I stayed in the San Isabel room during my stay at the Lamp Post Lodge. The bedding was amazing and the room was spotless. One of my favorite amenities were the soaps and shampoos provided in my bathroom - I loved the scent and the large, reusable bottles! Breakfast was also very tasty - biscuits with sausage gravy and fresh fruit - and I loved waking up to the mountain view. I can't wait to go back.

Dick & Barb Jones
Dick and Barb Jones came to the Wet Mountain Valley at a time when a large segment of Highway 69 was still a dirt road, those who had a telephone were on an eight-party line, and the county school dismissed at noon in September so that many of the kids could work in the hay. Much has changed in the past 40 years, but for Dick and Barb, the valley is still home. It is here in the shadow of the majestic Sangre de Cristo mountains that they have made their life.
