Wasatch Mountain Lodge

The Wasatch Mountain Lodge was built by the Wasatch Mountain Club in 1929 as a way for it's club members to have a resource they could use to fully enjoy the beauty of the Cottonwood Canyons. It has since, been given back to the people as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to maintain the lodge, so current and future generations can also enjoy the solitude of this rustic lodge.  The Lodge is  listed on the National Register of Historic Places and all of the proceeds from rentals and donations go directly to maintaining and preserving the Lodge as it was intended when it was built 85 years ago.  

The Wasatch Mountain Lodge is a great place to host family reunions, weddings, ski trips, business meetings, and more. Whether you are planning a larger event, or are looking for a simple getaway to create lasting memories for your own family, the Lodge is the perfect mountain escape.
