We stayed here for a few nights recently and felt we had chosen the best possible accommodations in Estes Park. Rustic, antique, simple, friendly. Beautiful porch with comfortable rockers, sofas and other seating to sit and catch breezes. Great, young staff and wonderful owner.

Our family has been in the inn 2 times. We love it. It's relaxing, has beautiful views. We love the porch-it's a nice place to relax, read, etc. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It's old and rustic. A little shabby. The breakfast is excellent.-one of the things my kids (high school and college) anticipate.

The Baldpate has been the spot of my yearly solo vacation for the last 6 years. I happened upon it through a simple search of B&Bs in Estes Park, and could not have been more pleased. The large front deck is the perfect place to catch up on reading, writing, or simply relaxing. The rooms are cozy and comfortable, think... More

My family has been coming to dinner here for over 60 years. I can remember going to see the Key Room, and amazed at the number of keys. Today, they have a computer registry so visitors can look to see people who donated keys.. We have celebrated wedding anniversaries at the inn. Our children requested a special cake for our... More

This is a really interesting place to stay. Great, scenic location right on the twin sisters mountain. Great views. The food, especially the breakfasts are incredible. Of course, you will have to browse the key room. Great lobby area and fireplaces. The staff was very friendly. For those looking for modern convenience, this is an older inn so know what... More

Wonderful experience at the BaldPate Inn. Staff couldn't have made me feel more at home and were very accommodating. Room was appointed in a lovely manner, bed was comfortable, and whole place had a rustic charm that was lovely. Fun to nestle into a big overstuffed chair and nestle down with a good book or sit out on the front... More

This is a good place - good prices, and lots of charm. We've always been a little lukewarm on the college students that run the place (no local knowledge, lacking in customer service - but not awful), but we stayed this past weekend and no one could/would manage the fire in the common area. the entire top floor was filled...

My husband and I, along with his brother and his wife, spent two delightful nights at the Baldpate Inn. We stayed in the Valley View Cabin which was totally charming and rustically comfy. We loved hanging out in the main lodge with it's original wood interiors and stone fireplace, "key" room, library, restaurant, bird feeders.... The staff was very helpful... More

Love the feeling of going back in time at the Baldpate. In a time where everything is looking like Southern CA, with predictable nuetrals, the Baldpate stands out like a star. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner and attended one of the theater presentations - the light rain caused a delay, but the staff was hussling to dry our chairs, provide... More

Building and room were nice. Staff (college kids) were a bit obnoxious. A more interested in screwing around with each other than serving guests. Tried to sit on the communal porch to enjoy the evening and one them was having a loud and long conversation on their cell phone. Which would be annoying in any case but was particularly so... More
