How often do you think about how nice it would be just to disappear? To just escape everything and vanish into the woods? How nice would it be to be off the grid, away from the noise, tucked deep in the pines of a lush forest? Well, such a haven exists, and it’s waiting for you!
The Electric Mountain Lodge is about as tucked away and remote as it gets. Located in the thick of Western Colorado’s Grand Mesa National Forest, this ultimate mountain getaway accommodates couples, families, and groups! Whether you’re looking for a peaceful respite from your busy work week, or planning a luxurious destination wedding to remember forever, the Electric Mountain Lodge guarantees a unique connection with mother nature that we defy you to find anywhere else.
The cabins and main lodge offer that classic, rustic, log cabin feel while maintaining an atmosphere of cleanliness, safety and family-friendly fun. The main lodge boasts a shared lounge, a restaurant and bar with delectable American fare, and a variety of rentals for various outdoor excursions. Grand Mesa is known for its world-class hunting, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling and other motorsports to bring some thrills to you and your family’s great outdoor adventure.
The cabins are decked with all the warmth and comfort necessary to wind down after a day of mountainous exploration. While the snow dusts the gorgeous green landscape, or as the sun sets behind the ponderosa-pined hills, our larger cabins offer the space to sprawl in your plush King size beds while the kids bunk up in the loft with access games and toys, and so much more. Our smaller cabins provide just enough room for two people to cozy up and enjoy the surroundings. Enjoy fresh linens and towels, a convenient stock of household products including trash bags, toilet paper, paper towels, soaps, and shampoos. Brew some coffee in the morning, and then take a step outside to take in the absolutely breathtaking views.
Oh, and did we mention the splendor and beauty of it all? Grand Mesa is the largest flat top mountain in the world, speckled with over 300 lakes across 500 square miles of forest teeming with wildlife. You’ll have the opportunity to see majestic land animals like moose, mule deer, elk, marmots, and bighorn sheep. For the family birdwatchers, some of the most beautiful winged creatures on the planet can be spotted in these skies, such as bald eagles, boreal owls, golden eagles, wild turkeys, and peregrine falcons. Take a boat out on the lake and cast the line out for a chance to catch trout, cutthroat, rainbows, and brooks.
A short drive into the colorful, historic town of Paonia will offer shops, restaurants, art, and is also host to several wineries and vineyards where you can sip on some of the finest wine in Colorado. Throughout the Summer, Paonia holds events with good old fashioned family fun, from fireworks and baking contests to concerts, rodeos, and fresh ripe cherry picking.
So take a break! Come up the mountain and plant your feet in the grass. Look up at the sky and connect with nature in a way you never have before. Allow yourself to enjoy the peace and beauty that the Electric Mountain Lodge promises, and create unforgettable memories with your family that you’ll remember for the rest of your lives.
