VACATION RENTAL SUMMARY - "Hummingbird Nest"
This private, mountain retreat is only four miles from the Central City/Black Hawk gaming casinos, 30 miles from Denver's endless attractions, 22 miles from Eldora's quiet skiing slopes, and only a few steps from trout fishing on North Clear Creek. Bordering Arapaho National Forest on two sides of the property, fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, and ATV/four-wheeling opportunities abound.

Gold panning can be experienced on the stream right outside the door, with lessons available just down the road. White-water rafting and mountain rock climbing can also be enjoyed nearby. Gilpin County's new recreation center, just a few miles away, has an Olympic-size pool, indoor track, basketball court, weight room, and numerous family activities.

The abundant Denver area attractions vary with the seasons from Rockies Baseball to Broncos Football, Elitch's Six Flags Amusement Park, numerous museums, and the restaurants and shopping are always fantastic!

We had a wonderful time at this cabin. The river access was fantastic and the cabin was awesome with all the comforts of home and more. There are numerous activities for young and old within minutes. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a mountain getaway. Thanks so very much!!!
Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed staying at the Hummingbird Nest. We found the red food coloring, made the birds some sugar water, and enjoyed watching them for hours. The place was just right, not too big and fancy but very comfortable with a wonderful location. I was looking for some much needed R and R and it really fit the bill, under the pine trees and next to the water. I loved it! We would really like to find something like it for our own retreat someday. You guys are so lucky to have it. We also took your suggestion and went into Central City/ Blackhawk to watch the fireworks on the 4th of July. They were fantastic!
Thanks again for a wonderful place to stay. We'll keep you in mind the next time we're looking for a retreat in the mountains.
This place is great. I recently stayed there and highly recommend it for a place to get away and relax and enjoy nature. It is very quiet and yet not too far from civilization so that you feel isolated. It was wonderful and I hope to return again some day.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Hummingbird Nest!! Its very cozy and well appointed, and the mountain stream flowing by within a few feet of the cabin adds so much to the "relaxation factor". The location is great - close to Denver, Blackhawk, hiking/biking trails at Golden Gate State Park, Golden, etc., and yet has a secluded "feel". If you are looking for a great place to unwind and relax, you found it!
We had the pleasure of spending a week in Hummingbird Nest for the occasion of our son's graduation from Denver University. With 4 grown children and 2 spouses in various parts of the country, it was a great place to gather and celebrate as a family! We hunted and found 3 geo-cache's in the near vicinity with spectacular views in each place.
The Kuders called us twice while we were there, to make sure we had everything we needed, which made us feel like family! We'd love to go back some day! Thanks Deanna!
