“We would rather have a full motel of adventurers than a few guests paying expensive room rates,” says Eddy Young, General Manager of LOGE Breckenridge.
LOGE is a company committed to and built around the foundation of bringing people together, connecting with each other and accessing the outdoors.
“Inspired by the surf, climbing and camping culture of the 1970s and the relaxed energy of a road trip with friends, LOGE inspires people to get out and explore together,” shares Young. “We find forgotten motels near our favorite towns and trails, and bring them back to life with a variety of ways to stay like hotel rooms, hostel bunks and campsites.”
From on-site gear rentals to fire pits and free live music, LOGE delivers a welcoming outdoor-adventure focused experience at each of its locations: Westport, Washington; Leavenworth, Washington; Bend, Oregon; Mt. Shasta, California, and now, Breckenridge, Colorado.
“We selected Breckenridge as our first location in Colorado as it is a year-round destination and offers everything from skiing to hiking and fishing for all ages and abilities, set against a stunning backdrop of mountains, rolling fields and quaint Victorian architecture,” Young says.
MOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS, REDEFINED
We arrived at the LOGE Breckenridge and parked just outside our door. There is no need to check in at the lobby as our code was sent to us via email to access our designated room.
The more adventures my wife, dog and I take, the more gear we acquire. The more gear we acquire, the more stuff we seem to travel with, and the more stuff we travel with means many trips up and down the elevator and through hotel lobbies for most getaways. As nice as a fancy hotel can feel, we have also come to enjoy the conveniences of motel-style accommodations.
The LODGE took it a step further, designing their concept around the adventure traveler. Those who come overloaded with gear, dogs and whatever else needed to complete the mission are fully welcome here. There are two wall-mounted bike racks in the room, plus ski and snowboard racks with boot dryers as well. Multiple sleeping options are available too, from your traditional queen-sized bed and pull-out couch to a hammock hung from the ceiling. Furry friends are welcome here, and that’s wonderful.
LOGE Breckenridge is located three miles from downtown Breckenridge (just on the outskirts of Breckenridge), offering ample access to skiing and a nearby trail system that you can access directly from your room for trail running, biking or just a quick hike with the pup. The bike path and bus stop are just steps away from your room. During our September stay, we made it to our dinner reservations on our bikes in under 10 minutes and the next day we rode right out the door to a fantastic 20-mile mountain bike ride. In the winter, you are close to Keystone and Copper and you can catch the bus directly to Breckenridge.
‘FOSTERING A COMMUNITY’
“A large part of LOGE is fostering a community experience and with our recent renovations, we feel we have ample space to spreadout and enjoy the property safely with other guests,” says Young. “From having a quick conversation in the cafe over a latte or congregating around the campfire to reminiscing on a great powder day, it’s always one of my favorite aspects of the camp to see guests interacting with one another.”
So, if you don’t have a pack of dogs, a 4×4 Sprinter van and have hiked all the 14ers in Colorado, are you welcome at the LOGE? Heck yeah!
As Young explains, LOGE is all about creating community and getting you outside. Each room has some great outdoor products you can use while staying, from YETI Coolers to BioLite headlamps and Rumpl blankets. If you like the adventure gear the LOGE supplies, you can buy it onsite. LOGE has created great relationships with some top outdoor companies to help provide their guests a chance to experience the gear and take it home with them that day.
The LOGE does not simply want to create just another place to stay — they want to create valuable experiences in underutilized spaces while fostering connection and being outside. You can have your next corporate event at a LOGE property. You can join the LOGE Squad for special member perks and a deeper sense of community.
You can stay connected to the LOGE Squad and their adventures on “Passenger Seat,” the LOGE podcast. Or you can stop in for a beverage or enjoy a free concert as their properties are open to the public.
“What guests can look forward to with a winter stay at LOGE Breckenridge is that we are an adventure hub,” Young explains. “You’ll be able to grab a great cup of coffee and burrito before hitting the slopes, then return to your room where you can hang your board to dry and throw your boots on a boot warmer to ensure they’re toasty for the next day. After a day outdoors, you can trickle over to the cafe for a refreshment and to cozy up next to the fire where you can chat with other guests and share your adventure stories. If you’re not a die-hard skier, you can rent our gear (snowshoes, cross country skis or fat tire bikes) and take off to the nearby trails from the hotel. There’s really something for all ages and abilities to enjoy here.”
