Building memories … that is what takes place when you visit the Rock House. Whether you are taking your kids out for a treat or meeting friends, time at the Rock House is an experience you and your kids will remember for a lifetime.
Jeannine, the oldest of four kids, grew up in Palmer Lake. She attended Palmer Lake Elementary School and graduated from Lewis-Palmer High School.
Jeannine began her working life in the kitchen of the Ponderosa Baptist Camp. She went on to be a baker and prep cook at the Woodmoor Country Club and later advanced to be the assistant manager at the Monument Village Inn. Afterward, she managed cafeterias in both Colorado and Utah for Canteen Food Services. All of this experience prepared her for her most important step forward–owning her own restaurant.
The work of finding a location, arranging to finance, and tons of never-ending details began. The historic rock building along Hwy 105 seemed to be the perfect place, however complete renovation would be needed. With the help and support of her family, work began in the Spring of 1999.
On June 5th, 1999 the Rock House Ice Cream & More opened its doors. When children’s ice-creamed-faces smile and parents are visiting, a feeling of satisfaction runs through her veins. Jeannine knows that her dreams have come true and that the ROCK HOUSE once again has a place in Palmer Lake history.
