Overview

Front Range Colorado Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 11

Our cabin is conveniently located just off the Peak to Peak Highway, Route 119, midway between the fun, gambling town of Black Hawk and the town of Nederland, gateway to the Indian Peaks wilderness, in the quiet mountain neighborhood of Meadowlake Mountain Acres. Located on almost two acres, Aspen Meadows has a geological rock formation at the rear of the property, where, after an easy hike up the pathway, you are treated to an almost 360 degree view of the surrounding mountain peaks, including the Continental Divide.

Cabin Features: Aspen Meadows' open floor plan is bright and cheery with large windows and easy communication between the living room, dining room and kitchen. A den/sunroom off the living room is another gathering place and can be closed off to serve as an additional bedroom with the comfy sofa that folds out to a full-size bed for one or two extra guests. A wood burning fireplace in the living room and a wood stove in the dining room will keep your family warm and cozy, (wood is provided). The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to whip up delicious meals, including staples and spices. (Nederland's B&F Supermarket is minutes away for convenient stocking up.)

The master bedroom has a comfy queen-size bed, an en-suite bathroom and french doors which open onto a private deck. The second bedroom also has a queen size bed and the kids' bedroom is equipped with a bunk bed and two twin beds. There is a folding twin bed stored in the kids' room closet for extra bedding.

More Good Stuff: In addition, there is a full bathroom near the kitchen and a washer and dryer for your use. On the main deck in the front of the cabin, there is a gas grill, along with plenty of seating, and the crisp, delicious mountain air abounds! Our cabin has a flat screen TV, a DVD/VHS player, an extensive movie library, an IPod dock, an additional TV with a built in DVD/VHS player and plenty of books and board games to enjoy while on vacation. Kick back, relax and enjoy the peace!

Pets are welcome at Aspen Meadows with an additional fee and security deposit. Although the streets leading up to the easily accessed and flat driveway of the cabin are quickly plowed after snowfall by the county, 4WD is still recommended throughout the Winter.

So Many Things to Do!: The property is one mile from the entrance of Golden Gate Canyon State Park and within easy driving distance to fabulous hiking, biking, fishing, sight-seeing, skiing, gambling in the mining town of Black Hawk, and so much more. Vacationers are within walking distance to the Gilpin County Library with free computers and internet access, and three miles down the highway is the first class Gilpin Community Center. Our Center offers an indoor track, lap & activity pools, basketball & volleyball courts, dance & fitness studio, cardio equipment, weight room, hiking trail, art studio, teen room with pool, ping pong and air hockey tables, meeting rooms, lounge, free WI-FI, seasonal events and more, all available to visitors for a small fee!

Perfect cabin for family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the cabin for a family gathering to celebrate my youngest daughter turning 30. The cabin was perfect for us. It allowed us to be together in a beautiful setting, lots of room, and still have private sleeping arrangements. Viveca was very helpful with directions to the cabin and letting me know about different restaurants and near by towns. If I had a question, she was quick to respond. The cabin was well stock, plenty of towels and linens and definitely plenty of dishes! All of my children were extremely impressed with the cabin and its surroundings - they loved it! It was an easy drive to Black Hawk & Idaho Springs from the cabin, which was where we were spending most of our time. I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to get away for a while.

Great time !

Had a great time . Plenty of room for everyone . The kitchen was well stocked , had all the spices , cookware that you could possibly need . Grill on the front was great for cooking out and watching the wildlife . The climb to the top of the hill was well worth it , awesome views !! If in the area again we will be back . Thanks for the great stay !

Very accomadating.

  • 5 of 5

Loved that the cabin was clean and well stocked with some of the staples that you don't think about. Lots of spices and condiments made eating in a cinch. Easy to get to and beautiful hill in the back which when we climbed it had the most amazing mountain view.

Overall this was perfect for the eight of us and made for a beautiful mountain retreat.

great stay

  • 5 of 5

nice, quite location, beautiful hill in the back yard to climb that gives you sight above the trees to all the peaks, very cozy. Get the feeling you're back a few years with the wood burning stove and VHS movies (there are DVDs too but when did you last watch a good classic on VHS???) complete set up, just like any normal house would have. Will definitely be back soon!
