What a comfy and cozy inn in a beautiful location! Andy the owner made sure we had everything we could possibly need. There was every kind of toiletry you could imagine available for our free use, even toothbrushes. I was with a large group of friends, some stayed in private bathroom rooms but I stayed in a room with the bathroom down the hall and it was not a big deal at all. Robes are provided in the rooms, too. We are a few meals in the Inn’s restaurant and couldn’t believe how delicious the food was, especially for a restart in a tiny town like Twin Lakes. I highly recommend stopping here for a couple of nights while traveling through Colorado. Great hikes and bike trails all over that take off right from the inn.

We’ve stayed at the Inn twice now and we’ve had nothing but great experiences! It’s conveniently located a short drive to the Mt. Elbert South Trailhead. Andy, the innkeeper is warm, welcoming and knowledgeable about the area, weather, and hiking conditions. The Inn staff is friendly and accommodating to their guests by helping make dinner arrangements in the restaurant and providing grab and go breakfast and other options for early hikers if needed.
Our room and bathroom were sparkling clean and comfortable and exactly what we needed after an exhausting day in the mountains. Finally, the restaurant is a great place to have some delicious food and some drinks after a long day in the great outdoors.

Thank you for the fantastic hospitality, Twin Lakes Inn. We will absolutely
be back!

I had driven by Twin Lakes Inn with mild curiosity for years on my way to "bag a peak" or raft the river. I had a hunch it would be the perfect place to get away for a few days with a friend this summer.

I sunk into the experience right away with the comfort of a super friendly staff, great food and service and a cozy, quaint room surrounded by little bits of history. The inn itself has an inviting, relaxing vibe and we felt right at home.

The activities around the area are plenty. We ran, hiked and rented some paddle boards a few feet out the front door for a pristine day on the lake. The views are unbeatable and plentiful.

I hesitate to make the place too popular, because I want to be sure I get a room the next time I'm in town! If you want a place near some 14ers, some fishing or boating, or just to be with the mountains and some friendly people, I highly recommend!

I am reviewing the restaurant, which I highly recommend. Almost all the seats have a view of the mountains of Twin Lakes which complements the rustic appearance of the building. The food was delicious: pan-seared duck (lots of it!) and stuffed trout. My husband had been looking forward to the fish and really enjoyed it. (They had run out of walleye just as we were seated.) Our dessert was blueberry pana cotta which was light and rich at the same time. Our drinks were just right and the waitress was both chatty and efficient. We were exhausted by flying all day and changing time zones, and the restaurant at Twin Lakes Inn was just the right way to end the day.

Inn is right across the street from Twin Lakes. Enjoyed dinner at a picnic table viewing the aspens and mountains, couldn't have had a better view! Our room (2 double beds) was clean and comfortable. Short walk down the hall was our large, clean, well supplied private bathroom - even had robes for two people. Staff was super friendly and helpful in recommending the best hike we've ever done. Wasn't planning on hiking Mount Elbert but after the description from the front desk personnel, we started out for a partial hike that morning. Hiking through the huge aspen stands was magical and the views of the surrounding mountains, lakes and aspen stands you have while hiking were amazing

I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm visiting the area! Thank you for a wonderful experience Twin Lakes Inn!

My husband and I just spent two nights at the Twin Lakes Inn in Twin Lakes Village, Colorado. The Inn had just reopened as allowed by the State of Colorado. They had taken a great deal of care to make sure that all was extremely clean and that social distancing was easy. We were upgraded to a room with bath as there was only one other guest. All was extremely comfortable and the food in the on site restaurant was top notch. Andy, the host, was more than accommodating in every way. The village is very historic and Andy provided a good map of the houses in town with pertinent information.

At the base of independence pass with amazing views all around.
While this place may not be for everyone we absolutly loved our stay. It is an old Inn built back in the 1850's. It has been maintained beautifully but still has a rustic feel. There is some great history about the "working women" that used some of the rooms back in the day. The restaurant was amazing. Surprised how busy it is given that it is off the beaten path. Also strongly recommend the coffeeshop next door. It's about half way between Buena Vista and Leadville. So for a day of shopping in Leadville and then a day at hot springs in Buena Vista with relaxing mornings on the porch of the coffee shop and fine dining before bed it's just perfect. Highly recommend.

First, this is Twin Lakes, Colorado. Adjust your expectations. Tiny, rustic, a base camp for outdoor adventure. The Twin Lakes Inn is perfect. My room was comfortable, clean, furnished attractively, and complete with supplies and goodies we have learned not to expect. Andrew at the front desk is a Twin Lakes guru. You can ask him anything. Breakfast snacks and coffee each morning push this 1879 inn over the edge of excellence. I will return!

My husband and I just returned from our third stay at the Twin Lakes Inn this year. Once again we thoroughly enjoyed our 3-night stay. Our room was clean, quiet, and comfortable (heat works beautifully). We had a good view and our own bathroom. We ate in the on-site restaurant two of the nights and had two great meals. The cooks are the best and the waitresses fun and efficient. Andy, as always, was helpful and friendly. We can't wait to get back there.

Loved this inn! I visited with a few friends for a fun Fall weekend getaway! The food was AMAZING 😍! I recommend everything, especially the fresh cookies at the front desk.

The inn is super cozy. It was fun to sit in the lobby and restaurant to play board games at night. The owner and staff were super nice and made sure we had everything we needed.

There are great hikes a short walk or drive away. Definitely check out the cute general store next door!

I would definitely stay here again!

We aren't able to accommodate pets as overnight guests. We do have lawn seating where dining guests can enjoy a meal accompanied by their on-leash pets. We can also suggest nearby cabins and campgrounds where pets are permitted.
