We had a wonderful stay right after Christmas at the lodge. It was very cozy, relaxing, adventurous and delicious! We snowshoed for 5 hours (much longer than excepted but we were having so much fun) going up the hill behind the lodge and up a few ridges and down St. Mary's Glacier. It was snowing and felt like a winter...

A large, rustic log cabin with multiple fireplaces, rooms for sitting, visiting, recreation, and dining-all decorated in a mountain theme. Fresh flowers and soft beds. Large windows with great mountain views from any room. Service and food was excellent. I felt like a queen! Soft music playing in the background while big, fluffy flakes fell outside, the fireplace glowing-this was...

When I first read all the reviews, EVERYONE talked about how "cozy" the residence was and when I got there, that was literally the first thing I said. It was so cozy. The perfect winter getaway. We had a wonderful stay. The hosts were incredibly nice and the other guests were very pleasant. Most couples stayed to themselves, which was...

My fiancee and I spend a wonderful evening here the day we got engaged. The lodge was clean, cozy and beautiful. There was plenty of common rooms to enjoy, from a comfy TV room to a den with a warm fireplace (I'm assuming it would be warm, the weather was too hot for a fire when we stayed). I especially...

Fantastic lodge beautiful decorated with beautiful views-- only to be topped by tremendous service. My wife and I recently visited here for a night for our fifth wedding anniversary, and the Silver Lake lodge was exactly what we were looking for. Serene environment, a beautiful mountain cabin, but the innkeeper Jim really makes you feel like you are at a...

A delightful mountain retreat at over 10,000 feet that is only about an hour from Denver. We, a couple in our mid-60's, stayed for a weekday night in late September. The hiking from the lodge is spectacular -- we enjoyed a night hike in the mountains above the lodge to view the spectacular starts, an early morning hike before breakfast...
