About Alpine Lodge
The Alpine Lodge At Red Feather lakes is owned by the Salido family. We believe in God, family, and our country. We are proud of our beautiful state and feel privileged to live in Colorado. Neftali (Papa Salido) would often take his wife (Mama Salido) and 3 kids (Joab, America and Krystal) camping, fishing and hunting. All 3 kids grew up with a love for the outdoors and a deep appreciation for all the beauty that nature has to offer. There was no second guessing that a business in Colorado’s glorious mountains was perfect for the Salido family. The Alpine Lodge At Red Feather Lakes officially opened its doors in February of 2019.

Red Feather Lakes Area
Red Feathers Lake is an unincorporated community 45 miles west of Fort Collins.The area was first settled by loggers and ranchers around 1900, and some deserted homesteads are still strewn throughout the mountain landscape. The community’s name is derived from a popular Native American concert singer’s name, Princess Tsianina Redfeather, who studied in Denver and was known to some of the early residents. Small grocery stores, a trading post and nearby restaurants provide visitors with all of the comforts of a fine vacation, a romantic getaway or a full week of outdoor fun for the entire family.
The immediate vicinity holds bear, antelope, moose, mule deer, mountain lions, elk, bighorn sheep, marmots, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks and a variety of migratory birds, shorebirds and waterfowl. In wintertime, residents and visitors come for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice-fishing.
