This was our 2nd stay at Mt. Elbert Lodge and we had a wonderful time. We highly recommend staying here. You're close to so many activities, whether in Leadville or Buena Vista, and Scott and Laura have made this destination one of a kind.
I knew from experience that we would be tired when we arrived, so I prepared spaghetti sauce in advance and had frozen it. Rather than drive back into town, all I had to do was warm it up, cook the pasta and warm up the garlic bread.
My daughter and a friend of hers came with us for a few days and now they are already talking about getting more people to come with us and renting The Barn next summer.
Who needs a fitness center when you have the Rockies at your door step?

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We began as a base camp for miners back in the heyday of Colorado's mining boom and today we are a quiet get-away nestled in National Forest at the base of Colorado's highest peak. Step out of today's hectic world into a quieter time at Mt. Elbert Lodge. We have no TVs, radios or phones in our comfortable housekeeping cabins; we do have a front row seat to the Colorado Rockies. ... more less
