Chief Hosa Lodge

View booking information

The Lodge is less than 30 minutes from Denver in the mountains of Genesee Park, Exit 253 off westbound I-70.  
The Chief Hosa Lodge, designed by architect Jules Jacques Benios Benedidct, became the city’s first mountain lodge opening in 1918. Using timber and stone from the immediate area, Benedict designed the lodge to blend into the hillside. He named the lodge after a Southern Arapaho tribal leader who was given the honorary title ‘Hosa’ by the Ute tribe, which meant ‘peaceful and beautiful’.

Featuring sweeping views of the Continental Divide, along with its stone and log construction, the Chief Hosa Lodge is the ideal venue for a rustic Colorado wedding and is a National Historic Site.
