The Main Lodge
Built by Denver architect Jared Morse in the 1960's, the original building was a one story horseshoe style hacienda embracing a courtyard/patio facing Sleeping Ute Mountain. Over the years a second story was added for guest rooms. We have four guest rooms in the lodge ( all on the second story.)
The first floor of The Lodge has our kitchens, a cozy bar (wine and beer) an open fireplace, as well as a generous library with local maps and guides, history, art history and archeology of the Southwest as well as fiction and a collection of Beat poetry. Our office is located on the first floor as well.
The second story houses our guest rooms. We have four room upstairs, all freshly remodeled. All of our remodel choices have been informed by sustainability:
-soft eco marmoleum/cork floors
-clay paint or 0% voc paint
-locally harvested cedar trim with beeswax
-heat pumps for quiet cooling and heating.
-water saving fixtures
-glass mineral wool insulation
Our sheets are 100% cotton, as are our towels. We use non-toxic cleaning agents and no chemical scents.
Each room has its own en-suite bathroom with a shower. We offer an outside drying line for sun treatment of wet towels during your stay.
