There seems to be 1,000s of keys in the room; but that's not all -- they have little stories about them, who owned them, what they opened... from famous people and places (and even castles). It is a fun place to visit; but mostly to go next door to eat at the Bald Pate Inn; yum! a favorite of mine.... More

We had the soup & salad lunch at Baldpate Inn. Service was great and the food (all homemade and freshly prepared) was excellent. The Inn was very quaint and isolated, but was great fun to eat there. The old lodge, the key collection and the views back to Estes Park were great. We enjoyed our time there.

If you like history with rustic and class, go to the Baldpate Inn. I cannot exactly describe the experience but it was lovely. I went there for lunch and would go back everyday if I could!

I tried calling to see if we needed a reservation for dinner and got an answering machine suggesting getting on-line. The website said they were open until 8Pm & I was able to get a reservation for 7PM. We drove out there - about 10 miles - only to find out that they were closed. We walked in, asked if... More

We were here a year or two ago and enjoyed it. This visit was not so good. The place looks and smells (bathroom) a little dirty. We had to wait. Service was fair. Food was only fair. I don't think we'll go back.

The sheer volume of keys is little overwhelming! The ride up to the inn is not for the feint of heart (cliffs) but the view is absolutely gorgeous!

The innkeepers at our hotel told us we should check this place out. We were not disappointed! According to them, this building is a largely original structure from the early 1900s. Fur trappers apparently used to stay here back in the old days. It's a neat old place and we loved watching the numerous hummingbirds right outside the windows, which... More

Baldpate Inn is the real deal with history oozing out every corner. Large key collection includes incredible variety anywhere from the Titanic, to presidents's keys, that go so far back in history. Old photographs with famous visitors, great soup and salad bar with home-made pies and full bar and beautiful mountain views make this place a must-see on every visit... More

I was intrigued by what I read from other reviewers on TA, so knew I had to see the key collection for myself. The Inn sits off the road, and you have to look carefully for the sign. Down a dirt road, and there sits the almost 100 year old Inn. It has a lot of character, which I expected... More
