Ever daydreamed about ditching the stressful 9-to-5 and escaping to the mountains to open a B&B? Then Blue Lake Ranch, just outside Durango, Colorado, might be just the heavenly hideaway you need to start living the good life.

The main ranch house and delightful casitas are scattered around the verdant 70-acre property, providing accommodations for 15 guests plus staff. The 13,000-foot La Plata Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to the ranch’s gorgeous Southwestern architecture, acclaimed gardens and 3-acre spring-fed lake (complete with trophy trout). Native piñon, juniper, sage and chamisa provide lush color and perfume the clear country air.

The main house and casitas are filled with bold Native American artifacts and textiles, antiques and art, setting a mood of relaxed elegance and comfort. Many of the furnishings are custom-made for the ranch, and a handcrafted aesthetic runs throughout the various buildings.

So if you’re one of those B&B daydreamers (and who could blame you?), Blue Lake Ranch is one pretty sweet dream. Click here for more details.
