Established in 1917 as the Baldpate Inn, the Seven Keys Lodge has become an iconic part of Estes Park’s past. You can get in touch with nature, learn about the park’s history, and breathe fresh air at this seasonal mountain retreat, which is only open in the summertime.
The Lodge is known for its collection of over 30,000 keys in its “key room”, which is an amusing sight while sipping on a cocktail. Pets are not allowed to stay on the property. There are many great things about staying on-site, such as free parking, free Wi-Fi, and cabins.
Summer — Inn Rooms and Cabins
There are 12 bedrooms in the main lodge. Two of them include private bathrooms with showers and clawfoot tubs. Room 1 features a private bathroom with a toilet and no shower. In the remaining rooms, guests used communal restrooms similar to those found in hostels.
