It was ok...

The land was incredible and staff were very nice but the room could have been much cleaner. The floors and walls were dirty. The shower was growing black mold on the walls and curtain. I called the office to have the shower cleaned and curtain replaced. They promptly sent someone over but they did a half a$$ job cleaning it. I ended up going to the store to buy cleaner and cleaned it myself. Overall we enjoyed our stay but are unhappy about staying in a dirty place.

Absolutely loved the peace and quiet of this resort. Staff were so very friendly and helpful in arranging our late check in, and especially thanks to the wonderful lady preparing breakfast (sorry I dont remember your name) who really accommodated us for an early start to the day while she was setting up (hope the graduation in Denver went well!) perfectly situated for an easy drive into Durango for dinner, and again in the morning to watch the D&SNGR train leave. lovely comfortable clean room could not have been more perfect. thankyou all SO much for a lovely stay
