Overview

Florissant Lodge Rental Photos and Description

14 Bedrooms (4 Masters), 7 Sleep Nooks, Large Common Areas, 45 Acres to Explore

TihsreeD (Tiz-reed) Lodge is a magical luxurious mountain estate. It is the perfect place to relax, build bonds, and create memories. If you are looking for 'Quintessential Colorado', you have found it!.

We are a private mountain venue less than an hour from Colorado Springs in Teller County, Colorado. The Lodge is on 45 secluded acres with wonderful views of Pikes Peak. Warm and luxurious, TihsreeD provides a rustic elegance to its guests.

The lodge sleeps 40 onsite in two 6-bedroom log estate homes plus an apartment. With 14 bedrooms, 7 Sleep Nooks and 9 bathrooms, there is room for the whole gang.

Our reception barn holds up to 100 guests for special events. All events at TihsreeD come with free use of tables, chairs, linens, sound system, valet parking and ceremony officiant.

Modern destination couples who want to bring together both families to spend time building relationships, creating memories and having fun together love TihsreeD Lodge. Imagine watching your guests go from strangers/acquaintances on the first day to family with many shared memories by your wedding day!

TihsreeD is a destination site that is relaxed yet elegant. We have relationships with wedding planners, photographers, caterers, and other wedding professionals should you need referrals, however, we do not require you to use any specific vendor. We allow you to serve food and alcohol on your own terms.

Our very central location puts your guests close to fun things to do while visiting Colorado. Florissant Fossil Bed Monument is just down the road. There are horse stables, hiking trails, ATV rentals, fishing lakes/rivers, microbreweries, skiing, rafting and more an hour or less away. In fact, there are plenty of activities to keep everyone busy less than 5 miles from the Lodge: free historical museum, local artisan shops, hiking, rock hunting, fishing and more.

But why even leave the Lodge! Your guest will enjoy the 3.5 miles of private hiking, digging for rare minerals on site, hunting for Native American modified trees, feeding wood into one of the many outdoor fireplaces, or soaking in one of the three hot tubs. Perhaps whacking some golf balls from the golf tees would be fun for them, or playing horseshoes, ladder ball or corn hole. There are plenty of fun indoor and outdoor activities right on the property.

If you book for the week, you may use the barn multiple times at no additional cost. Host a welcome party/ice breaker on day 1, a family movie/game night later in the week, and have both your rehearsal and ceremony/reception in the barn. There are many lovely spots outside for your ceremony as well.

We are very flexible and want your special day to be all you hope it will be. If you chose us, great! If not, we still wish you much joy and success as you move forward. Please give us a call so we can begin helping you make your wedding the Rustic Colorado Adventure you hope it will be.

More about the Lodge Accommodations:

Perfectly balanced between the 'necessities' and 'getting away from it all', the 45 acre retreat has spectacular views and abundant wildlife. Both houses are log homes with many custom touches. Wrap around decks allow you to enjoy beautiful Pikes Peak views. Outdoor areas include: large patios with fireplaces, hot tubs, and a tee box. You and your guests can end the day with a cozy fire or a warm soak as you marvel at thousands of bright stars overhead.

As you enter The Lodge you will be greeted with a wall of windows as well as a floor to ceiling stone fireplace in one of the two spectacular great rooms. Unique art and antiques are showcased throughout the home. Whimsical additions include a vintage Pepsi dispenser and a Bally pinball machine in the lower level bar area.

You and your guests can select from 14 spacious bedrooms, 4 of which are master suites. Many of the rooms feature a sleeping nook perfect for parents with children.

About Donald Moore, Toni Blackwell

We always discussed the possibility of entering the lodging business and in 2010 decided to go for it. We have had a wonderful time sharing the lodge and meeting wonderful people from all over the world. We would enjoy hosting you during your Colorado adventure.

Toni is a chemist, teacher, and artist. She enjoys making the Lodge look special and is always available to assist you with you stay.

Don is financial services consultant and the general handy man for the Lodge.

Both Toni and Don are marathon runners, skiers, and cyclists. Their goal is to ensure that your time at Tihsreed is memorable and that you will want to return.

Donald Moore, Toni Blackwell purchased this lodge in 2006

Why Donald Moore, Toni Blackwell chose Florissant

Tihsreed is a truly magical place. We are sited in the center of the state so you have just a short drive to the best Colorado has to offer and if you choose to stay put, we have plenty of fun for you on site: a golf tee, hiking trails, hot tub, dvds, fireplaces, wildlife and much more.

We are built on the historic Ute Native American vision quest trail. Many of our trees were culturally modified over hundreds of years by the Ute warriors as they made prayers, held ceremonies and completed their vision quests. When you visit, we believe you will agree that our property feels holy.

What makes this lodge unique

Tihsreed Lodge is decorated with fun and whimsical items, all for sale. There are games, collectibles, antiques and tchotchke that you will enjoy viewing. Many guests choose to purchase items to take home as mementos of their Colorado vacation.

We are located at 9000 feet above sea level, so a hike on the property will give you an extra effort work out. There are swings along the path and many deer live on the property. The views of Pikes Peak and the Collegiate Mountains are beautiful.

It is uncommon to find a spot so private, yet with so much space. Large groups can enjoy the time together, yet have room for private time to reflect. There is something magical about being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday and having time to really build relationships.

Our guests leave with a real Colorado experience. They have had wonderful mountain air, water and views. Guest leave with a Rocky Mountain high in their head and their hearts.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had a wonderful and memorable vacation at Tihsreed. The home is beautiful, very clean, spacious and well appointed. Our family of seven was extremely pleased with the seclusion and privacy the home offers. We will return. Don, you are the best.

What a perfect weekend! The spot is gorgeous, the lodge was huge yet cozy, clean and had everything we could have possibly needed, and Toni and Don were exceptionally helpful from the moment we made the reservation through our weekend stay. We loved it and hope to be back! Thank you!

Beautiful home & property with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. The home was clean and well maintained. Don and Toni have worked to furnish the home with things that will make your stay comfortable and fun including games and reading material. Their customer service was excellent. I felt comfortable calling with questions before our stay and they were available during our stay if we needed anything. The outside property was great for hiking or just sitting out on one of the outside living areas and relaxing. We would love to go back and stay again.

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we drove through the mountains up to the beautiful Log estate we new this would be an amazing vacation. Don and Toni were the great host they were there to help us when we were looking for places to ride our ATV's and when we where in search of food they where also great to just talk with about the mountains and life in southern Colorado. The Estate was amazing we had 17 people there 8 adults and 9 kids and we had more than enough room and everyone loved the house and the land it was on. We walked the trails everyday, played horse shoes, swung out over the side of the mountain, relaxed in the hot, and enjoyed family dinners in the house. The day we left we all had to shed a tear to be leaving such a beautiful home in a breath taking surrounding. We are already thinking about how and when we can come back again.

Gorgeous Cabin with Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

The TihsreeD Lodge was absolutely beautiful! It was very relaxing to have a little seclusion but also lots of family oriented activities around the cabin. The cabin is very well maintain and clean. The owners are also very nice and really helpful. They took the time to stop in and say hello and gave us great recommendations for site seeing. This is the best cabin I've stayed in and I'd love to go back!

Gorgeous Mountain Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Huge lodge with resort amenities and everything you could possible want for a vacation escape. Not far from civilization (if you must!), but close to Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, Pikes Peak Historical Society Museum, all the attractions of Cripple Creek, golfing in Woodland Park and fishing and horseback riding at multiple nearby locations. Or, do as we did and enjoy relaxing on the premises. Morning coffee on the decks; evening wine in front of the outdoor fireplace and in the hot tub. Who needs to go anywhere else. Don and Toni are the most gracious of hosts and provide everything you could possibly need. Bring food and drink and you are set!!
