So glad to read how much you enjoyed the Black Bear room at our lodge! Many of our guests are requesting specific rooms based on the themes as each room is different. Hope to see you again next season! More

We had another great stay over the 4th of July! Robin took great care of us and our dog Sugar during our stay. Rooms are large and very well kept. The wrap around deck is great for kicking back and enjoying the evening after a day of exploring. The hotel is a smaller property which makes us feel as if... More

We absolutely loved our visit again this year. We requested The Antler's Room again this year. The deck outside our room makes the space seem so much larger. The view of the river and valley below is so picturesque. Our hostess, Robin, made our visit ever more special.

Great to have you stay at the North Face Lodge again! It is really rewarding for me to have guests identify a favorite themed room so it becomes a home away from home. The views from Antlers are quite special! See you again next year! More

Good service and cute rooms that are all individually themed. There's a great deck facing the river that available to all the rooms. The views from the deck are terrific making it difficult to quit drinking in the afternoon.

So glad that you enjoyed your stay at the North Face Lodge! It is a relaxing way to end the day sitting outdoors on the great deck around the fire pits, exchanging stories of our day's adventures. Come back again to continue exploring our San Juan Mountains! More

Great deck overlooking town & river, large rooms, and incredibly sweet woman, Robin, in charge. Lake City is a beautiful little town and North Face Lodge is a perfect place to spend the night before/after a 14er!

We do have many hikers setting their sights on the Fourteeners with Lake City as a base and also hikers from the Colorado Trail. While some hikers come in late the night prior to their hike with a very early departure, it is a great celebration to come back to a comfy room and enjoy sitting out under the stars... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights on a girl's mini vacation. The room was beautifully decorated, very spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. We stayed in the Columbine room, and I loved the decor. The lodge sits up on a hill and gives excellent views across Lake City. It's at the edge of town, but still walking distance... More

So pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the North Face Lodge. We always appreciate feedback from our guests and now have a goal of adding curtains in all rooms to improve privacy. We have also started adding soundproof walls between the rooms to the same goal. I have had the hot water issued checked and adjusted. We... More

Due to an unexpected change in our travel plans we came to town without a place to stay. I mentioned this to the folks at The Sportsman Outdoors as we set off for a full day of fly fishing and was told "We'll take care of it", and they did. Upon our late return I was given directions and was... More

My husband and I spent the weekend at this adorable lodge. It is very nicely decorated and recently remodeled. It is located in a nice spot with a great view of the river and town. The deck is wonderful and very comfortable. We walked into town for breakfast and it only took about 7minutes to walk.
