We spent the 4th of July in the Top of the Rockies suite and are still in shock at how nice it was. The house is just charming and so well located for exploring in Leadville. It is a full suite with two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bath with every amenity that you would need for an extended stay. It was comfortable, cozy and very clean. I was worried about this being a bed and breakfast experience and it was not that at all. We had our own entrance and were able to come and go as we pleased. The hosts were and helpful and very friendly.
Leadville is just my kind of town with a nice shopping main street and some great restaurants, all within walking distance from this great lodging. Most of the lodging in Leadville is located away from the city center, which I always find inconvenient. I am pretty confident that this is the best located lodging in town and we are so grateful to have found it.
I also have to give a shout out to Tennessee Pass Cafe because it was great! We had their eggplant rolls, chicken basil pizza and chocolate stout cake. Their menu is built around locally Colorado sourced products and everything was just great.
We had a great time in Leadville and will definitely be back!
