Our recent stay at the Spruce Lodge was great. The breakfast is awesome and Dee was very accommodating to our special need (a pet traveled with us at the last minute unexpectedly). The room was comfortable and clean. We will return the the Spruce lodge on all future trips to the area and have even discussed a summer trip there... More

It was no problem adding a pet, we have pet friendly AND pet free rooms. Thanks for letting us know as soon as possible so that we could switch things around. I'm glad you found your room clean and comfortable. Those beds are top-notch, just purchased this last Summer. Hope to see you again soon! More

South Fork, CO must have the best marketing department in CO. This town is pretty much in the middle of nowhere, but we LOVED it! We found info while in Durango and decided to drive over Wolf Creek Pass (gorgeous) and check it out. Stayed at the very clean, quiet and budget-friendly Spruce Lodge. Neat accommodations, would have been great... More

Thank you for the very nice review! The cat's name is Carl and he is a sweetheart. He will sit outside and look sad so people let him in and share the leftover milk from their breakfast cereal. Silly cat. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay - we work very hard to keep the beds and linens amazingly fluffy, soft... More

My Dad and I stayed at this establishment recently on our way to Dolores, CO for an elk/mule deer hunt at the Colorado Hunting Lodge. We both found Dee and Rob excellent hosts.

The owners were so hospitable - they even made sure we had coffee at 4:00 am as we headed out the door for our daily hunt.

After 2 different stays, my wife and I plan to return here every year. The new kitchen serves a fabulous breakfast. Rob's pancake platter is great. We take advantage of the rafting trip (which is included with a 3-night stay). It's close to the Rio Grande Golf Club which I take advantage of, too. We also like to take the... More

After reading the excellent ratings from other guests I had to do some further review to make sure we were talking about the same place.

We stayed 3 nights recently and for the most part enjoyed it. Location is convenient, on the west side of town, near groceries, dining, etc. It's certainly a lodge, not a hotel, so don't expect luxury. Despite that, they have done a nice job with updating the decor and keeping the grounds. They have newer queen beds which were reasonably... More

“Fall and Spring are the slower times. It's packed in summer and winter. FALL IS SPECTACULAR! 48 hour cancellation. RV parking.”
  • GOLDEN autumn leaves and quaint view across the road.
  • My cat met one of the local chickens when we checked in
  • Two crisp white beds for just me and the cat. Warm cabin feeling,
  • My room with cat looking for me. Two chairs, small porch and Grill for general use.
