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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

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

Why the Owner Chose Black Hawk, CO, USA:
We love Colorado and hope to move here when our youngest son finishes school.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
