“10 Best: Places to dine down on the farm”

On Friday nights from May through Thanksgiving, this inn sets a table replete with fresh ingredients, many grown on the farm or produced in the area. “It’s all organic and all local. It’s the epitome of a farm dinner,” Jones says. “It’s a very engaged agricultural community. This is our Shangri-La, our gem on the western slope of Colorado.” Read the article in USA Today!

About Us

Tucked into a serene corner of Colorado’s North Fork Valley, near charming little Paonia—and 10 million miles from city life—our lovingly restored 1908 farmhouse inn and gardens is a great way to caress, de-stress, and decompress yourself while enjoying a rural lifestyle in total comfort.

“We met at Friday’s dinner session last week. My husband, Brian, and I just wanted to thank you again for a delicious meal! It was a great way to finish up our stay in the mountains. We wish there was a place like yours in our town in South Carolina!”

Nicole Z. Cendrowski

So Much Fun to be Had

Lots to explore in this part of Colorado.  A couple of nice trails begin in our back yard. Countless trail heads for day hiking in the North Fork Valley. Check out Black Canyon of the Gunnison. There you will find  hiking and fishing in gold medal waters, along with wilderness watching, and rock climbing.

“Like many of her visitors, I left feeling deeply nourished and refreshed.”
