Two Bridges Lodge
Vacation Homes, Hostel, and Outdoor Amenity Park
Located just west of downtown Bailey, Colorado, Two Bridges Lodge offers a variety of vacation accommodations on the 40-acre Two Bridges Bailey property. Nestled on the banks of the North Fork of the South Platte River and adjoining the Pike National Forest, Two Bridges Lodge offers rest, relaxation, and recreation convenient to the amenities of downtown Bailey and the vast attractions of South Park and the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
Our lodging options range from luxurious, private homes comfortable for families and couples looking to get away from everything and everyone, to comfortable hostel beds for the adventurers hiking, biking, and playing in our Colorado mountains and looking for a break from the action. The hostel also offers a handful of tent sites along the river for those desiring an outdoor stay. We book our hostel beds and sites directly on this website. Online booking of our vacation homes is available only through vrbo--you can find links to each of the home reservation sites below on this page.
All lodging guests receive complimentary access to The Park at Two Bridges, our two-acre outdoor amenity area with a fishing pond, river walk, games, chiminea, and relaxation galore.
Hostel renovations are complete and the hostel is now open!

If you are hiking the Colorado Trail, cycling the 285 corridor, mountain biking at Buffalo Creek, disc golfing in Bailey, or just roaming the mountains this summer, we invite you to come experience a new and improved hostel at Two Bridges Lodge. You can stay in the bunkhouse on the ground floor of the Lodge building or pitch a tent by the river. Enjoy a hot shower, rest your feet, acclimate to the altitude (we are at 7,740'), and recharge your electronics and your body!
The indoor hostel, with 4 single beds in two separate sleeping areas, includes a light self-serve breakfast, plus a community kitchen and lounge area; shared bathroom/shower; laundry (laundry pod $2); clean, comfortable beds (use your sleeping bag--we supply a fitted sheet, pillow and pillowcase, and a towel); storage lockers in the office; wi-fi and electrical recharge stations; and access to The Park at Two Bridges, with a pond, picnic area, games, and other outdoor amenities and relaxation areas.
The outdoor hostel provides your own private campsite; a picnic table and parking spot; access to the porta-pottie and shower under the trees; plus full access to The Park at Two Bridges. Campers may also access a laundry facility for $5 per load (including a laundry pod)
We are within walking distance of several restaurants, a brewery, a winery, the post office, and a laundromat. There is also a resupply store in town (Platte River Outfitters) and a small grocery with fresh produce and meat next door to it (Rosalie's Market).

Two Bridges Lodge offers two private, single-family homes located south of the river on beautiful wooded acreage. Each offers a distinctive vacation opportunity and design. We book these homes exclusively through vrbo (the buttons below will take you directly to that property's vrbo booking site).
The River House at Morning Air Ranch: Our original vacation lodging, the River House was remodeled and opened in late 2018 in an idyllic setting just feet off the river. With a hot tub on the deck overlooking the river, a spa-like master bathroom, and plenty of room to roam, the River House is the perfect choice for those looking to play all day and relax at night.
4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms.
Maximum occupancy: 7 guests.
Jack's Place: Jack's Place is currently undergoing a full interior refresh and will soon be available for bookings. Interior photos will be posted once work is complete and the vrbo site is up and running, but there are a few "sneak preview" exterior shots below. This Craftsman-inspired bungalow is our most private property. Truly "over the river and through the woods," it sits on a forested bench above a riverside meadow dominated by towering pine and cottonwood trees. The house is tucked right next to the Pike National Forest. If you have ever wanted to vacation in your own private cabin in the woods, but still have easy access to the amenities of a quaint Colorado mountain town and the recreational opportunities abounding in our area, this is your place! Jack's Place includes a new family-style kitchen, a comfortable dining and living room with a big screen TV to stream your favorite movies, WiFi, new flooring and paint throughout, laundry room, and an awesome steam room and hot tub for relaxation after a hard day's adventure.

About Two Bridges Lodge
Formerly known as Lynwood Park, Two Bridges Lodge is the latest incarnation of this family-owned, family-run riverside lodging in Bailey, Colorado. Located on the banks of the North Fork of the South Platte River, with its own relaxing (and private to guests) fishing pond and picnic/play area, adjacent to US Highway 285, walking distance to downtown Bailey's restaurants and attractions, and close to the Colorado Trail, this heavily forested 2-acre riverfront playground is part of the 40-acre Two Bridges Bailey property abutting Pike National Forest. We are located only 45 minutes from Denver, 30 minutes from Red Rocks, and right in the middle of the fabulous Colorado Rocky Mountains at nearly 7,800 feet elevation.
Our lodging offerings currently include two private and exclusive single-family homes located south of the river on acreage and the hostel in the main lodge building.
Why Two Bridges? Because the west end of our property is the concrete bridge over the river at Old Stagecoach Road and the east end is near the wooden bridge that leads to the River House. In between is a half-mile of river and 40 acres of private vacation wonderland waiting for you to come visit!
