Science Is The Foundation

A big part of the experience at TheBluHouse is science! Our 5 pillars of nutrition, sleep, movement, mind, and support are distilled from a shelf full of modern scientific reading that you’ll have access to. Not only that, but we do fun experiments that show you how these pillars impact your day to day life.

Great Food is Nutritious!

We’re not talking about a diet or fad. At TheBluHouse, you’ll see how nutrition has a direct benefit you and your family’s overall health and well-being. Eating more nutritious food is a journey, and we meet you where you’re at. Our access to healthy local food will help you eat great while you’re here and take home knowledge that lasts.

We Love To Have Fun

TheBluHouse is square in the center of the best Colorado has to offer. In the spring, summer, and fall, you can mountain bike and hike right out of the garage. You’ll also have access to numerous river events, concerts, world class fly fishing, and the town of Eagle. In the winter, bring your skis! We’ll be spending our days at Beaver Creek enjoying some of the best skiing terrain in the country. No matter the season, TheBluHouse is situated in the perfect location to support one of our 5 pillars: Movement.

Where you will stay.
