Owner: Adventure Unlimited, Englewood, CO

The Andrew’s Lodge is a 25,000 square foot hospitality retreat located in southern Colorado designed with references to some of the great lodges built a century ago in the western United States. The Lodge has thirty guest rooms, a large dining room, multi-purpose/meeting room and great room/lounge.

The site slopes gently and the great room, dining room and all the guest rooms enjoy long vistas to the south. The Lodge is entered from the uphill side, and the guest rooms fan out in two wings in a soft curving arc. The east wing, which is on the lower side of the site, also has the multi-purpose/meeting room on the lowest level. The guest rooms all have either balconies or dormered sitting areas.

The primary materials of the lodge are stone, timber and cedar with a metal roof. The interiors are western in character with comfortable guest rooms and small conference rooms located throughout the lodge.
