“Comfy, Cozy, and Homey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

I love the Snow Queen. This has been my favorite place to stay in Aspen for many years. If you want luxury, with room service and 1000 threadcount sheets, this isn't it, but feel free to check into the Little Nell or St. Regis and pay $650/night. However, for a fraction of the price, the location of the Snow Queen can't be beat and the accommodations are perfectly fine. The owners are lovely and "M", the innkeeper, is more than glad to help with any questions or requests. Best of all, breakfast is included in the price. "M" will happily cook your eggs to order to eat along with assorted pastries, cereals, English muffins, toast, oatmeal, fruit, juice, coffee, hot tea, hot chocolate, and yogurt. There is always laughter and story-telling around the communal table in the kitchen each morning. It is a wonderful place to meet people from all around the world and to run into old friends, as happened to me this year. I am also looking forward to the new flatscreen TV coming for the lobby. It's nice to sit and visit with other guests in the lobby while enjoying that second cup of coffee. In the afternoon, the group moves to the hot tub located just a few steps out the door. The beverage also changes, but I won't go into details on that! Overall, the Snow Queen Lodge has everything you need for a wonderful visit to Aspen.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms with an outside entrance. I prefer these, although the ones inside are nic...

To be fair, the staff were very friendly. But couldn't make up for the paper thin walls, bathroom wasn't clean and when I went to put items in the medicine cabinet, the shelf fell off. To make matters worse was we paid for 4 nights - which 3 of them happened to be next to the roadie from a rock band playing in town that week. He clomped home from the bars around 2am and had friends over until 6am. The walls were so thin that when a cell phone rang we thought it was ours...it wasn't. I complained to the owner that first day. Was told they left a note for the guy. Well....that pissed off the roadie even MORE so he was louder the next night. We didn't receive any compensation for this.

Great location; spotlessly clean. Plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 teenagers in our loft unit.
Friendly and helpful staff.
Old-fashioned decor, but that added to the charm!

sweet and quiet b&b without the slick. great location a few blocks away from the town center--close enough to get to anything quickly, but far enough to be away from the crowds.
