Welcome to Arbor House Inn Bed & Breakfast on the River in South Fork CO

This award-winning, five-bedroom bed and breakfast inn in beautiful Southern Colorado offers mountain elegance, unparalleled service and delicious gourmet breakfasts. Whether it’s a mountain elopement, anniversary or birthday celebration, a getaway with friends or a quick pass through, we are delighted to share a bit of Colorado hospitality and to provide an exceptional travel experience for each and every guest.

Tucked in the shadow of massive, stone cliffs, this riverfront bed & breakfast on three acres with over 400 feet of accessible river bids its guests to kick back, relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Take in the magnificent mountain views in the great outdoors over a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine. Favorite spots include the backyard party deck with canopied hot tub, benches beneath a rustic log arbor, any of three fire pits, and several secluded riverside sitting areas.

Our newest addition to the Arbor House Inn is the Cottage on the Creek Vacation Rental. Adjacent to the main inn property and sharing the same beautiful riverside setting, it is a separate guesthouse rental and offers all the comforts of home– the ideal choice for guests seeking a private, extended-stay accommodation.

With over 255 miles of trails in the Rio Grande National Forest, the entire area is truly an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Seventeen miles of gold medal waters on the Rio Grande, numerous lakes and smaller streams make it a fly fisherman’s dream come true. Just 18 miles up Wolf Creek pass, boasting the most snow in Colorado, is Wolf Creek Ski Area featuring fabulous snowboarding, downhill and cross-country skiing. And for the ultimate in relaxation, the “hot pots” of Pagosa Hot Springs, just over Wolf Creek Pass, offers more than 23 natural hot springs pools of varying temperatures, just the thing for soaking any lingering cares away.  

After a day enjoying all that the great outdoors has to offer, guests can come on back to the Arbor House Inn and relax around the fireplace in the comfortable common area or in the vaulted dining room with 180-degree views of the river, cliffs, landscaped grounds and surrounding forests. The main centerpiece of the inn, the dining room features large, two-story windows—perfect for catching a glimpse of local wildlife meandering through on their way to or from the river. Breakfast is served daily in the dining room or al fresco on the deck in our warmer months. Light refreshments are available on the buffet in the afternoon and evening.
