About the Property

Casita Colorado- 3bdrm+loft sleeps 6-10 Reclaimed and custom mountain retreat!

Come enjoy the amazing views of the continental divide and Indian Peaks Wilderness in this one of a kind home! Located just 7 miles from the town of Nederland, 15 minutes from Eldora mountain Resort, 1 hr from Denver, and 35 minutes to Boulder, the house makes you feel like you are way off the beaten path, yet still accessible to so many great restaurants a small towns. The Casita is more than just a vacation rental, it's a piece of art! Carefully crafted with almost all reclaimed materials, this house will truly make you feel at home. There are Breathtaking views of Arapahoe peaks, jetted tub, hot tub, outdoor steel fire pit, gas grill, shower in the master with views of the divide and hammocks!!. The house was initially designed to be a vacation rental and it has a personality unlike any other. It is certainly a one of a kind home! Casa Colorado is also 420 friendly! Feel free to inquire about details.
The Casita is a newer construction that we have been building since 2012. The house is primarily made up of reclaimed materials with the exception of some of the framing lumber. All of the windows, doors, flooring, cabinets, counters, granite, flagstone, outdoor kitchen, and even all of the appliances came from other resources. We take pride in making luxury out of re-used building materials!
After building our bed and breakfast, Casa Colorado over the last ten years and using reclaimed materials, we thought it would be fun to build another house that could be a vacation rental and would act as an example of a reclaimed design and build project, start to finish. After discovering Resource in Boulder and a few other used building suppliers, I was able to stockpile all of the house parts before we started building. I designed this house by using the pieces that I found, but also prioritizing the artistic integrity, functionality, and overall class of the home.
The house sleeps up to 10 people, but is probably the most comfortable with 6-8. There is a king in the master bedroom, as well as a queen futon, there are two single beds in the loft, and a queen in the downstairs bedroom. We have added a 3rd bedroom in a seperate tiny house behind the outdoor kitchen. There are also 4 blow up mattresses and two pack n’ plays for kids.
The Casita Kitchen is built with an open floor plan and features a stained torquoise concrete slab with in floor radiant heat, a beautiful Viking range with a center griddle and a stainless dishwasher and refrigerator. There is also a professional grade blender, coffee maker, French press, 4 slice stainless toaster, and a soda stream for making your own bubbly water. There are professional grade copper pots and pans, as well as stainless for your cooking pleasure. There is a crockpot and a Champion juicer, as well. The kitchen is fully stocked with a full line of savory herbs and spices and a few varieties of sea salts and also fresh organic herbs growing for your convenience (during the grow season).
The lighting in the Casita is really amazing. There are remote controlled full spectrum leds, moroccon sconces up the stairwell, deep blue pendants over the island, and rail and cable lighting throughout the house. Every light in the house has a dimmer. The ability to create a really cool feeling in this house is one of its signature characteristics!
The living room is very quaint and has an 8 ft. cozy designer couch, as well as two comfy chairs. There is a pellet stove that does a great job of heating the space and provides a really warm atmosphere during the winter months. There is also in floor radiant heat in the kitchen and the two bathrooms and radiant wall mount heat in the rest of the house.
There are flatscreen tvs with direct tv in each bedroom and a 55 inch in the living room. There is a Harmon Kardon surround sound stereo system in the living room and speakers throughout the entire house for your listening pleasure. The stereo also has a tablet that you can stream spotify or Pandora or use it to get online. There is also wifi throughout the house.
Design: There are many amazing artistic features to this house. We used custom, handmade tile in the downstairs shower that almost feel ocean like, and tie together the torquoise theme throughout the house. There is a deep blue vessel sink that compliments the tile and sits upon a late 1800's sink basin. There are glass tiles, raku tiles, custom textures, reclaimed 1800’s beams and an ornate Balian architectural piece in the kitchen that truly brings an old world feel to the kitchen. The house feels open and airy and has high, vaulted ceilings.
Hot tub: The hot tub is located right out the back door for easy access and is always set to 104-106 for your comfort. There are two glass enclosed showers, but they are NOT steam showers. They do, however , get pretty warm inside as they are both fairly small enclosures.

Skiiing/ Sledding: The house is located about 15 minutes from Eldora Mountain Resort. Eldora offers plenty of downhill terrain as well as a great Nordic Center with miles of Nordic trails to choose from. Sledding can happen right from the house! The location is perfect for sledding right out the front door! The hill is just right out of the front door. Sleds and snow shoes are provided. The house also backs up to National forest, so it feels very private and really there are 100’s of acres of forest right behind the house. We continue to work on the trail system so that hiking and cross country skiing can happen right from the house.
Hiking: During the summer months there are amazing hikes all within a 15-minute drive. We supply the house with trail maps for your convenience.
Closest town: The nearest town is the town of Nederland. It is located just about 7 miles away from the Casita and has an assortment of restaurants, cafes, bike shops, grocery store, co-op, liquor stores and is a just a really charming, little, mountain town.
Blackhawk is 12 miles from the house, as well. Technically, we are a Blackhawk address, but it’s actually closer to Nederland than it is to Blackhawk.
The Casita is also just a minute walk to Casa Colorado, which is our Bed and Breakfast. The Casa offers a high -end suite to one party at a time. So, if you have friends that want to come up for a night or two the Casa suite is a great option. There is also no minimum stay requirement at the Casa, so it’s a great way to have a few friends up for even just one night without needing to crowd the Casita.

For an occasion or group that desires more than the basics, Casa Colorado is the perfect location! The B&B offers a unique stay for one party at a time and we cater to all types of dietary restrictions and offer organic, local fair whenever possible. We have fresh eggs daily from our hardworking hens!

If you are looking for a great getaway for just you and your partner, husband, or wife and would like to be pampered a bit more with breakfast each day, visit Casa Colorado! Located just 1 minute from the Casita, Casa Colorado is a B&B with over 4,000 sq. ft. to enjoy and relax. It is also built from mostly reclaimed and custom pieced material. Walls are alive with murals, embedded fossils and stones, and warm rustic texturing. The vivid décor includes furnishings and art from around the globe, incorporating works from local artists including stained glass work, mosaic pieced mirrors, re-purposed Japanese shoji screens and handmade tiles. Located at 9200 feet elevation, our mountain home enjoys constant sunlight and solar gain, filling the house with a warmth that sets this house apart from other rentals. Epic views of the Continental Divide bring the natural beauty of Colorado indoors to this impressive home.
The Casita and Casa Colorado Bed and Breakfast are both conveniently located 1 hr. from Denver and 40 minutes from Boulder and are a just a short walk from each other in the mountains 7 miles south east of Nederland. It's the perfect getaway from the city life!! Come pamper yourself with the relaxing, cool breezes at 9,000 ft!! If you are interested in the B&B option The B&B offers a custom suite to one party at a time and offers an all organic, local cuisine served up custom to your palette or dietary restrictions!! Fresh eggs Daily!!Enjoy the private sauna, steam shower, hot tub, and 143 in. home theatre!!
Both the B&B and the Casita are also 420 friendly! Enjoy everything Colorado!

Artistic design is not the only element that distinguishes the Casa from other rental properties. Luxury amenities make our home the ultimate retreat. Enjoy complete privacy with amenities designed for relaxing and settling into a spa-style atmosphere. Steam, soak and sauna away the day!

The large living area with a home theater is a perfect place to enjoy a film or Direct Tv on the big screen! The mini bar offers tea service and a refrigerator so that guests can keep snacks at hand. We provide high end linens and stock our suite with organic local soaps and teas, just a few of the details that makes the Casa stay unique.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: While working on the road as a touring musician, Scott purchased Casa Colorado and began the arduous task of building his greatest creation, piece by piece. A few years later the vision came together when Morgan moved in and they decided to share their home, primarily as a B&B, and later as an entire house rental. By choosing to stay closer to home, they are able to spend more time shaping their vision for a more sustainable lifestyle. Both passionate about high altitude gardening, today they are a little bit farmer, artists, chefs, and professionals that wear many hats to complete the jobs on what they joke has become a mini mountain farm.

Why the Owner Chose Black Hawk, CO, USA:
The Casita is a very special feeling house with artistic touches that stand out in a very unique and special way. The home feels open and airy and has lots of natural light. It's designed with amenities and design in mind for travelers who want it all.The Casita and Casa Colorado Bed and Breakfast are also 420 friendly!! We want you to come and feel naturally at home when you stay here. Ask about our 420 friendly 'bar'! Come experience all that Colorado has to offer!! If you have more people in your party that might want to come up for a night or two, the B&B is conveniently located right up the road and has a first class suite with a private steam shower, sauna, home theatre and hot tub. You can choose to rent the suite with or without breakfast. Also, the B&B has no minimum stay, so if you want friends to come up and just stay for a couple of nights, it's the perfect option. We hope to see you soon here at the Casita or at the B&B!!!

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The environment we've created at Casa Colorado is just as much about entertainment and hospitality as it is about lifestyle. We are committed to filling our space with creativity and inspiration, whether it be in the form of our gardens, art we display or the food we eat. In this house you will experience the vibrancy infused into its creation and celebrated on a daily basis. Like many of our guests, you may end up leaving here inspired to shape your space to incorporate more art, more sustainability and a new recipe or two!
