The beautiful scenery on the drive up the mountain is breath taking. Once you make it to the Lodge, get ready for true hospitality from Jim. Any food he serves is amazing and you can taste the care he puts into each gourmet meal he prepares. No matter where you are in the lodge you can see all the beauty... More

This was the first time that I have ever been to Colorado and my (now) Fiance's second time. We literally went out on a whim and saw The Silver Lake Lodge here on Trip Advisor and decided to stay here. We were a little disappointed, in the fact that we only stayed 2 of the 3 nights here instead of... More

We came across this lodge when looking for a getaway in the mountains to celebrate a special birthday. What an extraordinary place! From the moment we stepped into the lodge, the experience was far more than we expected--from the beautifully appointed guest rooms with private baths, to the luxurious and inviting living areas, huge DVD library, fireplaces, and the gracious...

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
