When I first read all the reviews, EVERYONE talked about how "cozy" the residence was and when I got there, that was literally the first thing I said. It was so cozy. The perfect winter getaway. We had a wonderful stay. The hosts were incredibly nice and the other guests were very pleasant. Most couples stayed to themselves, which was... More

My fiancee and I spend a wonderful evening here the day we got engaged. The lodge was clean, cozy and beautiful. There was plenty of common rooms to enjoy, from a comfy TV room to a den with a warm fireplace (I'm assuming it would be warm, the weather was too hot for a fire when we stayed). I especially...

Fantastic lodge beautiful decorated with beautiful views-- only to be topped by tremendous service. My wife and I recently visited here for a night for our fifth wedding anniversary, and the Silver Lake lodge was exactly what we were looking for. Serene environment, a beautiful mountain cabin, but the innkeeper Jim really makes you feel like you are at a... More

A delightful mountain retreat at over 10,000 feet that is only about an hour from Denver. We, a couple in our mid-60's, stayed for a weekday night in late September. The hiking from the lodge is spectacular -- we enjoyed a night hike in the mountains above the lodge to view the spectacular starts, an early morning hike before breakfast... More

My husband and I recently enjoyed a four-night stay at The Silver Lake Lodge. Jim and his staff are the quintessential hosts, and the lodge matched their hospitality expertise. From the smallest details of fresh flowers and chocolates in our room, to the magnificent scenery, lakes, and hiking trails one, simple step from the door—every amenity was perfect. The bed... More

The lodge is beautiful, tucked away from everything. There are so many things to explore on foot nearby, great trails, lakes, and the glacier. The rooms are cozy but spacious enough that everyone could find seclusion if that's what they wanted. The beds are comfy, showers have good pressure and are nice and hot after a long hike! Fresh flowers... More
