Spirit West River Lodge Review

Beside the Encampment River, this massive log structure has walls of lichen-covered rocks and large windows overlooking the water and surrounding scenery. Stained glass and Western artwork—most of it by owner R.G. Finney, who is known for his wildlife bronzes and paintings—fill the lodge. His wife Lynn, who serves the full breakfast, is a Senior Olympic gold medalist in cycling and a native of the area. She can direct you to the best cycling routes and cross-country-skiing trails. The lodge has a mile of private-access fishing on the Encampment River, and each room has a private entrance off a deck overlooking the river. The three-bedroom guesthouse has a full kitchen and private access, as well as river frontage. Some units have television and full kitchens.
