The Arbor House Inn Bed & Breakfast is beautifully located on the banks of the South Fork of the Rio Grande River in the southern Colorado Rocky Mountains. Complete with cliffside views and almost a quarter mile of private river, it offers the discriminating traveler the amenities of a fine hotel with the warmth and comfort of a private mountain home. Outdoor amenities include a canopied hot tub on the back deck overlooking the river, a vine-covered log arbor, three picnic/sitting areas with fire pits, dining/serving tables and barbeque grill. Private fishing is available on site as well. Numerous outdoor activities are available locally throughout the year such as golfing, rafting, fishing, horseback riding, ATVing, hiking, biking, snowmobiling, downhill and cross-country skiing. In nearby towns guests can take in an inspiring performance at the Creede Repertory theatre or enjoy a theraputic soak in the Pagosa Hot Springs. Each of the inn’s five guestrooms has its own private bath, unique decor, and king, queen or twin beds. All guestrooms have streaming TV, wireless internet, stocked mini refrigerator, microwave, coffee/tea service, hairdryer, robes, and complimentary chocolates. The honeymoon suite also offers a candelabra fireplace, whirlpool tub for two, and the option of breakfast delivered to the guestroom. Breakfast is served daily in the dining room or al fresco on the deck. (Special Covid restrictions honored if requested.) On the property adjacent to the inn is the Cottage on the Creek vacation rental which sleeps four and has all the comforts and amenities of a private home. Please see our website for Cottage details. The Arbor House Inn is also a perfect destination for a romantic elopement or an intimate, mountain wedding with a few of your favorite guests. Check the website for elopement options and other special packages offered throughout the year. Gift certificates available.

A full gourmet breakfast is served daily with the theme rotating between sweet and savory. The star of the show might be sweet potato pancakes or stuffed French toast topped with seasonal fresh fruit and whipped cream. One might find savory breakfast sandwiches of bacon, basil, tomato and avocado on toasted French bread; parfaits of house-made soft granola, Greek yogurt, blueberries, strawberries, and chopped pecans; creamy, three-cheese scrambled eggs made with fresh eggs from our own Arbor House Inn chickens and seasoned with just-picked herbs from the greenhouse. Piping-hot coffee, a selection of teas and a variety of fruit juices are always on hand to round out the show. Special diets are accommodated as closely as possible when given prior notice.
