LYONS — Boulder’s A-Lodge, or Adventure Lodge, an outdoor recreation-centric hotel off Boulder Canyon Drive, is opening a second location this summer in Lyons.
The new six-room A-Lodge will be at 338 Main St., the former location of Aspen Leaf Motel. A-Lodge owners Asa Firestone and Kris Klauber purchased that property last year. Boulder County property records show the motel changed hands in October for $736,000.
Longmont Area Chamber of Commerce workers’ compensation safety group program received a group dividend of $308,806 from Colorado’s largest workers’ compensation insurer Pinnacol Assurance. Safety group policyholders who contributed to the overall success of the group during this group year were eligible to receive a portion of the dividend.
Short-term rentals for at least a few of the rooms will likely be available within about a week, Firestone told BizWest.
“Lyons has always been on my radar. I’m a big fan of the Rocky Mountain Folk Festival as well as the mountain biking, exceptional fishing and rock climbing that make Lyons a great adventure town,” Firestone said in a prepared statement. “Lyons is one of the true, authentic small towns still around in Colorado, especially on the Front Range. It just made sense as the location for our next property.”
The Lyons property could eventually include a beer garden and a boutique operated as a partnership with artist Jeremy Collins’ Meridian Line apparel brand.
“There’s so much music and art here,” Firestone said of Lyons. “It’s like the best parts of Boulder without all the tech companies.”
