This is a delightful old house which has been restored to a meticulous standard with many period furnishings. I arrived at Antonito after a stay at the Strater Hotel in Durango, a classic late 19th century hotel well known for its period character and so the River's Inn B&B immediately struck a familiar chord. April and Tim were delightful hosts, offering coffee and home made cakes when I arrived and they served an excellent breakfast the following morning.
I was there for the steam railway, like most visitors to the town I suspect, and enjoyed browsing the train books in the library during the evening. There are several historic buildings to explore in Antonito and Conejos. I was puzzled about why the Nuestra Senhora de Guadalupe church in Conejos is described as being the oldest in Colorado when it's clearly dated 1926 in the stained glass over the porch. Maybe I'd missed something. Much sadder is the decrepid state of the old stone railroad building (nothing to do with the steam railway) which the local historical society is trying to protect. There's a plate on one end saying it's maintained by the Union Pacific RR but they could clearly try much harder!

This hotel was very clean and the room was spacious, and very antique (built in 1931). There was a lot of bikers the night we stayed, so it was a bit noisy... not sure if that is the case all the time!
