Thunder Lodge welcomes you to "your home away from home" any season of the year. The lodge is perfectly located on the outskirts of Buena Vista in the heart of the Chaffee County. The cabins sit on the bank of the legendary Cottonwood Creek. 

  • Eight nostalgic, pine log cabins built in 1948, surround the tree covered Central Courtyard in a tranquil creekside setting.

  • Warm, cozy and inviting, all cabins have fully equipped kitchenettes with microwave, toaster and coffeemaker.

Buena Vista, "pleasant view", is quaintly nestled at the base of the majestic Collegiate and Sawatch Mountain Range in a protected valley called the "Banana Belt". We have the largest concentration of mountain peaks that exceed 14,000 ft. elevation in Colorado and the lower 48 states. BV is the ultimate outdoor mecca, with the Arkansas River passing through the valley, we are known as the whitewater rafting capital of the US. No matter the season, staying at Thunder Lodge can be your gateway to the adventures of a lifetime!

Come experience adventure filled days and the most amazing nights under the blanket of stars as the sun fades behind majestic snow capped mountains.
