Across the lawn from the Main Lodge is our two-story country inn, the Lower Lodge. The elegant Lower Lodge was designed by Cikan Architects of Bozeman, MT, and was completed in August 1996. The Lower Lodge was built to replace the Green Lodge, a one story motel that had been moved to Chico from Livingston in 1978 to provide additional accommodations with private bathrooms. The Green Lodge was part of the lodging options at Chico until the fall of 1995.
The Lower Lodge has twelve contemporary rooms and four suites. Furnished in a simple, modern Western style, all the rooms and suites have private bathrooms. Eleven of the rooms have two queen beds, and one has a king canopy bed.
All rooms and suites are non-smoking, have private bathrooms, internet access, coffee pots, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards. Rooms in the Lower Lodge are pet friendly, with the exception of suite 430. Also conveniently located in the center of the Lower Lodge is an executive boardroom which can accommodate up to 24 people for meetings and seminars.
