The collection of keys is vast and quite interesting. So much detail here, you can spend more time than you might think "just looking at keys." Fun!!

“Delicious but expensive”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Really delicious soup and salad bar (that is all they serve) but pricey for just soup and salad. Service was prompt and helpful. The area is beautiful and I loved the hummingbirds feeding outside the window.

“Walk Back in Time”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The Baldpate is truly a gem that is tucked away South of Estes Park near Lilly Lake. The old Inn is a definite walk back in time. The food is good and the pie is GREAT. You have to spend some time here to soak it in. The key collection is a story all of it's own.

The pictures in the Inn were taken by one of the Mace family and you can spend hours looking at them. It's a little known secret and worth the time.

“History, Views, Keys, Soup, and Salad”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

This unique place is perfect for history, travel, and literature buffs. Great photos of many famous people, the story of the its name, the architecture, and keys are worth the trip. It was very enjoyable.

My younger children loved the humming birds and the old building. They got bored with the keys and history within a few minutes.

I give it a three because the food was over sold as award winning. The soup was good, but not blow my socks off good. The bread was very good. The salad bar was average. The price though was very reasonable. The service from our waiter was excellent. He was from Turkey and it was great to talk to him about his American experience.
