Shared Spaces & Fun
Pool and Hot Tub
Relax and refresh in the heated pool and hot tub - a perfect spot to escape the hot sun in the summer, or enjoy the winter desert night sky from the hot tub. The pool area includes comfortable lounge furniture, seasonal flowers, and charming lighting.
Walking River Trail System
You might go for a walk or bicycle ride along our system of trails that wind through native foliage and wildlife habitat on the banks of the San Juan River. Thanks to Jim Hook's efforts to restore and maintain the natural riparian habitat for species of birds, insects, and other wildlife, the river trails are a perfect place to exercise and enjoy nature.
Outside Family Space
Recapture Lodge has always been a family-owned and operated business. Our complimentary facilities include a playground, fire-pit and picnic tables, propane and charcoal grills, as well as several horse corrals with a water hydrant. All are available for your use.
Recapture Lodge rents several fully equipped Bluff homes, including the beautifully restored Joseph Frederick Adams House, and the West Place on the Bluff River Ranch for groups and families. Extended stay rentals are also available.Learn More
