Food scene
We like Salto coffee shop for both breakfast and lunch… yummy tacos, decent affordable lunch portions, and bright lofty modern interior with fab outdoor seating. This is a great informal co-work space with rock solid wifi. FYI this is order at the bar and pick up.

The new trendy place is Crosscut Pizza and it’s beautiful inside with awesome seating outside. They have sourdough pizza crust, unique pairings for toppings, and an authentic pizza oven for that wood fired experience. Plenty of gluten free, dairy free and vegan options.

We love the Carousel of Happiness, $1.50 per ride! The story about it is so inspiring and it’s great for all ages, 1-100! there’s a play puppet theater upstairs with window overlooking the carousel; great for young kids. They also installed a sound booth where you can record stories of your life to share. So sweet! They have alternating winter/summer hours so check their website for current hours.

it’s like going back in time 150 years; & Always will have a special place in my heart as both my daughters were born there <3. The general store is a gem of a cafe (& bar now), and the town museum is open weekends till 4 in the summer. The Gold Hill Inn (open May-December) serves award winning food in 3 or 6 course meals and amazing local and national artists focusing on bluegrass, blues and country. Sunday afternoons are a special treat as they serve an “ala carte” menu in the bar and free music from 4-7. The adjoining Bluebird Lodge is open summers and offers murder mysteries (with meal from the gold hill inn kitchen). Check goldhillinn.com website for reservations, music lineup and murder mysteries

Hot Springs
The closest hot springs is only 40 minutes away in Idaho Springs. We love the Indian Hot Springs with its indoor pool surrounded by greenery and plants. The (clothing optional) adult caves are very therapeutic. It’s a long-standing family run business and is a bit run down and dated but still a gem in our eyes!

Hiking
We love Panorama Point! in Golden Gate State Park (you’ll pay entry depending on time of year) has a beautiful circular route with well marked trails. They have a visitors center with maps and info at Reverends End Campground, though we also keep a brochure in the guesthouse for you to reference.
Hessie Junction is a bit of an Indian peaks Mecca with so many hikers on the weekends they do a free shuttle. To ge to the trailhead you go through the sweet little town of Eldora. The most common is up to lost lake and back; which if you find the river trail is a sweet easy hike.

Brainard Lake is a still relatively less travelled entry point into the Indian Peaks (say compared to Estes Park or Hessie). And the views don’t disappoint, as you’re starting at 10,000 feet. Lake Isabelle is a favorite and closest, and for those up for a longer hike; keep going to Buchanan Pass and the Divide for breathtaking views. Entry fees apply.

Rainbow lakes is a bit less well known and offers an easy 4 mile (total) in and out along a series of lakes. A 30-35 min drive from the house but . Also the same trailhead you can take Araphaoe Glacier Trail for a a more serious hike worth rewarding views of the Indian peaks, all the way up to Araphaoe Pass.

Mud lake is local to Ned and quite pretty circular route great for snowshoeing or easy hiking. There are some hidden gems in an abandoned school bus and some cool sculptures if you go off the beaten track a bit for an adventure.
