Salida bed and breakfast description

The Mountain Goat Lodge offers casual and comfortable rustic-style lodging with all the modern conveniences of home. Wi-Fi access is available throughout the lodge, each bedroom has an HDTV with HBO, Showtime, and other premium channels, DVD, mini-fridge, bathrobes, luxury linens and toiletries, private bath, rustic log beds, and individual balconies.
Unlike most Salida hotels, the Mountain Goat Lodge is located on 19 acres of rolling pastures with our resident goats roaming the meadows that provides a beautiful and peaceful getaway. The Lodge rests at the foot of the famous Sawatch Mountain Range in central Colorado, just 7 miles from historic downtown district of Salida.
Guests are welcome to roam the 19 acre property, commune with the resident goats, llama and chickens, and spend time in our new geodesic dome greenhouse.
NEW: 4 retro trailer campers which increase sleeping capacity by 8-12 people! This is an extra fee of 100.00 per trailer per night, when booking the entire lodge.
Classes are available in goat husbandry, raising backyard chickens and cheese making. Email the owner for details. Discounted group rates are available on the classes.

We are located conveniently 20 miles from Monarch Ski Resort, 1/2 mile from the Gold Medal Award Winning Arkansas River and 7 miles from the historic arts town of Salida. A car is required to get the most out of our area, but taxi services are available.

Our lodge is Pet Friendly. Pets are welcome for $20 per pet per night. On site kennel is available, as is a half-acre off-leash dog area. Dogs are welcome in the lodge and guest rooms.

Salida and surrounds offer year-round activities. In the summer the river provides kayaking, fishing, rafting, and swimming. Fall provides colorful 'leaf-peeping' as well as wine-and beer-tasting, ghost towns, antique hunting, art galleries and fine dining.We have 5 hot springs within 45 minutes from our lodge. The Great Sand Dunes are 45 minutes away.
Winter and spring offer skiing, snowshoeing, cross country, snowmobiling, dog sledding. Spring and Summer offer the best hiking including opportunities to climb the 14'rs - the Collegiate Peaks of the Rocky Mountains just outside our back door! The Royal Gorge is one hour away. Zip lining, horseback riding and rock climbing are also nearby.
Your hosts Gina and Darcy are always available to offer exciting activity options and know the best tour operators and restaurants in the area.

The lodge operates as a Bed and Breakfast Inn most of the time. Our listing on VRBO is for entire lodge bookings for groups. If you desire a partial booking of the lodge, please book our from our website online.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: Your Rocky Mountain lodge hosts are Gina and D’Arcy Marcell, recent transplants from the Pacific Northwest. Offering Colorado mountain lodging comes naturally to Gina through her background in hospitality and 20 years in customer service for the Airline and Travel Industry. Gina is a true entrepreneur who enjoys people. She owned her own businesses while raising three sons. She enjoys cooking, entertaining, and sharing her knowledge of animals, especially of goats. Gina became a passionate lover of goats after adopting some orphaned baby goats. That experience grew into a hobby of rescuing unwanted goats, rehabilitating, and then re-homing them as pets. Gina has mentored teens in all aspects of goat husbandry and will continue to educate others to the benefits of goat ownership. Gina enjoys making goat cheese and uses fresh goat milk, goat cheese, and fresh eggs in the wonderful meals and snacks she serves to guests.

                          Why the Owner Chose Salida:
                          WE LOVE THE SUNNY DAYS AND MOUNTAIN AIR!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                          The Marcells have a small herd of dairy goats and share their love of these entertaining creatures with B&B guests and the community at large. After realizing that the wet climate in the Pacific Northwest was not conducive to healthy goats, the Marcells began to look for a dry climate where they could own an Inn and also where their goats would thrive. The Mountain Goat Lodge was the perfect solution! Additionally, the Marcells brought their flock of special Americauna laying hens from the Northwest. These special hens lay a light green egg.
