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 .

Poor service, untrained servers behaving as though they were overwhelmed when they simply were not at full capacity and in reality they were not swamped at all. Mediocre food. Underwhelming experience in general. We went because we were super hungry after our backpacking trip, and this was our big 'reward' at the end of our journey, Literally walking up to... More

We have always enjoyed coming to this historic inn. The setting is great - at the base of the road to 14,265 feet Mt. Evans and next to beautiful Echo Lake. Unfortunately the road to Mt. Evans above the lake is closed - however it should be opening again at the end of July 2015. With above average snowpack in... More

Husband and I stopped here for breakfast when preparing to hike Mt Evans. Lodge is lovely and has hummingbird feeders all along the windows in the restaurant. Dozens of hummers were flitting between the feeders...wonderful to watch. Service was scattered. Servers acted as if the restaurant was full, when really only 1/3 full. Portions were huge but the food was... More

We stopped here while driving towards Mt. Evans. The road was closed and is expected to be until the end of August. However, the walk around the lake was extremely pleasant. We ate at the lodge afterwards. Some of us had only pie and coffee while others tried burgers and the pot pie. You can watch tons of hummingbirds from... More

My wife and I visited Echo Lake restaurant for lunch. After about a 20 minute wait the waitress indicated that they just had a big order and that's why it was taking so long. It would have been nice if she told us this before we ordered so we could make the decision whether to stay or not. I don't... More

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
