“Expectations Exceeded”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

My wife and I were driving from Aspen to Colorado Springs. We pulled off the road at Twin Lakes to stretch our legs and admire the natural beauty of the location. Since it was lunch time we surveyed the dining situation there in town. With low expectations we walked over to the Twin Lakes Inn to read the posted menu hoping for at least for a half decent burger. The hotel receptionist informed us that we could sit outside and our little dog was welcome.

To shorten this review I'll say that our expectations were greatly exceeded. Our waiter was friendly and laid back. The big surprise was the high quality of the food we were served. My wife had a gourmet roasted tomato soup, and a turkey sandwich on homemade bread that were both delicious. I had a tuna salad sandwich on a homemade baguette with a house salad that was excellent. We shared an order of truffle fries that were as good as any we have eaten in Aspen or elsewhere.

The menu had many more enticing items that we did not sample but would love to return to try in the future. I'm not sure about the other review posted here but our experience was nothing short of excellent. Again, we were very pleasantly surprised! My compliments to the chef and staff!

This our second stay and both times have been great. Friendly staff, comfortable accommodations, and even delicious food. Can't beat the location or price, either. The history of the building only adds to the charm.

This quaint inn (more like an upscale B&B) was fantastic. My son and I had room #14 and it was like being at home. We'd get out of bed, open the door and the kitchen was 10 steps away...so cool. The food was fabulous and the service was too notch. Twin Lakes is right across the street where we caught 6 fish in a few hours - so fun.

We will definitely stay again and I've already told my friends about this place.

We loved the personal attention and attention to the smallest of details. The food as A1 and the staff so helpful and friendly. Celebrated our sons birthday and received special attention. Can't wait to go back to relax and enjoy fantastic food and scenery

It truly was a hidden gem. I was so excited to have just happened upon it. The staff would have to be my favorite part. They were so accommodating and knowledgable about the area. Second favorite was the location and beautiful scenery, you can ride your bike around the lake or just sit out and enjoy your morning coffee. What a wonderful experience. Thank you!

A delightful and unexpected gem! Valerie made us feel like we were old friends returning as soon as we walked in. Excellent service continued with Ken at dinner. Matt even made time to take a break from the kitchen to talk with us. Sonia and Eric were just as delightful taking care of us in the morning. Love that it's a TV-free zone in the room. We cut short out stay in Vail to enjoy the Inn's hospitality again and gorgeous location. We will be back!
