High in the Colorado Rockies is Colorado's oldest hotel-THE PECK HOUSE. Built in 1862 and on the National Register of Historic Places, the Victorian rooms of this Colorado hotel abound with antiques, some original. Rated 5 star, the restaurant of the owner Chef has won the Colorado Governor's Award for Colorado Cuisine and been a finalist for Uncle Ben's 10 BEST COUNTRY INNS OF THE YEAR award. Situated at the gateway to the Rockies, many ski areas and Historic Districts are nearby.

If you want a quiet haven in a historical setting, you must visit the Peck House. I always find time to stop by on my way to Breckenridge, if only for a gourmet meal. The dinner menu is outstanding with quality that can match any restaurant in Colorado
