“Family gathering at the Rye Lodge”
Reviewed August 31, 2011

Friends and family totalling about 20 of us just stayed at the Rye Country Lodge for three nights; We had a great time and were quite comfortable. The setting is on about an acre lot with many big evergreen trees, flower beds, fountain, meandering creek--all quite charming. BUT, make no mistake, this is a rustic lodge, with six bedrroms in the main house (two downstairs in a converted basement and the other four on the main floor), all with shared bathrooms. Some of us stayed also in the two cabins on the back of the property, one of which comfortably slept two people and the other (with bunkbeds) slept four. The main house lodge had a common kitchen which we used two nights to fix "pot luck" family style meals for 23 people, served on the spacious covered side deck overlooking the Greenhorn Creek. There were barbecue grills available for our use, in addition to the stove, oven and "Radar Range" in the kitchen, and plenty of flatware, serving dishes, cookware and the like to serve our full group. The main house also had a combo living room and dining room as well as an adjoining den/family room which opened up via glass doors to the back lawn area (with firepit). We used the den area each evening for cocktails and hors d'ouevres. There was no air conditioning, but the evenings were plenty cool. Criticisms: there are way too many funky, dusty, faded stuffed animals cluttering up the place; the plumbing is tempermental (like needing to jiggle the toilet handles to refill the flush bowls); the showers have weak flow; and the main lodge really needs a deep cleaning--dust was on many crowded shelves and knick knacks everywhere (the premises' owner used to sell antiques). The furnishings are antique and rustic, but fit the decor and ambiance of a lodge. The cabins were cleaner and neater than the main house. The beds were comfortable, linens and towels were clean and ample, and overall quite comfortable. Our choice for staying in or near Rye was here or at the Days Inn out on Interstate 25. We made the better choice by staying here and having a wonderful time. We would go back, and would recommend the lodge and its cabins to friends--but with the caveat noted above to be forewarned that it isn't the Biltmore. It is a country lodge located in a quaint village of about 201 people.

Room Tip: If big group, take the lodge; if just a couple, take a cabin.
