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 and friendly sharing the history of the place as well as local tidbits of info.
The included breakfast was more than ample and simply delicious. It provided excellent fuel for our hikes in Rocky Mountain National Park. We also ordered box lunches, and they were very well-prepared and stocked. A couple could actually share one and still have plenty to eat. We ate their soup and salad dinner one night, and it, too, was delicious.
The location is great. I walked out the door each morning and went birding and hiking before breakfast. The inn is right across the highway from RMNP's Lily Lake. Miles of trails can be accessed from there including the Twin Sisters and Estes Cone.
The only reason I don't give the inn five stars is simply that some folks may want more luxury, larger rooms, fancier bathrooms, but we loved it just as it is.
