My family loved the view. The drive there was very pretty. Kids loved the road that takes u there. We rented canoe there and that was a huge hit with kids. We would go back there again in a heartbeat.

My husband drove out to Piney Lake for one afternoon in September. We didn't stay there, we didn't hike, we didn't have time. Turns out, it was well worth it for the views alone and when we got there, a MOOSE was standing in the lake not far from shore. How cool, how beautifully breathtaking! We can't wait to stay there sometime, what an experience that would be to wake up to that every day!

Best thing to say is have your adventure and try it out for yourself. I found it beautiful, nice trails and decent food. A LOT of fun! It's a long slow drive though. Took us about 45 minutes on the dirt road.

In summer time, this is a great place to visit. 40 minutes away from Vail with different walking trails and wonderful views. Excellent place for picnics and family/friends gatherings.

Fun! This place is definitely beautiful. The road in/out is not as bad as others have said, but it is not easy either. The lake, surrounding mountains, and fall colors were truly spectacular. We stayed in one of the lakeside glamping tents. They really need to update that description as they are not only not lakeside but actually situated behind the cabins.

Other than that, the place is great. Nice lodge with decent selection of gifts to take home, decent food - although a little pricey, and great service from the two ladies running the show.
