Mellow Moon Lodge
An upscale but down-to-earth, boutique property, we cater to the outdoor enthusiast. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or two months into the Divide; we strive to be your home away from home. Dogs are always welcome, we have an onsite bike shop, there’s a fire-pit for beers in the evening and good coffee in the morning. On top of all of that, we are a proud eco-chic outpost free from single-use plastic, harsh chemicals, or bad vibes.
Bring your toys and come adventure with us.
Where to find it
The Mellow Moon is conveniently located in the center of the world-class Del Norte trail system, five minutes from the Rio Grande River, an hour from the Great Sand Dunes National Park, and only 30 minutes from Wolf Creek Ski Area.
Good to know
We love dogs! We have dogs! All that being said, there’s a few things to keep in mind if you decide to bring your furry family member on vacation with you. First off, we charge $25 per dog for up to four days and only allow two dogs per room. And if you think you’re super stealthy and can sneak them in… yeah.. we’ll know, we’ll charge you anyway AND give you dirty looks because that’s just not cool. Additionally, we highly recommend taking a look at our policy page for specifics on our pet policy because you can never be too educated, and please note, we love cats too but unfortunately are not able to accommodate them due to allergy concerns.
If you are traveling with a dog, please let us know ahead of time so that we can make note on your reservation. It’s simple, just shoot us a quick email below
