Our group of 18 friends traveled to Allenspark with a reservation for dinner at the Fawn Brook Inn. On this rainy summer day, the mountain inn with its comfortable old world dining room was a welcome setting. After being seated and giving our drink and dinner orders, we had time to see some of the other rooms adjacent to our... More

This place is well worth the drive(especially for a special occasion). The ambiance, the food, and the service are all outstanding! It's expensive, but you get what you pay for!

Our ten-mile hike ended iat the Allenspark Lodge. Exhausted, we dragged ourselves the 500 yards to Fawn Brook Inn and had a stunning dinner experience. You walk through a lush garden courtyard into a woody, softly lit entry with jazz playing quietly. The hostess greets you with a friendly and sympathetic smile and genuine interest in your tough hiking day.... More

We selected the chateaubriand special for two, which was seared and served table side to our preferred levels of doneness with gorgeous sauce bearnaise and delicious accompaniments of tiny squashes and asparagus. The meal included our choices of special appetizers (we both had the duck breast with figs and cantaloupe), a chilled rhubarb and raspberry soup, baby greens salad, and... More

We had the Beef Wellington for two; absolutely delicious. Comes with an appetizer, each can choose their own. Followed by soup, choice of two, and a salad. Following the entrée, a dessert, coffee & port. The ambiance of the Fawn Brook is superb. Hard to believe a 5-star restaurant exists in tiny Allenpark, Colorado, but it's true!

Just the fact that this gourmet spot is located in remote allenspark makes this a must-visit in and of itself! The ambience is fantastic. We really enjoyed the servers and owner made our experience special--they weren't pretentious at all. We had two kids with us--their first haute cuisine experience--and atmosphere was casual and enjoyable for them. They enjoyed that they... More

Amazing setting, beautiful gardens, incredibly cozy log cabin, and the food blew us away. Everything exceeded our expectations and we will be going back as soon as we can.

Tucked away in the little mountain hamlet of Allenspark is this five-star gourmet restaurant. Wow. Best Curry Lobster on the planet. Leisurely service, fine dining, don't be in a rush. Savor the gorgeous mountain garden and legion of hummingbirds in the summer. They grow their own herbs here--gluten-free sacher torte is amazing. Highly recommend!

A trip to the Fawn Brook is like stepping through a veil, into another time, another world. I can't recall another restaurant destination that delights in such a manner. Wonderful owners and staff. Highly recommended if you are seeking what would serve as a movie set in the Rocky Mountains. Ambiance beyond sublime.....
