Ski Tip Lodge Review

Opened as a stop along the stagecoach route back in the 1880s, this property was turned into the state's first ski lodge in the 1940s by skiing pioneers Max and Edna Dercum. The rooms in this charming log cabin have been given quaint names like "Edna's Eyrie." Homespun furnishings and such accessories as quilts and hand-knitted throw rugs, make each unit distinct. Some rooms have dramatic four-poster beds. In winter you can relax in the sitting room in front of a wood-burning fireplace. In summer, retreat to the patio for a view of the surrounding mountains. A delicious breakfast is included in the room rate.
