Wing Shadow Ranch estled on the shores of 320-acre Gurley Lake near Norwood, Colorado, is Wing Shadow Ranch. Our lodge offers 6000 square feet of western luxury to individuals, families, or groups. Five comfortable guest rooms are available, or the entire lodge can be reserved for family reunions or group retreats.

The beauty of the area, at the base of the rugged San Juan mountains, is legendary. Four-season activities are virtually limitless ... as is the hospitality you'll enjoy once you arrive.

Your time here is precious. And it is your own. We are happy to design a vacation to fit your individual wishes and schedule ... doing as much or as little as you like.

You'll return home with fond memories. With new friends.

And with a new joy for life.

Which is more impressive over our lake ... sunrise or sunset?
