We came up to Twin Lakes for a late anniversary getaway and were told about Ores and Mine by a friend. The trip could not have gone better. From the moment we parked we felt like we were at home. Donna greeted us like cherished family, and could not have been more warm and helpful throughout our stay. The whole place was such a kick - we could have spent several days just exploring the B&B itself. Breakfast was wonderful, and conversation with Donna over coffee was equally warm and fulfilling. We also hit nearly peak color, and the hiking & walking trails in the area are amazing. We stayed in the Matchless room, and the view out across the lake was breathtaking with the fall color. If we weren't so eager to get out and explore we could have stayed in the room enjoying the view all day. Ores and Mine is now firmly on our list of favorite places and we will be back!

My wife and I introduced another couple to the Ores and Mine B&B last week because we so enjoyed our first visit three years ago. Our friends agreed with our assessment that the B&B is truly unique and wonderful. Donna, the owner, is a fantastic hostess who makes everyone feel so welcome and goes out of her way to make your stay very enjoyable. Her grandson, Tony, was helping his grandmother while we were there and he is as friendly and helpful as Donna. Her breakfast was delicious and the coffee was on when I got up at 0600. The location is beautiful, surrounded by some of Colorado's tallest peaks and twin lakes across the road. Donna was born and raised in Leadville and is a walking history book. Her humorous tales and stories of early Leadville and her extensive collection of historical artifacts, books, articles, etc are worth staying here for no other reason than to relive a part of Colorado's early mining history. Just a tremendous place to stay if you are anywhere within a hundred miles traveling thru central Colorado. You won't be disappointed.

This was our fourth or fifth trip to Ores And Mines. The setting is charming, it’s great easy access to some of the 14 or‘s or a wonderful fairly level hike across the lake. It’s clean, very comfortable, and Donna makes wonderful breakfast and was so accommodating to a group with different diets The collection that she have make it quick kitschy. She is so warm and welcome man, you truly feel like family.

Donna and her late husband John have made this log cabin into an amazingly comfortable B&B. Donna is warm and welcoming, and makes a great breakfast. 4 (or 5) spacious bedrooms, each with their own full bathroom, a large great room with antigue bar, large dining table, pool table, ping pong table, hand shuffle board table, inside, large deck outside overlooking two pristine lakes and the mountains. And the place is a virtual museum, and Donna is an excellent docent. No wi fi , so get used to enjoying yourself with other guests.

My hyusband Ed and I are newlyweds. He as been wanting to show me Twin Lakes since we met and the beauty it holds. I found Ores and Mine online and fell in love with the name, Ores and Mine. After reading a review on line about the memories of the families that have come and gone I just had to call and make a reservation...I fell in love with Ms. Donna on the phone and shes of course warmer in person.. she put us in the Matchless Room and it was nothing short of a fairy tale setting. the lake in the morning and the moon dancing on the lake at night is spectacular and that's the view from your room. Ive never stayed in a museum before but I have now....we slept amazingly to wake up to Ms. D making amazing coffee and the best French toast ive ever had. it melts in your mouth. the works for breakfast and the best hostess ever. her grandson Tony is a gent. we are so grateful to our new family at Ores and Mine and we will be returning sooner than later. Bar none it was the best lodging experience we have ever had. Patsy her asst. is a gem as well. Thank you, Ms. Donna for opening your home and your lives to Ed and I. Sorry it took so long to get this done. I love you. M
