We spent the 4th of July in the Top of the Rockies suite and are still in shock at how nice it was. The house is just charming and so well located for exploring in Leadville. It is a full suite with two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bath with every amenity that you would need for an extended stay.... More

We stayed in the Top o' the Rockies Suite in mid-March. It was perfect! With two older teen sons, the dormer room off the living area was great. The master bedroom was amazing with windows on three sides, a walk-in closet, and a sitting area - a nice quiet escape to read. And while the master doesn't have it's own... More

To stay in a historic house in a historic town was wonderful. The location could not be better... Owners very friendly and informative. Quiet street right by Main Street. Hope to stay there again!... You must rent bikes and do the Mineral Mine Trail Loop!

I've been coming to Leadville for a number of years skiing and hiking. We stayed in the Jesse McDonald suite for the weekend and were so impressed with the comfort and cleanliness. The owners, Jaime and Jo Ann were so cordial and helpful. They know a lot about the area and obviously love sharing info about Leadville. We loved the... More

We decided to book the flat located on the first floor when we went to Ski Cooper right after Christmas. The owners returned our call promptly and we booked just a few days in advance. The house is a walking distance from Leadville's main strip and there is ample street parking. We ended up getting in somewhat late and the... More

We stayed at the Governor's Mansion for two nights over the Fourth of July weekend so we could hike on Mt. Elbert. Since there were three of us, we opted for the Top of the Rockies suite. You can read about the history of the house and the town at their web site, so I won't go into the details.... More

We spent two nights in this wonderful guest house in this fabulous town. Jo and Jaime Stuever made us very welcome, clearly love this house, have restored it superbly and are full of information about its fascinating history. There are two self-contained apartments, each with its own entrance and the owners have the ground floor. They live their own busy... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Different than an inn, historic hotel or B&B, the accommodations at The Governor's Mansion offer our guests a unique lodging experience. Our suites take the condo concept back to the Victorian era without sacrificing modern conveniences. The Governor's Mansion was once the home of former Governor Jesse McDonald and is centrally located in Leadville's National Historic Landmark District. You'll be surrounded by the highest mountains in the Colorado Rockies where majestic scenery blends with a lively history. ... more   less
