Interlaken Hotel and Resort


Constructed in 1879, the Interlaken was a popular destination on Twin Lakes. Between 1883 and 1890, Leadville miner James V. Dexter commissioned the construction of a sixteen-horse stable, servants' quarters, a dance pavilion, and numerous landscape improvements, transforming Interlaken from a small hotel to one of Colorado's premier mountain resorts of the early twentieth century. Now maintained by the U.S. Forest Service as a National Historic Site, many of the original buildings have been preserved and allow a glimpse of the past. Accessible by trail or boat.
