The Stone House Inn - Your Home Base for Discovery!
The Stone House Inn - in Crawford, Colorado - offers the finest and most central accommodations for your exploration of the north rim of the Black Canyon, Crawford State Park, the West Elk Wilderness, Needle Rock, and the ranching & organic farming paradise known as the North Fork Valley.
Whether your visit is focused on taking in the natural wonders of the area, or on savoring the bounty of our orchards, farms and wineries, we are well situated for your explorations. Maybe, instead, you are seeking a restful place to get away with your sweetheart for the weekend... or maybe you are planning a visit to family or friends... or possibly you are planning a hunting or fishing excursion? Regardless of your plans, we can offer you a room that is comfortable, clean and completely private and self-contained. Our goal is to provide a pleasing overnight experience and everything you will need in order to be well-rested for another great day of discovery in Colorado's North Fork Valley.
What to do in the North Fork Valley?
Try to contain your disbelief (and sense of vertigo) while peering into the incomprehensible chasm of the Black Canyon, take in the photogenic 700' high volcanic plug we call "Needle Rock", spend an afternoon or two exploring the organic farms, orchards and wineries of the North Fork Valley (Hotchkiss/Paonia area). Seek out the artistic output of the area - including North Rim Glass Studio just down the hill. Savor a farm-to-table dinner, or better yet, go straight to the source and gather the finest fruits of the earth and enjoy it fresh -right now! Notice the not so faint echo of our ranching history - the evidence is all around. Hunt or fish for your family's sustenance. Hike or explore our trails on horseback. Be still, observe and allow your being to be altered by this rare and wonderful place - you will be glad you did... you may find it hard to leave.
