HAPPENINGS AT THE LODGE
Electric Mountain Lodge Under NEW management!
We are so excited to announce that Electric Mountain Lodge has new permanent residents!
Luke "Wildman" Dobbs and his wife, Aleesha are the new managers of grounds and operations. Luke and Aleesha are both Colorado natives with decades of mountain lodge operation experience. They have a diverse background in hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, trail riding, mountain and river guiding. They are settling in nicely with their two children and three dogs, and preparing the lodge for a phenomenal summer!
This season we will be open to the public Thursday through Sunday for overnight getaways, day trips, ATV rentals, Sidexside Rentals and breakfast, lunch and dinner. Monday through Wednesday we are available for private events and company retreats.
