We had a large group gathering this summer and it was great for us. We used the two lodges and the Barn and we were very comfortable. We were able to gather as a whole group in either of the lodges for meals and for just hanging out. The grounds were beautiful with grasses and flowers, the pond ( which... More

I had hoped to book a cabin here but was too late so booked a room in the lodge. We were the only people in the lodge so it was like having a great big cabin to ourselves. This was the best two days of our 6 day road trip around Colorado by far. The peace, quiet and tranquility were... More

An easy drive to Aspen or to Salida, but a completely remote, rustic, scenic location. I will be making this my new home away from home. Great service, adorably rustic cabins, clean, quiet and cozy. Couldn't have asked for a better place to decompress.

Rustic Cabins in a awesome winter location. Great snowshoeing and the Elk Cabin is like a home away from home. This cabin has extra amenities like a dishwasher and Satellite TV. It's very comfortable with beautiful views of Rinker Peak off the back deck.

We stayed in the cinnamon bear cabin which invitied us with a warm and cozy feeling. We went towards the end of January to experience my first time seeing snow and I have to say... More

My wife and I came up to Twin Lakes on whim and stayed in the Bed and Breakfast. We had a great stay! Scott was welcoming and very helpful! We were able to rent snow shoes and Scott told us about a beautiful trail to go on. We are also gluten-free and they catered to our needs. They even let... More

Laura & Scott are incredibly friendly and accommodating and make the Mount Elbert Lodge feel like a home away from home. Their greeting is so warm and friendly,it is more like coming to visit old friends than staying at an inn. The lodge is cozy and comfortable. My winter stay was incredibly quiet (with Independence Pass closed, I heard only... More

In late October we rented "Waterwheel" for a night. The cabin is spacious and comfortable, nestled in the aspens. We relaxed next to the stream that flows behind the cabin. The waterwheel that once supplied power is still there. We hated to leave and can't wait to return to gorgeous Twin Lakes!

We stayed three nights in Tall Pines cabin. The cabin was rustic but suited us well. It was well-located, convenient to Independence Pass, Leadville, and Buena Vista. We even visited the ghost town of St. Elmo's during our time there. The bathroom in Tall Pines is tiny.

This was our second stay at Mt Elbert Lodge and Cabins. We stayed in the Lodge the first time (early Sept) and then in "The Barn" the second (early Oct). We will be back again that is for sure. Love the setting and love the rustic charm. The cabin had everything you would need and plus some. Great place!! If... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We began as a base camp for miners back in the heyday of Colorado's mining boom and today we are a quiet get-away nestled in National Forest at the base of Colorado's highest peak. Step out of today's hectic world into a quieter time at Mt. Elbert Lodge. We have no TVs, radios or phones in our comfortable housekeeping cabins; we do have a front row seat to the Colorado Rockies. ... more   less
