The property is beautiful. Lots of natural areas and we had a stunning view of mountains. The staff was very attentive and friendly but not on top of us.

This was our first time to stay at a B&B and it was an extraordinary experience. The room was gorgeous, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and the other guests seemed to be all enjoying their stay also. We felt very much at home at the Blue Lake Ranch. In fact, we did not want to leave even though our travel itinerary had us moving on to Colorado Springs. If we are ever near Durango again, we will make Blue Lake Ranch home for the duration of our visit. Kari & Greg

Well I must say this was one of the most enjoyable vacations I have ever had with the family! if you want peace and quite, outstanding views and unprecedented wildlife this is for you. the staff was very helpful, delightful and courteous well beyond what would be normal service. we also had my daughters wedding with them and they were amazing and helpful throughout the whole process as we were from out of state. Breakfast's were top notch and well beyond you typical "continental breakfast". My wife and I will be coming back ASAP. :)

Enjoyed our recent stay in the La Plata Vista room which was lovely with a nice view. Felt price was very reasonable in comparison to some of the other places we have stayed. Location is very peaceful although you need to drive a bit to get to restaurants and shopping. Breakfasts were very good and very ample. Staff was nice but our only frustration was that they alternate days and communication was a bit lacking. We requested a box lunch from a staff member for the next day. She was not working the next day and did not communicate to who was working the next day. Would have been nice to have had cookies or snacks available in the evening, however I am not complaining as the price we paid for the room was very reasonable. TV reception was lacking (probably due to mountains but radio was good) They do have DVD. I wish we had brought our own DVDs as their collection was not very broad. But I highly recommend this place to stay and we would definitely return again.

We stayed a week—four adults ages 42 to 72. Because we booked late, each couple stayed in two different rooms during our visit. All four rooms were pleasant, private and beautifully decorated in Southwestern style. The landscape is a high desert mix of sagebrush, pinon trees, and shrubby dry-land flowers, but there are also many big areas of cultivated flowers, including hundreds of hollyhocks attracting hummingbirds. We spent two gloriously relaxing days at the ranch just reading, looking at the flowers, talking in the many quiet shady areas, and eating delicious box lunches provided by the staff. The breakfast each morning was a delight—homemade granola and yogurt, fresh fruit, dried fruit, and nuts. There was also a cooked breakfast that varied daily—bacon, scrambled eggs or poached eggs with basil, ham cooked with potatoes and corn, tamale pie, etc. There were many beautiful places to sit—by a trickling fountain, on a shady porch, or overlooking a garden. The staff were friendly, helpful and casual. This is a very nice place to stay.

Beautiful, pleasant inn. The grounds were spectacular. We stayed in the Lake View suite, which is in the main house. It was beautifully decorated and had a big picture window with a relaxing view. The balcony was very pleasant and we enjoyed sipping wine and watching the sun set. Breakfast was very good, especially the home-made granola (yum!). We will go again! The Ranch is located close to Durango and very convenient. Friendly, efficient staff.

Everyone was very friendly and helpful while allowing us as much privacy and space as we desired. I didn't include this request when making our reservation, but Candace made a gluten-free waffle for me when I saw that waffles were on the menu for breakfast. We recommend the Kennebeck Cafe for dinner. We are thankful for the mid-week, off-season rate for our room (Sunset Casita) because it was affordable for us and just amazing. We recommend the drive to Silverton and Ourey which was spectacular!
