Just 5 minutes from Winter Park! Handcrafted from 400-year-old Englemann pine logs, moss covered rock and giant picture windows, The Wild Horse Inn is reminiscent of the grand mountain lodges built at the turn of the 20th century, back when Colorado was rougher around the edges and refinement had a distinctively rustic flair. The Wild Horse Inn offers spacious and comfortable guest areas, on-site massage services, sauna, hot tub and forest gardens. Three cozy cabins feature fireplaces, king beds, covered porches and kitchenettes, while seven unique and intimate guestrooms in the main lodge offer private whirlpool bath and balcony. Gourmet breakfasts and a Bottomless Cookie Jar offering keep guests coming back. Greeting wine and chilled soda's courtesy of hour hosts. Borrow a book from our guest library, pour over maps to find your next trail, or play a quiet game of chess while you enjoy the warmth of the massive stone fireplace. You've found the perfect place for a mountain getaway or your special event. Great DVD library (no cable).
Room has a queen bed, private bathroom, fireplace and balcony.

We stayed at the Inn for two nights and everything was lovely. The staff were great and Bella the dog was a delight. Great hot tub and the claw foot tub in our room was hard to leave. Our breakfasts were delicious, the company gracious and we were just a few miles from all of the Winter Park activities.

The Wild Horse Inn is a beautiful log cabin lodge in a gorgeous setting. Our hosts were friendly yet unobtrusive. The food was great and our room was comfortable and lovely.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Wild Horse Inn. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The entire house was peaceful even when it seemed to be full. We were delighted to have a fireplace in our room as well as a DVD. We also enjoyed the inviting living room area with a cozy fireplace and ample reading selections. The cookie jar and complimentary wine were fantastic additions. Also, the location to outdoor activities was just right.

My boyfriend and I stayed here in one of the cabins and even though we are not skiers, there was plenty to do in Fraser/Winter Park/Granby. The cabins looked fairly new, clean, large, warm, and quiet! Exactly what we were looking for. The staff was friendly and polite including the dog, Bella. Will probably return to this place, but maybe in the summer since we got a foot of snow over the three days!

We spent most of the weekend in the bathtub. It's like your own private hot tub, sent from the heavens above. Then after that, the extremely comfortable bed enveloped us in its warm sheets and downy pillows. It was gloriously warm in the cabin and far enough back that it felt like our own private getaway. The fireplace enhanced the mood even further, and there was a wonderful collection of DVDs for those cold Colorado nights. The house dog Bella is enough reason by herself to stay there! The owners were extremely kind and the lodge was very well kept. Morning breakfast was greatly looked forward to and was always warm and delicious (frittatas...mmm) The location was excellent and easy to find yet set far enough off US 40 that it was quiet and serene. We would highly recommend this inn to anyone looking for a relaxing adventure or getaway for you and your loved one. There are plenty of things to do in the area, especially if you're snow-minded - we recommend the Tabernash Tavern (in Tabernash no less) - try their Chicken Wellington, it's divine. Overall our stay felt entirely too short but we will be back - and as far as any mountain travel in the future goes, Wild Horse Inn will be our easy first choice.

Follow signs to I25 South, then take I70 West. Take I70 to Highway 40 over Berthoud Pass. Go through Winter Park and Fraser, then turn right on County Road 83 (follow the signs to Devil's Thumb). Look for our sign 1.5 miles from Highway 40, and turn right into our driveway. If you get to Devil's Thumb Ranch, you've gone too far.
