​​​​​​a Colorado holiday alternative

Where are we?  

Ordway  is the epicenter of Crowley County, located in Southeast Colorado.

The area has many features providing unique character in the present, and robust heritage from the past: historic Native American occupation, early settling constructions ( lakes and canal), bird life and ranching lifestyles that continue today.

About us : 

The consortium venture began in late 2015 after it became apparent that individual efforts wouldn't make a significant impact for Crowley County. Several members of the community recognized that we could do more with combined effort. We adopted the following mantra of what we had that was unique, special and of possible interest to outsiders:

do what you can, with what you have, where you are Theodore Roosevelt
