Reviewed 19 April 2006

We have been here 5 times total out of 3 years. The Apple Orchard Inn is why we always come to Durango, CO. You will not find a better place for the price. The rooms are wonderful, the hospitatliy perfect, and the attention to the customer is number one. Celeste and John Gardiner are wonderful people who are like family to us in Colorado.

Dear Fans of B&Bs,

If you are a fan of all the hospitality and comfort a bed and breakfast has to offer then YOU MUST visit the APPLE ORCHARD INN in Durango, Colorado. Why? I am happy to tell you. My husband, Stephen and I just stayed there this last weekend for a birthday celebration/bluegrass festival held annually in Durango. I am a native of Colorado and I have never found a more warm, welcoming and beautiful area the state over. One of the reasons we loved our stay so much was the hospitality enjoyed at the Apple Orchard Inn. Celeste and John were both so very kind and their knowledge of the area and suggestions of places to dine and things to do was PERFECT. ALSO, the gardens, lakes, main house and cottages were breathtaking. WOW!! Each room and cottage was unique, beautiful and comfortable. Furnishings were impecable, and the decor magificent with a tremendous sense of care, from the chocolates next to the bed, to the feather quilts, feather beds (changed and fluffed each day), jacuzzi tubs etc... AND THE BREAKFAST. Celeste is an amazing chef. Each morning, breakfast was delicious and made fresh - from the homemade pearbutter (with pears from their very own orchard) to the homemade french bread for the french toast. And the homemade blueberry scones were to die for!!! YUMMMMMM!!! Every evening John and Celeste welcome their guests with an impromtu visit in the main house; complete with wine, fresh baked cookies and various crackers and snacks. What a great way to start the evening. Do yourself and a loved one a favor -- plan a romantic getaway to Durango and the Apple Orchard Inn. We love it and you will too!!!!
