About Donna Brannan

Don, born and raised in Colorado married Donna, a New York Native over 34 years ago. Don has enjoyed the cabin since childhood, hiking, biking, skiing, hunting, fishing, climbing and exploring with his parents. We found a trail behind the cabin where a covered wagon had once tipped over. To this day old glass bottles can be dug up at this site. The trail opens to a large meadow and bubbling stream.

Why Donna Brannan chose Black Hawk

A family jewell passed on, now for others to enjoy as well. Colorado history abounds in the area. It is near Peak to Peak Highway which has the most beautiful sights available on the front range.

What makes this cabin unique

A huge feature is that the back door leads onto the Roosevelt National Forest. Hiking & mountain biking trails are feet away to springs and a nearby river. Wildlife prevails in the area; moose, dear and elk are common. Ghost towns and 4 wheel drive trails surround the area, and are a short drive away.

The cabin was open and inviting, very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is situated in a beautiful location with hiking just outside your door, skiing moments away and for the gambler in you, Black Hawk is very close also. We enjoyed beautiful mountain views, hikes with the dogs and a family of moose just outside the door. The fireplace works like a dream and added to the comfort and coziness of our stay. The location is perfect for those who are uninterested in the I-70 traffic, most of our journey we were the only car on the road.

Very comfortable and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the Dancin' Bear cabin and all the amenities. Lots of space, warm wood burning stove, and even had TV/internet for the times we wanted it. We expect to go back soon and will refer to our friends.

Cabin was really clean, everything was great!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised, except the 3rd bed room didn't have heat which wasn't a huge issue. Fire place was awesome and cabin was very cozy!

Quiet mountain nights in a cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved loved loved the cabin! Thank you for all your help making sure we knew how to enter after a late night arrival time! The pictures do not do the cabin justice at all-it is so cozy and tucked away far enough to see the stars, hike a bit, and relax but yet close enough to reach several places within a short drive.

Thanks again and we will definitely be back one day soon!

Dan, Misti, Lexi, and Drake Gaston
