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

I had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before, and this was the perfect introduction. The views are amazing, the food was exquisite and the people were so friendly. As a Colorado native, I'm used to the altitude, but it is important to remember to drink plenty of water and go easy on the wine. That can be quite... More

What I hated about this place was leaving! The food, people, the cozy atmosphere, and the view, is and was amazing! The cost is nothing for what you get, we feel like we under payed. They do so much making the meals making sure everyone is enjoying themselves and had everything they need. The one rule they don't tell you... More

A truly beautiful setting in the Rock Mountains at 10,000+ feet. We are experienced B & B travelers for have stayed in many over the past 40 years. The Silver Lake Lodge is at the top of our extensive list what with the views, fantastic service and superb meals. We walked up to the glacier - what a view! I... More

We stayed there one night as we were stopping on the way to another location. I used the great reviews as an indicator of how nice it is. They were right! Very beautiful. Jim and Emily were so nice and inviting. Our room wasn't quite ready so Emily gave us a tour and offered beverages and told us to keep... More

We expected to find a nice place when we booked a couple of nights at the Silver Lake Lodge. What we didn't expect is how wonderful this place would be. Nice place doesn't do it justice. Our stay was "WOW." The food, the rooms, the scenery, the hospitality, the hiking, did I mention "the food??". We will be back and... More

This was such a wonderful anniversary! Warm and cozy welcome with fresh roses and chocolate strawberries waiting for me in our room (part of one of their packages). Such a pleasure to speak with Jim, the owner, and play/lounge with Kona, his doggy. We stayed in the Silver Lake Suite which is a beautiful room that I had a hard... More

We expected a lot from the photos and reviews, but were astounded at how awesome this place was. Jim, the innkeeper, was helpful from the start when we called to sort out some things for our reservations and continued to be amazing during our stay. The rest of the staff was outstanding, friendly, and very helpful. Every detail from the... More

My wife and I just drove back today from our honeymoon and we are already looking forward to coming back! We stayed in the Timberline Retreat room, which offered 180-degree views of the surrounding mountains. The rustic decor was tastefully done, the queen bed was incredibly comfortable, and the large window and single-seating private deck provided an abundance of natural... More
