  • Introduction

    The Silver Lake Lodge Logo

    Escape to the soaring pines of the Rocky Mountains and find its best kept secret.

    Majestically poised at 10,500 feet, this lofty log lodge welcomes travelers to experience a relaxing retreat at the doorway to all the adventures in a region famous for its history and natural wonders.

    This area is home to the first gold rush in Colorado, and the miners' legacies live on in this hidden nugget tucked between Idaho Springs and St. Mary's Glacier.

    The Silver Lake Lodge is no ordinary bed and breakfast.  It artfully blends warm Colorado hospitality with the rustic luxury you'd expect at a four-star inn.

    Plush, cozy rooms; modern, private baths; gracious, unparalleled service, and mouthwatering mountain fare.

  • The Lodge

    The Silver Lake Lodge Elk Statute

    We call a stay at The Silver Lake Lodge an “experience” for a reason. It is a true Rocky Mountain getaway. With countless things to do and places to explore around the lodge, guests find that it’s the perfect place to decompress. The Silver Lake Lodge is warm, cozy, and has all the comforts of home—if your home was a giant log cabin! We welcome you to enjoy as much time at the lodge as you wish.

    You can be as busy or as quiet as you like! While Colorado has everything you can possibly want to do, you may just want to put your feet up and just stay at the lodge. Jim and the rest of the Lodge Team are the best at tailoring your wishes into reality.

    Enjoy an amazing night’s sleep in one of our beyond-comfortable beds, then roll out and head down to the dining room for a fantastic breakfast.

    Rest by the fire, curl up in one of the overstuffed chairs and read a book, sip some tea, or admire the stunning 180° views in the Fireplace Room.

    Play a game, watch a movie, or take a nap under a furry blanket in our Media Room.

    Spend quality time with your family and friends, and get acquainted with other guests.

    Cuddle up under a blanket on the deck and count the stars come nightfall...we guarantee more than you could ever imagine.

    We would be happy to arrange an in-room massage for you with a certified massage therapist, either a single or couple’s massage. Just let us know!
