May 31st

Now there is that Colorado bluebird sky that we've all been waiting for! We are staying high and dry from the roaring mountain rivers and it's looking like such an incredibly beautiful day over the valley here from The Baldpate Inn. What better way to end your morning bike ride, hike or scenic drive through the mountains with a belly full of our always fresh soup and salad buffet. Today we are featuring our house recipe White Chili along with a light Tomato Rice soup.
ALSO (drum roll please) we our proud to announce that scheduling for our Summer Enchanted Evenings and Key-thedral Theater is finally underway with several show dates already announced.

Raving Comments

Today we had many customers come in and tell us after they finished they're meals about our stupendous staff!! As some of you may already know most of our staff consists of college interns who are interested in either hospitality or other related fields that pertain to they're future careers.  Not only this, but our staff is overly excited to be in Estes Park, Colorado to enjoy all Estes has to offer them. The soups for today are Beef Stew and Cream of Mushroom along with our two muffins Apple Raisin Spice and Dill Zucchini.  Everything at The Baldpate Inn today has been scrumptious so come on in before the days done.

No sun? No problem.

After that little taste of summer sunshine the clouds are back and we've got rain in today's forecast, which can only mean one thing. It's the perfect day to enjoy a couple bowls of warm and hearty soup here at The Baldpate Inn! Today our menu features a wonderfully chunky Beef Stew and an incredible Cream of Mushroom Soup to pair with Cherry Sass Salad, Marshmallow Pecan Fruit Salad and a fresh Garden Vegetable Salad. As always, we have been baking up a cornbread storm all morning along with a several batches of tantalizing specialty muffins that you all just might have to come and check out for yourselves.

The first weekend of the season is going great for everybody here at The Baldpate Inn! We've got a pleasant Sunday morning here in Estes Park and we would be overjoyed to share it with you.

Swing by our dining room today to fill up on our incredible Cowboy Buffalo and Cream of Mushroom soups and don't forget a serving of Apple Cinnamon or Gazpacho Salad to go along with a few pieces of cornbread (as always). Reservations are never required but always appreciated by our staff so call and make yours before we fill up!

May 24th, 2014

2014 Opening day at The Baldpate Inn was a total success. It was so great to have so many new and familiar faces stop in to dine and lodge with us. Today looks to be another big day as we expect to be fully booked for lodging reservations to go along with tons of reservations in the dining room. Today's menu features Red Chili and Garden Vegetable soup with our special Banana Butterscotch muffins. Come on up and enjoy the view!

Hello Future Guests!

After countless hours of tireless work, the hummingbirds are beginning to make their appearances and a beautiful opening day of the 2014 season at The Baldpate Inn is upon us. We couldn't be happier that the Inn has come together like it has after suffering such a setback through the devastating floods this past September. Our staff has been tortured for the past 24 hours with the smells lingering throughout the lodge from the kitchen door. Today's menu: a hearty beef stew and creamy broccoli cheddar soup to go along with our usual fresh salad buffet and, of course, the world's greatest cornbread and pie. The dining room will be opening in less than2 hours (11:30 a.m.) and check-in for lodging reservations may begin anytime after 2:00 p.m. Come on up to enjoy a glass of our wide selection of beer and wine with lunch or dinner on our elegant sun porch. We can't wait to see all of your beautiful faces!

Cleaning Frenzy

Hello Everyone,

This is Jeff & Courtney here part of the front desk team at the Baldpate Inn! We just wanted to say how excited we are to be opening in two days!! Everything here is going great and we are about to finish the last of the details here. As you could imagine it was a little difficult this year because of the flood last fall that made everything a bit muddy and messy... We hope that if you see anything we missed that you let us know so we can fix it as soon as possible. Anyway, we've had many reservations for our dining room, rooms, and cabins already so we hope you call before it's too late to get in on the fun here at the Baldpate Inn.

Opening day Friday May 23rd, 11:30 Dining room. Call today! :)
