Easy Being Green

A Solar Flair & A knack for living gently

Before “Green” was in, or the way to be, we were doing our part to preserve our world and the natural environment. The Savage River Lodge is based on nature and encouraging our guests to interact with the natural world in a responsible way. From the initial building to our continued operation, being green is our way of life.

Bridge to the Lodge

The bridge crossing the headwaters of the Savage River is a recycled military bridge destined to go to Bosnia that we purchased three years before it was installed. Prior to that and the construction of the road it took approximately 45 minutes to travel back to the Lodge!

Here are many of the ways we Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Repurpose: Coming up: In-line hot water heaters will soon replace conventional “heat the water all the time” heaters in every cabin. We are always eager for new ideas and so we always keep our “green” policy in development. If you have any ideas or would like more information on any of the projects we work with, just email us.
