We are WELCOMING guests! Listing B is for 1-2 persons. This is a private room with a sunrise window view. Guests share a country kitchen and two dining areas, three fridges, two pantries, full laundry, grand area and bathrooms. Look at Listing A and E photos to see more of the inside and outside of the whole Lodge and be excited about what you’ll enjoy when you come. Read "The Space" and "Guest Access" BEFORE BOOKING. Then auto-book!
Staying here is much like being at home! Truly. Coffee is ready by 6:00.
The main appeal is our earthy, home-like atmosphere plus instant access to expanses of BLM land simply by stepping off the front deck.
The forest encloses the Lodge, right up to the structure and long driveway. There is no landscaping or mowed lawns, but we built three fenced in perennial flower beds attached to the natural forest vegetation and landscape.
It is plentifully surrounded by super large Rocky Mountain granite boulders and forested areas but also has many grassy "park" areas where deer and elk graze and bears with cubs meander through in season.
The Lodge's deck runs across its front southern exposure and all alongside the Lodge on the west side plus there is a patio on the east side.
The Lodge has a private septic system and well. We're watchful about "products" that may not be beneficial to our situation, and monitoring items (such as bar soaps, shampoos, conditioners, face masks, hair dyes, laundry detergents, fabric softeners – any product that could gum up or plug up or interfere with the purity and performance of our water or septic system or laundry amenity).
For example, one guest's mud-based facial mask did not dissolve as advertised and temporarily plugged the bathtub drain, and another guest's choice of laundry detergent and fabric softener sheets left a pungent odor in the washer and drier that infiltrated other guest's laundry. Of course, we supply products, so what is needed is here for you. Thank you for helping us with this situation.
We provide furnishings, pictures, lamps, bedding, etc., that have "feel good" appearance and utility. We ask guests to let us know if they desire to rearrange, remove or replace our items.
If you have any special needs or concerns, we want to know so we can prepare for you. Please message, email or call us about them.
This paragraph may be pleasant to consider, even make you smile. Some guests are dealing with dog, and some with cat sensitivities. Consider the Lodge dog (Pete) and outdoor mouser cat (Zoey). I bring Pete into the kitchen to feed him. And oftentimes Pete's big brown eyes and "smile" temporarily get him inside the Lodge. That’s OK. But he’s not to sleep inside or be on any furniture or in anyone’s bedroom. Even though we vacuum, dust, wash carpet, upholstered furniture and bedding regularly, there's a possibility that the very sensitive person to dog dander will be affected. The cat never comes inside. If you pet it (and you will), please wash your hands when you come inside, and if you've held it against your clothing (and you will), please think about how a cat's dander can transfer to furniture, carpeting and bedding etc., and maybe set aside an outfit (and a place to keep it - perhaps inside a plastic bag), and wear it when you're wanting a serious "kitty fix" encounter.
Cleaning requires we have access to your space, even when you aren't there.
Please smile here too. The Hostess is unbending about these expectancies: 1) All food, dirty dishes and beverages (except for water), are kept and eaten in the kitchen and dining areas only. 2) Racks and baskets are handy for keeping clothing and towels (wet or dry) OFF CARPETING, UPHOLSTERED AND VARNISHED FURNITURE, AND BEDDING. 3) Lodge bedding is for use on beds, not on the floor. Thank you.
Please report your valuables to the Hostess.
Here's what was discovered early in our Airbnb adventures. On the way to our address, GPS apps (but not MapQuest) lead guests to a non-accessible BLM road (called the Old Liverpool Mine Road) and auto text may substitute Maggie Hill Lane for Maggie Hill Road. Either way, Guests are directed through a post and pole mill yard, where the electronic voice repeatedly recalculates you to circle round and round log piles. This was the experience of a few (who did not remember to download MapQuest or who did not double check the entry to see if it was Lane or Road). They laughingly remember the adventure of the circling experience, in the dark, with no landmarks or road signs to tell them where they were, and no wifi signal to download the app. But, their cell phones still worked! So please download MapQuest.
When you book, indicate the number of guests if more than 1.
Storage space for your skiing, hunting, hiking, bike riding, etc., equipment is in the garage .
Allen Mountain Lodge, established in 1983, is well-used, well preserved and a rustic weathered beautiful place. It's been at various times a 4-H horsemanship training and riding facility, a horse hospital, home between homes for five families, housing for traveling musicians, contract nurses, student interns, bow and rifle hunters. Its main attraction is its seclusion, nearness to BLM forestland, wildlife, serenity and beauty encircling and touching the Lodge, natural wild parks, flowers, native grasses, sagebrush bushes, but no mowed lawns! Welcome!
The Lodge is accessed through a small subdivision called Maggie Minor Subdivision, which is an old mining claim converted into six private and secluded homesites. The lodge is located at the Southwest end of Maggie Hill Road and is an access point to miles and miles and miles of BLM Land.
