Boulder Twin Lakes Inn

When you think of bed and breakfasts or a Colorado inn, you typically think of an old renovated house in the historic district or lodge.  Boulder has redefined this notion with its Boulder Twin Lakes Inn.  Finding it somewhere in between an inn and a hotel, Boulder Twin Lakes Inn incorporates the best of both.

Why It is Popular

Proving that sometimes bigger is better, the Boulder Twin Lakes Inn hosts an impressive 33 rooms to choose from.  Built in 1985, Twin Lakes has been providing Colorado vacationers and visitors to Boulder for 32 years.  In those 32 years, the Inn has hosted everyone from Joe Six-Pack to world class running teams with up to thirty members.

With this many people coming through over the years, it makes one wonder what keeps them coming back.  One of the answers for this is its location.  Situated in the quiet neighborhood of Twin Lakes/Gunbarrel in northeast Boulder, Twin Lakes offers access to not just plush rooms, but to a number of walking and running trails as well as a number of community parks and recreation areas.

Its location also serves as a launching point for numerous other activities that draw vacationers to Colorado; such as cycling, skiing, kayaking, hiking, and rock climbing.

Another draw of the Inn is its hosts, Binesh and Nadia.  These two bring new meaning to the old saying “sometimes it’s the people that make the difference,” as Binesh and Nadia are not only the keepers but members of the illustrious club of sports massage therapists.  So whether you are looking to unwind in peace and quiet or are looking to take part in Boulder’s 10k on Memorial Day Binesh and Nadia will make sure your Boulder vacation is a comfortable one.

The Accommodations

One of the aspects that sets Twin Lakes apart from the other inns and bed and breakfasts in the Boulder area is the number of rooms that are offered.  When it comes to traditional B&Bs, you’d be pretty lucky to find one that has more than eight rooms.  Twin Lakes on the other hand breaks that mold with its 33 rooms.  Out of the 33 rooms offered there are varying types of bed options for Boulder overnighters to choose from.

Hot Tub Twin Lakes
The inn has a gazebo-enclosed hot tub where guests can unwind after a long day.

While all 33 rooms share similar features, such as a private kitchenette, microwave, refrigerator, and the same gold, red, white and brown color scheme, guests can choose from several different options when it comes to bedding accommodations.

Boulder vacationers can choose from rooms that have one queen size bed, a room with a king size bed, a room with two queen size beds and a sleeper sofa, or if you’re lucky, the one room that has a full kitchen.

Despite most having personal kitchenettes, the Inn also has a communal kitchen that comes complete with a full refrigerator, two dual range stoves, and a dishwasher for patrons to take full advantage of.  In addition to the massage expertise of Binesh and Nadia, the inn also has a gazebo-enclosed hot tub where guests can loosen up and unwind after a long day.
