Historic Lodge at Rainbow Trout Ranch Celebrates Eighty Five Years in Southern Colorado

Antonito, CO (PRWEB) April 22, 2013

For eighty five years, the massive lodge at Rainbow Trout Ranch, a dude ranch in southern Colorado, has provided a gathering place for visitors to the spectacular Conejos River Canyon. At 18,000 square feet, the lodge is one of the largest log buildings in the west. It was built entirely of spruce logs hauled by draft horse teams, and using only square pegs in the construction which was fully completed in 1928.

In the eight-five years since, cables and spikes have been added to reinforce the structure but it remains largely unchanged. Known until 1993 as the Rainbow Trout Lodge, the property was purchased in 1993 by the Van Berkum family who restructured it into a full-fledged guest ranch and renamed it the Rainbow Trout Ranch.

Guests from all over the United States and overseas come to the ranch for a western experience, and there is no denying that the lodge is the heart of the ranch. There are sixteen guest cabins but the gathering place for dining, relaxing, socializing, dancing and more is the grand old lodge.

The lodge is in the process of being named to the National Historic Register.
