A Relaxing B&B Retreat just outside of Salida, CO 

Have you hugged a goat today?

A Cozy Retreat Nestled Among Majestic Mountains

The Mountain Goat Lodge is set within 20 acres of rolling pastures at the foot of the famous Sawatch Mountain Range. Our resident goats roam the meadows, providing us with the milk, cheese, and yogurt for our tasty homecooked breakfasts and our cheese-making classes. 
We are located in central Colorado in pristine wilderness, yet just 6 miles from the historic town of Salida. Each of our snug rooms has its own private balcony with breathtaking mountain views. 
Such a great place! Will definitely stay here again. On a whim, I decided to try 2 nights in one of the retro campers and loved it. It was certainly different from a typical hotel room but was the perfect 'home away from home'. The camper had plenty of space and all of the needed amenities. The awning covered patio was the perfect place to relax and take in the outdoors. Gina was a fantastic host, taking time out to give me a tour and always willing to talk for a bit. The lodge was beautiful, the coffee was delicious and the breakfast looked fantastic. The vibe was very friendly, welcoming and relaxed. There were several dogs around (owner and guest) which contributed to the comfortable feeling. And goats!!!!! This is a real working goat farm - breeding and raising goats, and they are an integral part of the Lodge. They are friendly and love a good scratching. Add in some chickens/roosters and a lama for good measure and you really have a special place to visit. I look forward to staying here again.
Great Stay
My partner found Mt Goat Lodge when she searched for "dog friendly B&B." It was well rated and near Salida, so it seemed perfect. When we showed up, it was even better. The communication before check-in was thorough and got us excited about our stay. The innkeepers were friendly, welcoming, and funny. They also responded quickly when our electronic door lock broke. The room was clean and comfortable and spacious, and our dog was perfectly at home. The goats were fun to watch and play with, and the included breakfast was delicious. The hot tub was also nice after a long and busy day. The room got a little warm (east-facing, so got sun from dawn until mid-afternoon) but we had windows to open and a swamp cooler.
Comfortable and Unique
The B&B was lovely. Hosts were delightful (especially Mateo the 4 month old goat whose personality is MUCH bigger than he is). Food was great! Loved having fresh eggs and goat cheese, yogurt and milk straight from the working farm. Clean, pleasant. I will definitely return!
A long weekend in Salida/Mt. Princeton
This was our second visit to this BnB and likely will not be our last! We had actually planned a trip to Alma (about 30 miles north) to hike in that area, but we were stood up by an Airbnb host. We are so grateful to the Mountain Goat Lodge for accommodating me, my husband, and our dog at the very last minute and giving us a great rate on our room. Don’t shy away from this place if you’re like me and prefer privacy and avoid BnBs. The owners are busy keeping up with the property and give their guests plenty of space and privacy. We left before dawn on our first morning to tackle one of the many gorgeous hiking trails in the area, so we were only able to enjoy the lodge’s amazing breakfast on our second morning. They are very considerate about food allergies and took extra care to accommodate my peanut allergy. Just make sure to let them know in advance because you won’t want to miss out on the delicious food. All of the goats and other animals on the property are clearly so well-loved and cared for. The goats are adorable and love people. The resident dog is a sweetheart, too. Finally, our room was very nice clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable. I’ll bet there isn’t a single room without a gorgeous view of the mountains.
Pet-friendly and charming lodge
We stayed in a tipi that is next to the lodge. We used lodge facilities including the hot tub and the lobby. Hot tub in the evening was great after a busy day. The host very welcoming and friendly. Shared story about her goats
Great location and views
Mountain Goat Lodge is a wonderful destination in the Salida area. The views are as beautiful as the wonderful host Gina. Staying overnight in their tipi was a GREAT choice for us, traveling on a budget and willing to try *almost* anything. This is Colorado and the temperatures do drop quite a bit at night, but having been prepared with plenty of warm bedding and warm clothes, we stayed comfy cozy the whole night. Gina prepared a delicious breakfast for us, and as their saying goes, "When in Rome," we enjoyed a yogurt parfait and latte made from their own goats' milk along with fresh eggs laid by their hens. We loved sitting down to talk with Gina, meeting other guests who also enjoy this home-away-from-home, and meeting their ADORABLE goats! We highly recommend this location and look forward to visiting again!
Wonderful destination
