Let’s start a dialogue.




We don’t announce our movies prior to booking, but know that they are being carefully curated. Once you book, we’ll tell you what is playing. If you are traveling with kids or have special ratings requirements, please reach out to our staff in advance of booking at

We love cooking with friends and family, and the Frontier was designed to facilitate communal meals. If you’d like to cook during your stay, you can pre-book a kitchen box which includes utensils, plates, cups, bowls, and cooking supplies, along with your reservation. You will receive the padlock code to your box at check-in. All of this happens in our Snack Bar which has tables and bar seating to eat at. You’ll need to bring all of your food and beverage, and we have refrigerators for you to store it in.

Please clean cooking tools and utensils before loading your box at the end of your trip. Any missing items at the end of your stay will be charged back to the credit card on file. We will be having weekends that are curated with chefs too, so watch out for those.

Popcorn, of course, is free at all film screenings.

Yes, the Frontier loves dogs. It is an additional $25 fee per dog, with a maximum of two dogs per room. Please be aware that our booking system keeps a copy of your credit card on file, and that any damage due to pets will be charged back to the guest.

The Frontier does not offer daily housekeeping. If you need something, please reach out to our staff.

We grew up exploring all the San Luis Valley has to offer as children—and we are excited to welcome the next generation of kids to this magical place! Frontier Drive-Inn is excited to welcome guests of all ages. Be sure to check with our staff for a copy of our film schedule in advance of your booking; family-friendly weekends will feature only G-rated films. Staff will be happy to provide more information about film ratings on other weekends upon request.

Yes! We have a generous parking lot. Our loop-style fire road makes it easy for guests to drop heavy suitcases in their rooms, and then park overnight in the designated parking area.

Our Steelmaster rooms have an en-suite bathroom. Guests staying in our yurts have a shared, spa-like restroom facilities at the center of each yurt “pod,” which have two showers and two bathrooms each, plus generous sink space. Shower and toilet facilities are fully private and enclosed.

Are you kidding? We have the biggest TV in Southern Colorado right outside your door. And very strong WiFi if you want to stream shows outside of screening hours.

Please see our guide to the San Luis Valley for our favorite local dining and activities. You’ll also find the closest grocery stores, pharmacies, and other essentials.

The Frontier Drive Inn is a non-smoking facility.
