“Stepping back in Colorado ski history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Such a charming spot! In the past few years I had eaten dinner here a couple of times and always really enjoyed it, so when a couple of my college friends decided to come out for a mini reunion, it seemed like a perfect chance to actually spend the night at The Ski Tip. We had the little two bedroom suite with a private bath, and it was lovely. The beds were exceptionally comfy and the complimentary breakfast was terrific. You really do feel transported back in time - no phones or TVs (the wifi was great, so if you really need to you can watch TV on your PC). My only complaint would be the noise as all the guests made their way to their rooms. This is an old building and the floors creaked as folks walked on them. The good news is, the inn is small so the noise came early and was short-lived. I absolutely plan to stay here again.

If Rick Steves recommended hotels in Colorado, he would surely recommend the Ski Tip Lodge. This little gem has many of the elements that Steves loves in the European hotels he recommends. Quaint charm. Friendly service. The chance to chat with fellow travelers while drinking a beer next to a roaring fire. A historical connection to Keystone. Indeed, you feel like you're in a guest haus in Murren or Saas Fee. As an added plus, the best restaurant in Keystone is part of this hotel. The breakfast that is included with your room price is fantastic (the duck Omelette was really yummy). If you want a $1,000 room at the Beaver Creek Ritz, with fake smiles, marble bathrooms, and exorbitant spa options, this might not be your place. But if you want something authentic, something comfortable and cozy, and something very convenient to the River Run gondola and lift, then look no further. And it's a great deal to boot.

Beautiful, quaint, lovely little hideaway. Have stayed here many times over the years, always like going back. Sits in a pine forest, totallly peaceful, mountain views, very European/Alps feel. Best breakfast you could ever want. Service is fantastic, totally relaxing, wonderful experience.

good food, OUTSTANDING service, in a charming building with wonderful views. our sole complaint: noise level. because the dining room has a very low ceiling, it doesn't take much for noise to become a problem -- especially for the hard-of-hearing. the next table was occupied by 4 women who seemed to compete with each other as to who could bray the loudest. it would have been a disaster for us had the service staff not been so accommodating by allowing us to move to a quieter (but not quiet) part of the room. i suspect noise level is a wild card ... there will be times when it's not a problem ... it'll depend on the other diners is in the room. having dessert and coffee in a comfortable lounge with wonderful views adds a lot to the experience ... this room is also a good place for a pre-dinner cocktail. your tab will be hefty, but ski tip is recommended for a special evening.

We were in the area looking for a fine dining restaurant and heard about Ski Tip Lodge. The reviews were good, but it was hard to tell what it was. We drove out and actually had a hard time finding it. (They need better signage)
We walked in and received a warm welcome and a great evening commenced. Service was the best in the area, we got great advice on the wine selections and the food was a WOW. We thought it was over when we had dessert in the fireplace room. How special. I recommend it highly.

We made a reservation here for a family dinner without knowing the cost. We did enjoy the lovely & historic house and great service. We were very excited to try their food. The food was delicious and we almost finished all ou dishes. My boy even ate all his pork belly & steak. Th highlight of the night is to eat our desserts by fireplace. We enjoyed cozy and warm feeling & looked at the snow outside. Well, only thing is tough for us-is when we saw our bills...we will come again, we just need to save up more money.
