After a four night stay, Bob Dougherty of the Palisade Tribune wrote some very nice things about the Wine Country Inn. In his weekly column, "A Visit with Uncle Bob," Dougherty wrote:
"My room had a king size bed with an extra thick mattress and box springs, so much so that I actually had to get (up) into bed, rather than just sit down on it. I slept straight through like a baby. That's of note because I usually find it takes a couple of nights to become comfortable in strange surroundings.
"On three of the nights, I went downtown to either the Red Rose Cafe to Inari's. But on the fourth night, I was glad the room was equipped with a microwave. AT this point, non of our restaurants are open on Mondays. The room also had a refrigerator/freezer, coffee pot, and an iron and ironing board. Add in a flat screen, high definition, plasma TV.
"And talking about TV, can you believe what the Broncos did that Sunday? The hotel has a wine tasting from 4:30 to 5:30 pm every day, and I watched the game in the comfortably furnished breakfast/tasting room with a small but boisterous contingent of Denver fans. After the uproar died down after the two-point conversion won the game, I said, 'Not artful, but we'll take the win.'"
Go Broncos! And look for Part 3 of the column tomorrow.
