About: We are a family run business serving families and groups of people from all over the country and we are so very happy to share our beautiful Lodge and views with you.
Why Lemon Lake: The Location of the Lodge itself is on a remote mountain lake with spectacular views where you can truly get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives and enjoy the quiet of the wilderness broken by the occasional coyote howling in the distance. At night we have very little light pollution up here on the Lake and star gazing is a favorite past time. If you have a telescope and are looking for a great location to star gaze while on vacation this is a great place located at an elevation of 8,300 feet.
The location to the Lake is wonderful and a short walk to the mouth of the Florida River where it empties into Lemon Lake. This is the honey spot for trout fishing.
No need to travel to the forest because you’re right in the middle of the San Juan Forest with your own private access to the Forest from Lemon Lake Lodge property. Just walking out the door from the Lodge is a door opening into the wilderness. From there all you have to do is put one foot in front of the other and you're in prime wilderness and at times you may feel like you’re footsteps are the very first footsteps ever on your path.
We are located near two major trail heads for hiking and horse/mule pack trails. The trails are very well maintained and offer all levels of experience to enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge: No neighbors that you can see from the Lodge. It is total un-obscured wilderness and mountain lake views
