The History of Precipice

Once known as the historic Bears Den Lodge in the 1960s, Precipice Private Lodge has a rich heritage with its foundation and grounds carved out of the bedrock of Blackrock Mountain. The lodge stood as a sanctuary in the midst of nature, holding memories and stories within its walls. Years later, in the 1990s, our founder went on a leadership retreat here inspiring an intimate connection with the space. Decades later, the lodge has undergone a transformative evolution, returning full circle to its roots as a retreat center. By embracing its historical significance, our vision is to preserve the lodge’s heritage while creating a haven that epitomizes luxury and comfort within the depths of nature. The distinctive rock structure at the heart of our lodge symbolizes the Precipice Triangle of Water, Wellness & Wander, serving as a guiding principle for our rejuvenating ethos.
