Great staff, excellent room and beautiful area. The pool is nice and the hot tubs on decks of each room is awesome.

Great property. Will stay again. Quiet. Great staff. The only thing that kinda rubbed me the wrong way was they have a locking door in the hallway to give a neighboring room a private balcony however that is our fire escape route (per the map on the door). They might want to reconsider the private balcony for that room before the fire marshal does an inspection.

Start with the good stuff. Pleasant checkin host was really nice and accommodating seems we showed up early. The bar and restaurant staff very nice and friendly and very helpful. The pool was great hotel hot tub and sitting areas were very nice and peaceful kinda had a tree house feel. Area around for a small town was ok safe and quiet. 15 mins to downtown Ouray. On the negative side. The rooms are very high priced for the quality of the interior. The charm of the cabin feel is nice but the decor and quality was lacking. The air conditioning wasn’t on the first day and the second day came on and stayed on full blast with no way to control and we had to use extra blankets to stay warm during the night. We had a room with the a hot tub on the deck which was great other then the fact there was carpet on the deck that was wet and smelled of mildew which took away from the nice view and hot tub feature. All in all a good stay but there are simple improvements that can be made to bring the level of quality up to warrant 280 a night.

We loved having our own hot tub outside our room, the size of our room and the spa. We think that the property overall was beautiful but you could see where the past year may have had an effect on the upkeep of the place. It needs spruced up and repaired in some places. The pictures don't quite match the actual conditions of the place.
