Rabbit Ears Motel Vintage Photo Print
Steamboat Springs, Colorado

The Rabbit Ears Motel and its bright pink bunny has been a landmark in Steamboat Springs since they were first built in the late ’70s. “I can’t believe that the city would attack the Rabbit Ears,” says Garfinkel. “It’s such an amazing piece of art.” Owner Ron Koehler agreed, and he responded by spending years in court, until he was finally vindicated in the early ’80s when the sign was grandfathered in. In 2003, Koehler won the war-the sign was placed on the Rout County Historic Register. In the lobby they still continue an old fashion way of checking their guests in, very welcoming kind local folks at the desk always knowing what’s happening around town. This is such an amazing little motel in a nice location right across the street for the hot springs and most of the rooms have cute little balconies to sit and watch the river. Also the motel is in walking distance from restaurants and shopping along the main strip of town. A lot of mom & pop shops from consignment to high end furs and really nice shoe stores. The cafes are to die for with homemade cinnamon rolls and local beef and mouthwatering eggs benedict with outside seating and organic pizza joints with balcony seating and live music…gotta love it everything is high up in the mountains.

Again, photographer Martin Garfinkel captured another historical landmark which is well known in Colorado due to all the ski resorts. This image is very popular with the girls and the trendy pink bunny, so we designed this image in a sterling silver pendent usually in an 18” chain which has become a winter fashion. But you can also purchase this image printed & framed or printed on metal, on a jewelry box, on a tote bag or even on a throw pillow to add that little bit of artsy Colorado to your home or business.
