About the property

2 bedroom cabin with high-end finishes. Forested stream and mountain setting.

The Moon Creek Cabin is a wonderful place to escape the summer heat, enjoy the winter snow and get away from it all. Listen to the babbling brook in the backyard. Relax and rejuvenate in the our comfortable mountain cabin with a gourmet kitchen (granite countertops, new stainless appliances, gas range/oven), custom beetle-kill window trim and hardwood and decorative tile floors. We also have a wood-burning stove that is perfect to warm up to after a long day of skiing or snow-shoeing. In summer, step outside and breathe in the fresh mountain air, listen to the babbling brook while enjoying all the mountain wildflowers and hummingbirds. Also watch for moose, elk, deer, fox, coyote and variety of beautiful songbirds. The Moon Creek Cabin is literally at the end of the road. There is nothing above you but nature for miles and miles. No need to drive from the cabin, just step outside and start hiking up Moon Gulch. The peacefulness and tranquility of this cabin is unparalleled. Guests will have the entire home and property to themselves. We also provide 2 pairs of adult snowshoes and poles for your use. NOTE: 4wd or Awd REQUIRED in "winter" (generally mid-October to end of April). Please confirm you have 4wd or Awd for all booking requests during this time.

For the nature lover, there is world-class hiking, cross-country skiing, hiking, biking, back country alpine touring, snow-shoeing, climbing and fishing right out the front door. Or take a very short drive to the James Peak and Indian Peaks Wilderness Areas and experience beautiful alpine lakes, native wildflower meadows and magical subalpine forest. If you like to ride your ATV or dirt-bike, then the Moon Creek Cabin offers a unique jumping off point to explore the old mining roads of Upper Moon Gulch and the historic mining town of Apex. Ride right from the cabin!

If you prefer a scenic drive, the Peak to Peak Highway is only two miles away and you can take a 10 minute drive to the funky town of Nederland with numerous good restaurants and unique gift shops. Or drive 45 minutes north, and visit Estes Park which is the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. To the south are the towns of Black Hawk and Central City, known for casinos and the Central City Opera. The progressive town of Boulder is only a 40 minute drive to the east where you can visit the famous Peal Street Mall and the hand-painted Dushanbe Tea House. Finally, we are only 75 minutes from Denver International Airport.

Jeff and Rea Wrobel purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Jeff and Rea Wrobel chose Black Hawk

We purchased this property in January 2014 and completely remodeled it with high-end custom finishes. We fell in love with the cabin's location (at the end of a road) and the privacy it offers as well as the small stream in the backyard.

What makes this cabin unique

Moon Creek Cabin is very private, yet only a short drive to nearby towns Rollinsville and Nederland and the big city of Denver. You will be surrounded by nature and have access to great hiking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling or ATVing right from the doorstep. There is a small perennial stream in the backyard. We are also a short drive from Eldora Ski Resort. The cabin is very secluded and there are no neighbors. If you are looking for privacy in a beautiful forested mountain setting, this is the place!

Awesome Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We actually live in these beautiful mountains!! We had quite a few relatives come for our daughter's graduation and didn't have enough room in our home to host everyone. So we rented this awesome place for a couple of the grandparents. This home is simply perfect! It was super clean, set up so well, and fit our needs perfectly! We would give it more than 5 stars if that was possible. If you are looking to stay in the area, this is the top choice without a doubt!!!

We were looking for a place to get away and this cabin was just it! We will definitely be back! The first night we were there it decided to snow 18 inches in May so we didn't get out due to the roads. We definitely needed more time!

Enchanting mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

Who would know that such a magical escape is atop a mountain just minutes from Nederland? We loved it from the minute we arrived ... the cook's kitchen, the wood stove with the exquisite stonework, the windows opening on mountain views, the deck overlooking the creek ... Moon Creek Cabin is a haven -- we and our pets were so at home here. Thank you for everything -- we'll be back! We only hope we can get a reservation after telling everyone we know about this wonderful place!

Awesome cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was super clean and had everything we needed for our ski trip. Close enough to Eldora but secluded enough to feel like you were the only people around. Great experience, would definitely stay here again!
