Historic cabin in Black Hawk
While conveniently located less than 3 miles from the casinos and nightlife of Black Hawk, our mountain house provides a very quiet and secluded getaway for couples, friends or families (even the furry kind). In addition, we have another property just a few minutes drive away that also sleeps 6, if you are looking to accommodate a larger group.

There is a large smart tv connected to the WIFI with a variety of accessible apps, including Amazon Prime, Disney, YouTube, Pandora, and Netflix. There is also a 2 car garage to keep your vehicles out of the elements. The kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking/baking needs, with dining to fit 6 comfortably. The downstairs master bedroom has a queen bed and open access to a large bathroom with both a shower and a large soaking bathtub. The upstairs loft has a queen bed, and sits next to the upstairs bedroom perfect for kids or 2 adults who don't want to (or care about) sleeping in the same bed. The upstairs bedroom also has an attached bathroom with shower. All the beds have flannel sheets, fleece blankets and soft quilts to keep you warm during the winter months, and plenty of extra pillows are available. The living/dining room have large vaulted ceilings and with high windows facing the great divide and Mt Evans, as you can see from the pictures. Plus, the couches have horses on them!

In terms of amenities, there are a wide variety to choose from in short driving distance. It's a 7 minute drive down to the casinos at black hawk and central city if you are looking for a more lively evening or upscale dining experience. The entrance to golden gate state park is just a few miles away and contains great hiking options. 20 minutes will get you into Nederland, or about 25 minutes to Eldora for skiing/snowboarding. Two miles away is the rec center which for a small $5 entrance fee gives you access to a couple indoor pools great for swimming laps or playing with kids (water slide!), as well as a variety of exercise equipment. One of our frequent stops is base camp just a mile from the house where we can pick up many of those last minute food items or toiletries that we forgot (including wine, beer and/or booze.)

You must have a 4/all wheel drive vehicle and/or snow tires during the winter months. All nearby roads are plowed by the city and the driveway will be plowed when we get 4+ inches of snow but the incline in the driveway can be difficult for two wheel drive cars or those with older, non-seasonal tires.

We have taken great care to create the kind of place that offers an escape to the mountains without leaving behind the modern conveniences so many are used to and appreciate. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

P.S. Unfortunately no bonfires allowed due to being in a high risk fire area.

Family Getaway
Doug was a terrific host! He was in contact with us both before and after our stay to ensure that we had a good experience. The mountain cabin was perfect for our group of three couples. It was spacious, clean, and had everything that we needed for our visit. The scenery surrounding the cabin is beautiful, and the view from the deck is amazing! We couldn’t have been more pleased with our stay at the Gilpin County log cabin.

5/5 Excellent

Rocky Mountain Cabin Getaway
Beautiful Views, Spacious Log Cabin, Attentive Host, Centrally located to many Rocky Mountain and surrounding attractions, with large variety of day trips available. Loved our stay!

5/5 Excellent

two week getaway to the mountatins
Very nice and well-maintained. All appliances although older work better than my top of the line new appliances.. Carpet is a little old and stained in places and they should consider new bed spreads given the small tears in the current ones. Towels and daily supplies are well stocked. None the less we have stayed in much worse. Some might consider need for air conditioning although there are big fans. We hike most of the day so not an issue for us since it cools off so much in the evening.. Heating system worked perfectly with only one control needed to work for the whole house.. Additional wood burning stove we never needed or used. I suspect it comes in handy on the coldest days of winter.. Owner speaks of need for 4X4 which can be helpful and necessary for snow. Guess it depends on what type of vehicle and how good a driver you are. I found it to be one the best maintained drives ever (for not being paved) that I've stayed at. A friend stopped by with front wheel drive van and had no problems. A large two door garage with lots of space. A great deck and view on the property (lots of friendly chipmunks (one little guy walked right up to my socks and stood on my feet). Owner does appear to be meticulous in keeping up with repairs and maintenance of property. Doug was very friendly and non-intrusive. Can HIGHLY recommend this place and location. The awesome Goldarn State Park is just down or up the road depending on which entrance you use and the park provides for lots of outdoor recreation.. Definitely recommend and would stay there again although we do like going to different places which is why we don't own one.
