Captain Drake's flight lodge is a beautiful place to stay whether you are staying a night or for several weeks while engaged in your flight training. We are an adventure vacation destination flight school providing instruction for sport pilots and ultralight airmen. We also offer rooms for $60/ night to non-flying folks who just want to stay in a unique and special spot. We're not exactly a hotel and we're not quite a bed and breakfast (you wouldn't want me to cook for you) but we do have a great kitchen and you are welcome to use it!

My spouse and I live in Missouri, but I ran across Captain Drake's Family Aerial Adventures during my search and kept returning after doing an extensive search.

This place offers introductory flight for a very reasonable price. Wolf has two planes you can choose to take a ride. They also have a lodge that has a great view of the valley. Their Air BnB house sits on top of the hill and overlooking the mountains which is very cool especially in the morning and dusk. Good food,... More

This was one of the best BnB experiences I've ever had. Not only were the hosts flexible, accommodating, warm/welcoming, and gracious, but they also allowed us to book last minute! We arrived in the late evening and were greeted in the morning to one of the most beautiful views of mountains and a hot breakfast! They are knowledgable about the... More
