Mountain Views at Affordable Rates!

The Chief Hosa Lodge, designed by architect Jules Jacques Benois Benedict 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.

The Perfect Choice for a Winter Wedding

The venue was amazing. Easy to work with, great location, and the space was perfect. We got a lot of compliments throughout the wedding. Thank you Mark for making the process so easy.

Beautiful Venue for a Wedding!

We recently held our wedding at Chief Hosa Lodge. We initially fell in love with this venue because of the look and feel of the place but later found many more reasons to fall in love. The process of signing up for walkthroughs and making reservations was a little confusing because of the Denver Parks and Rec Website, but their customer support staff is excellent and provide helpful and prompt information when you ask. Mark, the venue manager/coordinator/groundskeeper/overall great guy, was really fantastic to work with; he is very involved and you can tell he enjoys helping people and loves Chief Hosa Lodge. His recommendations for set up, decorations, timeline, vendors, etc. were indispensable and really made planning easier. The lodge itself worked out perfectly for our wedding. We opted to have the ceremony outside on the patio because the view is incredible and the reception was held inside. Our guest count was around 90 people, which felt like the maximum you would want and still be comfortable. If you’re looking for a mountain wedding we highly recommend Chief Hosa!
