Your guests 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 hot tubs. Perhaps whacking some golf balls from the golf tee 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.

Why Toni and Donald Moore 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.

Perfect Location to host a Small Wedding
We rented the lodge along with the cabin and reception barn for our small wedding. We had around 35 people in attendance with the majority staying in either the cabin or reception for the extended weekend. It was the perfect spot to host an intimate wedding with so many extras included. We went hiking, saw wildlife, went hot tubbing, and played yard and bored games throughout the weekend. Don and Toni were extremely accommodating and had everything you needed. Although the weather was unpredictable for our May wedding, everyone worked together well to make it work. I loved this place as well as everyone that enjoyed the weekend with us. We hope to go back in five years with the same group of people to relive this perfect weekend. Highly Recommended!
A special wedding venue/family gathering location
We will never forget our stay at TihsreeD. It was one of very limited wedding venues we checked out and immediately knew it was what we were looking for - a place for both of our families to gather and spend a weekend with everything on site. All of our guests fully enjoyed their stay and of course, have called it the "best wedding ever." I'm biased but, I agree. We were able to have our dog in our ceremony and on site which greatly eased my worries and made my day. We were allowed the freedom to decorate the barn as we wished and made it our own for the day. We also set up our walkway and arch and hosted a fun reception night in the barn. We wanted to host our wedding in a location that felt like one of our homes - and that's what this felt like! Wishing we could get married every year! (Ok, not really.)
What a fabulous spot! We utilized all parts of the property - hiking trails, hot tub, outdoor fireplace, etc. such fun.
We had an amazing wedding and party for our guests at Tihsreed! Everyone was able to stay and was totally comfortable in one of the many beautiful rooms they had available. We had a few too many guests that weren't able to stay on the property, so Toni and Don took care of renting the Cowboy Cove up the street for them which worked out great! All our family and friends are still talking about how our wedding was the best...great venue and service, beautiful place and so relaxing! We'd would recommend getting married or having a family reunion here in a heart beat.
Thanks for everything Toni and Don!
Picture and Comfort Perfect
Beautiful, Spacious, and Fun! We had our wedding at Tihsreed and it couldn't have been a more perfect setting! Our family and friends stayed there with us and we have such great memories to share now!
Great time -- highly recommended
This home has a great mountain lodge feel. It was very well equipped and owners were available if needed, but did not see them otherwise. We had the mountain to ourselves. The outdoor fireplace was a big hit. We had three families in the main lodge -- each essentially had their own floor for privacy when desired, but then we met in the huge living area or outdoor patio when we wanted to get together.
There is no cell or internet at the lodge (which I thoroughly enjoyed), but some may not. Great place to play games and talk to each other, do a puzzle or read a book. As remote as it is, you are only about 20 minutes from Safeway, Walmart etc and all you could ever need. I highly recommend TishreeD Lodge and will be back next time we are in CO.
Amazing Family Reunion Experience
We booked the entire TihsreeD property for a family reunion and it literally could not have been a better experience. The location is stunning and the accommodations were very comfortable and provided everything we needed for our stay. I was impressed by the quality of all the furnishings, too. Toni and Don are great hosts and we always enjoyed our interactions with them during our stay. They were also very gracious when we wore out the corn hole bags. I can't wait until our next reunion!
