JCH Bunk House Lodge
The JCH Bunk House Lodge is named after the original homesteader John C Howard who's family settled this awesome piece of North Park back around 1860. The house is the original house built from lodge pole pine trees which were hand hewed from the timbers in the surrounding wilderness, although the exterior of the house is dressed in siding, the inside still bears the logs that were all formed by hand back in the day!
There are several other 1800’s cattle operation buildings on site that were once located 10 miles east in the ghost town of Teller City, when this mining town was deserted overnight due to a gold strike just west of Denver, many of the local residents transported the buildings down to the lower flat to use for their ranching operations using handmade skis in the dead of winter, these skis can be viewed as part of the lodges landscaping. Our clients are free to roam these buildings and wonder about all the conversations that have taken place since those days, take photos, and relax by our fire pit! There is a great pond filled with good sized brown trout and on which you will see plenty of ducks and geese located steps from the lodge.
The three bedroom house sleeps 7 comfortably, and is used for our smaller more quaint groups. When the weather gets bad, which it will in the later seasons, we have a washer and dryer so you can be as comfortable as possible out in the elements, 1 full bathroom with an awesome shower (an authentic 1800's outhouse available as well). There is a comfortable living room with Direct TV and high speed wireless internet, and a kitchen with all the cooking utilities needed to make sure you are well fed by our in camp cooks. There is also a private rustic cabin available for couples or clients wishing to have a bit more privacy, the cabin is located around 100 yards from the main lodge.
