I took my wife to The Silver Lake Lodge this past weekend for her birthday. It was amazing! In fact, it was so good, we consider it one the best places we have ever stayed (in the world)! Our host, Jim, was incredible. He is a super guy, wonderful chef and incredibly knowledgeable about the area. The Lodge is gorgeous.... More

The Silver Lake Lodge is a hidden gem. It's not a hotel, nor just another B&B, it's a full blown experience. The accommodations and service combine for one of the best times you'll ever have on the Front Range of Colorado. Jim is one of the greatest people you'll ever meet, and that is immediately obvious the moment you set... More

I have always wanted to do a bed and breakfast so for my big 3-0 birthday my husband and I decided to do a little "staycation" and go to the mountains for a B&B. I am soooo glad that I stumbled upon the Silver Lake Lodge on one of those deal aggregate sites, I was not disappointed. We ended up... More

The Silver Lake Lodge is an outstanding B&B with beautiful mountain top views from the large picture windows. The rooms, as well as the shared public areas, of the B&B were very uniquely and tastefully decorated ~ and impeccably clean. The host Jim was delightful . . . . friendly, with a subtle sense of humor, and more than willing... More

This was our first time to The Silver Lake Lodge and I doubt it will be our last! We went in mid January during the MLK weekend, booked about a week ahead to avoid not getting a room. Luckily we spent our two night stay with about half occupancy, which only added to our experience. Jim and Bonnie were amazing... More

The Silver Lake Lodge was fantastic. There's plenty of outdoor space to explore in the snow (in December anyway) and the Lodge itself is wonderfully cozy. It's remote and romantic and I cannot say enough about Jim's superb hospitality.

This place was wonderful! Didn't realize that it is the highest B&B in north America at 10, 500 ft above sea level, so we ended up having Jim tow us the last 1/2 mile! We literally were snowed in for the 3 days we were there....and we LOVED it! Beautiful scenery, AMAZING food, fun games, lots of books, hot cocoa,... More

This was our second stay at Silver Lake Lodge and it seemed impossible to top the last trip in May, but this incredibly did! Just like old friends, Jim welcomed my husband and I back and got us immediately settled in. We stayed in the same room as last time - Timberline Retreat - and it looked exactly as if... More

My wife and I just returned from our second stay at The Silver Lake Lodge In Idaho Springs, CO and it again surpassed my high expectations! Again the food was fantastic including Christmas dinner with 8 new friends staying there (the lodge only has 7 rooms so there is never a crowd. The main problem with the cuisine is that... More

My Wife and I just spent our 2nd Anniversary at the Silver Lake Lodge, just 15 minutes North of Idaho Springs at the foot of St. Mary's Glacier. It is less than a 1 hour drive from our home in downtown Denver. It is a truly remarkable place. Comfortable, warm, clean, beautifully appointed and well cared for. The outside views... More
