We enjoyed everything about our stay here. The rooms were neat and cared for. The atmosphere was quite and calming. We enjoyed the walk around town and exploring the Inn. We are history buffs and appreciated the care that had been taken to keep the inn good condition, yet maintain its history. You should be aware that rooms do not have AC or TVs, but that was not problem for us. You really do not need AC at 7,000 ft with windows open at night and the balcony was a great place to sit and read the news or a book. There is a little bit of a haunted history to add to the fun of the inn.
We did have dinner at the restaurant there and the food was by far some of the best that we have ever had. The Chef(Susan) is amazing. Her bread pudding with white chocolate was off the charts.
We are planning on making this a regular destination for us to get away to for a night. It was only 3 hours from Denver and yet felt a world away.
