What to Expect

We may be a little quirky. After all, we are located in a town of less than 800 people! That does mean you won't find a strip mall here; but that doesn't mean you won't enjoy your stay. We pay attention to the details that count:

  • We put cleanliness first. That includes all the TV remotes and bedspreads! Clean, every time.
  • Charming, unique rooms with new bathrooms, new electricity, cable TV and Internet, and a wide variety of room configurations. You may pick among rooms with single beds to suites with kitchenettes.
  • Comfortable beds. Be sure to schedule a wakeup call so you don't oversleep. Many of our guests tell us that our beds are as comfortable, or more comfortable, than their beds at home.
  • Great hot breakfasts. Need we say more? (except during off-season--see note above)
  • A convenient location. Especially for train buffs. The Cumbres & Toltec depot is only three minutes from the hotel.
  • Beautiful setting with 360 degree mountain views, cool temperatures and no humidity. Enjoy our gorgeous weather and great sunrises and sunsets upstairs on our rooftop relaxation deck.
  • Plenty to do in the surrounding area. Tell us your interests, we can help you plan a great trip!
  • A knowledgeable staff. Browse our local reference library to find out more about the area. We can help you arrange a perfect get-away in our quaint little town.
