Additional Property Information

TihsreeD (Tiz-reed) Lodge is a magical luxurious mountain estate. It is the perfect place to relax, build bonds, and create memories. If you are looking for 'Quintessential Colorado', you have found it!.

We are a private mountain venue less than an hour from Colorado Springs in Teller County, Colorado. The venue is on 50 secluded acres with wonderful views of Pikes Peak. Warm and luxurious, TihsreeD provides a rustic elegance to its wedding, family reunion and corporate guests.

The venue sleeps 40+ onsite (in two houses plus the apartment). If you rent all three elements (buildings) of the venue you will get 14 bedrooms, 7 Sleep Nooks and 9 bathrooms; room for the whole gang. Keep in mind that automatically generated quotes from HomeAway or VRBO are for The Lodge only. If you wish to accommodate more than 18 individuals you will have to rent The Cabin, The Apartment and/or The Great Hall, there is additional cost. Search "Tihsreed" on Homeaway or VRBO to see the Apartment, The Cabin and our overflow location, Cowboy's Cove.

Our reception barn (Great Hall) holds up to 100 day of event guests. All events at TihsreeD include the use of tables, chairs, white linens, sound system, valet parking, chafing dishes, ceremony officiant and much more.

The two estate homes are 6 bedroom log built houses with two bedrooms on each of three levels. The Lodge is 6800 sq. ft.; The Cabin is 4400 sq. ft.

Destination wedding couples who want to bring together both families to spend time building relationships, creating memories and having fun together love TihsreeD. Imagine watching your guests go from strangers/acquaintances on the first day to family with many shared memories by your wedding day!

TihsreeD is a destination site that is relaxed yet elegant. We have relationships with wedding planners, photographers, caterers, and other wedding professionals should you need referrals, however, we do not require you to use any specific vendor. We allow you to serve food and alcohol on your own terms.

Our very central location puts your guests close to fun things to do while visiting Colorado. Florissant Fossil Bed Monument is just down the road. There are horse stables, hiking trails, ATV rentals, fishing lakes/rivers, microbreweries, skiing, rafting and more an hour or less away. In fact, there are plenty of activities to keep everyone busy less than 5 miles from the Lodge: free historical museum, local artisan shops, hiking, rock hunting, fishing and more.

But why even leave the TihsreeD! Your guests will enjoy the 3.5 miles of private hiking, digging for rare minerals on site, hunting for Native American modified trees, feeding wood into one of the many outdoor fireplaces, or soaking in one of the hot tubs. Perhaps whacking some golf balls from the golf tee would be fun for them, or playing horseshoes, ladder ball or corn hole. There are plenty of fun indoor and outdoor activities right on the property.

If you book for the week, you may use the barn multiple times at no additional cost. Host a welcome party/ice breaker on day 1, a family movie/game night later in the week, and have both your rehearsal and ceremony/reception in the barn. There are many lovely spots outside for your ceremony as well.

We are very flexible and want your special day to be all you hope it will be. If you chose us, great! If not, we still wish you much joy and success as you move forward. Please give us a call so we can begin helping you make your wedding the Rustic Colorado Adventure you hope it will be.

More about the Lodge Accommodations:

Perfectly balanced between the 'necessities' and 'getting away from it all', the 50 acre retreat has spectacular views and abundant wildlife. Both houses are log homes with many custom touches. Wrap around decks allow you to enjoy beautiful Pikes Peak views. Outdoor areas include: large patios with fireplaces, hot tubs, and a tee box. You and your guests can end the day with a cozy fire or a warm soak as you marvel at thousands of bright stars overhead.

As you enter The Lodge you will be greeted with a wall of windows as well as a floor to ceiling stone fireplace in one of the two spectacular great rooms. Unique art and antiques are showcased throughout the home. Whimsical additions include a vintage Pepsi dispenser and a Bally pinball machine in the lower level bar area.

You and your guests can select from 6 spacious bedrooms, 4 of which are master suites. Many of the rooms feature a sleeping nook perfect for parents with children.

Why Toni and Donald Moore chose South Central Colorado:
Tihsreed is a truly magical place. We are sited in the center of the state so you have just a short drive to the best Colorado has to offer and if you choose to stay put, we have plenty of fun for you on site: a golf tee, hiking trails, hot tub, dvds, fireplaces, wildlife and much more.

We are built on the historic Ute Native American vision quest trail. Many of our trees were culturally modified over hundreds of years by the Ute warriors as they made prayers, held ceremonies and completed their vision quests. When you visit, we believe you will agree that our property feels holy.

What makes this lodge unique
Tihsreed Lodge is decorated with fun and whimsical items, all for sale. There are games, collectibles, antiques and tchotchke that you will enjoy viewing. Many guests choose to purchase items to take home as mementos of their Colorado vacation.

We are located at 9000 feet above sea level, so a hike on the property will give you an extra effort work out. There are swings along the path and many deer live on the property. The views of Pikes Peak and the Collegiate Mountains are beautiful.

It is uncommon to find a spot so private, yet with so much space. Large groups can enjoy the time together, yet have room for private time to reflect. There is something magical about being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday and having time to really build relationships.

Our guests leave with a real Colorado experience. They have had wonderful mountain air, water and views. Guest leave with a Rocky Mountain high in their head and their hearts.

1) No smoking in the house, 2) No shoes in the house, and 3) No pets in the house.
We do not allow smoking or pets in The Lodge. Limited outdoor smoking will be overlooked. Please do not drop your smoking debris on the ground – doing so will result in the loss of your Security/Damage deposit. It is the smokers’ responsibility to be aware of county or statewide fire restrictions. The restrictions may limit smoking to vehicles, as all of the TihsreeD buildings are non-smoking.

To keep The Lodge free of gravel during your stay (and protect floors from damage), leave shoes on porch or inside the door. We provide non-slip footies and/or sox for your comfort.

The Lodge is furnished with better linens and bedding. Please do not abuse the bedcovers by using them like sheets. Sheets are easy and inexpensive to wash. Bedcovers require dry cleaning. Sleep on sheets and pillowcases, not on unprotected blankets, bedcovers, shams, or furniture surfaces.

When your stay is over, please place used washable items in the laundry room: used towels, sheets, pillowcases, footies, robes, etc. Please DO NOT remove bedspreads, blankets, mattress covers unless you have stained them. We dry clean these items on a set schedule.

We will absorb the cost of transporting and disposing of your waste if you recycle properly. The large bin outside is for mixed recycle items. Recycle items: plastic containers (NO PLASTIC BAGS), glass, clean paper, clean cardboard, and cans go in this bin. Absolutely NO plastic bags or trash belong in the green recycle bin.

All food scraps and grease go in the covered metal can on the porch. Please avoid using the garbage disposal to protect the septic system. We will remove food scraps frequently to avoid visits from coyotes and bears. Use a plastic bucket or bowl to collect food scraps after meals, then dump the food waste in the larger metal cans as part of clean up.

All trash (plastic liners, plastic bags, used paper products, diapers, etc.) should be placed in a trash bag on the porch for pick up.

Fireplaces are to be used by adults familiar with burning wood. If you need assistance with fireplaces/woodstove ASK US before you begin. Failure to open the flue and filling the house with wood smoke will cause extra cleaning charges. It is the guests’ responsibility to know if there are burn restrictions that would prevent them using the outdoor fireplaces or grills.

The refrigerators are set to a proper temperature. After loading groceries into them, they take about 24 hours to equilibrate. Do not adjust the refrigerator settings. Doing so will risk freezing up the condenser, requiring a service call or cause your produce, eggs, and beverages to freeze, spoiling your food and making a mess in the refrigerator.

To operate showers in three of the bathrooms, pull down on the ring through which the water flows.

On very cold days, propane flows slowly. This may cause the flame to go out on the gas stove. An adult should stay near the stove anytime it is in use. At 9000 feet above sea level, water boils at 190 F. Any food cooked in boiling water will take about twice as long as normal to cook. Items cooked in the oven should cook close to the way you are used to. Our overflow refrigerator is in the mud room on the lower level.

A cleaning kit is located inside the front door in the closet along with a vacuum and broom.

The hot tub is here for your enjoyment. The hot tub for The Lodge is automatically set, please only push the two jet buttons located on the right side of the control panel - pushing buttons quickly in succession will cause the hot tub to go into power save mode requiring a reset. If too many people are in tub at once and the water is displaced, it is the guests’ responsibility to add water to cover the jets. If you feel the tub needs a capful of sanitizer, feel free to add it. In addition, please read the Colorado Hot Tub rules posted outside. In addition, no one under the age of 16 is allowed in the hot tub at any time.
Cancellation Policy
Q: How much is the deposit to reserve a room/the resort, when is it due, and is it refundable?
A: The deposit is 50% of the total fee to book plus a $500 damage deposit. It is due when you want us to block out the dates and guarantee your reservation. Our attractive rental price has created great interest and booking is brisk. It is advisable to confirm your reservation as early as possible. You will get a 100% refund of your deposit for cancellations made 45 days in advance of your stay. Cancellations made less than 45 days before the reservation may result in forfeiting the deposit. The damage deposit will be returned after a final walk-through after your rental.

Koehn Reunion

We had a very enjoyable time with all my husbands family from his father down to the youngest great grandchild, 39 people in all. They came from California, Missouri and Texas. It was great reconnecting with them all and the accommodations worked very well for us. The weather was lovely and the views were awesome! We would recommend this place to others. Thank you for everything!

Tis Perfect!!!

What an amazing vacation spot!! I have utilized VRBO/ Homeaway many times and have yet to be disappointed. However, never have my expectations been so underestimated. Upon arrival we were met with a welcome by the owners. They wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. I have never felt so welcome in someone else's home. They proved invaluable with ideas of places to go and with their knowledge. They truly have everything you will need. The accommodations are outstanding and the views are truly breathtaking. Please take the time to enjoy the hiking trails on the property. Just take along your camera for some wonderful nature shots. This is truly an amazing place to visit. My family will never forgot the beautiful home, the grounds and the new friends we found in the owners!! There simply is not enough good things to say. With 13 people staying in one place (including teenagers) and not one person had even one negative thing to say that is an amazing accomplishment. It's just that kind of place!!

Perfect wedding spot

We will never forget our stay at TihsreeD. It was one of very limited wedding venues we checked out and immediately knew it was what we were looking for - a place for both of our families to gather and spend a weekend with everything on site. All of our guests fully enjoyed their stay and of course, have called it the "best wedding ever." I'm biased but, I agree. We were able to have our dog in our ceremony and on site which greatly eased my worries and made my day. We were allowed the freedom to decorate the barn as we wished and made it our own for the day. We also set up our walkway and arch and hosted a fun reception night in the barn. We wanted to host our wedding in a location that felt like one of our homes - and that's what this felt like! Wishing we could get married every year! (Ok, not really.)

What a fabulous spot! We utilized all parts of the property - hiking trails, hot tub, outdoor fireplace, etc. such fun.

Perfect Stay

This lodge is a beautiful place to go! Quiet, serene with awesome views of Pikes Peak. Toni & Don were most helpful before, during and after our stay. They provided us with lots of useful information before we even left for CO. Any problems we had the lodge were handled right away. All the guys in the family have Jeeps so needless to say a lot of off-roading was done, I think my two sons tried to do every trail there was in the surrounding area. We enjoyed the outdoor fireplace, making s'mores, roasting marshmallows, and enjoying family laughter. We went to so many places while there, Valley of the Gods, the Cliff Dwellings, Old CO Springs, the Cog Railway to Pikes Peak, Cripple Creek museum and train, Seven Falls (which was closed for repairs) and shopping in Manitou Springs. The sunset and sunrises were gorgeous at the lodge, the hot tub was wonderful especially at night looking at the stars. Such an awesome place to sit back, relax, enjoy your family playing games, etc. and making a life time of memories. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to get away from it all and enjoy nature at it's best. God's creations! The family of Frank & Louise Koone, ST. Ann, MO

Great Mountain Estate

This home has a great mountain lodge feel. It was very well equipped and owners were available if needed, but did not see them otherwise. We had the mountain to ourselves. The outdoor fireplace was a big hit. We had three families in the main lodge -- each essentially had their own floor for privacy when desired, but then we met in the huge living area or outdoor patio when we wanted to get together. There is no cell or internet at the lodge (which I thoroughly enjoyed), but some may not. Great place to play games and talk to each other, do a puzzle or read a book. As remote as it is, you are only about 20 minutes from Safeway, Walmart etc and all you could ever need. I highly recommend TishreeD Lodge and will be back next time we are in CO.

Stayed September, 2016


We had an amazing wedding and party for our guests at Tihsreed! Everyone was able to stay and was totally comfortable in one of the many beautiful rooms they had available. We had a few too many guests that weren't able to stay on the property, so Toni and Don took care of renting the Cowboy Cove up the street for them which worked out great! All our family and friends are still talking about how our wedding was the best...great venue and service, beautiful place and so relaxing! We'd would recommend getting married or having a family reunion here in a heart beat.

Thanks for everything Toni and Don!

Perfect Dream Wedding

We rented the lodge along with the cabin and reception barn for our small wedding. We had around 35 people in attendance with the majority staying in either the cabin or reception for the extended weekend. It was the perfect spot to host an intimate wedding with so many extras included. We went hiking, saw wildlife, went hot tubbing, and played yard and bored games throughout the weekend. Don and Toni were extremely accommodating and had everything you needed. Although the weather was unpredictable for our May wedding, everyone worked together well to make it work. I loved this place as well as everyone that enjoyed the weekend with us. We hope to go back in five years with the same group of people to relive this perfect weekend. Highly Recommended!

Stayed May, 2016


Our family of 19 just returned from a week at Tihsreed and had the stay of a lifetime. We were treated like family by Toni & Don and they went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful reunion/vacation. We had 3 generations of 4 families so finding plenty to do at the house and in the area was a concern but we quickly realized that we'd hit a home run with Tishreed and with the general area. We know we will be back!

Great place for a large gathering

We had a wonderful family vacation all centered around our stay at the TihsreeD Lodge. The lodge itself is clean, well maintained and uniquely decorated. Toni and Don, the owners, answered questions promptly; were friendly and helpful in our planning and during our stay. We would definitely recommend this property. There were 16 of us, ranging in age from 2 to 71. We had plenty of room for relaxing together, and had spacious rooms to retire to. We all found plenty to do on and off the property. The TihsreeD is located within an easy day-trip to whitewater rafting, horseback riding, mountain climbing, the Great Sand Dunes, amusement parks, train rides, and lots more. We enjoyed walking the trails around the property, seeing deer and other critters, and the magnificent view of Pikes Peak as the sun highlighted it each day.

Stayed June, 2015

Perfect for all of us

What a perfect weekend! The spot is gorgeous, the lodge was huge yet cozy, clean and had everything we could have possibly needed, and Toni and Don were exceptionally helpful from the moment we made the reservation through our weekend stay. We loved it and hope to be back! Thank you!
