A Highlight of our trip

5 on August 30, 2018

My husband and I are not B&B regulars, but after researching a place to stay in Durango a few nights, I kept going back to Antlers on the Creek...even though it was a short drive outside of town. What a great decision that was. It turned out to be a highlight of our getaway to Colorado. We arrived after hours, and were greeted by Julia who was expecting our late arrival. We let them know we would pick up dinner on our way, and Julia directed us to the lovely dining room where she had set a place for us to eat our dinner - complete with fresh flowers. The next morning we went downstairs to breakfast in the cheerful dining room - who knew we would have a 3 course gourmet breakfast each morning! Chef Curtis and his Assistant Chef Summer wowed us with their creativity and variety of amazing breakfast offerings.You may dine at a table for 2, or at a group table. It is very relaxed, and comfortable, with a lovely view of the pond and mountains. Each afternoon from 5:00 - 6:00 guests are treated to complimentary wine or beer along with more amazing chef prepared appetizers which vary each evening. It's a great time to get to know other guests, and share information on things to do in the area. Susan, the owner/innkeeper and her staff (Julia, Karen, Curtis, and Summer and one other who's name I missed) do an outstanding job making guests feel at home. Susan has thought of everything you might need to make your visit perfect, including luxurious bedding, and perfectly appointed rooms, and a warm, inviting, and beautifully decorated home. A lineup of blue chairs outside is a perfect place to relax and watch the birds and other wildlife. What more could they do to make you feel special? Julia presented us with a gift bag with cookies (best cookies ever - baked fresh each day!!) and bottled water to take on the rest of our trip. On a side note, most guests that were there with us were repeat guests - and I can't wait to be a repeat guest as soon as possible.


Wow! Fabulous Place to stay!

This is truly a gem of a place. We were simply delighted with every facet of our stay. The setting, the luxury accommodations, and the landscape are wonderful. The warmth and personality of Susan and her staff was exceptional, and the food was exquisite! We look forward to returning to this amazing B&B.


Love this place!

We just returned from our fifth, yes FIFTH stay at Antlers on the Creek. I can't say enough about this amazing Bed and Breakfast! Susan and her staff are the best. The only downside to staying here is that suddenly any other B&B will never compare.


Outstanding accommodations and dining

5 on August 21, 2018

Once you walk into Antlers you realize it’s something special. The decor and ambiance is very welcoming and brings a smile to your face. The attention to details was amazing. The rooms are well appointed and immaculate. I can’t say enough about Susan and her staff. Very friendly and eager to please! Let’s talk about the gourmet dining, 3 course breakfast to die for, congratulations to Susan for being so creative with menus, fresh fruits, eggs and veggies straight from her garden to our table! We will definitely spread the word about this amazing B&B and visit again soon! Thanks Susan, Jonni and James Hunter


Absolutely Perfect

5 on August 08, 2018

We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed Antlers on the Creek. Everything was perfect. First our room had everything we needed, it was clean and the sheets are amazing! Anything you need just ask! Susan and her staff are there to make sure you get everything you need. Our best meals were at Antlers, the three course breakfast was so good every day! Also, the happy hour was a nice touch! Apps and Drinks before dinner was so nice, it was also a good time to chat with other guests. Susan helped my fiancé set up a night that I will never forget. We had private dinner which was our favorite dinner of our trip at Antlers and she assisted him in setting up the perfect evening to propose. I can not wait to go back, I can't even describe our love for this place. It is unlike anywhere we have stayed before. We will be back soon!!


Wonderful Experience

5 on August 01, 2018

This is an amazing bed and breakfast. Everything about the experience was exceptional. The condition of the property, the staff, the 3 course breakfasts, the location to Durango, the peaceful setting at the mountain foothills, and the over the top attention to even the most minor details was unmatched. I would highly recommend Antlers on the Creek to anyone who is seeking a well positioned, peaceful vacation experience in the Durango, Colorado area. Thank you Susan for making this a wonderful getaway for me and my wife. We will return.


Fabulous experience

We loved staying here. The service and the decor were wonderful. Can't wait to come back!


A real treat!!

5 on July 10, 2018

We stayed for 3 nights at this wonderful little B&B just outside of Durango. The setting, rooms, dining room, and grounds could not have been more pleasant. Susan, and her outstanding crew, were just terrific and were attentive and thoughtful in everything they did and offered. However, it was their breakfasts that really set a high bar. Each morning was met with a different twist of a traditional breakfast, and beautifully presented. Most days we just skipped lunch even though we told Susan to just give each of us a "half" portion. All in all, an experience that we will cherish. Hope to make it back one of these days.......


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!
