The Baldpate has been the spot of my yearly solo vacation for the last 6 years. I happened upon it through a simple search of B&Bs in Estes Park, and could not have been more pleased. The large front deck is the perfect place to catch up on reading, writing, or simply relaxing.

The rooms are cozy and comfortable, think staying in your dream Grandparent's cabin. The shared bathrooms are clean and host wonderful, claw foot bathtubs.

The buffet meals are delicious, and well worth the price. Make sure to save room for the muffins and cornbread, as they are some of the best I have ever eaten.

At the top of the road entrance, Lily Lake is a wonderful place for a morning or late evening walk without needing your car.

Overall, I would recommend the Baldpate for a quite weekend away for couples or singles. It may be a bit quaint for families with small children, as much of the charm is in the quite, mellow ambiance.

My family has been coming to dinner here for over 60 years. I can remember going to see the Key Room, and amazed at the number of keys. Today, they have a computer registry so visitors can look to see people who donated keys..
We have celebrated wedding anniversaries at the inn. Our children requested a special cake for our 45th anniversary. A surprise for us! Food was delicious, plentiful, in a unique atmosphere.After dinner, we sat on the balcony an watched humming birds visit the many feeders.

This is a really interesting place to stay. Great, scenic location right on the twin sisters mountain. Great views. The food, especially the breakfasts are incredible. Of course, you will have to browse the key room. Great lobby area and fireplaces. The staff was very friendly.

For those looking for modern convenience, this is an older inn so know what to expect. Floors can be slopped. The heating system has a mind of it's own (it was on the second night very strongly but not on during the first night). The fireplaces downstairs are very cozy but most of the inn has a slightly smokey smell.

This is a great, historic inn, in a spectacular location. A great experience. I recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have private bathrooms but some do not. The hallway bathrooms and showers are fine if you use them. Robes are provided.

Wonderful experience at the BaldPate Inn. Staff couldn't have made me feel more at home and were very accommodating. Room was appointed in a lovely manner, bed was comfortable, and whole place had a rustic charm that was lovely. Fun to nestle into a big overstuffed chair and nestle down with a good book or sit out on the front porch and take in the beauty of the surroundings. Would definitely go back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that won't be right over the entry way. It can get loud with people congregating there at night. That same room can also be a tad smoky when the fire is roaring. But neither of these are showstoppers for any room.

This is a good place - good prices, and lots of charm. We've always been a little lukewarm on the college students that run the place (no local knowledge, lacking in customer service - but not awful), but we stayed this past weekend and no one could/would manage the fire in the common area. the entire top floor was filled with smoke, our 3 year old coughed all night, and our clothes smell of campfire. Ugh!
