Picture yourself in a massive log home built in the majestic Black Forest, the highest point east of the Rocky Mountains.


Experience panoramic views with all the beauty of the Rockies, the towering Ponderosa pines, the golden aspens and the fragrant meadows

Located only 10 minutes to "town" and only 15-30 minutes to most of the tourist attractions of the Pikes Peak region, this rustic mountain setting is complete with 20 rolling acres of Ponderosa pines to explore. And if you want to experience mountain living to the fullest extent, we will be more than happy to share our chores with you, from cutting firewood to planting Christmas trees.

Your relaxing day begins with the arrival of a delicious breakfast tray of hot muffins and fresh fruit brought to your door. Enjoy breakfast in bed or on the terrace, whichever you choose. Juices, a coffee maker and a selection of coffees and teas are always available in your room or suite.

We are Bob & Susie Putnam. We designed and built the exterior of our Lodge Log Home in the summer of 1984 and have been painstakingly finishing the interior.

During the summer of 1990, we finished the Bed & Breakfast wing with your comfort and enjoyment in mind.
