About Denise Avery

My name is Denise Avery and I have lived in the canyon for 24 years and counting. I have raised my 8 beautiful children here. In 2004 working together as a family we transformed the old Hull family property and restaurant into what is now the Cub River Lodge, Guest House & RV Park, LLC. Although my children are grown and gone now, I have continued run and maintain the Ranch. My motto is: "MAY ALL WHO ENTER AS GUESTS, LEAVE AS FRIENDS"!

Over the past 13 years the Ranch has become a favorite of many who have made it the place for their yearly family reunion or getaway. Many wonderful people from all over the world have come and enjoyed a great time here!

Denise Avery purchased this lodge in 2004
