TihsreeD (Tiz-reed) Lodge, Lose the crowds - find yourselves.
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.

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.

Toni and Don always dreamed of entering the lodging business and in 2010 decided to go for it. They have had a wonderful time sharing TihsreeD (Tiz-reed) and meeting lovely people from all over the world. They enjoy helping their guests plan a Colorado adventure. Their goal is to ensure that your time at TihsreeD is memorable and that you will want to return.

Toni is a chemist, teacher, and artist. She enjoys making the Lodge look special and is always available to assist you with your stay.

Don is financial services consultant and the general handy man for the Lodge.

Both Toni and Don are marathon runners, skiers, and cyclists. They stay fit tending to the 50 private acres that make up TihsreeD. Fire mitigation, tending to the trails, and landscaping at 9000 ft. above sea level is quite a workout. Their goal is to make all of TihsreeD a park like setting in the mountains.

Toni and Don Moore purchased The Lodge in 2006, and added The Cabin in 2015.

Why Toni and Don Moore chose South Central Colorado

TihsreeD (Tiz-reed) 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.

TihsreeD is 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 our venue unique

TihsreeD (Tiz-reed) is decorated with fun and whimsical items, many for sale. There are games, collectibles, antiques and tchotchke that you will enjoy. Many guests choose to purchase items to take home as mementos of their Colorado vacation.

The venue is 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, turkey, foxes, and more 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 to rest and reflect. There is something magical about being away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and having time to really build relationships. Our guests leave with a real Colorado experience: wonderful mountain air, water and views. Guests go home with a Rocky Mountain high in their head and their hearts.

Call us at 719-839-0860 or email us at To contact guests in The Lodge, call 719-748-1143. To call guests in The Cabin, call 719-748-6025.
