured that there is an authentic voice behind this post. These Colorado inns are all quite varied in price and ambiance, but they are each one-of-a-kind.
The Distillery Inn at Marble Distilling Co. – Carbondale
The Distillery Inn is the most luxurious property on this list. I had the great pleasure of staying there last month. When I say it’s “unique,” I’m not exaggerating – it’s the only distillery inn in the world.
The five rooms, located above the distillery, are top-notch. The ambiance of the entire place is laid back, yet elegant. My favorite detail of my room, the Ginger, were the daffodils in the bathroom and tulips in the main room.
This gorgeous inn is also dog-friendly (even big dogs), has free bikes for guests to use, and the mini-bar in each room features Marble Distilling Co. spirits complete with martini making supplies that include olives.
At The Distillery Inn, they’ve thought of every little thing to make your stay extra sweet.
Room rates range from around $250 to $350. Watch the inn’s Facebook page for specials.
The Living Farm Inn – Paonia
Paonia, located in the North Fork Valley, is one of my favorite places on the face-of-the-earth, and The Living Farm, is one of my favorite spots in Paonia. The inn is above their downtown restaurant, The Living Farm Cafe. Continue reading
I pride myself on finding out of the ordinary destinations. And I don’t just find them online, I visit them. This is the only way to know for sure if a place is worth writing about and worth sending you to.
The following Colorado destinations are three out of the ordinary winter escapes worth checking out.
Carr Manor, Cripple Creek
I toured this large bed and breakfast while in Cripple Creek a few winters ago. I love unusual repurposing projects and this is definitely a unique one. Carr Manor is an 120-year-old school building that’s been renovated into a bed and breakfast. Continue reading
Finding a place to stay in Delta County is really fun because there’s such a variety of accommodations in this area of Western Colorado. From farms to bed and breakfasts and everything in between, the only thing you’ll be hard pressed to find is a chain hotel.
Whether you’re heading over for a festival or just to explore, here are some of the interesting places that we’ve stayed during our trips to Delta County.
Bross Hotel Bed & Breakfast, Paonia, Colorado
We stayed at Bross Hotel in downtown Paonia on our most recent trip to Delta County’s North Fork Valley. This hotel is unique because it was a purpose built hotel and has remained a hotel for 110 years.
The Victorian rooms are cozy and will leave you with the feeling that you’ve traveled back to 1916, except that I expect the plumbing is much better today.
Each room at Bross comes with a delicious homemade breakfast, and don’t miss out on sipping your coffee on the expansive front balcony overlooking Onarga Avenue. I felt a bit like the Colorado version of Scarlett O’Hara on that balcony. As a bonus, Revolution Brewing is just around the corner from Bross Hotel.
Gunnison River Farms, Orchard City, Colorado Continue reading
