Centrally located and closer than you think

You’ll feel a world away from city life, but our four-season destination is just 100 miles from Denver and 130 miles from Colorado Springs—a one-tank trip that’s easy on the budget and on the eyes. All the highways in Lake County are part of the Top of the Rockies Scenic and Historic Byway, one of the most beautiful drives in all of Colorado—if not the country.

Charming downtown

Harrison Avenue and the streets in downtown Leadville are lined with Victorian architecture, specialty shops, antique stores, restaurants, museums and galleries. Check out locally made foods, clothing and artwork. Dining runs the gamut from a quick bite to a relaxing meal to slowly savor with friends and family.
