Some 13 years ago, Paul and Joanne built their dream house and B and B and have been busy ever since. The live on the edge of a crater view of the badlands.. The scene changes daily as the sun travels over the sky. When full to capacity, they can easily house 23 people. Their home is a retreat for weary travelers, a gathering place for a weekend of quilting or knitting or conferences. Breakfast and dinner are served and I understand lunch can also be available.
A little off the beaten path, but well worth the trip. Eagle Ridge Lodge is where you can meet other travelers and share stories and laughs. It was a beautiful change for us since we usually are rushing to get West. Paul told us at breakfast, which was a very tasty, fluffy, baked French toast with homemade caramel syrup, a slice of ham and fresh pineapple and blueberries, that originally the land they built on was an Indian ceremonial ground. It was not just us...everyone seems to have immediate calm when they stepped upon this land. It wasn't until breakfast that someone at our table mentioned that there are no televisions in the B&B. Honestly had not even missed them at all.
