We enjoy Colorado history, attractions and natural beauty of Colorado Rocky Mountains. Our family loves outdoor activities such as whitewater raftings, skiing, trails, fishing..

Julia purchased this cottage in 2008

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.

Our Victorian Retreat is a walking distance to historic district of Central City and only 1 mi to Black Hawk. Walk to Gilpin County Historic Museum, Thomas House-Museum, antique shops, restaurants, casinos...

Only 9 mi to hot springs and whitewater rafting on Clear Creek; a great rec center in Black Hawk..

Our Lovely Stay

  • Submitted: Nov 5, 2012

Dear Julia,

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...

Hello Julia,

Thank you so much for the quick accommodations for me and my group. We loved the house. The view over the city was beautiful and we were blessed with good weather so we enjoyed our time on the patio. We will definitely be coming back around the summer and to stay for longer term or for a romantic getaway! Thank you again and I look forward to speaking with you again in a few months.

Thank you!

Old West Flavor With a Feminine Twist

I can't rave enough about the helpfulness of the manager, Julia. She is friendly, professional and very accommodating. The cottage is high on a hill overlooking the historic Central City and it brings you back in time to when things were so much simpler. The cottage is immaculate and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and the living area much nicer than any hotel around. I wish we could have stayed longer. The photos were accurate and the cottage was very inviting and well maintained. I would recommend this for one or two couples.

Recommended for:Age 55+, adventure seekers, sightseeing, girls getaway, romantic getaway.

Julia, we loved your 2 places, one so different from the other and both a home away from home. Wonderful time. Thanks again for allowing us to stay. The Central City home was very special and I would travel across the country again just to use that bathtub. We had a good time, and thank your husband for the travel advice. We enjoyed the Opera House in Central City - full of history!
