River House Lodge
Steamboat Springs, Colorado
Nestled within the cottonwoods of Elk Creek sits the River House Lodge. As a centerpiece of Marabout Ranch the lodge is a resort destination that captures the essence of the Rocky Mountain lifestyle. Winner of the PCBC Gold Nugget Grand Award for the Best Public Private Recreation Use Facility, Marabou is a 1,700 acre Ranch Resort Community placed within a conservation easement that preserves over 80% of the property as a working ranch. The design was based on a conscious process of conservation and preservation of the Western ideology, aesthetic, and lifestyle of the local ranching community.
