Earth Spirit Lodge is a multi-unit vacation destination and refuge for inner peace.

Each apartment or cottage carries a unique woodland theme that includes a large spring-fed pond, seasonal creek, and nature walking paths. All units enjoy waterfront views with excellent Wifi for remote working and Zoom meetings.

We are located in a small valley surrounded by mountains and pine trees just six miles east of Bayfield, Colorado with easy year-round access off the 160 Highway.

The space
This is a cozy one-bedroom cottage that enjoys the best views and privacy at Earth Spirit Lodge. Sleeps up to four with the couch as an additional pull-out bed.

Wake up to beautiful waterfront views and the aroma of coffee or tea that comes complimentary. Take a stroll around the large pond and seasonal river-walk, soaking in the tranquility and colorful sights of the local flora and fauna.

Bringing a pet? We do have an added pet fee of $60. We love our furry friends, but they double our cleaning time so this added cost allows us to keep hosting them.

Important Notes:

- There is no TV or cable, but strong high-speed internet is provided - excellent for traveling workers!

- Phone service is spotty so please turn on Wifi Calling on your cellular device.

- A washer and dryer is available for extended-stay guests.

- Please look at all the photos. Entry has three steps with no wheelchair accessibility. There is also an inside decorative staircase that we require guests with children to sign a liability release + promise to keep kids from climbing them.

- Minor traffic noise can be heard from road, although there is little traffic at night.

- The fireplace is not usable and only decorative.

Howdy and welcome! Originally from Phoenix, Arizona—as a kid, I would travel to Colorado every summer with my family. It was my favorite time of year which sparked my dream of having a small retreat that people could visit and feel renewed by the forest and mountain’s energy. Fast forward a couple decades later and it’s now a reality! I didn’t realize until after moving in, but Earth Spirit Lodge is a property that I actually passed by every summer on my way to the campground I would stay at. What a neat and surprising full circle manifestation! Previously, I owned a healing center for eight years in Arizona where I developed my skills in community leadership, teaching, and life coaching. As time progresses on, my aim is to have the lodge not just be a vacation destination, but also a retreat center where people can come for extended stays on personal wellness retreats. For now, Earth Spirit Lodge is simply a relaxing getaway where each year I’m making strides on remodeling improvements, beautifying the grounds, and cultivating a peaceful atmosphere that all can feel and enjoy while here. When I’m not working on the lodge, I like to host community events, potlucks, teach country line dancing, and continue writing my Living Peace series of books. :)

During your stay

We live on the property, so one of us is always around. We treat this as a sanctuary and practice Noble Silence with our guests, especially when walking around the lake or enjoying one of our meditation stations. You will be able to text and email us at anytime for quick responses, but when you see us out walking or gardening, we will likely just acknowledge you with a cheerful wave.
