Echo Lake Lodge

Great view but it's Colorado. Mt Evans Road closed. NO CLOSED SIGN. so many people were upset. Lodge is nice. Do not buy fishing license if this is where you plan to fish .

Stopped here for some lunch and so pleased we did!! Decent menu, friendly staff and food was actually really good. The view across the lake is breathtaking, you also get to see hummingbirds at the feeders near the windows which was a first for me. A great place to relax, enjoy the food and take in the views, loved it!!

My wife and i decided to go to Colorado for our anniversary. It was a great idea because of its difference in the location and attractions. While there we noticed the snow capped mountains and wanted to head in there direction. We found mount evans and decided that was it. We followed google maps through Idaho springs and up mount...

Visited Denver, Co. Traveled to Mt. Evans for one day of our weekend in Denver. No worries, since Echo Lake Lodge was just fine! Had a wonderful lunch here along with some Colorado Native. Way good beer! Reminds me of Octoberfest indeed, the beer that is. Wonderful place to stop and rest and view Echo Lake. Awesome scenery if you... More

My wife and I ate lunch. My wife really enjoyed her hamburger. Very filling. I liked the flavor of the meat. I had the Mac n cheese fried bites and cornbread. I wasnt aware they would have diced jalapeños in them. Too spicy for me. Good flavor though. Would have enjoyed more without them. Cornbread served lukewarm. Good flavor. Two... More

Learn about the history of the lodge by talking to the man at the bar. He has a slide show of pictures and history of the area don't miss it he is a very nice guy. The lodge looks the same except the main fireplace is covered up by trinkets that's why I didn't give it a 5 rating. Just... More

The service at Echo Lake Lodge was a bit confused and took a little longer than I thought it should. (remember, our meal was included as part of the tour package) The Bison Chili was nice, thought I prefer a little more heat to my chili. Now the pie.. The best crust I have ever had, surrounding a delicious Coconut... More

The pies are just delicious! And, there so much more to look once inside. This is located right next to Echo Lake and to the left of the lodge, you'll find the entrance to go to Mt. Evans.

Went on vacation back in 2011 to Colorado and tried Echo Lake Lodge Restaurant. Back then I had the Patty Melt and my boyfriend had the Reuben Sandwich. I remember mine being pretty good and I tried my boyfriends Reuben and it was a lot better. This past Memorial Day weekend we went back to Colorado and we both decided... More

The atmosphere here really makes you feel the mountain experience. This log built lodge creates a wonderful atmosphere and a great place to jump out of the rain coming back or going to the Mt. Evans summit. I did try the food and was pleasantly surprised. Their burgers are great! They have a full bar too, and while drinks are... More
