Privately held Natural Retreats, headquartered in Charlottesville, Virginia, is building upon previous acquisitions of the South Fork Lodge on the Snake River in Idaho, and the Homestead Preserve in Hot Springs, Virginia. Across all Natural Retreats properties, guests gain access to spectacular landscapes with top local Outfitting guides whose mission is creating once-in-a-lifetime outdoor adventures. Above all, the company prioritizes exceptional personal service for guests and accommodations as unique and inspiring as their surroundings.
“Natural Retreats is proud to be entrusted with these three iconic destinations,” said Matt Spence, CEO of Natural Retreats. “Our team envisions its role as guide to life’s most amazing experiences. It is our good fortune to now include a breathtaking ski-in ski-out lodge on the mountain at Taos, the true ‘bucket list’ heli-fishing destination of Tsania Lodge in Valdez, Alaksa, and the undeniable tranquility and tradition of the Greystone Inn on Lake Toxaway, North Carolina to our portfolio.”
Wilderness Lodge and Bavarian Chalets – Taos, New Mexico
The Wilderness Lodge in Taos sits atop Kachina Peak at 10,500 feet, making this the highest accommodation in the state of New Mexico. This stunning private lodge offers stylish mountain luxury with four fully furnished suites that can all be rented individually or as a whole. The Lodge includes 4 private bedrooms with balconies, 5 bathrooms, and a giant bunk room for kids. Built in 2004 from 150 year old reclaimed timber, the Wilderness Lodge sits right above Taos Ski Valley Resort and in very close proximity to both Lift 4 and the Bavarian Restaurant and Bar.
Super romantic and perfect for a couples’ getaway, Natural Retreats’ Bavarian Chalet virtually provide visitors with a home away from home. The chalet has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a fireplace, and a fully equipped kitchen.
Tsania Lodge – Valdez, Alaska
Alaska’s Tsaina Lodge defines seclusion. Located in beautiful wilderness 40 miles east of Valdez in the Thompson Pass, Tsaina Lodge offers heli-access to some of the most remote places in the world. Natural Retreats operates the lodge for summer and early fall adventures between June 1 and October 15. Guests can experience Alaska with no limits, from heli-fishing rivers few have seen and kayaking among enormous icebergs to hiking trails that are traveled more by wildlife than humans.
Greystone Inn – Lake Toxaway, North Carolina
The Greystone Inn lies tucked away on the shores of Lake Toxaway, nestled under North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains. Awarded the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award for 27 consecutive years, the Greystone Inn has welcomed couples and families for restorative getaways since 1903. Blending charm with activities and amenities geared to take advantage of its pristine setting, guests enjoy a range of outdoor activities from guided fly fishing and rock climbing to extensive opportunities for hiking, biking, golf, and champagne cruises across North Carolina’s largest private lake.
