The restaurant and gift shop are located in the main lodge. The remarkable lodge was built by a local family in 1946 and is truly one of the Historic landmarks in Creede. It is exactly what you think a lodge should look like. It is rustic, cozy, with many memories and stories to share. There is not a level board in the whole place...but that just adds to its charm. The lodge is almost 6000 square feet, which includes our reception/front desk area, the restaurant which seats 90 people, and the largest, most diverse gift shop in the area. The restaurant is open from Memorial to Labor day and is known for its home-cooking, catfish, and delicious homemade pies. It is a favorite of locals and tourists alike. The gift shop has everything from t-shirts, hats, handbags, jewelry, and sculptures, to unique one-of-a-kind items made by artisans from the area. It also has a large well stocked toy store and play area for the kids. This along with 20 flavors of hand-dipped ice cream makes it a favorite stop for the entire family.
