Nestled among ponderosa pines and scrub oaks, on four wooded acres overlooking the Animas River Valley, Country Sunshine is your unforgettable secluded getaway. Conveniently located twelve minutes North of downtown Durango, we are the closest Bed and Breakfast to Purgatory Ski Area at Durango Mountain Resort.

Walter and Jodi are true 24 hour hosts that fuss over each guest as if we are all treasured visiting members of their family! Endless home-made goodies, beverages, and personal service! Nothing is missing, Nothing is broken, Beds are great, plenty of hot water and water pressure..... We had to stay at another, more expensive B&B in Hermosa on our return trip through Durango because Country Sunshine was booked. This other place featured 2-hour hospitality and lacking amenities....Dreadful! We will only stay with Country Sunshine in the future or we'll just skip Durango! It's THAT GOOD!

We have been visiting Country Sunshine for about ten years now and it never disappoints! The hosts, Jodi and Walter, are so friendly and helpful and just plain excellent at making you feel at home yet without any of the chores you would have at home like cooking, cleaning, etc. LOL The house is wonderful. The rooms are wonderful. The grounds are... you guessed it... wonderful. One night when we were there last month, Walter built us a great fire out in the fire pit and we spent a lovely evening sitting around it with friends just like the good old camping days but with the luxuriousness (sp?) of a great B&B just up the hill. Breakfasts are terrific! And every evening Walter serves up a scrumptious desert just because he can. You will not find a better B&B anywhere! And I am NOT being paid for this review! :-D

Away from town and well named,Country Sunshine. We love hummingbirds and were surrounded by them as well as many other species of birds. The hosts were extremely pleasant. The whole experience was worth the price.

This place is the best. We stayed for 5 days the summer of 2013. Walter and Jodie are great hosts and make you feel so at home. The breakfasts and the desserts were outstanding! We loved it so much that we are going back for Christmas 2013. Felt like home!

This is our third stay and we feel like regulars, even tho we know of others that have stayed many more times. there is ample property to roam, hot tub is great as told by others staying here. Walters breakfasts are a delight and evening desserts are rich and sooooooo good. Our stay has been always in September, so we have near perfect weather on our stays. Hard to say anything better than those who have given Jodi and Walter such good reviews that are so deserved we feel. We will stay again on our next trip back to this beautiful country.

We stayed here due to close proximity to my daughter's residence prior tk her wedding, and for it's beautiful grounds and peaceful atmosphere. We had a very enjoyable stay, with excellent breakfast out on the deck by Walter, free wine and beer, hot tub, chocolate chip cookies and a dessert every evening. Jody and Walter are very hospitable, friendly, while respecting your privacy.

We stayed at the Country Sunshine B&B Inn only for one night. All was fine. Hospitality and cleanliness are very good. Wifi worked well. The B&B is a 10 minutes drive away from Durango. But a very lovely place in the middle of the countryside. Drinks (water, beer, wine) are offered for free. They have a very nice cat and dog. So cute. All in all we would highly recommend this house and would like to come again.

Outstanding in every way, Country Sunshine is the perfect place to enjoy mountain views, wonderful breakfasts and killer desserts, pleasant company, and comfortable, attractive rooms. The hosts make it all perfect for their guests - and the birdwatching from the deck is an added plus. Try them once, and you'll be anxious for your next visit with Jodi and Walter at Country Sunshine.

Walter & Jodi are exceptional hosts! Felt so welcomed as soon as we came thru the door! Even Anya the dog was so very sweet! Walter is such a talented cook! Made the most delicious desserts every night which was a very rare treat in a B&B. usually others only supply cookies. Here we were treated to a delicious chocolate torte! Plan to return! This place is awesome!

During our 10 day vacation we stayed at 7 places and this was, definitely, the best. The hummingbirds came right up to you and the food was superb.
