The AppleLodge is a chalet style home on 2 1/2 acres just West of Del Norte, Colorado. It is located on scenic highway 160 in the San Luis Valley between Alamosa and Pagosa Springs. Nestled in the foothills it enjoys views of the San Juan Mountains to the South and west, the La Garita Mountains to the North, and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the East. The AppleLodge opened for business in the Fall of 2003 and has three bedrooms for rent in the B&B. Private baths, great views, spacious common areas, and delicious breakfasts are just a few of the many ammenities. There is also a separate lodge with a kitchen and bunkrooms for families/groups called the Bushel House. The Bushel House includes a movie/game/conference room for your group to gather together in. The AppleLodge is situated in a prime location to enjoy Southern Colorado at its best. Skiing at Wolf Creek Ski Area, hiking in miles of National Forrest, and some of Colorado's best hunting and fishing are just some of the many activities that abound. Whether your's is a long or short stay at the AppleLodge, it is always good medicine for the soul.

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

Husband and I found Applelodge B and B while googling for lodging between Montrose and Colorado Springs. We stayed in the "Red Delicious" room, which has a private bath and king size bed. I slept wonderfully but my husband thought the bed was a little soft. The room and bath were very clean, homey, comfortable and convenient for our travels through central and western Colorado. We would definitely return and spend another night with the Applewhites and their quaint Band B. Sat on the front porch Saturday morning drank our coffee and watched the herd of buffalo and their babies across the highway.

I highly recommend this B&B. The Applewhites are absolutely wonderful people who aim to please. I will go back ASAP, and will stay again at this B&B without bothering to look elsewhere. Alan in Waco Texas
Thanks for your kind words. We really enjoyed getting to know you and your family. We hope to be able to visit again real soon. God bless you and yours, Mark and Judy

Then turn right (west) on U.S. Highway 160 and it's just west of town on the right. From Santa Fe, New Mexico and parts south-- take U.S. Highway 285 North to Alamosa and turn left (west) onto U.S. Highway 160 and go through Alamosa and through Monte Vista to Del Norte.
