The Wapiti Retreat offers in seven bedrooms and 3 ½ bathrooms. With six twin, three queen, and one king bed, plus a queen sleeper couch in the family room, the Lodge can accommodate up to 16 guests.

Details are as follows:

The Deer Bedroom, in the loft, is arranged with 2 twin beds and offers commanding views both to the east and west. This sleeping area occupies the entire loft and overlooks the living room on the main floor.

The Elk Bedroom with its adjacent bathroom and two closets, occupies the south wing of the main floor. It provides the advantages of a king-size bed and an amazing view to the southwest via a huge picture window.

The Fox bedroom, in the north wing of the main floor, has a queen bed and affords spectacular views to the west.

Across the hall in the north wing is the Bear Bedroom, also equipped with a queen bed. The Bear and Fox bedroom share a bath, but also have ready access to the ½ bath around the corner.

The Duck room in the southwest corner of the lower floor doubles as a library and reading area; but with its queen-size futon, can accommodate two overnight. An enormous picture window provides occupants ample opportunity to enjoy scenery and wildlife in a restful setting.

The Moose room offers matched twin XL beds and is adjacent to the downstairs shower.

The Beaver room, with its twin bunk bed, is an ideal sleeping area for two younger guests, but can be readily re-arranged as a pair of twin beds.

Amenities on the main floor include a full kitchen and two dining areas. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas range, dishwasher, refrigerator, small appliances, cookware and utensils. The main floor dining/living area offers panoramic views of the valley, beaver ponds, and mountains that lie just west of the lodge. The foothills of the Park Range rise just 300 yards away along the west side of the valley. The view stretches from the Mountains of the Zirkel wilderness on the northwest to Rabbit ears peak to the south.

The central part of the lower floor encompasses a large Family/Recreation Room which serves well as a staging area for hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing excursions; but the area is also suitable for social gatherings. A comfortable sitting area is equipped with a pool table, 42-inch TV with Bluetooth-capable DVD player. This can be used as a movie theater, a game center, or even a sleeping area if one takes advantage of the queen-size sleeper couch.
