The Ritz Carlton Club Bachelor Gulch, Colorado | "The largest Log Structure in North America"
Architect: HKS | Interior Design: Wilson and Associates | Timbers & Timberwrights Three Mile Creek Post and Beam
In the early 1900s – the era of Theodore Roosevelt and the emerging American West – famed architect Robert Reamer designed The Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park. The Inn soon became the model for lodges in western North America and eventually inspired the ‘parkitecture’ of spectacular hotels such as The Ritz Carlton, Bachelor Gulch.
Built with indigenous hewn-timber and stone, The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch captures the essence of the surrounding national forest. With notched and joined massive timber, forged ironwork and stonework, dormer windows, broad sweeping gables, and log balconies.
Until the mid-1930s, grand, historic lodges proliferated in the pioneering West, eventually inspiring the construction of The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch – the first resort to be built in authentic parkitecture style in over 50 years. (The Ritz Carlton)
