Naming rights

The High Lonesome name came about due to the lodge sitting high up on a hillside overlooking the Ranch. It is also a tribute to early bluegrass music as well as Native American lore, both of which are a rich part of the Ranchs history.


The High Lonesome Lodges exterior matches the dark brown color of the existing main lodge, with reclaimed rock covering the foundation and chimneys. Large windows are designed to allow for as much natural light as well as views for guests, and locally made iron railings and native landscaping keep a low carbon footprint and pay tribute to the Ranchs history, often referred to as “parkitecture.”
