A drive-in becomes a drive-inn

It’s time to take a retreat to a remote San Luis Valley, Colorado setting where you can see stars on screen, with stars overhead.


Every one of our rooms is uniquely its own. When you’re looking for a glamping getaway, our selection of luxe Yurts and en-suite Steelmaster rooms have both comfort and cool.


Our lodging is in rooms that are two distinct Colorado typologies—yurts and Quonset huts (SMS)—with one-of-a-kind bespoke interiors.


Every Thursday to Saturday from May through October enjoy themed movie weekends under the pristine dark skies.

About the Frontier

Red circular logo that says Center CO, The Frontier Drive-Inn, established 1955.

The magic of our property started in 1955, when the Frontier Drive-In first opened to the public. It was a hit. Re-opened for the first time since 1985, Born Hospitality Group has reinvented the Frontier as a Drive-Inn, welcoming overnight guests to enjoy our favorite place—the San Luis Valley.

A movie and a restful night

This iconic landmark will take you back in time to when life was simpler and when the family trips took the place of today’s technology. Come stay overnight and breathe some very, very fresh air, watch a movie and see the stars under the stars. Gather and cook with family and friends in our chef’s kitchen, and explore and get to know the ecological treasure that is the San Luis Valley. Take a trip back to the simple life.
