Mount Elbert Lodge Cabins10764 E State Hwy 82, Twin Lakes, CO
Mt. Elbert Lodge began as a base camp for a miner with gold claims on Black Cloud Creek, back in the heyday of Colorado's mining boom. Today we are a quiet get-away nestled in SanIsabelNational Forest at the base of Colorado's highest peak. Step out of today's often-hectic world into an earlier time at Mt. Elbert Lodge, where we have few TVs, and no radios or phones in our comfortable, well-kept housekeeping cabins. What we do have is a front row seat to the grandeur of the Colorado Rockies. Gaze out any window at mountains that rise to protect our beautiful high valley and we are sure you'll be entranced. Then step out the door and decide -- is today for hiking to the peaks, wandering the mountain meadows, pursuing your passions for technical rock climbing, mountain biking, river rafting, fishing high mountain lakes and streams, exploring the old mining towns, or just sitting on the porch soaking up the glorious Colorado sun. In the winter, well the spot is the same but you trade your boots for cross-country skis, snowshoes, and ice fishing gear. Please note our access to AspenColorado is not available in the winter.
