... admitted yesterday, the 5th, with a nasty infection of the uterus (called endometritis, hopefully I spelled that right). I took oral meds initially and just wasn't bouncing back fast enough, then came down with a fever which is rare. So here I am in the hospital, blogging, and waiting for my next dose of IV meds. The boys are visiting during the day and hopefully ...
... were sat chatting to Coll in McDonalds when I realised there were random horses walking around on a patch of dirt outside McDonalds with no fences around them which I found incredibly weird. I haven't been able to ring Mum for a few days as we haven't had any wifi in the hotels we've been staying at so I sent her a quick message using the free wifi in McDonalds before we left to let her know we were okay. As we left there I saw lots of stray horses wandering right next to the ...

Chip however knew most everything and was on pins and needles ensuring the babies were healthy and had all fingers, toes, and baby parts, which the tech assured us they did. Eventually, after some times goes by, she confirms that baby A is a boy! We both look at each other surprised ...

Fit Bro was keen to push on and we headed up Highway 550 to Molas Pass. And I mean up. I saw alot of Fit's back on this road, and in fact in the whole trip. 90 mins climbing for Fit and alot more for me. Maybe I misunderstood the trip, but this was getting tougher and tougher.

Historical Traveler Reviews Apple Orchard Inn Durango
Truly A Home Away From Home
My wife and I travel quite a bit and we love to stay at BNBs because they provide a distinctive warm atmosphere. In this regard, the Apple Orchard Inn, Durango. CO, represents the best of the best in BNBs. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we enjoyed the personal friendliness of the inn owners, Celeste and John. As for the food during our six day stay, we thoroughly enjoyed the variety of home-cooked breakfasts and afternoon cookies, etc. which were were absolutely superb.We certainly intend to recommend the Apple Orchard Inn to our friends A stay there is well worth while. It is a very special and welcome treat to those who love to travel.
My wife and I stayed at this bed & breakfast for our honeymoon and I truly believe we could not have found a better location to spend a romantic getaway. First off, the owners, John and Celeste, are first-rate. From the moment we arrived, it was as if we were family members coming home for a visit. The went out of their way to help us get train tickets, restaurant reservations, or pretty much anything else we desired. However, not once did we feel like they were "hovering"...it was as if they appeared out of nowhere to take care of our every need and then vanished!
My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Durango at the Apple Orchard Inn. We stayed in the Fireside Cottage back in March of 2004 and we still talk about it all the time and can't wait to get back. The gourmet breakfasts are amazing(the best we've ever had) and John and Celeste can really send you to the best restaurants in town. I tell people all the time about the Inn and would recommend it to anyone.
Apple Orchard Inn is consistently Outstanding
The Apple Orchard Inn has the best rooms, the best food, and the best service I have ever experienced. John and Celeste make everyone feel welcomed. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated. But the best part is the food. Breakfast, snacks, and most of all dinner, are the reasons I go back year after year. Ask Celeste to make her world famous
Apple Crostata for dessert!
We came to Durango, CO for our Honeymoon. We chose Apple Orchard Inn- Cortland Cottage because we wanted somewhere cozy, nice, warm, & not your normal hotel stay for our special time. Our stay was better then we could have wished for. The veiw, the room, the fireplace in our cottage, the breakfasts, snacks, cleanliness, friendliness, everything was just perfect! The web site to the Inn just shows a little of the true beauty that it is.
Apple Orchard Inn in Durango, CO.
A place to rest, soak and eat well! Celeste and John were very warm and accomodating. We have traveled and stayed at various B and B's around the world, and the Apple Orchard offered the best food and baked goods. We highly recommend this wonderful B and B.
We have been to the Apple Orchard Inn three seperate years during the holidays. Each time we have stayed in a different cabin and have enjoyed each stay no matter the cabin and it's unique decor. We have especially enjoyed the little extras, such as heated floors, fireplaces and wonderful meals, not to mention the beautiful setting. You will not be dissappointed by Celete's gormet expertise! Celeste and John have always been gratious, friendly and fun. You get what you pay for and this is worth the expense when you want a nice get-away with the extra touches.
We have taken our family group of 17 to the Apple Orchard Inn for the week between Christmas and New Years four times. It has become like going home. John and Celeste Gardiner are gracious and welcoming hosts and Celeste is a gourmet cook. The included breakfasts are hearty, delicious and varied. We usually arrange for at least four dinners during our week's stay and they are without exception an experience we look forward to. Celeste and I decide ahead of time on menus and she is always careful to include something for the children...for example,the tenderloin au poivre is served with a scrumptious rich sauce with mushrooms, but she makes another plain sauce for the children who won't eat the mushrooms. Her bread is homemade as are all the wonderful desserts. The best cheesecake I've ever tasted, not to mention her profiteroles or sticky toffee puddings. The rooms and cottages are delightfully decorated, each with its own bath and often a jacuzzi or whirlpool for two. The beds are all feather beds....nary a backache to be had!
A really great place to stay
My sister and I stayed at the Apple Orchard Inn while doing research on an ancestor of ours who lived in Durango. The hosts, John and Celeste, were very gracious, and Celeste's gourmet breakfasts and round-the-clock homemade chocolate chip cookies were wonderful. They also have two very affectionate pets, a golden retriever and a furry white cat. The cottages and grounds are beautiful. We also met and became friends with some fellow travelers there. Although a bit expensive, I would heartily recommend this B&B to anyone.
Our Best Ever B and B Experience!
We stayed at the Apple Orchard Inn during a vacation visit to Durango in May, 2004. This was the best B and B we have ever experienced. The innkeepers, John and Celeste, are wonderfully low-key and made us feel comfortable with whatever arrangements we needed. Breakfasts were gourmet class. If Celeste offers you an evening dinner option, take it! She is a European trained chef and you will not regret your decision. There are many great things to do and places to see in the region - Celeste and John will help you find what you want. The room/cabin options are very nicely appointed with very comfortable beds and nice personal touches that make this a great place to stay. Expensive but worth every penny.
