NEW IN 2019!
the Teepee at Wilderness Lodge!
Teepee at Wilderness Lodge in place
The 14′ diameter teepee has been painted by Joy Putterman an accomplished local artist.
She painted the exterior with themes capturing the surroundings of the mountains.
A local carpenter Dan Beckwith with years of experience and attention to detail
has built a spacious deck (24′ x 28′)
where the teepee is placed… alongside the creek.

Teepee is in place, but still needs a little tweaking,
the cots are inside…
ready for use soon (weather permitting).
nOTE from December 2018: I sat in the teepee for awhile yesterday.
It was a relaxing experience listening to the stream flowing nearby.
Seemed like I was a world away from everyone!
The teepee will be available for use by registered guests only
privately situated by the creek yet can be seen from the house.
Maybe the guys want to spend a night in the teepee while the ladies want the comfort of the log home.
Or, the kids want to sleep in the teepee… what an experience for their summer vacation!
Maybe a “teepee for two“! (see details below)
WHAT’S INCLUDED in the TEEPEE?
lighting (to be determined; most likely camping style lanterns)
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BRING?
blanket (nights can be cool)
WHAT OTHER AMENITIES ARE NEAR THE TEEPEE?
campfire (firewood included)
picnic table- (plastic dishes/glasses are available in the house or apartment)
WHAT IS THE COST?
There is no additional charge at this time* for the use of the teepee when renting the log home or apartment.
Prices for rental of apartment and cleaning fee is at the bottom of the page.
Parties of one or two (maximum) people who determine that the log home is more space than they need,
or have budget constraints have the
option of renting the teepee with the garage apartment (restrictions apply).
This offers more than a primitive camping experience, but less than all the luxuries of the log home,
but with use of the HOT TUB, gas grill, campfire along with a price savings!
Sleep in the teepee with additional use of the amenities in the garage apartment
(open floor plan includes: leather sofa & chair, queen size bed, gas log heater, sky lights
kitchenette- table/chairs, microwave, small refrigerator, coffee maker; bathroom w/shower).

Please realize that the apartment/teepee combination is an option we are offering that’s focused on individuals with a budget,
and occupancy of ONLY one or two people.
The garage apartment is very comfortable and is only accessible from ground level by a spiral staircase (a limitation for entry and exit with lots of luggage, groceries, etc.).
We are NOT allowing the rental of the teepee/apartment combination to anyone with children;
the house is much more suitable.
We have to impose the restrictions listed, and also to offer the best opportunities for people who want the experience of Wilderness Lodge… the log home.
