Description: Come back to where it all began for Keystone. This former 1800s stagecoach stop has been transformed into a cozy bed and breakfast that boasts some of the best food this side of the Continental Divide. Step inside and you may never want to leave as the aroma of delicious cuisine fills the air. Experience the rotating four-course dinner menu and thoughtful service that continues to get rave reviews. Top off the night in a comfortable seat next to a rustic fireplace with a selection from Ski Tip's famed desserts. Join us for Apres from 3p-5p for drink specials and a la carte appetizers. No reservations needed for Apres, not available on private event days please call ahead for availability. Our dining room seats from 5:45p-6:30p and then again from 8p-8:45p for our 4-course dinner. Reservations are required.

“My Highest Recommendation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

The restaurant is in a beautiful log cabin (that is also a B&B!) with plenty of character and charm in an intimate and quiet environment. You start in the dining area and finish with desert in one of the sitting rooms next to beautiful fireplaces, wood beams and great views.
Service is friendly, professional, and overall first rate.
Food, oh the food...We regularly sample the latest and 'best' restaurants in our area and seek out the most recommended offerings when traveling, and I can tell you without hesitation that Ski Tip Lodge is an incredible, can't miss experience. There is a demonstration of culinary genius here that is rare to find. We can't wait to come back and will dreaming of our next dinner here at the Ski Tip Lodge!

“Wine dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Excellent dinner and superb wine pairings at Ski Tip. Certainly rivaled (if not surpassed) Auberge in Napa and for a lot less in cost. The wine steward really worked to find excellent pairings - especially for one course which was supposed to have a sweet wine. Agreeing to my dislike of same an alternative (excellent) was found with no dithering. Make reservations and try this one.

“Perfect Mountian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Without a doubt, this is the best fine dining restaurant in Keystone. I have been dining here for years and they never disappoint ... the chef is amazing and Megan is wonderful with her wine pairing suggestions. Menu changes nightly, so worth a couple of visits if you can. Great value for the quality and quantity as well.

“outstanding experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Old lodge with character.
Prix fixe for a four-course dinner - which changes daily.
Every course was explained knowledgeably by our server, and when asked, her advice was excellent.
Water glasses filled without having to ask.
We had a child with us, and they had substitutions that worked for him.
My husband and I each took a different option in each course, and shared.
There was nothing that was not appreciated for the proper cooking, presentation, and the way that different flavors were incorporated together in each dish.
We've eaten at many of the highly rated restaurants in many cities, and felt that this restaurant outshone them in so many ways.
We'd noticed multiple fireplaces and cozy seating arrangements when we'd arrived. We were taken to one area after dinner and ordered and enjoyed our desserts there.
Outstanding experience.

“Fabulous dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Five of us dined at the Ski Tip Lodge during our trip to Keystone. The food was excellent, as was the service, despite some problems in the kitchen. The atmosphere is intimate and charming. The food is pretty pricey, but worth it.
