From staff to accommodations, exemplary in every way! Cuisine was amazing and the views, spectacular! Simply cannot say enough about this place, truly a hidden Gem! Innkeeper Jim, along with Emily, Bonnie and Sandy cater to your every need while Kona, the resident canine, oversees human operations. Love, love , love this place!

The Silver Lake Lodge is definitely the place to stay if you are doing anything near the area. I selfishly wish it could be a best kept secret. The breakfast is excellent. View is magnificent and Jim (innkeeper extraordinaire) makes the place feel like the very best home. They helped accommodate my father and I on our yearly trek by... More

Jim, Emily and Bonnie were excellent hosts! The suite is gorgeous and private! Scenery from the deck for dinner is breathtaking! Food, hospitality, scenery, activities all first class! This is the best place to stay in Idaho Springs for summer or winter activities! HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU SPEND SOME TIME HERE!!

Attention to detail with a great chef with a location that makes everywhere you look impressive. This is one of the Very Best B&B we have ever been to. Great food unbelievably beautiful location and first class service. A bit pricey But worth every penny. We'll be back -- love the bear room!

Better than expected from beginning to end. The room was clean, tasteful, comfortable, and had unbelievably gorgeous views. The host was incredibly generous and accommodating. We had the four course dinner and it was one of the best meals I've ever had. I can't say enough about our stay. I would love to go back!!

I had researched our road trip obsessively so I knew this place was going to be good. I just had no idea how good. Arriving in late May, there was still snow on the ground, but our journey up to the Lodge was straightforward. We arrived to a haven of warmth and comfort. Our room was the Timberline Retreat and...

From the detailed decoration of the rooms, to incredible views from every window, to the best free breakfast ever served, Silver Lake Lodge hits every mark. The lodge offers comfortable community space, including an enormous deck with spectacular mountain views. In addition to the breakfast, the lodge offers reasonably priced hiking lunches and gourmet four course dinners. We also got... More

From the moment we walked thru the door we knew that our stay was going to be fantastic. The lodge itself was very warm and inviting with sun streaming thru the windows. We had reserved one of the smaller rooms since the larger rooms were booked. Our son had to sleep on the floor, but with padding and blankets he... More

This idyllic bed and breakfast has the most amazing views, wonderful nearby hiking at St. Mary's Glacier, and the most knowledgeable inn keeper...Jim is fantastic! The food is great and we felt so at home. This place is truly an escape. Although there is in-room WiFi, you're very isolated so it isn't fast. Come here to get away!

The view, the room, the food, the staff, and the other guests were beyond WONDERFUL. When we arrived there was a note in our room wishing us a Happy 50th Anniversary and a dish of chocolate covered strawberries. We had the bacon wrapped fillets, the summer salad, cheddar mashed potatoes. vegetable, and mango cheesecake for dinner.....it was absolutely amazing!!! We... More
