Mountain and river views

A Riverhouse Lodge is the perfect getaway for your adventure filled Colorado vacation! You will be spoiled by the range of activities right outside our doorstep.

From single rooms with Queen or King beds, one double, and a 2-bedroom 2-bathroom suite, A Riverhouse Lodge can comfortably accommodate small and large groups. Let yourself unwind while relaxing in the our remodeled hot tub building or reading a book to the soothing sound of the Arkansas River from the covered patio.

After an exhilarating day on the river, the mountain, or the trails, enjoy the comfort of our high-end mattresses and welcoming amenities.

Feel free to use the full kitchen, or gather with friends and family in the common area.  Enjoy a game of horseshoes, corn hole, or simply marvel at the views from our wrap-around deck.

Each of our six individually decorated rooms have a private bathroom, television, refrigerator, and coffee maker with locally roasted coffee. We also offer complimentary bottled water, yogurt, and a breakfast basket with homemade muffins, fresh fruit and granola bars will be delivered to your room daily.

Our cozy riverside lodge along the Arkansas River is located in the heart of Chaffee County, the adventure capital of Colorado.  Enjoy impressive views of some of Colorado’s highest mountains, the Collegiate Peaks.  This cluster of fourteeners (mountains over 14,000 feet tall) include Mt. Princeton, Mt. Harvard, Mt. Yale, and Mt. Columbia.

The three-story lodge is conveniently located just 2 miles south of Buena Vista in Johnson Village, near the intersection of Highways 24 and 285.


Comfort and the natural environment are perfectly combined here, to create an authentic Colorado experience. 

Adventure Opportunities

From the convenience of A Riverhouse Lodge, the adventure opportunities are endless in the Arkansas Headwaters Recreational Area.

Enjoy whitewater rafting and fishing on the legendary Arkansas River, or mountain biking and hiking in the Sawatch Range. The four-wheeling trails go for miles and stables are minutes away for your horseback riding excursions.

Whether you stay for a night, a week, or a month, be sure to bring your sunscreen and adventurous spirit, and we’ll keep you busy!
