Natural fibers surround you from the impressive rock fireplace, to the rough-hewn wood furniture. Granite countertops, leather sofas and cotton bedding round out the natural atmosphere. High windows, soaring ceilings and French doors allow you to appreciate the rugged mountain beauty, even when you have to be indoors.

  • Corporate Retreat

    Creativity is the New Corporate Capital

    One of the key principles of unlocking your creative mind is breaking away from the ordinary, the corporate approach and the daily hustle and bustle of city living. An artistic and innovative experience awaits you here. It belongs to you and we want to help you find it.  Although you will plan your corporate retreat, you will be surrounded and inspired by Erik Wahl’s signature art collection. The home highlights his artistic journey, from his early work when he first picked up a paintbrush to his latest and most personal work, using wood stain and natural canvases.

    All the amenities you would hope to find in a signature hotel experience are available to you here as part of a corporate retreat package. You can customize your experience by including anything from daily housekeeping to private boarding lessons, or a chef that comes to the door. Your colleagues and employees will be released from the daily grind and given a chance to rejuvenate their bodies and spirits, freeing their minds for innovation.

    Erik Wahl’s exclusive private mountain retreat is a perfect venue for small groups to combine work, play and inspiration. Contact Tasha Moffitt today to discuss our noteworthy Corporate Retreat Packages.

    Brainstorming Materials

    Although Erik does not personally lead corporate retreats at this time, you can pre-order his I Am Artist book and CD series for your team. We have designed a curriculum to facilitate using this program in small groups to bring about the most forward-thinking responses for your company. There are no stuffy meeting rooms here, just sun-filled lofts, and spacious living areas that allow typical business meetings to become conversations.

    "I wanted to reach out to personally thank you for the memories my family was able to make in Big Bear in February. The house was perfect for us. In fact, they loved it more than the De La Hoya property. We look forward to the opportunity to make more memories there.

    I will be in touch with you to make arrangements for next year. I received nothing but great reviews on how well taken care of your proerty was and the responsiveness of the staff. The art was magnificent!"

    "Thank you so much for your generosity in sharing your family home with us. We had an awesome time in your cabin in Big Bear. We did every run at Snow Summit, including our first Black Diamonds and Double Black Diamonds.

    We loved the jacuzzi and all the wonderful accomodations and all the art work!"
