About the property

6 Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms, Sleeps 16 Comfortably

God's Country Lodge is just the site for your next family, church, executive, or hunting retreat. Located in the center of the 'western slope' of Colorado, this remote retreat is for guests who want to 'get away from it all.'

This rustic-elegant and spacious vacation lodge on 40 private acres of pinion and juniper trees is situated just outside of Crawford Colorado, with breath-taking views of the West Elk Wilderness Mountain range, the Needle Rock (a 700-ft. volcanic monolith) and Grand Mesa. The entrance to the north rim of the beautiful Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is 3 miles away.

This 6,000 square foot, two-story lodge features two kitchens (one is fully equipped), a great room, a recreation room, seven bathrooms, and six bedrooms. Extra features include a huge fireplace, wet bar, two TVs, wireless internet, pool table, gas barbeque and a steam room. The taxidermy mounts (bear, deer, elk, beaver, turkey, etc.) and the unique woods throughout promote a Colorado high-country ambiance.

Activities in the nearby vicinity are hiking, hunting, lake and stream fishing, wine tasting, and horseback riding -- however, God's Country Lodge is so peaceful that you might not want to leave!

Fantastic 3 days in God's Country

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge was fantastic and left nothing to be desired. The kids absolutely loved the game room and there was ample space for everyone. Breath-taking views and the Mule Deer were everywhere.

Fantastic trip, and we hope to come again and stay much longer!

Thank you,

The Hans Family

Very nice property.

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a reunion of college friends from Colorado State University. The view from the deck is truly great. We hung out there a lot in the afternoons and evenings. The house was great. Very well kept, and the kitchen is incredibly well appointed. Cell phone service is spotty, but we found the carport the best place to make a call. Price is good, and we would return.

God's Country Lodge is just the place for your next executive, family, church or hunting retreat. This peaceful home on 35 private acres of juniper and pinion trees is situated just outside of Crawford Colorado, near the entrance to the north rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. It has breath-taking views of the West Elk Wilderness Mountain range, the Needle Rock (a 700-ft. volcanic monolith) and Grand Mesa.

Fly into Grand Junction (GJT) or Montrose (MTJ). Check out ALLEGIANT AIRLINES! Rent a car and drive about an hour to God's Country Lodge. Or... fly into Denver International Airport (DIA) for a beautiful 5-hour drive.

Summer & fall activities in the nearby vicinity include hiking, hunting, water sports, river rafting, lake and stream fishing, wine tasting, art galleries and horseback riding. Winter activities may include ice fishing, ice-skating, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. Day trips to Grand Mesa (1.5 hours away), Ouray (2 hours), Glenwood Springs (2 hours), Aspen (2.5 hours), Crested Butte (2.5 hours), Lake City (2.5 hours) and Telluride (3 hours) are highly recommended. But you might decide to just stay and enjoy the peace and quiet of God's Country Lodge.
