We had a Blast.

My two best friends and I spend a week at Brian’s beautiful cabin. We all needed guys get away from wives, work and the grind of the everyday race. At check-in time we met Brian’s parents who were very helpful and really nice people. We hiked, had campfires every morning and evening, grilled out and ate like kings. It was a very relaxing week that we spent outdoors 98% of the time. The weather was perfect. The temperatures were 42 to 72 at the cabin while Denver was 82 to 92. Played golf twice and shot my best ever. We enjoyed gambling at the Casinos in Blackhawk and won. We did not get to do any fishing which was on our agenda – just too busy being outside and hanging out. We did not have any problems at the cabin and only a couple of comments about our stay. There is no cell phone service at the cabin. So you either go up the mountain road or down to Blackhawk - if you need that (I didn’t and was glad to be away from all the calls/e-mails). There is a land line to use at the cabin. The cabin is well stocked with the essentials. We bought and brought too many things like spices, condiments, oil, paper plates and towels, shampoo and conditioner, soap, etc. (all of which was not needed). That is not a bad thing but would have helped our meal planning some were we aware. Also some of the Casinos offer coupons with their Players Card so we took advantage of free breakfasts, lunches and a dinner or two. My only negative was the DirecTV was locked out of certain channels which were an annoyance at worst. The code to unlock should be provided. As old Boy Scouts we left the cabin in better shape than when we arrived. BTW the cabin is in excellent shape. Perfect for one couple and kids or two couples. I’m sure the cabin is spectacular in the Winter.
