Relaxing, Private and BEAUTIFUL

4.4 on September 05, 2017

We stayed in one of the cottages in which we felt out of the hustle and bustle of larger place. This particular B&B had gorgeous grounds with lawns, flowers and meandering streams. The gourmet breakfasts filled us up so we could do our outdoor activities for the day. But that isn't all! At the end of the day, there is happy hour with wine and beer. What a great end to a day before getting cleaned up and eating out. We felt it was a great value and can't wait to go back.

Stayed there only one night. If we would have known before how nice it is there, we would have opted to stay longer

If there is a heaven on Earth then I'd be The Apple Orchard Inn

Me and my girlfriend had a an absolute awesome time there. Kathi was absolutely impeccable in her service. Her cooking skills off the charts and you had a different breakfast every morning!!!! The premises was extremely immaculate. I'm talking about USA Golf Open level, with beautiful flowers planted all over the place, pollination taking place by animals other then just bees, a small brooke runs through the area offering a tranquil aura to the experience. I'd recommend above all else!!!!!!

We had a wonderful one-night stay in this charming bed and breakfast. Our cottage was lovely, the hostess was friendly, and the property was absolutely gorgeous.

So peaceful

This is our second visit to Apple Orchard Inn. We stay in the cottages, as they are so peaceful with a front porch and back patio. The landscaping is gorgeous and the environment peaceful (about 15 minutes outside Durango--easy drive). The breakfasts were very filling and delicious. The happy hour pretty much consisted of wine and beer but both were good and it was fun to visit with other guests. The owner was helpful and friendly. We will stay there again.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Apple Orchard Inn. The grounds were beautiful, the cottage was wonderful, we had a king size bed and a extra large jetted tub. The area was beautiful and close to downtown Durango. The price was excellent as well. I highly recommend it and we will be returning as soon as the occasion for a getaway comes again.

A nice place to stay in an orchard

This is a nice, quiet place to stay near Durango. It is a little out of the way, but in a beautiful setting. The host was very courteous and showed us the site. The breakfast was good and abundant. The room was very large and the bed was comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone staying near Durango.

Weekend get away

The grounds were nice. The room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was good. Kitchen area was very messy and cluttered, not clean.

Cute Cottages

Overall our stay was very pleasant. We stayed in the Fireside Cottage which was, for the most part, what I anticipated, although a bit smaller than it appeared in the pictures. We found the bed/pillows very comfortable and most importantly the room was clean. My only slightly negative comment would be that breakfast was only served/offered from 8-8:30, which I found to be a very tight window to make. Seems extending the time to an hour would be much more convenient for guests.

Romantic Getaway

My wife and I stayed in the Fireside cabin for 3 nights in early Nov. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the property is lovely. We especially liked the easy to use gas fireplace and the jacuzzi tub. Kathy's breakfasts were outstanding. It is located 11 miles north of Durango, but that was not a problem for us.

Signature Dish

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
This has become a "Signature Dish" because returning guests always go to the ever-present cookie jar looking for them. Baked daily, these Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies aren't your run-of-the-mill cookies! They are filled with three kinds of chocolate, plus walnuts and pecans. Not exactly exciting, but they are baked at about 4 p.m. daily. When eaten straight out of the oven, it's heaven!
