Harriman House

My trusting and faithful concierge Triscuit, awaits patiently on the terazzo front steps for guests.

The concept of a lodge came from my annual childhood vacations to a lodge and cabin property along the Peak to Peak highway outside of Estes Park, Colorado. It's a large, log lodge with a lobby and dining area on the first floor with guest rooms above.

Items of worth (unfortunately not seen) are a stained glass back door with a small balcony in the rear and a wood shed along the opposite end, filled with tootsie roll logs to feed a seasonal fire.

An acquaintance of mine passed away a few years ago. We talked about baking and specifically ideas for gingerbread houses. His last name was Harriman and I included him with Initializing the Necco and chocolate pebble chimney.

I am a former pastry chef but this is the first gingerbread project I have attempted in the many years of letting my mental creation come to fruition.

Your Lodge and My Trees
by: Jana Keeler

Hi Richard: Your lodge is quite impressive and I love the look of logs with the pretzels and the porch and balcony.

You also asked how I did my trees (Swiss Chalet). They are sugar ice cream cones that I coated with leaves using a leaf decorating tip and green-colored royal icing. For the smaller tree I just chipped off some of the bottom of one of the cones. That's it.

Best I've ever seen. Puts BH&G to shame!

I think it's an adorable and cozy lodge nestled in the beautiful Rocky Mountains! I can just imagine myself sipping hot chocolate and all cozy on a bear skin rug in front of the roaring fire! I think your mental creativity has totally come to fruition!

I would stay here!

Love all the details on this lodge.
Very colorful and inviting.
Wish I could see the "stained glass" windows.
Tell Triscuit "hello" for me.
