Established in 1997
We have enjoyed 15 years of meeting and visiting with guest from all over the world. We retired from corporate life and decided to build a small bed and breakfast in this most wonderful, peaceful and talented community. We have watched many artists move to La Veta which bring in students from everywhere in the world. This area is the best kept secret in Colorado with a rich Native American and Settler history which can be seen in our Francisco Fort Museum. The amazing beauty of this valley brings many hikers to climb the Spanish Peaks and view our "Dike Walls".
For the comfort and enjoyment of guests the Inn has a great room with a see-through fireplace, huge open beams and a full wall of windows with views of the Spanish Peaks opening to a covered patio. The Private library has plenty of reading materials, games and videos. Inn has High Speed Wireless Internet Access.
