Gary & Lois Sprague are the innkeepers of the Lodge at Elk Valley. They have 5 children (ages 24 to 16).

Gary has directed a non-profit organization for 25 years that benefits single parents and non-nuclear families. He is a social worker and an ordained minister. He enjoys running in the National Forest (across the street from the Lodge) with his 2 dogs and going to Broncos football games.

Lois is a free-lance artist and illustrator. She paints in several mediums for several different applications: Illustration • Oil • Pastel Watercolor• Graphite/Wash • Charcoal • Portraits. Her paintings can be seen in many local galleries along with almost every room at the Lodge. She enjoys her family and friends and always has a smile on her face.

Gary & Lois Sprague purchased this lodge in 2006

The Pikes Peak region is beautiful and peaceful at the same time. At over 9000 feet, you truly are 'in the mountains.' We decided to move to this area so that we could live in the mountains instead of just look at them. The people in Teller County are friendly and believe that living here is one of life's best kept secrets. Pikes Peak itself is majestic and the views that you get driving from Colorado Springs around the mountain to Divide are some of the best in Colorado. The outdoor activities in the Pikes Peak region attracted us to visit and then we fell in love with the area.

The Lodge at Elk Valley has become very special to all who stay here. When not being rented out, we use this facility as our headquarters for our ministry with single parents and non-nuclear families. Many events have given opportunity for peace, hope, comfort and healing. The facility is amazing! Our rental guests will truly 'Find their Quiet' as they wake up every morning to the views of Pikes Peak and the wildlife on the property. Our Lodge becomes a place of rest, reflection and refocus for our guests. You will return home changed from your stay at the Lodge at Elk Valley.

Romantic Getaway!

The Lodge was perfect for our romantic weekend getaway. We loved how serene and beautiful it was. We drove to Buena Vista - only an hour away to Mt. Princeton, the hot springs and enjoyed a relaxing day there. We also had a romantic, delicious meal at The Swiss Chalet in Woodland Park. We enjoyed hiking, which the lodge has beautiful ample grounds for on the property. The views of Pikes Peak are glorious. Also the owners are so pleasant to work with. We feel so relaxed and rejuvenated as we headed back to Denver this morning.

Wedding and family reunion

We were pleasantly surprised by the lodge. It exceeded the listing description in many ways. The setting is private with incredible views of Pikes Peak, a large meadow on one side, woods off the kitchen, and llamas and horses in a neighboring forested pasture. The lodge was neat and clean with an incredibly outfitted kitchen for regular meals or entertaining. We couldn't think of a thing to add to the kitchen and loved the coffee mug corner which was a big hit every morning as we picked our mugs. There was ample room for all 17 of us around the dining table. We enjoyed the rocking chairs and decks. We loved the large plush towels and the quality of the bedding. The large grill on the kitchen deck was a plus and the dishwasher made cleanup a breeze. We lit the woodburning stove one evening to take the chill out of the air.
Each floor has a common area...we enjoyed watching pictures from the wedding on the large screen on the second floor. The basement provided a place for the kids to play as well a pool table for the older crowd. The piano on the second floor and selection of games added to the fun.
We enjoyed hiking on nearby trails and watched deer walk through the woods right out the kitchen door. Divide has a great wood fired pizza parlor...a few miles away. We found a great gentle trail on the Northwest side of Pikes Peak(I think called the Cobbs). There are hiking trails right down the road from the lodge within walking distance through woods and meadows. Biking would be great on the roads around the lodge also.
One of our party was in an electric wheel chair. There is a ramp that allows for access to the deck and all entryways. Two items that would be helpful are a shower chair and a hand held shower in the main floor suite bathroom. Otherwise, it was absolutely perfect!
The owners were friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this property for a wedding, family reunion, xc skiing, or just getting away with friends or family. I would love to see the lodge in fall and winter. We will be returning in the future for a longer stay.

We rented the lodge for my parents 50th wedding celebration . Over 20 people shared this special event. The cabin was perfect for what we needed . The views were spectacular. There was something for everyone of all ages to do . We couldn't have asked for a better setting. The owner was very nice as well and made sure that we had everything we needed! I would highly recommend using this cabin to anyone !!! Thanks again Gary

I coordinated my brother's military retirement party at the lodge, and it couldn't have been more perfect. Out-of-state guests were delighted with the beautiful accommodations over that Friday through Sunday. We had about 30 guests over the weekend, 10 of whom stayed at the lodge, and there was plenty of room for everyone to feel comfortable. I created an extensive menu for the entire weekend and recruited 5-7 people for any given meal to help me prep, cook, and serve. Every meal was served without a hitch. There was room in the kitchen and facilities for all of us to work our stations, not interrupt the flow of the party, but yet still be in and among the party socially. And we complimented the menu with plenty of BBQ goodness from the large grill on the deck!

Gary and Lois were fantastic proprietors, and we were honored that they and several friends accepted our invitation to join us for dinner on Friday.

From our initial contact, Gary and Lois were at all times gracious, professional, and accommodating. After we checked out, we unknowingly left some personal items at the lodge, and they immediately called us to ensure that our things were returned to us.

We had a perfect experience at the lodge, and are so pleased to have gained new friends in Gary and Lois, and in their friends whom we were fortunate also to have met.
