Our room, San Isabel, had a spectacular view. The room size is generous as well as the bathroom. We spent 4 nights and never felt cramped. The owners provided tea, coffee, water kettle and nice array of snacks. If you are an avid coffee drinker, like myself, bring Starbucks Via with you for home base coffee. Then head to Sangre Home Decor and Sweets on Main Street. (5 minutes away) They open at 9 am for great espresso drinks and more. We stopped each morning as we headed out for the next adventure.
Honestly, this is the best location. We were all over the place from Canon City, Cotopaxi, Silver Cliff to San Isabel National Forest. West Cliffe seems to be an easy home base for all this area has to offer.
We had the windows open every day and night. The fresh Colorado air was welcomed coming from hot and humid Texas.
Lamp Post Inn pays attention to quality linens and towels. The rosemary mint shampoo, body soap and hand soap was exquisite! My only regret was not making it to Hillside Store to purchase some for myself!
We were absolutely comfortable here and highly recommend it. There is wildlife all around. We even had a daily visit from a Whitetail doe.
We will be back next Summer because there is so much more to do!
Thank you for the guide to the area listing. We constantly referred to it for recommendations!
