The Gingerbread House... Caldera Spa. One-of-a-Kind in the World... Romantic 1930’s Austrian Cottage completely Restored, with every modern luxury imaginable. Discover the Ornate wood carvings throughout this home created by John Henry Montgomery.
My name is Rick Dyer. I will be your Host when you come and stay at this very special place known as 'The Gingerbread House'...
Experience the Enchantment of The Gingerbread House... The beautiful Ornate wood carvings you will discover throughout this home were created by John Henry Montgomery. Henry spent the final 20 years of his life making this house into a home by creating the detailed woodwork and ornate carvings on display both inside and outside The Gingerbread House.
Mr. Montgomery loved working with wood. We are told: Each day John created wonderful details, ornate corbels and detailed carvings using his small wood-shop located a short distance from the house. The 1934 Gingerbread house was his life. John painstakingly carved, salvaged and recycled all the wood and detail used in this beautiful Austrian style home. The ornate nearly ten foot (10') Wolf-Dragon found outside the guest bedroom was his final creation for the Gingerbread house before he died. It was designed to be a bird feeder.
THE GINGERBREAD HOUSE... Enjoy clean mountain air, forests teaming with wildlife. Where Deer, Hawks, Blue Jays, Woodpeckers, Red Foxes, Silver Foxes, Bobcats, Hummingbirds, Polts and Wild Turkeys, may be seen nearby or on the property. Gentle snowfall in winter months. Brilliant fall colors, cool spring temperatures, summer warmth, and cold mountain spring water! Close to everything in southern California, yet quiet and distant from the noise and traffic jams of the city. Crisp, clear night skies display millions of stars and shooting stars, a family get-away that's great for the kids; or a quiet, secluded romantic honeymoon hide-away... THE GINGERBREAD HOUSE.
