Welcome to Otter Lodge, a wilderness Tipi. This Tipi is surrounded by a pristine trout stream and sounds of diverse native wildlife. Located in a beautiful valley, the Otter Lodge is the perfect getaway to connect with your most natural self. Take a dip in the stream, enjoy the noises of nearby creatures, and warm up with a night time fire in the comfort of an artistic and rustic shelter. The exterior design of the Tipi was painted by a diversity of guests who have stayed on the property and generously lent a helping hand to this project.
The Tipi sleeps 5 people. There is bedding, pillows, a fire pit, and artistic touches throughout. The fire must be kept low, and we kindly ask that no dogs enter the Tipi, given the proximity to the stream and natural debris.

Serene, beautiful, welcoming
We had a wonderful stay in the tipi with my two sons, ages 10 & 7. This is a very special place-serene and beautiful. Robert and his staff were such welcoming, kind, and gracious hosts. They made us feel very welcome and comfortable. They were especially great with my kids.. The grounds were spectacular! The facilities were all well cared for and extremely clean. The camp sites were spread out. The art studio and Roberts’ collections from his travels etc added a very unique experience.
My kids and I cannot wait to go back. It was a very unique experience and welcome reprieve.
Most amazing adventure
I have never been more amazed at the beauty of nature that I experienced at Lynxs Run Wilderness Retreat. Robert and his crew Kat and Kooper w/a K made the most memorable and enjoyable experience My boys and I could have. I have never felt more like at home and welcomed on a vacation in my entire life. We were welcomed with open arms in a loving experience into their beautiful world. I honestly cannot say enough about our experience and I definitely 120%. Will be coming back. I didn't want to leave the serenity that we felt. Thank you a million times over Robert for your hospitality Grace and love Kat thank you for your compassion with the boys and I and Kooper well just being you Love you all Hope to see you again real soon with deepest gratitude and affection Barbara Cooper and Parker Honker 💜❤️💙
Like a fairy tale
Magical bohemian bliss. I had a wonderful time with my 12 year old daughter staying in the tipi. The creek and the fire provide the perfect sounds to fall asleep to. The host was generous with their wifi and allowed us to do virtual learning in their library. The home is magical and enchanting and all things in between.
What a wonderful experience. Staying right off a small river. The nearby hikes were beautiful. Inside it was very cozy. Bedding could have been a little cleaner but considering it is in a Tipi with an indoor fireplace it worked for the conditions. Definitely will be coming back!
Way more than you can ever imagine!
If you have any thoughts of staying at Lynx Run Wilderness, get ready for an experience of a lifetime. Truly! My husband and three boys were simply looking for peaceful time away disconnected to everything but nature. It was so much more than that; more than we could have ever expected. Rob was an incredible host and we felt like family staying on his property. The space he has provided to share with others is none like any other. We are so grateful that he had a vision years ago and we were able to experience what he has clearly cared for well and curated. Lynx Run Wilderness has the ability to touch many lives in the future and we WILL be back for adventure, peace, community and some good R&R!
Rob is an amazing host and his property very special - our stay in the teepee was magical, but the trip was really enhanced by our interactions with Rob and his kind team. The weekend was a retreat and the locally foraged lions mane mushrooms on top of our home-made pizzas on his newly completed outdoor pizza oven, the beautiful ethereal tree paintings Rob’s made that adorn his home, the walk through the changing leaves on his acres and abutting forest, the hot coffee every morning... just a few of our special memories. The sense of community was perhaps what made the trip most special. Thank you Rob! Keep doing what you do!
