The experiential travel brand is set to open six properties by the spring of 2015. The company opened its flagship property, Scarp Ridge Lodge, in November 2011 in the historic mountain town of Crested Butte, Colorado.
Once a 19th century mason’s lodge and dance hall, it’s now a seven-bedroom private lodge serving as the base for abundant adventures such as private cat skiing experiences over 1,000 acres of untouched powder, fly fishing the Taylor River, and world-class mountain biking.
In November 2013, Eleven Experience will expand Scarp Ridge Lodge with the opening of Sopris. With three en-suite rooms with additional room with two full beds and trundle beds, the property also offers a copper hot tub, sauna, and full chef’s kitchen, and can be rented either together with Scarp Ridge Lodge, or separately. All-inclusive rates start at $1,350 per person and include breakfast and lunch, prepared by a private chef, selection of guided adventures such as private cat-skiing, fly fishing, and mountain biking, and additional amenities and activities.
On June 15, 2014, Eleven Experience will open Taylor River Lodge on Colorado’s Taylor River, near Crested Butte. The Rocky Mountain retreat will offer six cabins sleeping two to four guests, as well as two larger homes, one with two bedrooms, and one with three. Meals and refreshments will be enjoyed in the main lodge, which also will have a media room, outdoor dining facilities and a custom-built treehouse. The property also has a Stone Bath Housee with an indoor saltwater pool overlooking the river, steam room, sauna and hot tub, as well as spa facilities. Open seasonally, May through winter, the property will offer guided adventures including fly fishing, river rafting, mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing and hunting. The property is all-inclusive, with the exception of spa services.

Guests of the waterfront property will enjoy guided watersport adventures, including surfing, fishing, and sailing, and land excursions such as hiking and bird watching. The property will have five en-suite rooms and a bunk room.
Fall 2014 will also mark the opening of the first Eleven Experience Urban Retreat. In centralAmsterdam, the property will have five en-suite rooms, a bunk room and amenities that include a private canal barge.

Finally, in April 2015, Deplar Farm in northern Iceland will join the portfolio. Currently being transformed into a luxury lodge, Deplar Farm is set in a remote valley surrounded by 3,000 ft. peaks and offers heli-skiing, Atlantic salmon, brown trout, and Arctic char fishing, sea kayaking, mountain biking, and white water rafting.
