The owners of the Lamp Post Lodge are semi-retired, so do not expect everything you would get at another B&B. There is no breakfast served. The place is largely automated with computerized locks.

That having been said: This is a clean, comfortable place to stay. The beds are rather on the firm side, but very comfortable. It is a **VERY** quiet place, where you never hear your neighbors. Spacious downstairs area. Just a really nice place.

Room Tip: The quieter rooms are in the back, away from Route 69.

Thanks for posting your review of the Lamp Post Lodge.

We are so appreciative that you stayed with us and look forward to having you back. The Lamp Post Lodge is no longer a Bed & Breakfast, we are operating as a vacation rental lodge and encouraging guests to support the local restaurants for breakfast. We have provided complimentary snack boxes in each room as many of our guests are out hiking early and prefer to take something to go. Our Innkeepers are on call and on-site daily to make all of our guests as comfortable as possible.

Stayed in an upstairs suite facing the snow covered mountains. Highly recommended. Very clean and quite. We felt like at home. Everything looks like new. King mattress on the firm side. Coffee, tea and some snacks.
Westcliffe is a very small town. We went to chance a view the Milky Way, but weather did not cooperate. Check out the Bluff for wildlife. Lots of deer in town. Visited Bishop Castle not far away. Also not far from Royal Gorge.

Thank you so much for the kind review.

Our Innkeepers are passionate about making our guests feel at home. We appreciate the recommendations for activities other guests might want to check out. Westcliffe has so much to offer and is one of the best kept secrets in Colorado. We look forward to your return trip to enjoy our dark skies and incredible outdoor activities.

My husband and I stayed in Westcliffe over our spring break (both teachers) and we had such a great experience! Barb and Dick were great with communicating about our stay at the lodge even though we didn't actually meet them in person. The room was extremely clean and had an amazing view of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. It wasn't your typical B&B experience (no one there to meet you or breakfast) but we enjoyed our time there and really liked the lodge!

Thanks for your review, Cassie! We are thrilled you had a great stay in Westcliffe, and we hope to have you back soon!
We converted from a Bed and Breakfast last year, into a Vacation Rental Lodge. This has allowed our guests to visit some of the great breakfast spots in town (Ranchers Roost, Willies Place, Sugar & Spice Bakery, etc) while also allowing more flexibility for Dick & Barb to enjoy time with their family.

THIS IS NOT A BED AND BREAKFAST!! My husband and I stayed one night. There was no one to meet us, actually no one was there at all. Not one human being on the premises. Some of you might think that's great, but it's a bit disconcerting. They give you codes for your door, and the front door and that's it! It is very clean, and quiet. There is no one there to answer questions, and zero breakfast.

We are very sorry to hear that your stay at The Lamp Post Lodge was not completely satisfactory. We have transitioned the Lodge away from a full service Bed & Breakfast to a more self service lodging model to allow our Innkeepers more time with their grandchildren. The Innkeepers live a short distance away and are always happy to answer any questions you may have, and are consistently on-site assisting with the comfort of our guests. We appreciate your feedback and if there is anything we can do to make up for the miscommunication we would welcome your call.

All the best,
Owners, The Lamp Post Lodge

We went to Westcliffe to see the stars and the Milky Way; the town is a designated Dark Skies area. The weather was iffy but after dinner the skies cleared and I was able to see the Milky Way and millions of stars plus a shooting star! Check one off the bucket list! Our room (the Bristlecone) at the lodge was spacious and comfortable and clean. My only complaint was that it was a little too warm for sound sleeping, which was a surprise considering the elevation and weather. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful and breakfast was good. At their recommendation, we had steaks for dinner at casual Chappy's bar and grill on Main street, which were delicious, cooked on a wood fire grill. And for dessert, we had the Milky Way, topped with a shooting star!

Room Tip: Bristlecone is the largest room. Nice front porch with rocking chairs to look at the mountains. Pretty sunset views.
