About Artil Leo

We have loved our family lodge for many years and have had many great times throughout the seasons with our friends and family here! It is just a great place to unwind and enjoy each other with all that the house and property has to offer. The kids love it up there! It is such a fun place if you have a large family or group of friends to spend the week with!

Why Artil Leo chose Lupton

As you have discovered not very many places will accommodate large groups and our Lodge is designed for that. Forget everything and enjoy our commercial cook stove, large dining areas, lots of beds with fresh linens and towels.

What makes this house unique

Located close by within 1 mile from gocery or a short drive yet Wilderness and Nature. Front yard play area and short walk down to the river. Rear yard deck, sound system, camp fire, volley ball, horse shoes, archery, range. We got it all.

Perfect Lodge for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

The Bella Vista Lodge was exactly what we needed for our large group of guys. with several Golf courses close by it was perfect. Cooking/Dining was great due to the HUGE dining room table and old school oven/griddle. We slept 20 people with ease and had a blast on the property.The swimming hole was perfect to cool off in and the horse shoe pits came in handy nightly. We will most definitely be booking the Bella Vista Lodge for a yearly guys weekend. The Listing and Photos online are completely accurate, the property was ready/clean upon our arrival, and Mr Leo was Helpful through the process. Thanks for the use of your great Lodge Art. Talk to you next year

Perfect lodge if you are looking for a secluded one

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our staying there. It was a fantastic facility with everything we needed. The vast land with no neighbor was perfect for such a huge group like ours(25) as we couldn't lower down our voices till we hit the sack late at every night. All the facilities such as the huge dining table, the awesome patio, volleyball net, bonfire pit catered way more to our expectation.

However some of the utensils probably need to be replaced. Not that those gave us a good deal of trouble but couple of them were a bit rusty and the coating of the non-stick pan was off in few places. That's no bother if you don't have any plan to cook meal for 25 people.

We had some trouble in lighting up the oven and finally one guy figured it out after 30 minutes of effort. It would be nice if the owner right down the procedure in the help manual.

I would certainy recommend it to anybody who need isolation and as a matter of fact I might go there again. The cabin is very clean and perfect for this price.

Owner's Response: We loved having your group of friends to the lodge and were delighted to hear what a wonderful time you all had. It is a great place to make lasting memories:) We recently purchased many new utensils and got rid of the older ones. I have also updated the manual to include information regarding the stove and how to function it. It is easy once you know how to do it so I appreciate that feedback in order to make things easier for our guests. Wer would enjoy having you back at any time!

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

What a great place for our family reunion! All 18 of us, Gramma, Grampa, 4 kids with spouses and 8 grankids had a great time! Our kids all commented that it was really great that there were things close by to go and do and then we could come back and just hang out. We went canoeing, played horseshoes, went to the lake and had bonfires everynight! The little kids had such a great time playing and playing together. You were very helpful in taking care of all our questions/concerns and making us all feel welcome. Thank You. PS. The kids spent part of everyday on those swings under the big tree. It was great.
