Welcome to San Isabel, Colorado!



We are excited you are considering coming to enjoy our mountains at over 8,500’ in elevation.  The less traveled Colorado Frontier Highway 165 offers beautiful scenery and recreation year-round.  San Isabel is just 25 minutes northwest of I-25 at Colorado City.  There is so much history in the area (Check out our About page to learn more) and loads of outdoor fun for the whole family.  Fishing, paddle boarding, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, dirt-biking, atv-ing, natural water slides,…are just some of the great options for outdoor recreation.  There are also several attractions in the area like Bishop’s Castle and The Great Sand Dunes National Monument.

We have lodging options for everyone!  We offer 20 fully-furnished rustic cabin rentals at The Pine Lodge and The Lodge that are easy load-up-the-car-and-go stays.  Click on Lodging Options to see which cabin rental options are available!

Rye Colorado - Local Attractions Bishop Castle

Bishop Castle

See Jim Bishop's creation!  His one-man built castle is described as "elaborate and intricate". Located in the Colorado wilderness, it is a popular sight to see.  Free tours available!

No more than 10 minutes from Lake Isabel, Bishop Castle is open 365 days a year, sun-up to sun-down. This great attraction is free, but donations are appreciated to keep it running!

Great Sand Dunes National Park

Colorado's Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve has the tallest sand dunes in North America and cover about 30 square miles.  While they are not the closest attraction to San Isabel, experiencing this park is worth while if you are from out of town! About a 2-2.5 hour drive from us, we also recommend stopping at Zapata Falls on your way.
