We loved all of the organic fgood!

4.8 on September 27, 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at the Living Farm Inn in Paonia. It just opened in July, so we only found out about it word-of-mouth. The rooms were newly remodeled and very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the food was outstanding. We were so excited to experience a dinner and then breakfast of all organic foods and meats. I wish we had such a place to eat in at home. If you have specific needs in your room, you should ask as each room it set up slightly different. The Wi-Fi worked perfect, but our room did not have a table for my laptop. My sister's room had a table, but no closet. (Really no big deal!) p.s. The autumn drive over McClure past was outstanding! p.s.s AT&T cell phone service works great in Paonia, but Verizon does not. We had to go to the cemetary above town to make some phone calls -- the view was terrific!
