    : Unfortunately, yes, Jody Stewert passed away in December. Her husband Mike Patterson is the owner, and current caretakers are John and Roxie Bowden. Cerro Gordo is not a bed and breakfast. The bunkhouse and the Belshaw House are available to rent, and there are cooking facilities for you to cook your own meals. I am friends with Mike, and with the Bowden's. I don't have their phone number right with me, as I am vacationing in Mammoth, but can get back to you with it when I get home in a few days.
    : The most direct route to Cerro Gordo is the Yellow Grade road from Keeler. For a more adventuresom real 4x4 route, want can start at Swansea and go up the Swansea Grade.

    : It is with deep sadness to hear that Jody Stewart has passed away.
    : I met Jody & Mike in 199 when I visited Cerro Gordo. She said her & Mike was trying to establish a bed & breakfast. They were doing some remodeling at the time. I found her very charming and interesting. Really enjoyed Cerro Gordo.
    : Thank you very much for responding to my information.

Even if you are just coming up for the day to visit, it's a nice idea to call ahead so they can be expecting you. The town is open from 9- 3 for tours at a cost of $5 a person. The money goes to towards up keep and continued restoration efforts on the town.
