This place was very cool. Every room is very different and the whole place just feels like a warm cozy mansion. The magic cabaret show w/ Dave Elsten was a blast. Highly recommended.

Wow! What a great long weekend we just had at the Lumber Baron. My wife and I came in on Friday the 16th from our skiing vacation, and wanted to go to the St. Patricks Day parade in Denver and experience the Casino & Mystery Dinner Theatre they have. The owners Walter and Julie made us feel like it was... More

When we first got married years ago, we stayed a night at the Lumber Baron Inn and attended the Lannie Garret concert in their ballroom. The concert was entertaining but the food left a lot to be desired. However, the room was beautiful and the service was great. It was a cherished memory. We recommended it to friends and always...

Let me first apologize for not meeting your expectation in communicating to your about our policies in regard to booking weekend dates into the future with or without vouchers. My attempt at giving you a quick, but short response simply fell short. Clearly I did such a poor job that it prompted you to spend a good deal of time... More

Attended last week show at the Lumber Baron Inn with my girlfriend and we laughed our heads off. The show is so unique and funny!! My girlfriend and I love murder mysteries and have seen all the others in town and this is by far the best. It is the only one, (that we have seen anyway) that uses live... More

Thanks Jim- we love to hear the positive feedback from folks that visit the Lumber Baron for our Comedy Mystery Dinners. I'll give our in-house chef your compliments on the flank steak- don't forget that we change our menu monthly to take advantage of in-season favorites and add some diversity for our return guests. Thanks again Jim! More

I attended a Lumber Baron Murder Mystery dinner experience and had the time of my life! The actors were funny and the service excellent! The food was good enough we that we were tempted to attend a 2nd performance of the same show! If you enjoy comedy good food and a spectacular building I'd recommend a trip here! Best of... More

We went on the opening night of the magic show and loved it! The first magician was very personable and made the entire audience feel as though we had been friends with not only him, but the rest of the audience for years. The second magician had a totally different style...which made it even better as it was two shows... More

I went to the Lumberbaron Inn for a Murder Mystery Dinner for a work party and had an awful time. The comedy was strictly sex-based comedy, very raunchy and crude. There was a lot of embarrasing audience participation that was very inappropriate. The host of the show embarrassed juvieniles, did a strip-tease type dance to several patrons. And besides all...

Apologies all around to you for having not been satisfied with our performance. We work closely with companies to set the expectations for our casino murder mystery dinners. Each company has the challenge of selecting an entertainment choice that meets everyone's needs and it's clear that our product did not match with you. As for the content, the public should... More

I stayed at the Lumber Baron Inn & Gardens for the first time last night and went to my second murder mystery dinner there and am already excited to go back! The owner bought this incredible house years ago and the renovations are incredible. First, the rooms. I stayed in the Valentine suite and it was completely amazing. It was... More

Thanks so much Elvis! Lots of folks come back again and again. We work very hard to make out place perfect for guests! As on premise innkeeper owners, it's particularly fun to know you had such a great time at the murder mystery dinner and in the Valentine Suite.

We arrived late and there was a murder mystery dinner scheduled at the Inn that night, so there were lots of people in the house and looking at us like "what are you doing?" probably because we had overnight bags with us. With the crowd downstairs my husband and I did not get to look around that night, but we... More

Thanks cblyon10, So glad you joined us for night's stay in the Honeymoon Suite. And you're totally right about the murder mystery dinner- it can be a little awkward if you're not part of these large 50-75 person dinner theater events on a night you stay. We have thought of this of course and that's why we set our check-in... More

Do not ever go to this establishment for anything! The owner is horrible and doesn't care about anything after you sign a contract with him. Doesn't even have enough flatware or glassware for all of the guests! Would have been nice to know before signing on and paying! The entire place is filthy and run down. When I walked through...

It's heartbreaking to see personal attacks on the internet especially when it's the first you've heard of the problem. We've been hosting weddings for 18 years and I've been working one-on-one with brides and grooms ever since. Some folks I connect with over a dozen times before the big day and am happy to do so.
