Experience a green way of lodging while enjoying all the creature comforts at Williams Fork Lodging for a Colorado Vacation
Our journey began in 2003 when we fell in love with our 80 acre homestead surrounded by nature… we decided to share this wonderful place with others and built the Lodge in 2005. Due to a pine beetle pandemic in 2004 that spread throughout our place as well as in the national forest, killing all lodgepole pine trees, we realized we had to be proactive in purging all dead pine beetle riddled trees. By mitigating these dead trees, we have also helped protect our place from wildfires, and with the resulting deadwood, realized we had a sustainable heat source as well as a way to generate hot water for the three buildings on the property. We harvest the deadwood from the property each year and burn it in an outside boiler that runs to side arms on the building’s boiler system. Due to this sustainable way of heating, you may experience some smoke.
