The Lodge offers an intimate experience akin to that of private home or finer bed and breakfasts. Lodge rooms are appointed with furniture crafted by local artisans and all beds come equipped with down comforters, feather beds and down pillows. They are clean, cozy and very comfortable.
The Lodge offers many amenities. There's the lobby with leather couches and massive fireplace; game room with free pool and foos; spa with sauna, steam room, massage room and two hot tubs; library with over 5,000 books, free Wi Fi; laundromat, free shuttle to the ski area: breakfast room to gather for coffee and bagels; and best of all there's the Columbine Room.
The Columbine Room is a 1200 square foot multi purpose room located on the ground floor of the Lodge. It is adjacent to the game room and just outside the door is a patio and fire pit overlooking the Needles Mountians.
The Columbine Room comes equipped with a kitchen fully stocked with all the tables, chairs, pots, pans, silverware, plates, glasses and utensils you'll need for 60 people. There are 2 refrigerators, 2 stoves, 2 dishwashers, and a kegerator! And if you want to have a BBQ there are 2 grills for use outside on the patio.
When you Rent the Lodge, you get exclusive use of the Columbine Room to do with as you please. Some folks have dances, some folks have prayer meetings, some have had formal dinners and some have used it as a romper room. It's all up to you. You can bring your own food and prepare your own meals or else the Sow's Ear can cater a BBQ or buffet.
We've made three miles of walking trails through the forest surrounding the Lodge and hundreds more are available throughout the neighborhood. Finally, upstairs is the the Sow's Ear offering the best steaks on the mountain for over 20 years.
We will happy to assist you with event planning for your group and direct you to area attractions and special events.
The Lodge is an excellent and popular choice for safe, casual and intimate Weddings. It provides an exciting Rocky Mountain destination for 20 to 120 family members and friends. Often the wedding party or close relatives stay in the Lodge while other invited guests will take a condominium or townhome. The result is more time spent with those you cherish and a celeration that lasts an entire weekend instead of only few hours.
A typical senario has your guests gathering at the Lodge on Friday night for a BBQ in the Columbine Room ending with late night conversation around the firepit. When you wake on your wedding day you are surrounded by those who will help you prepare for the ceremoney. After you exchange vows it's either upstairs to the Sow's Ear or downstairs to the Columbine Room for your reception and afterwords no has to drive anywhere because you are already home for the night.
There are several beautiful ceremony sites in and around the Lodge and the surrounding meadows and mountains. Each has it's own special attraction and one of them is sure to be the place you will want to exchange your vows.
The Lodge offers two rooms in which to have a reception. The Sow’s Ear is perhaps the prettiest reception room in the Four Corners. It offers dramatic views of the Needles Mountains, Engineer Peak and The Hermosa Cliffs and is suitable for parties of 60 to 120 guests. We offer multi-course dinner service in the Sow’s Ear and have prepared custom wedding menus ranging in price from $16 to $100 per person. However, no matter what your taste or budget we will craft you a wedding feast your guests will long remember.
The Columbine Room seats up to 60 guests and is located adjacent to an outdoor patio. The walls are paneled with cedar planks and the ceiling is made up of tongue and groove aspen. Oak top tables and sleigh style oak chairs round out the décor making for a distinctive and warm setting. We offer a buffet dinner service in the Columbine Room.
Both the Sow’s Ear and the Columbine Room feature full bar service. You may choose to host the bar yourself or opt for a cash bar. Keg beer is also available. Of course, we will be pleased to suggest wines from our extensive list to compliment your meal.
The time spent in preparation for a wedding should be happy and filled with fun & good times. We have made many contacts with florists, musicians, photographers, vidiographers and pastry chefs, and would love to help you in whatever way we can. Please call Chris Wing at 800-295-4820 and we’ll work together to make your day the best!
Finally, should you choose to “Rent the Lodge” you are welcome to throw your own party. You may not, however, have it catered by any caterer other than the Sow’s Ear.
The Lodge rents for $2000 to $3000 per night depending on the season. That's as little as $42 per person! Stay extra nights beyond the minimum for half price Sunday thru Thursday.
