A Riverhouse Lodge

A Riverhouse Lodge is the perfect getaway for your adventure-filled Colorado vacation!  You will be spoiled by the range of amenities included in your stay.

The best lodging option for your group

From single rooms, doubles, and a 2-bedroom suite, A Riverhouse Lodge can comfortably accommodate most groups and families. Let yourself unwind while relaxing in the hot tub or reading a book to the soothing sound of the Arkansas River, from the covered patio. After an exhilarating day on the river or the mountain, enjoy the comfort of unrivaled amenities and new, high-end mattresses. Feel free to use the full kitchen, or gather with friends and family in the common area.  Enjoy a game of horseshoes, or simply marvel at the views from our wrap-around deck.

Each of our six impeccably decorated and remodeled rooms have a private bathroom, television with satellite connection, DVD/VCR player, refrigerator, coffee maker with locally roasted coffee, complimentary juice and water, and include a breakfast basket with homemade muffins, yogurt and fruit.

This newly remodeled riverside lodge along the Arkansas River is located in the heart of Chaffee County, the adventure capitol 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 HWY 24 & 285.
