The Mariposa Lodge was built in 1992 as a bed and breakfast. Local beetle kill pine beams and wood work was used throughout, to create the a unique southwestern themed lodge. The lodge sits in a beautiful quiet residential area on the edge of old town Steamboat Springs, along the banks of Soda Creek. The Lodge is within walking distance to Downtown Steamboat, and a short drive to Strawberry Park Hot Springs.
In 2006 The lodge was purchased by Bob and Cindy. Bob and Cindy moved to Steamboat in 1974, and were partners in life, building many businesses together to include Steamboat's Mariposa Lodge. In April 2012 Cindy passed away from cancer. Cindy's touch remains at the heart of the Mariposa's surroundings. Her beautiful quilts, love of books and little white pitcher collection still grace the lodge. Your Mariposa hosts strive to honor her memory by providing our guests with the same warm and welcoming ambiance that Cindy did to ensure that you will want to return. Bob continues to play an active role in the lodge. His home is adjacent to the lodge, and is know to come over for coffee in the mornings and to visit with the guests.

Growing up, her family hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners year after year so she is fond of cooking for large groups of people and loves the conversations that take place over a good cup of coffee. Beth is the significant other of, the owners, Bob and Cindy’s son Hunter. They have been residents of Steamboat for 5 years. Together they love to camp, backpack and all around explore the beauty Colorado has to offer. Beth is passionate about cooking + baking and can often be found in the kitchen unwinding while baking a fresh loaf of bread or throwing together dinner with ingredients picked straight from their garden.
