History

One of the most fascinating parts of this venue is the rich history behind it. The town of Evergreen was once a hunting ground for the Ute Indians. By 1860, settlers had transformed the land into farmland, homes, and ranches. They developed a lumber trade-based economy. 

In 1993, the million-dollar Evergreen Lake House was erected, showcasing rustic log and stone craftsmanship. It boasted high quality lodgepole logs, which were imported from Montana. Its name was inspired by the local area and has since become the crown jewel of the community. It is famous for outdoor activities year-round including sailing, paddle boarding, fishing, ice hockey, and a variety of festivals.
