Not many natural lakes in Colorado. Any lake of a decent size is probably a reservoir, which of course deplete during summer sending water to the Front Range.

To have 70's-80's only in the hottest part of summer you should aim for above 7500 feet.

Not a huge amount of antiquing and all that going on in the Rockies, but I'm sure you can find the odd store. Most of the population and development in the mountains is "new" in that it's all been built in the past 50 years, with the exception of a few mining towns.

If you want the scene with nice places to eat and biking, Vail, Beaver Creek and Aspen will fit the bill. As I said before there are plenty of furnished condos and apartments to rent for a whole summer.

Estes Park is great in the Summer. Vibrant Downtown with cool restaurants, watching wildlife on Lake Estes, Mild weather, Stanley Hotel and Rocky Mountain National Park not far away at all!
