Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

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, spices, coffee, tea and hot chocolate. (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, with detergent, 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 now has free WI-FI for guests! Also, a flat screen TV with DirectTV, 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 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 two 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!

About Viveca Pirtle Stidsen

My husband and I met in Colorado while skiing and try to get back here whenever we can!

Viveca Pirtle Stidsen purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Viveca Pirtle Stidsen chose Black Hawk

We love Colorado and hope to move here when our youngest son finishes school.

What makes this cabin unique

We love visiting the cabin any time of the year! Each season has it's special attributes.

The summer is great for hiking, mountain biking and exploring and it's never hot!

The fall is beautiful when the fall leaves start changing and the weather is still nice for hiking.

Winter is the best. I love the dry Colorado snow and having a cozy fire. Eldora Ski resort is only 15 minutes away and is never crowded.

The spring is a treat since you never know what the weather will bring. We had snow May 30th one year! Of course it was gone in the morning when the bright sun came out.

I usually make a pot of coffee in the morning and then take Jax, our goldendoddle, for his morning walk around Thorn Pond while the coffee is brewing.

Wonderful, cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT time, it was perfect for the 6 of us, with 2 couples and 2 singles. Bathrooms were sufficient space. Bedrooms were plenty, with lots of blankets. Love the large kitchen, and even had an electric skillet to be able to make my french toast my boys love so much! View out the back was incredible. Wonderful place, and would definitely return if we are back in that area again!

Everything about this cabin was just what we were hoping for our 3rd annual family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is remote yet within driving distance of things we wanted to do in places near the area such as Nederland, Idaho Springs, Boulder. We even drove the extra miles to Golden and the Red Rocks Amphitheater. A car is definitely needed but we were OK with the driving of 15-30 miles to do these things especially because the scenery was so captivating along the way. The cabin is very spacious for 8 adults and the amenities provided included everything we needed to feel right at home. The kitchen is huge and the grill is brand new so we were able to make many meals in the comfortable cabin setting. There are games, puzzles and even the original Nintendo setup (which the adult kids enjoyed ). The cabin was so clean when we arrived and beds so comfortable, too. We were able to meet the property manager/owner. He was so cordial and was happy to offer his help, if neeeded, during our stay. Also, the owners were very gracious and prompt in their replies to my questions prior to our arrival. My first impression of the owners was a great one and made me sure of my choice in choosing their cabin home for our vacation ! Thank you again for opening up your cabin home to our family! We had a great time and made memories that will last us a lifetime! We will be sure to plan a return visit soon.
