The Aspens Lodge, located 20 miles upriver from Meeker and nearby the Trappers Lake Wilderness area, is an ideal base for adventuring into the surrounding national forest and wilderness areas. The Aspens Lodge can easily accommodate a party of 8 to 10 persons. The common area contains a fully equipped kitchen, dining, and sitting area with a gas fireplace. Four tastefully decorated bedrooms each have a private bath. Enjoy sunshine and the surrounding woods from the front and back decks.

The space
While cellphone access is available along with broad band internet, this remains the ideal location to take a cleanse from the digitalized world. Unplug. Detox. Instead, listen to the river or the calls of a pair of sandhill cranes that nest nearby. Read a good book while resting in the shade of the aspen and spruce trees. Breathe the fresh air. Relax. Revitalize. Each season is different, but each season is beautiful.

Where you’ll be

Meeker, Colorado, United States

The Aspens Lodge is an ideal base for your active lifestyle.  During warmer weather, (bicycling, running, OHV rides, fishing, hiking, paddle boarding,) during winter (cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling) are all possibilities that are close at hand. Whether you hike, trail run, or make arrangements with local outfitters to go by horseback, by all means go "wild" by venturing into the nearby Trappers Lake Wilderness Area. Trailheads for various trails leading into the wilderness are located nearby: the Oyster Lake trailhead is one mile away; the South Fork campground trailhead is only 11 miles away; the Marvine Lakes trailhead is only 16 miles away; and various trailheads at Trappers Lake are only 28 miles away.

If your preferred means of accessing the "great outdoors" is of the motorized variety, you'll find The Aspens Lodge to be an ideal base while you explore the extensive trail network that extends around Sleepy Cat Mountain. You can access this network at points nearby, including Lake Avery which is just a few minutes away. During the winter, many snowmobilers use a parking lot that we provide as a courtesy higher up on our property to set off on rides into the high country accessible only by snow mobile or cross-country skiing on the Buford-New Castle Road.

During your stay

Happy to take "the road less taken," I'm not afraid to be lost--unless, of course, there are hungry wolves, mountain lions, or bears running quickly in my direction. A 30-year career as an American diplomat allowed me to explore and become intimately acquainted with far-flung locales in West Africa and East Asia, but my Colorado roots provided continuity and an enduring sense of home. Having retired, I'm turning over a new leaf as the owner/operator of The Aspens Lodge. I live onsite in the original homestead cabin that was built on the property.
