The Paradox Valley Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Paradox B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 June 2015

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.

Room Tip: Wifi available near office. But you don't go to Paradox to use w-fi. You go for solitude and n...

The joy of nature is easily experienced at Paradox Valley Inn. The clean suite, comfortable and relaxing, provided a means to relax and enjoy the fabulous vistas. In the early evening the sun lights up the red rocks. Look in any direction to enjoy the splendor of nature. A delifghtful place!

Room Tip: Wifi can be accessed on the office verandah and worked great. Bring fresh food items.

having never seen mountains besides photos and a few in the distance while driving, i was floored at the pure magnitude. Their size and awesomeness is inspiring and you dont have to take your eyes off them i stayed in lago vista and the veiws were spectacular. the living/dining area has a wall of window that provides the most breathtaking panorama. from one morning to the next you are saturated with pefect vistas in every direction. i highly recommend this location for every vacation. just beautiful and private and perfect!!!!

Felt like I was in the 1800s, a movie set. Off grid & quiet but so sunny the solar panels provided all the electricity I needed. I did conserve though so it wouldn't go down. A meditation Kiva! Shower & everything worked. Glad for privacy and happy to have the place to ourselves.

I had many relatives who have booked for many nights at this bed and breakfast. The owner does not live in the valley but about a hundred miles away. There is no one that stays here just someone who comes and cleans. The breakfast is cheap dehydrated junk and preserved items from big box stores. No communication between the owner and the housekeeper leaves getting keys to rooms a challenge, as they are hidden and they forget to tell you where to look. They forgot they were booked, tried to force them into a more expensive room. They were not apologetic even after it was clear they were in the wrong. Not an enjoyable stay for them, and far overpriced.

If you decide to stay here, bring your own food.. Don't have any false expectations. This is more like a "rent-a-cabin" than a bed and breakfast.
