At the Apple Orchard Inn, enjoy the best of both worlds -- the peace and quiet of the country and the convenience of being close to town and the mountains. The inn is a large farmhouse-style home and six quaint cottages located on five acres with award-winning landscaping, an old apple orchard, ponds and streams, flower gardens, and a patio and hot tub where you can enjoy mountain views in all directions. Watch the Durango & Silverton Train pass by, bird-watch, and enjoy the gardens while Celeste prepares a full hearty breakfast for you, complete with home-baked breads and pastries. Make the Apple Orchard Inn your home away from home!

Picturesque, hospitable and peaceful - Kathi was great and the breakfast she prepared was the best we had on our trip. I think she made a special effort to accommodate our dietary needs which was greatly appreciated. Only tiny gripe was the location - could be a touch cheaper considering that? It's a bit of a way out so taxis are needed for anything in Durango proper. Loved our stay though, really did.

I had mistakenly booked for a week after I needed a room and didn't realize it until the night before. The owner was helpful in accommodating us on short notice, even though I had to end up springing for the extra-romantic honeymoon suite. Needless to say, we weren't too disappointed in that. The site is breathtaking and the breakfast stupendous and generously gravy-covered. If I am in the area again it will be high on my last for nights and events. It was also my SO's first B&B and he was not disappointed.

We highly enjoyed our stay at the Apple Orchard Inn. We reserved our room only a week before, and upon arriving were upgraded to stay in the Prairie Spy Cottage. We stayed for two nights, and both breakfasts made by Kathy were outstanding--freshly squeezed juice, made-to-order entrees, fruit, pastries--everything you can imagine! A great location for exploring Durango and all of its surrounding areas.

The Apple Orchard Inn was our first B&B experience and man it was amazing! The breakfast was phenomenal, the cottage we stayed in was romantic, and the surroundings breathtaking. We will definitely be going back! Thank you Kathy for an amazing experience!

Loved everything about this B&B, including the owner Kathi. Our stay couldn't have been any more enjoyable thanks to her. The cabins are so cozy and warm, with radiant floor heating. The grounds and cabins are layed out perfectly so as to make it feel as if you are the only ones there!

Friendly service you'd expect from Colorado country folk. Breakfast was fantastic and the atmosphere was great. The Red Baron is a private, cute and cozy little retreat. Thank you for a lovely experience.

Enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing evening, slept comfortably in cottage with view of the stars. Had a great breakfast. We will be back to visit in the future! My wife and I fell in love with the property!

Sitting outside in our own private hot tub looking at the stars was not only relaxing but very romantic! The room was perfect and had heated floors that my wife wants in our next home. We had breakfast burritos the were out of this world and were topped off with a green chili sauce that slapped your taste buds and said wake up! This place will always be at the top of our list.

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
This has become a "Signature Dish" because returning guests always go to the ever-present cookie jar looking for them. Baked daily, these Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies aren't your run-of-the-mill cookies! They are filled with three kinds of chocolate, plus walnuts and pecans. Not exactly exciting, but they are baked at about 4 p.m. daily. When eaten straight out of the oven, it's heaven!
