The Wisehart Springs Inn is a family owned business run by proprietors Art and Erin. It is located on 40 acres in the North Fork Valley in Paonia, Colorado. Natural springs run on the property which contribute to its beauty. The valley is home to organic growers, ranchers and wine-makers. Our vision is to provide a stunning setting in which explore the valley and its many wonderful attributes.

Art and Erin have given a labor of love and artistry to share the fruits of the valley with you. There are many opportunities to enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, wine tasting, local produce, horseback riding, music, fishing, hunting, breweries and farm to table restaurants. They are within a short drive or walk away from the Inn. Consider The Wisehart Springs Inn if you are looking for Paonia lodging for your family vacation, getaway or retreat. With majestic views and an lofty great room, it is perfect for weddings and events.

About the property, Art says “This is a genuine place with an extraordinary degree of energy and spirit. This is a one-of-a-kind handmade structure through and through. Starting with the people who originally built it in 1962, we offer you a peaceful and harmonizing stay in this work of art.”
