In the heart of the Southwest a hidden treasure awaits you!  The Rio Grande Southern Hotel and Restaurant, in current operation in Dolores, Colorado, is available to a new owner passionate about building a future enterprise.  Surrounded by the San Juan and La Plata Mountains, Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, and the high deserts of Canyonlands, Dolores provides a gateway to many outdoor recreational and educational adventures.
In the path of the Dominguez-Escalante Expedition of 1776 and the laying of the Rio Grande Southern Railroad in 1891, Dolores was established in 1893.  The Rio Grande Southern Hotel was erected to serve railroad sojourners seeking rest on their journey from Durango to Ridgway.  Dolores is home to the iconic Galloping Goose No. 5, which transported passengers, mail, and freight along the RGS from 1931 to 1951.   The Goose continues to operate excursions on mountain railroads in Colorado and New Mexico and attracts visitors from around the world to Dolores.
The Rio Grande Southern Hotel is on the National Register and it sits adjacent to the replica of the original Dolores Depot in a town waiting to resurrect its past for a prosperous and exciting future.  


The listing price is $550,000.  For more information please email Susie: or call at  (682) 227-5559
