Why Julia chose Black Hawk
We have been always interested in Colorado Gold Rush history. This house is an absolutely unique property that was built some time before 1864. We discovered old 1864 photographs in Denver Public Library where our house is depicted.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Choosing your sweet Victorian Cottage was such a smart decision on my part. It was a beautiful weather and we had a beautiful place to stay. Your cottage is just like I pictured in my mind. My great grand mother lived in one in Butte, Montana where I grew up. I loved the little place, of course it wasn't painted as brightly, or decorated as beautifully as yours...
