A breathtaking setting with a casual and comfortable, yet sophisticated, air.
All trips begin and end from the BCA Lodge, which houses a fly shop, library, TV room, pool table and dining hall. The meticulous landscaping creates a relaxing common gathering area. Guests gather for appetizers and wine under the outdoor pergola, then move inside to the newly renovated lodge for three-course dining with meals prepared by our in-house chef, Deanna.
Head Chef (Chef de Cuisine) Deanna Wright has been cooking exceptional meals for guests of The Lodge the past few years. Most of the fresh produce she serves is harvested daily from the bountiful gardens and orchards. In addition to cooking, Deanna is a dedicated mother and talented gardener.
4,000 year-old petroglyphs (Native American drawings etched in rock), are just a short walk from the lodge. Three miles of The Lower Gunnison River wraps around the property providing private water fishing access; several stocked trout ponds offer casting practice and the chance to catch a really big fish. The farm houses a small vineyard with wine grapes grown on the property and wine made specifically for the guests. The 100-year old peach orchard, and working organic farm surrounding the property, make the BCA Lodge a true oasis.
