Cascade Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lemon Lake Lodge is dog and horse friendly

Lemon Lake Lodge - Durango, CO - Outdoors, Vacation

Lemon Lake Lodge is a nicely decorated mountain retreat/split level vacation home nestled in the San Juan Mountains at 10,020 elevation. The Lodge has two levels; the MAIN and the LOWER level. With 4 bedrooms and 3 baths on the upper (main) level, this sleeps 10 adults and 2 children comfortably (4 queen beds, 1 sleeper sofa, and 2 single bunk beds), and is large enough for a couple sleeping bags if the kids want to invite some friends. Includes a large fully equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher and washer/dryer. You, your family and friends can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

For larger groups or families, you may add the lower level, for an additional charge, which has an additional two bedrooms/two baths (queen bed, full size bed and sleeper sofa) which will sleep an additional six people for an additional charge. Inside staircase joins the two levels.

This quaint little vacation spot is the perfect place for; a romantic get-away, a guy’s week of hunting or fishing, large family reunions, or just getting away from city life...

You’ll find plenty of activities to do while staying at Lemon Lake Lodge. From kayaking to boating or maybe a lazy day floating on the lake, you’ll find an abundance of trails to hike and fish to catch. If you feel your inner cowboy coming out you can go horseback riding with one of the Outfitters close by.

Dog and Horse Friendly!

About Sue Singleton

We are a family run business serving families and groups of people from all over the country and we are so very happy to share our beautiful Lodge and views with you.

Sue Singleton purchased this lodge in 2004

Why Sue Singleton chose Cascade

The Location of the Lodge itself is on a remote mountain lake with spectacular views where you can truly get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives and enjoy the quiet of the wilderness broken by the occasional coyote howling in the distance. At night we have very little light pollution up here on the Lake and star gazing is a favorite past time. If you have a telescope and are looking for a great location to star gaze while on vacation this is a great place located at an elevation of 8,300 feet.

The location to the Lake is wonderful and a short walk to the mouth of the Florida River where it empties into Lemon Lake. This is the honey spot for trout fishing.

No need to travel to the forest because you’re right in the middle of the San Juan Forest with your own private access to the Forest from Lemon Lake Lodge property. Just walking out the door from the Lodge is a door opening into the wilderness. From there all you have to do is put one foot in front of the other and you're in prime wilderness and at times you may feel like you’re footsteps are the very first footsteps ever on your path.

We are located near two major trail heads for hiking and horse/mule pack trails. The trails are very well maintained and offer all levels of experience to enjoy.

What makes this lodge unique

No neighbors that you can see from the Lodge. It is total un-obscured wilderness and mountain lake views

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay at the Lemon Lake Lodge. Sue, the owner was extremely pleasant and accommodating. The lodge was great, with large comfortable chairs, a fireplace and large dining table. We had four couples who were all accomdated easily. The outdoor deck has a beautiful view of the lake, and we enjoyed sitting out there. There's a national forest right across the street for hiking. It's located very conveniently to Durango and Mesa Verde for day trips. We had a fabulous time.

What a wonderful retreat..

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Lemon Lake Lodge for the second year in a row and it was as wonderful as the last visit a year ago was..The lake was right across the road and the fish were biting..Our family enjoyed all the fishing, hiking and general relaxation needed when going on a vacation..If you are looking for some piece and quiet Lemon Lake is the place for you..we all had plenty of room and fresh air to take in..My children got a kick out of seeing the deer each night come right up to the cabin and in the morning all the wildlife around the lake. John an Sue were so nice and really make the place feel like home away from home...thanks for another wonderful stay and we hope to see you again next year..Sincerely the Gannetts..

What a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5
Sorry for the late review! I would like to start by saying that pictures do not do this place justice! It is so beautiful and open, and lots of space for anybody with a large group! My family and I stayed here at Lemon Lake June 23rd for five nights. Those six days went by way too fast. The views from the patio and kitchen table on the center level are just breathtaking. It was so awesome to have everything right there. The lake was right across from the cabin and the fishing was great. Lots of areas to hike and just hang out in the shade. We even had a little campfire one night in the back. John and Sue were wonderful and made us feel at home. They were incredibly accommodating and helpful to us and our large group. The one room was so big and was perfect for all of the kiddos we had. I loved the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere with nothing but the lake and the trees. Our family had a wonderful experience and we definitely plan to come back to Lemon Lake Lodge next year at least once ! The front yard was huge and we set up our own bat-mitten net and played every day. John and Sue also offered a game room with a pool table and some other things for our enjoyment if we wanted, along with horseshoes and corn-hole. I highly recommend this cabin as it was well worth what the price is, especially if you are traveling with a large group. You will definitely have enough bathrooms and showers! Thanks again John and Sue, your place was beautiful.

Great place to relax, bbq, and family time!

  • 5 of 5
We spent several days in this lodge during the 4th of July vacation with two friends family. It's a great place to relax with family and friends. If you want a place with rural sightseeing, go fishing, bbq, get rid of city noisy, this is the right place.
Lemon lake is right in front of the lodge, 2 mins walking distance to be at the lake for fishing, taking a walk. 20 mins driving to another bigger Vallecito Lake with boat rental.
Game room is full of fun for kids, equipped with cable TV, internet. Owners are very friendly, patient and helpful.
I would recommend +++++!

This is our second year for a family vacation. We loved it once again and the lake was full and kept rising every day. The guys caught a lot of fish. We are already planning next year's family vacation. Very relaxing. Great family time.
