Amazing cabin!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience! We were looking for a cabin outside of Denver, and close enough to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. Look no further! The cabin has amazing lake and mountain views, and even has very strong wifi, which was essential for my partial work trip. Morning walks around the neighborhood and nighttime star gazing (milky way was visible and outstanding) were phenomenal! The homeowner provided everything we could have wished for, Including tons of pamphlets for local attractions, very clean accommodations, and tons of available towels, linens, and cookware. Can't wait to visit again! Thanks for making our stay such an amazing experience!!!

Owner's Response: So glad our place worked so well for your partial work trip, and you found our wifi signal strong. We upgraded our equipment last year to improve the signal throughout our place. We too love stargazing and delighted to hear you enjoyed it. We look forward to your staying at our place again!

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Kristine's place was the perfect get away. It was secluded to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The house is only one hour away from activities. With that in mind, we were able to go zip lining near Denver, mountain bike riding in Nederland, a bike ride from Friscoe to Breckenridge, and a concert at Red Rocks. After each activity we were able to go enjoy our stay at Kristine's comfy lake hide away. Her house has everything you need. We were lucky enough to meet her neighbor and learn a little about the wildlife in the area. Unfortunately we weren't up early enough or home before sunset. Overall we loved the home. Thank you Kristine.

Breath taking Scenery, Owner Very Accomadating

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We loved eating breakfast on the sun drenched deck, looking down at the peaceful lake below the cabin. Kristine was very flexible with us when we originally thought we wanted to extend our stay by one day. Because of a late concert at Red Rocks we decided to stay in Boulder. It was NO problem to change our stay. Thank You!!! We found pleny of non casino activities too. Would definately recommend.

Exactly what I was looking for. A getaway that was quiet and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I can't give a 5 is that it is a little out dated inside. Clean and nice.

Beautiful views in Blackhawk, Co!

  • 5 of 5

Kristine was super accommodating and her cabin was the perfect place to spend our first night in Colorado unwinding. The cabin had everything we needed. We woke up early to watch the sun rise over the mountain while drinking our Saturday morning coffee. We didn't get to see any deer or moose but we spent the morning with the chipmunks, hummingbirds, and woodpeckers! Overall it was the perfect short stay. Thanks again. Next time we're back I'll be sure to check if it's available!

Centrally located to everything! Less than 1 hour from Denver, Boulder and Rocky Mountain National Park. Just 1 mile from the north entrance of Golden Gate Canyon State Park. 4 miles to Gilpin County Rec Center with indoor pool, water slide, work out facilities and classes. Travel 10 miles south to historic Black Hawk and Central City for some western history, food, fun and gambling. 10 miles to the north, Nederland has some good restaurants with live music several nights a week, shopping and several art and music festivals in the summer.
