Luxury spa like amenities in a rural setting. Shared hot tub and sauna, warm robes and slippers and complementary herbal teas. Come experience the Old West as it was and still is as you meander along the road through working ranches that were homesteaded back in the early 1900’s...their weathered log cabins still standing and often still occupied...others are close enough for a great “back in time” photo opportunity. As Colorado's open range law permits ranchers to graze their cattle without borders, you will often find them on the roadways or you may even get caught up in a cattle drive as the ranchers move their cattle from one pasture or paddock to another. Springtime brings all the calves and branding time! Observing the rancher, his horse, and dog working together is a genuine treat. Look along the roadside for sage grouse, in the open fields for pronghorn, down in the willows and streams for the bull moose, in the trees for the mule deer, and on top of the ridge lines for the elk. There are also bald eagle and osprey nests, alpacas, horses, sheep, and goats. All this just on the ride into Williams Fork Lodging! Our residence sits above this scenic panorama at the end of the road and adjacent to public lands tucked beneath Copper Peak on the Williams Fork Range. The elevation is roughly 8,500 feet and the 180 degree view is breathtaking...encompassing three mountain ranges, many peaks, pastures/meadows, forest, and ponds. Soak in everything from the glorious sunrises to enchanting full moons to brilliant stars that truly seem closer than they are…the view of the Milky Way is unobstructed by light pollution for outstanding celestial shows…and meteor showers are spectacular from the hot tub! We live on the same property as the Lodge and are quite self sustainable: hunting, fishing, gardening, gathering wild berries, and raising our own poultry meat. The Lodge and cabin are constructed of concrete and rock as well as high efficiency windows and takes full advantage of passive solar heat; backup heat and the hot water are provided by wood via an outside boiler maintained by us. Upon check in, you are greeted with farm fresh eggs from our chickens. And if interested, Dale offers fresh baked caramel rolls and other enticing breads and/or meals. Every season has it's own special beauty: Spring brings abundant wild flowers, contrasting greens of pine, aspen and sage. Newborn livestock and wildlife. Thunderstorms and brilliant double rainbows. Birds singing, chickens crowing and warm, quiet evenings are welcomed in summer. Our view of the fall colors are hard to match ~ the changing yellow, gold and reds quaking in the valley are quite beautiful. Winter brings diamond-sparkling white snow untouched by humans and cobalt blue skies and picture-perfect post card and right out your Our Lodge can be rented as one unit with 3 queen bedrooms and additional beds for up to 10 guests. The lodge can also be rented as individual units: All three units have a queen bedroom…each with additional sleeping areas. Each unit is filled with all the luxury and everyday amenities you need for a complete stay. We allow dogs too! Williams Peak Suite has a doggie door leading to a six-foot tall kennel run! NOTE: dogs cannot be left alone when you leave. Bills Cabin offers luxury camping in a forested environment with numerous foot and bike trails right out your door! The total darkness provides a spectacular night time sky full of stars and constellations perfect for viewing from the deck. Expect to see wild life in our exclusive off grid cabin, while you enjoy an Ecco friendly vacation! Bill’s Mountain Cabin sits on the edge of a hill that provides vast views of mountain ranges, hay fields, forest and sky.

Top notch quiet and beautiful spot!
Fantastic location deep down country roads into the beautiful, empty spaces of the mountain range. Dale was a fantastic host, our views were absolutely lovely, and we had everything we needed on site to have a gorgeous stay - this area acts as a fantastic basecamp for so many types of outdoor adventures in the region. Thank you so much for everything - we'll be recommending this spot and hopefully be back soon!

Perfect scenic retreat!
We loved our stay at Bill's Cabin! Dale was a very easy going host who supplied us with everything we needed (highly recommend the cinnamon rolls)! The land was so beautiful and the trails were fun to explore. We enjoyed watching the sunrise on the cabin porch, and sitting in the hot tub as the sun set. It was a great getaway, perfect for me and my boyfriend. We look forward to renting again!

Byers Peak Lodge Room
We were on the 2nd floor for two nights and found it very quiet and relaxing. The space was welcoming, clean, and organized. This space could easily accommodate a group of people. Kitchen had everything we needed for meal prep and cooking and the grill was really great, too. Hot tub under the stars was awesome and trails abound for hiking. Will definitely recommend!
