About Squirrel Creek Lodge
Squirrel Creek Lodge is a beautiful, modern, yet rustic lodge in the heart of Colorado. Opening in the fall of 2011, the lodge itself is situated on 3 acres and surrounded by state park land. Conveniently located near the intersection of 470 & Santa Fe in Douglas County, the lodge provides the perfect setting for your next event, romantic dinner or just a place for you to enjoy a fun evening dancing the night away.
Squirrel Creek is an oasis in the city with beautifully appointed rooms all done with a Colorado mountain lodge feel. Solid oak floors, majestic wood walls and cathedral ceilings all enhance your experience. There is also ample free parking for over 200 vehicles on our well lit grounds.
The grand main entrance brings you into the first room of the lodge and provides a large front check-in for guests with its own seating areas, fireplace, shuffleboard table, flat panel televisions and a two well bar with seating. There is also a secure coat check if you wish to leave purses or coats.
The game room is situated facing undeveloped state park land to enjoy the wildlife and boasts two pool tables, seating for 10 with side tables and a flat panel television.
The main hall has a very large dance floor with stage on one end for a band, state of the art sound and lighting, full effects equipment, seating for 80 to 140 depending on configuration. This includes rustic leather sofas, beautiful wood tables with lodge style wood chairs. There are also two vintage pinball machines for your enjoyment at one end. Also in the main room is a 60 ft. bar with three wells, coolers and 3 flat panel televisions.
Attached to the main hall is a four season outdoor porch with seating for 20 with views of the beautiful grounds of Squirrel Creek.
Our kitchen is modern, clean and very well appointed and is quite large with over 3,700 sq. ft. of prep, cold lines, hot lines and just about everything needed to produce any menu desired. Also included is 1,500 sq. ft. of dry storage, 3 walk-in coolers, 1 walk-in freezer, multiple reach-in coolers and freezers as well as loading dock and ramp access for all of the above.
Our outdoor grounds are designed with you in mind and provide a relaxing, private environment for you to enjoy year round. There are multiple areas, all surrounded by undeveloped state park with outdoor lighting and a special enclosure for our favorite pets for you to feed. Spend some time relaxing in a hammock, soaking in the hot tub or refresh in one of our outdoor showers. The hot tub is open year round, has a large cedar deck, plenty of towels and in the evening, tiki torches enhance the scene. The showers are always hot, although they are considered seasonal. There are 9 cabanas with craftsman’s style cedar daybeds to escape the sun or listen to the band away from the crowds. There are two stone outdoor fire pits stocked with plenty of wood to take away the chill of a fall evening or just relax with some friends. Sitting among the cabanas is a 450 sq. ft. tipi with 4 craftsman’s style daybeds, a plasma television and a moss rock fire pit in the middle. This is a popular place to hide away with friends or make new friends.
Just steps from the main lodge, off the outdoor deck is our Scarlagon stage. A beautiful 650 sq. ft. stage with 30’ circle truss for events, bands, weddings or whatever you desire. It is made from cedar and is the perfect backdrop for any event!
