|Visit our Web site www.arborhouseinnco.com|
The Arbor House Inn, beautifully situated on the banks of the South Fork of the Rio Grande, offers its guests the experience of a peaceful, mountain getaway in their choice of five beautifully decorated guest rooms.
The entire inn is designed in a spirit of casual, mountain elegance, and each guest room has a private bath, satellite TV, DVD player, WiFi, phone, mini-fridge, microwave, coffee service, chocolates, hairdryers, and robes. In addition, our HONEYMOON SUITE, the Lovin' Oven, features a candelabra fireplace and whirlpool tub. Lovin' Oven guests have the option of having breakfast in the dining room in the company of other inn guests or delivered to the privacy of their guest room. A full breakfast is served daily in the dining room or, in the warmer months, al fresco on the large deck overlooking the river.
OUTDOOR AMENITIES: Include several quiet sitting areas along the river, a rustic log arbor with dining table and firepit, a picnic area with barbeque grill and firepit, and a canopied hot tub on the large backyard deck overlooking beautifully landscaped grounds. Guests at the Arbor House Inn are welcome to cast a line in the private waters of the South Fork just steps from Arbor House doors and are encouraged to get out and enjoy the many outdoor activities that are abundant in the surrounding area all year long.
OUR NEWEST ADDITION: The Cottage on the Creek -- separate, private accommodation perfect for guests requiring an extended stay. Featuring a large living and dining area, fully equipped kitchen and laundry, master bedroom with king bed and bath, second bedroom with queen bed and full bath directly across the hallway, satellite TV and WI-FI. The large deck perched directly on the river offers fantastic views and is perfect for early morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. As the Cottage is separate from the main Arbor House Inn, guest privileges do not include breakfast nor access to the hot tub. On-site access to the river and fishing privileges are included.
GIFT CERTIFICATE: For those guests wishing to share their bed-and-breakfast experience with family, friends or business associates, we recommend a gift certificate for a stay at the Arbor House Inn; available for specific rooms or for specific dollar amounts.
LOCATION: Near Milepost Marker 185 on US Highway 160, about a mile south of the junction of US 149 and 160. Look for the brown and green two-story down by the river.
