Peck House Review
About a 10-minute drive from either Georgetown or Idaho Springs via I–70, this red-roof inn in Empire is Colorado's oldest continually operating hostelry. The dining room ($$$) is crammed with period antiques, including tinted lithographs and etched-glass shades for the gas lamps that once hung in the state capitol. Game is the house specialty: expertly prepared quail and venison (perfect with the hearty cabernet sauce) are among the standouts. Individually decorated rooms are awash in Victorian splendor.
