Welcome to the Brooklyn Lodge experience. We are a "National Historic Place" nestled in a tall pine forest between two babbling trout streams in the middle of the Medicine Bow National Forest. Our lodge gives you spectacular views that stir the soul. The Brooklyn Lodge has been the ideal setting for weddings, receptions, retreats, family gatherings, and couples' getaways for over 90 years.
After you awaken in the morning to freshly brewed coffee and savor our famous family-style breakfast, you may choose to pamper yourself with a quiet walk through wildflowers or sit on the porch swing and contemplate the beauty around you. In the afternoon we will treat you to plenty of fresh baked cookies.
In the quiet of the evening back at Brooklyn Lodge, prop up your feet and relax around our campfire or read that good book you've been meaning to start. Sit on the porch or corral fence overlooking a flowered mountain meadow that some of the West's most famous cowboys and cowgirls shared. If you've never seen the moon come up over mountain meadows or the brightness of stars at this altitude, you have quite a treat in store. Words can't describe. Perhaps you might even hear a cowboy with his guitar.The warm ambiance of this "National Historic Place" is found in the native hand-hewn logs and two huge stone fireplaces.
It's special to know you are a part of the same clear, pristine setting that lured Buffalo Bill Cody's sidekicks, Hoots and Hattie Jones, to build on this spectacular site, high atop the Snowy Range mountains at 10,200 feet elevation.
Brooklyn Lodge is located just 700 feet off the Snowy Range Highway 130, designated in 1989 as one of the first National Forest Service "Scenic Byways". Here you will have easy access to the lodge and our permanent residents and friends--chipmunks, deer, marmots, moose, elk, fox, black bears, coyotes, mountain lions, jays, hummingbirds, bluebirds and a huge variety of finches--just to name a few.
Our beautiful lodge is available for you to share as a full-lodge vacation rental, individual bed and breakfast accommodations, wedding and reception venue, or retreat site. We start bookings up to a year and a half in advance, so reservations are required. Call for specific pricing and information, so we can help make your special event everything you'd ever hoped it would be. We look forward to making your special occasion an extra special one, at Brooklyn Lodge.
