Glen-Isle Resort Collection

The Glen-Isle on the Platte River, just 45 miles from Denver, near Bailey, CO, was built in 1901 as a mountain retreat for Colorado vacationers. Members of the same family have owned and operated the Adirondack-inspired lodge and its surrounding rustic cabins for 90 years. Today the site is on the National Register of Historic Places.

In 1923 Arthur and Sarah Baldwin purchased Glen-Isle and nearly thirty years later, in 1952, their granddaughter, Barbara, and her husband, Gordon Tripp, became the owners. Even as children, each had a love of and interest in Native American culture.

After their marriage and throughout their lives, Barbara and Gordon shared their interest as they continued to learn about Native Americans. Their collection began in the late 1950s when they and their children were vacationing in the Four Corners area. From that point forward all future family trips headed east to the Four Corners and included time to enjoy Indian culture while acquiring artifacts. Soon, their collection attracted the attention of guests at the Lodge and the Tripps discovered how much they enjoyed displaying their collection and sharing their enthusiasm for Native American culture with the guests. Thus the collection and the stories became an important part of their lives.

After many years of devoted work, the family has decided to sell their 160 acre facility and to part with the Resort’s Indian collection. "
