NEW IN 2018!
We’ve made a few changes at Wilderness Lodge, and are in the process of a major addition!
- Inside only a few changes/additions with new curtains, valances in the great room, bedrooms, and bathroom. Nothing major just some decorative changes to update the “look”.
- Outside you’ll have use of cast iron skillets (2) and a griddle. You may use these to cook on an open fire at the campfire. Please clean thoroughly with water only after use, and hang on hooks on garage. We think you’ll enjoy the experience of preparing a meal or two on an open fire!
- On the website– I’ve added a BLOG page which is a sub-page to the “Guest Comments” page. We’ll see if I can keep up with it or not!
However, the BIG addition is coming in a the next month or so… in time for the summer season.
a tipi at Wilderness Lodge!
The tipi has been ordered, we have met with a carpenter, and have had a meeting with a local artist. The tipi will be manufactured in Colorado, an experienced local carpenter will build a deck by the creek where it will be placed, and an accomplished artist will paint the exterior in a theme capturing some of the surroundings at Wilderness Lodge. If all goes on schedule (weather permitting, availability of those involved) we expect that the tipi should be in place by the beginning of April. (please follow updates below)
UPDATE- 03/19/18 During the past week we had guests at Wilderness Lodge. Our deck work has progressed though with holes being dug for the posts. Snow is forecast for this Wednesday, so we’ll see what can be accomplished working with the weather.
The below photos of the deck site were taken on 03/10/18.
It will be “business as usual” for the most part concerning the rental of Wilderness Lodge.
The tipi will be available to registered guests of Wilderness Lodge only.
The tipi will be privately situated by the creek, yet can be seen from the house.
Maybe the guys want to spend a night in the tipi while the ladies want the comfort of the log home.
Or, the kids want to sleep in the tipi… what an experience for their summer vacation!
Maybe a “tipi for two“! (see details below)
WHAT’S INCLUDED in the TIPI?
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 TIPI?
campfire (firewood included)
WHAT IS THE COST?
There is no additional charge at this time* for the use of the tipi when renting the log home or apartment.
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 tipi with the garage apartment (restrictions apply).
How bout that… a “tipi for two“!
This offers more than a primitive camping experience, but less than all the luxuries of the log home, AND a price savings!
Sleep in the tipi with additional use of the amenities in the garage apartment
(open floor plan includes: leather sofa & chair, queen bed, kitchenette- table/chairs, microwave, small refrigerator, coffee maker; bathroom w/shower).
Just like the log home all linens, towels, paper, soap products are provided.

It’s already an adventure in the wilderness at Wilderness Lodge!
We’re only adding to the experience!
While Native Americans kept warm in their tipis by building a fire, we cannot allow fires to be built in them.
DO NOT try to start a fire inside the tipi, along the creek there will be a campfire, and picnic table. We don’t recommend sleeping in the tipi when the weather conditions are too cold, or a storm is possible, or occurring.
*Prices subject to change unless you have a confirmed reservation
Terms for use of tipi, rental with apartment only are on “Rates & Discounts” page
