About Gavin Tullos

Our family of 6 including our German Wire Haired Pointer - love being active; working out, hiking, camping, mountain biking, fishing, 4 wd trips, skiing, snow boarding, snow shoeing, if its active and we probably like to do it.

Gavin Tullos purchased this lodge in 2010

Why Gavin Tullos chose Black Hawk

We spent several years vacationing in the Colorado Mountains. Then a few years saying how cool would it be to have our own place, Then a couple of more finding 'It'. We wanted to be secluded not remote, have running water, be with in a hour and half of a major airport, not too far from city conveniences but not to close either. We wanted to have hiking, fishing, and relaxation all in the same spot. We wanted our place to be 'rustic luxury'. We love our home and we love the great reviews and e-mails we get from others who have shared our place.

What makes this lodge unique

On the water, not close, not near, it is ON the South Boulder Creek. There is a 'Trout Ranch' about a mile up stream that stocks - all those beautiful trout come down to our place. 'Cabin' that is secluded with all the luxuries of a 5 star hotel. Direct TV, Blue Ray DVD, Surround Sound, Hot Tub, Sauna, Full gym on 2.5 acres of Blue Spruce and Aspen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks to you all for opening your beautiful home to us for our vacation. We had a wonderful time with all of the fall colors and even had a dusting of snow one morning. Everything was cozy and welcoming...the wine was the perfect compliment to our dinners. Thank you again. Due to icing on the roads late Friday, we had to leave early but we plan to return in the future for another memorable time.

Excellent stay on South Boulder Creek

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed a girls' weekend getaway to Colorado, which included two nights' stay at this lovely home. The amenities were awesome including decks off of each bedroom, decks to enjoy the water view, a hot tub where we enjoyed our morning coffee (which was stocked when we arrived) while soothing our aching muscles from the hike the day before, and a convenient location in regards to Nederland that allowed us to enjoy all the small mountain town had to offer. We did not get to utilize the sauna or workout room due to our short stay, but those amenities were also on-site. I highly recommend this location and plan to return with my husband for a longer visit in the future.

This was the perfect place for our family. We have two young girls who loved to explore the woods and the water. The cabin was close to everything and very private.

Relaxing Comfort on South Boulder Creek

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying in Gavins cabin, and I'm already looking forward to the fourth!!!! Trout fishing was excellent as usual although I didn't catch the 5-6lb goliath's that I caught last year. The trains at night are sweet music to me along with the sounds of nature. This cabin is so convenient to everything.... It just makes for a wonderful experience. Attempted the hike to Arapaho glacier this trip, time and weather turned us back, but GO DO IT!!!! It is breath taking. Thank you Gavin, Can't wait until next year.

Charming cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was charming. It was a great base for our skiing at Eldora. Great master bath with nice shower and whirlpool tub. Comfortable living room with fireplace and large screen TV. Good kitchen equipped appropriately to cook our meals. We found the high top dining table a little tall for us, but this was minor.

When we had an iisue, Gavin responded appropriately. We were very happy with our rental.
