"With all honesty, I can't think of anything that needs improvement. We look to B&B experiences to provide hospitality and comfort. You provided this beyond any other B&B we've visited in the area. We can end our search for the perfect weekend retreat! Your openness to families (especially those of us with young children) is a huge plus."
"We thoroughly enjoyed staying at your lodge. Give Chester a hug for Amanda. We look forward to visiting again soon. (Robin, Todd, Amanda)"
"Thank you for your hospitality and kindness. We had an amazing time, filled with relaxation. Just what we needed! We hope to come back. (Lauralee, Amy, Laura)"
"Mesa Verde.. train to Silverton.. white water raft trip in Durango.. Sundance Bear was our base camp for these excursions. However, it was much more than that. The 80 acres provided ample opportunity for exploring and space for pitching horse shoes, throwing a ball or stick with Chester, reading, or just watching the sun set. Stephen did not miss a single night in the hot tub. (Steve, Jennifer, Sarah and Stephen, Houston, TX)"
"The Sundance Bear Lodge was a special experience - a nap, evening talk on the porch, a great bed, computer online - thank you for your hospitality. (Louise)"
"Thank you so much for everything. This place is wonderful. I'm glad you are kind enough to share it. (Kimberlee)"
"We enjoyed our family reunion; the great view of the countryside, hiking trails and the wonderful accommodations. (Dennis & Judy)"
"What a superb experience - Sundance Bear sunsets, Chester and cats, and a cozy room to tell stories and catch up with family. I love it here! (Bryn)"
"We still talk about what a great time we had at the lodge. Thank you again for your warm hospitality. Our son still talks about the dutch babies for breakfast. (Marsha)"
"It has been such a marvelous blessing to have had the chance to stay with you at your lovely ranch. The beauty of the surrounding mountains made our retreat even more special. (Jo, Heidi, Luis, David)"
"We have wonderful memories of our brief stay - beautiful surroundings and delightful hosts. All agree - a longer stay next time is in order. (Grace, James & family)"
"Wonderful stay. We enjoyed your hospitality, delicious breakfasts, and use of the laundry. Thanks. (Sue)"
"Both of you made this vacation absolutely magnificent. You are two of the most gracious people we've ever met. It was more like spending a week with family. Please give Chester an extra scratch behind the ear for us! (Eve & Harry)"
"The boys had a wonderful time. On the plane Stephen asked if I thought Chester missed him. He will always remember (the horses) Tessa & Missey. We are already planning our trip back next fall. (Roops)"
"We had such a relaxing, enjoyable visit in your home. I feel blessed we found Sundance Bear. There's so much to see and do that we hope to return. Thanks again! (Cathy & Peter)"
"A short note to say hi and thank you for being a great host and the enjoyable time we had while at your place! It was a very relaxing time, and a great time with family. "
"The kids send their love to Chester - friends for life! I still dream about the fresh baked muffins. (Nigel)"
"Susan and Bob Scott truly opened their home to us and made us feel like family. We never really felt like guests. The surroundings were magnificent and we were fed more food for breakfast than we ever normally eat! (Pauline from Florida)"
"The setting was idyllic, the lodge had phenomenal panoramic views of Mesa Verde, the innkeepers made you feel very much at home and the accommodations were very comfortable and clean. (Cathy from Boulder, Colorado)"
The world has changed - the "social internet" means every guest can be a travel critic and every new guest can research what others have to say before they make a decision.
The links to the left go to travel sites - where people are free to write their reactions without owner involvement. And they appear on the internet almost immediately, so you see what is happening in real time. We as owners can respond, but we have no control over what they write.
We feel blessed with the positive reactions, both after they have returned home and what they have said directly to us. In this business, these are our lifeblood.
