Welcome to the Lost Wonder Hut
The hut is a historic cabin with modern amenities and offers a comfortable, cozy home base from which to hike, bike, ski, snowshoe, or just relax in the beautiful Middle Fork Valley of the South Arkansas River in Colorado’s southern Sawatch Range. Your next backcountry adventure begins here. We offer incredible multi-season opportunities to explore some of Colorado’s most breathtaking scenery from the comfort and safety of a rustic mountain lodge.
Female Owned Business
Lost Wonder Hut has been a family-owned business for over a decade, starting with a husband-and-wife team, Bobby and Natalie Lewis, and is now a mom-and-daughter operation. When the Lewis family first became the owners of the hut, Bobby ran operations at the hut while Natalie ran the office side of things. Jess was just in high school when they first bought it and participated
in running the hut with occasional winter cleaning and wood chopping in the summer. In the last few years, Bobby has passed his side of the business to Jess, but you’re likely to still see him up the valley where the hut sits, out skiing with his dog Rio, or scrambling up the peaks. Bobby put a lot of love and hard work into making the hut what it is today and Jess can only aspire to treat it with the same level of love and dedication. It is a legacy she feels honored to be a part of.
These days, you’re likely to catch Jess on the trail and on the other end of the business line but both Jess and Natalie both live to be outside. Some of their collective adventures include: walking the CDT in 2006 when Jess was just a teenager, paddling the inside passage, traversing Antarctica, walking the PNT, climbing and guiding in all 7 continents, thousands of miles of whitewater navigated, and much much more. Owning the hut together has been an incredible journey to undertake and they are both grateful to have such a fantastic business partner.
