Location: Lots of hiking.
Very rustic. No air conditioning. Smoke from the fire place came up to our room. Not good for allergies.

First bed and breakfast experiencePosted Jul 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
The food was absolutely top notch. Be sure to take advantage of the free breakfast, you will not be disappointed! The staff was very friendly. The rooms were on the small side but the beds were very comfortable. It is an older establishment but it was very well maintained.

Quaint, rustic building with beautiful locationPosted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: Included above under experience
Cons: Can't come up with anything
Location: Included in experience
All of the staff that we experienced were very polite, helpful, and warmly friendly. The room was small but cute, with a fun view out of the window, viewing the city lights of Estes Park in the valley below. However, Estes Park is at over 7,000 feet. The inn is just a short walk away from a beautiful mountain lake that has 2 trails that circle the lake, with views of the snow capped Rockies. The breakfast was so fun. Fruit and muffin, quiche and bacon, huge cinnamon role, coffee, orange juice, and apple juice. And the inn is 10-15 minutes from the entry to Rocky Mountain National Park with Trail Ridge Road which climbs to over 11,000 feet. Many trails to hike including Alberta Falls which is amazing. One staff member Grant, if he is still around, because he is a college student was amazing. Very friendly, enjoyed talking with him, he described each part of our meal, encouraged us to move a cup of coffee that cooled off to another table and he'd be glad to bring a fresh hot cup. One of the staff brought my wife and I full length robes. A staff person at the front desk put had some brochures for us in the morning about activities in the area that we were asking about. So, a good choice. And yes we'd return, accept we live in Oregon 1,000 miles away.

Friendly, great breakfast, near Longs, but oldPosted Sep 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
The staff is great and very helpful, although you need to ring the bell to find anyone. The breakfast can't be beat. They'll cook you a to-go breakfast at any time of the day/night for those who want to be on the mountains early or just want to sleep in. The location is ideal for those who want to go on any of the trails near Longs peak or just avoid the crowd in the town (a lake bypass road get you into Rocky Mountain National Park without entering the Estes Park traffic gridlock on holiday weekends). But, it is an aging historic building. It has character, but it also has very uneven floors, shared showers, out-of-date linens, and creaky beds. The benefits far outweigh the negatives though.

Quaint inn in a beautiful settingPosted Aug 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
This historic inn is a cross between a Swiss chalet and a log cabin. It has a rustic quality but we loved the setting near Rocky Mountain National Park. Our favorite part was reading on the veranda surrounded by hummingbirds. The breakfast was quite good.

Too Rustic?Posted Jul 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
If you are a student of history, there is a lot to like about the Baldpate Inn. The reading room and key room have many interesting bits of history, and the view from the front porch is great. The breakfast we had during our stay was terrific, and the staff was attentive. The downsides for us were the age of the facilities, which showed very clearly. I'm 6'2" and weigh 240 pounds, and the floorboards creeked loudly with every step inside the Inn. Walls were thin and the bed was small and uncomfortable. A mixed bag, and not enough positives relative to the price.
