Our cabins have been updated and renovated in a rustic mountain lodge style. They feature gas fireplaces, hand-made log beds, and sitting areas.
Each cabin boasts a separate entrance and porch—perfect to sit and watch the elk come down to the meadow in the early mornings or early evenings.
Choose from two, one-bedroom cabins, or one, two-bedroom cabin.
Dine in the historic Southfork Lodge seated in log chairs at wooden tables. Gaze upwards at the antler shed lighting. You are surrounded by praise-worthy mounts and distinct artistry. The bay-style windows allow for year-round views of majestic mountains, the river, falling snow, and occasional wildlife sightings.
The outdoor patio is set on the river's edge below our whispering pines. Relax and enjoy your event with drinks and food in this majestic space. You can also use this space as a dance floor while breathing in the fresh air of the pines. Reset with nature as you take in the views.
Coffee shop available upon request for your event. The Coffee shop is decorated with antiques and vintage coffee grinders/makers sure to be conversation pieces. The whole lodge is filled with bits of history all around.
