The Matterhorn Mountain Motel was a great place to stay! This time of year not much is open in Lake City, but the Matterhorn stays open year round for visitors. Our room was bright and clean, with a cute kitchenette that was fully stocked with...More

Thank you, Holly! You're comments were a very nice Valentine's gift! Certainly not as many folks visit Lake City in the winter as in the summer, but there are enough of us who stay open to make it worthwhile. Visitors experience the town when it's...More

This is a well-restored and preserved 1940's small vacation motel. While the rooms are updated (more electric outlets, new windows) it retains the feel of the 1940's , even the marvelous neon sign! This includes the small bathroom of the era, although the rooms may...More

The neon sign is the original. So amazed every night how it still turns on like clockwork for over 65 years! I wish I knew what the symbol in the middle represents, something worthy I'm sure, which is why it's incorporated into our new logo...More

Rooms overlook the town, convenient to everywhere; staff very responsive to any requests. Onsite owner keeps things taken care of. We plan to stay here again next year when we come for the annual elk hunting season.

We paid extra to book a room with a kitchenette; however, the pilot light wouldn't light. When I rang the doorbell at the main office, I heard a lady yelling at her dogs inside, but she never answered the door. Overall, we were extremely disappointed...More

Dear Guest, this is of course bad news to me. We keep the valves on the stoves turned off for safety when not in use, this was the reason you wouldn't have been able to light them. But I do provide overnight staff to assist...More
