Description of Glamping Units
These Native American tipis, located in a breathtaking wilderness area in Colorado, provide guests with a closeness to nature they just can't get anywhere else. They are located at the base of the National Forest, with very close access to hiking trails, a giant lake for fishing, and tons of outdoor activities. In total, there are five luxury tipis, making this space ideal for couples or small families of three.
Tipi #1 through Tipi #4 have queen-size log beds, and Tipi #5 has a log bunk bed (full-size bed down below, twin-size bed up top). All beds are dressed with sheets, pillow cases and pillows, and gorgeous Indian comforters. There are cots available per request.
All of the tipis are mounted on decks, and they are lined to protect guests from the elements. Colorful Native American rugs, cushions, and bedding adorn the inside of the tipi providing flair and comfort. Each tipi also has a camp kitchen box, equipped with pots and pans, as well as cooking and eating utensils. Ice is always readily available, and guests also get a cooler for beer or food. There is a men’s and a women’s bathroom with flushing toilets and hot showers just a short walking distance away.
There is a giant fire pit in the middle of the property's "Tipi Village," where glampers can cook food, roast marshmallows, and warm their hands. At night, relax by the community fire pit and visit with other guests. Read More

There are a lot of amenities to enjoy, aside from the accommodations, at this glamping property. The lodge was built in the late 1900s and has been renovated and updated with a cozy chic mountain lodge decor. There is a large living room with a comfortable couch, chairs, and a giant fireplace, as well as a billiards room and board games. The third living area has lots of comfortable modern seating and free coffee every morning! The lodge also houses the property's country store, where many simple food items, drinks, ice, candy, and replacement fishing parts can be purchased.
The host's favorite part of the lodge is The Red Dog Saloon—Colorado's Smallest Bar—where guests can have a cold beer or Bloody Mary and visit with other guests. This tiny bar packs a big punch, and guests would be surprised how much fun they can have in a 100-square-foot bar with four bar stools!
On the weekends, the hosts offer some extra fun for everyone. There is a craft tent where kiddos and adults can get crafty painting, designing T-shirts, making candles, etc. On Friday and Saturday night, they show outdoor movies, and on Saturday mornings, the adults can enjoy the bottomless Bloody Mary Bar!

For an adventure, guests can explore Knights Ridge and Hell’s Canyon, and there are also many amateur trails nearby including a path that meanders along the Colorado River to a romantic wooden swing overlooking the valley.
If looking for mountain scenery, it doesn't get much better than this ranch. This particular area of Colorado is absolutely breathtaking, and the land is one of its most beautiful golden nuggets. Even the dirt road that winds to the property is one of the most amazing roads guests will ever drive down. The road winds along a giant lake with picturesque views, long stretches of beautiful blue lake water, and Aspen trees for miles. When guests drive through the gates, they will immediately see the beautiful green meadow and the private lake with the scenic Rocky Mountains as the backdrop.
The ranch is home to many types of wildlife, including lots of eagles, birds, deer, marmots, moose, and even a fox every now and then! It's rare to stay a night without seeing one of these beautiful creatures. Little Indian Lake is the perfect spot for beginner fishermen, and there is a canoe guests can use for a sunset boat ride. In addition, the property runs along a beautiful river, and the private hiking trail leads to rushing rapids, secluded calm swimming holes, and even a wooden swing overlooking the river valley. The hosts call it the "kissing swing" and have had more than one marriage proposal there!
