About Mount Lemmon Lodge

The Mount Lemmon Lodge is a brand-new lodge opening this summer! It is a 16-suite lodge, with a Beyond Bread Cafe, and Gift Shop! Here is a little history on the making of the Mount Lemmon Lodge. 

A dream realized, 100 years in the making.

My great grandfather found his way to this sky island in the early 1900s. Eugene Childs formed a partnership and developed Summerhaven. He began our family’s generational love and care for Mount Lemmon.

There has been a lodge in Summerhaven since the earliest days, a refuge for desert dwellers. The lodges offered an old-world atmosphere and created magic mountain memories. Due to wildfires, there has been no lodge in Summerhaven for nearly 20 years!

With the Mount Lemmon Lodge, Summerhaven will have cohesiveness once again with a new heartbeat. In honor of our local architectural history, the Lodge echoes Alpine Chalet influence. Guest rooms are simple and rustic, yet elegant. Food is fresh and local with fast service. Gifts exceed expectations in style and quality at all price points without competing with our neighboring businesses.

We are excited for you to join this dream team!
