Colorado Christmas!

5 on December 27, 2014

Our son was visiting from LA and we were on a very unusual work schedule. Christmas morning we knew we wanted to get away but not too far from Denver..... So we found Silver Lake Lodge on line and booked the Silver Lake Lodge King suite that had an additional small room for our son! It was magical to have driven only one hour and 9 Miles into the woods . . . We were living in a snow globe on Christmas!! Absolutely loved Jim and his warm and professional hospitality and gourmet food! We will return time and again . . And we miss Kona his furry friend already!


Beautiful Mountain Sanctuary

My soul mate and I came up to spend our one year anniversary at The Silver Lake Lodge, everything about it made our hearts melt. A beautiful cabin over looking St. Mary's Glacier, wonderful five star restaurant quality food and not to mention the sweetest most welcoming host Jim. Its a place of dreams and we made it our reality. We are definitely going to remake that reality.


Best getaway ever!!!

This was our second visit to The Silverlake Lodge and once again everything was exceptional! Jim and Bonnie were awesome! They pampered and spoiled us the entire time. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Winterland Retreat and the views are spectacular. The meals were outstanding! Jim makes a delicious hearty breakfast to prepare you for a day of hiking or many of the other activities that are available in the area. Kona, Jim's furry best friend is always ready to accompany anyone that wants to go for a hike up St. Mary's Glacier. I can't wait to go back again and again!!


Best mountain secret!

Most unbelievable experience we have had in a long time. So unexpected for a new Bed and Breakfast :) Jim was such a perfect host, we can't wait to go back. The ambiance is cozy and relaxing, we came home so refreshed. The food is to die for and I can't believe this gem is only an hour from Denver. Can't wait to book our next trip.
