“Avocado chocolate torte”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

If you are looking for fine home cooking, warm hospitality, and idyllic rural settings, you cannot go wrong staying at the Country Sunshine B&B.

The B&B is set on a quiet, forested block that slopes down to the Animas River, the same river that flows through Durango, just a few miles downstream. Walter is happy to start a fire in the downstairs fireplace so that you can sit and enjoy the warmth on a cool evening. In the morning I sat in the sunshine on the deck and photographed birds as they pecked at the hanging feeders.

Walter prepares all the food himself. Breakfast is a fine-dining experience, while cookies are available all afternoon, and in the evening Walter brought us some of the most delicious cakes imaginable.

I should mention a minor anecdote that reveals a great deal about the character of Walter and Jodi. I inadvertently left my guide book to New Mexico in the room, and didn't realize until we'd driven for several hours. Walter and Jodi immediately posted the book back to my home address at no extra charge.

Country Sunshine was easily the best B&B we stopped at on our Southwestern holiday.

We recently stayed again at Country Sunshine, one night on our way to Texas and two nights on our return to Colorado. Our first stay was in July 2013. It was such a wonderful experience we couldn't wait to return. This time we took advantage of the hot tub. It was so relaxing sitting with a glass of wine looking out at the mountains. The hosts, Walter and Jodi, are the best as well as all the staff. It was truly like "coming home". The breakfast goes beyond delicious. Everything is a delight to the palate. Then, in the evening, there's a gourmet dessert that is better than any five star restaurant. All the rooms are fabulous, but the last two nights we stayed in the Golden Oaks. It's large, luxurious and very romantic if you're celebrating a special occasion. If you're looking for fabulous food, delightful people, a peaceful location, superior accommodations and a stay to remember make a reservation at Country Sunshine. You won't be disappointed.

The Country Sunshine Bed and Breakfast is just what a bed and breakfast should be. We enjoyed all the special attention and atmosphere. A big plus is the delicious food created by Walter. There are so many extra details that all add up to a great stay. Nothing is off the list !! Everything is very clean and orderly. It is fun to watch many different birds come to their feeders. The place is nestled in with large trees and oak brush - it is very quiet and peaceful. The host really makes you feel welcome and at home.

Our family stayed at Country Sunshine from 12/29/2013 through 12/31/2013. Walter & Jodi made our stay one of the most memorable B&B experiences our family has had. We stayed in the Aspen room. The Aspen room was tucked away from the other rooms and was very quiet, clean and comfortable. The delicious breakfast, 9pm desserts and cookies added to our stay.

In this day and age of 1-800-who cares, Walter and Jodi far exceeded our expectations and made us feel like family in a warm, inviting setting. We will definitely go back.

Staying at Country Sunshine was an amazing experience. Jodi & Walter are two of the best B&B hosts that we've had the pleasure to meet. The inn was super comfortable, dining area with huge tables great for interacting with other guests, lots of bird watching from the patio, common area with toasty fireplace & a refrigerator filled with beer, wine, soft drinks, water, etc. for guests (a first for us at any B&B). Can't forget to mention the yummy cookies baked by Walter & the nightly desserts. What a treat! Walter even has all his recipes available for guests to take home. Must try his chocolate torte soon - it was the best. Can't wait to return to the Durango area & Country Sunshine.

My husband and I stayed in the Writer's Den room at the Country Sunshine. I can honestly say that this is one of the best bed and breakfasts that we have ever experienced. The inn is so charming and the hosts are absolutely wonderful. Breakfast was delicious, and the nightly desserts were amazing (my husband doesn't usually eat dessert, but he loved Walter's creations). The little details and the amenities made our stay very enjoyable. If you are going to be in the Durango area, you must stay here. The only problem is that you will have a hard time leaving.

Room Tip: Writer's Den was comfortable, roomy, and clean.
