My husband and I wanted a different experience when visiting Durango and we were lucky enough to find Blue Lake Ranch on tripadvisor. We stayed in a little Casita which was so charming that we didn't want to leave. Our innkeeper was kind enough to bring us a lovely tray of food for breakfast as we were leaving to take the Durango-Silverthon Railroad (another must do) very early the next morning. We were greeted by beautiful deer several times during our stay. Breakfast on our last day was fantastic. Everyone tries to meet your every wish and they manage it! Stay here...you will have a wonderful stay.
