The room was delightful. Spotless, bed was comfortable, hosts were very friendly (even took the snow off of our car), hot breakfast was delicious. Very comfortable and gorgeous common areas.

The Arbor House is very charming and warm! Keith and Laurie are sweet and very accommodating , they made sure we were well taken care of. The home was decorated like it was staged for a magazine, except you felt like you were home and comfortable. Laurie makes 5 star breakfasts. She takes great care in the smaller things, like how the plate is decorated with a pansy placed on top of fresh gathered herbs and fruit placed perfectly.....she is a great decorator. The room was beautiful and very comfortable with everything you would need and more. We can't wait to go back and get pampered again.

My husband and I have stayed at the Arbor House Inn three times during the winter and the summer. We make a point to plan trips to South Fork from Denver just to stay at this cozy B&B that feels like home. Laurie and Keith make the stay outstanding with their warmth and generosity. Laurie does an awesome job with breakfast; always delicious. During the winter the inn is so cozy and warm with the big fireplace in the great room it's a nice retreat from busy lives in Denver. Summer time it's so relaxing to sit outside and listen to the sound of the river while enjoy a drink and within 5 minutes of stepping into the water with his fly fishing gear my husband was having fun catching some small trout. We recommend the Inn to anyone who is looking for fantastic lodging and food in South Fork!

My husband and I got married at the Arbor House Inn and the entire weekend was amazing! Laure and Keith felt like part of the family and they treated us like we were part of theirs too! The Inn and the grounds are beautiful, the rooms are clean, the food is amazing, and the service is outstanding! We could not have asked for a better experience!

My room was spacious and comfortable - breakfast superb, wonderfully delicious. The house is beautifully furnished and the owner/hosts are gracious and helpful. A truly delightful place to stay.

Keith & Laurie are great innkeepers. The breakfasts are always wonderful and the focus on the surroundings and rooms are perfect. I would recommend them to all!

An amazing trip to an amazing inn. We will return for our third visit!

No words can possibly describe this B&B - online pics look great, but when you arrive and see it in person it truly takes your breath away. If the quality of the rooms, scenery, or the hospitality doesn't reel you in, the breakfasts will. Everything at the Arbor House Inn is high quality, and Laurie and Keith (Innkeeper/Owners) go out of their way to ensure your stay is enjoyable and memorable. The South Fork of the Rio Grande is just feet from the rooms, and the flowers on the premises are gorgeous. If you stay at Arbor House Inn, plan to set aside time to stay on-site and enjoy a little bit of heaven in Colorado. Can't even begin to describe the aesthetic experience!

Everything about the Arbor House Inn was perfection -- our hosts; their lovely decor, oh so comfortable. The outdoor area, neat & beautiful groomed and natural areas. The breakfast, a gourmet delight!
5 on August 06, 2012
Our stay with Laurie & Keith was fantastic. The scenery, the property, and the sound of the river was very relaxing and gave us an opportunity to recharge our batteries. They both were very gracious hosts who bent over backwards to make our stay an experience to remember. The accommodations far exceeded our expectations of a bed and breakfast. Laurie made the most wonderful breakfasts and always had the coffee ready. Keith would always mingle with the guests to share stories and learn a little about each one of us. We plan on returning next year around the same time frame. Again thanks for the stay.

Keith and Laurie did such a great job renovating this property! We thoroughly enjoyed spending New Years in their B&B....their attention to detail, mouth watering breakfast, gorgeously decorated property, and amenities. We will definately be going back...maybe summer this time. They are full of information and as genuinely nice as possible. Thank you Keith and Laurie. We'll be back. -Relaxed skiers from Colorado Springs

The reservation process was very easy, as was check-in. Laurie and Keith were very concerned about our comfort in every way. We stayed in the "Fisherman's Folly" room. It was expertly decorated and whimsical. The bed was clean and comfortable, and the room was smoke-free. The bathroom was spotless, and although it contained only a shower, there was a shampoo/soap dispenser in it. The linens were plush, and there were also robes for our use in the closet. Our room had a coffee maker and a selection of teas, as well as complimentary bottled water and juices. There is a covered hot tub on the patio, along with several tables covered by umbrellas. They have a sprawling back lawn which is bordered by a wide creek, with several trees shading private benches and tables. There is also a hand-made gazebo on the banks of the creek that is lit with white Christmas-style lights at night. One side of the yard has horse-shoe pits. On the far corner of the property from the inn along the creek is an area called "Camp Calvin". The camp contains a fire pit, picnic table, several lawn chairs and a food prep table. Breakfast was delicious...poached eggs benedict with bacon, fresh melon and strawberries and home made sweet potato bread, along with a variety of juices and coffee or tea. Aside from fishing and hiking, South Fork is located at the foot of Wolf Creek Pass. In the summer, Arbor House encourages fishing along the 400 yards (or so) of creek along their yard, asking that catch-and-release be practiced. We will be returning to Arbor House, but next time it will be our destination for a long weekend, and not an overnight stop. It may cost slightly more than the strip motel down the street, but it is in another dimension as far as beauty, comfort, activity and hospitality are concerned. Do not pass up the opportunity to enjoy everything Arbor House has to offer for a comfortable, romantic weekend.

A beautiful location with a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. The breakfast and presentation were superior! Thoroughly enjoyed everything about the Arbor House In B&B.
5 on June 01, 2011
I was completely thrilled by our stay here. We will most certainly visit again. Laurie & Keith are incredible hosts, and have decorated their B&B with impeccable taste! The breakfasts served match that of a 5 star restaurant. Thank you both for taking such good care of us! Mike & Melissa

My husband and I got married at the Arbor House Inn, the experience was unbeatable. Keith and Laurie had every single detail covered down to the garnish on our plates. They made us feel like family and called us by name, I couldn't ask for a more perfect wedding and honeymoon. I will forever be grateful that they went above and beyond for our special day. Thank you Keith and Laurie, The Wilson's Atoka, Oklahoma

I have no idea why anyone would stay in Pagosa Springs. We have found our new getaway in South Fork. Not only was this an excellent location, the Inn was outstanding. The room was beautiful, the breakfast delicious, the setting divine, the hosts unbelievable. Keith and Laurie out do themselves in both service and welcoming people into the home. Our room was stylish, the bed extremely comfortable, and most importantly overall affordable. The breakfast was beyond filling, well prepared and ellegantly served. We jumped into the hottub on the deck while it was 15 degrees out and had a great time relaxing staring at the moon. We finished the puzzle in the living room and sat on the comfy couches next to the woodburning stove and read our books. By far, South Fork is the side of the pass to stay on to ski Wolf Creek. While the town isn't tourist centric in the winter, there was several places to eat and lots of long drives to be had. We look forward to getting away from the Texas heat this summer and sitting by the river and finish yet another book!

We loved it! Everything about it! Need I say more?

Fantastic in all respects. I would like to sell my house and "move" to the Arbor House. I'd gladly feed Jessie and the two Dachsies. You will not be disappointed.
5 on June 13, 2010
What a great place to get away from it all! It has a wonderful location on the river with views of the cliffs and mountains. We especially enjoyed listening to the soothing sounds of the river from our room at night. From the beautiful decor to the delicious breakfast we found it hard to leave so we stayed an extra night. Laurie and Keith are great hosts too, we will be back!

My Girlfriend and I stayed there for a weekend, and the property really exceeded all expectations we had. rooms are really private, with a home-feeling to them. The hosts are really nice, provide you with any level of privacy you may need, and full of helpful advice about the area.
5 on March 09, 2010
I didn't want to leave! It's the little details that make the Arbor House stand out from every other B&B I've stayed at. The wonderful food, the atmosphere, the dogs...all worth coming back for!

I have never had such a great weekend away! The best breakfast I have ever had! The room was beautiful and the location was spectaular. We will come back every year!

It's hard to pick just a few good things. This B & B was perfect and the hosts, Keith and Laurie, are wonderful people.

I highly recommend this B&B!

After disappointing stays at B&B's, we decided to try again after Arbor House was recommended to us. Our stay there was outstanding in every way! The setting is beautiful with both the inn and surrounding yard immaculately maintained. Our room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent as was our visit with the owners and other guests. We will return and recommend Arbor House to family and friends.

Would recommend this B&B to anyone! Warm, welcoming, peaceful, and so comfortable!

This is our third time and we can't wait to return! Beautifully decorated house and rooms, river running by back yard and great hosts. Breakfasts are delicious, but a bit too fattening for us, so we often leave half eaten plates.

Our every need was anticipated and satisfied. It was a great stay! :)

We bought their Just the Two of Us elopement package and were thoroughly impressed! Not only were the accommodations beautiful and comfortable, but the hosts, their cute little dogs and the food was fantastic! The little details were way above and beyond our expectations. Keith and Laurie, you and your Inn are awesome and we plan to return again and again! Thank you so much for making our special day even more special than we thought it would be. :-)
5 on April 13, 2009
From the moment we arrived, we knew we had chosen the perfect getaway. Laurie and Keith are the most hospitable couple we have met, and the Inn is unparalleled in beauty and comfort. And the breakfast? You'll have to taste it to believe it. We couldn't have asked for anything else!

Just the Two of Us Elopement, 11/22/2008 The Brattons truly made all of our hopes and dreams for our wedding day come true, and they added to the memories tenfold with so many extras, above-and-beyonds, and touching surprises. We will always treasure in our heart our time there and the innkeepers who made it so remarkably special and beautiful. They truly take care of every detail, whether or not you thought of it, and you can tell they really love what they do.

Waking up in the crisp mountain air to a babbling brook in the backyard with hummingbirds on the balcony to our bedroom describes our experience at this sanctuary in the Rockies. Laurie, the cook, prepared a very gourmet breakfast. She has portrayed fince decorating talents in this most comfortable inn.

Most Amazing Place! Will Return Many More Times !

Outstanding. Friendly, can't say enough good things. Can't wait to go back.

This B & B far exceeded our expectations providing us the most refreshing time away from the city. If anyone is looking to be pampered, relax, and enjoy some down time, this is the place to do it. The hosts were fabulous, the rooms ultra-comfy and decorated with such class and taste...there were many details they thought of that no other place we've ever stayed provided. They are number one on our return to list...the food was out of this world too...simply terrific!
4.8 on July 21, 2008
Absolute perfect getaway from the city. Nestled on the River, this was a very relaxing stay with only 5 rooms, outdoor hot tub and fire pit & gazebo overlooking the river. Outstanding gourmet breakfast in the morning!

What a wonderful way to begin our lives together. This is a beautiful Inn in a perfect setting, outstanding rooms, food and innkeepers! We wanted a nice ceremony that was simple, no details to worry about, but what we received was more then we ever dreamed! Laurie and Keith made us feel like the most important people in the world and gave us a perfect day we will always treasure.

Beautiful, relaxing, cozy B&B. Keith and Laurie helped make our wedding day FABULOUS! The rooms are very spacious and nicely decorated, very comfortable beds. The surrounding scenary (Rio Grand River and mountains) are breath taking. Breakfast each day was unforgettable. Wedding cake was delicious. We will be back every year to celebrate our anniversary and any other occasion we can. Thanks for the memories.

The Arbor House Inn is a beautiful spot in paradise in South Fork, Co. where the Rocky Mountains and the Rio Grande River come together in perfect harmony.
5 on June 02, 2008
We had a small, intimate wedding with ten (10) other guests. Everything was perfection - Laurie and Keith had taken care of everything. The wedding was in the morning under the outdoor arbor with the river rushing just behind. A beautiful setting for the wedding and the reception food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. It was relaxed, personal and special. Everyone agreed that we would all have to return to this beautiful site.
