The Place to go in Boulder
But then, I'm very biased as we have never stayed anywhere else. Our family has been going to the Lodge for 13 years now, and our latest trip - just my wife and I - was in July 2020. We stayed in the family suite/cabin off of the large lawn area and we were duly impressed with the accomodations. Our visit was during the height of Covid and we could not have been happier. Staff was excellent, as always, the food at Hell's Backbone was excellent, as always, and the exploration of the canyon country was superb. Can't wait to go back again.

Fantastic in all respects
This is just an amazing and wonderful place. One our favorites and we try to make it every year. Beautiful grounds, lovely rooms, peaceful and relaxing. It’s also wonderful we can bring the pups along and lots of open space for walking. And too it off with one of the beat restaurants in the country. You can’t beat this. And Mother Nature provides magnificent scenery all around

Wifi too slow to use
I stayed here for several days, which was a mistake because the "free wi-fi" was too slow to use except during the hours of 11 am to 3 pm, which is when 99% of the guests are gone. The owners haven't figured out that if they want people to stay more than one night, usable wi-fi is essential. I noticed almost all the other guests cleared out after one night. In case the owners are reading this, the reason we travelers are able to take longer trips is because we are now able to check in via wi-fi, on our businesses, children, pet sitters, etc. Without that access, the bulk of your guests (including me) will not be staying longer than one night in the future. If the wi-fi had been functional, I would have given this a 5 star review, because it's a pleasant place and is a fair value for the money.

peaceful and pleasant
We planned an entire road trip from Phoenix in order to eat at next door Hell's Backbone Grill. Given the fact that I bet many guests are there for the same reason, the lodge staff seems a bit ambivalent about the restaurant being there, and couldn't even tell us what time they opened. Room was not ready when we got there at 330 but that was okay since we raced across the lawn to wait in line for first seating at HBG at 4. We had an upstairs room -- it was huge! good kitchenette, really comfy beds. nice balcony with a beautiful view, but the man in the next room who shared the balcony made it clear he did not want me out there. Like every other hotel we stayed at, not enough electrical outlets. Not crazy about sink in the room as if someone has to use it in the middle of the night it wakes the other guest. We wouldn't spring for the more expensive upstairs room again, as all the rooms have great views and hauling our luggage up the stairs was a bit much for us. If you find yourself on Highway 12 (which you should) and eat at Hell's Backbone Grill (which you should) stay here. It was pleasant.

It was a long drive from the Roaring Fork Valley in Colorado. We enjoyed the extra large room and the grounds of the lodge. Refrigerator and ice upon check in was helpful. There is a very nice outdoor hot tub which our group of 4 enjoyed. I would have given it a five is the restaurant was open for dinner and breakfast before we left to be fair. It was more than I usually pay for a place due to its room size and remoteness but very nice and comfy!
