A Year-Round Rocky Mountain Retreat is Reserved for You...

In so many ways, Bear Paw Lodge is the ultimate Southwest Colorado getaway all year round. In its peaceful setting amid blue spruce and Ponderosa pine and nearby Vallecito Lake, Bear Paw is convenient Anasazi cliff dwellings and the thrilling Durango and Silverton Train. The Four Corners area has some of the state's best hunting for turkey, bear and elk. And Bear Paw Lodge lets you enjoy it all, any time of year, with summer cabins, vacation homes and a cozy bed and breakfast.


With the San Juan National Forest and Wimenuche Wilderness all around, Bear Paw Lodge is your family getaway May through Oct. You can choose a private vacation home, or a summer cabin - or take all seven wooded cabins for a fun-filled family reunion!


Just nearby Bear Paw Lodge is the serene, scenic Vallecito Lake - it's filled with cutthroat trout, pike and salmon, and its 12-mile shoreline gets even more beautiful in the fall. One sunset and you'll know that Bear Paw Lodge is the place for you!
