Opening Weekend Recap

As we bring to a close our first full weekend in operation for the 2015 season, and in the spirit of the Memorial Day holiday, we here at The Baldpate Inn would like to take a moment to express our gratitude to all those who served their country and made the ultimate sacrifice.


That said, this weekend found the staff hopping busy and thankful that so many folks chose to spend their hard-earned time off with us.

We had a great opening day as well as several busy lunch and dinner shifts throughout the weekend.  That doesn't mean we aren't looking forward to seeing you in the near future; only looking forward to better serving you!

Please call to make reservations at 970-586-KEYS (5397) or stop in to see us!

Fueling for the Weekend

Greetings from The Baldpate Inn.  We are happy to report that our opening weekend is off to a great start with plenty of pies and tasty treats just waiting for your arrival.

We'd like to encourage you to enjoy our hearty, home-cooked soups before you indulge in a sweet treat, however, since we think they're the best way to recharge your batteries after that morning or afternoon hike.  But don't worry, if you fill up before dessert we'll have that slice of pie ready for you to take home.

So come on in today and enjoy either our vegan-friendly garden vegetable or our hearty red chili as both will give you plenty of energy for all of your weekend adventures.

Give us a call at 970.586.KEYS (5397) or simply stop by for that afternoon pick-me-up.  We can't wait to see you!

Your Friendly Front-Desk Associate, Kate

Opening Day

Greetings from The Baldpate Inn!  We finally made it to opening day and we couldn't be more pleased with the turnout thus far.

We currently have our Pumpkin Curry and Beef Stew on offer as well as our usual salad fixings.

Oh, and we would be remiss if we forgot to mention all the DELICIOUS pies we have for you this afternoon and evening.  So please swing on in for a slice to kick off your Memorial Day celebrations.

Reservations strongly encouraged, but not necessary at 970.586.5397.

3 Reasons to Stay at The Baldpate Inn

We here at The Baldpate Inn are admittedly a little biased when it comes to recommending you stay with us during your vacation or weekend getaway to beautiful Estes Park, Colorado.  So why book that room, suite, or cabin with us today?  Here are three reasons that we hope will persuade you to book your stay with us this summer and fall:

1.  We offer the perfect balance between relaxing getaway, outdoor adventure, and all-you-can-eat fare that won't leave you wanting.  It's a one-stop shop!

2.  Our vacation packages are unique to the history of the lodge, which is celebrating its 98th year.  Book now!

3.  We offer all the amenities of a modern inn (e.g. WiFi, delicious breakfast, etc.), but with charming accommodations where no two rooms are the same.

We are booking reservations for the entire season (May 22, 2015 through October 15, 2015) on our website as well as at 1-970-586-KEYS (5397).

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Spring in the Rockies.

Call now, reservations are always recommended. 970.586.KEYS or 970.586.5397.

Come for the Views...Stay for the Food!

Did you know that The Baldpate Inn is only seven miles south of Estes Park, Colorado, along Highway 7?

That's only 90 minutes from Denver!

Estes Park is one of the most well-known mountain towns on the Front Range and is, by and large, your best bet for access to Rocky Mountain National Park. This destination location on your way toward great views offers a wide assortment of restaurants and shops. Despite the vast number of options for food and fare in downtown Estes, the village maintains a close-knit, small-town feel due to the wonderful partnerships between many of the local business owners.

That said, The Baldpate Inn encourages you to enjoy all that Estes Park has to offer, but to please consider taking in those same views alongside a fantastic buffet, all-day dining options, and unique accommodations here just a few miles south on Highway 7.

We are taking reservations as we speak for local stays and quick dining adventures at 1-970-586-KEYS (5397).

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
