The Gingerbread Cottage


The Gingerbread Cottage in Bailey, CO
…your answer to the perfect scrapbooking retreat or mountain getaway!

Tucked away in the hills above Bailey, Colorado lies a mountain retreat.  A cozy getaway ideal for groups and families. The main house offers traditional log cabin charm and main living areas. The workshop (multipurpose room) is located on the second story of the detached garage and has been set up as a multi-purpose room and crafting workshop complete with 8 workstations. The Gingerbread Cottage is just 30 miles from Denver’s C470 via Hwy 285.

The cottage is available for private rental any day of the week. Periodically throughout the year, we offer hosted retreat weekends where individuals can enjoy the amenities of the cottage.

If you haven’t done so already, we highly recommend joining our mailing list. This way you’ll stay connected with everything being offered at the cottage. We typically send out a monthly newsletter and an occasional e-mail in between with some opportunities that might come up.
