About Gina Marcell
Your Rocky Mountain lodge hosts are Gina and D’Arcy Marcell, are transplants from the Pacific Northwest. Offering Colorado mountain lodging comes naturally to Gina through her background in hospitality and 20 years in customer service for the Airline and Travel Industry. Gina is a true entrepreneur who enjoys people. She owned her own businesses while raising three sons. She enjoys cooking, entertaining, and sharing her knowledge of animals, especially of goats. Gina became a passionate lover of goats after adopting some orphaned baby goats. That experience grew into a hobby of rescuing unwanted goats, rehabilitating, and then re-homing them as pets. Gina has mentored teens in all aspects of goat husbandry and will continue to educate others to the benefits of goat ownership. Gina enjoys making goat cheese and uses fresh goat milk, goat cheese, and fresh eggs in the wonderful meals and snacks she serves to guests.
Gina Marcell purchased this Lodge in 2010
Why Gina Marcell chose Salida
WE LOVE THE SUNNY DAYS AND MOUNTAIN AIR!
What makes this Lodge unique
The Marcells have a small herd of dairy goats and share their love of these entertaining creatures with B&B guests and the community at large. After realizing that the wet climate in the Pacific Northwest was not conducive to healthy goats, the Marcells began to look for a dry climate where they could own an Inn and also where their goats would thrive. The Mountain Goat Lodge was the perfect solution! Additionally, the Marcells brought their flock of special Americauna laying hens from the Northwest. These special hens lay a light green egg.

I rented the whole house for my boyfriend’s 30th birthday with 18 of our closest friends and we had the best time! This place is very pet friendly, we had 5 well behaved dogs with us and there was still plenty of room in the house. The house and property is absolutely beautiful! The views are unreal from just about every room in the house. The goats, lamas and chickens are also so entertaining to watch and fun be around. The owners Gina and D'Arcy were such wonderful hosts! They made us latte's every morning, which were so delicious and creamy. The bedrooms were great—large and each equipped with their own bathroom, mini fridge and other mics. amenities. It is extremely close to Monarch Mountain. During the day some of us went skiing, some went snowmobiling and some fishing. We didn't rent the lodge as a b&b and brought our own supplies for cooking, partly because we were such a large group-- which goes to show how accommodating and flexible Gina really is with her guests. We will definitely be back again both as a large group and just with my boyfriend for a lovely getaway.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review us Bizy! I enjoyed meeting you and your friends at the bonfire, and must say it was wonderful having a houseful of 30 yr olds that were so cool and polite!! (Kudos to your parents.) We hope to host you again in the near future! Gina M., Owner
