The Space15x15 rooms with knotty pine floor, flat screen TV/cable and internet included, your own heater, pots pans and dishes with a gas range/oven. Stacked timber walls and exposed beam ceilings make it feel just right. Host is always around to answer questions. Picnic area with pergola. Dog run-bring your polite pet for no extra charge.
Inside the lodge is the owner's suite with a king sized bed (extra charge-$25) and 4 additional guest rooms with 2 beds each. Two of the upstairs rooms have queen beds and single beds ($15 extra), and two have king beds and single beds ($25 extra). Just pay the difference when you get here if you want an upgrade.
Down town is a 5 minute walk. The North Platte River is even closer. The Hobo Pool hot springs is always open, always free, and about 8 minutes by foot. Shuttle to floating the river, cross country skiing or other activities (pay my gas please). Guest AccessYour space is completely private--your own exterior door and your car is 5 feet away. Use the central gourmet kitchen and 18x30 fireplace room with 12 person dining table and seating for talking and a beverage-no extra charge. Outdoors there's a brick patio and pergola with a grill and firepit. A beautiful view of the Snowy Range and Sierra Madre mountain-included.
Across the street is 20 acres of Natural Resource land with ponds and grassland inhabited by deer, fox, and a wide variety of birds.
To the west is another series of ponds bordering my neighbors hobby farm with goats, chickens, ducks, geese and six orphan steers. Awaken to a rooster's crow in the distance! Walk your dog undisturbed, or let him/her off leash in the fenced dog run. Interaction with GuestsI'm here in the Gathering Room, an 18x30 log-wall area with a 13x13 gourmet kitchen, fireplace, comfortable seating and a dining table that seats 12. Just let me know what you need.... The NeighborhoodSaratoga sits 8 miles east of the Snowy range, and 20 miles north of the Sierra Madre, each with 12,000 foot plus peaks that are covered with snow much of the year. Copperline is located across Rochester Street from a Natural Resources reserve where you can pick out deer almost any time. In front of your room is one of two 80 foot pine trees that have been growing there since the '50s. Rustic luxury--that's my phrase for it. Getting AroundBring your car. There's no Uber in our town. But we're only 4 blocks from our thriving downtown, and the town's perimeter is one mile side-to-side in any direction, so walking or biking is popular.
If you need a shuttle to or from floating the river or fishing or x-country skiing or a night on the town-just let me know. Other Things to NoteThere are 2 suites upstairs, each having bedrooms connected by their own jack&jill bathroom with a king bed for the adults and bunk beds for your young ones. There's also a laundry room ($1/load), area to run your dog, picnic facilities, and a place to park you snowmobile trailer (or whatever toys you brought along).
