About the Lodge
Wildberry Lodge has 5 guest accommodations (4 rooms and 1 luxury suite) in the Main building. The building of the main lodge began in late 1999 and was completed in early 2002. During this time Ken and Glenda worked diligently to complete the staining and chinking (filling between) the logs. The lines of chinking that had to be filled are estimeated at 3 miles in length.
Decorating the Lodge was the fun part of our dream. We have eclectic artifacts from all over the world, along with original local art (paintings, pottery, brooms, fabric, etc) that you can experience - some pieces are also for sale.
The decor is rustic but sophisticated, luxurious, but casual - you can really relax without "roughing it".
The Lodge opened in May of 2002 with 3 guestrooms. 1 additional room and the Blackberry suite were added in 2003.
The second building "The Cabin at Wildberry" was completed in 2009 and and houses 2 Suites. The Top floor suite is our Honeymoon Suite and is our most luxurious accommodation - With a spa bathroom that cannot be beat. The decor is in the same spirit as the main lodge. Luxurious, but not formal.
The first floor of the cabin houses our Wineberry Suite which we opened October 2012
Trails and Fire pit
Completed July 2011 is the Forest Retreat featuring 2 decks with comfy seating and a stone fire pit with stone slab benches. A short lighted pathway leads from the Lodge to the Fire Pit. Good conversation and S’mores await you!
The Hiking trails are open! We are listening and many of you had asked for hiking trails - We now have a hiking trail that goes to the ridge and loops around one side of the property. More are underway. Bring your hiking shoes.
The Great Room
The Great Room is the focal point of the lodge. The 32 foot high fireplace consists of hand placed Doggett Mountain stone and hides quite a few treasures - see how many you can find...
The Loft area is a gathering place for all guests. It has cold drinks, snacks, satellite television, DVD, and CD player. Guests have access to the innkeepers video, CD, and book collections.
The Game Room
The Game Room, an additional guest gathering place, has a pool table and TV for those rainy days, or unwinding at the end of the day. There is also an Infrared sauna that soothes muscles after a day of hiking.
Green efforts: Our environment is our life-blood and we would like to share our efforts to help preserve it.
Water: We provide reusable (BPA free) sports bottles instead of bottled water, and our 700 foot rock well has the best drinking water you can imagine - and it also makes the best coffee!
Log construction: Sustainable and energy efficient building materials. The main component of all our buildings is logs, a construction material which is fully renewable, and recyclable and have a lower carbon footprint than any other building material. In addition, the logs provide thermal mass. Thermal Mass, refers to the property of a material to store and delay the transfer of heat. This property, along with the natural insulating ability of wood, is what makes log homes exceptionally energy efficient.
Tipi and Spa Retreat
Our new Tipi and Spa retreat will be open in May 2014. Get ready for a real indian Tipi fashioned in the Sioux Indian style that incorporates an infrared Sauna for 2! The Spa deck has a 7 person Jacuzzi Spa with double water fall and views of the mountains. See our facebook page for week by week updates and lots of pictures.
