I did give myself a day here to do nothing more than get caught up on the blog, wander around the historic downtown and sip coffee very slowly. The dramatic scenery ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsCountry Sunshine Bed and Breakfast Durango
We really, really enjoyed our stay at this quiet B&B just outside town. The hot tub on a dark, starry night can't be beat. The proprietors (Hi Walter & Jodi!) are also the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. We are still recreating their fresh-fruit-filled breakfast parfaits at home!

Historical Traveler Reviews Country Sunshine Bed and Breakfast Durango
My husband and I instantly felt at ease upon walking into this cozy B&B. Our room (the Columbine), beautifully decorated in blue and white, was comfortable and clean. I really liked the Ralph Lauren towels....they are nicer than mine at home!
A group of eight of us toured Colorado by motorcycle for two weeks. It was glorious. We prefer B & B properties so we can socialize after a day on the bikes. We loved our stay at the Country Sunshine. The hosts were gracious and very accomodating to our needs. The four rooms we had were all comfortable and very clean. The breakfasts were also wonderful. The food was delicious and presented with flair and variety. We also found the two dogs to be well mannered and very obedient. It is obvious that a lot of care and work has been done to make the home comfortable and inviting by adding decks, pathways in stone and a fire pit. for evening relaxation.
Country Sunshine is a hard act to follow A+++++++++++++++
We had a wonderful stay at Country Sunshine in Durango. Our room was very spacious, clean had a beautiful view of the mountains. Our hosts were very charming and the breakfast that they made was to die for. They went far beyond our expectations of a bed and breakfast. The rooms are very reasonably priced. Anybody who says any differently about this wonderful place is completely false in what they say. Me and my family definetely will return and I will rec. Country Sunshine to all of my clients.
I had stayed a few years ago at the neighboring bed & breakfast, the Logwood. I was disappointed to find it closed. I called Country Sunshine in place of a larger hotel on the river in town. My mother, son and I, that's three generations were VERY happy. From the quality of the linens and towells to the friendly guests and management our stay was wonderful. Many guests did not seem in a hurry to leave as they enjoyed the visits with each other. This atmosphere is created by the host and hostess/owners and it felt like home and better.
We wanted to stay in Durango and found this B & B on the Internet - what great luck. Our room was spotlessly clean, decorated beautifully not to mention that we slept like babies. Jodi and Walter could not have been friendlier or more hospitalble. The breakfasts were outstanding and the hosts went out of their way to insure that any dietary needs were met if requested. As an additional convenience Wi Fi was provided enabling us to write this review.
I've been meaning to write my comments about this wonderful Bed & Breakfast ever since I stayed there in September of last year, and again in October. I was there for a full week each time and truly hated to leave! My first, The River View Room, was spacious and airy and had a lovely view across meadows toward the Animus River. It had a large tiled bathroom and was beautifully appointed with scented soaps, thick beautiful Ralph Lauren towels and all of the niceties you'd expect in a really high-end luxury hotel. The bed was more comfortable than my own at home, with gorgeous linens and quilted coverlet, and a selection of pillows from soft to firm. I felt this room had to be underpriced at $100 a night!
Our hosts could not have been more gracious. We felt right at home, and they were eager to help us learn all about the area. I usually dislike dogs, but theirs was pleasant and unobtrusive. The food was great, especially the potato pancakes. Our room was plenty large enough, and everything was fresh and spotless. Our hosts even booked the Silverton train for us, and the tickets were waiting for us when we arrived. If you like bird watching you will love this place. The feeders were buzzing with activity. There was a wide variety of birds, from hummingbirds to woodpeckers. The name certainly fit - it was in the country, a comfortable 12 miles north of Durango, and there was plenty of sunshine. We look forward to returning again next year. Maybe that bad review was an attempt keep other people away so the reviewer might have a better chance at booking again. That was certainly not our experience. I uploaded pictures of Walter and Jodi that I took in their kitchen.
We spent five wonderful days (in July) with Walter and Jodi enjoying the facilties, food and other guests. The rooms are nicley decorated, clean, and comfortable. We appreciated the services provided and did not want for anything more. The location is convenient to tourist attractions in the Durango area without having to stay downtown. We will defintely go back and we have highly recommended this B & B to our friends. Walter and Jodi made reservations for us on the famous Durango & Silverton RR and it was appreciated.
We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before our honeymoon trip to Durango, but all of our expectations were exceeded. The owners were kind and friendly. They cooked amazing breakfasts that could be changed to our liking. The bed and breakfast was quiet and allowed for a lot of personal space if needed and also allowed time to mingle with other guests.
On the trip to the bed and breakfast we were running late, so we called ahead to let the owners know our situation. They were very nice and waited up for us until we arrived.
We noticed they are also constantly updating the house and its surroundings by adding a hot tub and fire pit. We had such a wonderful time there we are really looking forward to returning next year.
As you walk into this charming bed and breakfast you are immediately impressed by the attention to detail. We had flown into Phoenix and were weary from our nine hour drive. The owners helped carry our luggage to our room which was downstairs - the Aspen - and then they quickly disappeared to leave us to rest. The room was basking in the afternoon sun as the curtains and blind were pulled open - we were immediately greeted by the country sunshine and the fresh smell of the linens. We unpacked, showered and rested until we were woken by the smell of fresh baked cookies which were served with an assortment of teas and coffees, also available all day long. We are going back in October, but this time we are flying into Durango :) Expect to be well fed and taken care of at a fraction of the cost of what similar services would cost nearby.
