Francisco Fort Museum

The Francisco Fort museum is the last standing original adobe fort building in the state of Colorado. Established by Colonel John Francisco as a trading post in 1862, this adobe structure now houses the heirlooms of Huerfano County, including important collections of Native American, Spanish settler, and pioneer artifacts. The Museum is open for tours Tuesday through Saturday from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Local Golf Courses

Our property has 360 views of the Cuchara Valley and the pristine mountain tops that surround us. Why not spend your day on the course soaking in the spectacular views. After 8 years, we are excited by the news that our local mountain course, one of the finest in Colorado, is now re-opening. While you are enjoying our little corner of heaven, make yourself a tee time to enjoy a round with friends, finishing your day by relaxing on the newly renovated club-house deck.

Cultural Attractions

Perfectly situated on the Highway of Legends, the La Veta Creative District, certified as an official Creative District in November 2021, is the heart of arts and cultural activity in Spanish Peaks Country. Since traders began using Francisco Fort as a trade source for Denver, this area has attracted creators, musicians, and artists of all types. The cultural opportunities are endless with concerts, performing arts, locally owned storefronts and art galleries to explore.

Outdoor Adventures

Whether you are into hiking, biking, hunting, fishing or maybe bird watching and admiring local wildlife, there are ample opportunities for the outdoor adventurer. While you’re staying with us, be sure to get out and explore the natural wonders of the area and learn why this corner of Colorado is where the legends roam.
