Enjoy fabulous cuisine made from regionally raised meats and produce at the award-winning Argentine Grille without leaving the building. Relax, surf the net, or read a book by a roaring fire in the Great Room. Each room has satellite TV, comfortable quilts, and unique rustic charm. This place is the definition of a true boutique hotel and is perfect for those looking to get away from it all. The Rico Hotel and Mountain Lodge is one of those rare places with the privacy of a hotel but the quaintness and quirkiness of a B&B.
