Be honest. Haven’t we all dreamed about living on a big spread with emerald fields, babbling trout stream and soaring white-capped mountains? Add a log cabin - a nice one, of course, and life couldn’t get any better. Or could it? How about six log buildings and a barn that houses an executive center?
Grizzly Creek Ranch started out as Kinkos' founder Paul Orfalea’s family getaway destination. With Paul’s firm belief in “maintaining a constant dialogue with co-workers to ensure everyone understands each other's goals, objectives, and performance on an ongoing basis”, In time he began to see how this ranch would be a wonderful environment for convening groups of executives to encourage communication and inspiring creative thinking in a fresh air, relaxing location away from the interruptions inherent in the average company boardroom. With that vision in mind he designed the high tech barn-style executive center and the ranch became Grizzly Creek Ranch and Retreat.
With the expanded facilities and lots of money, you can convene with just your family and extended family to hike, fish and spend quality time together, or convene with your company executives for training or brainstorming in the midst of one of the most exquisite natural environments you’re likely to find anywhere. What’s your pleasure: Trout fishing in an icy stream? White water rafting? Or maybe you like hiking or exploring Yellowstone or soaking in hot springs or just sitting in a rocking chair on the porch watching the prolific wildlife and indulging in daydreams. Whether you’re hyperactive or a lounge lizard, Grizzly Creek has what you need to charge your pioneering spirit.
On the northern edge of Yellowstone National Park on 1,967 deeded acres, the outcropping of buildings blends into the surrounding meadows the same as would a smattering of boulders. Structures total six log and wood buildings and . . . two large tepees! From a well-disguised, well-equipped executive center easily mistaken for a lodge, to a quaint log cabin or tepee away from the others, options for living, working, playing and conversing are almost endless.
