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.

We carefully went indoors and began snapping photos and watching these lazy moose. They stuck around for awhile, eventually making their way to the back (street side) of the house where the munched on anything they could find.
Seeing these moose made an amazing stay at Angler’s Cabin even more memorable. Continue reading
