The architectural theme at Bachelor Gulch Village® is, in many ways, inspired by the classic designs of the grand lodges throughout our country's national parks such as Yosemite, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon and Glacier. Built nearly 100 years ago, structures such as The Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park were designed to exist in
harmony with their spectacular surroundings. Bachelor Gulch has successfully become a resort community in harmony with nature, from home designs to skier bridges. Capturing the essence of the surrounding mountain forest, design aspects include forged iron, dry stacked rock, dormer windows, log balconies, massive timers, and welcoming, covered porches. Incorporating the following three sources, the Bachelor Gulch Village architecture extends a distinctive American tradition:
ADIRONDACK - an enhanced, yet manicured sense of living in the woods.
ARTS AND CRAFTS MOVEMENT - drawing on centuries of craftsman handwork traditions developed over many cultures.
NATURALISTIC - used in the landscaping and streetscaping designs, where manicured lawns are minimized, and flower beds are populated with native wildflowers.
