“travel with our dog for the first time”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

We have been traveling to bed and breakfast inns for about 30 years. For the first time, we traveled with our older big dog. Our experience could not have been better. The Mountain Goat Inn is beautiful. The setting is spectacular. The bed was cozy and the breakfasts were delicious. The goats were so fun to watch. Our dog was greeted and always made comfortable. If you go, and you should, ask Gina to play the piano.

It's like a home away from home. Gina has done a wonderful job of creating a warm and comfortable invironment. The location is perfect for both winter and summer activities .My wife and I, along with our two dogs stayed in the Princeton room.Great views of the mountains and back country.The Goats are really cute and friendly. Gina was so kind as to watch our dogs for us while we went skiing at Monarch.We are always looking for a place where we can bring the dogs so that is a huge plus for us. Breakfast was excellent, I love the fresh orange and apple juice Gina makes.If you like a variety of coffee she has a Starbucks like menu. We are looking forward to returning sometime this summer to enjoy all the local activities in the area such as river rafting, hiking, mountain biking, etc.

This B&B is conveniently located for spending time at Monarch Mountain ski area and downtown Salida. I had a very comfortable stay in the Shavano room. Other reviewers have mentioned some noise, but my stay was very quiet. Antoinette took good care of my husband and me with tasty lattes and filling breakfasts. My biggest criticism is that Gina was out of town for our entire visit (which we didn't know ahead of time), so we didn't get to learn about the goats or sample her goat cheese!

Room Tip: The Shavano room had a southern balcony and a western window, so you got great mountian views and th...

Dear Gina,
Kathleen & I want to thank you for again providing a wonderful experience for us during our stay in Salida last week. This is the second time we have stayed at Mountain Goat Lodge and the quality of your accommodations and the food and refreshments were just superb on each of our visits. Adding to our enjoyment were your personal graciousness and that of your able assistant Antoinette. We look forward to again taking advantage of your hospitality in the months to come.
Fondest Regards, Jack M. Jackson

Room Tip: All nicely appointed. We prefer suite on north side of facility

everything the name conjures up; beautiful view of the mountains, cavorting goats in the field and a combination of lodge feel with varnished log staircase, soaring fireplace, plush leather sofas and antiques furniture including a grand piano. The breakfasts were hardy, creative and delicious. The timing couldn't have been better with the late Sept. change - the aspen were turning and the chamisa blanketed the Salida valley with a blaze of yellow. We'll look forward to returning to the "Goat" soon.

Room Tip: we had the Mt. Shavano room which had a glorious view of the same.

Takes dogs! View 4 14ers from the back deck and our room. Wonderful inventive breakfasts. Gina strives to make your stay a pleasure. We have traveled extensively in the US and 14 European nations. Most of our B&B stops were in Europe and most were great fun, just like MGL. It is a bit close to the road so there is some road noise in the front rooms, but that also makes getting out in the winter easier. They have friendly dogs, goats, chickens, and a lama. This is not a pretentious Southern Mansion, but like being a guest in someone’s home. And so many adventures in this Area.

Room Tip: Back rooms should be quieter. We stayed in the suite on the 1st floor. There is some road noise but...

We enjoyed our stay August 25 & 26. The Mt. Princeton room has the most spectacular view of the mountains. We loved sitting out on the small deck. Captured not only some wonderful pictures but some wonderful memories as well.

We had the romantic package which included chocolates, champagne, flowers and chocolate covered strawberries. All was wonderful.

Breakfast each morning was fabulous.

Gina, the place is beautiful and you are a wonderful hostess. Thank you for an enjoyable stay and we look forward to this again very soon.

Room Tip: The drive to the town of Salida is only a 10 minute drive at most. Gina has some wonderful suggesti...
