Breath taking Scenery, Owner Very Accomadating

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We loved eating breakfast on the sun drenched deck, looking down at the peaceful lake below the cabin. Kristine was very flexible with us when we originally thought we wanted to extend our stay by one day. Because of a late concert at Red Rocks we decided to stay in Boulder. It was NO problem to change our stay. Thank You!!! We found pleny of non casino activities too. Would definately recommend.

Exactly what I was looking for. A getaway that was quiet and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I can't give a 5 is that it is a little out dated inside. Clean and nice.

Beautiful views in Blackhawk, Co!

  • 5 of 5

Kristine was super accommodating and her cabin was the perfect place to spend our first night in Colorado unwinding. The cabin had everything we needed. We woke up early to watch the sun rise over the mountain while drinking our Saturday morning coffee. We didn't get to see any deer or moose but we spent the morning with the chipmunks, hummingbirds, and woodpeckers! Overall it was the perfect short stay. Thanks again. Next time we're back I'll be sure to check if it's available!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! The kids loved it, and so did we. We walked around the lake many times--even at night. Saw several shooting stars, as there was very little light pollution out that far. So peaceful. Close to hiking trails and great little restaurants down the road. Hope to stay there again soon!

Property clean and well kept. Owner very responsive to both phone call and text msg inquiries once we arrived. Has all the comforts of home. TV system in living room area was missing the remote to the Roku box - However, you can download a Roku app for your cell phone which then controls this box (owner has since informed that the remote was found)... This property has three distinct and separate living quarters of which this rental unit lies in the center portion of the building. The property owner states that they do NOT schedule occupants in either of the units that flank this rental when this center unit is being rented. This property sits on the north side of a small lake. Excellent, relaxing views from the back patio. No issues with hot water for taking showers and water pressure was great throughout the unit. Quiet, peaceful setting as the property sits back off the dirt road about 50-60 yards. Beds were quite comfortable (on the soft side). Washer and Dryer units worked well for the couple of loads we did. Kitchen is stocked with everything you would need - pots, pans, utensils, and ample supply of various spices and seasonings. Coffee maker had plenty of filters and there was ground coffee there from past guests. Air conditioning worked good as we needed it during our stay as temps got into the mid 80s. Three bedrooms with separate beds. However, two of the bedrooms are not totally separated as the wall between the bedrooms does not go all the way to the ceiling. This is due to the fact that there are two bunkbed style beds that are on a "shelf" that runs between the two bedrooms. Climb a little ladder to get into the bunkbeds, but be advised that there is NOT a lot of headroom in the bunkbeds. This half-wall set-up between the two bedrooms does allow for noise travel between the rooms - so don't plan on total privacy if in one of these bedrooms. The other main bedroom is totally separate, and actually quite large (I'm guessing it to be like 16'x22') and has a nice view out over the lake. During our stay there weren't any other people in the units on either side of us - we had the whole property to ourselves. I would gladly go back here in a heartbeat!

Centrally located to everything! Less than 1 hour from Denver, Boulder and Rocky Mountain National Park. Just 1 mile from the north entrance of Golden Gate Canyon State Park. 4 miles to Gilpin County Rec Center with indoor pool, water slide, work out facilities and classes. Travel 10 miles south to historic Black Hawk and Central City for some western history, food, fun and gambling. 10 miles to the north, Nederland has some good restaurants with live music several nights a week, shopping and several art and music festivals in the summer. Many find it hard to leave the house, it is a perfect place to just relax and get away from everyday stress, traffic and recharge while enjoying the beautiful lake and mountain views.
