Ideal B&B

5 on May 19, 2018

When we travel we always try to stay in B&B’s instead of hotels. We have visited many B&B’s over the years, most good, some not so good. Antlers on the Creek is as close to a perfect B&B as you could want. Susan and her staff made sure our stay was enjoyable. Breakfast was wonderful and in the afternoon there are snacks and happy hour (great margaritas). The Inn is located in a quiet valley with beautiful grounds just a few minutes from Durango. We did the Durango Silverton train trip and they packed a delicious breakfast with yogurt, fruit, granola, water, and a breakfast sandwich on homemade English muffins. They also gave us a sack with cookies and water to take with us on the day we left. If you need a place to stay in the Durango area you will not do better than Antlers on the Creek


A slice of paradise

4.4 on April 26, 2018

I had the pleasure of staying at this B&B for the first time and will definitely be back! The grounds, food and staff were exceptional and really willing to go the extra mile to make their guests happy. I would have given the room 5 stars but there were no dressers for clothes storage; the area that had a refrigerator was so noisy that I had to unplug it at night so I could go to sleep. The TV was positioned in such a way, that if you got up at night it would be possible to hit your head if you didn't remember it was there.. These are minor and could easily be remedied... Overall, it was a beautiful oasis in the outskirts of Durango!


Fantastic experience!

We stayed for two nights on our "babymoon" and it was such a wonderful, relaxing experience. The room was charming, yet modern and perfectly clean. All of the staff were friendly and went out of their way for our comfort (even asking me which flavor of cookies I would enjoy them baking that day). The best part was the 3 course breakfast each morning. The food was delicious and was by far the best food we ate during our whole stay in Durango. They had no problem accommodating my husband's dairy intolerance. My favorite breakfast was the baked pear stuffed with goat cheese and fig, followed by yogurt, fresh fruit, and scrumptious homemade granola, and then almond crusted French toast and sausage. We ate so well we weren't hungry for lunch that day. We are already planning a return trip with the baby once she arrives.


Absolutely lovely!

I thought I shared this review a while ago, but I don't see it. I definitely want to sing the praises of Antlers on the Creeks, so here we go! We stayed at Antlers for a few days in mid-October and I can't say enough about how incredible and lovely the stay was. The rooms are perfectly appointed and the staff - I hesitate to call them that since they were really more like friends - was incredibly friendly and helpful! Susan answers your questions before they are even asked and anticipates your needs in a manner that feels very welcoming. My new husband and I were married on this trip, and Susan and team were absolutely fantastic! She answered every question I had and followed up with additional questions to make sure everything was exactly as I would want it to be. From the setting to the flowers to the meal to the cake - everything was perfect! We're already planning our first anniversary visit! I can't say enough about Antler or the wonderful people who work so hard to make is to spectacular. What I can say is go there and go now! You won't regret it!

Outstanding, in every way

5 on November 17, 2017

Full marks not given lightly, but when each of the criteria above met or exceeded our expectations...then wow! So good in fact, we have ordered the sheets we slept on, ordered the pillows we were introduced to, bought the cookbook many of the fantastic recipes came from at the wonderful breakfasts and thoroughly enjoyed meeting each member of the staff! Location is only slightly off the beaten track, but that makes it perfect for get ways, weddings, or just plain quiet retreats from long road trips. A rare and memorable find.


Fabulous

5 on October 20, 2017

My Husband and I just stayed there for 4 days while we eloped at this beautiful bed and breakfast. Everything was AWESOME! We were a little worried about our stay since we had never gone to a bed and breakfast. It ended up being our BEST vacation ever and now when traveling we prefer a b&b!! There was tons of beautiful touches that made us feel like royalty ! The bottomless cookie jar was an awesome midnight treat for us after getting back from our fun adventures! Our wedding day was awesome too! We had in room couples massage! Susan and all her staff was so nice and accommodating. We want to come back every other year and stay at antlers on the creek, because we had such an awesome time!!!


Kudo's to Susan and the gang

If you want a place that is elegant but homey. A wonderful staff lead by "The Hostess with the Mostess" Susan then please check out the Antlers. The setting is perfect. The place is immaculate and the food well it just keeps coming. Susan says no one leaves the Antler's hungry and I really can't imagine leaving hungry with the wonderful endless cookie jars, the great happy hour and the over the top breakfast. Keep up the good work. I promise you will see us in the spring


Weekend getaway

We just spent 3 days at the Inn. Susan and her staff are absolutely delightful. The Inn is beautiful, well kept and so relaxing. The amenities are spot on top notch. The grounds are awesome, the food is great. The daily homemade cookies a real treat. it is evident that Susan puts her heart and soul into the Inn as well as every guest. Thank you for a wonderful stay, you are now on our annual trip stop. Jennifer and Joe.
