In 2021 when the demands for lodging continued to exceed our inventory, we broke ground on a brand new offering – The Cottages at Fort Lewis. These two standalone units are similar in size to our traditional log cabins, but with a fresh, more modern feel. They are located just past the main Lodge building, adjacent to the Pavilion, and a short walk away from The Lewis Mill Restaurant.

Located on the side nearest the Lodge building, this cottage features 14-foot arched ceilings, king size bed, spacious living area, wood burning fireplace, walk-in shower, TV, bluetooth speaker, and private porch with mountain and pasture views. The double size pullout couch can accommodate an additional guest.
