It began with a simple dream for our family. We wanted some land out in the country where our kids could roam around. But as we toured properties, we began dreaming of something bigger than ourselves. A venue that would bring people together under the big skies of the Flint Hills.
Our jaws dropped the first time we saw the land of Blue Vista, and we are still filled with awe every day. Birds swoop over the glistening lake. White tailed deer leap between cedar trees on rolling hills. Golden-pink sunrises and sunsets take our breath away.
Blue Vista is a lakefront venue and retreat that supports thriving families and communities by providing an inspirational setting for all people to connect with nature and each other.
The design goal of Blue Vista was to make giant buildings as unobtrusive as possible. The color of the Cedar Pavilion blends in with the lake and sky. Big, expansive cathedral windows maintain a connection with nature and provide a feeling of being outside while in.
Rustic touches tie the buildings in with a sense of place. Local craftsmen repurposed materials we discovered during excavation. The limestone fireplace was hand-chiseled from hyper-local stones. Its mantle was shaped from 4x12 beams from an old barn, complete with square wood pegs that held them together for more than 100 years. Wood slab countertops were hewn from an old oak tree from our ravine.
