You may have exclusive use of the Hotel
for $20 per person per night and minimum of 25 people


Family Groups love holidays here. Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, any excuse for a few days away with family and friends!  There is always something happening in the Quartz Creek Valley area of Colorado.

Snowmobile, bicycle and ATV groups can ride their vehicles from the Hotel to the National Forest. 

Wedding parties love our picturesque church and receptions in the new Pitkin Recreation Center.  The out-of-town guests enjoy staying in the Hotel. If there is exclusive use, they love visiting together before returning home.

Cross-Country ski groups can put their skis on at the Hotel and ski around Pitkin, or out to Cumberland Pass Road at the edge of town. 

Church groups feel right at home here. Our church is open from Memorial Day until Labor Day, and also on Christmas Eve. 

Do you have family living from one side of the country to the other, making it difficult or impossible to spend quality time together?  Get your extended family together in one beautiful, affordable place and enjoy a non-commercial Christmas; buy your own tree and decorate it with homemade decorations. As you walk to Church on Christmas Eve the stars shine so bright that it seems as though you could touch them. 


The Hotel is listed on the Colorado Historical Register and the Gunnison County Register as a Historical Building.  When the Hotel was built in 1904 Teddy Roosevelt was President.  Many people believe he stayed here.  There is a Roosevelt Park and a Roosevelt Mine just a few miles from Pitkin.

And from our front porch, the Continental Divide can be seen 12 miles above Pitkin at 12,300 feet above sea level.  You can stand on the continental divide and have a spectacular view. The Alpine Tunnel is only 13 miles from the Hotel. Wanita Hot Springs is 11 miles from us and is now open to the public.  Gunnison, Crested Butte, and Blue Mesa Lake are a short drive.

Pitkin has 300 sunshine days (same as Florida) without the humidity and heat. The Hotel, being made of stone, is especially cool in summer.


There are activities going on year round in Pitkin Pitkin Days are the last weekend in July. All the Old Timers come back for a day of reminiscing at the town potluck. Children under 12 have a fishing contest at their own fishing pond. 

Join our tiny forth of July Parade or watch from the hotel porch.  The town has a cookout and dance that night to raise money for the Fire Department.  Everyone is invited and everyone brings a dish or makes a donation.


Double Bed Room Twin Bed Room

We have rooms with double beds, twin beds, and bunks. 
Our Bunkroom can sleep 20 people and has two bathrooms,
a refrigerator, and microwave.
If you really must have a TV to watch that ballgame, we can provide that also. 

Twin Room Bunk Room
There is a large fully furnished kitchen. You may cook your meals here and serve them in the Dining area.  Just be sure to clean up afterwards.

What fun to put your turkey in the oven on Thanksgiving morning and come back after skiing to the aroma. 

And Halloween parties here are such fun at the Hotel!



Wish you could get everyone away from computers and TVs,
and get them out into nature?

If you wish to have exclusive use of the hotel, please call and make your reservation early. Groups are given first priority and individuals can come when we have no groups.  An upfront, non-refundable fee is required to hold space for you. 

The hotel can accommodate 40 people, but you can have exclusive use with a group of 20 people for as little as $15 per person per night.  We prefer you stay a minimum of 2 nights, but can make exceptions for a motorcycle or tour group passing through.

Leashed dogs are welcome in town, and well-behaved dogs are welcome in the Hotel.

We do not take credit cards, but accept checks. Once your check has cleared, we can insure your reservation.
