To our knowledge, the property has been run on and off as a B & B for a number of years.  It was first known as Cimarron House, more recently it was called the Elk Ridge Lodge, which also explains the large elk in our front courtyard.  The property has always been very well-maintained and we have freshened it up and with some light renovations to the property and will be continuously working to enhance the guest experience.

The Blue Dragonfly Inn is a unique B&B where you won't find four poster beds, lace doilies, or tea and crumpets.  You will, however, experience all of the creature comforts of home including snuggling in comfortable beds and pillows, waking up to the scent of home cooked breakfasts, and enjoying the hospitality of your hosts.

inn policies

Blue Dragonfly Inn is a non-smoking property.  There is no smoking allowed anywhere at any time on our property for the comfort of all our guests.

We do not allow pets.

The inn is not suitable for children under 12 years of age

In the interest of those who have cat allergies:  we do have house cats.  They are not allowed in guest rooms and do not have free range of the house while guests are here.  The furnace system is separate for the guest side of the house.  However, the furnace system for the commons area is the same for the innkeepers side where the cats stay.  We do our best to eliminate cat evidence and use the best filters possible, but you may want to reconsider or take precautions if you are highly sensitive to cat dander.

Feel free to wander all over our property but do watch out for paddle cactus if you veer off the track.  You may also walk through the neighborhood and explore, just please be respectful of no trespassing signs.

We want all of our guests to feel at home when they stay with us.  Do not hesitate to tell us how we can make your stay more enjoyable or comfortable.
