Great place if you're a dog lover....if not it might not be the place for you. Family dog has her spot on the sofa and all furniture is well loved by animals. We didn't travel with our pet on this trip. It is located on a farm so expectations for cleanliness should be adjusted accordingly. Food was awesome!
Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience with us at Mountain Goat Lodge! While we do cater to animal lovers, we certainly don't want any guest to feel that our cleanliness is effected by our dog or other visiting animals. We take pride in maintaining a clean home and property but we value your feedback and strive to provide the best experience possible for each guest. So glad to hear you loved the food and we welcome you back any time!

We had a fantastic weekend at Mountain Goat Lodge. We spend time walking the fields, playing with and feeding baby goats, and dining at Fritz in Salida (yum!) My boyfriend and I took the cheesemaking class and Mountain Goat and it was fantastic!!! I highly recommend it. Our fridge is loaded with homemade cheeses and even yogurt now. The gourmet breakfasts were delicious, and the hosts were generous, friendly and fun. I highly recommend Mountain Goat Lodge. If you get

We had a wonderful time at the Mountain Goat Lodge. First and foremost, we stayed for two nights and the breakfast served each day was absolutely outstanding! Gina does a wonderful job making sure you leave for the day well fed. The only complaint we had (which is minor) is that it is hard to sleep past 7am...a lot of noise starts happening downstairs and the walls are pretty thin. We would definitely stay here again...it was just lovely and worth every penny.
Thank you for being honest with the feedback - you had the mixed experience of being here when we were completely full - great for conversations and making new acquaintances, but not so great for sleeping in. Those that come here during the week make the comment of how quiet it is! We are planning some upgrades to insulated doors and drapes in hopes that we can dampen down some of the sound. Glad you had a good weekend though!

We highly recommend this place for a weekend (or longer) getaway. The surroundings are gorgeous, the rooms are very nice and the owners are very welcoming. The cheese making class was a lot of fun as well. And of course the goats are an added highlight. We were sad to leave.

Goat Cheese Quiche ala Esther
Gina makes Chevre (a fresh mild tasting cream cheese) daily, and this quiche uses our goat's cheese, goat's milk, and eggs from our free ranging hens, blended with either sun dried or fresh tomatoes & fresh herbs in a crisp baked pie crust. Yum!
