I have been from one side of this world to the other and slept under the stars and in five star resorts but Dave and Rosie's Inn at the Lake was one of the finest lodging experiences I have ever had. There aren't a plethora of options in Lake City in high tourist season but the Inn was available. It...

My wife and I have been lots of places in our many years together, but our visit to the "Inn at the Lake" was the ultimate relaxing experience! Just the view from the deck as I drank my morning cup of coffee made it first class! The beauty of the lake, the mountains, everything! And a walk up the county...

David & Rosie Whitelock are gracious hosts. They can point you to all the great outdoor activities that Lake City offers. They serve a hot & hearty breakfast. The Inn looks out over Lake San Cristobal and gorgeous mountain scenery. Open for business May to September.

One of the most painted scenes in North America can be seen out the window of all rooms at the Inn at the Lake, Colorado. That is just the tip of the mountain... Not only is the scenery superb, but the air is crisp and clean. Enough about the atmosphere. The real reason to book a room here is to...

Thanks for coming to be with us and for your kind words describing the Inn. We DO love what we do: making people feel like they are "at home" in the mountains. We wake up everyday thanking God we get to live in such a gorgeous place and that we get to share it with our guests. We look forward...

More like a B&B, the Whitelocks welcome all guests to their small inn as family. With their experience running a Christian youth camp for many years, this does feel more like a retreat house than mere accommodations. The inspirational messages given at breakfast (and what a big, diverse, breakfast it is!), match the uplifting setting of the inn by the...

Thanks for taking the time to write such an encouraging review of the Inn. We were very glad you came to stay for a while so you could unplug from your world and relax for a bit in this beautiful setting. We are sorry about the televisions but cannot find any company who will provide service since the cable company...

This was our first time to stay at The Inn at the Lake and it was probably the best place we have every stayed. It is right beside Lake San Cristobal with a beautiful view. It is a small lodge with only 10 rooms which make it very nice and peaceful. The host "David and Rosie" are some of the...

We spent 5 nights in the scenic and friendly lodge run by Whitelock Ministries. David and Rosie Whitelock and the volunteer staff were extraordinarily friendly and gracious. The inn is situated at the north end of Lake San Cristobol and is at the southeastern end of the Alpine Loop, an extraordinarily beautiful dirt and primitive road loop that traverses mountain...

Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad you came to stay with us. We are deep in the mountains so can't do much about the internet and phone reception. Still we hope it is good to get away from it all for a few days to just enjoy this amazing country and our incredible view. The 8:30...

David, Rosie and the volunteers go above and beyond to make your stay special. You can't help but feel like you have new family members when you leave the B&B! No, there's no tv but who needs it? Time should be spent outside enjoying the beauty that God surrounds the inn with. I personally LOVED the fact that there was...

Tranquil Setting... Terrible Chemical Fragrance - The Room Reeks of Fragrance! This is a Christian establishment. Expect to have preaching and pray for your breakfast. We were given a room that was not private. There was no TV even though it was advertised, limited cell phone reception, no wifi. Nice location.

We knew you weren't happy with your room when you were here and offered to get you a room in town which might better suit your needs. However you told me it was fine and you did not want to move. So sorry about the "terrible chemical fragrance". I wish you would have told us so we could have fixed...
