Twin Lakes for fresh air and Rocky Mountain wilderness

Escape to the tranquil natural scenery of Twin Lakes, in Lake County, Colorado, a sparsely populated and immensely peaceful tree-studded mountain landscape, grouped around 2 shimmering freshwater lakes. Twin Lakes lies on the foothills of the wild and rolling Rocky Mountains, and the snow-crowned peak of Mount Elbert – the highest point in all the Rockies – towers over the area. Twin Lakes vacation rentals include premier family-sized cabins, luxury lodges, old-world granite houses and cozy romantic cottages – almost all of which boast sweeping views over the vast and wild Lake County landscape.

Things to do

Catch some Colorado heritage near Twin Lakes

If you’re craving some Colorado history, take a drive away from your Twin Lakes vacation rental and visit Leadville, a tiny but dynamic city – formerly a mining town – 25 miles north of the lakes. Discover the Leadville Historic District, where a treasure trove of architectural marvels awaits. The Temple Israel, built in 1884 in a Carpenter Gothic style with white-painted timber slats, is an incredibly rare example of a frontier-era synagogue. The 1880 Annunciation Church boasts a needle-sharp timber steeple, while the elegant Healy House, built in 1878, hosts a period museum which documents Leadville’s Victorian heritage.

Weather

Snowy winters welcome skiers

Twin Lakes and all of Lake County experience a subarctic climate, with long and cold winters and short mild summers. In winter, which runs from November through to March, temperatures frequently drop below freezing, and there can be heavy snowfall. Such conditions are prime for skiers and snowboarders, and there are plenty of ski resorts and slopes in and around Lake County. But if you’re booking a Twin Lakes vacation rental as a base for hiking, fishing, and kayaking, travel in summer – June through August – where temperatures surf in the pleasant high 60s and low 70s.

Natural features

Mountain peaks and animal life in Twin Lakes

The Twin Lakes area is grouped around the 2 shimmering glacial lakes themselves – wide and deep bodies of crystal-clear water surrounded by grassy banks and rocky foothills. Mount Elbert lies to the immediate west of Twin Lakes, an ultra-prominent peak – standing at 14,440 feet – kissed with snow, studded with pine, aspen, and spruce trees, and home to black bears, wild turkeys, and even elk. Due to Mount Elbert’s relatively relaxed incline, and the accessibility and short length of the North and South Elbert Trails, Mount Elbert is often referred to as the “gentle giant” of the Rockies.
