The Antelope Lodge is a rustic 1950's motor court hotel with an elevation of 4,475 ft. Construction of the iconic motel began in 1949 at the hands of skilled stone masons and local craftsmen. Built in the style of a classic motor court, it featured white stucco cottages with authentic Mexican red clay tile roofs, stone porches, kitchenettes, and a central courtyard.  The name Antelope Lodge still appears on the front porch floor where the stone masons originally inscribed it with local rocks.

We are diligently working to preserve this historic slice of Americana for all who venture on the road less traveled.
