Nestled in a gorgeous setting of aspen and spruce, Dark Timber  Lodge offers a perfect combination of rustic simplicity and comfortable amenities.

Around the lodge you’ll find ponds, meadows filled with wildflowers and timbered areas.  Guests can literally walk out the front door and quickly hop on any number of trails where you can go for a hike, go mountain biking, ride your horse or take a spin on an ATV.  The lodge lies within the Uncompahgre National Forest, which means you can walk off the private property and roam the beauty and wilds of our public lands for miles and miles.   


When you’re ready to return from your outdoor adventures, you won’t be disappointed when you walk inside.  Originally an old summer cabin dating back to 1899, the kitchen and baths have been updated.  The lodge itself has been expanded and can handle large parties sleeping up to 20 guests but still has a cozy feel for smaller groups.  There is a large bunk-room downstairs and private rooms upstairs.  Two separate bathrooms hold multiple shower stalls, sinks and toilet stalls keeping any size party comfortable…and clean if need be!





Dark Timber Lodge is not only a great place to hunt, but it’s an ideal spot for family reunions, weddings, retreats and youth camps.  Montrose Regional Airport is a short and scenic drive away.  Roads into the lodge are maintained and can accommodate any type of vehicle during the summer months.
