The Beginnings

The adventurous navigated a five and a half mile dirt road to a mountain retreat called Wildwood – now owned and operated by Jerry Geller and Ken Sullivan, who added a pool and Jacuzzi in 1977.   The living was basic:  tent cabins with hotdogs and beans for supper.   But the views were stunning for nature boys yearning to commune with something other than a tequila sunrise down at the Rainbow Cattle Company on Main street.

To skirt zoning rules, Wildwood was termed a “gun club,” but it was more like a sex club, says John Calhoun, a former caretaker.   “Sort of like a bathhouse in the woods.”   Falcon Studios shot several porn movies there in the late 1970s and late 1980s – one filmed in the barn down from Julie Andrews Point.
