I have struggled with writing this review. To begin with I need a few more stars to work with... In addition the care and help I received from Mark and Judy is beyond what any guest should arrive expecting. My husband and i were in the middle of a three month bike-camping trip when I had some medical issues. Mark and Judy went way beyond what could be expected of a Bed and Breakfast hosts can be expected to do. Without giving the details they showed what wonderful and gracious people they are. Whatever your reason for stopping at the Apple Lodge you can be sure you will get a warm welcome. The lodge itself was charming and comfortable. So much nicer than staying at a chain hotel and the breakfasts were delicious. A note to any Divide riders that might be reading this: If you can spare the extra bucks this is a good night not to unpack your tent. A comfortable night or two at the Apple Lodge is a perfect precursor to climbing Indiana pass. Thank you so much, Mark and Judy for a restful stay, We crossed the Mexican border a little later than expected with much gratitude to the kind people we met along the way and you are at the top of that list!
Thanks so much for the kind words. We really enjoyed getting to visit with you. So glad you made it to the end of your trip. Hope to see you again someday.

We stayed at AppleLodge B&B in early August. The room was clean quite and our hosts, Mark and Judy, were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good and they were able to meet our need for gluten-free with no problems. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for relaxed, comfortable accommodations.

We travel around to different B & B's as our "staycation" always booking through bed and breakfast.com. We felt like we were at Grandma's house. Clean and very wonderful hospitality. The breakfast was delicious. Definitely worth the travel.
Thank you for your kind review. We hope you will come stay with us again soon. God bless!

Convenient location for skiing Wolf Creek. Hosts were very attentive and gave great recommendations for outside dining options and general info on the area. I would recommend this spot to friends.

My boyfriend and I very much enjoyed staying here on a short ski trip over NY 2015. (Apple Lodge is 45 min from Wolf Creek and 5 hours from Boulder.)The owners, Mark and Judy, are very personable, helpful and friendly but not overbearing. They will chat if you are so inclined, but they will also let you relax in silence if that's what you wish. They have a very cute little dog, Hazel, who is friendly, playful and well-behaved. Mark and Judy made sure we had clear directions and they made good restaurant recommendations too. (Try Three Barrels Brewery and Pizzeria in Del Norte). The common area "fireplace room" is a wonderful place to relax on the couch or in the recliner to enjoy some homemade cookies and tea or coffee while you read. Christmas music played softly in the background and added to the warm, holiday ambiance. Breakfasts were hearty and delicious and the owners readily accommodated my vegetarian diet. Try this place for you next trip to Wolf Creek - it's much more quiet, comfortable and homey than any hotel could be and is worth a few extra dollars!

We had to change plans for ou roadtrip and picked this place after a quick internet-research very short trem. We staid only one night, and were very pleasantly surprised about the very warm welcome, the free upgrade to a larger room and how impeccable the prperty is maintained; you clearly see how invested and commited the owners are. Breakfast was delicious ad we regretted that we had to leave the other day.

Very comfortable and homey. The attendants were so warm and gracious and willing to help us feel welcome. The breakfasts were yummy, hot and very attractively served. Would stay again if in the area.

Innkeepers were amazing. Called me on my cell to make sure I would be in an area that I could get some supper since I was checking in late. Very Concerned and caring
