This could be a really nice place but it needs a lot of work. The carpet in the Tall Pines cabin was totally disgusting. Having to vacuum this nasty carpet prior to departure makes no sense. It should be ripped out and some type of solid flooring put in. The cabin seems to be out in the middle of the woods but the road noise reminds you that isn't so. The bathroom was workable but very small, probably the smallest sink I have ever seen. The kitchen appiances were quite old, been a long time since I've seen a single door refrige / freezer model. The oven door was so hard to open you could not do it with one hand. The area is nice and the views from the porch and walking around the cabin were fabulous. Loved the hummingbirds!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We began as a base camp for miners back in the heyday of Colorado's mining boom and today we are a quiet get-away nestled in National Forest at the base of Colorado's highest peak. Step out of today's hectic world into a quieter time at Mt. Elbert Lodge. We have no TVs, radios or phones in our comfortable housekeeping cabins; we do have a front row seat to the Colorado Rockies. ... more less
