There are many choices of where to stay in Lake City, and we are so glad we picked The Inn at the Lake. It was a hard choice not to stay right in town, but the short drive out to Lake San Cristobal was totally worth it. The views were beautiful...the star gazing amazing...and the customer service outstanding. The owners were the best, and their breakfasts were sooooo delicious.

The Inn at the Lake was such an enjoyable stay. The views were incredible. Friendly owners and staff create a fun pleasant time for all ages. They provided s’mores and a campfire in the evening and a lovely breakfast. The only recommendation I have is to bring a small fan to help bring in some of that cool mountain air into your room at night as it can get a little warm in those summer months! We are already planning our next stay!

An amazing place! We loved our three nights there. David and the staff were great and very friendly. Our room was rustic but comfortable, well appointed, and clean. The breakfasts were very good. Highly recommend!

Once in a rare while, you find a place that transcends even the beauty of its location, that exceeds expectations, and most importantly leaves an indelible mark on your memory, your soul. This is more than a B&B, when you stay here you truly feel welcome, you feel like family. The owner David was there during our stay and is one of the most genuine, open, and down to earth persons I have ever met. He shared stories from his life with us and other guests that moved us and gave us pause to reflect on all we have and all the goodness that can be there if we make an effort to look. The staff during our stay was an amazing group of people from Oklahoma. They were all volunteer, friends of the owner and we felt like we got to know them during our 6 night stay. Everyone made us feel so welcome, and the breakfasts that they created were absolutely delicious, including the best cinnamon sticky buns I have ever had (compliments of star-baker Lannie, who aptly named them 'sin-a-bons)'. During each breakfast, David shares a life story with all the guests. Each story is very moving and will change you because he shares his stories with an open heart and a gracious humility. Even our skeptical 21 year old said he was really touched by each morning's story. We'll come back and hope to see some familiar faces when we do. Bring your group, your family and you will make new friends and create new memories for a lifetime.

This is my second year staying here. The couple that runs the lodge are the friendliest people you will ever meet. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. They make homemade breakfast each morning and sometimes start a bonfire and make s’mores in the evening. It’s on a beautiful lake in the mountains with a gorgeous mountain you can see right off of the porch. There’s little light pollution, so you can see so many stars. It’s worth the trip!
