“You HAVE to stay here!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

Literally, if you come to Colorado, you HAVE to stay here! You will NOT be dissapointed. We arrived late and Jim was more than willing to wait up for us to arrive and show us around the place to ensure we had everything we needed. Our room was AMAZING! I am one to check cleanliness of things, as I am a tad OCD and I couldnt find one speck of dust in our room! The sheets smelled wonderful, the towels were super soft and the place was perfectly decorated. Tons of space in our room and the bed was a dream! The next morning we woke up to the smell of breakfast cooking downstairs. Went down early and had coffee on the balcony with a GORGEOUS view. It was breathtaking! Jim made a homecooked breakfast which was so delicious. Every morning we had a different dish and each morning I was just as impressed. He never let us down on that home cookin! You get to eat breakfast looking at the side of a snow covered mountain! No hotel can give you that!
The whole lodge was roomy and had many places to just sit and relax, all with a view. We didnt get to enjoy his dinner or wine in the evening as we were out and about, but I heard nothing but great things from the other guests.
Jim and Kona (the lodge pet) were very friendly. Jim gave us many suggestions on things to do in town and around the area. He was more than helpful with ANY questions we had. Kona was just a joy! She and our daughter got along just great and they played all morning out in the snow. She is such a smart and friendly dog!
Before we left, Jim took us on a personal guided tour up the mountain to an old mine and blacksmith shop, Kona also helped lead the way! Never have I had such personal attention from an owner of a B&B. He took us ot the top of the mountain (in the snow!) and told us many interesting facts along the way.
Silver Lake Lodge is close to many different places to visit, St Mary's Glacier, numerous hikes, waterfalls, Georgetown Train Ride, great places to eat, micro brewery, shopping. Its far enough out to make you feel like you are 'away' but close enough to enjoy many fun activites.
I honestly can not say enough wonderful things about Jim and his lodge. There was nothing at all that I could say bad about this place. If you are coming to town, you must stay here. Its top of the line rooms with top of the line service. You will feel as part of the family staying here.

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite which was very nice. Two rooms, balcony, big bathroom and GREAT view. However...

This property is amazing and comfortable in every way. The views in every room are awesome, the decor is beautiful and the bedrooms are exquisite. I also cannot say enough good things about Jim. He is absolutely wonderful and engaging. His willingness to help is perfect without being overbearing or intrusive in any way. He knows the area and is a great resource. Best of all, Jim is a fabulous cook. Do not miss out on one of his dinners. It is so easy to feel at home at Silver Lake Lodge.

From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. The accommodations are wonderful, from the dining and lounge areas to the extremely comfortable and beautifully designed bedrooms. Jim is an amazing host and innkeeper, full of genuine warmth and wonderful conversation. The meals were superb. We will definitely return to this gem of a lodge.

Jim, who was our host, chef, concierge and every other position, provided excellence in every aspect. From making our reservation, preparing culinary delights, making a fire in the fireplace to keeping the lodge spotless, Jim was great. Lunch & dinner is optional but the dinners definitely should not be missed. Dinner for 2 including soup or salad, choice of entrée, a glass of wine & desert was $75.

Room Tip: The "Fitness center" is the natural trails all around the lodge. We stayed in the Timberli...

We spent almost a week here and it wasn't enough! There is not enough to say:
Service - excellent
food - just.. WOW
Rooms - fantastic
Relaxation - great

Such a fantastic place to relax, and get away from the city and everyday life. We'll be back!!!

My stay at Silver Lake Lodge was one of the most relaxing times for me in recent years. I spent Thanksgiving there and I truly gave thanks for the time at the lodge. My room was fantastic. The bed was especially to die for, it was so comfortable. And the private bath in my room was like being at home in my own master bedroom. I highly recommend the Silver Lake Lodge and am looking forward to my next visit.
P.S. Breakfast was outstanding and Jim was a gracious host!
