About the property

2 Bedrooms, Loft, 2.5 Bath, Log Cabin With Mountain Views

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 (sorry no cable or satellite) connected to the wifi with a variety of accessible apps, including 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.

Why Doug Moede chose Front Range Colorado

We instantly fell in love with this property, primarily because of the log structure and the high windows facing the Great Divide. We weren't even looking to buy at the time we saw it but simply couldn't resist. Since we have another property only a few minutes away, we've already come to know and love the area, how secluded it feels while still being in such close proximity to both downtown Blackhawk as well as some of the other businesses of Gilpin County.

We made a good choice

  • 5 of 5

Really great spacious cabin with a beautiful view from the deck. Everything is clean and feels new, and the owners have clearly gone out of their way to make sure you have everything you need during your stay, from firewood to coffee filters to laundry detergent. We arrived on 4th of July, and Doug even texted me to let us know the best place to go to view the fireworks! Wifi is available, as well as Netflix on the TV, and some board games, though I was happy just watching the chipmunks running around on the deck. Our only regret was that we hadn't booked a longer stay.

Quiet Cabin in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin with our children. The cabin was clean and the beds were comfortable. Great communication from the owner leading up to our stay and checking to make sure all was okay. It was so relaxing. The kids enjoyed nature watching during the day and watching movies at night. We had dinner on the back deck one night. Hummingbirds are everywhere, don't forget your feeder. So close to Golden Gate Canyon State Park. We enjoyed hiking there. Highly recommend this one. No complaints!

Great place for a getaway in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a getaway in the mountains. Doug was very responsive and everything was as expected and hoped for. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio with a mountain view over the horizon

Awesome retreat !!

  • 5 of 5

We visited in February 2017....the cabin is in immaculate condition, and very tastefully decorated. Well stocked kitchen with regard to utensils and appliances, comfy beds and a great living area for family time. Already booked our return visit ! Oh... And the owners are very accommodating and responsive. We rent cabins quite regularly and this one is just outstanding.
