Located in Grand Lake, Colorado, our non-profit lodge and retreat center provides rustic, welcoming accommodations where connection to people, place, and contemplation come naturally. Our distinctly unique feel has been described as reminiscent of summer camp, joyfully warm, and peacefully rustic. We are open from Memorial Day to the end of September.

Situated walking distance from both the town and Rocky Mountain National Park, we offer a variety of accommodations with amazing views surrounded by a quiet, peaceful environment:

  • Fully-equipped cabins ideal for families and small groups;
  • Comfortable, relaxing private guest rooms in our two lodges with shared gender-specific bathrooms and private showers.
  • Continental Divide Trail (CDT) thru-hikers welcome. Ask for our special rates.
