THE ULTIMATE CABIN EXPERIENCE!

Black Hawk Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Solid Log Cabin on 1-Acre Property (3BR/1BA)

**Update Sept 2013: FYI the flooding everyone saw on the news was 2 hours away from the cabin - it had zero affect on the cabin thank goodness!** You are looking at one of the best-kept secrets in Colorado! Just 5 miles from Blackhawk and Central City. It is a must to read my guest book below and hear all the amazing things previous guests have said about their stay.

Solid Log Cabin with all the amenities:

- Surrounded by National Forest, VERY Private and quiet (you could walk around naked all day and nobody would ever know!)

- Gushing Mountain Stream next to Cabin - great for your morning coffee or evening happy hour!

- 20-foot tall vaulted ceilings

- Fully Remodeled Kitchen and Bath in 2013

- 1-acre of land and No neighbors.

- Free Wifi & Internet Access!

- Awesome indoor/outdoor sound system!

- Camfire Ring, Tree Hammock, & Patio Next to Stream! Gold Panning is also on-site!

- On property elaborate treasure hunt!

- A secret 1/2 mile long trail beginning behind the cabin for cabin guests only to enjoy!

- Beautiful Master Loft overlooking entire Cabin! Plus one extra bedroom, and a kids treehouse loft bedroom. The treehouse loft is mostly meant for kids, but its a cool place to hang out in too. Includes a twin bed, and Directv & DVD player.

- Property is located about 1 hour from Denver and it is very easy to get to.

4-wheelers can be rented and delivered to the cabin for approx. $100/day if desired. Information is also at the cabin for local dining, casinos, guided fishing tours, grocery stores, hiking and jeep trails, etc. You can 4-wheel/ATV right off the property and into endless amounts of trails leading all the way to the Continental Divide, Winter Park, St. Mary's Glacier, and everywhere in between. The house sits in a beautiful valley surrounded by thick national forest. I also provide a Topographical Map of the area around the cabin showing all of the Jeep and Hiking Trails available, right in the cabin's backyard! Golden Gate National Park is also only 15 minutes away. Plus...your own private 1/2 mile long hiking trail right outside the front door.

As long as there isn't snow on the ground, a fantastic elaborate Treasure Hunt exists on the property awaits you...and I encourage all ages to do it. Its not easy, and kids will need help from their parents to figure out the clues, but its a TON of fun. I spent over a month and $500 in materials putting it together...you'll love it! And if you figure it out...there will be a buried treasure chest for you to find at the end...

Roads are plowed and maintained by the City of Blackhawk all the way to the cabin. 2-wheel drive accessible year round. Complimentary Hot Chocolate, Spiced Cider and Coffee are provided. Kitchen condiments, Firewood, Wood Stove Pellets are also provided. Easy check-in. A 4-digit access code will give you access for the length of your stay.

I purchased the property in 2002. It was never listed publicly... a friend was selling it. I had NO idea what I was going to do with it...I just knew it was so special I couldn't let it go or I would always regret it :-)

Brian Richards purchased this cabin in 2002

This place was like a childhood dream come true for me. Everything about it...is...perfect. I wouldn't change a thing. My wife is a real estate agent, and she's been looking in the mountains for years for another property like it for us to buy in addition, and we just can't find anything like this one. Its so special in that it has the river, ultimate privacy, the true 'log' home feel, big open feel, no neighbors, the private hiking trail, surrounded by national forest, etc. Its not hard to find most of those...but getting all of them in 1 property without spending $1M is not easy.

This Cabin is a labor of love for me and my family. We constantly upgrade it without hesitation. Because we use it so much ourselves...its so worth it spending $ to make it better. I've had families that have stayed here every year for the last 7 years, and its really fun upgrading it for them too so there is always something new to enjoy :)

Fourth of July just wouldn't be the same if we didn't spend it at this perfect spot in Black Hawk. We've been there for the past five years during the first week of July and already have it booked for next year. When we walk in the door we smile at each other and say, We're home! We both enjoyed the new hammock this year and the patio by the creek is our favorite spot for drinking coffee in the morning and a cocktail in the evening. We love the privacy of the cabin and the fact that it's so close to Black Hawk and the fun of the casino. If you're lucky enough to visit this little bit of heaven, you'll understand why we can't wait to return!

What a wonderful place to stay!!

This was our first time to attempt something like this and I must say that we could not have been happier. The experience with HomeAway and with Brian was just brilliant. Brian answered all our inquiries and concerns quickly and very clearly. The business side of this transaction could not have been smoother.

As for the cabin, just "wow" is the the only thing to say. This property offers everything the description says and so much more. It is located in one of the most beautiful places and was everything we hoped for. Brian and his family have done an amazing job of creating a mountain hideaway that is to die for. We arrived to find a fire in the pellet stove, all the lights on and everything waiting for us. We spent an amazing Thanksgiving weekend there an hope to do it again.

The cabin is so well equipped that you can arrive there with only your clothes and victuals and need nothing else. We cooked an incredible Thanksgiving meal in the wonderful kitchen, enjoyed the outdoor fire pit and watched our fill of football on the satellite tv system. The cabin is not huge, but with 5 people we never felt crowded. The use of space is incredible.

If you are looking for a wonderful place for a winter getaway or a supreme warm weather mountain experience, this cabin can do it for you. We so hope to be able to go here again when we can take advantage of the trails and the rushing brookside area. But another winter outing is not out of the question.

Kudos to the owners for making a property like this available for the rest of us to share. A 100% top rating for the cabin by the creek!!!!

My husband and two young daughters wanted to find a weekend getaway near our home in Denver, and Brian's cabin was a wonderful find. We had a great time! It's obvious Brian and his family have put a lot of work and love into the place. We expecially liked the little touches, like the stamped floors, painted mice, rope lighting etc. Our 5 YO loved the treasure hunt and the "Cub's Den" (we almost couldn't get her to come out). The cabin is small, but makes very good use of space and is well stocked with the necessities. We have lots of exploring to do in other parts of Colorado, but when we want a place nearby, we will definately be back!

My husband and I wanted to get married in the winter, in a cabin. This was the perfect get away for small wedding. It snowed almost everyday we were there and it was absolutely beautiful. The pictures and descriptions were spot on. We are not gamblers but still enjoyed the quiet relaxing time. We are hoping to make it back next year maybe during the summer months. We met some great people and enjoyed ourselves. Thank you Brian

My boyfriend and I rent a lot of cabins all over Colorado. This cabin was by far the cleanest and cutest cabin we have ever stayed in! It has so many cute little details! We had all these plans around the area, but never really wanted to leave! It was such a great place to relax and found the fireplaces so cozy and romantic! We will definately stay there again!
