Pine Valley Ranch Park, located in Pine, Colorado, less than an hour away from Denver on Highway 285, offers a wide variety of beautiful, accessible recreation year-round for visitors. Bought by Jefferson County Open Space in 1987, the park includes the historic Baehrden Lodge, which was built by a Chicago business tycoon as a summer house in 1927 and now offers free tours to the public.
Baehrden Lodge William A. Baehr, president of Chicago’s North Continent Utilities Company, vacationed in Colorado in 1925. He fell in love with the Pine Valley area and had a summer home built there. Baehrden Lodge was built by a crew of 60, working around the clock for 90 days. Construction finished in 1927, at a cost of $1.5 million. After Baehr's death, the ranch was sold in 1956. It was used as a private vacation and fishing retreat until 1975, when it was sold and became as a conference center and family resort for about 11 years. Jefferson County Open Space purchased Pine Valley Ranch in February 1986.
