I love the Windspirit Cabins. For me, it is a refuge and a frequent site where I go to unwind, explore and spend the night in a safe, comfortable setting. It is truly a Colorado location: simple, practical, warm, comfortable, and a quiet spot away from the hectic life most of us lead. Colene, the owner is friendly, helpful and flexible. I love that I can take my dog too, which makes the trip even better because I don't worry about leaving my dog behind with daycare.
The cabins are just right. They are crazy clean, the linens are always fresh and the space is always immaculate. It's not fancy, and it isn't billed as being that so again, it's true Colorado. The space is small but there is a kitchen and a small refrigerator, which is a huge bonus.
The Twin Lakes Inn is open again and they serve amazing lunches and dinners so that is an added bonus. The lakes are spectacular and the hiking in the area is incredible. An easy hike takes you back to the old Interlocken resort, an abandoned vacation destination that you can see across the lake. Two attempts this year to climb Mt. Elbert have been postponed due to severe weather which is a good thing because that means I will have to go back to Windspirit again!
There are times in my life when I want everything on a trip to be an adventure. There are times when I want nothing to be an adventure, and there are times when I want both. For those times where I want adventure and then solid, dependable experience at night, there is The Windspirit. I can explore and take risks all day long and then find my solitude and my comfort at the Windspirit Cabins. I love them. I can't say enough about them, and obviously I will return again, and again, and again. Thanks so much for keeping them in such wonderful shape.
