Spring 2017

We keep trying to convince winter to move on but now we have snow forecast for this evening.  Ice is out on the Twin Lakes and other signs of spring are popping up but, as we know, snow can still be a part of this flighty season.  Come see us soon.

USA Pro Cycling Challenge

We are excited that the race will be coming right by our front door but also want to be sure all of our guests know that Hwy 82/Independence Pass will be closed from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. race day.  That means on the 24th guests that want to go out for the day need to leave before 11 a.m. and plan not to return till after 4 p.m.  Of course if you stay at the lodge that day you will have a grand place to watch all the action.  We will try and have the parking area such that you can bring a chair from your cabin and sit along the road.  I am disappointed my plans will take me to New Mexico that day and I'll miss all the fun.  More information on the road closure.

Happenings in Twin Lakes

Twin Lakes is looking like summer as usual with a couple of noticeable changes this year.  Things that are the same:  The General Store is open and ready to help everyone with last minute needs, fishing licenses, gifts, stamps and all that a good old fashion General Store should have.  The local artist's coop, The Shooting Star Gallery, is open for the summer with their eclectic collection of beautiful and fun creations and the visitor's center at the Red Rooster will again be manned by local volunteers.
Things different:  We have no restaurant in town now.  The Nordic/Black Wolf is unoccupied at this moment and the Windspirit Restaurant has opted to turn their restaurant into more lodging.  The General Store is working with the health department to get licensed to have a soup and sandwich spot in the store, one of the chefs formerly with the Windspirit will do the cooking.  He and June are doing everything they can to make it so travelers will be able to find refreshments in Twin Lakes.  Visitors can order catered goodies from Gourmet foods by Kate, Twin Lakes CO.
