The Paradox Valley Inn is definitely out of the way, but that is the beauty of it - away from it all. We stayed in the Escondido suite, very comfortable, with a great view of the Lone Cone, near Norwood, CO, and the San Miguel Mtns. near Telluride. Around the back, the LaSal Mtns. near Moab UT.
Sitting out on the patio, it was so quiet - unbelievably quiet. We had one of the dinners available from Marti and Greg, the housekeepers, which they prepare at their home and deliver to you at the inn - it was great, with a fresh salad from their garden.
We had a wonderful 3-night stay. Keep in mind that the nearest restaurants & towns are at least 25 -40 miles away, but the dinners are big enough to get you through or even dinner the next night, and are a real bargain at $20/person. The kitchen facilities are fine for bringing your own food.
I recommend reading a couple of books about the history of the area - "One Man's West" by David Lavender, and "The Hell That Was Paradox" by Howard E. Greager. Fascinating reading.
And of course, the real reason you go there is to explore. There are lots of places to hike, mtn bike, explore, etc. The Dolores River Canyon above and below the valley is beautiful. You can hike up the canyon from Bedrock, or drive down the canyon to the confluence with the San Miguel River.
We will be going back soon.
