My sister and I stayed here in May 2008 while we were in town researching our family history. Both her and I have travelled a LOT, and we are very picky! First, our hosts were very friendly and helpful. They literally welcome you into their home. There is free appetizers and wine at 5 or 6 PM (can't remember, had too much wine!) which we missed only one night. It's a great opportunity to sit and chat with the locals and get advice from your hosts while enjoying whatever Darlene cooks up. Since the weather was always nice, we sat outside and enjoyed the BEAUTIFUL scenery. We watched blue birds and robins feed their babies while we chatted and drank wine. Darlene is an EXCELLENT cook. She serves up a gourmet breakfast every morning. I'm still lusting over the broiled red grapefruit with anise and mint! We were so full after breakfast every day that we never ate lunch the whole time we were in Pagosa Springs! Second, the rooms are immaculate!! The true test of a hotel/B&B is if I can take a BATH without worrying-Elkwood Manor passes with flying colors! We were complimenting Darlene (who cleans the place herself) on how spotless everything was, and she commented on how one of her pet peeves is finding hair laying around, so she gets on her hands and knees to make sure there aren't any! I felt bad for her, because my sister and I both have long hair-we really made her earn the money! They do have a no shoe rule, but they provide slippers for you to walk around the house in. Third, the price was awesome compared to the run down dirty looking other places in town. My sister and I stayed in the Miranda Ella Quarters. We had essentially 'Jack and Jill' rooms with a big bathroom between us. It was such a deal at about $130 a night!! The fireplace in each room is connected to it's own thermostat, so when you want heat it lights the fire. I would ABSOLUTELY stay here again, and I highly recommend that you stay here when in the area.
