I found the Mountain Goat lodge through tripadvisor, and it sounded very nice. I had a pleasant phone conversation with Gina prior to booking, and it sounded like just the place to get away from town for a short break. I can definitely tell you we were not disappointed. Gina was friendly, charming and entertaining. Her people skills were obvious right away. We loved visiting with the goats, dogs, chickens and llama that lived there. When the other guests joined us at the dinner table for a fabulous Christmas dinner it felt like a family gathering. After the meal we were serenaded with holiday carols sung by some of the teenage guests accompanied by Gina on the piano. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, even including fresh eggs from the resident chickens. The rooms and sleeping facilities were very clean and extremely comfortable. The views of the mountains from our room were spectacular! Though this was only an overnight stay for us, this lodge would be a great place to have an extended visit, and it is also well suited for a large group or perhaps a family reunion. It is extremely pet friendly---bring your dogs if you wish. Although lodging is not inexpensive here, the value of this B&B is excellent.
