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).

Wild Horse Inn - Stay #2

4.8 on January 09, 2015

The people make this one of the finest experiences I have had. The food is outstanding and everyone, including Bella, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

Very Enjoyable

We stayed in one of the dog friendly cabins. John was a great host, made us and the dogs feel very much at home. Can't say enough about the cabin, although it is on the small side, it was very clean, well equipped and relaxing. Would definitely recommend.

Peacefull getaway

Lovely mountain B&B

4.0 on July 26, 2014

The Wild Horse Inn was lovely - close to lots of things to do. The breakfasts were wonderful. We stayed in a cabin which was very nice. The cabins are not house keeping cabins - the "kitchen" only has a microwave, coffee pot and small frig - but this was fine for our short trip.

A lovely mountain hideaway

4.6 on June 22, 2014

This is a very well managed B&B. It is very attractive and clean and comfortable. We enjoyed all aspects of our stay including the outdoor areas with great views. The staff is very personalble and helpful. There were nice little touches like an ongoing cookie jar,wine,available coffee early in the am and well appointed rooms. The common areas were very welcoming and comfortable.Would highly recommend The Wild Horse.

Wonderful setting

This is our 3rd time staying at Wildhorse and we will be back again.

Better than we hoped for!

4.8 on May 30, 2014

The Wild Horse Inn was everything we hoped for and more! We booked the "Buckskin Room" and it was utterly beautiful. The only "downside" that might exist for some visitors is that it is right off the lobby. This means that you can hear others talking, breakfast preparations in the morning, etc. If you value more privacy, I would recommend one of the other rooms in the lodge or an adorable cabin, two of which even allow your pet!! Everything is spotless and upscale. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening and the complimentary glass of wine on our private part of the deck! They have a little rescue dog, Bella, that is a delight and helped alleviate the loneliness of leaving our own dogs behind :-) John was so creative with breakfast that even I, a "non breakfast person" ate every last bite. The whole experience was perfect and left us slightly depressed when our visit was over!! My husband and I can't wait to return!

We LOVE this Inn !

4.8 on May 08, 2014

We love this Inn! This is the second time my husband and I have stayed there. The memories that stood out for us the first time - were how comfortable it was to lounge in front of the large stone fire place and look through the great collection of books, and how much we enjoyed the high bed and the conversations we had with the other guests around the breakfast table. This time we had the luxury to stay in the Mariposa Cabin. I feel I could live there full time. It is a great use of space – and lots of attention is paid to details i.e. a hand-painted sink in the bathroom. I appreciate all of the materials used in the structures and furniture throughout the lodge. The setting is lovely ….very convenient to several mountain towns and hikes. And it is less than 2 hours from where we live in Denver. The atmosphere is relaxing and stimulating at the same time. We look forward to going there again and again.

Beautiful Escape for a Mountain Weekend

4.2 on April 01, 2014

When planning a weekend getaway to the mountains we found Wild Horse Inn online and thought it looked cute, was close enough to Winter Park Skiing, and was a reasonable price. When we showed up we were so pleasantly surprised by the whole property! It's gorgeous. The main Inn is SO cozy, clean, and comfortable. The other guests were very friendly but not too intrusive. Chris, on of the owners was welcoming and helped us to plan a snowshoeing day. And the room was so much cuter than we anticipated! We loved our stay . . . especially the community wine that we kept flowing, even in the hot tub! We will definitely come back to stay again and have already recommended it to friends/family. The one negative that we found is that noise from the rooms does carry, so if you want complete privacy I would highly recommend the cabins which are only a few seconds walk away. Otherwise this place is a gem!!
