Cuchara inn fell into major disrepair until Eddy and Barbara Hall from Lamar, Colorado bought it and began its renovation. In their four years as the inn’s keepers, half of the 45 guest rooms and suites were updated with new flooring, bathrooms, paint and decor.
In December of 2015, Scott and Dani Lynch bought the inn and have continued in Barb and Eddy’s footsteps. They have focused on the lobby area, taking down the dividing walls to create a large, open “Great Room” with a rustic ski lodge feel.
The incredible new grand staircase, designed and built from local forests by local artisan Steve Palmer, stops all newcomers in their tracks! (We are actually the only hotel in America with a functioning tree swing!)
