A charming, totally updated & renovated adobe, conveniently located on Hwy 160 right next to the new Mystic Biscuit restaurant, at the site of the former "Peace of Art Cafe" & "Organic Peddler". The adobe walls and double pane windows assure you a peaceful nights rest. Sits in front of our Hostel.

The space

A sweet adobe home all to yourself! In the wonderfully sweet and safe town of Del Norte! Totally renovated, has wireless internet and satellite T.V.! Master bedroom has a plush Queen size bed and there is a futon couch in the living room that folds out into a comfy full size bed. Full kitchen with stove, refrigerator, toaster oven and microwave. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, dishes you name it! The bathroom has a real porcelain tub with a shower. This cute little casita is located on the west edge of town on the same property as the sweet "Divide Riders Hostel" and the former "Organic Peddler" and "Peace of Art Cafe"! Also on the Continental Divide Trail. Walk out your door and enjoy some of the best food and shopping just a short stroll into town! The Casita is $125.00 per night. This price includes 2 adults and up to 2 children; there will be an added charge of $10.00 for each additional adult and $15 per pet, per night fee. The walls are thick adobe and the windows are double pane so peace and quiet are what you will experience!
This makes for a perfect central point for exploring the San Luis Valley and all its beauty and wonder! Right out your front door you could hike, bike and be within minutes of cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, bird watching, rock climbing and stargazing, or go enjoy the Rio Grande River, wilderness, Sand Dunes, Hot Springs, Railroads, Theater, Cafes, shopping and so much more! The property is just a beautiful piece of art that all seem to enjoy from the Cord-wood built cafe (which gives you a kaleidoscope feel from the inside) to the charming adobe store. A truly wonderful overall experience that you won't want to miss! We are always happy to answer all your questions so please just ask!

Great little house for accessing the Rio Grande National Forest. The house is right next to the Mystic Biscuit restaurant which is delicious and convenient for early morning coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is also a nice microbrewery just down the street which is walkable. The hosts couldn't be more helpful or friendly.

La Casita Bonita Inn is a nice little house that was perfect for our getaway from the Denver area. We did not meet KimAnna and Michael, but whenever we needed something their staff at the store (across the parking lot) were very helpful. For others unfamiliar with this area, but considering it, we enjoyed a day trip to Creede. We were surprised to find that Creede has a high quality repertory theatre. Though this was mostly a vacation, I had a business meeting in Alamosa, which is a short drive from Del Norte.

KimAnna and Michael answered all pre and post reservation questions quickly. When road construction delays made it impossible to arrive by 6pm, they ensured the key was still available for checkin. The exterior was bright and cheery. The interior was painted in warm colors enhanced by beautiful quilts, tapestries, hand painted grapevines, and a mix of live and faux plants. The furnishings were rustic and functional. Overall, the Casita was warm, welcoming, and a great home away from home. The ceiling fans and cross-ventilation made the casita comfortable in spite of summer heat and humidity. A gas heater was available if needed. Sue and I used the Casita as our home base while visiting family in the San Luis Valley. It was convenient to travel services and proved a great way to meet our dietary and rest requirements. The Organic Peddler, Peace of Art Cafe, and Hostel provide opportunities to meet a variety of people and interact, should you want. KimAnna and Michael were available, always ensuring our stay was going well without intruding. At the edge of Del Norte, the Casita also has great access to hiking trails on Lookout Mountain, across Highway 160. It was a great place to rest for a week.

We had an awesome time staying at La Casita Bonita. This is our second time staying at one of KimAnna and Michael's properties, and they're fantastic. Easy to arrive, great places to stay, easy to check out, and to top it off, they're great people. We will definitely come back when we're in southern Colorado.

The Casita in Del Norte, CO, is a wonderful adobe house. It is eclectically, yet beautifully, decorated - a hard thing to do. It is extremely well maintained. If you have ever wanted to experience life in an adobe home, this is a great place to try it out. We loved staying there. It is quiet and comfortable. The hosts are very responsive and very nice. There were a few minor glitches (internet/cable out, but quickly repaired), and if you encounter any, contact the hosts directly, since the very nice folks at the store & restaurant can get a bit overwhelmed if there is are lots of customers who need attention as well.

We live in the beautiful San Luis Valley in Colorado nestled in the Rocky Mountains. On a solar ranch. We are now retired but for 15 years we ran a small organic grocery/gift store and cafe here in Del Norte. We love building alternative artsy structures, animals,nature,the beautiful outdoors, beautiful architecture and interesting people. So we love hosting people in the Mermaid Cottage and our Hostel :-)
