The Brockhaus family has been helping individuals like you create spectacular vacation memories in the Colorado Rockies since 1992 and at the Pinewood Home since 2007. We pride ourselves in providing unique accommodations and excellent customer service.
The Pinewood Home, located three miles outside of Buena Vista, Colorado, was bought and completely renovated by Bob and Joyce Brockhaus in 2007. Since early 2008, it has been a vacation rental home that has served as a mountain retreat from hot and sticky summers and a headquarters for many winter ski trips.
Dr. Bob held the Coleman Chair in Entrepreneurship at Saint Louis University for 20 years and has been an invited speaker at over 20 countries.
Dr. Joyce has been the president of the Brockhaus Group which provides consulting services to large family controlled businesses for 20 years.
Since 2008, Bob and Joyce have opened up their home to friends, family and many guests who share their love for beautiful mountain views, great fishing and relaxation that can only be found in the mountains. When you arrive at the Pinewood Home and hear the gentle roar of Cottonwood Creek, see the trout jumping in the private fishing pond and stand in awe of the 14,000+ foot mountains that surround you, you can not help but feel the worries of the day-to-day life melt away.
One of our favorite “rituals” is to have breakfast/coffee out on the deck overlooking the creek and fishing pond in the morning to talk about what everyone wants to do that day. After a fun filled day of activity (fishing, shopping, rafting, skiing, reading, etc) or non-activity (naps and/or sunbathing on the deck) we reconvene for wine and cheese on the balcony to discuss who is cooking dinner or what great local restaurant we are heading off to. Yep…that is our basic routine. You should try it…it is an easy lifestyle to get used to.
