2021 Season OPEN NOW

We are currently open for booking for the 2021 Summer/Fall Season. Come stay with us!

about us

We are Robert and Ginny Burroughs, who have enjoyed the hospitality of David and Rosie Whitelock as guests of the Inn at the Lake over the past 16 years. We could not bear the thought of this place being bought up by a big commercial operation, so we have chosen to invest our lives into carrying on their mission of providing warm and inviting hospitality to whomever walks through our doors. If you should decide to be our guest, we hope that you instantly recognize that

this place is special.

There really is no place like it...


The Inn at the Lake is a cozy mountain retreat situated a few steps from Lake San Cristobal just outside of Lake City, Colorado. The Inn reflects the charm of a mountain lodge, and each of our ten rooms pays tribute to the best of the region with stunning views of the lake and the mountains beyond.


The Inn at the Lake lies in the San Juan Mountain range - home to multiple 14ers, the Alpine Loop and Lake San Cristobal. This is a premier destination for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy hiking, fishing, and four-wheeling. Lake City, Colorado is known for its classic charm and is the perfect place to unplug and reconnect. Whether you're looking for a quiet getaway or a fun adventure, there is no shortage of things to do here.

Inn at the Lake

Come join us in the beautiful log lodge where much of the action takes place at the Inn. Regardless of the weather outside, this cavernous room is filled with the aroma of fresh coffee, the guitar or piano ringing out melodies, and the laughter of folks engaging in their stories, giggling, or playing board games.

You will experience one of the most spectacular views in the world while sitting in beautiful log furniture on the deck looking out over Lake San Cristobal at the Continental Divide skyline with peaks surpassing 13,000 feet.
