Property description

*** Greet the Summer Special ***
Greet the summer in Jasper at the Lost Elk Lodge! See our special rates for the month of June (3-night minimum stay).

The Lost Elk Lodge is a unique wilderness experience located in the heart of historic Jasper, Colorado. The cabin is built on the location of the old Cherokee Trading Post of a bygone era. The property is 1 acre of commercial resort/tourist (CRT) land, having 300 feet of frontage on Forest Service Road 250 and also a seasonal creek running next to it. There is year-round access with the road plowed to the driveway of the property making it ideal for 4 seasons of fun. From hiking to snowmobiling and hunting to fishing, there's a little something for everyone.

While hunting is not allowed in the town of Jasper itself, it's important to note that usually a short walk from any property takes you in to the Rio Grande National Forest where elk, deer, bear, big horn sheep, coyotes, game birds and countless other game are readily available. Likewise, the Platoro Reservoir is a short drive up the road and hosts freshly stocked trout and Kokanee salmon. Not to mention all of the secret streams, lakes and ponds known by the Jasper residents.

Located in the remote Rocky Mountains, in the South San Juan Range, the Lost Elk Lodge offers an off-grid escape while maintaining the most important of creature comforts. Although there is no commercial power, the cabin is self-sufficient with solar, batteries, propane and a generator. The artesian well produces fresh spring water which is safe, delicious and refreshing to drink.

Satellite internet is also available, allowing guests to check their email and browse the Web if they so desire. (Streaming audio/video and large downloads are not supported or allowed due to limited bandwidth!) In addition, a Skype phone is now available for outgoing calls.

The cabin is approximately 1100 interior square feet plus another 700 square feet of wood decks that extend from every wall of the cabin. There are 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and living and dining areas with plenty of room for cots. The place is fully furnished with everything you would need for a comfortable stay including bedding, towels, and all of the basic dry goods.
