Our building has 10 large bedrooms each with 12 foot ceilings and hardwood floors. Eight of the bedrooms have their own individual bathrooms. The two bedrooms on the second floor share a full bathroom and also share an outside deck. The outside deck has incredible views of the mountains around Ouray and Telluride.
High speed Wi-Fi is provided free and keeping with the history theme of the historic school the school is a TV free zone. Hopefully without TV you won't be as inclined to be a couch potato. However like most of us if you have an addiction to your PDA (personal digital assistant) you are covered with our free high speed internet service.
Built in 1914 as the Uncompahgre School District 29, this facility was operated as a public school until its closure in 1986.
This historic building has been renovated into a beautiful lodge located in a wonderful scenic country setting.
The Old School Lodge boasts a great room with gas fireplace and wet bar which was the original school theater/gym/great room. An incredible and completely new and fully equipped commercial style kitchen invites the culinary gifted to create anything they can imagine.
The dinning area is currently arranged for comfortable dining seating for 22 but can easily be expanded.
Local music teachers use the building for their student recitals because we have a very special antique piano that is meticulously tuned. Our decor is reminiscent of school days past. The classrooms were converted into spacious bedrooms each with their own private bathrooms.
There are three king beds and ten queen beds conveniently spread among the nine bedrooms. Two additional boys and girls bathrooms have been remodeled from the original school house so that if you have company they can use these public styled bathrooms and not the private baths in the individual bedrooms.
Our Old School Lodge is located in the scenic and historic Uncompahgre River Valley. We are surrounded by many dramatic natural wonders including the Black Canyon National Park, Grand Mesa (World's largest flattop mountain) and the breathtaking San Juan Mountain range with its gently ascending Uncompahgre Plateau which extends west to Utah.
White water rafting, skiing, hiking, biking, fly fishing, boating, rock climbing, SUP boarding, sightseeing are just a few of the activities within a 65 mile radius of the lodge.
Whether gathering for a family reunion, church retreat, recreational club activity, business retreat or special occasion, the Old School Lodge provides a spacious, quiet location, where unforgettable memories are meant to be made.
