Planning a Durango getaway? There’s more to it than browsing local hotels and motels or picking out area attractions. In fact, we invite you to try something completely different – a Durango bed and breakfast!
Choosing a Durango B&B over other kinds of lodging is a great way to get to know the locals, personalize your stay and, in many cases, spend less than you would checking in at the local Holiday Inn.
Here are four reasons why you should consider a checking out a Durango bed and breakfast on your upcoming escape:
Blue Lake Ranch
1. You appreciate the unique.
You already know there’s no place like Durango; build upon that experience by immersing yourself in local flavor! Three of Durango’s best B&B’s all come with their own brand of historic charm: Leland House was originally built in 1927; Blue Lake Ranch is a southwestern treasure trove; and The Gable House is an 1892 Queen Anne style Victorian palace, practically. You won’t experience surroundings like these anywhere else on Earth!
2. You want personal attention.
When you check into a hotel, in many cases, you’re nothing more than a body in a bed. Checking into a bed and breakfast means you’re a guest in someone’s home. You’ll find that most B&B owners, especially here in Durango, will go out of their way to make sure you’re comfortable. They may have made sure to place their establishment away from the hustle and bustle of loud freeways or roads or they’ll let you bring your four-legged family members, too.
3. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Sure, you could start out your day with a bold of cold cereal or a waffle from the continental breakfast bar at your hotel, but the first meal of the day is often a true occasion at a Durango B&B. Gable House B&B, which has won awards including the TripAdvisor 2013 Certificate of Excellence, makes sure you start your day on the right foot by putting out a gourmet spread customized for each guest.
4. You will experience the local lifestyle.
Biking culture is a big deal in Durango, and the innkeepers at the LeLand House, also a Certificate of Excellence winner, take this to heart. Your stay comes with the use of one of their cruiser bikes, letting you pedal around the city to your heart’s content. Additionally, you’ll find that local B&B owners are integral members of the local community who always know about insider events and area happenings. They’re almost always quick to recommend the best of the best and can help you plan a getaway that’s totally unique to the Four Corners.
